On 21 DEC 2015 (copy below) and 22 NOV 2015 (available to all readers on request), emails were sent to you and your barristerial colleagues in Tasmania.
I have been asked why you were a focus in that 21 DEC 2015 email. Perhaps you have wondered, or perhaps you don’t care. You had my contact details, you could have asked me – if you wanted to know. But you never did. Regardless, I will now write a postscript here on why you are a focus in that email.
You are the only one whose listing on the Tasmanian Bar website (http://www.tasmanianbar.com.au/) is accompanied by a formal image – that is, an image of the listee wearing formal court dress of gown, jabot, and wig (see image below). This is the professional image you and your fellow barristers like to promote. Barristers – Officers of the Court – professional-looking, there in the courts ethically defending your clients. But really Cameron, can you tell me which barrister in Tasmania fought for Martin Bryant?
Aaaaah, you might say. He pleaded guilty so there was NO TRIAL. But your colleague John Avery rammed his guilty plea down poor Martin’s throat – after Martin had been kept in isolation for over six months during which he was tormented until he was broken. Martin always said he was NOT GUILTY, until they broke him. Now Cameron, do you really think a mentally incompetent boy-man with an IQ of 66 knew what was really going on, and what all the legal implications were for him? Do you believe that the criminal of a lawyer John Avery did the right thing for his client? Is what Avery did to Martin Bryant what you would have done? Avery said he had nothing to work with – he had no exculpatory evidence he said. This is pure bullshit. Have you ever studied all the witness statements? Exculpatory evidence screams out. Go and read LEAKED DOCUMENTS, which is an exposé of the statements which witnesses of the Port Arthur massacre thought would be used in a trial, but which were ignored by your Jewish legal colleague Damien Bugg the prosecutor. To hell with Gordon Hewart. Justice was seen not to be done.
And please don’t tell me your barristerial colleagues in Tasmania had no reservations about the unsavoury John Avery. This is what your mate Michael O’Farrell emailed me on 25 JAN 2013 about this criminal Avery: “The Tasmanian Bar is an independent referral bar, made up of practitioners who are entitled and have elected to practice solely as barristers. Mr Avery was never a person who made that election and thankfully was not a member of the Tasmanian Bar.” And I do believe Mr. O’Farrell, then president of the Tasmanian Bar, placed emphasis on the word thankfully”.
So back in 1996, the legal system had Martin Bryant strapped down painfully on his 3rd-degree burns (Ray Groom was pleased with this appalling cruelty; see MASS MURDER: p. 8), and the total sham of a legal process (it sure was NOT justice) was beginning to unfold. But Cameron, no barrister ever fought for Martin Bryant. NOT ONE. He was abandoned: first to Debra Rigby; then to David (psychopath?) Gunson; then to John Avery. All the barristers in Tasmania let the buggerizing go on. Then they let that anal orifice William Cox (another barrister) sentence innocent Martin to a protracted death by torture.
Again Cameron, not one barrister spoke up for the truth, for a trial, for a mentally-handicapped person. NOT ONE. In her excellent paper Defending the Unpopular Down-Under (30 Melb. U.L. Rev. 495-553; 2006), Abbe Smith, who studied criminal defence lawyers in Australia, quotes these words from a NSW barrister (Phillip Boulten) on p. 503: “There is a growing recognition that judges and lawyers are the last bastion…against those who would take away peoples’ rights and liberties.” But we cannot say judges and lawyers defended innocent Martin Bryant. No judge or lawyer in Tasmania ever spoke up for Martin. All the mongrel barristers in Tasmania looked away and remained silent as this boy-man was wrongly set up, convicted, then incarcerated. There was no bastion, just demonization which continues to this day.
You in your gown, and jabot, and wig Cameron, are symbolic of some of the worst of your profession. No doubt you are an intelligent human being. But your formal image reminds people of the despicable behaviour of barristers in Tasmania when it comes to the charging, convicting, and incarcerating of innocent Martin Bryant. Not one of your mates spoke up Cameron. They let a boy-man down in 1996, and to this day all of you are letting him down and letting his family SUFFER IN HELL. And added to this of course, none of the families, relatives, and friends of all the Port Arthur victims have ever been told the whole truth and served justice. No barrister in Tasmania has ever spoken up for them either.
And if you don’t like what I have just stated Cameron, then I’ll tell you that I don’t like the fact one bit that News Corp Australia has published despicable images of innocent Martin Bryant under the heading:
THE SECRET LIFE OF AUSTRALIA’S WORST MURDERER
LONELY, PATHETIC, BALDING, OBESE…AND PURE EVIL (sic)
And this heading and all the associated News Corp Australia articles that incite hatred and killing have been accepted by the barristers in Tasmania. And all of you know that the photographer Gary Ramage is selling those despicable images on the Internet (newspix.com.au). Isn’t inciting hatred and killing a crime in Tasmania? Even though you and all your barristerial colleagues are Officers of the Court, not one of you has said a censuring word about News Corp Australia publicly inciting hatred and the killing – “burn him alive,” “injection soon,” “kill him” – of Martin Bryant. You are all mongrels, just like Avery, Bugg, and Cox. Your callous and criminal silence supports News Corp Australia – it aids and abets HATREDand KILLING. On the Tasmanian Bar website, your primary area of professional interest/practice is listed as Criminal Law. So Cameron, do you not see a crime right there in front of you? Right in front of your own eyes? Of course you do. Why have you not spoken out about it?
Since my email of 21 DEC 2015, many people have contacted me. Will leave you with some of their comments to reflect on over the New Year weekend:
“I spent considerable time with some big players in jail and what they told me made me cringe. From top to bottom – coppers, judges, lawyers, bankers – all in it together.”
“Our whole Australian legal and political system is a corrupt monster that has sold its soul to the New World Order. Lawyers, judges and magistrates wonder why the people have lost all respect and trust in them.”
“Well Keith, that’s calling them out! LOL. I wonder what they are saying when they discuss your message and the information. I’m sure there will be a few that would be on side, but they are probably ‘gutless’ as you say and simply choose to ignore the reality. Pathetic, just pathetic.” (barrister)
“…there are lots out there who know that the official spin isn’t the correct one…there are a lot of big heads that would roll if the truth were to be proclaimed from the hill tops or if an enquiry could be held which revealed all the nasty secrets that have been hidden for near on 20 years…. Oz is fast becoming a totalitarian state.”
“To add a little, JOHN WINSTON HOWARD, RAY GROOM and TONY RUNDLE all know who did it, and how the massacre at Port Arthur was perpetrated, and they should stand trial along with all the others who were involved, including the shooters they hired…justice denied anywhere is justice denied everywhere. The truth will always out.” (original capitals; original italics)
Of course, it is never too late for you Cameron, and your barristerial colleagues in Tasmania, to make a public statement about Martin Bryant being denied his rights way back in 1996 – and every year since. And if you don’t, and when they kill him inside Risdon Prison as they surely will, all your names shall be listed on innocent Martin’s INTERNATIONAL OBITUARY and on other communications. (Barristers in Tasmania should let me know if they do not want their names listed – please tell me why, and note that all threats will be ignored.) And it will all go on from there. Go on until the whole truth about the official killing at Port Arthur is revealed to the Australian public. None of you will be released when innocent Martin Bryant is put down like a dog. None of you will be absolved of your guilt.
At this time of year, the usual way of ending correspondence is to wish the recipient a good and prosperous new year. But really Cameron…. I wish you no harm, but I cannot bring myself to ignore your nonfeasance and that of all your barristerial colleagues in Tasmania. Are you laughing Cameron? Laughing with side-splitting glee. You’ve got that “caged circus animal” and you don’t want him free.
Release him on humane grounds. No way. Not after 20 years of torture? No! Give him more.But he’s mentally incompetent, has been since birth. Just give it to the bastard. HATE HIM! KILL HIM! KILL HIM!
Still laughing Cameron? Well then, how about this from Jacinta Ross whose murderous words were incited by those despicable images and articles about Martin Bryant published by News Corp Australia. (see SUBMISSION DOCUMENT TO AUSTRALIAN PRESS COUNCIL: News Corp Australia Articles Inciting Hatred & Killing):
“That mongrel should have been put to death, and fancy putting out to that grub for a chocolate bar, one of these inmates should knock him.”
You and your wig-wearing mates in Tasmania never said a word about this. Didn’t know about it, you might say. Well you do now. All of you know that innocent Martin Bryant is going to die a horrible death in Risdon Prison. And all you Tasmanian barristers – Officers of the Court – are letting it happen.
