My God! This is happening in Australia! IN AUSTRALIA!!!
[See new post Hammond Family Get Support From MP for an update, Feb 12.]
Two days ago, January 19 2016, the Hammond family in the outback gold-mining town of Kalgoorlie Western Australia were terrorised in their home by police. There appears to be a connection between this and the fact they have been speaking out about compensation for vaccine injury.
Two days after the birth of their 8-weeks-premature baby in September 2012, Ben Hammond and his wife Tanya had to have the dTpa vaccine (diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough), otherwise the hospital would refuse them access to their baby. Both parents had the shots and Ben became ill soon afterwards, and 12 days after the shot he was found on the kitchen floor paralysed.
Since then, Ben has been working through horrendous health problems, and although he has learned to walk again after extensive rehabilitation, he is completely numb from the chest down, has no bowel or bladder function, has limited liver and kidney function, has no immune system worth mentioning, is in constant pain, and is housebound. He has been diagnosed with ADEM, an autoimmune condition similar to MS. Ben was strong and healthy and worked as a mine manager before this happened.
The Hammonds have 5 children, a mortgage and huge medical costs. The benefits they get don’t cover their expenses and they are currently at serious risk of losing their house.
Tanya Hammond has been very public about the need for a No Fault Vaccination Compensation Scheme, doing TV, radio and newspaper interviews since this happened. Tanya and Ben believe if they had to have the vaccine then there should be a compensation plan for injuries like Ben’s.
Last November Tanya was dragged out of her car by a local woman and assaulted for supposedly scaremongering about vaccines, shortly after she was interviewed on local TV. Tanya had her jaw, windpipe and bone in her neck broken. The woman was charged and she got off with a fine and a good behaviour bond.
Then things got worse, Tanya wrote this 2 days ago…
Tanya Hammond’s account
At 6 am this morning our family were still in bed when we got woken up by cops breaking down our front door! They removed us from our room (where we were sleeping with our 3-year-old) and they tried to force Ben to the floor. I was screaming that he couldn’t because he is disabled, but they wouldn’t listen. I had to watch him trying to get down, but since he couldn’t they slammed him roughly to the ground and pinned him to the floor with a gun to his head.
I was pinned to the ground with a gun against my head also but I kept trying to ask about my baby and trying to see where he was. Each time I tried they kept slamming my head against the floor yelling GET DOWN! GET DOWN! My baby was so upset but I couldn’t help him, I felt so powerless.
My 11 yr old woke up to my screaming and crying just before he had his room raided by 10 police. They destroyed our 2 front doors, terrified and traumatised my family and when I asked what’s going on they said to wait till the camera gets here before they will tell us. Why would they need a camera crew when we had done nothing wrong? How long had they been planning this?
A good 10 mins later (still pinned to the floor with guns pointed at us) the camera arrived. They told us they had a warrant to search our home for making and selling CRYSTAL METH!! I couldn’t believe my ears, they thought we were drug dealers?!?
Our family is struggling to stay on top of all of the challenges that have tried to destroy us since the Whooping Cough vaccine took away Ben’s health and they think we have the time and energy to make illegal drugs?!? I just couldn’t believe what was happening? I was helpless to protect my kids and my disabled husband, watching them force him to the ground and my little boy screaming while I was pinned to the floor and I couldn’t help them…
They found Ben’s catheters and they categorised them as “sharps” they also took Ben’s medicinal cannabis plant that he uses for managing his pain and his smoking device he uses to administer it and they are charging Ben for that. HE NEEDS THAT to manage the constant pain he is in, nothing else works as pain meds cause him to urinate blood.
Needless to say but they found NO evidence of any Meth or Meth making equipment so they put our family through hell and traumatised all of us for absolutely NOTHING!

They need support, don’t you think?
What do our authorities need? Better not put my thoughts in print!
