Same Law - One for the rich one for the masses

People are living in a delusion if they believe that the same law is enforced in the same manner for the ruling elite, business, financial, criminal sector as it is for the masses, i.e. The Joneses, The John Does, and in general the community at large.

The law is structured in such a manner that it punishes abiding citizen, for committing the SAME crime as the more influential members of the community, being it thought the help of the (masonic) brotherhood, or any other influential sources.

Here is a list (all factual) compiled that clearly shows the deliberate short fall of the law:

The drink-driving offence was his fifth traffic violation since March 2006, the court heard.
Magistrate Alan Taylor heard defence arguments that any conviction would jeopardise Langer's prospects for international travel and would therefore threaten his career. Mr Taylor said Langer's eagerness to plead guilty entitled him to "some discount" and no conviction was recorded.

Darryl Somers gets let off without a conviction despite blowing .098 after drinking 5 glasses of wine and then getting behind the wheel on November 9 last year

************************************************** *********************************

Henry Bolte: the former Victorian Premier got done for drink driving but the blood sample famously disappeared.

************************************************** *********************************

Bob Charles: The Federal Liberal MP got off with a good behaviour bond after blowing 0.145%.

************************************************** *********************************

Justice John Gallop: Raymond Hoser claims that the ACT Supreme Court Judge was picked up with a blood alcohol limit of .1 and was fined without a conviction or licence suspension.

************************************************** *********************************

Kathryn Greiner, the wife of the former NSW Premier Nick Greiner, was arrested and charged with drink-driving, where her blood-alcohol was measured at 0.11, more than double the limit. Under normal conditions, this offence would mean automatic licence loss however her case was dismissed. Obviously automatic licence loss does not apply when the rich and famous are involved.

************************************************** *********************************

Dave Grohl: The Nirvana/Foo Fighters guru copped a fine and no conviction in the Gold Coast court last year, for being drunk on a rented motor scooter. Our spy reckons he might have blown .15%.

************************************************** *********************************

Lady Sonia McMahon, the widow of former Prime Minister Billy McMahon, was caught driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.13 and was put on a $1000 12-month bond but escaped conviction.

************************************************** *********************************

Former world champion surfer Barton Lynch was caught driving with a blood-alcohol level three times the legal limit but was allowed to keep his driving licence and escaped conviction.

************************************************** *********************************
in Newcastle, Senior Constable Glenn Smyth crashed his car while drunk. He recorded a blood-alcohol level of 0.178, but was placed on a $400 bond and not convicted.

************************************************** *********************************

Former NSW minister Michael Yabsley was allowed to keep his driving licence despite being booked by police and recording a blood alcohol reading almost four times the legal limit.

************************************************** *********************************

Stephen Whelan, the son of the then NSW Police Minister, was allowed to keep his provisional driving licence after being caught with a blood-alcohol level five times the legal limit. This offence would normally result in instant cancellation of a provisional licence for a lengthy period, at least some years. Showing some backbone for a change, the Department of Public Prosecutions appealed the decision and Whelan's licence was cancelled, but for a minuscule three months.

************************************************** *********************************

Millionaire high profile Sydney businessman John Singleton was let off without a fine, loss of licence or conviction after being caught speeding at 160kph in his Bentley on a highway with a speed limit of 110kph. At the time, this offence carried a monetary penalty of $668, instant licence cancellation and a criminal conviction. Singleton did not offer any form of mitigation, such as that he might have been speeding to a hospital because a passenger had suffered a heart attack. Without an apparent sign of contrition, Singleton merely said that it was perfectly safe to drive his Bentley on that road at that speed

************************************************** *********************************

Well-known millionairess and socialite Susan Renouf pleaded guilty to negligent driving and leaving the scene of an accident, an offence that normally results in a criminal conviction. However she was not convicted but fined $200, a paltry sum to a woman of her wealth.

************************************************** *********************************

Anton Faber-Castell, all of 17 years old and newly licensed, drove his father's BMW 740i on Sydney's 100kph speed limited F3 freeway at an astonishing 200kph and was clocked twice at that speed by police radar. He only held a probationary driving licence, which meant that he was not permitted to drive over 90kph at any time. Normally probationary drivers automatically lose their licences if they are caught driving at any speed over the posted limit. The maximum penalty for driving at such an excessive speed as 200kph is a $2200 fine, nine months in jail and licence disqualification for three years. However Faber-Castell's penalty was even more astonishing. He was given a 12 month good behaviour bond, his conviction was not recorded and he was ordered to pay $56 in court costs and incredibly, the magistrate even allowed him to keep his licence. Any reasonable person would wonder why Faber-Castell received such a pittance of a penalty instead of having the book thrown at him by the magistrate. Could it be because Anton Faber-Castell is the heir to the German Faber-Castell stationery manufacturing fortune and his extremely wealthy family has great influence?

The curator of the NSW Art Gallery and well-known socialite Edmund Capon was frustrated by crawling traffic in exclusive Double Bay, so he took matters into his own hands by driving his car over the kerb and proceeding down the footpath. When stopped by a policeman, the excuse he offered was that he was easing traffic congestion. He was also not even wearing a seatbelt at the time. Was the very wealthy Mr Capon taken to court for these offences? Of course not. He was not even booked by the policeman, who himself was not proceeded against for dereliction of duty
