They said the Queensland police need to stick to what they're good at.

Someone accused them of cyberbullying poor Nickelback fans.

And it's not even the first time Queensland police have trolled Nickelback.

Suspicious package received as part of @QPSmedia secret santa. It will now be destroyed #BlameCanada #JokesOnUs

In fact, they don't seem to be fans of Canadian musicians at all.

They gave us Celine, Nickelback & Bieber but we’ll still help with their PM's #G20 motorcade #nohardfeelings

Poor Nickelback. 😢
