Man Arrested For Trying To Dump Eight Tonnes Of Manure On Politician's Doorstep

There are loads of reasons why some people might not like politicians.

While some might get a few things wrong, there are plenty more who are just trying to do the right thing and help lead their constituency.

But while the public might rattle off an angry tweet or even call their MP's office to complain, not many people will go as far as this bloke from Tasmanian, Australia.

The 51-year-old has been accused of trying to dump a whopping eight tonnes of animal manure on the doorstep of politicians.

Thankfully for MPs and the Premier, Tassie police stopped him before he was able to pull off his stunt at the Executive Building in Hobart.

According to the ABC, the man had written on social media that he had been through a lot over the past three years and wanted to know what his options were at Centrelink.

After exhausting all possible avenues, the exasperated man declared he was going to head to the Executive Building to have a chat to the Premier.

"So in the morning I'm going to show them I'm not being treated like shit anymore and I mean eight tonne of it. Stay tuned and I'm serious," he wrote.

He was arrested yesterday morning for 'failed to comply with a police direction after he parked his truck of animal manure outside 15 Murray Street'.

But it seems like this wasn't an original idea, with the act being committed in the US three years ago.

A 47-year-old Ohio man was accused of dumping manure at his county's Democratic Party headquarters.

James Pinell, who told AP News that he was anti-abortion, was charged with criminal mischief, a third-degree misdemeanour, for dumping the load. That was the second time Pinnell had dumped poo outside The Warren County's Democratic Party headquarters.
