Today’s headlines are of Mr Patrick O’Brien who since 2007 has been trying to address Justice by confessing to perjury todays herald article . In 2008 Police hired Wellington lawyer Bruce Squire, QC, to investigate the allegations independently.
Squire was actually hired in 2004 according to the police web site to look into allegations about the Police undercover programme.
Mr Squire finished his inquiry and sent his report to the police, but would not comment on his conclusions.
He said the report was sent to police more than a year ago…
Now if this guy is having so much trouble confessing what would it be like if you tried to report Perjury or corruption… well I can tell you that you are pushing it up hill and the offender has a much better chance of taking you to court than you reporting the corrupt practices.. I know because I have tried.
And that is how new Zealand gets to be the least corrupt.. the wheels turn very very slowly , I think we are still processing 1948 .
In the intervening time the ombudsmen sit in their 10 storey building which incidentally used to be a ground floor office but now site entirely on top of the mountain of complaints, Mr Obrien’s ombudsmen’s page reflects my view of the efficiency of the ombudsmen’s office.
And in the mean time the power of the blue uniform still prevails in court , any thin a cop says is truth .
The same effect is had by having letters behind your name apparently a university degree makes you honest and trust worthy.
Imaging jack the ripper.. Now look what a few extra letters do
Jack the ripper MD .. must be a respectable mortician ,
and jack the ripper LLB well he must be a reputable lawyer who slays his opponents.
So instead of sending our criminals to prison we should send them to university or put them in a blue uniform and they will become honest and reputable citizens overnight.
Its time NZ got real make cops , lawyers and anyone else for that matter accountable to the truth.. if we cannot have truth in our courts then we cannot have justice.
But in the least ( perceived ) corrupt country in the world it is important to keep our statistics in line to preserve the pretence.
