Murder by Queensland's CMC and its officers of an unborn Child
 
Attention:
Dan Bartlet
The Crime and Misconduct Commission of Queensland in Australia (CMC) headed by John David Hallahan, Michael O'Connor, Dan Bartlet, Ian Thomas
mailbox@cmc.qld.gov.au
attorney@ministerial.qld.gov.au
media_unit@cmc.qld.gov.au

You all will  be proud of yourselves having succeeded in you wish to murder of an unborn child that one of the  CMC's  innocent victim's  was carring, before she was deliberately, callously, cowardly, wrongfully dragged into secret interrgation hearings by yourselves for no useful purpose, other than to help deliberately murder an innocent unborn child that the CMC's  innocent victim was carrying at the time.  
The CMC and its officers have stated that they were tapping the CMC's  innocent victim's phone and email for some time when they issued a notice of demand that the CMC's  innocent victim  be cross examined by the CMC at secret interrogation hearings about a subject that she simply knew nothing about, and could not be of any real assistance to what the CMC was investigating.
From listening to the CMC's  innocent victim's telephone conversations and reading her emails, the CMC and its officers clearly knew that that the CMC's  innocent victim was pregnant, when they had their corrupt police officer attend the CMC's  innocent victim's home to wrongly and falsely tell her that. in his and the CMC's oppinion, she was a criminal and was in a lot of trouble, and to serve the demand notice that the CMC's  innocent victim attend on just two days notice to the CMC, to be interrogated at secret hearings where only a high priced laywer at $1,600 a day is allowed to attend with her

A lawyer that the CMC's  innocent victim could not afford. Not many ordinary Australian can afford $1,600 a day for a lawyer to attend the CMC's secret interrogation hearings. As no one other than a lawyer is allowed to attend with an innocent victim of the CMC, the CMC's innocent voctim has no choice but to borrow the money to pay a high proceed lawyer to attend the CMC's secret interrogation hearings with them.
It is a fact that the CMC's  innocent victim spoke on her mobile phone 
(which the the CMC officers clearly admitt had been tapped by the CMC for a long time),  
on the Monday  and excitedly discussed her pregnacy.
 Then the next day, on Tuesday, with the CMC knowing full well the CMC's innocent victim was pregnant, the CMC had a corrupt police officer attend her home to serve the CMC's   demand for the CMC's  innocent victim to be interrogated, about a subject the CMC's  innocent victim knew nothing  about, and could clearly not be of any real assistance to what the CMC was investiagting.
The CMC's  innocent victim's unborn child is now dead, as a direct result of the malicious, deliberate and calculating actions of the CMC and its officers. 
Without  the wrongful actions of the CMC and its officers, that unborn child would still be alive today. The attached email warned the CMC and its officers of what they were doing was very wrong and illegal, but they continuted on this wrongful and illegal path to help murder an unborn child.
 
The INL News Group will now publish this email and information on the world wide web on as many  web sites as possible, and let the world know what these individuals and Queensland's CMC have done.

 They all should hang there head in shame for ever.

Their families, friends and associates should be absolutely ashamed of these people, and the world generally, that read this information on the world wide web, will also be horrified of this horrendous crime.
 This horrendous crime has also been sanctioned by the Queensland and Australian Governments, who has also been warned, as a copy of the attached email was also sent to the Queensland Attorney General and also the previous Liberal Attorney General of Australia, that has now been removed by the Australian people at the recent 2007 Federal Elections.
The INL News Group will also fund an application in the Internatonal Court of Justice, to have these criminals brought to justice, as there is no doubt these criminals will be protected by their mates in the Australian Courts which is run by judges who are all ex-lawyers.
The CMC is run by Australian lawyers, who also one day could become judges who would then themselves be in the powerful position to protect corrupt laywers running the CMC..
I have been brought up in Africa and have seen some horrendous wrongful things happen, but nothing I have ever seen is as horrendous as what the CMC and its officers and appointed representatives have deleiberately done here, with their involvement of the murder of an innocent unborn child.

yours truly

PATRICK OBI
Managing Editor of the INL News Group

The INL News Group note that, had the CMC's  innocent victim been the daughter of Rupert Murdoch, the most powerful person in the world today, controlling a majority of the world's mainstream media outlets, worth hundreds of billions of dollars, the Queensland's CMC would never had treated the the CMC's  innocent victim in this manner and the CMC's  innocent victim's unborn child would have still been alive today.
This is another example that there is one rule for the rich and powerful, and another rule for an ordinary  innocent victim, trying their best to live a normal and innocent life with their partner and new child due to be born, and find some basic happiness after trying to recover from a serious nervous beakdown in the last five years, which the CMC had full knowledge of, from tapping the the CMC's  innocent victim's telephone and emails for a long time

Crime and Misconduct Commission

Yes, the CMC protects corrupt police offices who live beyond their means and that can not provide any lawful evidence as to where their funds comes from, in particular large drug dealers that provide funds to support the employees of the Crime and Misconduct Commission to support our expensive life styles.. as the wages that the people of Queensland are simply not enough to pay for all our expensive life styles...


Yes, the CMC supports criminal behavour by police officers in Queensland, in fact anywhere really, as long as they have some sort of police badge we make sure they can continue their criminal behaviour without being harassed in their activities...if anyone tries to expose these criminal activities we have unlimited powers to drag them and/or their families into secret hearings that cost about $2,000 a day to pay a lawyer to attend these hearings with them, as we have made the rules such that only a lawyer can attend with the person we get our corrupt police to drag off the street on only two days notice into these secret hearings.. at the same time we are all paid large salaries by the people of Queensland and the cash we receive on the side from our corrupt police mates and other other criminal mates...


Yes, the CMC supports misconduct as long as it is misconduct by any of our criminal mates  employed in the Police Service and/or another Government Departments or other private criminals that are friends, who are prepared to offer funds to support our expensive life styles that the salaries we obtain from the Queensland Taxpayers do not cover... we specialise in supporting, protecting and encouraging the Queensland and Federal Police and others to import and sell illegal drugs and break and enter houses without a warrant to steal whole housefuls of furniture (as they did in Tallai) and steal the original manuscripts of books such as the Triumph of Truth (Who's Watching the Watchers) that was in the process of being published world wide by International News Limited in books and films and a TV series that would have brought a lot of world wide attention to our criminal behaviour of our corrupt police mates and expose our own criminal activities.. we simply had no choice but to break into that house with the help of our drug taking and selling mates and the Queensland Police, were we suspected this book could be stored.. after all we had to protect our livelihood and our business associates who provide our ability for ourselves to live beyond our means... we at the CMC of course can not be investigated as we are not going to investigate ourselves and we are the only ones with such power... we are simply untouchable and have a very protected monopoly in that regard

Paris Hilton ordered back to jail

    Paris: 'I used to act dumb'

    Paris Hilton tells Barbara Walters that the experience in jail has changed her for good. » Read story


    Paris Hilton says she will no longer "act dumb."

    The reality TV star and relentless publicity-seeker spoke with Barbara Walters by phone Sunday, a day after releasing a statement saying she hoped the media would focus on "more important things" than her 45-day jail sentence, according to ABC News' Web site. "I used to act dumb. ... That act is no longer cute," ABC quoted Hilton as saying.  After spending three days in jail in a reckless driving case, Hilton was briefly released to home confinement Thursday for an undisclosed medical condition. An outraged judge sent her back to jail Friday. She is now housed in the medical ward of a maximum-security detention center. According to ABC News, the call came after Hilton's mother, Kathy, phoned Walters. During the conversation, the 26-year-old socialite called her mom on another line, found out her mother was talking to Walters, and then called Walters collect. All jail inmates are required to call collect. Hilton has been saying that she is changed by her jailhouse experience, and she repeated that theme with Walters: "Now, I would like to make a difference. ... God has given me this new chance."

    Paris Hilton cries as she sits in the back of the police car that took her to court Friday.

    Story Highlights

    NEW: Paris Hilton led from court screaming
    NEW: Judge did not "approve the defendant being released"
    • Hilton served five days in jail before being let out Thursday

    LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- She was taken handcuffed and crying from her home. She was escorted into court disheveled, without makeup, hair askew and face red with tears. Crying out for her mother when she was ordered back to jail, Paris Hilton's cool, glamorous image evaporated Friday as she gave the impression of a little girl lost in a merciless legal system. "It's not right!" shouted the weeping Hilton. "Mom!" she called out to Kathy Hilton, who also was in tears. The 26-year-old hotel heiress tried to move toward her parents but was firmly steered away by two sheriff's deputies, who held her by each arm and hustled her from the courtroom. Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer was apparently unmoved by the pleas of Hilton's three lawyers to send her back to home confinement due to an unspecified medical condition. He ordered Hilton returned to a Los Angeles County jail to serve out the remainder of her 45-day sentence for violating probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case. (Watch the details of Hilton's releaseVideo) The judge gave no explanation for his ruling. But his comments throughout the hearing showed he was affronted by county Sheriff Lee Baca's decision to set aside his instructions and release Hilton after three days in jail to finish her time in the luxury of her Hollywood Hills home. Her lawyers said the reason for her release was an unspecified medical condition. The judge suggested that could be taken care of at jail medical facilities.

    Sheriff hints at psychological problems

    The sheriff later hinted at a news conference that Hilton had psychological problems, and said she would be watched in jail "so that there isn't anything that is harmfully done to herself by herself." Following the hearing, Hilton was taken to a correctional treatment center at the downtown Twin Towers jail for medical and psychiatric examination to determine which facility she will be held in, said sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore. "She'll be there for at least a couple of days," he said. The sheriff later defended his decision, citing jail crowding (although Hilton was in special unit and did not have a cell mate) and what he termed "severe medical problems." He said he had learned from one of her doctors that she was not taking a certain medication while previously in custody, and that her "inexplicable deterioration" puzzled county psychiatrists. (Watch Hilton enter jail the first timeVideo) Baca also charged that Hilton received a more severe sentence than the usual penalty for such a crime, but said he would not try to overrule Sauer's decision again. "The criminal justice system should not create a football out of Ms. Hilton's status," the sheriff said grimly at a press conference. (Timeline: The Hilton case) After being taken to court in a black-and-white police car, paparazzi sprinting in pursuit and helicopters broadcasting live from above, Hilton entered the courtroom weeping and continued to cry throughout the hearing, which lasted more than an hour. Her blond hair was pulled back in a disheveled knot, in contrast to the glamorous side-swept style in her booking photo from earlier in the week. She was wrapped in a long gray fuzzy sweat shirt over slacks. Her body shook constantly as she dabbed at her eyes. Several times she turned to her parents, seated behind her in the courtroom, and mouthed, "I love you." At one point, she made the sign of the cross and appeared to be praying. Despite being reincarcerated, she could still be released early. Inmates are given a day off their terms for every four days of good behavior, and her days in home detention counted as custody days. It appeared that Friday would count as her sixth day.

    Judge displays irritation at hearing

    Friday's hearing was delayed by a misunderstanding. Hilton apparently thought she was going to be able to participate from home by telephone. But the judge, who had not authorized that, angrily denounced a media outlet for spreading that rumor, although a court spokesman also gave that information to news media.  He ordered sheriff's deputies to go to Hilton's home and bring her to court. The process took nearly two hours. Once the hearing began, Sauer was blunt in his criticism of the sheriff for disobeying his orders, which specifically banned home confinement with electronic monitoring. "I at no time condoned the actions of the sheriff and at no time told him I approved the actions," he said. "At no time did I approve the defendant being released from custody to her home." The hearing was requested by the city attorney's office, which had prosecuted Hilton and wanted Baca held in contempt for releasing Hilton despite Sauer's express order that she serve her time in jail. The judge took no action on the contempt request. A member of the county counsel's staff said Baca was willing to come to court with medical personnel. The judge did not take him up on the offer. Assistant City Attorney Dan F. Jeffries argued that Hilton's incarceration was purely up to the judge. "Her release after only three days erodes confidence in the judicial system," he said. Hilton's attorney, Richard Hutton, implored the judge to order a hearing in his chambers to hear testimony about Hilton's medical condition before making a decision. The judge did not respond to that suggestion. The judge interrupted several times to say that he had received a call last Wednesday from an undersheriff informing him that Hilton had a medical condition and that he would submit papers to the judge to consider. He said the papers never arrived. Every few minutes, the judge would interrupt proceedings, state the time on the clock, and note that the papers still had not arrived. He also noted that he had heard that a private psychiatrist visited Hilton in jail, and he wondered if that person played a role in deciding her medical needs. The last attorney to speak was another deputy city attorney, David Bozanich, who declared, "This is a simple case. There was a court. The Sheriff's Department chose to violate that order. There is no ambiguity."

    Failed sobriety test last fall

    Hilton's twisted jailhouse saga began September 7, when she failed a sobriety test after police saw her weaving down a street in her Mercedes-Benz on what she said was a late-night hamburger run. (Watch how drunken driving is the bane of celebritiesVideo)  She pleaded no contest to reckless driving and was sentenced to 36 months' probation, alcohol education and $1,500 in fines. In the months that followed she was stopped twice while driving on a suspended license. The second stop landed her in Sauer's courtroom. Back before Sauer on Friday, Hilton's entire body trembled as the final pitch was made for her further incarceration. She clutched a ball of tissue and tears ran down her face. Seconds later, the judge announced his decision: "The defendant is remanded to county jail to serve the remainder of her 45-day sentence. This order is forthwith."

    Hilton screamed.

    Eight deputies immediately ordered all spectators out of the courtroom. Hilton's mother, Kathy, threw her arms around her husband, Rick, and sobbed uncontrollably.Deputies escorted Hilton out of the room, holding each of her arms as she looked back.

    Real Estate Sky Won't Fall: Here's Why
    Jun 07, 2007, 12:07 pm PDT

    Real estate hasn't made much of a case for itself lately and it's not getting much help from any of the sub industries, such as builders and mortgage makers. Just in the past few weeks, so called experts from the mortgage industry, the building industry, and the resale real estate industry have all been quoted as saying that the sky is falling.

    Nice job guys!

    And while real estate's reputation as the number one investment is on the ropes, the general media and other investment categories have stepped up their attacks on real estate value.

    What do you need to know?

    1. The Sky isn't falling.

    The real estate market always fluctuates.

    Real estate sales prices are largely determined by the principal of substitution and reflect the uniqueness of the property, at a specific point in time, competing against only those other similar properties that happen to be available for sale, at that point in time.

    If there are many similar homes available at that time, there will be downward pressure on sales prices. As an expanding population absorbs the excess, competition for a dwindling resource will cause selling prices to escalate.

    1. Real estate is unique.

    There's a reason that homes and real estate aren't traded like commodities on the Chicago Mercantile. They are too dissimilar. Even each tract home has a somewhat different location, orientation, lot dimension, proximity, and view.

    1. There is no bubble.

    The value of real estate isn't driven by speculation; it's driven by its utility. If the economy moves away, such as in the rust-belt, that utility may decline. If high paying jobs are headed into a region, the value of the scarcest of all commodities, real estate will rise.

    Increasing development costs absolutely guarantee that new construction will cost more than existing properties are selling for.

    This factor alone has caused many developers to mothball projects in the pipeline until shortages again push prices up.

    1. Value is a complicated cocktail.

    Assessed value, appraised value, market value, replacement value, and selling price all mean something different. When the media says that real estate values are falling, they really mean that the prices people paid for a small number of homes, last month, was less than what a different group of people paid for a different assortment the month before.

    1. There is always a baseline of demand.

    An increasing population must be housed. There is a natural ebb and flow, not a boom bust. At various times, demand outstrips supply; supply is increased until the surge recedes to baseline or below.

    1. There is always a baseline of mortgage defaults.

    There will always be unforeseen circumstances that will bring some homeowners into default. Even in good economic times. And even with good mortgage loans. In an appreciating market, they are able to sell in a short period of time. So, in most markets, foreclosure activity has been below the historic baseline.

    Now, it could increase, spiking a little to reflect those who can no longer survive on increasing equity and then may level out at baseline again. When the next rapid appreciation cycle begins, and it almost assuredly will, rates may fall back below the newly adjusted baseline.

    1. There is no risk.

    Save the term risk for high stakes poker in Vegas.

    Buying real estate isn't inherently risky. But it isn't a get-rich-quick scheme, either. It's a formula for building long term wealth.

    1. Real estate is a great way to build wealth.

    You have to live somewhere. If you rent, you are making some or all of someone else's mortgage payment. But even if you have to work two jobs and barely scrape by to make your own mortgage payment, you are building equity that over time will be quite substantial.

    So, perhaps, don't believe every "the sky if falling" report or article. Educate yourself on the market and happy wealth homeowning!
