Magistrate blasts immigration dept

A Perth magistrate says the immigration department "effectively sabotaged" police investigations into a riot by detainees on Christmas Island and allowed key players to escape justice.

Magistrate Stephen Malley on Thursday ruled on whether five Sri Lankan Tamil detainees took part in a riot at the detention centre on November 21 last year.

He said it was "bizarre" that within 48 hours of the extremely violent riot, the immigration department shipped off 40 detainees to mainland detention centres, many of whom were heavily involved in the violence.

The actions of the immigration department "effectively sabotaged" investigations into the riot by the Australian Federal Police (AFP), Mr Malley said.

The court heard that Afghan detainees were violently set upon by Sri Lankan detainees following a dispute between the two groups.

Mr Malley said rioters had armed themselves with tree branches, pool cues, mop handles, chairs and parts of soccer goal posts that were dismantled during the violence.

He said that following the riot the immigration department showed "little or no regard whether those they were releasing committed serious or criminal acts".

The department showed "reckless disregard" for the significance of the events, the magistrate said.

He found that the AFP had limited assistance from the immigration department.

But he said that the video interviews conducted by police were "poorly done and in most instances worthless".

Photo boards used by police for identification during the investigation were also inadequate, the magistrate said.

He also found that staff employed by the firm Serco, charged with running the centre, were "not well trained in the manner in which to deal with these events".

Mr Malley said the case had been frustrating for the court given the inadequacy of the investigations and the "considerable money" invested in bringing five of the lesser players before the courts.

Those more seriously involved were in effect "assisted to evade prosecution", he said.

The magistrate found only two of the Sri Lankans guilty of rioting and three of them guilty of weapons possession.

Two were found not guilty on both charges.

The five Sri Lankans sat together in the dock in the Perth Magistrates Court listening to the judgments through an interpreter.

Pranavan Sivasubramaniyam and Anburajan Anton were found guilty of rioting and were given six-month jail sentences suspended for six months.

They and Gnararajah Jesurajah were also found guilty of weapons possession and on those charges were each put on good behaviour bonds of $500.

Anantharajeevan Thangarasha and Kokilakumar Subramanian were found not guilty.

All five have been granted refugee status but have been kept in detention in Perth pending the result of their trial.

They should all be released from detention within weeks.

The court heard the riot started in the Green compound on Christmas Island and spread onto the sports oval.

Sri Lankans, agitated over an earlier confrontation in which Tamils were injured, gathered and pursued outnumbered Afghans, bashing many of them in a "violent confrontation based on racial lines", Mr Malley found.

"The evidence is of a running battle, with Afghanis retreating towards the medical compound chased by the Sri Lankan detainees."

In sentencing, Mr Malley told the three convicted men they had allowed their emotions to affect their better judgment.

He said it was important for people going through the detention process to understand they had to show restraint and good judgment.

The court earlier heard that detention centre officers were also injured in the riot and feared for their safety.

Another CLEAR indication that supports the migration of criminals into Australia under the 'refugee' banner.

Asylum-seekers are not criminals Immigration Minister tells angry residents

Chris Bowen has rejected claims people campaigning against detention centres being built in their communities are racists.

But the Immigration Minister insists asylum-seekers are safe and unlikely to escape detention and break the law.

Mr Bowen is trying to hose down community concerns after a meeting in Northam, about 100km northeast of Perth, on Thursday night in which the Department of Immigration and the local council answered questions from angry residents about the plan to house 1500 asylum-seekers in the community.

West Australian Labor senator Glenn Sterle was invited to the meeting but left when he was denied a chance to address the nearly 700-strong audience by the meeting's facilitator, former state Labor MP Gavan Troy.

Many residents raised concerns about the detention centre's impact on Northam's already strained and understaffed hospital and the contingency plans in place if there were a riot.

Senator Sterle condemned the constant "heckling and throwing of racist statements" for drowning out what were some genuine concerns about the centre.

Mr Bowen said he believed in freedom of speech and people should be able to raise views.

The meeting was dominated by people voicing intense hostility to the detention centre and to asylum-seekers, with some labelling them "criminals" who could escape and attack local women.

Mr Bowen said there had been very few escapes from detention centres.

"I'm not aware of any evidence that people who do escape from detention centres on very rare occasions undertake criminal acts," he said. "All the evidence shows that people while their claims are being processed conduct themselves in a perfectly appropriate way."

Liberal Premier Colin Barnett called on the Gillard government to halve the number of male asylum-seekers planned for the Northam detention centre, saying he understood the "great anxiety" expressed by furious locals. But he said T-shirts with "Bomb their boats" written on them worn by two residents at the meeting were inappropriate. He said it showed the issue needed to be handled carefully and there should have been proper prior consultation.

Northam resident Chris David yesterday claimed the meeting had been hijacked by a vocal minority bent on fearmongering.

Another resident, Nigel Sutton, said he was shocked when he heard One Nation state deputy president Lyn Vickery tell the meeting asylum-seekers would "slit your throat".

More deliberate Government Lies in the face of the nation in order to cover up the failure of the immigration system.

It is a fact that the suburbs (for example) in Sydney or Melbourne which house specific ethnic groups, shows that there is a HIGHER crime rate, than amongst other suburbs.

This fact is well known to the law enforcers (Police).

Stealing cars, re boding of prestige vehicles, drug manufacturing and dealing are CRIMINAL offences, therefore the people committing those crimes are CRIMINALS.

Many ethnic nationalities have racist backgrounds, BUT it is taboo to talk openly about this.

More deliberate lies propagated by the government to hide its failures.

Reality TV Romeo 'not a real geek' - TV Fraud

After fearlessly pursuing one beauty and kissing another in the spa, Beauty and the Geek contestant Daniel Iachini is fast becoming reality TV's most unlikely Romeo.

But the Adelaide molecular biologist's luck with the ladies has not come as a surprise to his friends who admit Iachini is far less geeky than he appears on the Seven Network show.

According to friends, Iachini is actually quite confident with women and has had several girlfriends in the past, including a long term relationship of 18 months.

Far from being an awkward geek, the 23-year-old is a regular on Adelaide's nightclub scene, where he has helped friends with promoting club events.

An acquaintance of Iachini's, who did not want to be named, said he was puzzled to see him as a contestant on Beauty and the Geek.

"Why is Daniel on that show? Since when did preppy G-Star clothes and a long beard make someone a geek?" he said.

"I'm all for people having fun and giving things a go but it's not really fair and it obviously compromises the integrity of the show when for starters, the geeks aren't really geeks."

Iachini's friend Stuart Duckworth, who handles promotions for the Electric Circus nightclub, said Iachini was a geek but not in the stereotypical sense.

"He's a scientist who has been studying for years and he is really smart," Mr Duckworth told ninemsn.

"But he's not the type of geek who doesn’t know how to dress well."

"I wouldn't consider him to be a really geeky person and he definitely would be a lot less geeky than the other people in the house."

Mr Duckworth said he was not surprised to hear that Iachini — who has been romantically pursuing personal shopper Kara Palmieri and on tonight's episode kisses twin Ellie in the spa — had been making advances towards the beauties in the house.

"He is the sort of person who has a lot of confidence and of course he is going to use it," he said.

"I think he probably went on the show intending to take full advantage of that."

Iachini's participation on Beauty and the Geek is not the first time he has appeared on TV.

In June the scientist was a contestant on the Nine Network's Millionaire Hot Seat where he was eliminated on his first question.

On the show Iachini appeared without his geeky wire-rimmed glasses and with a less scruffy beard — but revealed a penchant for dressing up as a geek by donning a bowtie.

The obviously confident Iachini won the audience over by cracking jokes about picking up women in nightclubs by saying he was a stripper rather than a scientist.

He also revealed he hoped to find a cure for breast cancer and had written his university thesis on the disease for his mother, who had been diagnosed with the condition.

The Seven Network has not yet responded to ninemsn's request to speak to Iachini.

Mum Kylie Eastwood jailed for plying five-year-old son with alcohol

A DRUNKEN mum who plied her five-year-old son with drink has been jailed.

Kylie Eastwood, 36, appeared at Latrobe Valley County Court this morning to be sentenced over the July 20, 2008 incident.

Judge Margaret Rizkalla said she was not satisfied Eastwood's sobriety over the past few years, with the exception of two relapses, constituted exsceptional circumstances and she had no choice but to impose an immediate custodial sentence.

Eastwood will serve eight months for giving her son at least four shots of home brewed Grappa, and four months over a previous suspended sentence she breached.

Judge Rizkalla said Eastwood would serve at least five months before she is eligible for parole.

"In the last two years or so you have clearly made some significant attempts to deal with your alcohol problems," she said.

"In my view this matter cannot be regarded as exceptional."

Judge Rizkalla said the most recent relapse, in April of this year, where Eastwood became intoxicated and turned on the gas in her home while her eight-month-old baby was in the house was another incident that showed inappropriate care of her children.

Yesterday, the court heard Eastwood cheered the boy on as he downed shots in her kitchen.

The father of the five-year-old said his son was told by Eastwood to blame him when she noticed him call for an ambulance.

"Steve" told the County Court, sitting in the Latrobe Valley, he heard his former de facto "woo-hooing" in the kitchen as his son downed shots of liquor.

He said Eastwood had returned home on July 20, 2008, from a friend's house with a big bottle of home-made grappa, which tests later found was 44 per cent ethanol. He said he confiscated it after he caught his son drinking it in the kitchen.

"I walked into the kitchen and saw my son with a shot glass to his lips," he said.

Steve said he took the bottle into the lounge but he soon heard Eastwood cheering in the kitchen and discovered his son drinking more shots. The five-year-old recorded a blood-alcohol reading of 0.09 after he was taken to hospital by ambulance.

Police estimate he consumed between four and six units of the home brew.

Eastwood yesterday pleaded not guilty to the charges. Her lawyer, John Verhoeven, argued she had not intended to cause physical harm to her son by allowing him to have some grappa.

But Judge Margaret Rizkalla said Eastwood knew the effects of alcohol and knew the impact it would have on her son.

"It was clear that she herself had significant alcohol problems," Judge Rizkalla said.

"She was aware of the effect of alcohol on herself and others. She was aware that a child was more vulnerable."

Leading Sen-Constable Sonia Cummings said she attended Eastwood's home in Gregory St to find the boy so drunk he was "making grunting noises" and walking into walls.

A tape recording of Eastwood's initial police interview in January 2009 revealed she told investigators her son "loved a drink".

"He likes his alcohol and asked me for a drink, and I told him, 'Well OK, just one'," Eastwood said.

"At the time I didn't see the severity of it but I tell you what, the next morning I did."

Another DELIBERATE FAILURE of the law.

Although she has been incarcerated, albeit upon a second offence, if it were a male who committed a similar / the same crime the child would be taken from them.

The far eastern side from where Ms. Eastwood resides is considered by many as a Trailer Park Trash neighbourhood.

Two Vic cops caught up in drug probe

Two Victorian police officers, who were involved in a relationship and became heroin addicts, are being investigated and may face criminal charges.

The man and woman had both worked as deep undercover operatives for Victoria Police.

The senior constables were arrested and suspended in August, while the male officer has since resigned.

The pair are accused of committing credit card fraud to fund their heroin use but neither has been charged yet.

The case has raised fears the pair's addiction may have put other undercover officers' lives at risk and compromised investigations into criminal gangs.

It has forced a review of all undercover cases, especially those in which they were involved.

Police spokeswoman Senior Constable Jo Stafford confirmed on Thursday that the officers were being investigated by the Ethical Standards Department (ESD), with the assistance of the Office of Police Integrity.

"Victoria Police can confirm that two senior constables are currently suspended from duty pending the outcome of an Ethical Standards Department investigation into drug and dishonesty offences," the spokeswoman said.

"As of today one of the members has tendered their resignation, which has been accepted.

"Given the ongoing nature of the investigation, it would be inappropriate to comment further."

A police source insisted that while they believed the pair were using heroin, it was happening when they were off-duty and had not compromised undercover operations, nor had sensitive information been supplied to criminals.

Footscray police station Inspector Tony Long confirmed that the officer who had quit while suspended was based there.

AAP understands the two officers had been involved in both full-time or deep undercover work - an area some officers work in long-term for up to 15 to 20 years - and temporary, local undercover positions.

They met while in deep undercover policing and also became exposed to drugs while in that field, where their addiction started, a police source said.

The policewoman had been a member of the force for seven years.

"Part of being undercover full-time is investigating serious organised crime and all sorts of areas, some might do it for 15 to 20 years and their neighbours would not know what they did for a living," the source said.

"You might end up a member of the Hells Angels, sitting around while they are doing drugs or something else happens. What do you do?"

4 Nov 2010

Nothing new there, and there are a LOT more than those two, except not all is reported in the mass media, and a LOT are swept under the carpet, depending on the influence.

Victoria Police are considered as one of the MOST CORRUPT Police forces in Australia.

Google breached data laws in Britain

BRITISH authorities said Google broke the law by collecting data from personal wireless networks.

The decision reverses preliminary findings that had effectively given the US company a pass.

Google in May disclosed that the camera-equipped cars it uses to take pictures for its Street View mapping service for years inadvertently collected personal data from unsecured wireless networks across the world, setting off a storm of criticism.

Britain's Information Commissioner Christopher Graham said Google's actions constituted a "significant breach" of a data-protection law, adding that his office would ask the company to sign a binding commitment to prevent future breaches and agree to an audit of its data-protection practices in Britain. Mr Graham said his office doesn't plan to impose a fine.

The move came a week after the US Federal Trade Commission said it had ended its investigation into the matter, saying Google had taken sufficient steps to ensure such an incident wouldn't reoccur. France, Germany and other countries continue to investigate Google's data grab, as are a group of US state attorneys general.

Google initially said the data collected was fragmentary -- and therefore not personal or sensitive. But Canadian regulators last month said that their investigation found that Google had captured highly sensitive information, including complete emails, user names, passwords and other sensitive data.

Google confirmed the Canadian regulator's findings, setting off a new round of investigations around the globe. In Britain, the Information Commissioner's Office had essentially exonerated the company in a preliminary investigation in May, concluding that Google hadn't collected meaningful personal data so hadn't broken the law.

Now, the office has done an about-face after meetings in the past two weeks with Canadian authorities and other international regulators, according to a spokesman for the commissioner.

"In the light of the emerging findings from these detailed investigations, the admission by Google that personal data had indeed been collected and the fact that Google used the same technology in the UK, the commissioner has decided that formal action is necessary," the spokesman said.

In his statement on Wednesday, Mr Graham said the ICO is ready to take further regulatory action if Google doesn't comply with the terms of the legally binding commitment, which he has sent to the company. Google has yet to sign off.

The terms of the agreement include demands for Google to enhance its employee-training programs on privacy and security and institute a policy that requires Google engineers to maintain a "privacy design document" on projects. They also include a call for Google to commit to a consensual audit in Britain within nine months and delete the data collected once legally permitted.

Peter Fleischer, Google's global privacy counsel, said in a written statement that Google was sorry for collecting the data and noted that the company had had cooperated with Britain's data regulator since announcing the mistake in May.

"As we have said before, we did not want this data, have never used any of it in our products or services, and have sought to delete it as quickly as possible," Mr Fleischer said. "We are in the process of confirming that there are no outstanding legal obligations upon us to retain the data, and will then ensure that it is quickly and safely deleted."

Some have called Britain's response to the Google incident toothless, particularly when compared with that of other European countries. In a debate in the British parliament last week, Conservative lawmaker Robert Halfon called the regulator's response "lamentable," and cited The Wall Street Journal's ongoing "What They Know" investigation into online privacy as evidence of the need to take a more watchful, and active, approach.

Simon Davies, head of advocacy group Privacy International, said Wednesday that the British regulator simply followed the lead of other international regulators, instead of conducting an aggressive and professional investigation of its own. He called the response by the Information Commissioner's Office a "travesty," and said the regulator failed to "fulfill any level of commitment to finding the truth."

"We don't believe the proposed course of action is in any way meaningful," Mr Davies said. He called the action "too little too late."

France's data-protection authority is weighing whether to punish Google and was expected to announce a verdict at year-end, according to Yann Padova, the organisation's secretary general. Google could face a fine of up to €150,000 ($210,000) in France, and a separate criminal enquiry could be opened depending on the findings. Germany, where the state protects privacy fiercely and continues to investigate, is expected to take a hard line.

It is difficult for governments to deny that the law has been broken.

BUT it is quite clear from the lack of ANY conviction that the governments (unofficially) support the action of google's data collection, as this information will later be available to the governments

Four-year-old girl can be sued: US judge

She might have been too young for grade school, but a judge says a New York City girl was old enough to be sued over a bicycle accident that happened when she was 4.

A Manhattan judge refused earlier this month to toss out negligence claims against Juliet Breitman.

She, her mother and others are being sued by the estate of a woman who said she was severely hurt when hit by bicycles that Juliet and a boy were racing down a footpath in April 2009.

The woman, Claire Menagh, died later that year.

Juliet was three months shy of 5.

The judge says there's no evidence a child of that age couldn't appreciate "the danger of riding a bicycle into an elderly woman".

Celebrant arrested after 'hate' ceremony

Police in the Maldives have arrested a marriage celebrant who abused a foreign couple as "swine" and "infidels" during a luxury ceremony in the holiday paradise, an official said.

Maldivian police spokesman Ahmed Shiyam said the celebrant, who conducted the ceremony in the local language at an upmarket resort fringed by white sand and turquoise water, had been arrested with another hotel employee on Thursday.

A video of the ceremony, during which the hapless couple are taunted and subjected to a series of insulting and religious-tinged abuse, was posted on YouTube and has sparked fears for the country's tourism-dependent economy.

The hotel had initially identified the victims as Swiss, but a highly placed tourism source in the Maldives told AFP said they were in fact French. Police declined to confirm their nationality.

"We started investigations and treat this as a very serious matter," Shiyam told AFP by telephone when contacted in the capital island Male.

He said the two men were taken before a magistrate who ordered them to be detained for five days. "Both are being held at a police station in Male," he added.

The Vilu Reef hotel, where the ceremony took place, said it was "unforgivable" that a staff member had read out the sexual and religious slurs in the Dhivehi language and apologised for his conduct.

"You are swine," the couple were told. "The children that you bear from this marriage will all be bastard swine.

"Your marriage is not a valid one. You are not the kind of people who can have a valid marriage. One of you is an infidel. The other, too, is an infidel and, we have reason to believe, an atheist."

The wife, wearing a white dress and carrying a bouquet, and her husband smile shyly through the ceremony, which was to renew their marriage vows at a cost of $1300.

In front of a table decorated with incense sticks, the English-speaking couple bow their heads in prayer through the torrent of accusations, curses and swearing from the celebrant.

At the end of the 15-minute routine, they exchange rings as the staff clap, before heading onto the beach to plant a coconut tree in the sand.

The Islamic republic of the Maldives, a nation of palm-fringed islands scattered in the Indian Ocean, is one of the world's most exclusive honeymoon destinations and its economy relies heavily on tourism.

Pie and Coke - Real Junk Food

Here is another example in a Food Store that advertises junk food for lunch.

In this example there is the great Aussie (Bogan) Icon:
the meat pie,
together with a 600ml carcinogenic drink of Coca Cola.

600ml of soft drink contains approx 18 teaspoons of sugar.
You deserve to be a diabetic after having this drink in your diet.

Coca Cola is also responsible for your body inhibiting the absorption of calcium, together with it's acidic qualities, responsible for tooth enamel degradation, accelerating tooth decay.

The great Aussie Meat Pie is made from highly processed reject meat, with very little nutritional value.

The food authority is NOT serious about the health of the (peasant) population by the shear fact that these 'food' stuffs are advertised.

This food is realistically targeted at the Canon Fodder of society.

Current reality chef gurus, advertise on Australian TV that you can feed the entire family (Parents with 2 children) for dinner for $10.00

The above illustrated meal at $6.80, is an absolute rip off, taking into consideration that Coca Cola Amatil buys water from the Australian government at $1.40 per 1,000,000 litres.
