Police in the state of Victoria, Australia. A corporation posing as a legitimate branch of the Victorian state government.
Over six months ago this story emerged but despite the whole’ hands up don’t shot’ theme clearly displays here very little in the media frenzy. Police caught out by their own cameras. Its either the police are too stupid to remember this or the footage get ‘lost’ or redacted when its looking too bad for the cops.
Well this footage didn’t get’ lost’, and ultimately exonerated the citizen, police clearly are in deep trouble now. Occasionally in the internal squabbles behind the scenes in the police/courts/lawyer matrix, someone has an axe to grind and they throw one of their own to the dogs.
Special reminder to police: video cameras are commonplace now days (built into most mobile phones) and people have a habit of filming controversial events and then uploading them for all to see. You can’t win the court case if you lost the media war.
Video evidence is almost undeniable in court.
I wonder how long it will be before our local Victoria police are again caught on camera assaulting the public for no good reason.
Justice Flick, one of three appeal judges, said he had reviewed footage of the removal of the tent dress and was shocked by what he saw.
“Those who made the directions for this conduct to be pursued should be shot. It’s grossly offensive,” he said.

Remember a knife was cutting the tent apart just inches from the back of Kerrsions neck during the incident. This knife (called a tool by Victoria Police) was provided to MCC workers by Victoria Police during the incident. One of the council workers refused to take part in the incident and walked away, though the remaining MCC workers and police mindlessly abused the young woman by tearing away her clothes and leaving her in her underwear on the grass.
This incident occurred the day after Victoria police were humiliated by the original tent monster action which saw Kerrison and two other” tent monsters” run around the park and utterly demoralize Victoria police who felt like the fools that they were.
Clearly Victoria police don’t know the meaning of the phrase :”It’s all in good fun”
And in completely unrelated fashion we add the logo and website for a nationwide register for sex offenders.
They said it wasn’t happening here, it didn’t happen here. The truth was it was better covered up here.
And while Victoria Police corporation worked so hard to shut down Occupy Melbourne as a street protest the very reason we were protesting the dirty frauds committed by banks, Victoria Police corporation were investigating this fraud.
The bank heres received secret bail outs, and at least one bank has been involved in propping up a Ponzi scheme and snatching the victims houses.
Worst of all was CBA (Commonwealth bank of Australia’s) response to the scam, get on board and side with the scammer to steal the house.
the story by:
I will attempt to identify all the lies and attempt to correct them, but it is as difficult task as the picture painted is so grossly distorted.
EXCLUSIVE: OCCUPY Melbourne protesters who shut down the city and vandalised buildings have left the public with a million-dollar bill in legal fees and clean-up and other costs.
1 (Vandalized buildings? Where is the evidence of this, chalk does not count.)
Documents obtained by the Herald Sun under Freedom of Information laws reveal the public cost of protesters suing the city council, police and the State Government in legal action that ultimately failed.
2 ( Occupy Melbourne never democratically voted to be represented by Fitzroy Legal Service: Nick Carson ( a Greens Party stooge) simply announced this at a General assembly in the first week of Occupy Melbourne at City Square. Nick Carson should be held financially liable for the bills Fitzroy Legal has given to the taxpayer, he certainly attempted to profit from Occupy Melbourne and accepted no liability for his actions)
Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said he was outraged authorities had won in court, but the public still had to pay.
The City of Melbourne has paid over $554,000 to Hunt & Hunt Lawyers since 2011 after activists Sara Kerrison and James Muldoon sued, claiming the arrest and eviction of Occupy Melbourne protesters had been illegal.
3 (No one forced The City of Melbourne corporation to relentlessly harass Occupy Melbourne, who firmly believed they were acting within the law. It is also not reasonable to destroy other people’s property and then charge them for the clean- up costs. it is also not reasonable for a vexatious litigant to claim their victims are responsible for their extensive legal costs)
Council had to spend an extra $71,000 on emergency barricades and to clean up the area and remove graffiti.
4 (No one forced the illegal imprisonment of protesters or the locking up of City Square for more than a week. Similarly, no-one forced the wanton destruction of property by police)
Victoria Police’s legal bills are understood to be at least double the council’s, raising the prospect that the full bill to the public is well into seven figures.
5 (Victoria Police corporation, while acting illegally, have no right to demand their costs be met by the tax payer, furthermore no right even when acting according to statute, as they are a private corporation , not a legitimate branch of government)
When asked about the costs uncovered by the Herald Sun, Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said: “One, they took us to the Federal Court. Two, they lost.
“Three, costs were awarded against them with very little likelihood that they can pay.
“Four, the bill is $554,000 – that’s legal fees alone to the city. And they are now taking us to appeal.”
6 ( Starting a sentence with ‘And’ is pretty poor form for a professional ‘journalist’ )
The public had also footed the bill for the Occupy protesters’ failed court action.
Fitzroy Legal Service, The Human Rights Law Centre – both partly government-funded – and top barrister Ron Merkel, QC, took on the case.
7 (These parasitic incompetent law services all lined up ready to pilfer the public purse, offered poor advice, collapsed the case and then congratulated themselves on a job well done. Fitzroy Legal Service even received an award from City of Melbourne. Fitzroy Legal also attempted to steal computer equipment from Ocuppy Melboure and actually destroyed some video evidence they were entrusted with. )
Mr Muldoon and Ms Kerrison lost a Federal Court challenge last year after seeking to restrain the City of Melbourne from what they argued was unlawful conduct in regards to compliance notices issued by the council.
8 ( The extremely poor advice caused the loss of the case, the most fundamental constitutional principle, section 109 was not mentioned. Mr Muldoon ( a law student ) who used his limited and self-serving involvement in Occupy Melbourne to then offer university law lectures on the topic, strangely was told he was not a representative of Occupy Melbourne at the last hearing, leaving Ms Kerrison effectively holding the bag. This was despite both litigants seeking and receiving the blessing from a public general assembly at Occupy Melbourne to represent Occupy Melbourne in federal court. In short Muldoon (a law student from a wealthy family) should be just as liable as Kerrison, but as usual the law society looks after its own )
The court backed the police arrests.
Ms Kerrison has now filed an appeal to the Full Federal Court. She faces a potential $1 million plus legal bill from Melbourne City Council, Victoria Police and the state if she loses that.
The Occupy Melbourne group, which was part of the worldwide Occupy movement, was issued with council penalty notices after it erected tents in the City Square and two CBD gardens in November 2011.
Police clashed with demonstrators when they arrested almost 100 people after ordering them to leave.
9 ( The arrests were illegal, as you have a right to protest, and Ms Kerrison is quite within her rights to appeal such a flawed decision)
Following a WikiLeaks protest at the US consulate in October 2012, Ms Kerrison was fined $1000 without conviction on three charges including hindering and resisting police and theft of police handcuffs.
10 (Victoria Police targeted Ms Kerrison for abuse since the initial tent monster incident in december 2011: the very next day she was thrown to the asphalt when there was oncoming traffic. At the WikiLeaks protest she was snatched (from the arms of another protester) and abducted by the police for no reason, and dumped in St Kilda. The handcuffs she was accused of stealing were the handcuffs on her wrists. Police were just too incompetent to realize she slipped them off her wrists and they had gone missing, because dumping abducted activists is a deniable operation and nothing gets written down. Kerrison could easily claim the handcuffs are evidence of a crime and hers to keep until the matter is resolved in court of law)
Melbourne city Councillor Richard Foster, describing the fees as substantial, said: “I would be very guarded on expending ourselves on further proceedings.”
11 (Richard Forster is well-known political opportunist, and former lawyer for a big bank, he campaigned on MCC transparency, and once elected pushed for more secrecy, good example of the people who Occupy are against)
Ratepayers Victoria president Jack Davis said once again the public was left to pay.
12 (Occupy Melbourne, to the best of my knowledge are not demanding public money, greedy incompetent lawyers are demanding money from the public and are using Occupy Melbourne as the scapegoat for their greed. Rate payers are reminded that if they vote for incompetent narcissistic fascists they deserve what they get, a nasty surprise)
Christopher Gillett has grossly misled the public with this heavily biased corporate press release. It’s no surprise the Herald Sun is part of the Rupert Murdoch /Fox News propaganda empire.
Advice for Ms Kerrison:
Keep on appealing but you need to learn the legal principles that are being used against you. Be aware that the legal system is a façade and that the entire process is in commerce and for profit, sometimes simply wearing them down is the best solution. Be aware that the law society is the lawyers, police and judges all working together to fleece the public and the court case is a minor squabble among them to decide which of them (not you) gets paid. These minor squabbles are seldom ever interrupted unless the public get too interested or offended by the blatant injustice. Remember the horribly brutalised protesters at the S11 protest still have received no compensation.
Justice is the last thing the justice system is about, look at the giant metal mural on the country court, a woman blind to reason with the scales of commerce tilted in her favour and propped up by and reliant on force, the sword as a walking cane, this should be a clue as to what occurs in the building.
Get real advice about the law not advice from slimy back stabbing lawyers who just see you as a walking pay check and totally disposable. Just like the way Muldoon sold you out behind your back.
Victorian government votes for anti protest laws.
This is a move to further erode and criminalize dissent and marginalize political thought.
But do you?

their email addresses:
Do not ever vote for these people, they think of you as nothing more that dumb beasts to be used and abused for their pleasure. Your only legal way to get political change is to contact them directly, which we suggest you do each and every day. You’ll soon see they really couldn’t care less about what you want, and any illusion of democracy you have will soon be gone.
Protest is now illegal, if you disagree with government policy you will be punished.
For those of you astute enough to notice, voting changes nothing, a protest, picket, or blockade is more likely to get some positive change from the state.
So what do you know the state wants to effectively remove that mechanism in Victoria. In Victoria plans are afoot to expand police move on powers to include protesters.
The no general move on during a protest, is effectively what allows a protest to occur, even now police will issue a move on knowing protesters have the right to refuse to move on and every right to protest.
Police will even assault and drag away protesters despite protesters having the right to stand their ground.
For any protest this is GAME OVER.
Your last remaining political voice is almost gone and likely with a hefty fine attached to it.
Case dismissed seems to be the summary of all of this. I’d like to hear a more skilled opinion on this voluminous document.
Lets go over a few of the relevant basics:
1) No one ever democratically voted for Fitzroy legal service to represent Occupy Melbourne.
It was something Nick Carson announced at a GA, no discussion.
2) In speaking to one of the Fitzroy legal lawyers, I asked about Blacks law dictionary, her reply was “what’s that?”
It would be like a chef saying “what is a pot?”.
3) Similar cases in Australia recently, Corneloup and Occupy Sydney resulted in the removal of the protection of political liberty as per Crimes Act 1914 § 28 as a defense for your protest actions.
4) The same old people who pronounced Occupy Melbourne dead are still grandstanding on its corpse crying martyr and really don’t want to accept it’s still alive, but in a different form.
