Royal Commissions a wast of public money?

The New South Wales Opposition has renewed calls for a Royal Commission into the Department of Corrective Services.

[But Noble Cause Corruption prevents any such thing. Prisoners in NSW don't have that luxury and that means rotten Ron Woodham can continue to make up allegations against Prisoners and lie to the people of NSW about it.]

Upper House Liberal MP John Ryan has claimed in Parliament there is clear evidence that serious levels of corruption exist throughout the administration of the department. Mr Ryan outlined allegations yesterday of a governor blowing the cover of an inmate who was acting as an informant for the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).

He says many reports of complaints and allegations of corruption have not been dealt with or have been kept secret.

"There is excellent evidence that a properly constituted Royal Commission into the department would uncover levels of corruption equal to or worse than that which was uncovered by the Wood Royal Commission into the New South Wales police service," Mr Ryan said.

Bob Carr in September 02 said "A 100 million for a Royal Commission, for what? Silly spending public money on a Royal Commission to find out what went wrong with the current policy when we can be spending the money on fixing the current policy."

A spokesperson for Justice Action Mr Gregory Kable said, "He was talking about the failure of the Department of Family and Community Service whilst shoving notified abused children into their grave, while it was thought that we didn't notice."

" You just roll the bad head of the department and put on a new head. Exhume the bodies of the children and wave a magic wand over them with the money that would be used for a Royal Commission. "

"Oh, and take the to-morrow pill and forget about yesterday. Get the pill of Michael Costa."

"When something goes wrong and the public want account of it or it's in the governments favour. Mostly, one has to wait for Sixty Minutes or Four Corners after they have been briefed by Carr to let off some steam for good old Gov."

"The Opposition and minor political parties usually jump up and down trying to get a Royal Commission but without the drama of Sixty Minutes or Four Corners there is not enough public determination to order a Royal Commission. Then if you get a Royal Commission it is based on what Carr's brief was and that is all. "

"Shows something doesnt it? Carr is such good bloke? Taking care of corruption that was set up to let of some steam and let the government off the hook in terms of the real damage caused to the community."

"Of course the real damage cannot be looked at because it was at all material times Noble Cause Corruption and Gov ordered its elite to attack with out any rule of law that you or I are subject to."

"In short it just didn't happen, and in fact Gov will do everything it can to delete you or it even veto public officers like the Ombudsman and the Police Integrity Commission or the ICAC, in fact all arms of Government including the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission."

"Further, I can prove it. Ask me for the evidence when police miss informed my local politician Clover Moore with false and misleading information that did cause me distress about the grave possibility of that misinformation could cause me serious injury or even death from the police lies."

"My death most likely by the bullet of a police officer in an isolated location. Three witnesses to none which police tried to set up using the Police Air Wing. But you won't here about that when they claimed I suffered mental illness because I made a complaint against them so they attack my integrity? (Their lies)."

"They won't tell you about the day two Poll Air Choppers tracked me in Rushcutters Bay Park while a young baby dehydrated in 40-degree heat in a BMW at Cabramatta. Police couldn't find the car stolen by someone with the baby in it even though it was around the corner."

"The Police "The choppers were not available their being serviced". The choppers at that time were being used by the elite police for security and not for general police work or emergencies. But for games over the death of a helpless citizen. When I went to the authorities no one was taking notes!"

Tele Tales
So bend over, and cop this. I sent your paper articles in relation to the Loser Gang (bikies) in particular Rebells, Polair and off duty police working together.

"True as it is Bob Carr is so right. He knows that after the money is spent on all the details of a Royal Commission then very little will change anyway. Take a good look at past Royal Commissions like Deaths in Custody and there is little or no change down the track. In fact the Commission's recommendations are ambushed, undermined as with the police Royal Commission."

"I might add in line with the flawed Westminster System. So where does that leave NSW citizens? Spin and Lip Service!"

Who is bad?

Super Rat? M5? M11? K8? N2? So I trust that some people who, with the photos and guns guessed that a jury would quickly establish a case against a profiled person whom, you just had a picture and a history of. Common knowledge? The government knew their victims would take the blame. Not just chess in court, 'moving around the pieces', but 'putting false evidence, or not enough evidence before the jury."

The community questions ICAC's slagging and fobbing you off?

Concerns have been raised about the investigative capacity of the New South Wales Independent Commission against Corruption (ICAC), after revelations that a large number of people it has found to have acted corruptly have never been prosecuted in the courts.

[The ICAC, Commissions, Ombudsman, Police Integrity Commission (PIC), and numerous Tribunals etc, are all arms of government set up as an insurance police for the government's 3 or 4 year election terms. In short they'll be out of office by the time you may be lucky enough to have your matter heard.

SKIPPY: You will count the cost when you're damaged and you won't get a hearing or a forum by the Gov to prove your case, unless you have the money for a team of lawyers to take out a civil claim for damages.


The NSW government has finally appointed somebody (Justice John Nader) to head up its Innocence Panel and has produced leaflets and forms for people convicted of serious crimes (eg murder) to apply for DNA testing if they believe it may help prove their innocence. You can get the info by phoning 1300 881 717 or writing to the panel at GPO Box 45 Sydney NSW 2001.

NSW Department of Corrective Services attack right to privacy
Corrective Services Minister Richard Amery has a problem attacking prisoners right to privacy.It seems to us that a civil society is best served when social justice laws are applied to all people regardless of their circumstances. Once government starts making exceptions which disadvantage certain groups and individuals, such laws are meaningless.

Litigants are drowning: in the High Court
There were so many self represented litigants appearing in the High Court that more than half of its registry staff's time was taken up in dealing with them. The "go it alone" litigants have to take on tasks well above their qualified league causing them stress. This growing problem cannot be left unchecked.

Everyone wants to get out of 'jail' but 'Framed' wants life: Rotten Ron on the ropes On 2 May 2002, Justice Action received a faxed letter from Manager of DCS Operations Support Branch saying that, in his view, articles in Framed edition #42 'lack balance and integrity' and he is therefore 'not prepared to recommend this issue of Framed for placement in to correctional centre libraries.' Prisoners and those concerned about prisoner issues have very few sources of information.

Methadone addicts formed within: 'NSW Prisons'
The New South Wales Opposition has accused the State Government of turning jailed heroin users into Methadone addicts.

Murder charge first for DNA data bank link, but not the same as solving the murder Mass DNA testing of prisoners has [allegedly] led to the first NSW case of a person being charged with a previously unsolved murder as a result of a controversial gene-matching data bank.

Medical Records: Alex Mitchell's lost world
Perhaps we can get your medical report and spew it around publicly so you can see how it feels. But surely we do not have to go that far. And of course we are law-abiding citizens and I should think it would be enough to remind you of your ethics to report at all.

Prisoners can prove innocence for $20?
Les Kennedy Daily Telegraph reported today that" Prisoners who believe that DNA will prove they were wrongly convicted will have the chance to prove their innocence for a mere $20 administration fee. The move comes 20 months after NSW inmates were asked to provide DNA for comparison with a databank of DNA from unsolved crime scenes for possible convictions.

NSW opposition pledges review of detention laws
A spokesperson for Justice Action Ms Anal Advice said " NSW Prisons are a sex offence if you have been raped, bashed and squatted down to be strip searched. People should be diverted from going there at all material times".

Civil libertarians condemn planned changes to prisoners' privacy rights The New South Wales Government is using a recent case involving [framed] serial killer Ivan Milat to justify its decision to remove the privacy rights of prisoners. But really just another attack on Ivan Milat from Parliament House.

Australian prisons are fast becoming the new asylums of the third millennium. The prison industry is booming, while Australia spends far less on mental health services than similar countries.

The punishment: Is the 'crime'
The punishment is the crime according to retired chief Justice of the Family Court of Australia Justice Alistair Nicholson. "Smacking a child ought to be seen as assault".

Mr. & Mrs. Mandatory Sentencing
Well congratulations to the bride and groom. Could you please be upstanding and raise your glasses for Mr. And Mrs. Mandatory.

Just wipe your arse on Ivan again Minister?
Mr Amery Minister for Corrective services has a problem with finding a toilet roll to wipe his bottom. Justice Action is appalled at the attacks by Amery and others in parliament on Ivan Milat's right to privacy and their attacks on the Privacy Commissioner and his office.

NSW prisons - primary industry bailed up!
In many quiet regional centres around NSW there is a new primary industry shaping up. It has something to do with Bail but not with bales. The minister for Agriculture Richard Amery who also has the prisons portfolio is now committed to farming prisoners.

NSW Parliament Bitter Pills To Swallow?
One delusion pill: So people who investigate their own mistakes make sure there was no mistake or someone else made the mistake. Perhaps you're not biased and you will be honest about it.

The Government is likely to abolish the Inspector General of Corrective Services position The Mulawa inspection report recommendations below strictly illustrate how important he is.

Black Nexus
The Separation of Powers Doctrine is nowcontaminated witharangeofcolours, now leaving us with a black shirt on a once blue bridge that crossed that thin blue line. The 'Amery and Woodham show'.

Prison Mind Games-Do they exist?
Directives are given inside the prison system that are not consistent with the law in NSW. And not in the good interests of the health and well being of the prisoners.
