ANYTHING BUT ORDINARY
The travel was approved by the VICPOL case manager on the 13th of August at the Sydney Airport. On the Saturday the 13th of August in Honolulu USA I was confronted by Border Force stating there was something wrong with my passport. Impossible I thought. The conversation lead into insinuating my business was sex work, that I was there to "get in with the FBI to get Travis out" of jail, I was questioned about a letter Travis wrote mentioning the government. The process ended with myself placed in immigration detention advised by ICE to Border Force - VICPOL, the Victorian Police Force facing a torts civil claim from myself, had flagged my passport and evidently even the CIA has part in this. Fabricated evidence the only possible way I could have been stopped before reaching New York. I was not given ability to communicate with Anyone, the consulate could not confirm with my parents my whereabouts even though I elected for the Australian consulate to be notified. ICE has routinely violated human rights. ICE agents & police officers colluding with ICE engage in racial profiling & warrantless searches, detain people without probable cause plus fabricate evidence, myself witness to numerous of these abuses of power and authority. Abuse of power or abuse of authority, in the form of "malfeasance in office" or "official abuse of power", is the commission of an unlawful act, done in an official capacity, which affects the performance of official duties.
A first hand witness of ICE violating human rights, fabricating evidence for detainment by engaging searches without grounds, fabricating statements and evidence with Border Force. I was shocked that four (4) years after first visiting the USA that American governance was stooping to this level of dehumanisation and degrading treatment, though not surprised, congress had tragically become a slaughter house January 2021.
"If a law is unjust a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so." — Thomas Jefferson
Abuse of power and process puts the administration of justice into disrepute among right-thinking people.
"An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law."
The court's said I shouldn't have been there, I'm a protester, a law scholar, an author. The case did not fit the framework of criminality. My lawyer advocated my respectful occupations.
Media protection was Just enough.
HUMAN RIGHTS MATTER, the Association Laws are Not Fit for Purpose, Justice for ALL.
I am FREE, You are NOT Free from the Accountability of your Corruption.👑✌
I got on the plane, not knowing VICPOL had flagged my passport in Honolulu USA, the AFP waiting for me when I was returned stated they did not flag my passport. Over 23 days I was transported and detained by an Abuse of Power and Process after reporting a sex offender to VICPOL.
IBAC had lost the case reference from 2019, like VICPOL had lost photos of Dan Andrews which would have seen him out of political office over half a decade ago. A state seeded with corruption, Nazi roots and government department discrepancies over numerous decades unravelling for all to see.
From NSW, I travelled with VICPOL rural police who had no idea of the background abuse of power and process, nor my torts claim against the informant. I asked them if they were going to submit the evidence factual to courts to which they replied they will "tow the line of VICPOL" and say what they had been scripted.
At the whim of VICPOL in Victoria the G4S medics gave me an excessive amount of pain killers (panadol and nurofen) topped with oxycodone and valium - my heart nearly stopped in custody. These moments recorded at 616 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne VIC 3004 where many staffers stated VICPOL run the place. An irrefutable moment showing that deaths in custody were not always an accident and aided by those surrounding the detained.
The court's did not have time to hear the facts out fairly on the 19th August 2022. I expressed incarceration would be in excess of any repercussions I would have faced for disobedience to an application stemming from abuse of power and process - I was right, yet detained in Dame Phyllis Frost Centre (DPFC) until the first available hearing time. The 5th of September 2022 the first available hearing time. I was illegally detained in the degrading and dehumanising facility, managed by Tracey Jones for over a decade, DPFC. Spending most of my days in communication with the Ombudsman and IBAC due to the atrocities I was exposed to. Staff destroyed many of my belongings, as did VICPOL the DPFC told myself upon release. Evidently following up the thefts and damaged property left liability on the detainment centres seemingly with VICPOL not searching my property after escorting me to Melbourne custody. My signature was forged on documents by staff as they justified the maladministration and malpractices with comments like "you need to realise where you are - your in jail" expressing the law and my rights didn't exist while confined by their walls. I continued to report it all, the process for the Ombudsman required me to address the general manager and after numerous calls I actually found them unhelpful expressing this to the case manager Jess who basically said I had to deal with it and that she could do little to help. Thinking to myself that if they can do nothing were wasting taxpayer dollars on this department. I wrote to IBAC, getting photocopies of my letters as well as rewriting copies for myself.
I called upon the Ombudsman to act towards a Royal Commision into DPFC also reaching out to IBAC in the same manner.
I recorded every request I made, every requested ignored. A dot point daily diary of the hours and interactions with staff I had behind the DPFC's dirty walls. Requests for hayfever tablet - denied, access to my asthma puffer - denied, access to basic property provided to other inmates - denied.
Many of the 'screws' (as inmates referred) ex VICPOL police officers inmate's claimed. Speaking to very few inmates as a public figure in separation I heard stories claiming the government facilitated and groomed children into prostitution in Victoria, like South Australia, through the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing (DFFH). Housing young teens with older girls already in the sex industry who were providing services to police officers and government officials sworn to protect them. Taken from said abusive homes to be sold into sexual slavery. The emotional distress I felt after being sexually assaulted - raped by men involved with the sex industry in numerous states over years since assisting a police investigation overseen by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) was overwhelming. Suffering from victimisation by many staffers then exposed to further trauma, I left DPFC completely traumatised. Breaking down in the taxi which transported me to the emergency house I would reside until able to return to my home state of South Australia.

The Story Behind The Brand BARBWIRE NOOSE
"I sent a sneaky, desperate email from a random passengers phone on the return flight from Honolulu to Sydney to my Mum, petrified of the ongoings that were mounting. In custody at G4S St Kilda Road I nearly lost my life – Barbwire Noose was nearly lost to the world, Human Rights severely compromised. Over a 24-hour period (recorded on camera) I was feed at least 16 painkillers, a mix of Panadol and Nurofen tablets topped with oxycodone and valium – I had never consumed oxycodone or valium. Myself 51kg in weight, my heart nearly stopped on the 19th of August 2022. I had thought that VICPOL’s medical negligence of myself getting my period at baggage check-in, surrounded by passengers, blood running down my leg covered luckily by my slacks, was going to be the worse medical emergency I suffered. How wrong I was. On the 20th of August I was transported to the female jail of this Melbourne district, Dame Phyllis Frost Centre (DPFC), where medical abuses continued. Near death not a first in my life, it was a bittersweet moment to survive after years of sexual abuse at the hands of police and gang aligned sex offenders. A six (6) week delivery promise on Barbwire Noose products since the covid pandemic, the brand and I were lucky to recover after nearly four (4) weeks of detainment. I counted the day’s and recorded EVERYTHING. Purchasing two (2) note pads, pens, pencils and erasers a few days into being confined to the DPFC’s dirty walls. Barbwire Noose’s NYFW opportunity wasting away with my life. Breaches of Human Rights and mounting illegalities plaguing Barbwire Noose progress at this time. A profitable previous financial year dissipating as I was degraded and dehumanised. Experiences eroding my will to live, to finish this publication, to succeed – to try and strive, to be good or do good. Designing was never going to be enough to satisfy my curious mind, with legal study prospects and other career paths in sight I was almost at the point where I was going to give it all up. Barbwire Noose, my ‘One Love’ the fight for Human Rights and everything that would be from my existence was on the brink of dying. I had nearly died during the processing; in my mind I was not going to die at the hands of another, yet no one could save me from myself. Barbwire Noose and all it had achieved; all it was set to achieve was built on the foundation of me. Barbwire Noose relied on my desire to contribute good, and I no longer knew if I could hold back a longing desire to lose my shit."
