Seriously West Aussies, would you want these guys investigating the most serious crimes against the community? Treason, murder, rape, fraud, corruption and grand theft ..., like of the WHOLE COUNTRY? treasonexposed.org elijahschallenge.net Separation of powers? Without fear or favour? Constitutional and property rights? Sure they know about these fundamental rights, but are they keeping secret rites we should know about?

Shameful, revenue-raising behaviour of South Australia Police (SAPOL)


Speed Cameras are a Scam

Published on Dec 10, 2016

Today Tonight exposes the shameful, revenue-raising behaviour of South Australia Police (SAPOL). Deliberately starting confrontations, illegal searches, fining motorists for the most inane 'offenses' ... all in the name of meeting revenue 'benchmarks' (a.k.a quotas).

Veteran Aussie cop teaching how to make as much revenue as possible. Note how different readings from BOTH guns on the SAME CAR are possible.
Also note how cars doing the same speed as the Porche are let off, but not the Porche, for obvious reasons. Follow the money.

Why Are Countries So Terrified Of Israel?

February 21, 2014

https://isolatebutpreserve.blogspot.ie/2014/02/why-are-countries-so-terrified-of-israel.html


http://www.truthnews.com.au/web/radio/story/brendon_oconnell_on_iran_israel_and_freedom_of_speech_in_australia

There are a few reasons.
Below is a picture of the Perth District Court - where I was tried. I had a hearing on January 11th 2011 requesting another venue as it was improper to be tried in a "Jewish Temple". I guess you find that notion pretty silly eh? Well, just check out the front of the court. Whats that "pyramid" emblem mean?


It should be either the state coat of arms or more properly, the "Royal Seal" -



But instead, we have a "pyramid" emblem. This is very important because it shows from where the "lawful authority" is flowing and according to that emblem on the front of the Perth District Court it isn't the Australian Commonwealth Constitution and the Monarch. It's something else. What is it?

Here is another pyramid on another court building -


The above is the Israeli Supreme Court building in Jerusalem. Shit gets deeper. Do you like the "all seeing eye" on the top of the pyramid? Looks a bit like this one -


Thats the U.S one dollar bill. Hmmmm. You getting it yet?


Just 200 meters from the Perth District Court building is the Perth Grand Lodge -


You see above the same signs and symbols in Israel.

The Grand Master Mason of Perth is Inspector Steve Jancec of the Western Australian police service. Shit gets deeper.


The above news article came to me in a very special way. While at Albany Regional Prison this article was placed on my pillow in an envelope while I was at Education preparing a submission for the High Court. Now who could have put that there? You'll note that Inspector Jancec is looking for new recruits. In fact he states that some people may not be aware that their father was a Freemason. I note that my father was tapped for internal affairs when he was a copper in the mid 70's. He got out because it was so corrupt. He was asked by Bruce Dalton to join. Dalton (now retired) was known as "the last of the honest coppers".

The local Freemason magazine and Jewish "Maccabean" newspaper are mailed out at the same mass mail out company - "Lasermail" in East Perth.




I got the job there in March 2010 at noon, on a Wednesday. I came to work Thursday morning and the place was abuzz with the news tat the owner of the business was knocked from his bicycle and nearly killed Wednesday afternoon - 5 hours after I go the job :-) I'm sure it was just a co-incidence. I took 5 copies of the Jewish Maccabean newspaper and was sacked for it - I asked permission and took them from a bin. I also got one copy of the "Freemason" magazine - that disappeared from the house. So ----- what are the chances? Now you see why Freemasonry is known as "Judaism for Gentiles". Now you understand the CLOSE TIES between the Masonic controlled courts and Zionists :-) Western Australia is an owned and operated entity of International Zionism and a well connected member of the Perth Jewish community told me that they are calling W.A - "NEW ZION".



Here are some more signs and symbols from Masonic Temples. Lots of Stars of David, Arks of the Covenant and "pyramids" -

Mossad logo - "Wage War By Deception"

When I presented this to the court, the senior prosecutor Justin Whalley told the judge I needed a "mental health" assessment. I retorted to Whalley that he was a well known pedophile and if he wanted to sling mud then bring it on. The Chief Judge - Mr Peter Martino - told me to sit down and be quiet.I said, "Your Honor, you haven't even read it". He replied, "No! I have! Every word!"He was an excellent judge. As was Justice Mazza in the Supreme Court.

Freemasonry is incompatible with the Catholic faith. Freemasonry teaches a naturalistic religion that espouses indifferentism, the position that a person can be equally pleasing to God while remaining in any religion.

Masonry is a parallel religion to Christianity. The <New Catholic Encyclopedia> states, "Freemasonry displays all the elements of religion, and as such it becomes a rival to the religion of the Gospel. It includes temples and altars, prayers, a moral code, worship, vestments, feast days, the promise of reward and punishment in the afterlife, a hierarchy, and initiative and burial rites" (vol. 6, p. 137).

Masonry is also a secret society. Its initiates subscribe to secret blood oaths that are contrary to Christian morals. The prospective Mason swears that if he ever reveals the secrets of Masonry—secrets which are trivial and already well-known—he wills to be subject to self-mutilation or to gruesome execution. (Most Masons, admittedly, never would dream of carrying out these punishments on themselves or on an errant member).

Historically, one of Masonry's primary objectives has been the destruction of the Catholic Church; this is especially true of Freemasonry as it has existed in certain European countries. In the United States, Freemasonry is often little more than a social club, but it still espouses a naturalistic religion that contradicts orthodox Christianity. (Those interested in joining a men's club should consider the Knights of Columbus instead.)

The Church has imposed the penalty of excommunication on Catholics who become Freemasons. The penalty of excommunication for joining the Masonic Lodge was explicit in the 1917 code of canon law (canon 2335), and it is implicit in the 1983 code (canon 1374).

Because the revised code of canon law is not explicit on this point, some drew the mistaken conclusion that the Church's prohibition of Freemasonry had been dropped. As a result of this confusion, shortly before the 1983 code was promulgated, the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith issued a statement indicating that the penalty was still in force. This statement was dated November 26, 1983 and may be found in <Origins> 13/27 (Nov. 15, 1983), 450.

Brendon O'Connell Interviewed by Max Igan.

 A meeting of two great minds devoted to exposing ZIONIST infiltration in Australia

Two good friends of mine that spell out the absolute corruption of West Australian Government. Infested with criminals throughoutthe entire justice system is a bad joke while the W.A. Police themselves are full of petty criminals thieves, liars and thugs. Wake up Australia...

If this goes on they will eventually incarcerate every poor person to make a Prison system that would make Hitler proud. Invaded by criminal elements and run by the worst of the worst, Western Australian criminal justice system is by far the laughing stock of the Westminster system.

The infiltration of zionist agents into Western Australia will soon make W.A. a truly awful place to live, more than it already is.

The police even bashed  a university law professor Robert Cunningham and his wife and went to their home and stole their hard drive of police video footage...
Most of the organised criminals and Bikie gangs work for the police .. when you see Bikie or other people  being beaten up by police it means that these people do not work for the police ...there are a lot of South African intelligence that got out of South Africa.. the motto is do what ever you want just don't get caught .. and even when they are caught noting really changes and noting much happens to them ...  half the businesses in Perth and Western Australia are built up with drug money and when the businesses get big enough then they become legitimate and are too big to attack and bring down ... Perth is a hideaway for many people that need to hide as protected witnesses ...and if they do not say what the powerful people want them to say they get up on false charges ..."

Dr. Karl Joseph O'Callaghan (born 1956 in England) is an Australian police officer serving since 2004 as the Commissioner of the Western Australia Police.

O'Callaghan was born in 1956 in England.

In January 1976 he graduated as Dux of his Academy class. O’Callaghan’s policing career has encompassed Police Communications, Port Hedland Police Station, Accident Inquiry Section, Perth Traffic Branch, Manjimup Traffic and General Duties, Community Education, and the Police Academy.

He was promoted from Senior Sergeant to Superintendent in 1996 and was transferred to the Internal Investigations Unit and later ran both the Wheatbelt (formerly Northam) and South East Metropolitan (formerly Cannington) policing districts.

O'Callaghan later attended Curtin University of Technology in Western Australia and completed a Bachelor of Education with 1st Class Honours and in 1998 he became the first police officer in the history of the Western Australia Police to complete a PhD.

In 2001 he was promoted to Assistant Commissioner, Strategic and Corporate Development (formerly Policy, Planning & Evaluation) assuming responsibility for major change, reform and information technology projects in the Western Australia Police. He later relieved in the positions of Executive Director (Corporate Services) and Deputy Commissioner (Reform).

In 2006 he was made a Rotary International Paul Harris fellow for his work with communities in Western Australia. In 2011 he established Bright Blue (The Commissioner's Charity for Sick Kids) and became the inaugural chair.

Policing Career

In 1973, after finishing year 12, he joined the Western Australia Police as a cadet. A year later he joined the WA Police Academy where he graduated as dux of his class in 1976.

O'Callaghan was promoted to Commissioner in 2004.

Western Australian Police Commissioners 1867-1958

WA Police Commissioners 1867-1958

1853-1867 | 1958-present

Gustavus Edward Cockburn Hare (1811-1881)
Superintendent: June 18, 1867 to April 24, 1871


 It is believed that Gustavus Edward Cockburn Hare was a well respected Freemason

Hare was a member of yet another well-known family of British gentry, in this case one based in County Sussex. He was educated in Germany and graduated from the Bonn University. He is believed to have served as a captain in the Prussian Army. Later he retired to an estate in Ireland before accepting the position of Superintendent of Police in WA. Hare was a good administrator while serving as Superintendent and had the common sense to draw on the experience and knowledge of long-serving officers.

However, he seems to have been forever hunting for better paid public positions. It became evident he had his eye on Cockburn-Campbell's position. Gustavus Hare resigned as soon as the latter had died and went south to live out his remaining years as Resident Magistrate at Albany.#

Gustavus Edward Cockburn HARE [3561]

  • Born: 15 Sep 1811
  • Baptised: 25 May 1812, St Marylebone MDX
  • Marriage: Sarah Anne WRIGHT [3589] on 25 Jul 1840 in Herstmonceux SSX
  • Died: 2 Apr 1881, Albany Western Australia at age 69
  • Buried: Old Albany Cemetery WA
  • Gustavus Edward Cockburn Hare
  • Born 15 Sept 11
  • Baptism Date: 25 May 1812
  • Parish: St Marylebone Middlesex
  • Borough: Westminster
  • Parent(s): Francis Hare Naylor Esq,
  • Anna Maria his wife
  • Record Type: Baptism
  • Register Type: Parish Register.

Ancestry

Steven Dolan writes 2013.
Gustavus was an accomplished cricketer in his youth he played for Winchester College but after he moved to Ireland he did much to promote the game in the west. The Co Galway Cricket Club was actually based at his house in Moycullen (Kircullen) from the 1850's. When Gustavus moved to Australia in 1867, the county side moved eastwards in search of a new home, initially to Coolarne House, outside Athenry.
In one big match in July 1858, in a victory against the Athlone Garrison, it was clear that Hare might have lost his speed given he was now 46, scoring only 8 in his first innings, however he had lost none of his skill. He bowled out five men in the first innings and in the second his brother Captain Hare (I presume this is Reginald) bowled out four Athlone players with Gustavus himself bowling out a further two.
 
Hare an interesting character, also held an estate in Lackalea in Kilconickny outside Loughrea where he had planned to build another estate house, he did start to improve the lands. However the estate came before the landed estates court in May 1867 after he ran out of cash. He certainly wasn't the first estate to get into trouble, as countless estates were in major trouble.
 

Gustavus of Kircullen House co Galway was for some time in the Prussian Army.

Superintendant Gustavus Edward Cockburn Hare:
Gustavus Hare was educated at Winchester College and at the University of Bonn in Germany. It is believed he served as an officer in the Prussian army after graduation and reached the rank of Captain. Later he became a landed gentleman of Kircullen House in County Galway, but eventually found it necessary to seek a salaried government post. He arrived in WA in 1867 and his position as Superintendent and chief of police was gazetted on 18 June of that year. He held the post for nearly 4 years, during which he acted in another couple of public positions and left Major R.H.Crampton to look after the Police Force in his absence. He seems to have been given the permanent position of Resident Magistrate at Albany on 24 April 1871. He died at Albany on 21 April 1881. At seems at least two close Hare relatives were commissioned police officers in other Australian colonies. Two of G.E.C.Hare's sons were commissioned officers in the WA Police Force.

This officer was a member of the Timperley family of Manchester, who in turn were descended from a prominent family of medieval English gentry. William was the son of a 'failed' settler who remained in WA to make his own way after the family returned to England. He eventually became a career police officer who commanded several important police districts and was for many years the second most senior officer in the Colony. Timperley left the Police Force in 1885 to become Superintendent of Rottnest Island.

He was the Resident Magistrate at Bunbury in later life and a notable figure in the cultural life of Late Colonial and Early Federation WA. Being a keen amateur anthropologist and scholar of the humanities, he was much in demand as a public lecturer. In addition, Timperley helped found an orchestral society and was the author of two novels. He received the Imperial Service Order for his contributions to the community.

William Henry Timperley (1833-1909), policeman and civil servant, was born on 22 May 1833 at Solihull, Warwickshire, England, son of William Thomas Timperley, who was ordained in the Church of England about 1842, and his wife Elizabeth, née Bradney. William was educated at Shrewsbury School, and when his father became British chaplain at Berne, Switzerland, he enrolled in the philosophical faculty of the Berner Hochschule in 1850.

Next year Timperley arrived in Western Australia with his brother, father and a Mrs Pennefather, whose presence caused scandal. In the 1850s he joined the police force, and on 2 November 1858 when sergeant at Bunbury he married Rebecca, daughter of Charles Properjohn, a butcher. He was promoted to sub-inspector in 1860 and inspector in 1870. During a tour of duty at Champion Bay in 1877 he became foundation master of the Geraldton Masonic Lodge (in 1903 he was a past senior grand warden of the Grand Lodge of Western Australia). After lengthy leave in England he returned to Western Australia in the Glengoil on 11 October 1884.

In August next year Timperley was appointed superintendent of the native prison on Rottnest Island and took up duty in July 1886. Life on the island was busy but isolated; visitors needed a pass. The only communication was a daily heliograph message and a weekly boat bringing mail, stores and passengers. The governor took his holidays on the island and Timperley supervised arrangements for viceregal shooting parties. Improving conditions for prisoners, who supported themselves by a farm, he planted an experimental grove of pines and directed construction of subterranean tanks to augment inadequate rain-water. In 1890-1905 he was resident magistrate and electoral registrar for the Wellington, Blackwood and Sussex districts. Until 1901 he was also sub-collector for customs and revenue at Bunbury. On retirement to South Perth in June 1905 he was awarded the Imperial Service Order.

Timperley was described by Lady Broome as a genial man of imposing appearance 'six feet (183 cm) high, broad-shouldered and straight as a life guardsman, blue-eyed … with white hair and a beard which looked almost ridiculous on such a young fresh merry face'. Fascinated by his stories, she persuaded him to write Harry Treverton …, virtually an autobiography which she edited. He enjoyed his prestige as an author and subsequently wrote Bush Luck. Both were serialized in the Boys' Own Paper from 1887 to 1890 and later were published in London (1889 and 1892) in book form. An accomplished violinist and singer, he often performed publicly; he was a prominent lay reader in the Church of England. He died of a stroke at South Perth on 11 August 1909 and was buried in Karrakatta cemetery, survived by his wife and seven of their ten children. His estate was sworn for probate at £6763.

Matthew Skinner Smith (1836-1887)
Superintendent: May 9 1871
Commissioner: January 13 to April 18 1887
It is believed that Matthew Skinner Smith  was a well respected Freemason

Smith was a former captain in the British Army with a distinguished record in the Crimean War of 1854-1856 and the China Expedition of 1860. He was a member of an English landed gentry family with a strong tradition of military service – his father Matthew Smith reached the rank of lieutenant general. Smith arrived in WA with expectation of becoming secretary to the Governor, but the position fell through and he became a bank clerk until being handpicked to lead the Police Force.

Smith had gained much administrative experience in the army and he used this to good effect in the Police Force. In the face of press hostility and acute financial restrictions in the 1870s, he pushed through a number of reforms in a methodical and intelligent way. Amongst other things, a Detective Branch was established, the Imperial Water Police became part of a united Police Force and problems over uniforms and the rank structure were resolved. He also took measures to assert the independence of his office and strove to improve the lot of his subordinates. The Fenian episode of 1876 did not harm Smith's reputation. The Police Force was in relatively good shape by the mid-1880s, a situation marked by improved morale and public praise for the Commissioner's work.

In 1880 Smith was given the additional position of Commandant of the Enrolled Guard, consisting of former soldiers who protected Government House and other key sites and installations. From late 1885 to early 1887 he was Acting Colonial Secretary and an appointed member of the colonial Legislative Council. Commissioner Smith died in office and is buried at Albany.

Smith, Matthew Skinner (1836–1887)

by Peter Conole

http://adb.anu.edu.au/biography/smith-matthew-skinner-13200

Matthew Skinner Smith (1836-1887), commissioner of police, was born on 30 August 1836 in England, one of at least two sons of Matthew Smith, an army officer who eventually rose to the rank of lieutenant general. Young Matthew was commissioned as an ensign in the 44th Regiment of Foot on 7 June 1854. After serving with distinction in the Crimean War (1854-56) and the China expedition of 1860, he was promoted lieutenant and captain by merit, rather than by purchase, and held two responsible administrative positions during the 1860s. In 1867 he left the army and married Elizabeth Nolan on 4 July in the parish church, River, Kent. Next year he moved to Western Australia in the expectation of becoming private secretary to Colonel John Bruce, who hoped to be appointed governor. Bruce was not selected, however, and Smith was employed as a bank clerk.

On the retirement of Gustavus Hare, Smith (recommended by Bruce) was appointed chief of police with the rank of superintendent on 9 May 1871. Finding the police force disorganized and held in low regard, Smith coped with public criticism and financial cuts, and fended off attempts to exert greater political control. A methodical and hard-working administrator with a reserved manner, he treated its members with tact and consideration and reformed the force from the ground up.

Smith's major achievements included founding the criminal investigation (1873) and mounted (1875) sections, reorganizing police districts, introducing probationary constables and 'favourable record' systems, and amalgamating the Imperial Water Police into the force. In 1876 he approved the publication of the first Police Gazette, which was to become one of the oldest continuing official publications in Western Australia. The escape from Fremantle of six Fenian convicts in April that year in the American whaler Catalpa did not reflect on his efficiency; Governor (Sir) William Robinson commended his 'energy and discretion' in the matter.

Beginning a tradition of using the police annual reports to comment on social and judicial issues of the day, Smith analysed alcohol abuse, which he identified as a health—rather than a law enforcement—problem and recommended the founding of an 'inebriates asylum'. He discounted capital punishment as a fair method of dealing with tribal killings and took steps to prevent the exploitation of Aborigines in the pearling industry. As well, he warned the government of the likely impact of mineral discoveries and of a consequent need to establish a police presence in mining centres. By the early 1880s the public image of the police force had improved dramatically and Smith was one of the most respected public officials in the colony. He had connexions with the colonial elite and was a founder and vice-president of the Weld Club. In 1880 he obtained the additional post of commandant of the enrolled pensioner guard.

Smith took leave of absence to become acting colonial secretary in 1885 and was appointed to the Legislative Council next year. The office of commissioner of police was re-established for his benefit and he returned to duty in the police force on 13 January 1887. Smith died of gastric bleeding on 18 April that year, while visiting Albany, where he was buried. His wife survived him; the marriage was childless.

George Braithwaite Phillips (1836-1900)
Acting Superintendent: December 9, 1885 to January 13 1887
Commissioner: April 1887 to March 26, 1900

 It is believed that George Braithwaite Phillips was a well respected Freemason



As was inevitable, another Commissioner who was of gentry origins - in his case 'plantation aristocracy' from Barbados in the West Indies. Phillips was the son of J.R. Phillips, Resident Magistrate at Albany in the 1840s. George Phillips joined the public service in 1852 and rose to become Assistant Colonial Secretary. He took time out to take part in Robert Austin's exploration expedition to Shark Bay in 1854. Phillips had reserves of both moral and physical courage and was active in the Colonial Defence Force - he was Commandant on two occasions and reached the rank of lieutenant colonel.

He was related by marriage to other families of the colonial elite, such as the Burts and Hares and, like Smith and his successor Frederick Hare, a member of the influential Weld Club. The Police Act of 1892 was brought into effect in his time - it is still the governing legislation of the Western Australia Police.

The Phillips years were difficult ones for the police of the day, due to the impact of problems relating to the Gold Rush, labour disputes and the pastoral frontier. George Phillips also died in office.

William Chipper Lawrence (1848-1923)
Acting Commissioner: March 26 to April 18, 1900 and February 22 to 28, 1905
 It is believed that William Chipper Lawrence was a well respected Freemason


Lawrence, born in Bunbury, was the son of early settlers James Lawrence and Harriet Moore. He was a career police officer who joined in 1871 and rose through the ranks to be commissioned as a Sub-Inspector in 1885, after which he served as head of the Detective Branch and Officer in Charge of the Northwest in turn. In the mid-1890s he coordinated operations against the outlaw Pigeon and his followers. He was promoted to Inspector (1893), Chief Inspector (1899) and Superintendent (1900). Lawrence was second in command of the Police force for many years and senior officer in the Metropolitan area. During two brief periods when the office was completely vacant.

Lawrence was Acting Commissioner, to be replaced by the new appointee in 1900 and the substantive holder of the post in 1905. He was compelled to retire in 1912 at the same time as Commissioner Hare.

Frederick Arthur Hare (1852-1932)
Commissioner: April 18, 1900 to March 31, 1912

  It is believed that Frederick Arthur Hare was a well respected Freemason

Frederick Arthur HARE [3593]

  • Born: 20 Jan 1852

Frederick Arthur HARE [3593] 
(1852-1932)


The son of Chief of Police Gustavus Hare and related by marriage to Commissioner Philips, he entered the civil service in 1871 and held several administrative and judicial posts. He was an Inspector in the Police Force during the 1880s before taking up successive positions as a Resident Magistrate, ending with a controversial term on the Goldfields. As was customary with many leading families of the colonial gentry, Hare sought and obtained a commission (as a captain in a Rifle Company) in the militia. Hare was a colourful and outspoken Commissioner of Police and a capable administrator.

However, Hare's time in office was a torrid one. Constant bickering with politicians and some subordinates attracted press criticism and comment, while he was slightly wounded in a failed murder attempt in 1907. Despite receiving one of the earliest King's Police Medals awarded in Australia, Hare's career ended in forced retirement arranged by political enemies of the day.

Robert Connell (1867-1956)
Acting Commissioner: April 1, 1912 to January 17, 1913
Commissioner: January 17, 1913 to January 31, 1933
 It is believed that Robert Connell was a well respected Freemason


The son of an Irish coast guard named Lot Connell, Robert Connell arrived in WA in 1886 and immediately joined the Police Force. In 1894 he was transferred to the Detective Branch (later the CIB) and rose through the ranks - Sub-Inspector (1899), Inspector (1904) in charge of the CIB and Chief Inspector (1911) - to eventually take over as Commissioner after the downfall of Hare.

As a Sub-Inspector at Kalgoorlie he was badly injured in the line of duty (1900) and had to be temporarily placed at Albany. After taking office as Commissioner under difficult circumstances, he followed through on many of the improvements planned or begun by Hare. Along with Matthew Smith, Connell deserves to be remembered as possibly one of the two most important Police Commissioners in WA history. Connell was a forward-thinking, strong willed officer, one capable of developing fairly intense personal likes and dislikes, but who also strove to maintain a balance between the different arms of the Force. The Traffic and Liquor and Gaming branches were founded during his years in office, while major reforms shook up the mode of police education in 1915. The introduction of women into the Police force was another key change in direction. As Commissioner, Robert Connell was an interesting figure in public life – he spoke, wrote and acted like a model gentleman of the Victorian era. He was the grandfather of the famous 'wheeler and dealer' of the WA INC years, Laurie Connell.



William Archibald Douglas (1873-1934)
Commissioner: February 1, 1933 to November 23, 1934

  It is believed that William Archibald Douglas was a well respected Freemason

William Douglas was a Victorian by birth and worked as a labourer before joining the police in 1896. He began in the mounted section and, like Hunter, tried the Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) briefly. He showed greater aptitude for 'practical' policing and rose steadily through the ranks in the course of wide-ranging service all over the state. As a corporal (a rank abolished later) he was highly commended in 1916 for his interest in and humanity towards Aborigines. Douglas was placed in charge of the North-West District as a 3rd Class Inspector in 1924.

He was there at the time of the Forrest River incident. From 1927 he was a 2nd class Inspector at Perth Central Station and, after a notable promotional row with Hunter and Purdue (1929), Acting Chief Inspector in charge the Liquor Branch in 1932. His premature death while serving as Commissioner was blamed on ill health brought about by great hardships he endured in the outback.

David Hunter (1878-1947)
Acting Commissioner: November 23 to December 4, 1934
Commissioner: December 4, 1934 until December 31, 1945


  It is believed that David Hunter was a well respected Freemason


After working as a store man in Victoria, David Hunter joined the police in 1901. He was transferred to the CIB in 1902, but had a somewhat chequered career. In 1907 he switched to the Mounted Police (Leonora, Laverton and Northampton), in which he served with great distinction. He took part (along with William Douglas) in the notable Canning Stock Route expedition of 1911-1912.

Promotion to sergeant did not come until 1923; Commissioner Connell handpicked him with a brief to totally reform Traffic Branch. Hunter performed so well that he was promoted to Inspector in 1927. After that, his rise was meteoric and controversial (Second Class inspector late 1927, First Class Inspector 1928, Chief Inspector 1933). His promotion to Commissioner was almost automatic - he had gained experience in all branches of the Force except the Water Police and had modernised and improved the Traffic portfolio. Hunter proved to be a wily and far-sighted Police Commissioner and made a major administrative contribution to the State during the traumatic Great Depression and World War 11 years.

John Doyle (1887-1987)
Acting Commissioner: January 1 to December 31, 1945
Commissioner: January 1, 1946 to April 15, 1951

 It is believed that John Doyle was a well respected Freemason


John Doyle, originally from county Wexford in Ireland, served in the Royal Irish Constabulary from 1907 to 1913. He joined the WA Police in 1914. He was transferred to the CIB in 1916 and later worked with the famous Grenville Purdue on the O'Neill murder. Identified as a 'brainy' operator who specialised in complicated cases, Doyle reached commissioned rank (3rd Class Inspector) in 1935.

Doyle was officer-in-charge of the CIB from 1936 and jumped rank to 1st Class Inspector (1937), a promotion marked by disputes with the Commissioner and an appeal to the Minister. He succeeded Purdue as Chief Inspector (1940) and Hunter as Commissioner after the job was advertised for the first time. He proved to be a tough, demanding but fair-minded Commissioner and was later awarded an OBE. One of the most spectacular public events of his career was a Royal Commission of 1949 which investigated Doyle's management of the Force; the Commissioner was vindicated.

Thomas Hermann Andersen (1894-1975)
Commissioner: April 16, 1951 to January 4, 1958
 It is believed that Thomas Hermann Andersen 
was a well respected Freemason

Thomas Andersen, a former Fremantle labourer and the son of a settler of Danish origin, joined the Force in 1914 and gained experience as a mounted officer and in administration. He was transferred to the Liquor Branch when it was formed in 1923. Andersen became a sergeant in 1934 and jumped rank to 1st class sergeant in 1938; the responsibilities of the Inspector in charge of the branch had been expanded to include the Weights and Measures and Firearms Branches, so he was well-placed to secure a senior position.

He bolstered this by obtaining an array of qualifications in accountancy and mercantile law. Andersen was promoted to Inspector in 1945 and rose rapidly to Chief Inspector in 1949. As Commissioner in place of Doyle, he moved to capitalise on the passing of an era of continual financial constraints, but failed to manage internal turbulence in the Police Force effectively. He was eventually moved sideways and placed in control of the Betting Control Board.

The Dictionary of Australian Artists: painters, sketchers, photographers and engravers to 1870

amateur photographer and public servant, was born at Perth (WA) on 5 March 1836, son of John Randall Phillips and his first wife. He was employed as a clerk in the Colonial Secretary’s Office in 1852 and was one of the party sent to rendezvous with the explorer Robert Austin at Shark Bay in 1854. He was appointed assistant colonial secretary in 1880 and commissioner of police in 1887. He was also an amateur photographer. His albumen silver photograph of a group of Aborigines in ragged European dress (c. 1861) survives in the disassembled album (p.c., Perth) of Alfred H. Stone . Newton suggests that Phillips and Stone learned photography together.

Phillips was married three times: to Ruth Rachel Perry on 14 September 1848, to Annie Emma Hare on 22 July 1869, and to Vittoria Ellen Jane Burges on 16 February 1886. He died at East Perth on 26 March 1900.

WESTERN Australia contains no better known military figure than that of Colonel Phillips. Associated with the Civil Service in the colony since 1851, he has been actively before the public for nearly the whole of that period. For many years his attention was devoted to his work in the Colonial Secretary's office, and at different times he has performed all the duties attendant on the Colonial Secretaryship, with a seat in the Executive Council. Then he was a most active member of the local volunteers, and held the position of Commandant of the Western Australian Military Forces. He entered the ranks as a private, and rose to the highest appointment in the gift of the military authorities for this colony. Subsequently he took up the duties of Commissioner of Police.

George Braithwaite Phillips was born in Perth in 1836, and is the son of John Randell Phillips, a pioneer of 1831. The latter gentleman came to the colony to take up land, but, subsequently changing his mind, he entered the Public Service. In 1853 the pioneer died; his son, Colonel Phillips, has well maintained the dignity of his name. As a boy, Colonel Phillips was educated at Albany, but leaving a public school at the age of thirteen years he enjoyed the joint tuition of his father and a private tutor. In 1851 he became a clerk, on probation, and without pay, in the Colonial Secretary's Office, Perth, and in March, 1852, he obtained a place on the permanent staff as third clerk. The Public Service was then but a limited affair, and Colonel Phillips has witnessed the growth of the present extensive system. Of a somewhat adventurous dispositon, he was chosen by the Government in 1854 for important work. It had been arranged, when Surveyor Robert Austin started on his exploration of north-west country, that a vessel should be sent to Sharks Bay with stores to meet him when part of his journey was completed. The young clerk in the Colonial Secretary's office was placed in charge of these stores, and though but eighteen years old he proceeded to the place of meeting. After remaining in that then inhospitable locality for several months, instead of, as was expected, a few weeks, vainly waiting for the exploring expedition, he was compelled to return to Perth. The explorers had failed to penetrate the dense thickets and miserable small bush which for many miles surrounded Sharks Bay. At Perth, Colonel Phillips attended to his work, and in 1856 was appointed second clerk in the Colonial Secretary's office. Combined with these duties, he was engaged in the capacity of confidential clerk to Governor Hampton, and was also Assistant District Registrar of Births, Marriages, and Deaths. Then the confidence in which he was held was shown by the Royal Geographical Society in asking him to take the post of second in command of their expedition, equipped to explore the west coast, under F. T. Gregory. He accepted the flattering offer, but the Governor prevailed upon him to resign, and remain at his post in the Public Service. During the next few years he paid close attention to his work, and his reward came in 1865, when he was gazetted acting chief clerk in his office. In the following year he was permanently raised to the office of chief clerk. With this position he was Registrar General, Registrar of Titles, and Registrar of Deeds in Western Australia. From December, 1872, to July, 1873, he was Acting Colonial Secretary, and from July, 1875, to August, 1877, and January, 1878, to January, 1880, he was Acting Colonial Treasurer, with a seat in the Executive Council, the chief official body in the colony. In 1878 he was gazetted a Justice of the Peace, and in 1880 he was permanently appointed Assistant Colonial Secretary, and in the same year, and also in 1883, acted as Colonial Secretary.

It was in the early seventies that Colonel Phillips first connected himself with the volunteer force. He entered as a private, and proving ready and quick in all matters of drill, and after mastering the regulations and requirements, he was, in 1875, given a commission in the artillery, and later obtained a command. In 1879 he was made a staff officer. On three separate occasions Colonel Phillips has been Acting Commandant of the Western Australian Military Forces. He resigned his staff officership on the appointment of Colonel Angelo as Commandant, but on that gentleman's retirement he was gazetted Acting Commandant. When Colonel Phillimore arrived in the colony he took up the duties, and Colonel Phillips retired as a captain on the Colonial Office list. In 1887 he succeeded Captain Smith as Commissioner of Police, and had, meanwhile, been brought into active service again in the military force. On Colonel Phillimore's retirement he was raised to the rank of Major. Major Pilkington, the aide-de-camp, was then appointed commandant. Thus, with his work as Commissioner of Police, and in the volunteer service, Colonel Phillips had little spare time. In 1880 he was appointed commandant by the Governor, but was subsequently succeeded by Colonel Fleming, an Imperial Officer. Colonel Phillips now retired from the local forces with the rank of Lieut.-Colonel, and devoted his undivided attention to the police forces.

During recent years he has been compelled to exercise all his ingenuity and ability in the control of the Western Australian police. The population has so increased, and so many new and remote communities have been established, that the police forces have had to be augmented. Colonel Phillips proved himself a master in organising ability. Notwithstanding the presence of numerous undesirable characters, who have migrated hither, like old-time bloodthirsty camp followers of victorious armies, to rob those following the victorious march, crime has not increased in proportion to the increase of population. Every centre and district is well served; the Western Australian police are a fine body of men. Colonel Phillips exercises judgment in his appointment of new members to the service, and he has cleverly placed his forces so as to secure effective administration. During his term of office he has had to conduct numerous important criminal cases for the Crown, the histories of which would supply startling matter for novels.

Colonel Phillips has been twice married; in 1869 to the second daughter of Mr. Edward Gustavus Hare, one time Superintendent of Police, and afterwards Government Resident at Albany; and on the second occasion to a daughter of the late Mr. Samuel Burges, "Tipperary," York. Colonel Phillips has a fine military presence. Whether in the Colonial Secretaryship, in the military forces, or in the control of the local police forces, he has acquitted himself with distinction, and is to be reckoned among the large number of local born public men who have placed the colony under debts of gratitude for their public services.

OBITUARY. THE COMMISSIONER FOR POLICE. DIED THIS MORNING. A BRIEF ILLNESS. It is with extreme regret that we have to record the death of Colonel Phillips, Commissioner for Police, which occurred at about half-past ten o'clock this morning.

The sad event was startlingly sudden, for only on Tuesday last Colonel Phillips was engaged with the work of his department at his office. On the following day he was confined to his room, and Dr. Harvey, and subsequently Dr. Saw, were called in. It was found that Colonel Phillips was suffering from a severe attack of pneumonia, and despite all that could be done for the sufferer, he died as stated this morning.

Colonel George Braithwaite Phillips was a native of the colony, having been born in Perth in 1836. His father was the late John Randell Phillips, who came to West Australia in 1831, and entered the public service shortly afterwards. Colonel Phillips received the groundwork of his education at the Albany public school, after leaving which he received private tuition. In 1851 he secured a position in the Colonial Secretary's office, five years later he had risen to the post of second clerk, and ten years afterwards he was appointed to the office of chief clerk.

At various periods from 1872 to 1880 he was acting Colonial Secretary and Acting Colonial Treasurer with a seat in the Executive Council. In 1880 he was permanently appointed Assistant Colonial Secretary.

In the early seventies Colonel Phillips entered the volunteer forces of the colony as a private; in 1875 he was given a commission in the artillery, and in 1879 he was made a staff officer. On three occasions he has been Acting Commandant of the Western Australian Military Forces, and in 1880 he was appointed Commandant. Shortly afterwards, however, he retired with the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel, and devoted his undivided attention to the police forces.

As Commissioner for Police Colonel Phillips has occupied a difficult and responsible office since the influx of population a few years ago, and the ability with which he has met the strain upon the resources of his department has reflected the utmost credit upon him.

The deceased gentleman has been twice married, in 1869 to the second daughter of Mr. Edward G. Hare, at one time Superintendent of Police, and afterwards Government Resident at Albany, and on the second occasion to a daughter of the late Mr. Samuel Burges, of "Tipperary," York. His second wife survives him, and he also leaves two daughter

General Notes:


COLONEL GEORGE BRAITHWAITE PHILLIPS, J.P.
COMMISSIONER OF POLICE.
WESTERN Australia contains no better known military figure than that of Colonel Phillips. Associated with the Civil Service in the colony since 1851, he has been actively before the public for nearly the whole of that period. For many years his attention was devoted to his work in the Colonial Secretary's office, and at different times he has performed all the duties attendant on the Colonial Secretaryship, with a seat in the Executive Council. Then he was a most active member of the local volunteers, and held the position of Commandant of the Western Australian Military Forces. He entered the ranks as a private, and rose to the highest appointment in the gift of the military authorities for this colony. Subsequently he took up the duties of Commissioner of Police.

COLONEL G.B. PHILLIPS, J.P.
George Braithwaite Phillips was born in Perth in 1836, and is the son of John Randell Phillips, a pioneer of 1831. The latter gentleman came to the colony to take up land, but, subsequently changing his mind, he entered the Public Service. In 1853 the pioneer died; his son, Colonel Phillips, has well maintained the dignity of his name. As a boy, Colonel Phillips was educated at Albany, but leaving a public school at the age of thirteen years he enjoyed the joint tuition of his father and a private tutor. In 1851 he became a clerk, on probation, and without pay, in the Colonial Secretary's Office, Perth, and in March, 1852, he obtained a place on the permanent staff as third clerk. The Public Service was then but a limited affair, and Colonel Phillips has witnessed the growth of the present extensive system. Of a somewhat adventurous dispositon, he was chosen by the Government in 1854 for important work. It had been arranged, when Surveyor Robert Austin started on his exploration of north-west country, that a vessel should be sent to Sharks Bay with stores to meet him when part of his journey was completed. The young clerk in the Colonial Secretary's office was placed in charge of these stores, and though but eighteen years old he proceeded to the place of meeting. After remaining in that then inhospitable locality for several months, instead of, as was expected, a few weeks, vainly waiting for the exploring expedition, he was compelled to return to Perth. The explorers had failed to penetrate the dense thickets and miserable small bush which for many miles surrounded Sharks Bay. At Perth, Colonel Phillips attended to his work, and in 1856 was appointed second clerk in the Colonial Secretary's office. Combined with these duties, he was engaged in the capacity of confidential clerk to Governor Hampton, and was also Assistant District Registrar of Births, Marriages, and Deaths. Then the confidence in which he was held was shown by the Royal Geographical Society in asking him to take the post of second in command of their expedition, equipped to explore the west coast, under F. T. Gregory. He accepted the flattering offer, but the Governor prevailed upon him to resign, and remain at his post in the Public Service. During the next few years he paid close attention to his work, and his reward came in 1865, when he was gazetted acting chief clerk in his office. In the following year he was permanently raised to the office of chief clerk. With this position he was Registrar General, Registrar of Titles, and Registrar of Deeds in Western Australia. From December, 1872, to July, 1873, he was Acting Colonial Secretary, and from July, 1875, to August, 1877, and January, 1878, to January, 1880, he was Acting Colonial Treasurer, with a seat in the Executive Council, the chief official body in the colony. In 1878 he was gazetted a Justice of the Peace, and in 1880 he was permanently appointed Assistant Colonial Secretary, and in the same year, and also in 1883, acted as Colonial Secretary.

It was in the early seventies that Colonel Phillips first connected himself with the volunteer force. He entered as a private, and proving ready and quick in all matters of drill, and after mastering the regulations and requirements, he was, in 1875, given a commission in the artillery, and later obtained a command. In 1879 he was made a staff officer. On three separate occasions Colonel Phillips has been Acting Commandant of the Western Australian Military Forces. He resigned his staff officership on the appointment of Colonel Angelo as Commandant, but on that gentleman's retirement he was gazetted Acting Commandant. When Colonel Phillimore arrived in the colony he took up the duties, and Colonel Phillips retired as a captain on the Colonial Office list. In 1887 he succeeded Captain Smith as Commissioner of Police, and had, meanwhile, been brought into active service again in the military force. On Colonel Phillimore's retirement he was raised to the rank of Major. Major Pilkington, the aide-de-camp, was then appointed commandant. Thus, with his work as Commissioner of Police, and in the volunteer service, Colonel Phillips had little spare time. In 1880 he was appointed commandant by the Governor, but was subsequently succeeded by Colonel Fleming, an Imperial Officer. Colonel Phillips now retired from the local forces with the rank of Lieut.-Colonel, and devoted his undivided attention to the police forces.

During recent years he has been compelled to exercise all his ingenuity and ability in the control of the Western Australian police. The population has so increased, and so many new and remote communities have been established, that the police forces have had to be augmented. Colonel Phillips proved himself a master in organising ability. Notwithstanding the presence of numerous undesirable characters, who have migrated hither, like old-time bloodthirsty camp followers of victorious armies, to rob those following the victorious march, crime has not increased in proportion to the increase of population. Every centre and district is well served; the Western Australian police are a fine body of men. Colonel Phillips exercises judgment in his appointment of new members to the service, and he has cleverly placed his forces so as to secure effective administration. During his term of office he has had to conduct numerous important criminal cases for the Crown, the histories of which would supply startling matter for novels.

Colonel Phillips has been twice married; in 1869 to the second daughter of Mr. Edward Gustavus Hare, one time Superintendent of Police, and afterwards Government Resident at Albany; and on the second occasion to a daughter of the late Mr. Samuel Burges, "Tipperary," York. Colonel Phillips has a fine military presence. Whether in the Colonial Secretaryship, in the military forces, or in the control of the local police forces, he has acquitted himself with distinction, and is to be reckoned among the large number of local born public men who have placed the colony under debts of gratitude for their public services.

THE COMMISSIONER FOR POLICE. DIED THIS MORNING.
 
A BRIEF ILLNESS.
 
It is with extreme regret that we have to record the death of Colonel Phillips, Commissioner for Police, which occurred at about half-past ten o'clock this morning. The sad event was startlingly sudden, for only on Tuesday last Colonel Phillips was engaged with the work of his department at his office. On the following day he was confined to his room, and Dr. Harvey, and subsequently Dr. Saw, were called in. It was found that Colonel Phillips was suffering from a severe attack of pneumonia, and despite all that could be done for the sufferer, he died as stated this morning. Colonel George Braithwaite Phillips was a native of the colony, having been born in Perth in 1836. His father was the late John Randell Phillips, who came to West Australia in 1831, and entered the public service shortly afterwards. Colonel Phillips received the groundwork of his education at the Albany public school, after leaving which he received private tuition. In 1851 he secured a position in the Colonial Secretary's office, five years later he had risen to the post of second clerk, and ten years afterwards he was appointed to the office of chief clerk. At various periods from 1872 to 1880 he was acting Colonial Secretary and Acting Colonial Treasurer with a seat in the Executive Council. In 1880 he was permanently appointed Assistant Colonial Secretary. In the early seventies Colonel Phillips entered the volunteer forces of the colony as a private; in 1875 he was given a commission in the artillery, and in 1879 he was made a staff officer. On three occasions he has been Acting Commandant of the Western Australian Military Forces, and in 1880 he was appointed Commandant. Shortly afterwards, however, he retired with the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel, and devoted his undivided attention to the police forces. As Commissioner for Police Colonel Phillips has occupied a difficult and responsible office since the influx of population a few years ago, and the ability with which he has met the strain upon the resources of his department has reflected the utmost credit upon him. The deceased gentleman has been twice married, in 1869 to the second daughter of Mr. Edward G. Hare, at one time Superintendent of Police, and afterwards Government Resident at Albany, and on the second occasion to a daughter of the late Mr. Samuel Burges, of "Tipperary" York. His second wife survives him, and he also leaves two daughters.

THE LATE COLONEL PHILLIPS. THE FUNERAL.
 
The remains of the late Colonel George Braithwaite Phillips, commissioner for police, were interred with military honors at the East Perth Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon. The funeral arrangements were of an elaborate character. The coffin was carried from the deceased's late residence, Yeovil, Adelaide-terrace, by four sergeants of police and four sergeants of the No. 1 Field Battery, and placed on a gun carriage drawn by six horses. The cortege soon afterwards moved off, and, as it did so, it passed through lines of police and artillerymen. Then the solemn procession was formed. An escort of Perth infantrymen, who were also the firing party, led with rifles reversed. Then followed the Headquarters Band and that of the Fremantle Infantry, which played appropriate slow marches, including the Portuguese Hymn and the Dead March in 'Saul.' The gun carriage, with the remains, followed. The coffin, was covered with the Union Jack, and among some of the wreaths were the deceased's gentleman's helmet and arms. The pall-bearers were Sir George Shenton (President of the Legislative Council), Sir James Lee Steere (Speaker of the Legislative Assembly), Sir John Forrest (Premier), Mr. J. B. Roe (sheriff), Mr. George Glyde (chief clerk in the Lands Department), and Mr. James Morrison. The chief mourners, Mrs. George B. Phillips, (widow), Mrs. Sept.

Burt, Mr. Reginald Burt, and Mr. Cecil Foss. The deceased's charger, led by two officers of police, was next in the procession. The animal was saddled, and in the stirrups were a pair of Wellington boots reversed. The police on foot, to the number of over 120, and who had been drawn from all ranks, followed in double file, and their rear was brought up by Inspectors Drewery and M'Kenna, and Sub-inspectors Hogan, Sellenger, and Back, Detective-inspector Campbell, and ex-Sergeant Buck. The plain-clothes policemen and the members of the criminal investigation branch were also largely represented. The members of the Perth Artillery, Fremantle Artillery and Infantry, and Guildford Infantry came next in that order, and they were followed by several officers of the Fremantle Gaol, Superintendent Lapsley and two officers of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade, Captain Newland, and the officers who were in command of the various corps. Among the military officers were Colonel Chippindall, the Commandant of the Western Australian forces; Major Campbell, Staff Officer; Major J. Talbot Hobbs, Major Strickland, and Major Hope. Colonel Haynes was also among the officers. This brought to an end the official procession, which was about a quarter of a mile long. The civilians who attended on foot were very numerous. Prominent among these were Mr. F. H. Piesse, Commissioner for Railways ; Mr. H. B. Lefroy, Minister of Mines; Mr. A. Forrest, M.L.A., Mayor of Perth; Mr. Justice Stone; Mr. F. B. North, undersecretary to the Premier; Mr. Alpin Thomson, under-secretary for Railways ; Mr. M. E. Jull, under-secretary for works; Mr. H. J. Saunders, M.L.C.; Mr. L. S. Eliot, under-treasurer; Mr. F.

S. Roe, police magistrate ; and Mr. J. F. Campbell, master of the Mint. Several hundred others followed on foot, and a long line of carriages brought up the end of the mournful procession. The late Commissioner's vehicle and pair were used for the conveyance of wreaths, which were very numerous. Among the carriages which formed part of the cortege was that of the Administrator, who was represented as Administrator by Mr. Harold Wright, private secretary, and as Chief Justice bv Mr. W. K. Ainslee, associate. Mr. G. RandelL M.L.C., the Colonial Secretary, was also among those who drove. On arrival at the cemetery the coffin was borne to the church by officers of the police and the artillery. The first part of the burial service was said in St. Bartholomew's Church, and the remains were subsequently carried to their last resting-place on the eastern-side. in close continguity to the chapel, and at the foot of the grave of the late Bishop Parry. The body was interred in ground occupied by the deceased's first wife, and a daughter who died about six months ago. Bishop Riley officiated at the grave, where he was attended by Dean Goldsmith, and the Revs. D. J. Garland, C. E. Lefroy, F. J. Price. John Ellis, P. J. Davoren, W. Cutts, and Needham. At the conclusion of the service the escort fired three volleys over the grave of the dead officer, and the Headquarters Band played 'It is Well with My Soul.' The scene at the grave, around which the immediate relatives and friends were congregated, was very pathetic, and many eyes were dimmed with tears as the last rites were read. The military arrangements were carried out under the supervision of Major Campbell; while the mortuary details were entrusted to Messrs. Bowra and O'Dea. The coffin was of polished jarrah with heavy black mountings, and it bore the simple inscription - 'George Braithwaite Phillips, died March 25, 1900, aged 64 years.

THE DEATH OF COLONEL PHILLIPS.
 
MILITARY FUNERAL.
 
The last tribute of respect paid yesterday to the remains of the late Colonel Phillips was solemn and imposing in its character, a fitting testimony of appreciation of the work of one who had spent his life time in the service of the public. All classes of the public were represented at the funeral, but the police and the volunteers, with whom the deceased had been most intimately associated, were most prominent. Several thousand people gathered along the route of the procession, and all bared their heads as the gun carriage which bore the coffin passed by.

It was a full military funeral, and when the hour fixed for departure arrived the coffin was carried from Yeovil House, Adelaide-terrace, Perth, the late residence of the deceased. by six bearers, consisting of three sergeants of police and three of the Perth Artillery, and placed on the gun carriage.

The Union Jack covered the coffin upon which also were laid the sword, helmet, and belt of the deceased officer, and several beautiful wreaths placed there by Mrs. Phillips and her two daughters. The cortege then formed, a company of the Perth Infantry, commanded by Major Strickland, and constituting rifle firing party, being in advance and carrying their arms reversed. Then came the Headquarters Band and the Fremantle Volunteer Band, which immediately preceded the gun carriage, upon which the coffin was resting, the pall bearers being Sir John Forrest, Sir Jas. Lee-Steere, Sir George Shenton, Mr. J. B. Roe, Mr. G. F. Glyde, and Mr. James Morrison.

The chief mourners were the widow of the deceased, Mrs. Sep. Burt and Miss Burges, Mr. Sept. Burt, Q.C., Mr. A. S. Burt, Mr. Reginald Burt, Mr. O. Burt, Mr. Fred. Burt, Mr. Cecil Foes, and Mr. R. G. Burges, M.L.C. Immediately behind the mourners followed the deceased's charger, and then came about 120 police on foot, companies of the Perth and Fremantle Artillery, the Guildford Infantry, several warders of the Fremantle Gaol, members of the Fire Brigade, and a great many of the public on foot. Among the carriages was that of His Excellency the Administrator of the Government, containing Mr. J. B. Wright (private secretary to His Excellency) and Mr. Ainslie (the Chief Justice's associate).


The Mayor also sent his carriage, with the town clerk (Mr. H. E. Petherick) as his representative. A great many other carriages also followed. When the procession, which proceeded by way of Adelaide-terrace, Bennett-street, and Forrest-avenue. reached the cemetery gates, it was met by His Lordship the Bishop of Perth, Dean Goldsmith, Rev. J. D. Garland (Bishop's chaplain), Rev. C. E. C. Lefroy, Rev. F. J. Price, Rev. John Ellis, Rev. J. P. Davoren, Rev. A. G. Cutts, and Rev. Mr. Needham, who formed a procession and led the way into the mortuary chapel, whither the coffin was also borne. The first portion of the burial service was then read, and then the coffin was carried to the grave, which is situated on the northern side of the chapel and just at the foot of the grave of Bishop Hale.

The reading of the burial service was finished by His Lordship, and then the Perth Infantry fired three volleys over the grave. One by one the friends of the deceased had a last look at the coffin after it had been lowered into the grave and then turned away. Amongst those around the grave, in addition to the pall-bearers and mourners and clergy already mentioned, were; Judge Stone. the Mayor of Perth (Mr. A. Forrest, M.L.A.), Mr. E.

The example of the late Commissioner, both as a loyal and zealous servant of the Crown, and a private citizen, may well be followed by members of the civil service of the colony." A large number of telegrams of condolence at the death of Colonel Phillips has been received by the Premier.

It remained in a similar position to-day.

Western Australian Police "WORST POLICE FORCE IN AUSTRALIA" Part2

http://awn.bz/BrendonOConnellSpeaksOut.html


      The history of policing in Western Australia
      began with the founding of the colony
      in 1829 when Governor Stirling appointed
     a few part-time constables to
    maintain public order in Perth and Fremantle.

                                             

A troop of Mounted Police was formed in 1834 and other types of police were added as the needs of the colony changed, particularly after the introduction of convicts.
The colony's Legislative Council passed a Police Ordinance in 1849 that outlined police powers and responsibilities.
An organised police force did not as yet exist. The force was formally established in 1853, when a Chief of Police was appointed and a Code of Rules published outlining an administrative structure.

In 1861, a second and expanded Police Ordinance was passed to clarify the chain of command, the powers and responsibilities of members and the various offences they had to deal with. In that year, the force consisted of about 75 commissioned officers and men.
The extent of police jurisdiction expanded with the State, and by the time the Police Act of 1892 - still largely in force - was passed, the number of members had increased threefold.

Until the era of Commissioner Robert Connell, who took the reigns in 1912, the management of the police was largely in the hands of colonial gentry, former military men and public servants.

Connell came to power at a time when major technological innovations, such as the introduction of finger printing and motor transport, were about to change the nature of police work. During his 21-year stint as Chief of Police, he introduced a number of major reforms that gave the police force a stable shape and structure until the present age.

One example was the introduction of the first women police in the State in 1917.

They remained something of a separate entity and carried out quite specialised functions until being integrated into general policing in the 1970s.

Since the numbering system was introduced for members in 1898, over 10,000 men and women have served in the police.

The changing of the organisation's name to the Western Australia Police Service came with the appointment of Commissioner Robert Falconer in 1994, the first police officer with a non-West Australian career background. Mr Falconer began a reform process involving structural and personnel changes on a large scale. The Delta Program was utilised to introduce these changes.

The following Commissioner, Barry Matthews, was the first Chief of Police appointed directly from another country since 1867. The present Commissioner, 

Karl O'Callaghan, is currently overseeing changes in the structure and administrative style of the service as far-reaching as that of the Connell era.


WA Police Commissioners 1958-present
https://www.police.wa.gov.au/About-Us/Our-history/Episodes-in-our-policing-history/WA-Police-Commissioners-1958-to-present

1853-1867 | 1867-1958

James Murray O'Brien (1901-1989)

Acting Western Australian Police Commissioner: 5 January 1955 to 4 January 1958
Western Australian Police Commissioner:  5 January 1958 till 24 August 1965



A chemist's assistant before becoming a probationary constable in 1921, O'Brien spent time in general duties in various districts, gaining valuable administrative experience as a station boss. He then served in Traffic Branch from 1942 to 1948 before moving into administration. He was promoted to Inspector (1949), then Chief Inspector (1952) and was the first holder of the newly created rank of Deputy Commissioner from 1953. An efficient administrator; during the difficult period from 1955 he demonstrated both reliability and tact as Acting Commissioner before officially taking over from Andersen in 1958. O'Brien presided over what was virtually a 'golden age' in terms of public respect for, and acceptance of, the Police Force. His reputation is secure; a well-educated, considerate, capable and popular Commissioner.


Richard Thomas Napier (1907-1984)

Western Australian Police Commissioner:   24 August 1965 31 till May 1971

Richard Napier was a direct descendant in the male line of a Scottish family which can be traced back to the early 1600s and was almost certainly a branch of the famous Clan Napier. Napier was a WA farm labourer and the son of a policeman; he joined the mounted section of the Police Force in 1927. After performing duty at various city and country stations, he became a sergeant in 1946. Napier divided his time between Perth Central Station, Traffic Branch and the Liquor Branch until being promoted to Inspector and transferred to Perth Central in 1952. During several years as officer-in charge of the large, complex Traffic Branch (1954-1959) he proved himself to be a capable administrator. As a uniformed officer, he had gained the broadest possible experience. Napier became Chief Inspector in 1959 and Deputy Commissioner in 1964 before being handpicked to succeed O'Brien. The general consensus is that he was a well-liked and efficient Commissioner whose achievements included a major rank restructuring of the Force and various other reforms.


Athol Logan Moore Wedd (1912-1993)

Western Australian Police Commissioner:  1 June 1971 to 13 September 1975

A Probationary Constable from 1933, Athol Wedd moved to the CIB in 1939. He gained a reputation for thoroughness and efficiency as a Detective, being rewarded with the brevet rank of Inspector of 1960. Wedd was promoted to the substantive rank of Inspector in 1963, was in charge of the CIB (1966-1967) and then became Chief Inspector (1967) and Deputy Commissioner (1969) before taking over from Napier. He was the first of a series of CIB men who achieved the highest rank.  Wedd was an articulate and clever man who, for all his CIB experience, endeavoured to draw on his experiences as a uniformed man to maintain administrative harmony. His years in office were difficult ones - the highly charged political environment and very rapid social changes did not sit well with a traditionally conservative Police Force or with the Commissioner himself.



George Owen Arthur Leitch (1919-2006, known as Owen)

Western Australian Police Commissioner: 13 September 1975 to 15 February 1981

Owen Leitch was a member of the first intake of police cadets in 1936. He was attached to the Liquor and Gaming Branch until being selected for the CIB in 1948; from 1952 he was in the Scientific Bureau of the CIB, moving into administration in 1971. Leitch was commissioned as an Inspector in 1970, becoming Chief Superintendent in 1971, Assistant Commissioner in 1974 and Commissioner in 1975. He left the Force in 1943 to serve in the RAAF during World War II. He reached commissioned rank, but arrived back in the Pacific theatre from officer training just a little too late for active service. As was standard practice, Leitch returned to the Police Force without loss of seniority. As a detective, Leitch attracted notice for outstanding work on the Arrison, Armanasco, Elson and Winmar murders from 1952 onwards. His period as Commissioner was a colourful one; he attracted both praise and blame for taking a strong law enforcement stance on various issues. In general, he was popular with the rank and file for his strong and committed leadership.



John Henry Porter (Born 1922)

Commissioner: 16 February 1981 to 28 February 1985

John Porter was the son of a Scottish police officer and a member of the RAAF in World War 11, during which he served in New Guinea. He joined the Police Force in 1946. After a brief period in general policing duties, he spent the balance of his career in the CIB (both Perth and Kalgoorlie) until gaining senior administrative rank in 1975. He was successively an Inspector (1973), then Chief Inspector and Chief Superintendent (both 1975).Promotion to Senior Assistant Commissioner (1978) meant that he had jumped rank twice - an indication of how highly he was regarded within the Police Force of the day. Porter had gained a reputation for analytical skill in his handling of prosecutions in the 1960s.
 As Commissioner of Police, John Porter was noted for his grasp of administrative detail and firm approach to disciplinary issues. A family tradition of police service continued after him - two of his sons became commissioned officers.



Brian Bull (Born 1933)

Commissioner: 1 March 1985 to 19 June 1994

Brian Bull was WA born and bred; he became a police cadet in 1949. He served in the metropolitan area in his early years and moved to the CIB in the 1960. Mr Bull was in charge of the Fraud Squad when promoted to Inspector in 1984. In the same year, he was successively promoted to Chief Superintendent and Assistant Commissioner and then became Commissioner on March 1, 1985. He obtained Tertiary qualifications before gaining commissioned rank. As Commissioner, he responded to the changed circumstances of the day by instituting a range of community policing initiatives, introducing merit-based promotion and expanding training and education for police officers.  During his term as Commissioner, the Police Force grew rapidly and the number of specialised branches and sections created to deal with ever-changing and more complex patterns of criminal behaviour increased. Before retirement, Brian Bull put in place mechanisms for truly large-scale reforms.

    A Western Australian Police whistleblower
     in a corrupt political system -Frank Scott

Western Australian Police officer FRANK SCOTT exposed corruption in the Western Australian Police Force

Both major political parties in West Australia espouse open and accountable government when they are in opposition, however once their side of politics is able to form Government, the only thing that changes is that they move to the opposite side of the Chamber and their roles are merely reversed. The opposition loves the whistleblower while the government of the day loathes them.

It was therefore refreshing to see that in 2001 when the newly appointed Attorney General in the Labor government, Mr Jim McGinty, promised that his Government would introduce whistleblower protection legislation by the end of that year. He stated that his legislation would protect those whistleblowers who suffered victimization and would offer some provisions to allow them to seek compensation.

How shallow those words were; here we are some sixteen years later and yet no such legislation has been introduced.

Below I have written about the effects I suffered from trying to expose corrupt senior police officers and the trauma and victimization I suffered which led to the loss of my livelihood.

Whilst my efforts to expose corrupt police officers made me totally unemployable, those senior officers who were subject of my allegations were promoted and in two cases were awarded with an Australian Police Medal. I describe my experiences in the following pages in the form of a letter to West Australian parliamentarian Rob Johnson. 1 Hon. Robert (Rob) Frank Johnson MLA JP Suite 2, Endeavour House Corner Endeavour Road and, Banks Ave, Hillarys WA 6025 (08) 9307 8311

Dear Mr. Johnson

My name is Frank Scott and I am a former detective sergeant who was discharged from the Police Service after alleging that some members of the police hierarchy were corrupt. I had intended to contact you last year when I saw the “death notice” you placed in the paper after Peter Ward had died.

I had no idea that you and he were friends but I am sure that if you knew Peter well, you would have found him to be an extremely honest person and one that went out of his way to help people who needed legal assistance. During the time when Peter was the Ministerial advisor to the Police Minister, he was contacted by an informant who claimed that Detective Sergeant Colin Pace had been receiving corrupt payments from prostitutes and illegal gaming operators whilst he was the officer-in-charge (OIC) of Port Hedland CIB. The informant also told Peter to contact me and I would be able to provide evidence of a corrupt association between detective sergeant Colin Pace and race horse trainer, Bob Meyers.

This incident occurred when I was the sergeant-in-charge of the CIB Bank Fraud section and detective senior sergeant Pace was my direct supervising officer. I was able to glean evidence that sergeant Pace had concealed a letter of complaint and supporting documentary evidence which had been forwarded to the Fraud Squad for investigation by a large corporation who came to the conclusion that race horse trainer Bob Meyers had presented them with a fraudulent cheque.

He was then responsible for falsifying the file register which I maintained to record details of all the investigations carried out by my subordinate officers.
Detective sergeant Les Ayton who subsequently became the Deputy Commissioner of Police was also a serving member of the Fraud Squad at the time of this incident and had a close friendship with sergeant Pace.

Both of them had previously served in the Fraud Squad together years earlier when the Commissioner of Police, Brian Bull was the Senior Sergeant-in-Charge of the Fraud Squad. As a result of the allegations of corruption levelled at sergeant Pace, the Minister of Police forwarded a memo to the Police Commissioner requesting that an investigation be initiated to determine whether it was appropriate for sergeant Pace to be promoted to the rank of Inspector.

 The Commissioner of Police Mr Brian Bull conducted two corrupt internal investigations into the antecedent conduct of sergeant Pace and both these investigations exonerated him from any malfeasance. In his report to the Minister, the Commissioner claimed that the allegations made against sergeant Pace were totally unfounded and he had an excellent service record which warranted his promotion.

To support his findings, the Police Commissioner attached a statement prepared by brevet Inspector Les Ayton as a character reference attesting to sergeant Pace’s merit for promotion.

 When brevet inspector Ayton was promoted to rank of superintendent as the inaugural OIC of the Police Internal Affair Unit which had been created by the Commissioner of Police to investigate police corruption, I provided him with overwhelming evidence that clearly established that Inspector Pace was corrupt and had been for many years. I also informed him of the corrupt conduct of several other high ranking members of the police hierarchy that included the chief superintendent in charge of the Criminal Investigation Branch and the chief superintendent in charge of Crime Services.

One of my allegations against them which superintendent Ayton failed to investigate related to the incompetent or corrupt manner in which these officers had condoned the outlaw motor cycle gang “The Coffin Cheaters” to illegally supply and distribute vast amounts of prohibited drugs, launder large sums of money, and illegally trade in liquor at their annual Bindoon concerts. In addition, I advised him of the inappropriate manner in which some of these members of the police hierarchy had invited a notorious criminal and the head of this organised crime gang to attend and address a police briefing prior to that concert.

 At that briefing which comprised some 20 sectional leaders including myself, the head of this outlaw motor cycle gang began to give us instructions as to how we were to perform our duties at that concert. It was sickening to watch senior police management cower to his demands, knowing that this criminal and his criminal mates would be free to peddle their drugs at their concert with total impunity. I was the only one who challenged his commands and I became extremely concerned with his overtly close relationship with some senior police officers.

Later, after examining records at the Liquor and Gaming Branch, I was able to ascertain that the Director of Liquor Licensing had refused to grant a Liquor Permit to the “Coffin Cheaters” in a Liquor Licensing Court hearing two years earlier. In his written decision, he concluded that many of “Coffin Cheaters” club members had extensive criminal records and a total disregard for the law and therefore were not fit and proper persons to be involved in the sale of liquor on such a large scale as was intended at the Bindoon Rock Festival. 3 In his written decision, he wrote; “My third concern is whether the Club is a fit and proper person, or body of persons, to hold the permit. One of the objects of the Liquor Act is to ensure that liquor is not sold by persons who are not fit and proper to do so. In this case, the Club is not a legal entity (although it is related to companies which are).

The Club comprises about 15 members. Many of those members have a long history of criminal offences. Mr Withnell, for example, has several convictions for offences in the mid 1979’s. These include assault, carrying an offensive weapon, disorderly conduct, possessing an unlicensed firearm, and, most seriously rape.

For the last of these, he was sentenced to 11 years imprisonment with hard labour. He has received other gaol sentences for serious assault and a further eight years imprisonment in 1979 for robbery with violence.

Other members, such as Patrick McKay, Bradley Wood, Christopher McKay, Peter Jewell, Mark Ashelford, Gut Turtun, Larry Allen, Trevor Walton, George Cole and Jeffrey White have also been convicted of many serious offences in the 1970’s and 1980’s.

These cover a wide range of offences against the person and property, as well as unlawful possession of drugs and firearms.

Some occurred within the last year or two. (In mid – 1987, for example, Jeffrey White was sentenced to 18 months gaol for receiving stolen goods) While in most case, the most serious offence occurred several years ago, the nature and extent of the offences have led me to conclude that many of Club members have a disregard for the law and that, as a result, they are not fit and proper persons to be involved in the sale of liquor on such a large scale as is intended at the Bindoon Rock Festival. Despite the fact that there was a Liquor Licensing Court ruling that the members of Coffin Cheaters outlaw motor cycle gang were not fit and proper persons to be issued with a Liquor Permit, senior police officers continued to allow this organised crime gang to sell liquor at their annual concert.

 It was inconceivable that they would also consider it appropriate for the head of this outlaw motor cycle crime gang to be invited to address a police briefing and allocate duties to police officers who had a responsibility to ensure that his criminal motor cycle gang complied with their legal liabilities. I advised superintendent Ayton that I strongly suspected some senior police officers were consorting with one of the most feared criminals in West Australia and had assisted him in circumventing a court decision by allowing his crime gang to continue to conduct their annual Bindoon rock concerts. I also advised him that I led a team of undercover officers inside the compound during that concert where we obtained photographic evidence of the illegal manner in which it had been conducted and evidence of the vast amount of prohibited drugs which were being openly distributed at the concert. 4 Once the chief superintendent-in-charge of Crime Services had discovered that I had that photographic evidence, he seized those photographs from me and was attempting to stifle my endeavours to commence criminal proceedings against the “Coffin Cheaters” licensee company and its approved manager.

Superintendent Ayton listened to my allegations and I expected that he would conduct a covert investigation into my claims. I certainly did not consider that he would immediately approach those members of the hierarchy who were subject of my allegations and informed them of my complaint against them. Needless to say that was the end of my police career and the following day I received a telephone call from the chief superintendent of Crime Services who demanded that I attend his office forthwith. As I had anticipated his response, I attended his office with a small tape recorder and as I sat down to commence our interview, I produced my tape recorded and told him that I would be recording our conversation. When I turned on my tape recorder, he started making threatening gestures at me without saying anything while he waited for a superintended to also attend his office and act as his corroborator. During that interview, I was told in no uncertain terms that my position as officer-incharge of the Fremantle Liquor and Gaming branch had been terminated with immediate effect and that I was being transferred back to Perth the following day to commence an investigation into the accusations of misconduct, impropriety and corruption I had made to superintendent Ayton.

 He instructed me to liaise directly with him and I was not to discuss my investigation with any other person. Should I need to refer to any police documents during my inquiry, I was ordered to notify him prior to taking possession of the relevant document.

 In effect, I was being commanded to conduct an investigation into the complaints that I had made to superintendent Ayton and report the findings of my investigation directly to one of the persons who I alleged had acted corruptly. (I did exactly that) To support my investigation, he provided me with a small interview room within the Liquor and Gaming branch which contained a table, chair and telephone and told me I was to occupy that room during this special project. Further, he said that this special investigation which he had assigned for me was not a result of any malice he harboured towards me, but because of the expertise I had shown in researching and submitting a comprehensive 20 page report that I had handed him some months previously and had also forwarded a copy to superintendent Ayton.

I had submitted that report after receiving a complaint from the detective sergeantin-charge of the Port Hedland CIB who advised me that some managers of licensed premises had a complete disregard for the laws relating to the Liquor Licensing Act and the Gaming Commission Act, which resulted in illegal gaming and prostitution becoming entrenched in some licensed premises at Port Hedland.

In an attempt to disrupt these illegal activities, the local police had conducted an investigation into the manner in which the licensee of the Pier Hotel had conducted his business and forwarded a brief of evidence to the superintendent in charge of the Liquor and Gaming branch seeking his authority to commence legal proceedings against the offenders.

However, he failed to respond to their request and the police officers at Port Hedland had become extremely disillusioned by his apathy as they considered that ample evidence had been attained to sustain a conviction against the licensee.

The superintendent-in-charge of the Liquor and Gaming branch had previously served as the inspector in charge of the Port Hedland police station and knew the licensee.

As I continued my interview with the chief superintendent, he stated that he had great confidence in my ability to adduce the necessary evidence to substantiate criminal charges against all those offenders and expected that I would bring my investigation to a succinct conclusion within three weeks.

He also gave me explicit instructions to commence disciplinary charges against a subordinate colleague of mine and charge him with “unlawfully consuming alcohol at an unlicensed restaurant” in Broome while he was on annual leave.

As our interview terminated, I advised both of them that I had an appointment to see superintendent Ayton the following day and would be playing the recording of our interview to him as I considered that I was being persecuted for simply performing the duties expected of me as a senior investigator in the liquor and Gaming branch. After listening to the tape recording, superintendent Ayton said that he considered me to be a competent investigator and advised me to comply with the instructions given to me by the chief superintendent. Despite my protests that it was unethical for me to conduct an investigation into my own complaints against a senior member of the police hierarchy who was my supervising officer, he assured me that he would protect my back and guaranteed that I would not be victimised and my investigations would not be thwarted or impeded.

When I told him that the three weeks I was given to conclude my investigation was totally inadequate and I expected it would take me six months, he advised me to submit a short report and apply for an extension of time and he would ensure that it was granted. He then told me that he was leaving for England within a matter of days to conduct an investigation on behalf of the WA Inc Royal Commission and would inform the commissioner of police of my predicament.

He said that if I experienced any victimisation or my investigation was being hindered in any way, I was to contact his colleague within the Internal Affairs Unit, (IAU) inspector Alan Watson who he said would take the appropriate action. 6 As I began my investigation, I immediately discovered that some police files which I requested to examine had been destroyed and I was being victimised and ostracised by the chief superintendent who thwarted my investigation and circulated rumours throughout the police service that I was a nut case.

My peers within the Liquor and Gaming branch were instructed that they were forbidden to speak to me or assist me in any way during my investigation.

After the three week period which I was given to complete my investigations had expired, I submitted a short report as I had been advised to do so by superintendent Ayton, stating that I had nowhere near finished my investigation and requested an extension of time to bring my investigation to a satisfactory conclusion.

That request was denied and instead, the chief superintendent instructed me to reorganise the Liquor and Gaming branch file room which was the normal duty of our office cadet. When I reported these matters to inspector Watson of the Police IAU, he told me that he had no knowledge of my investigation and stated that I always had the propensity to swim against the tide. I was completely flabbergasted by his remarks and considered that he was derelict in his duty for failing to support my investigation into the suspected corrupt activities of senior police officers. Whilst performing the demeaning task of reorganising the file room which was in a chaotic state, some of my colleagues were secretly providing me with information.

 I was able to ascertain that the chief superintendent had forwarded my investigative reports to the OIC of the Police Internal Investigators and demanded that I be charged with criminal defamation.

Amongst those reports which I had provided him, was the result of my investigation into the instructions he gave me to commence disciplinary charges against a fellow member of the Liquor and Gaming branch. My investigation concluded that there was prima-facie evidence that he himself had committed an offence under the provisions of the “Police Regulations” and I recommended that disciplinary charges against him should be considered.

I also received information that after he was advised by the OIC of the Police Internal Investigators that there was no basis for any criminal charges against me, he decided that when I returned to work after completing my annual leave, he would have me sent to a psychiatrist with a view to have me certified insane. After Superintendent Ayton returned from England, I confronted him and provided him with a copy of all my investigative reports which I had submitted to the chief superintendent and told him that I had received reliable information that he was about to order me to be examined by a psychiatrist with a view to have me certified insane. He laughed and said they were trying to break me and wouldn’t allow that happen.

However, he failed to mention why I was not given an extension of time to complete my investigations or why I was not protected from victimization as he had promised. 7 I knew my police career was over shortly later when I was served with a notice by the commissioner of police ordering me to present myself for a psychiatric assessment by Consultant Physician in Psychological Medicine, Professor Allen German.

In his report, Professor German stated that he could find no evidence whatsoever of any diagnosable psychiatric disorder but considered that I was suffering from a work related stress disorder because of the serious conflict I found myself with senior police management. He further stated that my condition would only get worse if I remained in that causal situation and therefore recommended that I be discharged from the Police Service on medical grounds. When I found out that Professor German had recommended that I be discharged from the Police Service on medical grounds, I again confronted superintendent Ayton at 1.00pm on Monday 23 March 1992 and handed him a copy of a 132 page treatise I had written about three years earlier which dealt with the corrupt conduct of members of the police hierarchy and the corrupt association between detective inspector Colin Pace and race horse trainer, Bob Meyers.

I kept that treatise confidential for my own protection as I expected that corrupt senior members of the Police hierarchy would attempt to victimize me as a result of the stance I had taken against detective inspector Pace who I knew was being groomed to become the next Chief Superintendent in charge of the CIB. After completing that treatise, I gave a copy to two people I knew I could trust, Mr Peter Ward at the Police Minister’s office and a detective inspector who was my best friend and supplied me with some information of police corruption.

I was motivated to write that exposé of corruption by members of the police hierarchy sometime after the 4 August 1988 when Mr Peter Ward from the Police Minister’s Office had brokered a meeting between me, the deputy commissioner of police and the assistant commissioner of police (crime).

That meeting had been instigated after Mr Ward received a telephone call from the assistant commissioner of police on 28 July 1988 who wanted to meet him in his office to discuss matters relating to police corruption. When Mr Ward arrived at his office, the deputy commissioner of police was also present and during their discussion, the assistant commissioner of police said; “Young Scottie has got this bee in his bonnet about police corruption. There is nothing in his allegations. It’s just sour grapes on his behalf because he got the sack from the CIB.”

 Mr Ward responded by telling the two senior police officers that he knew exactly what evidence I had and he considered that the WA police force had a similar problem as in Queensland but on a smaller scale and that cancer needed to be cut out. He told them that he supported me 100%. The assistant commissioner then said; “If Scottie has got all this information, why doesn’t he come and tell us?” Mr Ward replied by telling them that if they could show me that they could be trusted, perhaps I would speak to them and he also stated that I was prepared to take my allegations of corruption to the wire. It was then, that the assistant commissioner of police advised him that they would like to speak to me.

Mr Ward purposely did not tell them of his own personal knowledge of the corrupt association between detective inspector Pace and race horse trainer, Bob Meyers after his former girlfriend had attended the Police Minister’s office in late February 1988 to complain about police corruption. During his meeting with Bob Meyers’s former girlfriend, she complained of the inept manner in which the CIB Consorting Squad had conducted an investigation into a brutal baseball bat bashing of her boyfriend and his companion which had been organised by Bob Meyers. She advised Mr Ward that she had made a complaint to detective sergeant (name deleted) at the CIB Consorting Squad some months prior to that assault and told him that Bob Meyers was known as the “Godfather” who could easily arrange violent beatings and that he was being protected by detective inspector Colin Pace. She also informed him of an occasion when inspector Pace was present at Bob Meyers’s racing stables when he and his criminal associates were dividing up stolen property.

Despite providing the detective sergeant with that information, he failed in his duty to investigate her allegations and had he done so, the bashing of her boyfriend and his friend may have been averted.

She also advised Mr Ward that during that brutal baseball bashing of her boyfriend and his companion, they sustained serious injuries which required hospitalisation and yet Bob Meyers had been charged with a trivial offence which was totally inconsistent with the severity of the crime.

She strongly suspected that the detectives in the Consorting Squad had corruptly reduced the seriousness of the criminal charges against Bob Meyers because of his friendship with inspector Pace. 9 Some weeks later, Mr Ward also received a visit from an apprentice jockey who was employed by race horse trainer Bob Meyers and he wanted to make a complaint against inspector Pace and Bob Meyers who he claimed had ripped him off about $50,000. He also alleged that they had stolen his cabin cruiser boat registered number 21395 and trailer registered number UWA 974 and that the detectives at Belmont CIB had refused to investigate his complaint.

As a result, Mr Ward contacted the Department of Marine and Harbours and obtained a computer printout of two boats which were identical except for their colour. Both boats were currently licensed; the first was numbered 21395, named “Miss Attwood Phantom” and was registered to the apprentice jockey on the 30/5/85.

The other boat was numbered 19400 which had been first registered to Colin Burns Pace on the 10/3/86. He provided me with the computer printout of the details those boats and we agreed that it appeared highly likely that the same boat was licensed by two different people.
Mr Ward also arranged for me to meet with the Director of the Department of Traffic Licensing and Services in Mount St, Perth where I obtained a computer printout of the history of boat trailer registered number UWA 974 and found that the licence of that trailer had been transferred into the name of Colin Burns Pace on the 1/3/1986 without the consent of the jockey who was the lawful owner. I was later able to establish that inspector Pace had a corrupt association with a vehicle examiner at the Welshpool Traffic Licensing Centre where Bob Meyers had previously obtained a vehicle licence for one of his horse floats without the required vehicle inspection.

That same corrupt vehicle examiner at the Welshpool Licensing Centre conducted the vehicle inspection on trailer registered number UWA 974 on the 21/3/1986. I then drove to Belmont police station where I obtained a photocopy of the of the “offence report “which was submitted after the apprentice jockey had reported his boat and trailer stolen. The yellow copy of the “offence report” was normally forwarded to a detective for investigation and it clearly showed that the suspected offenders for stealing the boat and trailer were Colin Pace and Bob Meyers. 10 In those days the police used to investigate themselves and in circumstances where a criminal complaint was made against a serving police officer, it was incumbent of the OIC of the Belmont CIB to notify the Commissioner of Police or the OIC of the Police Internal Investigating Unit so that a senior officer above the rank of Inspector could have been appointed to investigate that complaint. However, no investigation was carried out and the “Offence Report” was marked “no offence” and filed.

I strongly suspected that within minutes of the jockey reporting his boat and trailer stolen, inspector Pace would have been advised of that complaint and would have instructed the junior officer to file the report as a civil dispute and not a criminal matter.
The day after Mr Ward had his meeting with the two members of the police hierarchy, he phoned me and asked me to come over to his office where he told me about the conversation he had with them.

After he had described the details of that meeting, I told him that the assistant commissioner of police was being unbelievably and transparently duplicitous as it was him who had set up a Task Force in mid April 1988 to investigate Bob Meyers and his corrupt association with inspector Pace.

He was also responsible for arranging a motel room in Como where the Task Force members could meet without inspector Pace’s knowledge and he was fully aware that I was a member of that Task Force.

During my meeting with both the deputy commissioner and the assistant commissioner of police on the 4 August 1988 at the Police Minster’s office, I advised them of the manner in which detective inspector Pace had attempted to thwart the Task Force investigation into the criminal conduct of his mate, Bob Meyers and also of the evidence I had gleaned which established that inspector Pace had stolen a boat and trailer belonging to an apprentice jockey.
I also told the assistant commissioner of police that I was disgusted in the manner in which he had sacked detective senior sergeant Kevin Rowe, who was also a member of this Task Force and transferred him from the CIB back into uniform. 




Robert Falconer


Commissioner: 20 June 1994 to 20 June 1999

Commissioner Falconer was of Scottish birth and joined the Victorian police in 1963. He had gained very varied experience in practical policing work and was Deputy Commissioner in charge of operations when he was appointed to the WA position. Robert Falconer was the first person without any West Australian career background to be gain the office since Matthew Smith in 1871. There is little doubt that from day one Mr Falconer had a mandate for sweeping institutional change.

He instituted the Delta Reform programme, which may be likened to a third managerial revolution in the history of WA policing. Some traditional branches were rationalised or even abolished, with widely differing outcomes. The Police Force was renamed the Western Australia Police Service. Opinion among WA police officers of the time was divided in terms of the success of the changes; few would have denied that radical reforms were necessary.


Barry Eldon Matthews

Commissioner: from 21 June 1999 till 20 June 2004

Barry Matthews was a career police officer from New Zealand who, after 30 years of service, rose to the rank of Deputy Commissioner. He obtained high academic qualifications and eventually became a Bachelor of Laws. Despite this, he remained with the police after being admitted as a barrister and solicitor. Barry Matthews was the first West Australian Chief of Police to be appointed directly from overseas since 1867.

During his time in office in WA, Mr Matthews continued with a steady and more deliberate process of reform implementation. As has often been the case in the past, there were differences of opinion with the political wing of Government over the independent of his office. Robust discussion over the issues attracted considerable media attention. The most important event of the Matthews stewardship was a Police Royal Commission that delivered its findings in early 2004. While past abuses of position and trust were identified in some areas, especially in crime detection, the findings where not as damaging as might have been expected. Many serving officers are of the opinion that the reform programme had already resolved some key problems.


Karl Joseph O'Callaghan

Commissioner: from 21 June 2004

The current serving Commissioner of Police, Mr O'Callaghan is the youngest person to hold the position since Robert Connell and the first since Richard Napier who has never worked as detective. He became a police cadet in 1974 and later gained the highest academic qualifications ever held by a Police Commissioner in WA – the degrees of Bachelor of Education and Doctor of Philosophy. In the course of his police career Mr O'Callaghan has served in the metropolitan area, the north-west and in the south-west. As a Superintendent, he was Officer in Charge of the Wheatbelt District, one of the historic traditional jurisdictions of WA policing.

His first years as Commissioner have been marked by a renewed emphasis on the basic role of police as crime prevention and crime detection officers. The introduction of a 'Frontline First' policy and an organisational name change to Western Australia Police is symbolic of the intent.

Categories: [ Brendon O'Connell, Iran, Israel ]

http://www.truthnews.com.au/web/radio/story/brendon_oconnell_on_iran_israel_and_freedom_of_speech_in_australia

Today we welcome Brendon O'Connell back to the show. Brendon was convicted in 2010 under controversial anti-discrimination laws after posting a series of Youtube videos depicting Israel as a "racist, homicidal regime".

After his release, Brendon continued with his activism and was charged again, but fled to Iran while on bail. He joins us today from Kuala Lumpur.

Brendon talks of the infiltration of Australian security networks, telcos, banking and medical systems in Australia by Israeli intelligence operatives. He also talks about his experiences in Iran and his understanding of the political currents in that country.

Finally, Brendon goes through some of the issues regarding legislation in Australia which threatens freedom of speech and his intention of taking his case to the High Court.

A highly unusual and eye-opening interview!

I think O’Connell isn’t crazy at all - there’s ample evidence that the world is governed by the globalists / zionists, and that no career-minded politician would dare to question the zionist agenda.

Many thanks Hereward for making me sound respectable. Great interview and I've been digging up a bucket on PHP and Israel. Part of it featured in my new video based around Netanyahu's visit to Australia.

Thank you for having Brendon on as a guest!

On one hand I admire some of the work Brendan has done, on the other, I don't agree with his approach. All his cloak and dagger stuff may be true, and that is something that should concern us all. The problem I have with him is that he tends to lump Jews into one big conspiratorial basket, every man, woman and child. If that is not his intention, that is certainly how it comes across to me, who is not Jewish, and I can see how your average Jewish person would feel threatened and offended. For years I have been an opponent of Zionism, Marxism, Islamism and left-wing racism and have written extensively on the subjects, but have always seared clear of any idea that suggests "collective guilt or blame" which is the domain, in my opinion, of racists and ignoramuses, both left wing and right. There are fanatical Jews and racist Jews, there are also Jews who don't give a fuck about the religion; there are Jews who oppose the state of Israel Jews who support it and Jews who are undecided. There are some Jews who wouldn't live in Israel if you paid them, and some who would not live anywhere else. There are some Jews who believe Israel is in need of reform. There is also a school of Jewish rabbis who are anti-Zionist and who think the state of Israel is an abomination. In terms of Marxism, I also strongly oppose its promotion of racism against "white" people on the basis of their skin color and their assumption that Caucasian humanity is somehow responsible for all the ills of the world. Historically this is total bullshit and is used as a weapon of propaganda to further advance totalitarianism. I also oppose mass Muslim migration to the west, for obvious reasons which are to do with the numbers involved (which are ludicrously high); the fact that these people will never be able to find work or permanent accommodation and that their anger and frustration will further increase the frequency of terrorist attacks...there are also very serious assimilation problems in relation to their religious beliefs. I also support the work of Muslim reformists and critics like Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali-born Dutch-American activist who exposes Islam and works very hard to preserve western civilization and its values. I would also remind people that it was Israeli sources who first alerted the world to the plight of Christian communities in the Middle East, who were and are still being slaughtered and persecuted in tens of thousands...it was also Israel who rescued many and offered them permanent accommodation in Israel. Further, I just don't see how the rise of Islam in Europe and elsewhere is of benefit to Israel. Brendan's critique is a valuable contribution, but the problems are not as clear cut as he believes. As for Joanne Fleming,..at least she has freedom of speech going for her, nothing much else. https://www.facebook.com/gr...

Hereward, I tried to edit my response and it disappeared again. I must be doing something wrong. You may have to reup it. Sorry mate... I won't touch it again

TNRA Mod  Eugene Donnini 

I am using Disqus.com for commenting. Disqus is free, crappy software with an insane admin interface that looks like it was designed by a troupe of monkeys on crack. I changed the setting yesterday to allow links in comments but today it flipped back again, and it took me hour to find the admin page when this setting is HIDDEN. When you re-edited the comment the dumb, unwanted setting that should never have been on in the first place kicked in again, thus HIDING your comment.

Bit sad that O'Connell is obviously mentally ill. Completely delusional. Everything he touches fall apart.

Brendon O'Connell  Harry Abrams 

If I'm "mentally ill" and "delusional" then what does it say about the entire Israeli state and political class coming out against me?

Harry Abrams  Brendon O'Connell

You're not mentioned on any the stuff you've got posted at that link. That's OK. I'm still waiting for the video you said you were going to post that details all of

these warrants outstanding against you. BTW...I really don't think that you'll get anywhere near Australia's High Court to dismantle the anti-hate legislation, If the Iranians wouldn't consider it...then for sure Australia won't either.

Jan Robertson  Harry Abrams

With a name like Abrams you're Jewish I take it? Also it's a Jewish trait to ridicule everything truthful about Jews.

Eugene Donnini  Jan Robertson 

that says a lot

Robert Chapman  Harry Abrams 

If he's so mentally ill why is he being prosecuted for being a criminal? Why is he not in a metal health ward? Looks like your statement has flaws. Why can so many from numerous nations attack Muslim's, openly? Why can you criticize CATHOLICS, PROTESTANTS OR PERSIAN? Or any religion other than Orthodox Jew's?

Harry Abrams  Robert Chapman 

He doesn't know what he's been going on about, and certainly. Either do you. Brendon's not in jail but he's on the run for threatening a policeman.

The above is just outside the Perth Supreme Court. It's a HolocaustTM memorial.

Just about every U.S President has been a Freemason. During WW2, President Roosevelts war cabinet was almost entirely made up of Zionist Jews.

Jewish revolutionaries were instrumental in the Communist revolution in Russia. 

  

State Department document 861.00/1757 was sent on 2 May 1918, from Moscow by US Consul General Summers to the U.S Department of State reporting that...

"Jews predominate in local Soviet government, anti jewish feeling growing among local population which tends to regard oncoming Germans as deliverers."

State Department document 861.00/2205, was sent from Vladivostok on 5 July 1918, by US Consul Caldwell to the U.S Department of State noting...

"50% of Soviet government in each town consists of Jews of the worst type, many of whom are anarchists. It would be a grave mistake on our part to officially recognize Bolshevik who scarcely represent [blank] of the population."

  

US Military Intelligence officer, one captain Montgomery Schuyler, sent a report to Washington from Omsk on 1 March 1919, describing in detail the Jewish role in the Russian Revolution...

"It is probably unwise to say this loudly in the United States but the Bolshevik movement is and has been since its beginning, guided and controlled by Russian Jews of the greasiest type..."

US Military Intelligence officer, one captain Montgomery Schuyler, sent a report to Washington from Vladivostok dated 9 June 1919 stating that Jews [control Bolshevik Revolution]…

"These hopes were frustrated by the gradual gains in power of the more irresponsible and socialistic elements of the population guided by the Jews and other anti-Russian races. A table made in 1918 by Robert [Hilton], the correspondent of the London Times in Russia, shows that at that time there were 384 commissars including 2 Negroes, 13 Russians, 15 Chinamen, 22 Armenians and more than 300 Jews. Of the latter number 264 had come to Russia from the United States since the downfall of the Imperial Government."

Hess, Engels and Marx were the founders of Communism. Marx would call Hess, "My Communist Rabbi." Did you even know this? Don't believe what you're reading? But wait, there's more, this time from Winston Churchill himself -  Winston Churchill wrote a full page article for the Illustrated Sunday Herald on 8 February 1920 detailing the Jewish involvement in the Russian Revolution?

 

"Good and Bad Jews

...

And it may well be that this same astounding race may at the present time be in the actual process of producing another system of morals and philosophy, as malevolent as Christianity was benevolent, which, if not arrested, would shatter irretrievably all that Christianity has rendered possible. It would almost seem as if the gospel of Christ and the gospel of Antichrist were destined to originate among the same people; and that this mystic and mysterious race had been chosen for the supreme manifestations, both of the divine and the diabolical.

'National' Jews

There can be no greater mistake than to attribute to each individual a recognizable share in the qualities which make up the national character. There are all sorts of men -- good, bad and, for the most part, indifferent -- in every country, and in every race. Nothing is more wrong than to deny to an individual, on account of race or origin, his right to be judged on his personal merits and conduct. In a people of peculiar genius like the Jews, contrasts are more vivid, the extremes are more widely separated, the resulting consequences are more decisive.

At the present fateful period there are three main lines of political conception among the Jews. two of which are helpful and hopeful in a very high degree to humanity, and the third absolutely destructive.

First there are the Jews who, dwelling in every country throughout the world, identify themselves with that country, enter into its national life and, while adhering faithfully to their own religion, regard themselves as citizens in the fullest sense of the State which has received them. Such a Jew living in England would say, "I am an English man practising the Jewish faith." This is a worthy conception, and useful in the highest degree. We in Great Britain well know that during the great struggle the influence of what may be called the "National Jews" in many lands was cast preponderatingly on the side of the Allies; and in our own Army Jewish soldiers have played a most distinguished part, some rising to the command of armies, others winning the Victoria Cross for valour.

The National Russian Jews, in spite of the disabilities under which they have suffered, have managed to play an honorable and useful part in the national life even of Russia. As bankers and industrialists they have strenuously promoted the development of Russia's economic resources, and they were foremost in the creation of those remarkable organizations, the Russian Co-operative Societies. In politics their support has been given, for the most part, to liberal and progressive movements, and they have been among the staunchest upholder of friendship with France and Great Britain.

International Jews

In violent opposition to all this sphere of Jewish effort rise the schemes of the International Jews. The adherents of this sinister confederacy are mostly men reared up among the unhappy populations of countries where Jews are persecuted on account of their race. Most, if not all, of them have forsaken the faith of their forefathers, and divorced from their minds all spiritual hopes of the next world. This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Webster, has so ably shown, a definitely recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.

Terrorist Jews

There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution, by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews, it is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders. Thus Tchitcherin, a pure Russian, is eclipsed by his nominal subordinate Litvinoff, and the influence of Russians like Bukharin or Lunacharski cannot be compared with the power of Trotsky, or of Zinovieff, the Dictator of the Red Citadel (Petrograd) or of Krassin or Radek -- all Jews. In the Soviet institutions the predominance of Jews is even more astonishing. And the prominent, if not indeed the principal, part in the system of terrorism applied by the Extraordinary Commissions for Combating Counter-Revolution has been taken by Jews, and in some notable cases by Jewesses. The same evil prominence was obtained by Jews in the brief period of terror during which Bela Kun ruled in Hungary. The same phenomenon has been presented in Germany (especially in Bavaria), so far as this madness has been allowed to prey upon the temporary prostration of the German people. Although in all these countries there are many non-Jews every whit as bad as the worst of the Jewish revolutionaries, the part played by the latter in proportion to their numbers in the population is astonishing."



 

One of the reasons why the Western Australian Police Commissioner Dr Karl Joseph O'Callaghan and his Western Australian Police Service and the Task Force are not interested any real information and investigation into the Claremont Serial Killings is because the truth of who was involved and why the Claremont Serial Killings and other rapes, attempted rapes, abductions, attempted abductions, murder, attempted murder, billion of illegal drugs sold in Western Australia, Armed robberies hits a bit too close to home and a bit to close to powerful people that are protected and are effectively above the law ... and have the green light given to them by the Western Australian Police Service to be able to commit or be involved in  any crime they want without fear of investigation and/or arrest.


 Some Comments taken from  the NYT.bz Investigation Team's explosive investigation into the lat 60 year on the policing, political, courts, government, prosecution, criminal networks, social and business networks, media, business and legal world of Perth and Western Australia....


What the Western Australian Police Commissioner Karl O'Callaghan and Stephen Brown, the Deputy Western Australian Police Commissioners and the various Assistant Western Australian Police Commissioners need to do to help to start solving Western Australia’s crime ever increasing crime woes is to sack all the Western Austrian Police Officer involved in committing serious crimes and/or protecting those who are involved in committing serious crimes such as illegal drug, importation, manufacture, growing and distribution, armed robberies, fraud and abductions, rape and murder …
The NYT.bz investigation team have for a long time offered information in their explosive investigation report on the history of crime, politics, law, policing, courts and the legal world of Perth and Western Australia 
 The NYT.bz investigation files that cover the last 60 years in Western Australia have plenty of evidence and examples of Western Australia Police Officers, including very senior police as high as the Commissioner of Police being involved in committing serious crimes and/or protecting those who are involved in committing serious crimes such as illegal drug, importation, manufacture, growing and distribution, armed robberies, fraud and abductions, rape and murder … Unfortunately there is a culture Western Australia where by Western Australian Police are not keen to police themselves when the police are committing crimes … there is a brotherhood and even sisterhood code of silence that stops one police officer in Western Australia from bringing to light criminal, wrongful and/or immoral actions committed by other Western Australian Police Officers, no matter how bad or how serious the crime and/or wrongful and/or immoral action committed by Western Australian Police Officer. A special investigation report on the running to the state of Western Australia covering, politics, law, courts ( clerical and judicial staff and employed in the courts), police, prosecution, crown law, the legal fraternity (lawyers barristers, magistrates, judges, justices), the ministry of justice, police, business, illegal drug networks, criminal networks, media, business, finance, banking, the Western Australian Public Trustee and all levels and sections of the Western Australian Government and semi-quasi government bodies and organisations etc., prepared over the last 60 years at great expense and thousands of man hours and resources …. Shows along with many others the following examples … In the report names are mentioned and the everything and everyone is exposed….. with no holes bared in exposing the whole rotten lot and everyone involved and how it all operates and who operates what and why? Without naming names in this short general comment on the Karl O'Callaghan, the Western Australian Police Commissioner’s comments in the West Australian Newspaper about how to reduce the ever increasing crime rate in Western Australia the following examples are give: 

1. A well known drug/heroin user named “Mary” was in the Bat and Ball Tavern in Rivervale, Perth, Western Australia when two of the Western Australian Police Drug Squad approached Mary and stated … “….. Mary… we know that you are a well known Heroin User and user of other illegal drugs …. if you try to score heroin or other illegal drugs in this tavern, we will have to bust you and arrest you for purchasing illegal drugs, however is you go to the Charles Hotel in North Perth, were our approved drug dealer works, then you will not be busted or arrested for buying illegal drugs …” Mary took their advice and went to the Charles Hotel in North Perth and purchased Heroin from the Western Australian Police Drug Squad 2 Drug Dealer and was not harassed, bust or arrested for purchasing heroin at the Charles Hotel in North Perth … 

2. One of the Western Australian Police Commissioners lived in the same street in City Beach, Perth, Western Australian (which an expensive up market ocean side suburb of Perth, Western Australia ..) … as a major heroin and crystal meth Methamphetamine (contracted from N-methylamphetamine) is a strong central nervous system ....Crystal meth – illicit methamphetamine hydrochloride ... and marijuana dealer in Western Australia .. and this Western Australian Police Commissioners and his family went to Sunday Barbeques with the major heroin and chystal meth and marijuana dealer in Western Australia ….. in fact this Western Australian Police Commissioner organised for this major heroin and crystal meth Methamphetamine (contracted from N-methylamphetamine) is a strong central nervous system ....Crystal meth – illicit methamphetamine hydrochloride ... and marajuana dealer in Western Australia to be released early form a 15 year jail sentence he had received for sale and supply and importation of heroin in Western Australia … so he could re-start selling illegal drugs for the crime syndicate that this Western Australian Police Commissioner for and with ….when this major heroin and crystal meth Methamphetamine (contracted from N-methylamphetamine) is a strong central nervous system ....Crystal meth – illicit methamphetamine hydrochloride ... and marijuana dealer in Western Australia was in the defendant’s dock in the District Court for his trial in 1983/84 in heroin importation, supply and selling charges …. were he ended up pleading guilty and yelling in a loud voice to the court and at the same time pointing to the Western Australian Police Drug Squad detectives that were sitting in court that had lain the charges and arrested him for importation, supply and selling heroin …. “... your Honour ….. I openly admit that my business is importing, supplying and selling heroin and other illegal drugs …. that is how I make my living ….. I openly admit that …. however I want to point out to the court that those Western Australian Drug Squad Detectives sitting in court today that arrested me for the importing, supplying and selling heroin and other illegal drugs charges are my business partners and have been for the last few years and have shared the profits with me I have made over these years … so why aren’t they charged as well with me for these criminal offences …” Of course nothing happened to the Western Australian Police officers in the Drug Squad .. the major drug dealer was handed a 15 year jail sentence and the he Western Australian Police officers in the Drug Squad continued to find other drugs dealers to partner with to sell illegal drugs in Western Australia … 

3. The was an occasion in Fremanlte were a journalist was attending a Neighbourhood Watch Meeting which was chaired by the Western Australian Police Commissioner… the journalist put his hand up and asked the Western Australian Police Commissioner if an appointment can be arranged for the journalist to have a private meeting with the Western 3 Australian Police Commissioner during the net week to provide details and information about Western Australian Police being involved in the importation, supply and selling illegal drugs in Perth and Western Australia …. the of response the Western Australian Police Commissioner was this … the Western Australian Police Commissioner ordered security to have the journalist removed from the Neighbourhood Watch Meeting and said the journalist he tried to re-enter the Neighbourhood Watch Meeting, the Western Australian Police Commissioner would order the Western Australian Police to have the journalist arrested … the journalist was given a clear message by the Western Australian Police Commissioner… that the Western Australian Police Commissioner was not at all interested in being provided information about the Western Australian Police being involved with the importation, selling and supplying illegal drugs in Perth and Western Australia and that the Western Australian Police Commissioner was very upset that the journalist even mentioned the subject of the Western Australian Police being involved with the importation, selling and supplying illegal drugs in Perth and Western Australia.. 

4. A journalist met a doctor in a Perth, who used to work for the Western Australian Police Service. The Doctor stated that is was quite common and normal for the doctor be get into the lift at Police Head Quarters at number 1 Adelaide Terrace, Perth, Western Australia on a Monday morning on the way up to the doctor’s office at the same time with Western Australian Drug Squad Detectives who had on their possession a number of large green garbage bags of marijuana which they had confiscated from drugs dealers over the weekend …. there were often 4 to 6 large green bags of marijuana they had in their possession … the doctors recounted the typical conversation between the Western Australian Police Officers …. “ the police offer that seemed to be in charge of the other police officers would say something like this .. ‘well boys …. I will take this one bag of marijuana up to be logged into the property room as the official amount of marijuana we busted the drug dealer with over the weekend … and you will take the rest of the bags of marijuana in your car and drop them off to our drug dealer to sell on the streets for us …’ …. and that is what would happen … only one green bag of marijuana was logged into the property room as the amount of marijuana officially found on the drug dealer.. and the other green bags and marijuana was taken by the Western Australian Drug Squad detectives and given to their approved drug dealer to be sold on the streets of Perth and Western Australia .. 

5. A journalist was told by a drug dealer who worked with the Western Australian Police Drug Squad that one of the methods they would organise to bring drugs into Western Australia was by getting a drug courier that worked with corrupt Western Australian Police and corrupt Federal Police to bring into Australian a quantity of illegal drugs which the drug courier would be allowed to get away with bringing them through the airport from overseas or from interstate .. . what the drug courier that worked with the corrupted Western Australian and/or Federal Police would do told to do, was told befriend an innocent young person ( male of female) on the plane or or at the airport and talk them into sharing a hotel room to save money …. the innocent traveller would have no idea that the person that they were sharing a hotel room with was carrying a quality of illegal drugs with them … then the next thing would happen would be that the West Australian Drug Squad would out of the blue early that morning raid the hotel room where the drug courier that was working in with the corrupt police was staying with the innocent traveller …. the drug courier that worked with the corrupted police would arrange to plant/hide the illegal drugs in a draw in the bathroom or under the other innocent traveller’s bed or in the other innocent travellers suitcase or bag ….. without the innocent travellers being 4 aware …. and then when the police raided their hotel room they would be have been told by the drug courier where to find the drugs and both people would be initially arrested for the importation of illegal drugs to make it look good … but int he end the real drug courier will be moved to another prison and quietly be released as being the informer who dobbed the other (actually innocent) traveller in as the drug courier, when in fact it was the drug courier that is released with no charges that was the real dug courier and the traveller that was rotting is jail with no bail and facing up to 20 years in jail for a drug importation charge .. with no one prepared to believe him or her that he or she have been set up … the aim of the exercise to to make it look like the Western Australian Drug Squad and/or the Australian Federal Police have done a wonderful job in busting drug importers with a good informer helping them … this help the police officers rise in the ranks of the police force and they end up retiring on a high police rank with am excellent police pension … the other am of this exercise is that when the drugs are found in the hotel room, only a small quantity of the illegal drugs would be logged into the Police Property section as being found in the hotel room, and the rest of the illegal drugs would be put back for sale on the streets with drug dealers working for and with the corrupt police drug squad detectives …

6. A person who knew a young man when he was around 17 years old, who used to work for him in a take way food business and tried to help the young man who came from a broke home and was a little bit into small petty crimes like breaking and entering and stealing a TV etc …. and tried to help the young man live a proper crime free life … by trying to be a sort of a father figure … the young man eventually went his own way and the person did not see the young man around the streets of Perth for around 5 years…. then after about 5 years when the young man was around 23 years old …. the person ran into the young man one day in the street and offered to buy the young man a cup of coffee …. and something to eat ….. the person asked the young man what he has been going over the last 5 years as Perth is a small town (this was in the second half of the 1980’s and first part of the 1990’s) … and had not seen the young man around for the last five years… the young man replied that he ended up with a heroin habit and robbed a bank of $50,000 to obtain the money to feed his heroin habit .. the young man stated he was finally caught by the Western Australian Police for the bank robbery and the police said to him when he was arrested for robbing the bank for $50,000 .. “.. son …. you are looking to spend up to 20 years in jail for robbing a bank with a gun .. we can help you …  but you have to help us in return …” .. the young man then asked what he had to do or what the police wanted him to do that that he would not end up spending up to 20 years in jail for the bank robbery used a gun … the answer the police gave the young man was staggering to say the least… the police put the following deal to the young man … “ ..if you are prepared to sign a false statement that says that you stole $300,000 from the bank you did actually rob …when you only actually stole $50,000 and you are prepared to sign another false statement that you also robbed three other banks that you did not rob… then we will make sure we put a good word into the judge and make sure you only end up staying in prison for no more than around 5 years ….. however is you  do not take this deal we are offering you .. we will make sure you spend around 20 years in prison and you will be around 40 years old when you get out of prison … whereas if you accept out deal .. we will make sure you are out of prison on parole by the time you are only around 23 years old … “ …. the young man took the deal and the police stuck to their word and the young man was out of prison by the time he was around 23 years old .. the reason why the police wanted the young man to sign a false statement saying he has stolen around $300,000 rather than that actual amount of $50,000 was so that the bank could claim $300,000 from their insurance company rather that only $50,000 .. this way the bank, the bank manager, and the police could share the extra $250,000 from the insurance company .. thereby effectively making the Western Australian Police Service and the Sate of Western Australia … which the police officers are acting as agents for … involved in a conspiracy to defraud the bank’s insurance company .. along with the bank, the bank manager and the police officers involved …. the reasons why the police wanted the young man to sign a further false statement that he had robbed three other banks that he did not rob was to help the police clean up their case solved records and so they could close these armed robbery files …. this would help the police officers involved rise in rank and eventually retire on a high rank with an excellent police pension which is higher the higher the rank they reach in the police force by the time they retire …. also the police had their own set of criminals and criminal networks that they worked with who specialised in armed robberies of shops sand banks including people like Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch, who the nty.bz report shows from witness statements obtained was the actual person responsible for the other three other armed bank robberies that the young man wrongly pleaded guilty for … Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch was at all times form his teenage years working with corrupt police, prison officers and other connected criminal gangs which included the Chinese Triads, doing criminal activities such as stealing luxury car, doing armed robberies, abductions and murders for various reasons including extortion and kidnapping rackets, selling body parts and making snuff and satanic movies and for satanic ritual sacrifice and swearing ceremonies for various groups and networks and to silence certain people who have broken the code of silent or who the various criminals and criminal networks are worried that they know too much and may be tempted to break the code of silence and expose one or more the  criminal network’s criminal activities .. such as the murder of Sarah Anne McMahon by Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch, with the help of Gareth Allen who would have been acting as an assistant to the professional, trained and experience killer Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch who kills without any mercy or compassion and without even the belief that what he is doing is wrong and illegal  .. to people like Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch killing a person is no different than cutting an animal’s throat in a slaughter house and is just business and is usually pleasure as well .. as Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch  seems to like killing people and seems to like have some sort of sexual activity and/or fantasy over a dead naked tied up female and male body … shown by the pornographic photos that Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch  carries around in he sinister black bag consisting of pornographic photos of dead naked tied up female and male bodies with blood on them and blood on their sexual parts .. along with the key rings he has collected for his at least seven murdered victims. Along with rope and knives and gaffer tape all tools for abduction and murder ..

7. Before three witnessed were murdered, they all made witnesses a statements that the late Len Buckeridge, billionaire building Magnate, and his silent Chinese Triad Partners in the BGC Companies and Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch along with certain Western Australian Police have been involved  …  one way or another in the Claremont Serial Killings and other abductions and murders in Western Australia

8. That the Western Australian Police have ample evidence to charge Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch and Gareth Allen of being involved with the murder of Sarah Anne McMahon on the 8th of November, 2000, after the coroner ruled that he believed that Sara Anne McMahon is likely to be deceased and dies by unlawful means… the only Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch and Gareth Allen can be saved from being charged of being involved in the murder of Sarah Anne McMahon on the 8th of November, 2000, is my proving to the family of Sarah Anne McMahon, that she is still alive

9. There is ample evidence to charge charge Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch with a number of perjury charges for false statement he made at the Coroners inquiry and his trial for attemped murder which charge Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch was found guilty of an was sentenced to 13 years jail, but in due for release in 2017 or 2018.

10. There is ample evidence to charge charge Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch with supplying and selling $10,000 or more of  illegal drugs based on the evidence provided at the coroner investigation into the disappearance/death/murder of Sarah Anne McMahon on the 8th of November, 2000, plus other witness statement available of the involvement of Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch with supplying and selling $10,000 or more of  illegal drugs.

11. All effort and ways must be made to charge charge Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch with a new criminal charge or charges before he finishes his current attempted murder prison sentence as no person will be safe with Donald Victor Morey aka Donald Victor Matusevuch out of prison.

Cop spills all on WA police “Welcome To Hell …. !"

“..it is easier to be shot by a Western Australian Police Officer than be eaten by a shark in Perth, Western Australia …”

Anthony DeCeglie, The Sunday Times - December 8, 2012

http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/cop-spills-all-on-wa-police/news-story/c8d2ce9b4d208a21086da6f60119ffa7

Officer A states in his book The Crime Factory detailing his experiences as a Police Officer in Western Australia, after been invited from the London Police Force ( MET) to work in Western Australia with his wife who is also a police officer, in the chapter “Welcome to Hell”.. that is easy to be shot by a Western Australian Police Officer than eaten by a shark..” SEXIST, racist and trigger happy.

A former police officer has written a graphic account of life as a Perth cop in a new book that claims to blow the whistle on what really goes on behind the blue line.

The book, written under the pseudonym "Officer A" and called The Crime Factory, details several years the author spent in the WA Police after coming over in 2006 as part of a recruitment drive to lure British cops.

The book contains accusations of racism, brutality, bullying and binge drinking.

"Policing in Western Oz was like policing in the 1970s in the UK, but more violent, racist and sexist, and the cops had free use of guns and Tasers," it said.

Officer A, who worked in WA until early 2008, said local cops were trigger happy especially when it came to Tasers.

The chapter about his arrival in Perth is called: "Welcome to Hell".

"I'd quickly learnt that in Australia you were much more likely to be shot dead by a cop than get eaten by a shark," he said.

"A significant minority of officers tasered anybody that pissed them off, which was usually anyone with a different skin colour.

"I saw two officers attack a pair of harmless sailors. They were a bit drunk but were completely inoffensive."

He also recounts how his then wife who also came over to work in the force was sent out to execute an arrest warrant on a potentially violent criminal just moments after she told her manager she was pregnant.

The book alleges senior police made it clear the recruits were just a "doctor's quick fix". "The local cops hated us," the author says.

The book traces Officer A's career in WA, starting out at a suburban police station before winning a transfer to a secretive intelligence division as a "covert officer" rounding up informants to take out the "baddest guys in the country". He resigned in 2008 following an incident at a Perth pub, where he says a drunken officer verbally abused him,

then returned to Britain to work for the Surrey police force.

A WA Police spokesman said: "The claims in the book about policing in WA are hard to fathom and probably say more about the author than they do about WA Police.

"There is nothing in the book that gives WA Police any concern."b He said that between 2006 and 2009, 657 overseas officers were recruited in a "highly successful international recruitment campaign". Just over a quarter of those recruits have since quit. Last night, The Sunday Times spoke with the author of The Crime Factory who admitted to having a nervous breakdown after his return to the UK which he claims insiders were trying to use to discredit his book. The breakdown led to a 2010 incident in which he made a drunken phone call from his police station to a colleague claiming that he was going to shoot himself. It caused the station to be stormed by police. He was fined 500 pounds, but the court heard that during his police career he had won several awards.  "I had a breakdown," he said. "It happens. Prior to that I had an excellent service record." He said the book had been a steady seller.

Jane Rimmer was 23 when she went missing in 1996 after a night out in Claremont Ms Rimmer, 23, was abducted from Claremont in June 1996 and her body found in bushland south of Perth that August. Students say they saw Jane Rimmer hitchhiking on Stirling Highway, Claremont near Loch Street at around 12.30 am, the description of what Jane Rimmer was wearing matched the unreleased description the police had so it seems quite certain that it was Jane Rimmer hitchhiking on Stirling Highway near Loch Street. The students had been to an event at the Claremont Yatch Club. 12.30 am would have been about the time it would have taken for Jane Rimmer to walk from Bay View Terrace to around Loch Street on Stirling Highway.

University student Emma Clayton and her friends almost picked up a blonde girl she is sure was Jane Rimmer early on the Sunday Morning Jane Rimmer disapeared.
 Miss Clayton (21 years old uni student) said she saw the girl staggering along Stirling Highway, thumb out, hitching a lift at 12.30 am. Emma Clayton told police about the incident and her description of the cloths Jane was wearing matched that of a police description which had not been released to the media. 
Miss Clayton said she and her friends had been in Stirling Highway after leaving a 21st birthday party at Claremont Yacht Club. "Down near Lock Street we saw a girl Hitchhiking," she said. 
The Girl had her thumb out and we just slowed down and thought maybe we should pick her up but didn't." The conversation between the two couples in the car had been that she was a silly girl for trying to hitch in the area and they discussed whether they should pick the girl up. 
They decided at the last minute to move on. "we said of all placed for a girl to be hitchhiking alone, this was probably the worst," Miss Clayton said. She said initially, after she had heard of Jane Rimmer's disappearance, 16 she felt guilty that that hadn't picked her up. 

"If we had picked her up things would have been a lot different, " Miss Clayton said. When she and her friends saw the girl there were no other cars on the Stirling Highway ...

Nelson Mandela Was a Terrorist

Nelson Mandela Was a Terrorist

December 5, 2013



Left, Nelson Mandela and Joe Slovo in Moscow give the clenched fist salute in front of the blood-drenched Hammer and Sickle flag of  Illuminati Jewish Bolshevism.


Nelson Mandela Dead at 95

Prepare for a nauseating outpouring of media praise 
for Illuminati puppet Nelson Mandela. Terrorists are "freedom fighters"
and "Man of Peace" if they advance the Illuminati agenda. 


Latest!  Must Listen to Stephen Molyneux on Mandela

Nelson Mandela received Weapons Training from Mossad in 1962

Nelson Mandela is the author of "How to be a Good Communist."  The media-orchestrated hysteria tells you that the NWO is also Communist in nature. (i.e. the Illuminati, a satanic secret society, empowered by the banking cartel, colonizes mankind.) 


The African National Congress waged a terrorist war against South Africa's Apartheid regime for 30 years. The plight of Black South Africans under ANC rule is now worse. 
 

by Henry Makow Ph.D. 
(from May 2, 2012)

Terrorism is not terrorism 
when the Illuminati Jewish banking cartel is behind it. 

From 1961-1990, the Illuminati-sponsored African National Congress waged a terrorist war against the Apartheid government of South Africa. It was characterized as a "people's struggle" in the Zionist-controlled mass media.  

However, when the Palestinians employ terror against the Apartheid regime of Israel, they are "terrorists."  Never mind that Israel was built on Zionist terror against the British. When the Illuminati bankers or their shills use it, terrorists are "freedom fighters" and "insurgents." (Syria today is another example.) 

(Terrorist Mandela wins 1994 Nobel Peace Prize)


In South Africa during the 1960's and 70's, barely a week went by without terrorism -- dynamite at a fuel depot, a car bomb outside Air Force headquarters in in a city center. The ANC's guerrilla force -- known simply as MK, or more formally as Umkhonto we Sizwe  translated "Spear of the Nation" was founded in 1961 by Nelson Mandela and his handler, the Communist Jew Joe Slovo.  

At first, the targets were infrastructure but two decades later MK was killing civilians without compunction -- grenades would be bowled into a hamburger joint, or a trip-wired limper mine planted in an arcade -- and Mandela did not object.

"Notable among these attacks were the January 8, 1982 attack on the Koeberg nuclear power plant near Cape Town, the Church Street bombing on May 20, 1983, killing 19, and the June 14 1986 car-bombing of Magoo's Bar in Durban, in which 3 people were killed and 73 injured." (Wikipedia)

Of course, Mandela had been in jail since 1963 when captured in a raid of MK headquarters at a farm outside Johannesburg. The ANC was funded and run by Communist Jews who in turn were shills for the Illuminati bankers. Mandela posed as a farmhand. 

The farm was purchased and run by Jewish Communist Arthur Goldreich, left.
 
Arthur Goldreich, left.

In 1985, when the government offered to release Mandela if he would repudiate terrorism, he refused. In 1990, he was let out anyway and vowed the MK would continue to wreak havoc. It was not necessary.  

The government was ready to negotiate a handover of power. In 1994, Mandela and F.W. de Klerk shared a Nobel Peace Prize. Queen Elizabeth II in her 1996 Christmas message hailed Mandela as a great statesman. (The account of MK terror above is indebted to Philip Gourevitch's review of the novel "Absolution" in The New Yorker, April 30, 2012, p.70)

ANC IS A COMMUNIST JEWISH FRONT

Thanks to Michael Hoffman II, we know:   


"The African National Congress (ANC) in South Africa was guided by two Communist Jews, Albie Sachs, "one of its foremost intellectuals"( London Sunday Times, August 29, 1993) and Yossel Mashel Slovo (Joe Slovo, 1926-1995).

Slovo was born in a shtetl in Lithuania and grew up speaking Yiddish and studying the Talmud. He joined the ANC's terrorist wing, the Umkhonto we Sizwe, in 1961 and eventually became its commander. He was named Secretary General of the South African Communist Party in 1986. ("Joe Slovo," Jewish Chronicle, January 13, 1995).

Slovo had been the "planner of many of the ANC terrorist attacks, including the 1983 car bomb that killed 19 people and injured many others... Slovo, who had traveled to the Soviet Union many times, was awarded a Soviet medal on his 60th birthday...Slovo is a dedicated Communist, a Marxist Leninist without morality of any kind, for whom only victory counts, whatever the human cost, whatever the bloodshed...Slovo disputes little of his image as 'the Communist mastermind' behind the ANC's armed struggle. 


(Albie Sachs, left)

'Revolutionary violence has created the inspirational impact that we had intended, and it has won for the ANC its leading position,' Slovo said." ("Rebel Strategist Seeks to End Apartheid," L.A. Times, Aug. 16, 1987, p. 14). When Nelson Mandela's ANC took over South Africa, Slovo was named Minister of Housing." 

Keep reading for South African housing conditions. 


COMMUNISM IS A RUSE

Wrapped in bogus idealism, Jewish social & political activism largely serves the Illuminati's secret satanic agenda. Jewish activists are dupes or opportunists. The ANC, like Communism in general, deceived the masses into overthrowing the government and installing Illuminati puppets like Nelson Mandela. 

The plight of Blacks in South Africa is much worse under the "peoples' government." The number of people living on $1 a day doubled from two to four million. The unemployment rate doubled to 48% from 1991-2002. (It is 25.2% today.)


In 2006, only 5,000 of the more than 35 million black South Africans earned more than $60,000. A quarter of the entire population lived in shacks without running water or electricity. A quarter have no access to clean water. 40% have no telephone.

The HIV/AIDS/TB infection rate is 20%. Life expectancy dropped by 13 years.  40% of schools have no electricity.

Where is the ANC'S concern for the people? Obviously it was a ruse that enabled the bankers to gain control over South Africa's resources, just as they took over Russia's 70 years before . Source


CONCLUSION

Terrorism is an instrument of the Illuminati Jewish central banking cartel based in London.

Ninety five percent of the world's terror, including 9-11, can be traced to this source via the world's intelligence services, especially the CIA, Mossad and MI-6. They are funding the Taliban so Americans can waste their energy in endless war. 

We live in a society that is breathtaking in its hypocrisy. But that is the strategy, to pretend to be one thing while doing the opposite.

First Comment from Laurens

As a white South African, I must say that I completely agree with you on this one. As you've commented "It would have been better to divide the country into black and white portions." Absolutely true...I've been saying this for years...

I'm not a racist, however, people from different cultures have different ways of life. We should all celebrate our uniqueness, and that of other people.
Therefore it is only fair and just to grant every nation their right to self Governance. But the Illuminati doesn't want that, 'cause if you're the few and want to control the many, you have to centralize decision making, and if you want that you can't afford to have a SA divided into a handful of Independent States... It doesn't suit their agenda for a One World Fascist Dictatorship...

But, to get back to the issue of Mandela the Terrorist, and the ANC government.

This is just another classic example of as David Icke points out the "Inversion" technique used by the Archontic( Demon) force behind the Illuminati.
Taking the truth and turning it upside down -Terrorists winning Peace Prizes (Obama, Mandela etc.)

As in Orwell's 1984 :"Freedom is Slavery" And as someone once said "Slavery: It works better when you don't tell them"
So they gave the masses of South Africa the illusion of "Freedom", with the ANC takeover.

During the ANC takeover in the early 90's, the Government of Bophuthatswana wanted to retain their independence, and didn't want to be a part of the "New South Africa", so they sent the army in, in a coup d' e'tat.

A common victim of the ANC propaganda in the new SA is Dr. HF Verwoerd, South Africa's third Prime Minister, 
being portrayed as "the evil man behind Apartheid".

(Sounds like a theme from Orwell's "Animal Farm"- keep blaming a long dead figure for everything that goes wrong now...)

Verwoerd, The man who withdrew South Africa from the Commonwealth, and who was responsible for bringing SA to Independence as "The Republic of SA" on May 31st 1961. Thereby uniting the Afrikaans and English speaking White People of South Africa,
after half a century of division as a result of the devastating Boer War of 1899-1902.

Today he's portrayed as the "big racist oppressor", while in truth during his reign as Prime minister, the Income growth amongst black South Africans were greater than amongst the whites. The black people back then called him "Ra di Pula" (Bringer of Rain(Prosperity) )
Another classic example of "Inversion" of the truth...

And what happened to Verwoerd? Assassinated...
To be replaced as Prime Minister by the Illuminati puppet John Vorster

The Illuminati didn't want a Independent South Africa, divided into Separate States where each Nation
(Whites, Zulus, Indians, etc.) would have Self governance and Sovereignty...So they replaced Verwoerd with Vorster who gradually started breaking down the original good intentions of Apartheid and turned it into an oppressive regime.

Today under ANC rule, This country's infrastructure is falling apart; our electricity, went from amongst the cheapest to the most expensive in the world.

In the town in which I grew up, My Grandfather was the mayor of the town in 1993,(Just before the takeover), that year they opened a new waste water treatment plant, my gran still has the photo of him and an official from the Department of Waterworks, drinking glasses of purified water that came out of the plant. Today, in the same town, the residents wouldn't even dare drink the tap water...

The list of examples of the deterioration of this country's infrastructure is endless...Amongst the blacks it's even worse...

Another reason why the Illuminati had to eliminate the Apartheid government of SA, is due to the fact that SA was quite a strong military power.
We had a larger military than the rest of Africa combined, and were in possession of various Missiles, and 6 Nuclear bombs.
All of which were dismantled and sold off after the ANC takeover .

In their drive towards a One world government( Fascist dictatorship), they can't afford to have military superpowers who could resist it...

Today, we are daily seeing the most horrible crimes being committed on a daily basis in this country, whereas it was barely existent under the Apartheid government.

We are seeing towns and streets names changed all the time, not because the black masses want to remove the "white" names.
The majority of people just want to go on with their lives...But, we're seeing a systematic attempt to erase the white man's history entirely from this country.

Which is nothing but an attempt by those in power (ANC-Illuminati) to create more racial division between black and white in this country.
Classic Illuminati "Divide and Rule".

An example of how sick this has become,One of the Street name changes the ANC controlled city council made in Pretoria last year , was that of 
"Hans Strijdom Avenue" (Former Prime Minister during the Apartheid era) to "Solomon Mahlangu Ave."

(Mahlangu was a former MK member, who killed 2 white men in a warehouse in Johannesburg in 1977, and were sentenced to death and hanged...)
That's the true nature of the ANC Government- Honoring a Murderer...

New Comment from Richard:



Thanks for your article on Nelson Mandela. As a former South African whose father narrowly escaped being injured by a terrorist bomb place in the local post office in the late 1980s, I have no sympathy for Mandela or any other terrorist.

The apparent decline in the unemployment rate to 25.2% is largely due to the official statistical body (Stats SA) changing the rules and classifying a large proportion of the population as "Not economically active" whom are conveniently excluded from the employment statistics. Table 1 here: 
http://www.statssa.gov.za/publications/P0211/P02111stQuarter2013.pdf shows that the proportion of the labour force employed is 40% (which in my books yields an unemployment rate of 60%) The proportion of the labour force being excluded now exceeds that of the proportion being included!

I thought this may shed some light on the apparent decline of the South African unemployment rate as reported in your article.

                            THE WESTERN AUSTRALIA POLICE HISTORICAL SOCIETY

http://policewahistory.org.au/

WELCOME TO THE WESTERN AUSTRALIA POLICE HISTORICAL SOCIETY'S

Very few people in Western Australia know much about the history of their police service. When did it begin? What type of work did the pioneer police officers do? How did they carry out their duties in the remote areas of the Colony/State? How did they live? And so on.

The Western Australia Police Historical Society has been formed to research and preserve this history.

TRADITIONS

The first peace-keeping constables consisted of fifteen men, working part time and paid for services they performed on behalf of the Courts and local Justices. They commenced duty on December 4, 1829. The Police Force was formally established in 1853, although different types of police were active in the colony in the intervening period.

Since then over 12,000 men and women have served this State as police officers - some for less than one month, others for periods exceeding thirty years. The longest period served was over fifty years by John McKenna who joined on January 1, 1874 and retired on February 29, 1924 as Chief Inspector. This was then the second highest rank in the force. McKenna's career was interrupted for about 12 months in 1898 when he took up a short term position as Senior Inspector of Distilleries.

The first police officer to lose his life in the execution of his duty was Captain Theophalus Ellis (the then Superintendent of Police) who died on November 11, 1834, from a spear wound he received during an incident at Pinjarra, approximately eighty kilometres south-west of Perth. Sadly, since then, more than two hundred other officers have also lost their lives in tragic circumstances in the execution of their duty. Their memory is preserved on a memorial at the Police Academy in Joondalup and is recalled during the annual Police Remembrance Day Service held in September of every year.

George Braithwaite Phillips (1836-1900)
Acting Superintendent: December 9, 1885 to January 13 1887
Commissioner: April 1887 to March 26, 1900


He was related by marriage to other families of the colonial elite, such as the Burts and Hares and, like Smith and his successor Frederick Hare, a member of the influential Weld Club. The Police Act of 1892 was brought into effect in his time - it is still the governing legislation of the Western Australia Police.
As was inevitable, another Commissioner who was of gentry origins - in his case 'plantation aristocracy' from Barbados in the West Indies. Phillips was the son of J.R. Phillips, Resident Magistrate at Albany in the 1840s. George Phillips joined the public service in 1852 and rose to become Assistant Colonial Secretary. He took time out to take part in Robert Austin's exploration expedition to Shark Bay in 1854. Phillips had reserves of both moral and physical courage and was active in the Colonial Defence Force - he was Commandant on two occasions and reached the rank of lieutenant colonel.

The Phillips years were difficult ones for the police of the day, due to the impact of problems relating to the Gold Rush, labour disputes and the pastoral frontier. George Phillips also died in office.



COLONEL GEORGE BRAITHWAITE PHILLIPS, J.P.
COMMISSIONER OF POLICE.
WESTERN Australia contains no better known military figure than that of Colonel Phillips. Associated with the Civil Service in the colony since 1851, he has been actively before the public for nearly the whole of that period. For many years his attention was devoted to his work in the Colonial Secretary's office, and at different times he has performed all the duties attendant on the Colonial Secretaryship, with a seat in the Executive Council. Then he was a most active member of the local volunteers, and held the position of Commandant of the Western Australian Military Forces. He entered the ranks as a private, and rose to the highest appointment in the gift of the military authorities for this colony. Subsequently he took up the duties of Commissioner of Police.

COLONEL G.B. PHILLIPS, J.P.
George Braithwaite Phillips was born in Perth in 1836, and is the son of John Randell Phillips, a pioneer of 1831. The latter gentleman came to the colony to take up land, but, subsequently changing his mind, he entered the Public Service. In 1853 the pioneer died; his son, Colonel Phillips, has well maintained the dignity of his name. As a boy, Colonel Phillips was educated at Albany, but leaving a public school at the age of thirteen years he enjoyed the joint tuition of his father and a private tutor. In 1851 he became a clerk, on probation, and without pay, in the Colonial Secretary's Office, Perth, and in March, 1852, he obtained a place on the permanent staff as third clerk. The Public Service was then but a limited affair, and Colonel Phillips has witnessed the growth of the present extensive system. Of a somewhat adventurous dispositon, he was chosen by the Government in 1854 for important work. It had been arranged, when Surveyor Robert Austin started on his exploration of north-west country, that a vessel should be sent to Sharks Bay with stores to meet him when part of his journey was completed. The young clerk in the Colonial Secretary's office was placed in charge of these stores, and though but eighteen years old he proceeded to the place of meeting. After remaining in that then inhospitable locality for several months, instead of, as was expected, a few weeks, vainly waiting for the exploring expedition, he was compelled to return to Perth. The explorers had failed to penetrate the dense thickets and miserable small bush which for many miles surrounded Sharks Bay. At Perth, Colonel Phillips attended to his work, and in 1856 was appointed second clerk in the Colonial Secretary's office. Combined with these duties, he was engaged in the capacity of confidential clerk to Governor Hampton, and was also Assistant District Registrar of Births, Marriages, and Deaths. Then the confidence in which he was held was shown by the Royal Geographical Society in asking him to take the post of second in command of their expedition, equipped to explore the west coast, under F. T. Gregory. He accepted the flattering offer, but the Governor prevailed upon him to resign, and remain at his post in the Public Service. During the next few years he paid close attention to his work, and his reward came in 1865, when he was gazetted acting chief clerk in his office. In the following year he was permanently raised to the office of chief clerk. With this position he was Registrar General, Registrar of Titles, and Registrar of Deeds in Western Australia. From December, 1872, to July, 1873, he was Acting Colonial Secretary, and from July, 1875, to August, 1877, and January, 1878, to January, 1880, he was Acting Colonial Treasurer, with a seat in the Executive Council, the chief official body in the colony. In 1878 he was gazetted a Justice of the Peace, and in 1880 he was permanently appointed Assistant Colonial Secretary, and in the same year, and also in 1883, acted as Colonial Secretary.

It was in the early seventies that Colonel Phillips first connected himself with the volunteer force. He entered as a private, and proving ready and quick in all matters of drill, and after mastering the regulations and requirements, he was, in 1875, given a commission in the artillery, and later obtained a command. In 1879 he was made a staff officer. On three separate occasions Colonel Phillips has been Acting Commandant of the Western Australian Military Forces. He resigned his staff officership on the appointment of Colonel Angelo as Commandant, but on that gentleman's retirement he was gazetted Acting Commandant. When Colonel Phillimore arrived in the colony he took up the duties, and Colonel Phillips retired as a captain on the Colonial Office list. In 1887 he succeeded Captain Smith as Commissioner of Police, and had, meanwhile, been brought into active service again in the military force. On Colonel Phillimore's retirement he was raised to the rank of Major. Major Pilkington, the aide-de-camp, was then appointed commandant. Thus, with his work as Commissioner of Police, and in the volunteer service, Colonel Phillips had little spare time. In 1880 he was appointed commandant by the Governor, but was subsequently succeeded by Colonel Fleming, an Imperial Officer. Colonel Phillips now retired from the local forces with the rank of Lieut.-Colonel, and devoted his undivided attention to the police forces.

During recent years he has been compelled to exercise all his ingenuity and ability in the control of the Western Australian police. The population has so increased, and so many new and remote communities have been established, that the police forces have had to be augmented. Colonel Phillips proved himself a master in organising ability. Notwithstanding the presence of numerous undesirable characters, who have migrated hither, like old-time bloodthirsty camp followers of victorious armies, to rob those following the victorious march, crime has not increased in proportion to the increase of population. Every centre and district is well served; the Western Australian police are a fine body of men. Colonel Phillips exercises judgment in his appointment of new members to the service, and he has cleverly placed his forces so as to secure effective administration. During his term of office he has had to conduct numerous important criminal cases for the Crown, the histories of which would supply startling matter for novels.

Colonel Phillips has been twice married; in 1869 to the second daughter of Mr. Edward Gustavus Hare, one time Superintendent of Police, and afterwards Government Resident at Albany; and on the second occasion to a daughter of the late Mr. Samuel Burges, "Tipperary," York. Colonel Phillips has a fine military presence. Whether in the Colonial Secretaryship, in the military forces, or in the control of the local police forces, he has acquitted himself with distinction, and is to be reckoned among the large number of local born public men who have placed the colony under debts of gratitude for their public services.

THE COMMISSIONER FOR POLICE. DIED THIS MORNING. 
A BRIEF ILLNESS. 
It is with extreme regret that we have to record the death of Colonel Phillips, Commissioner for Police, which occurred at about half-past ten o'clock this morning. The sad event was startlingly sudden, for only on Tuesday last Colonel Phillips was engaged with the work of his department at his office. On the following day he was confined to his room, and Dr. Harvey, and subsequently Dr. Saw, were called in. It was found that Colonel Phillips was suffering from a severe attack of pneumonia, and despite all that could be done for the sufferer, he died as stated this morning. Colonel George Braithwaite Phillips was a native of the colony, having been born in Perth in 1836. His father was the late John Randell Phillips, who came to West Australia in 1831, and entered the public service shortly afterwards. Colonel Phillips received the groundwork of his education at the Albany public school, after leaving which he received private tuition. In 1851 he secured a position in the Colonial Secretary's office, five years later he had risen to the post of second clerk, and ten years afterwards he was appointed to the office of chief clerk. At various periods from 1872 to 1880 he was acting Colonial Secretary and Acting Colonial Treasurer with a seat in the Executive Council. In 1880 he was permanently appointed Assistant Colonial Secretary. In the early seventies Colonel Phillips entered the volunteer forces of the colony as a private; in 1875 he was given a commission in the artillery, and in 1879 he was made a staff officer. On three occasions he has been Acting Commandant of the Western Australian Military Forces, and in 1880 he was appointed Commandant. Shortly afterwards, however, he retired with the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel, and devoted his undivided attention to the police forces. As Commissioner for Police Colonel Phillips has occupied a difficult and responsible office since the influx of population a few years ago, and the ability with which he has met the strain upon the resources of his department has reflected the utmost credit upon him. The deceased gentleman has been twice married, in 1869 to the second daughter of Mr. Edward G. Hare, at one time Superintendent of Police, and afterwards Government Resident at Albany, and on the second occasion to a daughter of the late Mr. Samuel Burges, of "Tipperary" York. His second wife survives him, and he also leaves two daughters.

THE LATE COLONEL PHILLIPS. THE FUNERAL. 
The remains of the late Colonel George Braithwaite Phillips, commissioner for police, were interred with military honors at the East Perth Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon. The funeral arrangements were of an elaborate character. The coffin was carried from the deceased's late residence, Yeovil, Adelaide-terrace, by four sergeants of police and four sergeants of the No. 1 Field Battery, and placed on a gun carriage drawn by six horses. The cortege soon afterwards moved off, and, as it did so, it passed through lines of police and artillerymen. Then the solemn procession was formed. An escort of Perth infantrymen, who were also the firing party, led with rifles reversed. Then followed the Headquarters Band and that of the Fremantle Infantry, which played appropriate slow marches, including the Portuguese Hymn and the Dead March in 'Saul.' The gun carriage, with the remains, followed. The coffin, was covered with the Union Jack, and among some of the wreaths were the deceased's gentleman's helmet and arms. The pall-bearers were Sir George Shenton (President of the Legislative Council), Sir James Lee Steere (Speaker of the Legislative Assembly), Sir John Forrest (Premier), Mr. J. B. Roe (sheriff), Mr. George Glyde (chief clerk in the Lands Department), and Mr. James Morrison. The chief mourners, Mrs. George B. Phillips, (widow), Mrs. Sept. Burt, and Miss Burges, followed in a mourning coach, and the others who attended on foot were Mr. Septimus Burt, Q.C., Mr. Oct. Burt, Mr. R. G. Burges, M.L.C., Mr. Arch. E. Burt, Mr. Fred. Burt, Mr. Reginald Burt, and Mr. Cecil Foss. The deceased's charger, led by two officers of police, was next in the procession. The animal was saddled, and in the stirrups were a pair of Wellington boots reversed. The police on foot, to the number of over 120, and who had been drawn from all ranks, followed in double file, and their rear was brought up by Inspectors Drewery and M'Kenna, and Sub-inspectors Hogan, Sellenger, and Back, Detective-inspector Campbell, and ex-Sergeant Buck. The plain-clothes policemen and the members of the criminal investigation branch were also largely represented. The members of the Perth Artillery, Fremantle Artillery and Infantry, and Guildford Infantry came next in that order, and they were followed by several officers of the Fremantle Gaol, Superintendent Lapsley and two officers of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade, Captain Newland, and the officers who were in command of the various corps. Among the military officers were Colonel Chippindall, the Commandant of the Western Australian forces; Major Campbell, Staff Officer; Major J. Talbot Hobbs, Major Strickland, and Major Hope. Colonel Haynes was also among the officers. This brought to an end the official procession, which was about a quarter of a mile long. The civilians who attended on foot were very numerous. Prominent among these were Mr. F. H. Piesse, Commissioner for Railways ; Mr. H. B. Lefroy, Minister of Mines; Mr. A. Forrest, M.L.A., Mayor of Perth; Mr. Justice Stone; Mr. F. B. North, undersecretary to the Premier; Mr. Alpin Thomson, under-secretary for Railways ; Mr. M. E. Jull, under-secretary for works; Mr. H. J. Saunders, M.L.C.; Mr. L. S. Eliot, under-treasurer; Mr. F.

Snook, superintendent of telegraphs; Mr. John Longmore, superintendent of charitable institutions ; Mr. Walter Gale, clerk of the Legislative Assembly ; Mr. C. Lee Steere, clerk of the Legislative Council; Mr. F. M. Stone, M.L.C. ; Mr. Le Souef ; Mr. W. E. Cooke, Government astronomer ; Mr. George Leake, M.L. A. ; Dr. E.

S. Roe, police magistrate ; and Mr. J. F. Campbell, master of the Mint. Several hundred others followed on foot, and a long line of carriages brought up the end of the mournful procession. The late Commissioner's vehicle and pair were used for the conveyance of wreaths, which were very numerous. Among the carriages which formed part of the cortege was that of the Administrator, who was represented as Administrator by Mr. Harold Wright, private secretary, and as Chief Justice bv Mr. W. K. Ainslee, associate. Mr. G. RandelL M.L.C., the Colonial Secretary, was also among those who drove. On arrival at the cemetery the coffin was borne to the church by officers of the police and the artillery. The first part of the burial service was said in St. Bartholomew's Church, and the remains were subsequently carried to their last resting-place on the eastern-side. in close continguity to the chapel, and at the foot of the grave of the late Bishop Parry. The body was interred in ground occupied by the deceased's first wife, and a daughter who died about six months ago. Bishop Riley officiated at the grave, where he was attended by Dean Goldsmith, and the Revs. D. J. Garland, C. E. Lefroy, F. J. Price. John Ellis, P. J. Davoren, W. Cutts, and Needham. At the conclusion of the service the escort fired three volleys over the grave of the dead officer, and the Headquarters Band played 'It is Well with My Soul.' The scene at the grave, around which the immediate relatives and friends were congregated, was very pathetic, and many eyes were dimmed with tears as the last rites were read. The military arrangements were carried out under the supervision of Major Campbell; while the mortuary details were entrusted to Messrs. Bowra and O'Dea. The coffin was of polished jarrah with heavy black mountings, and it bore the simple inscription - 'George Braithwaite Phillips, died March 25, 1900, aged 64 years.

B. Phillips. The long and valued services of lieutenant-Colonel Phillips in the civil service of Western Australia, extending over nearly half a century, were highly appreciated by the Government, and his high personal character was recognised and esteemed throughout the colony.

THE DEATH OF COLONEL PHILLIPS. 
MILITARY FUNERAL. 
The last tribute of respect paid yesterday to the remains of the late Colonel Phillips was solemn and imposing in its character, a fitting testimony of appreciation of the work of one who had spent his life time in the service of the public. All classes of the public were represented at the funeral, but the police and the volunteers, with whom the deceased had been most intimately associated, were most prominent. Several thousand people gathered along the route of the procession, and all bared their heads as the gun carriage which bore the coffin passed by. It was a full military funeral, and when the hour fixed for departure arrived the coffin was carried from Yeovil House, Adelaide-terrace, Perth, the late residence of the deceased. by six bearers, consisting of three sergeants of police and three of the Perth Artillery, and placed on the gun carriage. The Union Jack covered the coffin upon which also were laid the sword, helmet, and belt of the deceased officer, and several beautiful wreaths placed there by Mrs. Phillips and her two daughters. The cortege then formed, a company of the Perth Infantry, commanded by Major Strickland, and constituting rifle firing party, being in advance and carrying their arms reversed. Then came the Headquarters Band and the Fremantle Volunteer Band, which immediately preceded the gun carriage, upon which the coffin was resting, the pall bearers being Sir John Forrest, Sir Jas. Lee-Steere, Sir George Shenton, Mr. J. B. Roe, Mr. G. F. Glyde, and Mr. James Morrison. The chief mourners were the widow of the deceased, Mrs. Sep. Burt and Miss Burges, Mr. Sept. Burt, Q.C., Mr. A. S. Burt, Mr. Reginald Burt, Mr. O. Burt, Mr. Fred. Burt, Mr. Cecil Foes, and Mr. R. G. Burges, M.L.C. Immediately behind the mourners followed the deceased's charger, and then came about 120 police on foot, companies of the Perth and Fremantle Artillery, the Guildford Infantry, several warders of the Fremantle Gaol, members of the Fire Brigade, and a great many of the public on foot. Among the carriages was that of His Excellency the Administrator of the Government, containing Mr. J. B. Wright (private secretary to His Excellency) and Mr. Ainslie (the Chief Justice's associate). The Mayor also sent his carriage, with the town clerk (Mr. H. E. Petherick) as his representative. A great many other carriages also followed. When the procession, which proceeded by way of Adelaide-terrace, Bennett-street, and Forrest-avenue. reached the cemetery gates, it was met by His Lordship the Bishop of Perth, Dean Goldsmith, Rev. J. D. Garland (Bishop's chaplain), Rev. C. E. C. Lefroy, Rev. F. J. Price, Rev. John Ellis, Rev. J. P. Davoren, Rev. A. G. Cutts, and Rev. Mr. Needham, who formed a procession and led the way into the mortuary chapel, whither the coffin was also borne. The first portion of the burial service was then read, and then the coffin was carried to the grave, which is situated on the northern side of the chapel and just at the foot of the grave of Bishop Hale. The reading of the burial service was finished by His Lordship, and then the Perth Infantry fired three volleys over the grave. One by one the friends of the deceased had a last look at the coffin after it had been lowered into the grave and then turned away. Amongst those around the grave, in addition to the pall-bearers and mourners and clergy already mentioned, were; Judge Stone. the Mayor of Perth (Mr. A. Forrest, M.L.A.), Mr. E. Lea Steere (Clerk of Legislative Council). Mr. H. C. Prinsep, Mr. Frank Craig, Mr. J. F. Campbell (Master of the Mint), Mr. Spencer (Auditer General),Mr. U. F. Eliot, Mr. F. A.

It remained in a similar position to-day.

Welcome to the Wild West

Corrupt Chair Of Friends Of Israel W.A - Bob Kucera

 Rest assured that nothing had changed … just the building ..

Perth, Western Australia- 1971 – Did five “University of Western Australia’ students plot and attempt to bomb the offices of the Department of Labour – then go onto highly successful political and judicial careers?

Did a corrupt detective ( Hamburger Bob Kucura) cover p the bombing and fit up innocent people to protect the “Famous Five”?

Bob Kucera has a VERY dark past as a former Detective in the West Australian Police. He protected ultra left wing Trotskyites who tired to blow up a conscription center in St Geroges Terrace, Perth, W.A. Why? Well we're not sure but he went on to serve in the state Labor party with a few of them when Kucera entered state politics. Who were the "famous five" Kucera protected while he fitted up an innocent man for the bombing? Well none other than former federal Labor leader Kim "Bomber" Beazley - former Labor state leader, disgraced Carmen Laurence; former Labor state attorney general Jim McGinty. No! I kid you not. Watch this video as former state copper and private investigator Terence Mclernon takes you through the case and shows Bob Kucera for what he is - a corrupt piece of crap. Let us also not forget Kucera's role in fitting up the Mickelberg brothers. Now I see why Bob Kucera was made the Chair of the Friends Of Israel committee. How was that business class flight to occupied Palestine Bob? Meet any nice ladies while you were over there? I see that Ultra Left Wing Trotskyites and Israel go together. As if we never knew. Terence is a living legend. He has more dirt on WA personalities than you can poke a stick at. He has just had the largest defamation fine awarded against anyone in Australia - ever. Stay tuned for more on that with dodgy billionair miners hiding over a billion in gold at the dodgy Perth Mint - just wait for it.

International Women's Day: WA Police celebrate centenary of women in the force

This year WA Police is celebrating 100 years since women joined the force

MAP: Perth 6000

From humble beginnings, starting out with just two, women now make up 22 per cent of officers.

The first women to join the force in Perth were Helen Dugdale and Laura Chipper; they were employed as constables in 1917 when the Women's Police Unit was established.

They did not wear a uniform or undertake the same training as male officers, but from the outset they were paid the same as men of their rank.

"When they started, the criteria was that they had to be between 25 and 30 and they had to have a nursing background," Commander Jo McCabe toldABC Radio Perth.

Dugdale was a widow who previously worked at the state children's department while Chipper had been the matron of a rescue home.

"The main reason why they were there was for moral welfare of women and children, particularly young girls," Commander McCabe said.

"So they were out patrolling the street and helping with wayward girls and children."

They were expected to carry a handbag and wear a hat and gloves while they patrolled the streets and parks, and were also not allowed to marry while in the force.

"Right up until the mid 1970s, women had to resign if they wanted to marry," Commander McCabe said.

Handbags and heels on the front line

Change came for women officers in 1976, when the marriage rule was dropped.

So too was the Women's Police Unit, and for the first time women were allowed to join their male colleagues in the recruit schools and general policing rounds.

They were also issued with uniforms which included a hat, dress, handbag and heeled shoes — it was an outfit that posed some challenges.

Commander McCabe is the director of the Women in Policing centenary events planned for this year and is collecting stories from women who served in the force in the early days.

She said one woman had shared the story of making an arrest in the Perth CBD while wearing the original uniform.

"They had the handbags to keep the handcuffs in, but she had to lock the bag.

"So here she was affecting an arrest in Hay Street Mall, she had to bend down, put her handbag on the ground, unlock it, get the handcuffs out and do the arrest.

"If the offender had run off I'm not sure what she would have done."

Trousers for women were added to the uniform in the early 1980s but were initially controversial.

"One officer told me that when she first got her pants she was only allowed to wear them on night shift, she wasn't allowed to be seen in them," Commander McCabe said.

"It was just a reflection of society and the way we were back then."

A young girl enters a 'dangerous profession'

In 1984 there were 77 women police officers in Western Australia — in 2017 there is more than 1,400.

Commander McCabe joined the force in 1988.

"It was something I always wanted to do. I was at high school and one of the police officers came and gave a talk and I thought, 'what a wonderful career'.

"My family were very proud, a little bit worried I think as a young girl going into such a dangerous profession.

"But it was embraced by my family."

She has worked as a constable in Carnarvon and been a detective and overseen the service in Pilbara as superintendent.

'Men making decisions for women'

Over her 29-year career, Commander McCabe has seen huge changes for women in the force.

"I joined in 1988 as a 20-year-old, and our agency was like many others — simply reflecting the beliefs and expectations of the community.

"When I reflect back now, I realise it was men making decisions for women, so the policies were always going to reflect the entrenched values and beliefs of the times.

"We didn't have access to maternity leave or part-time [work] so we just accepted that as the norm.

"I had my first child in 1994, took three months off without pay, and on return I had to find another officer who was willing to job share with me before it was accepted.

"However, it was challenging to find someone to agree to job share because the policy restricted your time at rank and subsequently you were held back from promotion, which had a financial impact."

WA Police now offers officers maternity and paternity leave, a change she credits to the "the brave and courageous women who challenged the things that we just accepted".

Celebrating the policing pioneers

In 2015 Commander McCabe was promoted to oversee policing innovation and improvement.

"Our 100th anniversary coincides with some important initiatives about equality and opportunity we are working on for the future," she said.

"But we need to acknowledge all the groundwork that those policing pioneers laid for women over the past century.

"Somebody had to step up and rise to the challenge of forging a career path for women in the agency, and they deserve our thanks and recognition."

The WA Police centenary of women celebrations will include events in every regional district, a strong contingent of women at this year's Anzac Day march and a Women in the Police pavilion at the Perth Royal Show in September.

ISRAELI AMBASSADOR INTIMIDATES  WEST AUSTRALIAN MASONIC COURT

"The Wild Wild West Australia Cowboy Country run by the Western Australian Police Freemason Zionist Jewish Mafia who control and all the criminal gangs and networks in Perth and Western Australia selling drugs and murders etc."

Brendon O'Connell



Published on Aug 29, 2014

PLEASE FORGIVE THE LANGUAGE: The aprtment where I was staying was broken into. My laptop video editing machine had its power cord taken etc...I was not happy but after this video...I was never broken into again...well, at least as far as I can tell.

I stand out side the Masonic controlled District Court of Western Australia and spew forth a few home truths about who is in control of Western Australia.

I have total, first hand experience of how bad Western Australia is.
 

Other states have their fair share of corruption - but none are as blatant as Western Australia.

Coming soon, the giant scandal of the murder of Mite NAUMOVSKI by criminal informant Paul Nunzio STAGNO, given the "green light" by disgraced detective Carl CASSILLI.

Detective Timothy Richard PAINI failing to explain how drugs found on the plane of Jamison SANTOS went from 22kg at %80 purity to 22kg at %10 purity.Thats a nice 16kg earner for PAINI and his crew which includes detective Brandon SHORTLAND, now vice president of the West Australian police union. I heard from a good source (Tomato) that SHORTLAND was kicked out of the drug squad for frolicking naked with two hookers in the Bell Tower Pool high as a kite.

The case of SANTOS and RIZZO will be the subject of a High Court appeal on matters of "jurisdiction". State police are routinely co-opting Federal cases involving crossing of borders. Why? Because they want to keep control of the case. Because they have stolen the drugs! They are greedy and don't want to have to share with the feds - who are not that much better.

In the 1970s, the starting salary for Queensland Police was just $168 per fortnight. The pay has changed considerably, and so have the recruitment posters.

      

Queensland Police are in the midst of a recruitment drive around the state. Inspector Mark Henderson from the Longreach Police says this South Australian police poster from 1838 shows how much has changed since those early recruitment days. "They really only looked for men. They looked for men who could ride horses, they looked for men who could fight, you had to be a certain height, a certain weight, and really not a lot else went into it. Now we are obviously in a community and we represent and police a community that's multifaceted, multidimensional and multicultural." (Contributed: South Australian Police Service)

         

By the 1970s, police recruitment posters were encouraging women to apply. Inspector Henderson says recruitment has progressed over the years. "When women really first started entering the police service they did fulfil a lot of those more administrative jobs. I don't know if that was fair or I don't know if that was by choice. I certainly witnessed a lot of that occurring." (Contributed: Queensland Police service )

 

       

Diversity became more important in police recruitment posters in the 1990s. "It's essential for us to have that cultural diversity because we have situations where particularly in some cultures the death of person has to be dealt with in a different way than what is standard western culture. So a lot of those cultural issues are very difficult to understand some times for the average westerner and that cultural identity in our ranks is absolutely essential," Inspector Henderson says. (Contributed: Queensland Police Service)

Queensland Police recruitment seminars are being held all over Queensland during the next six weeks.

Inspector Henderson says there are many tests that recruits must take, but anyone can throw their hat in the ring.

"I really urge everyone, it doesn't matter if you're a farmhand on a property or lived in Longreach, or Blackall, or Winton all your life," he said.

"You might be one of those people down in Yaraka who just needs a change.

"We want people who meet the criteria and who are willing to come back and service in these areas, and the rewards are immense

Carl Salvatore Casilli pleaded guilty to one count each of communicating interception warrant information to another person, unlawful use of a computer, unlawful supply of an audiovisual recording of an interview, and 14 counts of operating a restricted access system without authorisation.

The offences occurred between 2008 and 2013.

Perth Magistrates Court heard last month that Casilli passed on the information to a female lawyer with whom he was having a personal relationship.

The prosecution argued some incidents "went beyond doing a favour for someone" and undermined ongoing police investigations, a claim disputed by defence lawyer Nick Lemmon, who said the information had not been accessed for the purpose of benefit.

Magistrate Elizabeth Woods said the most serious part of the offending was Casilli distributing an intercept warrant affidavit containing sensitive information about a case including details of informants and police methodology.

That had the potential to compromise the investigation, she said.

She said Casilli's conduct would have eroded public confidence in the security of the police information system.

Magistrate Woods noted jail time was particularly hard for ex-police officers but said a community-based order or fine was not appropriate.

"My view ... is the only way to deal with these matters is a term of imprisonment," she said.

Magistrate Woods said Casilli had to serve nine months in jail in full and also fined him $2000 for one of the offences.

Mr Lemmon had called for the former detective to be substantially fined, saying the offences occurred when Casilli was involved in and "obsessed" with the hunt for the killer of Supreme Court registrar Corryn Rayney.

Western Australian Metropolitan Cemeteries Board

Your Starting Point

To participate in the walk, download the Karrakatta Walk Trail One map here, or collect a copy from the Karrakatta Cemetery office near the main entrance. The walk is approximately two kilometres long and takes around two hours to complete.  It is possible to start, leave or re-join the walk at any stage.



The Lodge and Waiting House

nside the main gates of Karrakatta Cemetery off Railway Road are the Lodge and Waiting House. They were constructed in 1898-99 and are still in use today.

The Lodge was constructed by builder JS White for the cost of 498 pounds. Monday 24 April 1899 was fixed as opening day, and The Lodge was completed with few problems or delays, ready for the Superintendent to move in.

The Lodge has been home to a number of families and workmen at Karrakatta Cemetery. In 1993 it was moved 20 metres north to allow for the expansion of the administration offices, and restored back to the original size for use as administration and meeting areas.

The Board also planned a comfortable Waiting House for mourners to assemble while waiting for corteges to arrive. In 1905 a contract was awarded to George Temple Poole to design a suitable waiting house and public facilities at a cost of 406 pounds. The Waiting House has been modified over the years but is still used today as an assembly areas for mourners.

To start off the walk, proceed down the driveway from the Old Lodge building near the main entrance to the first gravesite.

1. Sir James Mitchell (1866-1951), Premier and Governor

Anglican BA 606B 

   

In 1905 he entered Parliament. He held the portfolio of Minister of Lands and Agriculture from 1909-1911 and played a major role in opening up the eastern wheatbelt for settlement. He encouraged new farmers with land, capital, equipment and railways. However, some were forced to abandon their farms in the droughts of 1912-1914.

Mitchell’s optimism came to the fore again while he served as National Party Premier from 1919-1924. He initiated a group settlement scheme which brought British migrants to pioneer the dairying industry in the south west. They experienced many hardships, but most shared Mitchell’s optimism and vision.

From 1933-1951 Mitchell served as Lieutenant-Governor and Governor of Western Australia. His belief in the potential of the state never wavered throughout his distinguished career.

2. Edith Dircksey Cowan (1861-1932), activist and politician 

Anglican BA 458

  
Edith Cowan was born into a York pioneering family. In 1868, when Edith was only seven years of age, her mother died giving birth to her sixth child. Edith and her older sister were sent to school in Perth. By the time she was 18, Edith had lost both parents and was married to James Cowan. The loss of both parents at a young age greatly influenced Edith and led to her commitment to protecting the vulnerable in society.

Edith and James had five children. During their married life they resided in Malcolm Street, West Perth and the beachside community of Cottesloe.


Edith Cowan was a leader of many social welfare and women’s rights organisations from the mid-1890s to her death. She is well remembered for her commitment to the Karrakatta Club, the North Fremantle District Board of Education, Children’s Protection Society, House of Mercy, Women’s Service Guild and the National Council of Women. Edith Cowan was a Justice of the Peace and a member of the bench of the Children’s Court.

During World War I, Edith Cowan worked for the Recruiting Committee, the Red Cross, and the soldiers’ welfare committees. She was awarded an O.B.E. for this work in 1920. She also joined with other women to claim the rights of full citizenship including the right to sit in Parliament. Full franchise was granted in 1920.


Edith Cowan was elected to the Legislative Assembly in 1921 as a Nationalist member for West Perth. She was the first woman member of any Australian Parliament. Her considerable experience and career in public life and committees enabled her to work effectively in Parliament. She pursued women’s interests with dignity and determination, despite the inevitable derision and opposition from male representatives in the house. In the 1924 elections, the West Perth business interests opposed her, some of her reforms were opposed by previous women supporters, and Edith Cowan was defeated.

When she died in 1932, her colleagues erected a clock tower memorial in her honour at the gates of Kings Park, a prominent location that emphasised her stature as Western Australia’s most important woman of her time. In 1991 her contribution to public service was further memorialised when the Western Australian College of Advanced Education became the fourth university in Western Australia and was re-named Edith Cowan University.

 

3.  John Hogan (1852-1900), policeman

Anglican AA 0191

Originally from England, John Hogan served in the Western Australian police force for the latter 26 years of his life. He served in Fremantle, Pinjarra and Northam and was appointed Acting Inspector on 1 July 1900. He had been partly responsible for the capture of Tom Hughes, a criminal who was notorious for his escapes from jail.

John Hogan died of apoplexy and paralysis (stroke) at Irishtown near Northam on 3 October 1900. He was one of the state’s most respected police officers and his death was reported in The West Australian
 and the Western Mail. His funeral attracted hundreds of friends and colleagues.

4.  Sir Walter Hartwell James (1863-1942), lawyer and politician

Anglican AA 104



Walter James was the son of a Perth publican. He became a lawyer and political activist. In the 1880s he was a stalwart of the Liberal Association, an organisation which aimed to create a more egalitarian society by destroying the elite clique of certain families that had ruled the colony for many decades.

Walter James was a founder of the W.A. Football Association at a time when football was the sport of the working classes. He became the spokesman of the workers during the 1890s in the Perth City Council and as MLA for East Perth. From 1894 he supported John Forrest’s programs of public works and land settlement, but insisted that “roads and bridges were not enough”. He worked in Parliament for votes for women, worker’s compensation, early shop closing, legalisation of trade unions and the establishment of an arbitration court.



He was minister without portfolio in the short-lived government of George Leake. When Leake died in 1902, Walter James had sufficient personal support to form his own government that was committed to social reform. The James government accomplished the first reforms for mental health care and the treatment of prisoners. In addition, James supported state enterprises including the establishment of state hotels. His main concern was to reduce the power of the conservative Legislative Council. Predictably, the Upper House defeated his reform proposals.


In the 1904 elections, the new Labor Party and the remainder of the Forrest Party defeated Walter James and his supporters. James resigned from Parliament and returned to his legal practice. He accepted a knighthood in 1907.

 

5.  Grace Vernon Drake-Brockman (1860-1935), heroine 

Anglican EA 11B



Grace Drake-Brockman (nee Bussell) was a member of an early settler family. The name of the south west town, “Busselton”, is derived from the family name. Grace became a young heroine at the age of 16 when, together with Aboriginal stockman Sam Isaacs, she rescued women and children from the surf off Calgardup Bay, south of Prevelly.

These people were passengers on the S.S. Georgette, which ran aground on 1 December 1876. Grace headed into the surf on horseback and together with Sam Isaacs, managed to pull a number of the shipwrecked passengers to her home, Walcliffe House, giving them food and shelter.

News of the incident spread and Grace was awarded a silver medal and a gold watch by the Royal Humane Society. It is said that the story prompted Frederick Slade Drake-Brockman to ride 300 kilometres from Perth to meet Grace. They married in 1882.

 

6.  Sir John Winthrop Hackett (1848-1916), editor, politician and University Chancellor

Anglican EA 10B

Born in Ireland, the well-educated John Winthrop Hackett boarded a ship headed for Australia in 1875. He took up journalism and contributed to the Sydney Morning Herald,The Age and Melbourne Review. Hackett moved to Western Australia in 1883. 

After briefly working on a sheep station in the Gascoyne, Hackett became a partner in The West Australian newspaper, which went on to flourish and become a daily publication with Hackett as its editor. In 1894 Hackett was elected to the Legislative Council, a seat which he held until his death. He was an advocate for women’s suffrage, and a strong supporter of Lord John Forrest’s development policy in the building of the pipeline to the Goldfields and the construction of Fremantle harbour. 

The Commonwealth’s first free university, the University of Western Australia, was founded in 1913 thanks largely to Hackett’s vision, tenacity and financial support. He became its first Chancellor. 

In 1905, Hackett married 18-year-old Deborah Vernon Drake-Brockman, daughter of heroine Grace Vernon Drake-Brockman. They had four daughters and a son, Sir John Hackett, later prominent as a General in the British Army. 

After his death, Hackett’s bequest to the university funded the establishment of scholarships and bursaries, and the construction of the Winthrop Hall and Hackett Buildings. His bequest to the Church of England paid for the building of St George’s College, the first residential college within the University of Western Australia.

7.  Alexander Forrest (1849-1901), surveyor 

Anglican EA 1

Alexander Forrest was born in Bunbury and was educated at Bishop Hale’s School in Perth. Surveying was one of the few careers open to young ambitious colonials, and Alexander and his older brother John both entered the Government Survey Department. Alexander worked as a contract surveyor and John as a permanent employee. 

In 1870 and 1874 Alexander was second-in-command to John Forrest’s expeditions that crossed the empty centre to Adelaide. In 1871 and 1875 Alexander led his own team in exploring the land “beyond Kalgoorlie and south to Esperance” and the survey in the Roebourne area. 

Of all the expeditions led by Alexander Forrest, it is the 1879 exploration of the remote north of Western Australia that is best remembered. Alexander Forrest and his party traversed the King Leopold Ranges and followed the Ord River though the region that was subsequently named the Kimberley. It took nine months instead of the expected six, and the party nearly perished. They were tormented by mosquitoes and sunstroke and were reduced to killing their horses for food as their rations ran out. Forrest’s report spoke of likely gold-bearing country at Hall’s Creek and of several million acres of good well-watered country suitable for pastoral purposes. The Kimberley soon became a much sought-after area for cattlemen and prospectors. 

Alexander Forrest invested in land holdings but from 1880 until his death in 1901 he was based in Perth as a stock agent and investment advisor. He was a member for the West Kimberley in the new parliament after responsible government in 1880 and was mayor of Perth 1893-1895 and 1898-1900. Alexander Forrest was the first chairman of trustees of the Karrakatta Cemetery Board established in 1899. 

 

8.  Lord John Forrest (1847-1918), first Premier of Western Australia

Anglican EA 22E




John Forrest was born in Bunbury in Western Australia’s south west. At 12 years of age he was sent to the Bishop's School, Perth. On leaving school in 1863 he studied surveying, and two years later found employment with the colony’s survey department. Forrest led a number of ambitious expeditions into remote parts of the state, proving himself to be a resourceful and courageous bushman. He published an account of his journeys,Explorations in Australia, in 1875. 

In 1876 Forrest was appointed deputy surveyor-general of Western Australia and in 1878-9 acted as commissioner of crown lands with a seat in the executive council. He was a dedicated proponent for the introduction of responsible government. When it was granted in 1890, he was returned unopposed as member for Bunbury in the first legislative assembly. 

He became the first Premier of Western Australia, serving in this capacity for 10 years, and was the first native-born Australian to be made a baron. 

As the Premier of Western Australia, John Forrest was responsible for the construction of Fremantle Harbour and the Goldfields Water Supply. His enthusiasm for development led to the establishment of the Transcontinental Railway. As early as 1892, his government permitted the women of Western Australia to own property and in 1899 gave them the right to vote. 

From the inauguration of the Commonwealth in 1901, John Forrest served in the Federal Parliament until his death in 1918. He was never defeated in elections. Among the many offices he occupied were Federal Treasurer and Minister of Defence. He was instrumental in creating a separate Australian currency and in unifying six individual colonial armies into one Commonwealth military force. 

John Forrest died at the age of 71 years en route to London for cancer treatment. His ship was docked off Sierra Leone on the west coast of Africa. After temporary interment in the British colony, his remains were exhumed and returned to Western Australia on the SS Dimboola

Controversy arose on the waterfront due to the fear of the influenza epidemic which swept Europe after the War. The casket was not permitted ashore by the members of the Lumpers Union, so the Government arranged for the casket to be secretly brought ashore in a small boat late at night. The state funeral took place on 7 May 1919. A motor hearse, three mourning cars, two floral cars and a decoration car were ordered. Well over 100 wreaths were received, requiring several cabs to convey them to Karrakatta Cemetery.

 

9.   Archbishop Charles Owen Riley (1854-1929), Archbishop of Perth

Anglican EA 46B



  
Charles Riley was born in England and served as a curate and vicar in various English parishes from 1878. He accepted the Bishopric of Perth in 1894 and was subsequently elevated to Archbishop of Perth in 1914. He held that position until 1929. 


Bishop Riley was warden at the University of Western Australia in 1913, and was appointed chancellor from 1916-1921. He served as chaplain of the Western Australian Defence Forces from 1895-1908 and as Chaplain-General 1908-1929. He was awarded an O.B.E in 1920.

10. Bessie Mabel Rischbieth (1874-1967), women’s rights advocate

Anglican EA 78A




Bessie Rischbieth was born in South Australia and settled in Perth after her marriage. She became involved in the social welfare and women’s rights groups that were active in the early 1900s. For many years she was either President or Vice President of the Women’s Service Guild.

Like her contemporary, Edith Cowan, Bessie Rischbieth was active in campaigns for a public hospital for women, kindergartens and for women police and justices of the peace. In 1920 she became editor of a new paper, The Dawn, published by the Women’s Service Guild. She used this paper to promote a coordinated federal women’s organisation, called the Australian Federation of Women Voters, of which she was President from 1921-1942.

In 1923 she led the first Australian delegation to the Rome Congress of the International Women’s Suffrage Alliance. She was the leader and member of many subsequent delegations to various congresses. 


Bessie Rischbieth was always a forceful and determined woman. Her leadership style was increasingly challenged after World War II, when the Federation of Women Voters was eclipsed by new feminist groups. However, she maintained her involvement in social issues to the end of her life.

 

11.   Frank Wilson (1859-1918), Premier of Western Australia 

Wesleyan AA 172C


  

rank Wilson was born in England, and migrated to Queensland in the 1880s. In 1891 he travelled across to Western Australia to take up the appointment as managing director of the Canning Jarrah Timber Company. He was a successful businessman, at various times connected with the Fremantle Gas and Coke Company, Eureka Milling Company, Perth Brick Company and Collie Coalfields Pty Ltd. 

Wilson served as a Perth City Councillor from 1896-1899 and was elected to the Legislative Assembly in 1897. He campaigned against Sir John Forrest on issues such as the proposed Coolgardie water scheme and Federation. 

Frank Wilson was voted in and out of Parliament over the next few years and finally served as a minister in the Liberal government of Newton Moore from 1905-1910. Wilson was responsible for legislation that introduced income and land taxation, and for the establishment of Perth Modern School. 

Wilson was a Liberal Premier 1910-1911 and 1916-17, when the formulation of the new Country Party presented problems to the conservative side of politics. Two achievements as Premier stand out as his most significant contributions to the State: the legislation that led to preferential voting; and the establishment of the University of Western Australia.

 

12.  John “Happy Jack” Scaddan (1876-1934), politician

Wesleyan AA 14A



ohn Scaddan spent his early years in South Australia and Victoria, where he learned to operate stationary engines in the mines. He arrived in Western Australia in 1896 to find work in the goldfields. 

He was interested in the politics of the region, and in 1904 was elected to the seat of Ivanhoe in the Legislative Assembly. Scaddan was recognised as one of Labor’s main parliamentary speakers, and it was not unknown for him to speak for up to three hours in debate. In 1910, Scaddan was elected leader of a reformist Labor government with an 18-seat majority. 

Prior to World War I, it was obvious that the gold production industry was in decline. The key to future development focused on the primary industries, namely wheat production. Scaddan saw that railways were the key to viable agricultural industries and focused the government’s efforts on expanding the state’s rail infrastructure. Between 1911 and 1916 wheat production trebled. 

Scaddan served as Premier from October 1911-July 1916. From 1919 to 1933 he changed his political parties a number of times – joining with the Liberals to form the National Party, then moving to the newly-formed Country Party before returning to the Nationals. 

Throughout his political career, he held the portfolios of railways, mines, police, industries and forests. He was a member of the six-man committee which prepared the case for secession. John Scaddan was remembered as “Happy Jack”; a jovial man of great energy. His industrious, pragmatic, humanitarian approach suited a pioneering state in need of industry and development.

 

13.  Robert John Lynn (1873-1928), businessman

Congregational AA 114B




Robert Lynn was born in Newcastle, New South Wales. He joined the gold rush to Western Australia in 1895 but failed to make his fortune in the goldfields. He moved to Fremantle and joined the shipping company, McIlwraith, McEacharn and Co. as a clerk. 

By 1906 he was able to purchase a fleet of five small ketches and schooners and formed his own company. R.J. Lynn and Co. The fleet traded along the Western Australian coastline over the next decade. 

In 1919, Lynn joined with Walter Johnson and established Johnson and Lynn Ltd. This new company bought and operated run-down coal mining leases at Collie. In 1920 Lynn and Johnson founded the Amalgamated Colleries of W.A., monopolising the coalfields’ output until 1930. 

Robert Lynn was a Fremantle councillor from 1904-1909 and patron of the East Fremantle Football Club for 17 years. He held the West Province seat in the Legislative Council from 1912- 1924. Lynn was known as a generous benefactor to many schools of various denominations.

 

14.  Henry Daglish (1866-1920), politician

Congregational AA 242

Henry Daglish was born in Ballarat, Victoria. In 1883 he joined the Victorian Public Service, where he served for the next 13 years. In 1896 he came to Western Australia, settled in Subiaco and became involved in local politics. He was a Subiaco councillor in 1900 and later served as Mayor in 1903-1904 and 1907-1908. In his capacity as Mayor, he twice served as a Trustee on the Karrakatta Cemetery Board. 

In 1901 Daglish won the Legislative Assembly seat of Subiaco for the Labor Party. By 1904 he was leader of the first Labor ministry and Premier of Western Australia. However, his premiership was marred by inexperienced ministers, problems with caucus and reliance on five independents. He resigned from the party in 1905 but retained his seat as an independent. 

Later he “drifted” into the Liberal Party and became Minister for Works in Wilson’s ministry in 1908. Though he was acknowledged as consistent and sincere, Daglish was defeated by the opposition in the 1911 election. 

Henry Daglish’s wife, Edith Daglish (nee Bishop) was awarded an O.B.E. in recognition of her welfare work with returning soldiers after World War I. The suburb of Daglish was named after Henry with perhaps some recognition also due to the community work of Edith.

 

15.  Aubrey Lawson (1915-1977), speedway rider

Presbyterian BC 116

Aubrey Lawson was born in Warialda, New South Wales. He is still regarded today as one of the best speedway riders Australia has ever produced. Although he rode in nine world finals, gaining in total 73 points (more than any other Australian) the World Title eluded him. 

Lawson achieved his best performance in 1958 when he won third place in the World Title competition. He won the Australian championship five times and represented Australia 84 times. 

After his retirement in the 1960s he promoted the sport at Westmead, New South Wales before moving to Western Australia, where he was involved in the promotion of the Speedway at Claremont.

 

 

16.  Sir Paul Meerna Caedwalla Hasluck (1905-1993), Governor-General of Australia

Presbyterian BC 424



aul Hasluck was born in Fremantle. During his illustrious career he worked as a journalist, historian, academic, writer, poet, public servant, diplomat, politician and Governor-General. 

Hasluck was a foundation member of the Royal Western Australian Historical Society. He worked for
 The West Australian and Western Mail newspapers. In 1941 he joined the Department of External Affairs and was one of Australia’s first representatives to the United Nations. 

In 1949 he was elected to Federal Parliament as the member for the new electorate of Curtin. He held several ministries in the Menzies Government, including Territories, Defence and External Affairs. Following his retirement from Parliament he was appointed Governor- General of Australia between 1969-1974. 

Paul Hasluck has been described by his biographer, R. Porter, as a man who had “prodigious, almost legendary capacity for hard work; a strong intellectual capability and penetrating and enquiring mind; a clear understanding of the definition of the roles and responsibilities of each area of government; a strong and enduring sense of duty; and a commitment to serving his country’s interests in a selfless and dedicated manner.” 

Hasluck was married to Alexandra Mary Hasluck, also a noted writer and constant supporter and companion during his long and distinguished career. She died five months after her husband.

17.  John Curtin (1885-1945), Prime Minister

Presbyterian BC 375 

John Curtin was born in Victoria. From his youth he was deeply involved in the Labor Movement. He had been a member of the Socialist Party of Victoria, a Labor journalist, trade union secretary and secretary of the anti-conscription campaign in Victoria before coming to Western Australia in 1917 as editor of the Westralian Worker. He made the Workera strongly anti-militarist, anti-capitalist paper in the early twenties. 

Between 1928-1931 Curtin was a backbencher in the Federal Parliament as the member for Fremantle. He was defeated in the 1931 elections and worked as a part-time journalist until the next elections in 1934 when he was re-elected Member of the House of Representatives for Fremantle. 

By 1935 Curtin was the Labor Party’s parliamentary leader. Following the collapse of the Menzies and Fadden Governments in 1941, John Curtin became Prime Minister of Australia. As wartime leader he was decisive and inspiring, though forced to make decisions on the introduction of overseas conscription which cost him much as a Labor man. He asserted the defence needs of Australia in the Pacific war against the demands of the war in Europe and drew Australia closer to the United States of America. John Curtin died in office just weeks before the end of the war in the Pacific.

 

18.  Edwin Begley (1870-1917), wood joiner and aircraft builder

Anglican KA 344



Edwin Begley was Australian by nationality, but died and was buried in England in 1917. The memorial placed here gives public recognition to his service during the Great War (1914-1918). 

During the war the British Government recruited experienced wood joiners from Australia to work on the construction of the Sopwith Camel aircraft in England. Edwin Begley volunteered for duty and was accepted. He travelled to England by troop ship where he worked in the Kingston on Thames Sopwith Aircraft Factory. 

Begley died in England on 6 August 1917 of illnesses associated with one of the wartime epidemics that swept England at that time. He was buried at Kingston on Thames cemetery. 

This memorial commemorates his service and sacrifice and remembers him as a native son of Australia. His grave in England is still retained with a headstone that recognises him as being from Perth, Western Australia.

 

19.  John Cowe McIntosh (1892-1921), aviator

Presbyterian CA 201A

John McIntosh was born in Lumsden, Scotland. He was the illegitimate son of a 29-year-old servant maid, Isabella Cook, and a young apprentice mason, William Cow. McIntosh was adopted as an infant into the family of James McIntosh. His adoptive parents added “e” to his name and he was registered as John Cowe McIntosh. 

Following his 17th birthday, John McIntosh left Scotland and arrived in Fremantle on the 
SS Ormuz in June 1909. When war began in 1914, McIntosh joined the 4th Field Ambulance of the Australian Imperial Force and served in Gallipoli. He was evacuated to England in 1915 and married a widow, Amelia Taylor. By the end of the war, he had reached the rank of acting second lieutenant in the Australian Flying Corp and was ready for repatriation back to Australia. 

In March 1919, the Australian Government offered 10,000 pounds for the first flight between Australia and England. Even though he could not fly, McIntosh took up the challenge with Ray Parer. They left England on 8 January 1920 and arrived in Darwin 208 days later on 2 August 1920. The record stands as the longest time taken to fly between the two countries. 

John McIntosh was killed at the age of 29 in a plane crash while participating in a display flight in the wheatbelt town of Pithara (237 kms north of Perth).

 

20.  Nathaniel White Harper (1865-1954), businessman and philanthropist

Presbyterian AA 391 

Nathaniel Harper was born in Ireland and arrived in Southern Cross in 1892 to manage Fraser’s Mine. He was an experienced mine manager and later transferred to Kanowna to manage the White Feather Main Reef, the Koh-I-Nor and the Golden Pile mines. 

By 1900 Harper had diversified from his mining interests. He was responsible for the construction of the Esplanade Hotel, an elegant red brick building with fine interior timber panelling, on the Swan River foreshore. He purchased a farm at Beverley and from 1910-1914 represented the district in the Legislative Assembly. Harper was involved with the motor car industry and in 1927, in partnership with W. J. Winterbottom, established the Winterbottom Motor Company. 

From 1910 until his death in 1954, Harper fought with great tenacity to acquire public acknowledgement that he had been the driving force behind Sir John Forrest on the feasibility of the Coolgardie water supply scheme. Harper was a generous man, and in 1947 he established a foundation for the Nathaniel Harper homes for mentally retarded children at Guildford and Bassendean.

 

21.  Annie Dorrington (1866-1926), artist and Australian flag designer

Anglican MA 524

Annie Dorrington immortalised her name in history in 1901, the year of Federation, when she shared first prize with four others in a world-wide competition to create a winning design of the Australian National Flag. She was the only woman and Western Australian to be bestowed this honour. 

Born in Berkshire, England, Annie migrated to Victoria in 1890. Two years later she married Charles Dorrington and in 1895 they moved to Perth. Her love of Western Australia is reflected in 124 exquisite wildflower paintings, now held by the Art Gallery of Western Australia. 

Annie died in 1926 and was buried in an unmarked grave at Karrakatta Cemetery. The grave was discovered by the Australian National Flag Association (WA) Inc. in 1998. Today, thanks to the efforts of the Association, a handsome memorial monument stands on what was previously bare sand. The grave was consecrated in 1999 by the Dean of Perth, Dr John Shepherd, to honour this remarkable and talented woman who contributed so much to Australia's heritage.

 

22.  Richard Greaves (1853-1916), gold miner

Baptist AA 160A 

Richard Greaves came from Victoria in 1887 to join the prospecting party led by B. H. (Harry) Anstey in search of gold east of Northam. They found rich quartz rock at Eeanin near Lake Deborah. 

Harry Anstey returned to Perth with gold specimens, leaving the other members of his party – Greaves, Edward Payne and their Aboriginal guide Philip – to continue the search. The prospecting party found four more small reefs before they discovered the rich reef south of Lake Deborah which Greaves named “Cordelia” after his daughter. This discovery led to the later find of gold at “Golden Valley” by Bernard Colreavey and A. Huggins. 

There was controversy over who found the first gold at Yilgarn and eventually Anstey was awarded 500 pounds. Greaves and other members were unhappy that the reward was given to Anstey and not shared amongst all members of the party. 

Greaves continued to express disappointment at the lack of monetary reward and public recognition for his participation in the discovery of gold. He recorded his story in 1903 in the publication
 The Golden West and How It Was Discovered.

 

23.  Louis Edward Shapcott (1877-1950), Public Servant

Baptist AA 79 

Louis Shapcott was born in Victoria. As a youth he worked on pastoral station properties and as a show troupe boxer. He came to Western Australia in 1897. 

Shapcott joined the Department of Mines and commenced his night school education in diverse areas such as French, elocution, chemistry, shorthand and typing. All of these skills stood him in great stead during his meteoric rise in the State Public Service. 

From 1914 until his retirement in 1941, Louis Shapcott served as Secretary to the Premier, making himself indispensable to Premiers Scaddan, Wilson, Willcock, Colebatch, Collier, Lefroy and Mitchell. It was said that “seven premiers served under Shapcott”. 

He regarded the State Gardens Board as his “personal empire”. From 1920 onwards, his influence ensured that the Perth foreshore, part of Kings Park, Yanchep Park and large areas of national parks throughout the State were placed under the control of the Board. In addition to his work, Shapcott also administered the Perth Zoo from 1932. 

He was an ambitious and strong-willed man. Driving his car to work, he would not give way and policemen learned to hold up other traffic. Some admired Shapcott, while others feared or disliked him. However, none questioned his impartial devotion to duty.

 

 24.  Rabbi David Isaac Freedman (1874-1939), educator, chaplain and statesman

Jewish Orthodox AA 19B 

David Freedman was born in Budapest, Hungary and educated in England. He migrated to Western Australia in 1897 to administer the Perth Hebrew congregation. As headmaster of the Perth Hebrew School, Rabbi Freedman stressed the value of a Hebrew education and the need to foster pride in the history and tradition of Judaism. 

Rabbi Freedman was appointed a chaplain in the Australian Imperial Forces and served in Gallipoli, Egypt and France. Throughout the war it was his policy to write home to the family of every Jewish soldier he met. On his return to Perth after the War, he served as President of the Western Australian Zionist Association and State President of the Returned Sailors’ and Soldiers’ Imperial League of Australia. 

In 1933 Rabbi Freedman accompanied the Australian delegation to the 14th Assembly of the League of Nations at Geneva and spoke on the German-Jewish question. On his return to Perth, the Rabbi spoke against the “good deal of anti-Jewish feeling in Australia”. In 1936 he was awarded the O.B.E. 

David Isaac Freedman was considered a man of energy and compassion who had his own methods of facing adversities, at times with “a direct vigour that proved him to be a man of courage”.

 

25.  Sir Charles Samuel Nathan (1870-1936), statesman

Jewish Orthodox AA 8

Charles Nathan was born in Melbourne and received his education in New Zealand. He travelled to Perth in 1894, finding employment in the engineering industry. 

Nathan was a member of the East Fremantle Municipal Council from 1902 to 1905 and was later elected Mayor of Perth in 1911. In 1911 he purchased Atkins Pty Ltd (WA), a leading mercantile and engineering enterprise. During World War I he was a member of the Trench Comforts fund, the War Loans Campaign, the YMCA and was co-founder of the State branch of the Australian Red Cross. 

During his term as Chairman of the W.A. Council of Industrial Development from 1920 to 1923, Nathan led a State trade delegation to Malaya and Java, one of the first official delegations to the area. He served as an Australian commissioner for the British Empire Exhibition for two years, and in 1926-1927 he was a “meticulous and methodical vice-chairman” of the Commonwealth Development and Migration Commission. 

Nathan was elected to the Metropolitan Suburban seat in the Legislative Council for the term 1930-1934, and was an outspoken opponent of the secession movement. He was known for his personal integrity and modesty and his political and business acumen. 

Charles Nathan was knighted in 1928 for his service to industry and the community.

 

26.  Benjamin Edward Strange (1868-1930), cartoonist

Anglican OA 49

Benjamin Strange was born in Ireland and was trained in drawing before he migrated to Western Australia in 1885. He worked as a dryblower amongst the many hopeful prospectors in the Yilgarn goldfields. Whilst prospecting, he maintained his interest in sketching, and his early humourous cartoons of the local scene were accepted by The Bulletin in Sydney. 

In 1894 he joined the staff of
 The Coolgardie Miner and The Coolgardie Pictorial. His cartoons were published in other goldfields newspapers, and by 1898 he was also employed to work for the Western Mail in Perth. 

Strange was a gentle satirist, devoted to Western Australia and to the British Empire. His favourite characters were Sir John and Alexander Forrest, Sir Walter James and John Scaddan. His sharpest cartoons were aimed at radicals and Labor politicians. A collection of his cartoons is held at History House, Armadale.

 

27.  Robert Creighton (1870-1899), wheelwright and first person to be buried at Karrakatta Cemetery 

Anglican NA 41 

Robert Creighton was born in New South Wales. It is probable that he was amongst the many thousands of young hopeful “t’othersiders” who joined the gold rush to Western Australia during the 1890s. Little is known of his life. 

He was employed as a wheelwright at Waroona by Gill McDowell Timber Company. His “claim to fame” rests in his death. Creighton died of typhoid fever at Perth Hospital on 23 April 1899 at the age of 29 years. His was the first burial at Karrakatta Cemetery the next day. 

It is interesting to note that the burial did not take place in the first Anglican section AA. Creighton died of an infectious disease, and the cemetery trustees were keen to attract “custom” from East Perth Cemeteries. The inscription on the grave still reads “killed at Waroona”.

 

28.  Group Capt. Sir Norman Brearley (1891-1989), aviator

Ground Niche VC A 81

Norman Brearley was born in Geelong, Victoria and arrived in WA with his parents in 1906. He served in the Royal Flying Corps during World War I. Brearley survived when his aircraft was shot down over France. His war service was recognised by the awards of DSO, MC and AFC. 

He returned to Perth after the War with two war surplus Avro bi-planes, with which he commenced his civil aviation career. Brearley gave public demonstrations of flying, together with stunt exhibitions using the WA Cricket Association ground and Langley Park as an aerodrome. He further enthralled the public by offering joyrides above Perth and country towns. 

Brearley received the first commercial pilot licence issued from the Federal Government in 1921. That year he won the tender for an airmail and passenger service between Geraldton and Derby. This marked the founding of WA Airways, a fledgling airline initially equipped with a fleet of six converted Bristol fighters. 

Charles Kingsford-Smith was one of the early pilots who worked with Brearley. Kingsford-Smith later achieved fame for his record-breaking flights. 

In 1924 Brearley extended his service to Perth and to Adelaide in 1929. He subsequently sold the company to Australian National Airways in 1936. During World War II Norman Brearley served as a commanding officer in the No.4 Flying School in Geraldton.

 

29.  Sir Charles Henry Gairdner (1898-1983), soldier and Governor of Western Australia

Memorial Wall MCF 39 

Born in Batavia, Charles Gairdner was educated at Repton College in England, and the Royal Military Academy. He married the Hon. Evelyn Constance Handcock, daughter of the 5th Lord Castlemain, in 1925. He was commissioned 2nd Lieutenant H.M. Land Forces in May 1916, and was wounded while serving in France and Flanders. 

Gairdner was at Staff College 1933-1934, and commanded the 10th Royal Hussars 1937-40. His military service during the Second World War was meritorious. He was GSO 17th Armoured Division 1940; GOC 6th Armoured Division 1941; Director of Plans Middle East 1941; GOC 8th Armoured Division 1942; Chief of General Staff North Africa 1943; Director of Armoured Corps India 1944. He was the personal representative of Prime Minister Winston Churchill (U.K.) to the Philippines and Japan 1945-1948. He was awarded the American Medal of Freedom in 1948. 

Gairdner’s distinguished military career was rewarded by his appointment as Governor of Western Australia 1951-1963, and Governor of Tasmania 1963-1968. The Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital was named in his honour in 1963. Governor Sir Charles Gairdner was also noted for his fine knitting, and his yacht at the Royal Perth Yacht Club named the “
Aileen Ogg” (“the sick pig”).

 

30.  Eliza Tracey (1842-1917), soapbox orator

Anglican NC 176

Eliza Tracey arrived in the colony in 1859 and married James Tracey, an illiterate labourer and ex-convict. They were often in trouble over non-payment of debts. For the remainder of her life Eliza Tracey contested law suits, petitioned parliament for redress and continued a vendetta against the legal fraternity. 

Eliza Tracey was a public figure, well known for her soapbox oratory on the Esplanade most Sundays. She harangued the citizens of Perth about thieving lawyers and the topical issues of the day.

 

 

 

31.  Sir David Brand (1912–1979) Premier of Western Australia

Memorial Garden IC BJ 0008

Sir David Brand was born in Dongara to a farming family. He left school at age 14 to help the family run the farm. Following the outbreak of World War 2, Brand enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force in 1939, fighting in North Africa. When he was seriously wounded in 1941 he returned to Australia for further treatment. He was discharged as medically unfit in 1942. 

In 1945, Brand became the first member of the newly-formed Liberal Party to be elected to an Australian Parliament and served as a Member of the Legislative Assembly from 1945-1975. He was the 19th and longest serving Premier of Western Australia, serving four terms from the 1959-1971 elections. 

Brand presided over one of the most prosperous periods of development in Western Australia’s history, governing during the mining-pastoral boom of the 1960s. He oversaw the expansion of mining in the Pilbara and the development of a major iron export industry, the establishment of a refinery at the new Kwinana industrial area and funding for the Ord River dam in the Kimberley region. 

Brand resigned as Liberal Party Leader in 1973 and retired from politics in 1975, four years before his passing. In 1984 the Federal Division of Brand was named in his honour, as well as Brand Highway, the Sir David Brand Primary School in Coolbinia and the Sir David Brand Award and Medal for Tourism.

 

32.  Sr Katherine Clutterbuck (1861-1946), “mother” to orphaned children

Anglican FC 309A 

In response to a plea for assistance from Bishop Parry, Sister Kate Clutterbuck brought a group of Kilburn Sisters of the Church of England to Perth in 1901, together with 22 English orphans. The sisters’ goals were to establish a school and, more importantly, a home for infant waifs who would otherwise be abandoned to the often neglectful care of baby farms. 

In 1903, the Waifs’ Home at Parkerville was established in a leaky barn in the hills outside of Perth. By 1905 there were 45 children, mainly homeless babies in the care of the sisters. The philanthropist, Walter Padbury, was generous in providing a new stone building for a nursery, 120 acres of land, an orchard and a horse and carriage. The children lived in separate cottages, each in the care of a house mother to provide some semblance of a family environment. 

During her years as the central figure at Parkerville Children’s Home, Sister Kate was “mother” to over 800 girls and boys. When the management committee decided it was time for her to retire in 1933, Sister Kate, then 72 years of age, set up a home in the city for part-Aboriginal children. Known as “Sister Kate’s”, the home provided, with generous outside support, cottage homes and schooling for over 100 children. Sister Kate continued to work at the Home for another 13 years until shortly before her death in 1946.

 

33.  Joseph “Tom Collins” Furphy (1843-1912), writer

Anglican DA 281A 

Joseph Furphy was born at Yarra Glen, Victoria. He was the second son of Irish immigrants Samuel and Judith Furphy. Furphy completed his formal education in 1857 and became a “jack of all trades”, working at various jobs including farm labourer, mechanic, gold prospector, and owner-operator of agricultural machinery and farmer. 

During these years he began writing, winning his first prize for poetry in 1867. In that same year he married Leonie Celina Germain and became the licensee of the Vineyard Hotel, Daylesford. During the 1870s he moved to various towns in Victoria, and eventually settled in Hay where he established a long-distance carrier business. However, drought and illness ensured business failure. 

It was during the 1880s that Joseph Furphy became attracted to socialist principles and began his longtime relationship with Kate Baker, twenty years his junior. In the 1890s he wrote
 Such is Life under the pseudonym "Tom Collins", but amendments to the original manuscript were not completed for some years and the book was eventually published in 1903. 

In 1905 Joseph and Leonie Furphy moved to Swanbourne, Western Australia to live close to their children. To support his family he worked as a handyman, while continuing to write short stories and poetry. He died on 13 September 1912 of a cerebral haemorrhage. 

His success as a writer was posthumous. His book and other writings became popular in the 1930s and 1940s, and can be attributed to the determination of Kate Baker to ensure his work was not forgotten. His cottage in Servetus Street, Swanbourne, has been the centre for WA writers for many years. It has been relocated to nearby Allen Park, Swanbourne, to save it from demolition when the West Coast Highway was widened.

 

34.  John Hole Duffield (1797-1859), builder and publican

Anglican FC 93 

John Duffield sailed from England at the age of 33, arriving in Fremantle on the Warrior in March 1830. He was joined by his wife, Charlotte, and four children in December 1831. 

Duffield received considerable grants of land from the colonial authorities, including 500 acres at Bicton and 926 acres in the Murray district. He later owned 2,640 acres at Harvey and over the years purchased several lots in the Fremantle district. 

John Duffield was an energetic and resourceful man who worked as a building contractor, carpenter and cooper. He was the proprietor of the Albion Hotel where he developed his talents as brewer and winemaker. 

John Duffield died in April 1859 and was interred in the Alma Street cemetery Fremantle. He was later exhumed and transferred to the Skinner Street cemetery until his headstone was transferred to Karrakatta.

 

35.  Sir Walter Murdoch (1874-1970), journalist and activist

Anglican Lawn 2 41C

Scottish born Walter Murdoch migrated with his family to Victoria in 1884. As a young man, Walter Murdoch worked as a school teacher, then as a lecturer in English at Melbourne University. At the same time he made a name for himself as a literary journalist. He used the pen name ‘Elzevir’ when he wrote for The Argus

From 1913 to 1939 Murdoch was the foundation professor of English at the University of Western Australia, and was recognised as an enthusiast for the great works of English literature. During his years at the University, he became a West Australian institution, writing regularly for
 The West Australian newspaper and broadcasting on radio. He was also known for his involvement in community organisations such as the League of Nations, the Social Credit movement and in public controversies concerned with freedom of speech. All of these causes he referred to as “the pink man’s burdens”. 

Walter Murdoch gained a devoted Australia-wide audience through his newspaper columns and the publication of his newspaper essays in book form. From the end of World War II in 1945 to 1964 he wrote a syndicated weekly column, called “Answers”, in which he offered opinions of “a very ordinary stay-at-home Australian who has read a little, thought a little, but whose ignorance is varied and extensive”. 

The “Answers” column endeared him to the public even more, and he was considered an integral part of Western Australian life. Walter Murdoch was knighted for his services in 1964, and in 1970, shortly before his death, the second university planned for this state was named Murdoch University in his honour.

 

36.  Henry “Harry” Boan (1860 -1941), retailer

Anglican Lawn 1 A1 

Henry “Harry” Boan was born into a poor but secure Jewish family in Dunolly, Victoria in 1860. Drifting from job to job in his youth, including posts in mercantile houses such asDavid Jones’s, Harry was often penniless. 

Harry and his brother Benjamin moved to Perth in 1895 and using borrowed money purchased a site on the edge of the city opposite the Perth railway station. Together they opened a single-storey emporium called 
Boans Bros, which was to go on to become the iconic Perth department store Boans for almost the next century. The Boans store was credited with encouraging local enterprise by specially promoting Western Australian goods and with growth to the business in the 1930s became the largest private employer in the state. Boans department store eventually closed its doors in 1986. 

Harry Boan was elected to the Legislative Council in 1917, and again in 1922. However, his real passion lay in horse-racing which brought him many trophies after he established a successful racing stud. Boan took a close interest in the Perth Children’s Hospital, serving as President of the board and making frequent generous donations

 

37.  John Francis Connelly (1860-1928), prospector

Anglican Lawn 1 E2 

Originally from Victoria, John Connelly became a prospector and mine owner in New South Wales. He discovered a platinum field at
 Fifield and joined the Cossack goldrush in 1889. Connelly was responsible for the discovery of the Nannine gold find in 1890, for which he received a reward of five hundred pounds. 

Connelly continued his prospecting in New Guinea and New Zealand, but did not prosper as he had in Australia.

Pay dirt- From the Pilbara to the Bowen Basin, sex workers are doing brisk business

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/life/weekend-australian-magazine/pay-dirt/news-story/42ee1f51a45159854d5e919a55b8ff30


From the Pilbara to the Bowen Basin, sex workers are doing brisk business - and they won't take any threats to their livelihood lying down.

CAROLINE OVERINGTON The Australian 1June 30, 2012

IT is 6pm on a Thursday in the West Australian mining town of Karratha and Vicki, the madam at the local brothel, is just back from picking up a young blonde from the airport.

"Angel" is carrying her dinner, a whole roast chicken in a plastic bag, and she's got an air of anticipation about her, much like a young woman about to go on a backpacking holiday. "It's my first time in Karratha," she says after we've been introduced, "but I hope the rumours are true!" And what rumours would they be? "I heard there's plenty of men and they've got plenty of money, they're short of female company and they want to party."

Angel is a FIFO (fly-in, fly-out) prostitute, one of hundreds to descend upon Australia's roaring mining towns - from the Pilbara in the West to the Bowen Basin in central Queensland. From a purely mercantile point of view she has a lot in common with her clients: she lives in one of the eastern states but she's flexible about where she'll work; she's willing to put in long, hard shifts (sex workers can see between 10 and 12 men a night) and she expects to be well rewarded for her efforts. FIFO prostitutes routinely make as much as $10,000 a week, 10 times the average weekly wage.

Angel is here for seven nights' work in Karratha's little brothel called the Port of Call, a three-bedroom, brick-clad building on the local industrial estate, but most FIFO prostitutes prefer to work privately, booking their own rooms in 1970s-style mum-and-dad motels. It might not be everyone's idea of a proper job, but many of the women interviewed for this story were firmly of the view that since prostitution is now either largely legal in Queensland or officially tolerated in WA, touring the boom towns is a perfectly legitimate way to get a slice of the mining pie. But perhaps not for long. A bill before the WA parliament will make most forms of FIFO sex work illegal, while in Queensland, motel owners are pressing the state government for a law that would enable them to ban FIFO sex workers from working at their premises.

Asked what she thinks of this, Angel, 24, a full-time sex worker and stripper, shrugs and says, "Well, some people are busybodies, aren't they? They think their morals are better than mine." She'd be happy to talk more but it's 7pm, the brothel is open and a young miner, still in overalls and steel-capped boots, comes bounding in the door. Angel's first night riding the mining boom has officially begun.

"MEN go to the mines hoping to make money. Women go for the same reason," says University of New England professor John Scott, who has been studying the sex industry for years. "It's part of the frontier tradition. You get a lot of hard-working men, fortunes being made, buildings going up everywhere, bars opening - and prostitutes turn up, hoping to get a piece of the action." It happened during the California gold rush, and in Texas, which had as many girls-in-garters as it did oil rigs. Kalgoorlie in Western Australia was as famous in the late 1800s for its "starting stalls" (corrugated iron sheds, much like old dunnies, where girls offered quickies - they're still there, but they are now more of a tourist attraction) as it was for the mining Super Pit.

The difference now is that sex workers - like miners - don't actually have to move to the mining towns to ply their trade: they can go FIFO. "If you're a sex worker and you've got an ad on the internet or in the local paper and you've got a mobile phone, you're good to go," says Scott, "although it's 'good luck finding a hotel room'."

Sydney-based prostitute "Sweet Jade" - all the names in this story are what one sex worker described as "fake, cheesy, hooker names" - explains how it works: she flew to Perth last month ahead of a two-week tour of the west coast from Albany to Broome with stops in Karratha, Port Hedland and Dampier, all of which have mining camps full of men who are loaded with cash. "It's really quiet in Sydney and Melbourne at the moment but the mining towns are great," Sweet Jade says. "There's heaps of guys, they've got a heap of money, and you won't believe how much they spend. They'll pay for two girls; they'll pay for their mates. They've just come in from four weeks on and what's $600 when they've got $12,000 in the bank?"

"Rebecca" has been a sex worker for 16 years. Now in her mid-30s, she has worked in most of the regional areas, including the mining towns, and agrees that it's lucrative. "But the way I see it, the community also benefits. The motel owner gets a booking. The client might bring a nice bottle of champagne, so that's money for the bottle shop. There are taxis for me to get in from the airport, and for clients to visit me. The newspaper benefits from the ads. The only down side is the cost of accommodation. I once booked a room in Moranbah [central Queensland] and I could have stayed in a suite at the Hilton for what they charged me. I can claim it against my taxes, but still."

Rebecca might see fly-in, fly-out sex work as a "win-win" for the towns but not everyone is so happy with the arrangement. Police in Roxby Downs in South Australia have been called to respond to complaints about Asian women putting "hot Asian massage" flyers on the windscreens of cars parked at BHP Billiton's Olympic Dam village. There have been similar complaints about sex workers "targeting" FIFO mining workers at regional airports. One newspaper reported that sex workers were attempting to take miners to hotels or brothels immediately after they stepped off the plane. Locals in Mackay were dismayed to find hand-made cardboard signs advertising the arrival of a FIFO prostitute on a chain-link fence on the airport drive (it was swiftly taken down), and in pretty much every mining town there are rumours about prostitutes working from shipping containers on the industrial estates or from the backs of vans because accommodation is in such short supply. They all amount to nuisance complaints and, while the arrival of the FIFO prostitute has excited moral panic in some quarters, a policeman in Karratha said they didn't tend to cause trouble. "There are a few working girls coming through. They don't cause much trouble, and the customers don't either. It's all pretty low key."

Medical bodies in Western Australia and Queensland have raised concerns about the growing rate of sexually transmitted diseases - gonorrhea and syphilis - in some mining areas. But Australian Medical Association Queensland president Dr Richard Kidd is reluctant to blame Australian sex workers. "The local industry is well regulated and they do great education - 'if the condom's not on, it's not on', that kind of thing - and so it's more likely to be blokes earning good money, flying to Thailand, getting drunk on the weekend, picking up something pretty serious, and then bringing it home." Sometimes, he says, they then pass it on to their wives or partners.

However, mining wife Alicia Ranford, who created the popular Mining Family Matters website, says the idea that husbands and fathers "start playing up and going wild" when they arrive in mining towns is offensive to hard-working family men. "I'm sure there are some guys who visit sex workers but miners always seem to get a bad rap," she says, "I can tell you that nobody has ever been on our forum - and we get hundreds of comments every day - saying sex workers are luring their husbands away or anything like that. Mining families worry about other things - how to settle the kids in new schools, and how to make friends in a new town, or how to handle the resentment when Mum is at home folding the washing and trying to get the kids to sleep while Dad is away every fortnight."

Which all raises the question - if the local sex worker industry causes so few problems, why are WA authorities moving to clamp down on it? WA Independent MP Janet Woollard says that most prostitutes are in the industry "against their will or better judgment" and she is campaigning to "put an end to all prostitution in Western Australia, full stop" on the grounds that "brothels exploit young women and young girls, and encourage trafficking". She believes most people are opposed to prostitution. "If you asked mothers if they wanted their daughters to be involved in this kind of work, they would say no."

The Liberal-National government came to power in WA promising to pass a bill giving police more power to prosecute prostitutes in all areas. It will hit FIFO prostitutes hardest: all sex workers will have to be registered with "a relevant authority" and will be able to work only from licensed premises, meaning they won't be able to travel to remote towns and work from motels. There will be strict protocols around advertising in local newspapers - no advertising will be allowed by anyone who doesn't give their real name to the licensing authority - and police will be able to enter any premises to issue on-the-spot fines for both prostitute and client for whatever offences "they reasonably suspect of occurring".

The bill was introduced by WA attorney general Christian Porter just weeks before he quit his post recently to try his luck in the federal sphere, but Woollard still hopes to see it pass later this year during a conscience vote. "The idea that these sorts of things are going on unregulated, it isn't right," she says.

There is an argument that changes to the WA law may well normalise the profession: prostitutes will be licensed and registered like plumbers or accountants; they'll have to work from areas where their business is approved; they'll need ABNs and tax file numbers, and so they'll be no different from anyone else.

But Max Taylor, the director of the Magenta service for sex workers in Perth, says the registration system won't work "because sex workers won't register. You get a small legal industry and a much larger illegal industry, with all the corruption associated with that. I don't honestly understand it. History tells us that a pragmatic approach is best - what is the point of making criminals of people?" Taylor says sex workers are often desperate to avoid rather than make trouble. "The idea that sex workers cause trouble wherever they go - it's been proven again and again to be false," she says. "You hear people saying, 'They're all Asian, they look like they're underage, they're working illegally, they've probably been trafficked' but in my view, making prostitution illegal won't stop people from trafficking, and won't stop child prostitution. Both of those things are already illegal."

The prospect of new laws horrifies Angel. "I basically love what I do," she says, slipping one foot into her stiletto at the brothel in Karratha, "but I wouldn't want my Mum to know about it."

MORANBAH, 195km west of Mackay, was built to serve the Peak Downs coal mine, which has an enormous FIFO workforce. Peter Finlay is president of the local traders' association and a telecommunications expert, and he knows for a fact that sex workers have toured his town. "I've served one," he says, laughing. "It must have been in the early 1990s. She'd put an ad in the paper but she had an Optus phone and Optus didn't work up here then, so the phone wasn't ringing and she wasn't getting any business, so we switched her over to Telstra and she was so happy she gave me a $20 tip. My wife was standing right next to me, and we like to joke about it: I might be the only person who ever got a tip from a sex worker!"

It was a light-hearted moment, but sex workers have caused trouble in this town for at least one local industry: motel owners. "Karlaa" is based on the Gold Coast but tours Queensland mining towns. She advertises her arrival in the local newspaper - "Fun, Sassy, Full of Energy!" - and texts her "regulars" to let them know when she's due to land. She books a room at whatever local motel is offering a decent rate - a difficult task, given the shortage of accommodation and high prices charged by many establishments. "I'll see six or seven clients before midnight and then it tends to drop away," she says, "but there's usually work in the early morning, after the miners have come off shift, or when executives are on their way to work, and I don't mind that. From my point of view, I'm not in town to be in bed sleeping."

Most of her clients are "in-calls" as opposed to "out-calls" because "when it is miners you are seeing, they live in the camps, four and five to a room, and I can't go there." One of the towns that Karlaa most likes to visit is Moranbah. By her own reckoning she's stayed at every one of its six motels but preferred the Drover's Rest, where she stayed 17 times in two years until June 29, 2010 - when the rug was abruptly pulled from under her business.

According to Karlaa, that day started like any other: she saw a few early morning clients and then "cleaned the room thoroughly. I don't want to give anyone an excuse to throw me out." Shortly before 10am she went to settle her account but, according to documents lodged with the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal, she got a frosty reception. "The owner, Joan Hartley, she told me next time I came to Moranbah I'd have to stay somewhere else," Karlaa says. "When I asked her, 'Why's that?' she said, 'We think you're a sex worker' and the way she said it, she was judging me. She gave me the impression that what I do, it's disgusting, it's filth; it was 'we don't want that in our backyard'."

Karlaa says she told Hartley she was being "discriminated against on the basis of lawful sexual activity", to which Hartley responded, "So sue me". So Karlaa did. She lodged a complaint with the tribunal, saying she was "asked unnecessary questions about being a sex worker and that she was overcharged because of her status as a sex worker". But her complaint was dismissed last October on what might be called a technicality: the Drover's Rest motel is licensed to serve alcohol and under the terms of Queensland's Liquor Act the owners aren't allowed to let people run businesses from the rooms. Karlaa has appealed on the grounds that many people use the telephone or the internet for business while staying in a motel room, and that using the bed can't be that different. The appeal is due to be held next month.

Karlaa admits she was surprised when the Hartleys let the matter go all the way to court since she'd already extracted an out-of-court settlement from another motel on the same grounds - discrimination. But she was confident of victory, saying: "To me it was black and white. I had stayed at that motel 17 times in two years when they did not know what I was doing, and as soon as they found out, I was banned. They never knew what I was doing, because I'm discreet. The only reason they figured it out was because on this occasion I had a room right opposite the reception and they saw a man coming and going."

Joan Hartley, who runs the motel with her husband, Evan, did not want to comment for this story but her barrister, the Brisbane-based David Edwards, said the couple had long suspected that Karlaa was a prostitute but weren't sure what to do about it. When she launched the action they decided to fight "because it's an important issue. To be clear: they are not saying 'we do not want sex workers in our motel' but they are saying 'you cannot do sex work on the premises'."

Richard Munro, CEO of the Accommodation Association of Australia, says the industry was delighted when Karlaa's complaint was dismissed at the first hearing and dismayed when she decided to appeal. "There's quite a bit hanging on this," he says. "If the Hartleys win - and we think they should - all motel owners would be allowed to ban sex workers from doing business in their rooms" - which would be likely to put an end to the FIFO sex industry in Queensland. "And if they lose, we think the Queensland government is going to have to change the law because you can't have a situation like we've got now, where they can turn up and demand to be allowed to use a room to run their business."

Karlaa says she's no different from any other worker who turns up to stay at a motel "and uses the phone to make a business call, except in my case, I use the bed". She is determined to fight on, and has collected $4700 from other prostitutes for the ongoing legal battle. "It's wrong, what they are doing. Some people have said to me, 'No, you're wrong, because they can have whoever they want in their motel' but no, if you are offering to provide a service, you are not allowed to discriminate. You can't say, 'I won't have this type of person'."

If the Accommodation Association is watching the case closely, so are sex workers. "As far as I'm concerned, it's an important test case," says Rebecca. "Sex work is completely legal in Queensland and they are trying to use a loophole to make sure we can't do it in motels. They say it's because they don't want us working in the motel but it's not the work, it's the sex that bothers them."

THE people most likely to benefit from changes to laws that make sex touring illegal in WA or more difficult in Queensland are brothel owners, of whom Mary-Anne Kenworthy is perhaps the best known. She's busty and brassy and although she used to be a working girl, she's now the owner of Langtrees brothel in suburban Perth and the most famous madam in all of Western Australia. When asked for her opinion on the Prostitution Bill, she says she's opposed on the grounds of freedom. "Seventy per cent of my girls are touring girls," Kenworthy says, "they don't like to work in their own backyard, and Western Australia is going off. They can make a lot of money, so over they come from the eastern states. But I can't accommodate all of them. And some don't want to do brothel work. They want to work for themselves. Why shouldn't they be allowed? Why should they have to register, giving their own name, their ID? People ask me what I think of politicians meddling in this and I think it should bloody well be illegal for them to vote on something they know nothing about."

Lest anyone think that WA's planned new law will come down only on the workers, Kenworthy sets up an interview with a frequent client of sex workers, Mr L. He's a FIFO miner who regularly sees one "special lady" - they've taken trips together to Bali and even to Sydney for a few days - "but once the law comes in, she'll be illegal, and she could go to jail, and her clients could potentially go to jail. But sex is natural, and they should take the morality out of it. The majority of people don't go to church. Why should we have to live by rules made by churchgoing people?"

Sydney-based "Miss Holly", who is a stripper, a swinger, and a sex worker, agrees, saying: "People get hung up about sex, when there's nothing to get hung up about." She travelled to Karratha late last year to work FIFO from a room at the Port of Call. "They took $30 for the room, which is reasonable, and half of what I made for basic sex, and I was allowed to keep the rest plus whatever extras for 'special services'," she says. "There were all these mining guys ... the rates are high, and you're really busy, basically." Miss Holly doesn't generally keep a record of her clients but she thinks she saw "between five and 10" men on her first night at the brothel "and every time I've gone up there I've made, like, $6000 in a week."

The experience was similar for Angel, the sex worker newly arrived at Karratha. She'd started work at 7pm on that first night at the Port of Call and kept going for nearly 10 hours, and so it went for the rest of the week. It was "really fun, and really busy. It was refreshing being out of the city. The place had a really nice, warm feel, not like the brothels in Sydney." She did not say exactly how much she had made during her seven nights riding the boom - but it was enough for her to say that she'll definitely be back.



Prostitute tells of clean up after killing

"Body in the bin" murder victim Beau Davies."Body in the bin" murder victim Beau Davies.

A prostitute who lived in the Boulder house where "body in the bin" murder victim Beau Davies was allegedly dismembered has given a graphic account of how she helped clean up the gruesome crime scene, including scrubbing clean one of the men accused of the murder.

Steven Roberts, 50, Stephen Gandy, 40, Christian Gomis, 30, and Jayden Kett, 26, all deny murdering Mr Davies, whose body parts were found in a wheelie bin last February.

Mr Davies was bound with cable ties in his own lounge room, before being battered around the head with an axe handle or an iron bar, stabbed repeatedly by either a knife and a sword, and had his right ring finger cut off.

As he bled to death, he was stuffed into a canvas bag and driven to Mr Roberts’ home, where he was chopped into eight pieces.

Simone Kearsley said she returned to Mr Roberts' home on the night of the killing to find Mr Gandy covered in blood, holding an angle grinder.

Ms Kearsley told the Supreme Court in Perth she feared for her own safety, so put on rubber gloves and began cleaning the bathroom where she found pieces of flesh and part of Mr Davies' scalp near a pair of secateurs.

As the cleanup continued, Ms Kearsley used bleach to scrub dried blood from Mr Roberts' body.

The next day she contacted police, who found Mr Davies' remains still at the house.

Sex workers say WA's prostitution laws are making life tough

Sex workers say WA's prostitution laws are making life tough

Erin Parke

Updated 

MAP: Karratha 6714

Angela is a working woman in a place where only the tough survive.

She runs her own business in Karratha, a lucrative part of the world, where high paid workers and few available women means there are ample customers.

Angela is a prostitute.... and she says Western Australia's muddled prostitution laws are a continuing problem for her profession.

She speaks with real concern for the working girls of the North-West.

"No one can tell us exactly what we can and can't (do), and it makes it very hard," she says.

"For example, if something happens to us when we go out to a client, what do we have the right to do? I don't even know if we're able to go to the police and say, this guy is like this or like that."

The petite, university-educated woman is one of more than 20 prostitutes working in Karratha.

She says the sex industry is booming in the north and most of the new recruits arrive fresh from interstate or overseas.

What they are faced with, she says, is a bewildering gulf between what is legal and what is enforced, which leaves them vulnerable to assaults and theft.

Grey area

As it stands, the Prostitution Act makes a range of practices illegal, such as soliciting sex in public, or involving children.

The Government says this is consistently policed.

However, the grey area relates to Section 190 of the Criminal Code, which makes it illegal for a person live off the profits of sex work or manage a brothel.

Police tend to turn a blind eye to flagrant breaches, unless there is evidence of more serious offences such as under-age girls, drug-dealing, organised crime links or human trafficking.

The Opposition's law and order spokesman John Quigley says the Government is choosing to ignore the issue of prostitution because it is unpalatable with voters.

"Premier Barnett said within the first 100 days (of Government) he would have this mess cleaned up," he says.

"After 18 months, the Liberals have not brought in anything or even outlined to the community what they propose to do.

"There are big, well-established brothels, full of overseas Asian workers operating cheek-to-jowl, right next door to residences at the moment and it is totally unacceptable."

In 2008, the Carpenter Government passed legislation that effectively decriminalised prostitution and permitted one or two person operations in residential areas.

But, the laws were allowed to lapse by the Barnett Government which was concerned about the proliferation of seedy establishments in suburban areas.

Attorney General Christian Porter acknowledges the situation needs to change.

"It's certainly not a perfect situation, which is why the Liberal National Government has undertaken to bring in a new regulatory regime.

"But I wouldn't want to go so far as to say there's some sort of state of confusion. It is the same system of laws, and the same system of policing those laws, that has been in for eight years."

Mr Porter told the ABC the Government's reforms will be made public by the end of the year.

But, he says the new laws will ban prostitution in residential areas and require state and local government approval to operate in commercial and industrial parts.

"They're all really nice men"

In the meantime, Angela continues to tend to her Karratha customers, working with another woman who she says offers her a degree of protection.

But, she says she hears horror stories of girls being ripped off by greedy brothel madams who she calls 'mama-sans'.

"The mama-sans are like the agencies. They take half of what the girls earn. Which leaves not very much for the working girl," she says.

"To me, I think it is not fair. Lots of girls that come to work over here, they're not very good at reading or writing English, so they have to rely on the Mama-san."

Angela joined her profession by choice.

She's concerned about the laws surrounding it but not the work itself.

"Men in this town, they look so rough, the way they dress and the way they talk," Angela reflects.

"But I have to give them the thumbs up. They are really nice gentlemen around here and really honest."
