PAROLE JUMP PAY DAY – Friday March 15 2013

– A legal loophole allowing fugitives to receive fortnightly Centrelink payments has been slammed as Victoria Police reveal thousands of repeat offenders are in the run.
Suspects wanted for 13 murders, 45 rapes and 179 armed robberies are among 16,059 people on 29,430 outstanding arrest warrants.
Police said many could be committing more crimes and Centrelink had acknowledged welfare payments could not be stopped because a person was wanted for arrest. Experts said it was common knowledge criminals used the welfare payment to help evade capture.
Police Association secretary Greg Davies said the legal loophole must be fixed.
Centrelink said payments were stopped if a person was in jail or no longer living at a stated address. But no legislation existed regarding wanted criminals.
Victoria Police has launched a specialist Fugitive Taskforce to catch the most dangerous offenders.
The Taskforce trial has seen Victoria’s wanted list cut by 300 since 2011. Detective Superintendent Peter De Santo said the group had been very successful and hunting fugitives was challenging and resource-intensive.
Most outstanding warrants related to people who had been freed on bail but failed to show up at court.
Centrelink provided information on clients to law enforcement agencies on request more than 15,000 times in 2012, including addresses.
One of the oldest outstanding arrest warrants still active is for a man wanted on a kicking and assault charge dating from November 1974.
A warrant for his arrest was approved after he failed to appear at a Magistrates Court in the same year.
He has not been found in the past 37 years.
Victoria Police data revealed the thousands of wanted suspects were categorised by 26 serious offences, including kidnapping, arson, assault and weapons charges.
It is feared they continue to commit crimes while on the run – Alex White

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
