POLICE FIND WAY TO REVEAL DIRT – Wednesday May 15 2013

– Police have identified a way they believe allows them to tip off the racing industry about dodgy jockeys, trainers and owners without breaking the law.
And the AFL yesterday made an appeal to police to also tell it of any intelligence it had about possible criminal acts or football code breaches by AFL players or officials, such as the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
Victoria Police Deputy Commissioner Graham Ashton revealed in the Herald Sun yesterday several racing identities would be banned if the law allowed the force to reveal what they had been caught doing.
He was referring to secret telephone tap material that reveals either criminal behaviour or breaches of various codes by people connected with racing and other sports.
Mr Ashton said the force would like to be able to share that information with sporting bodies, but federal laws stopped it from doing so.
Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus indicated that the Federal Government had no intention of changing the law.
“Telephone intercepts are a significant imposition on civil liberties,” his spokeswoman said. “While the Attorney-General has authorised agencies to undertake interception to deal with serious crimes, this information cannot be passed to sporting bodies to conduct in-house inquiries into disciplinary matters.”
Premier Dennis Napthine yesterday vowed to push for the law to change.
With a law change all but ruled out, Victoria Police is seeking legal advice on whether it can reveal incriminating material it has about racing identities that didn’t come from bugging phones.
The head of the force’s Intelligence and Covert Support Unit, Doug Fryer, yesterday told the Herald Sun the unit had just completed an intelligence assessment into the Victorian racing industry.
The AFL yesterday said the growing threat of corruption in sport made a strong case for police to be allowed to work more closely with approved sporting bodies.
Racing Integrity Commissioner Sal Perna yesterday said it was vital for the good of the sport that police be able to tell him what dirt they had – Keith Moor

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.
