Australian institutions members are subject to codes of conduct and the "ends justify the means " is not a defence.
With indulgence of the moderator I would like to expand the topic to include differences in the American Culture to the Australian Culture and why the Government initially got into such a mess in NSW.
The basic related cultural differences between the two countries in general and in relation to Greyhound Racing stems from the different times that the countries came under European occupation.
The New world opened in the late 16th century and New South Wales (Australia) was settled around the time that America got its independence and Greyhound Racing (Coursing) became public (late 18th Century).
Australia was essentially under British Law in the Commonwealth through the Appeal rights to the English Privy Council until 1975 (Federal) and later in 1980’s.
The fundamental difference in the cultures allowed the massive take up in Australia of Coursing early in comparison to the USA.
The fundamental difference in our two cultures appears to be the fundamental differences between Prohibition and Moderation. This divide has religious cultural roots as well.
The banning of the Communist Party in 1950’s was found to be unconstitutional by our high court and the referendum to allow the constitution to be amended was defeated by the people. This did not mean that the Country turned communist as feared by the American press but it was simply an expression of the Australian people and their abhorrence off prohibition.
The American Prohibition of Alcohol (The Noble Experiment 1919 - 1933) did not lead to the country being alcohol free and animal welfare will not be guaranteed by extreme actions.
