EXTRACT CHAPTER SIX

"I was falsely imprisoned as part of the perception police needed to create to use unlawful association laws against my persons, even though my Dad who is really associated and has buried a gun for bikers has never been accused of such things. Even though I am Not associated (not that I believe this should be a law. The right to associate is a Human Right). Arrested with a ruling on maladministration resulting in a without conviction charge laid on a victim of police crime and criminal negligence with all that I have really done to get police attention was report and call out sex offending.

Thousands of dollars of my property was damaged and stolen by VICPOL and prison staff via G4S in St Kilda and DPFC. I reported everything via the Ombudsman Victoria and IBAC with these departments seemingly doing little to rectify a culture of theft, dehumanisation and institutional abuse.

VICPOL police started spreading rumours with malicious intentions saying I was a prostitute, informant, crown witness and dated cops seemingly immediately. Intentionally malicious statements spread hoping to cause grievous bodliy harm to me in custody.

I have had some valueless stolen items returned, some of this petty property returned not even mine. No apology and even though the tort has been acknowledged on record by a judge and evidence of the tort is with the AFP, VICPOL assigned to investigate VICPOL police sent a letter stating they required thirty-five weeks to find hundreds of dollars of perfume, replace my laptop due to damage, return stolen pearls which were New York Fashion Week garment embellishments, replace thousands of dollars of cosmetics, damaged jewellery, etc. “Justice delayed is justice denied” is a legal maxim. It means that if legal redress or equitable relief to an injured party is available, but is not forthcoming in a timely fashion, it is effectively the same as having no remedy at all.

This principle is the basis for the right to a speedy trial and similar rights which are meant to expedite the legal system, because of the unfairness for the injured party who sustained the injury having little hope for timely and effective remedy and resolution. The phrase has become a rallying cry for legal reformers who view courts, tribunals, judges, arbitrators, administrative law judges, commissions or governments as acting too slowly in resolving legal issues — either because the case is too complex, the existing system is too complex or overburdened, or because the issue or party in question lacks political favour. Individual cases may be affected by judicial hesitancy to make a decision. Statutes and court rules have tried to control the tendency; and judges may be subject to oversight and even discipline for persistent failures to decide matters timely, or accurately report their backlog. When a court takes a matter “under advisement” – awaiting the issue of a judicial opinion, order or judgement and forestalls final adjudication of a lawsuit or resolution of a motion – the issue of timeliness of the decision(s) comes into play.

The Victorian courts delayed the release of the court audio which proves irrefutably that malpractice within courthouses was being used to try and assist police with this insidious institutional abuse. Courts administrations and a judge involved in malfeasance. An irrefutable gross display of a lack of separation of powers and proof that our judicial system had been compromised by illegal conduct, bribery and not fit for purpose legislation.

This chapter is not a light hearted read, this facility was run by many creeps, pigs and thieves dressed as its authority.


I ended up in DPFC because I reported a VICPOL police officer, Damian Ferrari, for sexual assault and domestic violence in November 2018. In 2019, from the station where Damian was a station commander, he retaliated with an illegal intervention application which he supported with falsified claims of criminality against myself. His actions should have been addressed well before August 2022 when I was falsely imprisoned. False imprisonment is an unlawful restraint of a person by another within a fixed area, the judge on September 5th acknowledging the offence did not fit the punishment of incarceration, that I should not have been incarcerated. Stating to the court even that I would not have learned anything from the experience as I was a protester not a criminal. A correct assessment there from the judge, I was not a threat to the police. Nor was there any need for intervention by persons whose core mission should be public safety - to reduce and patrol crime. Furthermore, police should accept responsibility for their personal fear reduction because they are the experts on crime and disorder. A little girl who has no recorded history of physical violence against anyone, especially while protesting my right to resolution, fair trial and safety.


Many of the 'screws' (as inmates referred) were ex Victorian Police Force (VICPOL) police officers inmate's claimed. Speaking to very few inmates as a public figure in separation there were claims the government facilitated and groomed children into prostitution in Victoria (a likeness to claims made in 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. These allegations investigated would be easy to prove to be true. I was disturbed beyond words by the enormity and consistency between states in regards to paedophilia and grooming young women into the sex industry. The emotional distress I personally felt after being sexually assaulted; raped by men involved with the sex industry in numerous states over years since assisting homicide investigation overseen by the Australian Federal Police (AFP), was overwhelming. The more sex industry facts I was exposed to, the more emotional distress it caused me - it was quite unbearable.


An innocent victim, stuck in over a decade of police abusing power and process to cover up governmental department misconduct. A repetitive cover up of SAPOL criminality which actually spans decades regarding sex offenders.

In 2022 during my efforts to resolve numerous reports against sex offenders and with a torts claim against VICPOL the police forces allowed the worst of torts to occur as a direct result of abuse of power and process. Perjury committed knowingly by Horsham Police, Victoria police, under Commissioner Shane Patton I quote stated they “Tow the line of VICPOL” which is not only malfeasance but making false or misleading statements while under oath that intentionally deceive the court is a felony. Since judges and juries make decisions based on witness testimonies and evidence, lying under oath can cause significant harm to a case. Or benefit it if the police are seeking incarceration from there false narrative it seems. VICPOL illegally incarcerating me was assisted by ICE - Immigration USA, Border Force USA. the AFP Australia and NSWPOL Australia.

If I was the AFP commissioner at this time witnessing the tort. The tort evident as approval to travel was given to myself initially, I would have reported the police responsible for the tort via integrity avenues and refused to co-operate on grounds of legal and code of conduct articles. Code of Conduct articles as follows; Law enforcement officials shall not commit any act of corruption. They shall also rigorously oppose and combat all such acts. Law enforcement officials shall at all times fulfil the duty imposed upon them by law, by serving the community and by protecting all persons against illegal acts, consistent with the high degree of responsibility required by their profession. In the performance of their duty, law enforcement officials shall respect and protect human dignity and maintain and uphold the human rights of all persons. No law enforcement official may inflict, instigate or tolerate any act of torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, nor may any law enforcement official invoke superior orders or exceptional circumstances such as a state of war or a threat of war, a threat to national security, internal political instability or any other public emergency as a justification of torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. Law enforcement officials shall respect the law and the present Code. They shall also, to the best of their capability, prevent and rigorously oppose any violations of them. Law enforcement officials who have reason to believe that a violation of the present Code has occurred or is about to occur shall report the matter to their superior authorities and, where necessary, to other appropriate authorities or organs vested with reviewing or remedial power. Briefly on the legal grounds to refuse to participate in a tort these included: irregular judgement the term given to the judgement that is contrary to a practice of the court and is contrary to the mode of procedure that is established. Judicial review is about setting the boundaries of government power. It is about ensuring government officials obey the law and act within their prescribed powers. Access to the courts for the purpose of judicial review is an important common law right.


My safety should have been paramount for years, not an assurance of harassment by paedophile protecting police. No one on this planet should spend decades combating a clear ongoing abuse of power and process - institutional harassment. As a whistle-blower (whistleblowing vulgar sex crimes) my emotional distress levels should have been as much a concern as my safety due to agendas and persons who may benefit from trying to push me to the refuge of suicide. And in my eyes I should never have had to battle the police so to speak, to obtain justice. Personally unless it was a public act of desperation (e.g. suicide on the AFP footsteps writing police names in blood to seek the refuge of suicide) I would not commit suicide so I would be very hard to frame in this circumstance, that said I should not have been being led by governmental and police cover ups into trying to kill myself or even have been concerned about this agenda. Rhetoric from police in conversation has apparently proven this objective. The false incarceration tort from VICPOL they clearly hoped was that straw to push me over the edge. I honestly have no respect for any of these dehumanisers and hate to think about the impacts of their negative decisions within life in general.


Spending years exposed to a corrupt and flawed justice system, suffering from its torture and the emotional distress of experiencing the full system and its vested failures all the way to DPFC has severely increased my PTSD. After days detained at the detention centre (goal/jail) located Honolulu, Hawaii USA I passed through Mascot NSW police station custody and the corrections facility in NSW. Then spent days in G4S in Melbourne before being placed on remand in custody at DPFC. Police used irrelevant inadmissible bails applied by SAPOL resulting in ‘Not Guilty’ outcomes to have the courts refuse bail. Damian Ferrari at the time of his intervention application in 2019 had been reported to VICPOL for sex offending and domestic violence (DV) against myself, he should have been being criminally investigated as well as being investigated by IBAC of Victoria as I reported to Alyx Gray. Instead my statement was exploited by VICPOL, with the IBAC report made by Alyx Gray and later myself not preventing Damian Ferrari’s abuse of power or resulting in him being charged at this time for DV and rape. VICPOL allowing the malfeasance at the tax payers expense to be spent on years of torts engaged by a bitter, bald detective in Horsham Victoria, Mathew Olsten who worked hard to help cover up for a VICPOL police officer guilty of domestic violence and sex offending. Mocking up over sixty charges and numerous warrants to solidify the incarceration tort. Many other VICPOL police officers willing to ‘tow the line of VICPOL’ allowing the torts to continue. Attitudes which create divide in society as hate breeds hate.


It was a very confronting experience being placed in DPFC. The prison environment exposed me to guards (ex cops) stealing from inmates, bullying inmates, dehumanising, sexual relations between staff and inmates, stealing money from shops, forging inmates signatures, medication discrepancies and many other concerns.

The property staff and management took 5 days to provide my very large property list to which near all items were mis-listed as poor quality when I had recent receipts proving the items were of New quality. Many items were not listed and upon the return of my property much of it was missing. Over $3000.00 of damaged and stolen goods including pages missing from my passport which is a federal crime to deface. In Victoria damage of this level of cost is also a criminal, not a civil offence. The police and staff involved needed to be individually charged or face criminal charges of theft.

I was engaged to American citizen Travis Paul Enmon at the time, I had packed many items of personal, sentimental value, new clothing and shoes plus new cosmetics, perfumes and other luxuries to survive at least 3 months. I had applied in 2019 to work for the FBI, letting go of the thought that the organisation was honest after it was clear that Christopher Wray was willing to breach privacy laws (illegally, with no good operational objective I could see anyway) which his predecessor James Comey was not so easily persuaded to do. Though concerned about the Integrity of the place (while in Rome) I intended to visit the FBI New York and had contacted the office in New York via phone simply stating I would attend the office upon my arrival. This phone call made in approximately March 2022, prior to my planned Barbwire Noose attendance in NYFW2022 and on the Sustainable Couture Runway Alice Springs, NT, AUS.


DPFC is a tax payer funded facility apparently built on an old rubbish dump inmates rumoured. It is located outside of the Melbourne CBD built in 1996, it was the first privately-owned prison in Victoria, but was transferred to public ownership in the year 2000 run under Corrections Victoria. Tracey Jones has been the General Manager since the year 2000 and was the listed General Manager at the time I was incarcerated. She was apparently away on leave, when I was reporting the abhorrent state and activities of the prison with the acting General Manager as useless as evidently Tracey was to have created such a cesspool culture. More examples of the levels of immorality of DPFC are in the facts that a male claiming he is female (yet has a penis) has raped (and been allowed by staff inmates stated) incarcerated women in the facility like a pet to use and abuse; another example is an ICE addict groomer who was a priority in the facility as her regular incarceration allowed staff to harass inmates using her while she flashed her flat chest at staff during count. There are plenty more examples there that show this facility is psychologically fucked, like a woman who murdered children with a garden tool who uses garden tools daily and paedophiles making kids toys for their rooms, inmates, etc. The place is not a rehabilitation unit, nor will you come out of that shithole better for society. To me DPFC was creating career criminals, showing little remorse in their dehumanisation and no real avenues to assimilate back into society. On face value the facility appears maintained, once your on the inside you know the prison is broadly just a gang of ex cops and guards bitter on life looking out for their best interests first and foremost.

Prior to my incarceration, in 2021 the facility flagged a specific area of focus. It was to apparently address the ongoing problematic workplace culture issues and practices that discourage the reporting of suspected corrupt conduct. Clearly not the real focus, just public fodder, the acting general manager while I was imprisoned blatantly covered up maladministration and criminal conduct where my signature was forged. Signature forgery offence is a fraud offence and the penalties can be severe, including imprisonment. My signature was forged on a shop purchase document filled on the 29th of August 2022 while I was detained in the Swan two unit – aka ‘the slots’. Staff without worry of repercussions committed fraud and misappropriated funds stating they were justified to commit signature fraud as I was in jail. The purchase total with my shopping list choices modified by staff even exceeded my original order, the fraudulent malpractice was theft of my finances also. The Swan two unit at this time was a disgusting unit with the bare minimum provided. You are locked up here as disciplinary action apparently. A cycle of doing the wrong thing by staff going unpunished trying to change those imprisoned, ironic. Evidently the unit where dodgy guards sent prisoners who knew their rights, used phone time to call IBAC and wrote to the ombudsman, as this was the reason for my visit to the slots of DPFC for a few days before being allocated to protection due to media interest and my role as a crown witness. I was starved for eighteen hours of the day in this unit, given less food and was not really given out of cell time. My dietary requirements went unmet and I was given meat meals even when my orders were vegetarian.

The facts of this offence are irrefutable, I was shown a photocopy of the rewritten and falsified document by a female staffer who I reported the malfeasance to on the 30th of September 2022. Just after a senior staff member, Mr Ramsey had just visited myself and apologised for numerous concerns I raised regarding my property, hygiene, nutrition, dehumanising behaviour and safety. And just before guards stated I have no rights and needed to realise I was in prison at their criminal whims.

The culture of DPFC from what I witnessed was that at least thirty to fifty percent of the staff that interacted with me were complicit or had engaged in misconduct against civil rights and/or of a criminal nature. As a crown witness I can commend the facility regarding the separation of myself from mainstream, initiated by Brian Hinkley. This was a responsible decision and did keep me from some of the dangers surrounding being falsely incarcerated. Unfortunately the facility via Joy McDonald and other vindictive staff was told of my crown witness status which in turn made interactions with inmates quickly become questionable. All mainly motivated by seedy old staff power tripping. Some seemingly trying to blame biker groups for the harassment even though my life has never been threatened by bikers. The jail, which served as a regular stay off the streets for some did manage to convince a couple of career criminals to be willing to engage in petty behaviours including trying to inciting fighting.

The prison guards and rules favoured some of the most vile offenders. Paedophiles and child murders provided with the same tools they used for murder to garden recreationally, paedos given wool to make kids toys - it was a sick psychological shit haven. Literally a shit haven. Groomers and ICE addicts flirted with guards and were rewarded for fraternising.


There were six of us in the Elliot unit during my forced stay there. Two of the five other women tried to slag off and shit stir, yet they were not willing to take it further. Leading up to my court date for release, the harassment increased. I recall one of them telling me I would be beaten in mainstream to which I replied are you threatening me, my PTSD finally snapping at her after to much of her niggling. She replied no. Her on the couch, me sitting on the kitchen bench next to the knives. Smart answer considering I felt threatened from her threatening body language which is clearly recorded on cameras as the incident went down in the living area of this unit. Out of a group of 6 girls some of the behaviour was ‘putrid’ as described by others, myself having no prior comparison for the behaviours. Knickers making their way into a kitchen cupboard within days of being present in this shared environment and the psychological games between inmates was in full swing. A girl incarcerated stating the knickers were a replica of a photograph in her phone, believing the stunt was directed at her. One regular ICE addict piece of scum tried to crack onto me, clearly not realising I won’t be converted from the dick – don’t fucking touch me. I swear to god if this shit had gotten too hairy in DPFC this abuse of power and process, false incarceration, would have ended in the loss of a life. I was more than prepared to shove a pen in the neck of anyone who started to not stay in their lane.

Elliot unit was a newly opened old covid unit, the protection unit to which I was assigned on remand and the last unit I seen before VICPOL withdraw over fifty trumped up charges and I was found ‘Not Guilty’. Slapped with a fine for VICPOL’s abuse of the justice system on the fifth of September 2022. DPFC took six hours to process the forms and left me to pay nearly one hundred dollars for a taxi to the hotel where I would reside until I was back to the safety of my vehicle and a roof - necessities I did not have in the state of Victoria.


Being held at DPFC was a traumatic experience enough without further exposures to police aiding and abetting - complicity and common purpose regarding the commission of an offence; sex crimes. The emotional distress from victimisation by many staffers of DPFC plus being exposed to further trauma, had me released from false imprisonment completely traumatised. Breaking down in the taxi which transported me to the emergency house I would reside in until I was able to return to my home state of South Australia.


Torts, the abuse of power and process by VICPOL, a cover up of sex offenders was what saw me dragged across countries and states of Australia to DPFC. The experience was so traumatic, it took over a day for me to play music, my usual pass time and months to feel normal and clean.

First-hand witnessing the destructiveness of Abuse of Power and Process; I strongly believe above all Liberty and Humanity (Human Rights Law) above all must dominate legislation and politics. As we enter the exclusive and boundless possibilities of a digital age we must embrace individualism and morality with grace. The rejection of academic advice provided to the Parliament of Australia in 2008 regarding the South Australian Government of Mike Rann and the Serious Organised Crime Act 2008 is the perfect example of ideals over morality, over Human Rights. Governments given the power to deprive the rights of others has irrefutably proven to be using the legislation in tyranny against the Australian people – draconian law implemented by tyrants. The rights and justice for all is something that needs protecting – relentlessly. I am a strong advocate against dehumanisation and for a Bill of Rights Australia. Dedicated to always advocating for a humane society."

END EXTRACT.


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.


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.

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."
