Brown’s Autopsy Report Was Taken Out Of Context, Says Forensics Expert

"Judy Melinek, one of the forensic experts who was quoted by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Tuesday about the Michael Brown autopsy report, is taking issue with how the newspaper portrayed her comments.

The key piece of Melinek's analysis, according to the Post-Dispatch's original report, was that the report of Brown's autopsy 'supports the fact that this guy is reaching for the gun, if he has gunpowder particulate material in the wound. If he has his hand near the gun when it goes off, he’s going for the officer’s gun.'” *

Dear Mr Cameron,

This past few days have been astonishing, so astonishing that I confess I have never seen anything like it before. The overwhelming Police force sent to quell democracy in Parliament Square should bring a shudder and cry of horror to the entire nation. The intimidation and brutality of the Police inflicted on such a precious few people is a sight that should never, ever, have been seen in this green and sceptred (now septic) land.

Who could have guessed the absolute level of threat democracy presents to your government and corporate interests?

Last night the few put out a cry for support as the Police attacked them, hurting two personal friends, standing over them in case they nodded off from exhaustion, and shouting them awake saying that falling asleep was illegal in Parliament Square. I told both friends to make sure they photographed their injuries. They told me they would but couldn't share any pictures as they didn't want to display their breasts in public. Think about that, Mr Cameron, think very, very hard about what that means! Injuries sustained from your thugs!

The Battle of the Tarpaulin will go down in British history as the battle for democracy and a dry arse against overwhelming and brutal force.

Printed material has been banned and destroyed and, as I wrote yesterday, a man was detained and told by the Police, "You are not allowed to display written material in this place".

Really, Mr Cameron, this is a level of cowardice never seen before in this place. This is as craven as it is vicious. This is Britain today, right now. This is the brutal regime you are the parliamentary head of, this is your call and it is a call found wanting in every democratic, humane and humanitarian way.

Those thugs are your thugs sent to crush the voices of the people in the heartland of the nations parliament. Small wonder you want to trash our human rights when even 50 people meeting peacefully to talk about democracy are mercilessly attacked.

Shame on the Police, shame on you and shame on the corporatocracy that has stolen power and parliament from the people and dominates this nation today. If you have even one ounce of decency left in you, call your bloody dogs off Mr Cameron!

When members of the public approach politicians about the Schapelle Corby case, People For Schapelle Corby

People For Schapelle Corby
When members of the public approach politicians about the Schapelle Corby case, specifically, with the direct primary evidence that proves she is innocent, almost invariably, they run and hide. They don't even reply.

Noting that this is the same evidence which proves corrupt acts by ministers and the AFP, they go to extreme lengths to avoid direct dialogue on the material itself. They pretend it doesn't exist. They blank those they are elected to serve.

In 2012, an exercise was conducted to demonstrate the lengths to which they were prepared to go, to dodge the bullet, and to close ranks around their colleagues.

A formal crime report was produced by an independent legal team. This was submitted to various parties, including the AFP and the Attorney-General. It was followed up repeatedly, as all recipients rapidly shoved it under the carpet and hid. FOI requests were subsequently submitted to shed light upon this unsightly panic.

Let's take the Attorney-General of the time, Nicola Roxon. Roxon was well aware of the Crime Report, because, apparently unknown to her, electronic submissions were set to create digital read-receipts when she opened them. She was caught red handed, metaphorically twitching her curtains whilst her front door was slammed.

Her sidekick, Jason Clare, used a different technique. He responded with a bizarre politico-speak letter which bore no relation whatsoever to the subject matter of the report:

When this was pointed out to him, he joined Roxon, in hiding.

The FOI data from the Australian Crime Commission yielded information of an even more sinister nature. It appeared that the ACC itself had been subjected to external pressure. Its own correspondence suggested that sanctions may be imposed upon it by other parties, in terms of restricting the future flow of information:

The AFP simply acknowledged receipt, and refused to respond thereafter:

Full details of the entire exercise are documented from the following web page:

The pattern is absolutely clear. Here was a formal Crime Report, inclusive of primary evidence and official ministerial documentation, yet every route was blocked. Everyone approached jumped for cover.

It was a hot potato no-one would handle.

Australia is closed for justice. However incontrovertible the evidence is, however conclusive the proof, the privileged and the powerful are above the law.

The establishment protects it own, at the expense of Schapelle Corby and the rest of us. They look after each other, come what may.

Australia's dirty little secret remains hidden to this day: the guilty remain protected, and the victim continues to be vilified.

19-year-old sentenced to death

Austin Myers shows no emotion at judge's ruling

The Attorney General's Weekly Video Message: Sentencing Reform

Attorney General Holder today called on Congress to pass common-sense reforms like the bipartisan Smarter Sentencing Act, which would give judges more discretion in determining appropriate sentences for people convicted of certain federal drug crimes. These reforms would advance the goals of the Smart on Crime initiative - and other efforts that are currently underway - by fundamentally improving policies that exacerbate, rather than alleviate, key criminal justice challenges.
