Summary

On a lonely highway in the middle of the night, two teenage Aboriginal girls are killed in a crash. Like rag dolls, their bodies are thrown from the Toyota Hilux when it rolls at high speed. One suffers massive internal injuries. The other has her ear and scalp torn off. They bleed out in the dirt. A drunk middle-aged white man crawls out of the crashed ute. It’s after midnight. He spreads a green plastic sheet on the stony ground. He drags the dead fifteen-year-old onto the tarp and pulls her pants down. He pushes her top up, exposing her breasts. He tries to have sex with her. He stretches out with his arm across her breasts and goes to sleep. The police charge him. He hires a criminal lawyer from the big end of town. An anonymous benefactor pays his expensive legal costs. The case drags on. Two years later, he fronts court. He walks. This story is about the justice system that saw Alexander Ian Grant acquitted of killing Mona Lisa Smith and Jacinta Rose Smith and of a charge of indecently interfering with fifteen-year-old Jacinta when she was dead. It describes the sad events which led to their violent deaths. It analyses the police case, which was so fragmented that it failed to gain a conviction. It seeks to understand what caused the deaths of the girls, why the police got it so wrong and how the accused walked away from the crash without a scratch and away from the court a free man.

    "Contains the most fascinating true crime story I have ever read." --Earl Stanley Gardner
    Crime, criminals, and their prosecution and punishment, have, from the day Cain slew Abel and the Supreme Law Enforcer dealt with the first fratricide, provoked the interest, aroused the passions, and puzzled the minds of men. Because tales of dark deeds are quick to catch attention and stark sensationalism is easily marketable, accuracy, which is always essential, no longer seems required. So much that we read, hear, and view is blatantly false and misleading, not only as fiction but as alleged truth, that almost universally there is an unwholesome, blurred, and distorted conception of the whole subject of law enforcement. That picture will perhaps never be clarified, unless the public becomes more knowingly critical, and irresponsible merchants of what is banal and lurid grow more scrupulously dependable.

  • Exposing the Illuminati’s REM Driven Human Cloning Subculture May 18th 2012 to May 24th 2012 - 1 #2 - cover

    Exposing the Illuminati’s REM...

    Foreword 
      
    Usually when a document such as this has been completed, which exposes the Illuminati, doubts raised by others who understand the gravity of the situation, but at the same time feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of the situation follows a pattern such as: ‘I don't really know how to help the situation too much’; ‘But we don't really know what to do at this point’; ‘It's a big problem.’ You are not alone in this situation. Many people currently and actively helping to raise further awareness and expose  the Illuminati to the point whereby the Illuminati’s REM driven human cloning subculture is FULLY exposed and worldly known have all felt despair with regards to the severity of this situation at one point or another. You are not alone. 
    Keeping the above in mind, the following quote is paraphrased from “Conversations with Nostradamus Volume 3” (Cannon 1994, chapter 19) and presented here to anyone who has recently found this information, and has felt feelings of despair or hopelessness, as well as, to anyone who has felt feelings of despair or hopelessness despite actively taking necessary actions to help expose the Illuminati, and further remind us all: no matter how terrible a situation we are faced with, if we want the situation to change, “change” starts with the individual human effort, and the reason for this is because: 
    It is extremely sad if we realise how terrible a situation is and we [as humanity] are not doing anything except feeling bad about the situation, the hopelessness that we feel about the situation is compounded [increased]. If we look at these things as too big for us to do anything about [such as looking at this information and thinking: ‘What can “I” as one individual do to help expose the Illuminati’s REM driven human cloning subculture? The problem is too big’] that means we have literally given up. Nothing is accomplished without individual human effort, which coalesces into group effort, and then action truly takes place. To give up is the worst thing that can happen to our world. It is essential while we are alive to do whatever we feel is a positive helpful step. To actually do it. Whatever it is! 
    With the above in mind, “Appendix A”, pages 179 to 199 – is provided in this document with suggestions of positive helpful steps individuals can take to further help expose the Illuminati’s REM driven human cloning subculture. Therefore, for the reader who needs guidance in terms of positive suggestions to help expose the Illuminati, you can skip to Appendix A: pages 179 to 199 of this document– and take the necessary actions required, according to the suggestions presented. Every little helps, and at the very least, you can sign the petitions (against human cloning) mentioned in this document, on page 178—and you can also sign these petitions “Anonymously”. Therefore, as the above suggests: Do whatever you feel is a positive helpful step in order to help with the divulgement and exposure of the Illuminati; whatever you feel is a positive and helpful step with regards to FULLY exposing the Illuminati’s REM driven human cloning subculture, DO IT! Do whatever is a positive helpful step, because nothing is ever accomplished without individual human effort, and after all, humanity’s fate depends on you!

    A sleeping giant now hides in every corner no longer afraid of the daylight as it slowly feeds from the innocent and the abuse of those whom were once free. Many nations are policed by law enforcement that do not carry guns, yet our police force depends upon guns as a frequently as we rely on introductions. This book explores what nourishes the perception of racism in our nation today, as well as defining where we are and identifying who the killers are. The author shares his real-life experience with rogue police officers who abused their powers, knowing they were breaking the law by using illegal police practices yet knowing the courts will back their version as they testily. The author minimized his loss by searching the Internet before appearing in court, learning valuable lessons, which he now shares in his account of the terrible day, November 27, 2014. Ignorance will get you put in prison with the other millions of innocent people who pled guilty so they could have a chance at a limited freedom later in life. Ignorance will see your children and family behind bars as the United States evolve into a police state, blaming the false existence of racism as the enemy.

    For thirty-one years, a monster terrorized the residents of Wichita, Kansas. A bloodthirsty serial killer, self-named "BTK"—for "bind them, torture them, kill them"—he slaughtered men, women, and children alike, eluding the police for decades while bragging of his grisly exploits to the media. The nation was shocked when the fiend who was finally apprehended turned out to be Dennis Rader—a friendly neighbor . . . a devoted husband . . . a helpful Boy Scout dad . . . the respected president of his church. 
    Written by four award-winning crime reporters who covered the story for more than twenty years, Bind, Torture, Kill is the most intimate and complete account of the BTK nightmare told by the people who were there from the beginning. With newly released documents, evidence, and information—and with the full cooperation, for the very first time, of the Wichita Police Department’s BTK Task Force—the authors have put all the pieces of the grisly puzzle into place, thanks to their unparalleled access to the families of the killer and his victims.
