While we are busy stamping out bullying in schools , it is very much alive and regularly practiced in the real world.
The most common type of Bullying I see is where a lawyer makes a demand for something and expects compliance with the demand because he knows that it would be uneconomical for the other party not to comply.
It is a bit like a game of Poker the person with the money can make the demands because the party with the best hand usually being the truth and the integrity , is often in a situation where they cannot afford to pay to protect the truth and has to withdraw because the stress the ridiculous associated court costs are simply not worth it.
This would not happen if Lawyers were held accountable to any claim they made or threatened to make. I see this so often people create any kind of document or allegation and “ sanitize” it through a lawyer.
Because the lawyer is an officer of the court and must not mislead the court , it is assumed that the lawyer has checked out and asserted the truth behind the matter. In reality this does not occur.
So when a lawyers letter arrives people panic and think that they are about to be sued. They comply with the demands just to make the issue go away. If they do not role over the lawyer initiates action , this brings about costs for the other party for many thousands of dollars . In my mind this is bullying.
I have a simple solution I stand up to bullying and by using the law address the issue. Lawyers are not law enforcers , they are simply a weapon employed by bullies as a tool for bullying , effectively they are nothing but a base ball bat used to beat the other party into submission.
of course this is all done in the name of justice and in a manner which prevents the freedom of speech and the ability for us to warn any one about those in our society who are actively seeking to rip others off.
It is therefore my sincere opinion that the officers of the court those who are supposed to be seeking justice are actually facilitating and assisting criminal activities by siding with the bad guys and not checking out their facts before they act.
It has also been my experience that for many lawyers Justice is the last thing on their mind , and far too many are driven by nothing more than the all mighty $$$$.
One of the rules for lawyers and solicitors is that they must not allow their practice to be used for fraud, But when they don’t check the facts and defend their client no matter what they are often the catalyst which facilitates fraud but they are pretty safe as The Police appear to be loathed to take action against lawyers and the Law society protects their own.
When I was a police officer we had to act according to the law, I just wonder why this does not apply to lawyers , instead they misapply and misuse the law to scare people into submission
The truth is that by the very nature of crime the Bad guys have far greater propensity to pay for lawyers than the good guys who are slogging away for a wage and don’t have $500 per week to spare let alone $500 per hour for a lawyer.
This kind of puts an imbalance on things and tips justice and integrity of our society out of kilter. .. and the bad guy benefits from their action.
For that reason I do not give in to bullying and I stand up for my rights because if we don’t stand up for the right to warn others of criminals and their methods of offending then we all lose.
The recommendations on the FIX web site are dubious , many of the recommendations are anonymous and at least one of the recommendations from “ Paul Ashcroft“ is from a name which Mr Mann has been known to use himself.
Jonathon Mann alias Jonathon Macdonald has convictions for Fraud and has assumed a number of careers including Physiotherapy which he has convictions for.
The product IHO Fix is trademarked under pharmaceutical and medicinal preparations but is not listed on the medsafe web site which has to be a worry in itself.
