State may adopt tough ACT law

FOR the past four years police have wanted the NSW Government to tighten the bail laws for repeat offenders to give them more control over the population and to silence critics or agitators. Police have lobbied for more power in light of Noble Cause Corruption and corruption within the Force generally.

The Government said last night it was working on a proposal. But the government is seeking more control over the population by introducing draconian legislation constantly.

The Attorney General's Department is corrupt. It's working party, in operation since January, appears likely to adopt a position of near-automatic refusal of bail for repeat offenders opposed to community solutions for social problems.

GKCNN understands that the working party's recommendations are due by the end of June and most likely will recommend adopting the ACT's bail laws, which are draconian.

ACT law says, "a court or authorised officer must not grant bail to the accused unless satisfied that special or exceptional circumstances exist justifying the granting of bail". While this clause is tough allowing a repeat offender to get bail, it is considered far tougher than the current NSW law. Since June last year, NSW bail laws have stated there is no presumption in favour of bail for [alleged] repeat criminal offenders. [?]

The Opposition's legal affairs spokesman Andrew Tink will be working today to get an immediate toughening of bail laws. He will present a bill to Parliament today, which is proposing to tighten this situation so there is a presumption against bail for [alleged] repeat offenders. [?] Tink said weak existing bail laws allowed repeat offenders to continually walk free from court after being 'accused' of another crime.

GKCNN has consistently highlighted draconian bail laws. Earlier this year, The Daily Terror exploited another case. Adam Speyer, 22, who was continually, granted bail, despite being born 22 years ago. Apparently they forgot to mention his first mistake when he dropped his babies bottle off his high chair and was granted bail.

THE FOX: Why does one case set a precedent for the whole population? Have we gone stark raving mad? Or is it because of some loser at the Daily Terror bends over and cops it off the government or police. No brain to think? Or the politics of selling papers?

Why blame existing laws? The magistrate whoever that was? Granted bail in the Bardakos domestic violence case? Why wasn't the magistrate named? It granted bail in the domestic violence case when he/she had Bardakos's previous history and the current alleged offences in front of him/her. Instead of admissions that the magistrate should have used common sense and made a mistake, by not holding him in custody and offering him some social support, the ruling class argue for tighter restrictions on bail laws, for the whole community.Why is that?

Killer freed without support?

The evidence was clear. Bardakos had repeatedly threatened Ms van Koeverden and her family after their relationship soured in early March.

If you want to do something about domestic violence teach life skills that include conflict resolution and communication. Perhaps you can get away from the Barramundi for while and read a few books?

Of course there are definitely no repeat offenders in the Police Force?


Abolition of 800 year old double jeopardy law a crime
The 800-year-old rule prevents a person who's acquitted of a criminal charge from ever being re-tried for that offense.

MPs told of police corruption
Corruption and mismanagement are still entrenched in the NSW Police, and problems at the highest levels are "whitewashed", according to evidence given yesterday to a federal parliamentary committee.

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."
