CCC's new role

Posted by: 6PR | 21 June, 2012 - 5:56 PM
Colin Barnett introduced legislation to Parliament today.

Legislation has been introduced into State Parliament that allows the CCC to investigate serious and organised crime. Former Premier Brian Burke told Howard Sattler that up until now the CCC had been investigating the wrong people.

  • Well, "Barabas" (love the Biblical reference-the one who got away), I voted for Brian Burke and we trusted him when he was a great labor catholic living in Balga. A simple, honest man, if you will.
    Of course, he's probably still a catholic, but he doesn't live in Balga anymore, does he?

  • first things first, brian burke has very little credibility in matters concerning corruption. having said that, there is no denial that he is an intelligent and informed individual. i agree with him that the new role exposes the utter ineffectiveness of the ccc. the ccc doesn't even bare resemblance to what was intended by the royal commission. to ignore western australian history of endemic police corruption and to presume that police will not abuse their power if no INDEPENDENT body investigates them is obtuse and unforgivable when considered within the context of what the royal commission exposed.

  • barnett relies upon short-term memory ie that voters will forget the royal commission together with the propaganda he sells to the voters praising karl o'callaghan (& other senior command). the fact is, police corruption has undergone a very significant upsurge recently as the ccc have been apparently hamstrung (or outright refused) to investigate matters relating to the original portfolio. regardless of propaganda or hyperbole (even if true-simply looking at what has been exposed tells anyone with an iq greater than 40 that it's not, or silencing/twisting/admonishing any criticism, history,even a simple understanding of psychology will tell you that you NEVER turn your back on your police force.

  • Really, Daniel Ellsberg? Really? Are you aware that not one of the politically motivated charges from Smith's Beach has been upheld by the courts? So what was the crime the CCC got intercept warrants for? $40 million plus,I heard on the Murray program,it cost trying to embarrass and Gaol Burke, Grill, Marlborough and others, not to mention those whose careers and livelihoods have been destroyed in the process by these so called 'investigators'. $40 million dollars! That's why our hospitals have paper sheets and cold meals for patients, because lawyers and pretend cops want the money for their play. And by the way, Dellas, How about something to support that accusatio: 'And Brian Burke'd know, wouldn't he? Such a wronged man. Not.' Come on, mate, give us something with some fact to it and something that you have followed through on? I am fed up with the stupidity of the sheep following the same old line. I also ask why the CCC have the power to call journalists before a hearing and then threaten them with a $60,000 fine and/or 3 years in jail if they tell anyone. Yes it is the law, but the law is nuckin futs at times, especially when lawyers see it as their plaything and especially when it imposes itself on our freedom of speech and beliefs. You can thank McGinty for this multimillion dollar redundant political police force and his rolling Royal Commission. I have always had the feeling (and it's just a feeling - I believe they are still legal) that the CCC seemed one-eyed on the Right of the ALP party. Now why would that be the case, Jim? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corruption_and_Crime_Commission).

  • really? burke says they're investigating the wrong people! really? really? i think where the ccc should stay is in investigating politicians and high profile bureaucrats, they get their act and the example improves, isn't it pollies that argue benefit from the top end down?

  • OOOh, I'm so impressed. More shoving under the carpet, move ex-coppers, ex-judges and dubious "others" investigating and exonerating themselves?Personally, I believe that all police should have IQ tests constantly throughout their careers...especially in the emotional intelligence and language scales.
    And Brian Burke'd know, wouldn't he? Such a wronged man. Not.
