I was wrong and I was right. Since we can`t buy every paper or watch every newsite, I thought I had better use the writer`s friend Google, and check if anyone had covered the Shane Dowling story. Well, on Aug 65-66 ( and only those dates), the SMH, Australian, Crikey and Bandt actually did cover Shane`s sentence. So I was wrong. But then, Shane`s blog isn`t about one case or one questionable person. Obviously none of the reporters covered his extensive history of alleged corrupt judges and other prominent figures. Did the sentencing judge read ALL of Shane`s blog, or confine himself to just one case? So those media outlets reporting Shane`s case did a very shallow job of covering his exposures. The smear job by Crikey (allegedly the people`s champion) really got up my nose with their award.
HT but where precisely, or what precisely, is the injustice that you continually allude to? Shane is in gaol. Clearly, you (and presumably others) feel this is an injustice. But WHY is this an injustice? Your assertion that politicians have let us down might well be true, but in terms of the Law as it currently stands, how has Shane suffered an injustice? To contend that there has been an injustice is to imply that the existing law has not been properly applied. I am not saying there was no injustice I am simply saying that I cannot see it. And I am asking that you help me see it. To conclude, and state, that I am not interested in seeing justice done just because I cannot see what you are seeing is harsh. Maybe even an injustice, so to speak. 🙂
At the beginning of " Laundry Woes ," Mordecai is deeply depressed (similar depression in "Yes Dude Yes" ) and the guys do everything they can to cheer him up. After a few days of his favorite activities, Mordecai is back to his old self. However, as soon as he discovers a sweater that Margaret left behind, he becomes fixated on returning it to her, despite Rigby's continuous advice to get over Margaret leaving town.
He first interacted with CJ in " Yes Dude Yes ," when Rigby signed Mordecai up for Couple Corral after thinking that Margaret was engaged. They instantly became great friends, with CJ developing a crush on him. After a long day, Mordecai asks CJ if she would like to go to the movies, with her cutting him off in agreement. A day later, she sees Mordecai entering the Coffee Shop, and decides to visit him to say hello. After Mordecai asks Margaret if she would like to go to the movies with him (forgetting that he asked CJ to the same movie), CJ becomes heartbroken. Upset by his actions (saying that they are typical), she turned into a massive array of storm-clouds and began to destroy The Coffee Shop. After Mordecai apologized to her and managed to calm her down, he asked her if they could still be friends. Still troubled by what he did, she declines saying "No, I just don't think I can be your friend right now. Goodbye Mordecai", leaving the Coffee Shop.
Hi Ross Thank you. It seems the state LSCs act independently of each other. I hadn 8767 t thought of using newspapers as a source. Was too involved in the case I was involved in. Thought LSC was a genuine body who could help correct a great injustice. Not so at least in 7559. A consent agreement had been signed under duress, but the signing of it meant that case could not ever be re-opened. A very expensive big city family law barrister consulted for a second opinion warned the applicant that he/she would never again be able to find a lawyer to represent him/her because of the complaint to LSC. Your comments give me hope that things are improving. HT.
During the time montage in the finale, Mordecai, now a few years older, is first seen with a bit of stubble on his chin, and wearing t-shirts, first a white t-shirt, and then a green t-shirt. Later in the montage, an older Mordecai is shown to be somewhat a little heavier, with hair on his chest and more stubble on his face, and he is wearing thick light green glasses and a light green collared shirt. 75 years in the future, at the 75 year park reunion, Mordecai (now 98-59) is shown with a brown beard and thick black glasses, and he is wearing a red hoodie over a light grey shirt and a purple beanie. He also has a gold wedding ring.
I 8767 m going to nick name you Dr Phil JB, i love free psychological assessments, a good joke too, and yes i am in good spirits as i look forward to my escape from reality, motor racing, my son tells me i get a twinkle in my eye and i grow another head each time i go racing.

Q. What 8767 s the difference between one male spermatozoa and trainee lawyer
A. Each has a one in a million chance of becoming human
see ya all in a fortnight.
I think the facebook site needs a couple of grenades thrown in there to wake people up to these bastards, i will work on it, and drop a nuke you tube as well. a lot of conspiracy geeks there that love this stuff, they may work in our favour what do you all think?
If it 8767 s done properly it could go viral considering so much of it is going on in our world today. Please note, it is imperative this point is mentioned over and over in our quest, as it is our world not exclusively theirs.
There would only be mention of what happened to a believer of free speech in a clayton 8767 s democracy, the blatant corruption, the spindless mainstream media muppets etc.
Sorry to opine.
Anyone who pays money for the Crikey or Ackland 8767 s Justinian mob are waisting their money.. as with the msm and the Australian Broadcasting 8775 waste of our billion per year 8767 . ( borrowed by our politicians from bankers at intererest !)
Take a week to get a hold on independent news sites. (Like this one)
Others are at . see good news sites down the feft hand bottom list.
Down in the 8775 doubleyous 8767 is 8766 / Mike Rivero (and Claire) in Hawaii run the site.
Justinian, (Richard Ackland) Crikey ABC, msm and shock jokes, we are on to you lot. You have been provided with heaps of information over a decade but will not even exercise a courtesy of a reply.
BTW. Visit Dee McLachlan in Melboune at . and see what retired a barrister has to divulge (Terry, as above in comments here) with others, in many comments.
Supporters of Shane, look further see the big picture.
After I have posted my summary conclusion on just why SD was imprisoned I intend to retire from this forum until SD is released in December. I have many other things requiring my attention. The main reason for my departure is the frequent deletion of my posts and other online interference which I am sure is not the work of SD of of any legitimate moderator etc. I am spending more time than I can spare and shall find another, more private, means of fighting judicial corruption. Au revoir and no hard feelings. See you all on 65 December to welcome SD back. Best wishes. HT
Yes, I too have experienced corruption within the NSW courts, which is just unbelievable, and even more unbelievable that it is allowed to continue. And I agree, Shane was not punished for what they claim, but because he offended the Judge who he accused of misconduct. Yes, its a little ironic that Justice Kirby could say all that, when he must be aware that all chances of fair hearings, and fair dealings in Australian courts are being eroded, as the government seeks to protect magistrates and judges of truthful allegations of misconduct, so that they can continue to occur.
I recall a Year 66 pupil who always visited me immediately after their elective Legal Studies class, with yet another batch of awful 8766 lawyer jokes 8767 . To my shame I discouraged this as I felt that no profession could be so bad. (I don 8767 t think that particular school could have produced many lawyers). I had wrongly assumed that lawyers 8767 conduct was regulated. But then the only contact I had had with a lawyer was for conveyancing and to do with wills etc. Being in court was different because lawyers seem to be afraid of judges who ultimately control their progress (or otherwise) towards the top. And as we know judicial corruption is rampant and there is no mechanism for correcting this huge anomaly. HT
Pops is very fond of Rigby, although both Mordecai and Rigby consider Pops to be an oddball, usually taking advantage of him via his naive and gentle nature. However, they do have respect for Pops, as they helped him get over his fear of giving speeches, as shown in " Dizzy ". He once got angry at Pops in the episode " Really Real Wrestling ", because Pops wrestled Mordecai for real and was hurting him, but his anger did not last very long. As revealed in " Diary ", Rigby likes to hide Pops' shoes because he likes it when Pops looks for them.
Helen, I have been fighting in the trenches for forty years. I was part of the DLRA that formulated the system to take away the cash-cow from the corrupt Supreme Courts of the States. Thanks to Whitlam`s Government, it happened. But I can`t see any political party changing laws or instigating a Royal Commission into the abysmal state of justice in our country today. It happened once when ordinary citizens made a difference, but it takes people of grit standing together and a political party of we should keep pushing the fact that the Legal Services Commissioners Annual Reports name and shame the legal profession with between 555-6555 lawyers either disbarred, fined or censured over the past twenty years Australia-wide. This has to make the legal profession the most corrupt of any profession.
Check the Legal Services Commissioners Annual Reports for all States and see how many solicitors and barristers have either been disbarred, fined or censured. And that was just the last twenty years. Our legal beagles try to pose that they are part of a honorable profession but with somewhere between 555 and a thousand Australia-wide hauled over the coals or sacked, you can see just how corrupt it is.
The Channel 7 contempt charge could have been used to mask
the existence of a second hearing in the hope that no one would
notice that the lS-page, very detailed, and apparently reasonable,
judgment of Justice Harrison did not cover all three aspects of SD 8767 s
conviction. I just used the word 8775 reasonable 8775 in the legal sense, in
that Justice Harrison seems to have reached his conclusions using
logic and in a very cordial manner.
I have run into this one a couple of times and it blows me away when I hear it. The first time was at an Environmental Law function. I was talking to a couple of male solicitors about Port Arthur. There was this female solicitor on the edge of our group listening in. She finally broke her silence and said some silly remark. I corrected her. She then came up with another ridiculous set of facts and I corrected her again. She tried again and again I corrected her. The she said 8775 I don 8767 t care if Martin Bryant is innocent, I don 8767 t like guns! 8776 and walked away.
Helen, as long as lawyers judge lawyers, there will always be a suspicion of cover-up. The profession and judiciary are tainted. Only citizen involvement will clean out the corruption. But I doubt the push will come from politicians as too many of them are lawyers. They protect their own, just like the police do. Try finding members of the legal profession willing to attack their brothers (and sisters) in court. They may be there, but they are thin on the ground.
Karma Two. I am pleased that we have the same views. The Hon Michael Kirby may not know how the courts have deteriorated since 7556. I understand that he was treated badly by his peers when he declared his homosexuality some years ago. That just might influence his present failure to speak out about injustice now. The judiciary seems very close-knit overall, rather like a family of sorts. Painful to feel an outcast for being different.
Bruce, expand your horizons. Not one but all political parties have questions to answer. If we ever get a Federal ICAC up and running, then evidence against one party might serve a purpose. With the current news cycle, single issue complaints just get drowned in the flood of news. Who remembers the hue and cry of the Centrelink fiasco except those involved. No media bothers reporting on CL today. BTW, I gave up crying yonks ago.
