 HAIG    REPORT:    WANTED:
Healthy female "dog" to breed with Parson Russell Terrier, to produce ASSISTANCE DOGS.   Rochedale South QLD 4123
I wish to breed from my Parson Russell Terrier. He is a trained assistance dog. He has a wonderful nature. The breed of his mate could be varied or a cross; eg Parson Russell Terrier, Jack Russell Terrier, Beagle, Bull Terrier, Bull mastiff, Staffy, and/or Fox Terrier plus many others. She does not need to be "pedigreed". I am very protective of my dogs. She will become very valuable to me and become one of my assistance "dogs". If we can assist each other, please contact me on my contact form, including your email address and your landline phone number so I can phone you to discuss. 

Because I am disabled and have an LLB [so therefore understand the Law surrounding disabilities and assistance dogs] I am now branching out to providing Assistance dogs to disabled persons [even if disabled in only a minor way and so not even realizing it]. This is not a business proposition but rather just a very necessary service I can offer to the community.
Many people have a disability and do not realize their ailment or "problem" is by law, the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) [DDA], classified as a "disability". This is especially so for people getting on in years, and who have a dog, and are maybe moving to accommodation where they are told they cannot take their dog. In a majority of cases, those people cannot be legally forced to surrender their animal/dog.
I will be assisting those person who already have dogs, but are being forced, unlawfully, to dispose of them because maybe they are moving accommodation. I can train your existing dogs to be assistance dogs and provide the documentation as required by the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) [DDA]. I do not intend to charge for this, but just maybe cover some marginal costs.

Index: Definitions Regarding The Legal Process:

IndexContent Previously, I had produced only a single page about 'legal definitions', on HaigReport and named it, definitionsregardingthelegalprocess.php /.  [One of my four degrees from The University of Qld is an LLB [Law Degree], so I guess I know a little bit about the law, and the theory of how the law should happen.  The corruption in Queensland and Australia means that it does not happen as it should.]  I have now decided to produce a whole Website [this one] called /DefinitionsRegardingTheLegalProcess/ within HaigReport viz:  http://HaigReport.com/DefinitionsRegardingTheLegalProcess/ of which this page is the index page.   I will now tell you my reasoning.

Almost all of law can be considered as 'definitions'.  This website may contain explanations of how a concept of law has come to be defined as it is.  Hence, although this website DefinitionsRegardingTheLegalProcess/ will contain much more than merely a few words "defining the term',  and eventually containing a far more in-depth explanations, I consider they can still be referenced as "definitions".

I believe that the Internet is changing the judicial system [and legal 'profession'], has already changed it/them noticeable, but will change them in far greater ways in the future and at an exponentially accelerating rate.  This is my hypothesis.

Brexit, the reduction in importance of the major political parties as shown in the Australian Federal Election on July 2, 2016, the election of Trump in the US, and the reduction in importance of the EU as shown by a number of recent [2016] elections in countries in the EU, are I believe an indication of the effect of the Internet, and the easier and increased amount of communication that it has delivered.  Because of the internet, the way people think is changing.  People do not need to remember as much now beause they can always Google for the information.  People now are exposed to far  more information and 'opinions' that cause people to think differently and question far more.    Because of this effect, populations have a lesser view of  'the establishment'.   The 'Establishment' in Australia is not just the federal parliament and federal government, but also all elected bodies in Australia such as State and Territory legislatures and administrations and executive governments.

It is not as if the world of corruption is changing.   The Administrations in Queensland have been corrupt for at least 75 years, when the Queensland police have been corrupt,  but the two main political party establishment continued without attacking the police corruption, as it was more beneficial to the political parties for the police corruption to remain than not.  The last 11 charges that Qld police have laid against me have been decided in my favour.   I represented myself.   That would most certainly not have been the case if I had had a "lawyer".  Magistrates and judges were not eager to dismiss the charges.  I had to take  one to the highest Qld Court, the Court of Criminal Appeal to win.  The decision of the Court of Appeal was written up in the Brisbane Daily Newspaper, the Courier-Mail, as "Talk of the Legal World".   The corrupt magistrate Walter Harvey Ehrich was described by the Court of Appeal as Topsy-Turvey, "Sentence first, Verdict afterwards".

Times have been tough, too, previously, in the other countries mentioned, but the 'silent majority" remained silent.  The fact that this, the silent majority becoming 'vocal', is occurring globally, is, I believe, due to some universal fact, and that "universal fact" is the Internet.

Just as the  'establishment' has long been corrupt, so, I believe, has the judiciary long been corrupt, not necessarily every member of the judiciary, but enough of them to strongly colour the whole judiciary as corrupt.

The Judiciary could be expected to be corrupt, when the police are corrupt, so making the legal profession corrupt, such that the courts, lawyers and prosecutors are all a "single entity" [a corrupt 'club'] and the only other person. the 'outsider', is the individual, being prosecuted by the police or, attempting to sue the government or representatives of the government.   Even the the defendant's lawyer is a member of the single entity corrupt club.  The lawyer does not really represent his client [although that is what the 'establishment' wants you to believe]; the client is just 'money'.  Even with legal aid, the client is a fixed price job, so all the 'free' lawyer wants is his job, the client, [ie yourself if you have a lawyer] to be as quick and easy as possible.  Hence, he will probably tell [con] you to plead guilty at the earliest opportunity, even if you are innocent [but he is well practiced at conning innocent defendants that they are guilty].  If you think you have not broken the law, then the probability is strong that you are really innocent.    You may be better off representing yourself.  If you are innocent but do plead guilty on the advice of a "free" [huh!] legal aid lawyer, or 'duty lawyer', you will find that the police will not leave you alone but will be prosecuting you repeatedly.   If you pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity on the advice [and con] of a legal aid lawyer, or the 'duty lawyer', then, to the police, you were an easy 'pushover', and the pigs will target you from then on. Legal aid lawyers are not paid to defend you. The purpose of 'Duty Lawyers' is to expedite the 'police courts'. They are  paid to have you plead guilty at the earliest opportunity.  In fact, magistrates will often refuse to accept a 'not guilty' plea, and require the 'defendant' to see the duty lawyer instead.  The intention of the magistrate is that the duty lawyer will con the defendant into entering a guilty plea.

Don't be fooled that governments fund legal aid as a "social benefit".  [That is what they will want you to believe.]  Governments fund legal aid, so that courts are freed of as much "work" as possible, and to please police so they have the highest conviction rate possible.

Magistrates defer to corrupt police as the corrupt police can make a magistrate's job very difficult, by causing him much more work.   Hence magistrates will tend to be 'on the side' of the police.  Lawyers know this.   There are only a few police prosecutors and they appear daily.   Lawyers build up brownie points with the police prosecutors by letting their clients be "shown' to be guilty and not putting up a real defence.  The lawyers 'cash-in" the brownie points [along with a bribe to the police prosecutor] when the lawyer has a wealthy but corrupt client who is prepared to pay a big bribe to the lawyer to have the prosecution 'vanish'.   Innocent people persecuted by police and legal aid clients are just "grist for the mill" of the corrupt police, and the corrupt judicial and legal system.

A lawyer's future does not depend upon you as they already  have your money in his trust account, or is paid by legal aid.  The lawyer's future depends upon his grovelling enough to the judges and politicians such that he will be appointed to be a magistrate or judge.

The Internet is the reason that more people are now representing themselves in court, before Judges and Magistrates.

Even if you do not agree with me that the Internet has been responsible, completely or mainly, for Brexit, Trump and the growth of minor political parties at the 2nd July, 2016 Australian Federal Election, it is clear that more people are representing themselves in court, with the great assistance of the internet.  

Online Law Resources

Lawyers, including police and Crown Law, have access to generous law libraries. They have studied law also, to understand law.  These are the necessary law resources.  At one time, if a person wished to represent themselves, or defend themselves in court, or to prosecute a civil claim against government or the public sector, that person needed access to law resources.  That person had to travel to a law library in a university law school or the Supreme Court Library, had have to pay a fortune for photocopying.

Now, so much law resources are available online.   The online resources have been growing all this time, and were not instantly online.   Representing oneself is now so much easier and more productive of just outcomes.

Law is basically legislation or case law, [decided cases, precedents].   Previously, Law Reporting companies had a monopoly on case law, and case law, was published in Law Reports which cost considerable sums, and resided in the law libraries to which lawyers had ready access.   To obtain the legislation, one had to buy copies of the statutes, and any updates to the statute, and the statute could still become out of date, at any time, and it was a difficult task to know what legislation was current.

All or almost all legislation is now online, including the CURRENT FORMS OF THE STATUTES.

Online Resources for UNDERSTANDING LAW

Although lawyers  have studied law to supposedly understand law, lawyers are not the epitome of inteligence.  Many do not have university degrees.  Most who gain entrance to university courses gain the reasonably high entrance score, not because they are particularly intelligent, but because they can write crap, or their catholic school nuns and brothers corrupted the university entrance system to give them a higher score.  As well, there are many second garde universities in Australia, [the Dawkin university of cobbled together TAFE collegewith much lower entrance scores, now offering law degrees.

Lawyers need to refer to reference material and explanations of legal concepts and much of a law library contains that material.   I would imagine, many now do much of their "legal research" online, just as you can.

Many university law schools have all their lecture material now online.  Common Law is much the same across all the Common Law jurisdictions.  If not imperitive, concepts from other Common Law jurisdictions can be highly influential.  United Nations Human Rights  instruments although not legislated in Australia, can be highly influential.

I have had the HaigReport.com web site now since August, 2006. I have substantial court and legal content on my sites.  Checking my website stats, I find that the search terms bringing visitors to my sites, are clear indicators of people doing their own court documentation.

Note to parents of an innocent son being persecuted by police [& the Qld police do alot of that - of the last 11 charges that Qld police had laid against me, all 11 have been decided in my favour]:

If your son is being charged by police, and you think he is innocent, you have not done or are not doing the best by your son, by just being satisfied he was 'represented' by the duty lawyer or has a "legal aid" lawyer.    If you feel your son is not able to do the online research so as to represent himself, I suggest you could consider assisting him and then going with him to court.  You can be a "McKenzie Friend" in court.  As a McKenzie Friend you can sit beside your son in court.  There is some debate about what you can do. The "McKenzie Friend" is an animal of Common Law, and as such is still developing.  The magistrate may prevent your speaking.   The magistrate would need to agree to your sitting beside your son. [If the magistrate refused, your son may have that as one, maybe extra, ground of appeal, as your son has rights of due process aka procedural fairness aka Natural Justice, and that includes the Right to Be Heard, widely defined.  I suggest you should let the magistrate know you are your son's parent.   The magistrate may realize, that at some time after the hearing, a parent is likely to cause more trouble for the magistrate than another lawyer.  [Qld police and magistrates will soon know of this page, so if you appear with your son, the magistrate will guess you have read this page.]  The magistrate is likely to ask you, the parent, questions if he thinks that will make his job easier and quicker.

Re: Appeal:

If you plead guilty, you cannot generally appeal your conviction.    Most prosecutions by police in Queensland are pursuant to the Justices Act.  Without charge/ ie without filing fees or court costs, if one is dissatisfied with the decision of the magistrate, the person can appeal generally to the District Court pursuant to Sec 222 Justices Act 1886 (Qld).   If dissatisfied with the decision of the District Court,  one can then appeal [technically, seek leave to Appeal] that  decision to  the Court of Appeal, pursuant to sec 118 District Court of Queensland Act 1967, again at no filing fee or court cost.

Each of those appeals will involve the police in more work, as opposed to the amount of work needed if the defendant pleads guilty on the advice of the duty lawyer, in the police court at the first mention of the charge.   It would also cause more work for courts, and court staff, and that will cost the state government more money.  Subtle pressure will be brought to bear on police if they are causing more work by persecuting young men.   Unfortunately, police will tend to persecute young men who are less likely than the average to be able to represent themselves.   That needs to be brought so the knowledge of any magistrates and judges, because doing that by police is unlawful, but their acting unlawfully does not stop the corrupt Queensland police.

As more and more people represent themselves, as I believe they will because of the internet, I believe that that will change the whole manner that the police, judicial, and lawyer systems perform.  Magistrates and judges have to be far more careful with an unrepresented defendant than with a lawyer.   Magistrates and judges are entitled to believe that the lawyer representing the defendant is ensuring that all the rights of the defendant are protected.   When the defendant is representing himself, the magistrate or judge has to perform that task, and access that all his rights are protected.  For that reason, he is likely to agree to have a parent sit with the parent's son.   The concentration and effort required of a magistrate for an unrepresented defendant is many time what is required if the defendant is 'represented' by a lawyer.  The increase in the proportion and number of self represented defendants will have a major impact on magistrates, judges, police and lawyers.  There will be more self represented defendants and self represented appeals and fewer defendants represented by lawyers.  This will mean more work for magistrates and judges; more work for the legal sections of the police, less business and money for lawyers.   That will mean that there will be more pressure placed on magistrates and judges of first instance to ensure that defendants are given a fair hearing and magistrates and judges will be required to ensure that Crown Law and police lawyers give defendants a fair go, and not use technical arguments to prevent defendants from putting their defence.
