Seeking my Targets...

in

Kia Ora! and Greetings!

I am seeking contact with people convicted of criminal offences during the early to mid 1970s following drug trials around New Zealand where, as the Crown's principal witness, I lied to the courts and I lied to the juries to obtain those convictions

My full name is Patrick John O'Brien and I am a graduate of the Royal New Zealand Police College — a former sworn constable, undercover police officer and "agent-provocateur" who worked for Criminal Intelligence (C.I.S.) during the 1970s

In November 2007 I wrote to the Chief Justice of New Zealand, Dame Sian Elias, and confessed to falsifying evidence to obtain convictions against my targets while working for the government as an "agent-provocateur"

The government will not help me identify those former targets and I am trying a variety of unorthodox approaches to find them…if this message applies to you, or to anyone you know, please contact me at the following address in the first instance:

x.constable3667@gmail.com

Should any target wish to seek remedy for their damages arising from my perjury I will assist them and/or their legal teams in any way I can

Thank you

Yours sincerely

Patrick John O'Brien
X-Constable 3667

Re: Seeking my Targets...

Paddy,

this is such a joke, no-one in the age-group you're looking for will be watching this forum.
Although the GCSB/SIS will have your number for this!

It's a bit late to start having a conscience now that you've retired and collected your pension, mate.

Try grey-power's website. Or NORML's.
You were conned into falisfying evidence by an authoritarian structure that wanted to see higher conviction rates. How naive are you if you think they'll let you provide evidence of systemic corruption?

Hasn't that past 3 years of action surrounding the corrupt practices of Ex-Asst Police Commissioner Clint Rickards, his crony Dewar, and all the minions who have been bailing out of the forces before they face disciplinary tribunals, registered on your radar at all?

The Police are nothing but scum, determined to control by any corrupt methods possible, and committed to covering up any leaks or bad publicity, never mind criminal behaviour, with impunity.

A femme-inist.

Re: Seeking my Targets...

I was around in the 70s, and I recommend Indymedia to all ages as an alternative and a stroppy coverage of opposition to power.

Since I managed (or was lucky enough) to evade any serious arrest during the 70s, I don't need any expert testimony at a retrial. But I will pass this offer on to others. It needs to be circulated, I think. After all, if anyone is involved in court battles, they're already 'stuck' to a very forceful and harmful mechanism in the apparatus of state power, so may as well use any tactic thats of immediate use, even if its a defeatist long-term strategy. I guess this can be termed a 'harm reduction' logic :-)

As for what cops are like, it must be hard to overcome all that brainwashing and group loyalty stuff, but better late than never. Telling truth to power ... and from the inside, ... seems useful for undermining the public perception of the legitimicy of police power to repress dissent.

Provided that in the process of trying to makes the courts and government acknowledge that cops were trained in corruption as an everyday policing tactic, these same state agencies don't learn more about details and networks than they already know!!

cheers

Re: Seeking my Targets...

Good on you Patrick. Shows theres hope for corrupt cops afterall.

Re: Seeking my Targets...

All coppers are cunts :) and this just proves it

Re: Seeking my Targets...

Thank you Patrick for this offer. I guess you woke up one day and thought "Help I'm a bent cop!" Would that more of the Force did that.

Re: Seeking my Targets...

Femme inist, your attitude is the same bullshit attitude that bent cops display. i say more power to this guy for trying to right some of the wrongs he has done and reduce the occurance of such injustice in future.
If bent cops plead innocence, you're scornful. If bent cops plead guilty and want to make amends, you're scornful. Theres no pleasing some people is there?

Re: Seeking my Targets...

this is just more proof Aotearoa needs to execute NZ "judges" on sight, for these scumbags have known of the police activities and profited immensely from them.
Judge Ian Borrin should be tortured to death.

"All coppers are cunts :) and this just proves it"

"Judge Ian Borrin should be tortured to death."

Geez ease up on the wheatgrass juice mate...

Seeking forgiveness and making amends is the right way to go although destroyed lives sometimes cannot forgive, there can be an element of redemption even without forgiveness.

Re: Seeking my Targets...

Geez ease up on the wheatgrass juice mate...

NO. these pigs and their judge buddies have wrecked lives for fun & profit and sheer glee in causing misery, there is redemption in their suffering only.

Re: Seeking my Targets...

Patrick John O'Brien should be put to death after making a video confession, or given the choice to assassinate the judges who "helped" him and his vile piggery.

Re: Seeking my Targets...

Patrick, hopefully you are still reading this
There are a few cops and private investigators who regularly read this site to gather info on naughty activists. and they tend to do most of the stupid comments on here, including most of the above anonymous ones. good on you for being honest and trying to make amends

Re: Seeking my Targets...

"Should any target wish to seek remedy for their damages arising from my perjury I will assist them and/or their legal teams in any way I can"

Or you may just be on another undercover investigation, trying to extract information from activists. Why should I believe that, after years of lying to people, you are now telling the truth?

Re: Seeking my Targets...

Well considering the fact this chap is after people he offended against over 30 years ago, I think that rules out looking for.....anyone that was not a part of that 30 something years ago.

"NO. these pigs and their judge buddies have wrecked lives for fun & profit and sheer glee in causing misery, there is redemption in their suffering only."

"Patrick John O'Brien should be put to death after making a video confession..."

The thing is Mr Plod, there is no redemption via suffering. To cause suffering is to become your enemy, to become the epitome of your oppressor.

The expose made by Mr O'Brien is no surprise, no new information on police operational tactics were exposed. We already knew the police acted and act in such ways, this is merely a confession from an ex officer who has been involved and participated in typical everyday police tactics, has gone rogue, and has lived to tell about it.

Initially the police and Government would have tried to sweep this under the carpet, but now that he has gone on TV and his story is worldwide they will try to convict him of anything and everything in absentia probably unless he wants to return to NZ and face the music.

"these pigs and their judge buddies have wrecked lives for fun & profit and sheer glee in causing misery, there is redemption in their suffering only."

Unfortunately, some people seem to have been so screwed up by capitalist society, they've come to believe in nothing but being as nasty and cruel as the society they claim to oppose. This is understandable given the steady diet of violent revenge fantasies the media serves up as entertainment and as a deliberate depiction of rebellion that undermines real alternatives, but it's pretty sad too. If we deny hope we might as well give up now.

Re: Seeking my Targets...

I admire your strength to stand up now, when it would be easy to remain quiet.

You have my respect for this act of justice.

I know of a person targeted in such a sting in Christchurch. He didn't smoke pot but passed the undercover cop onto someone that did, resulting in an arredt and imprisonment.

Was this in Christchurch?

what a load of crap, if people who become "judges" knew that corruption and false imprisonment could lead to having their noses cut off with sidecutters, they'd never ever risk wrongfully jailing someone, ever. Instill the samer fear in the jewdiciary as the pigs use against society, experiencing justice for the 1st time would be nice.

Re: Seeking my Targets...

Strange, how some people seem so attracted to torture and mutilation. Why not just kill people if you really believe they are unendurable? Is it because the poster above doesnt want to kill somebody unecessarily? Or is it that the poster doesn't object to the existance of judges, only their decisions? Or is it simply that some nazi went inside recently? I guess the word "jewdiciary" indicates the latter.

In my opinion, its all about fascism. Fascism is based on the principle of fear, of a universal capitalist state of fear, and to this end, torture is more useful than death.

Now (on a side-bend), I think this society is mostly a mix of collectivist, neo-liberal, and neo-fascist aspects. The neo-fascism bit involves the link between the capitalist systems of exploitation and the official systems of domination.

One licit millionaire gangster objected to my saying such stuff in the hearings this week on the high-rise rezoning in New Brighton. He said my presentation on behalf of a marginalised community, against a calculated alliance of property speculators and council officials, was the most disgusting thing he'd ever heard.

And I say, thanks for the positive feedback, I'd be disapointed if my truth didn't hit power where it hurts. In its legitimicy.

Neo-fascist proponents like to disguise their programme in double-speak, sort of like a layer of ecological and democratic pavlova on top of shit-cake. After 1984, they don't have to 'surge' into power, they just have to reinforce 'business as normal'. So they 'slide', aligning partly with markets (neo-liberalism) and partly with democracy (collectivism), but always trying to arrange forms of privatisation that lock into forms of official state support. Its not full-on fascism, 1930's style, but it sure seems like an NZ form of neo-fascism.

So in some ways its useful to have a reminder, as in the above post, that the old un-reconstructed fascist principle of unending torture and fear is still around, and still wanting Judges, so long as they obey their rulers. The rulers with the side-cutters.

Though of course, that whole post could be spurious. Perhaps it should be side-cut ;-)

[now even I'm doing it! Its addictive! Even more than a hair-style!]

Re: Seeking my Targets...

People have different experiences with the judiciary system and with police thuggery. There is a big chasm between ranting about kicking some cop or judge in the cranial and actually carrying out such an act. The plod will try to say that one leads to the other. We all know its just venting ur verbal spleen.

And the death penalty stops all crime...

Re: Seeking my Targets...

Re: Seeking my Targets...

""""the death penalty kills people, often innocent people.""""",,,,,, ya, but ya never see dirty judges or murderous pigs in the dock, the death penalty, or any other penalty is only for the little people.
