Too typical RCMP – NOVA.SCOTIA (CBC) – The lawyer for a Nova Scotia native band says a Halifax Regional Police investigation into the shooting death of a Cape Breton fisherman missed key evidence in the case. Gary Richard, the lawyer for the Wagmatcook First Nation, gave transcripts of interviews to the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, and said they provide key information about the fatal police shooting of John Simon. “The investigation that led to critical decisions on whether charges would be laid, or disciplinary action taken, was incomplete and even in some respects indifferent,” The band has been calling for a public inquiry into the 2008 death of Simon. RCMP Const. Jeremy Frenette was called to Simon’s house on Dec. 2, 2008. He climbed through a window to deal with an allegedly drunk, suicidal and armed Simon and ended up shooting him dead. Halifax Regional Police, who were called in to investigate, determined that Frenette ignored a supervisor’s directive to stay put, but said the officer didn’t break any laws and acted in self-defence. The report concluded that Simon had threatened Frenette with a rifle. The report quoted Frenette as saying, “I felt he was gonna shoot me.” On Thursday, Richard said that a medical first responder from the reserve was among the first on the scene after Simon was shot, and she told band investigators that she didn’t see a rifle anywhere near Simon as he lay bleeding on the floor. “Again, this is immediately after the shooting,” Richard said. “There was no evidence of a firearm, even though she looked very carefully for her own safety. “It’s a shocking omission from the report.” That first responder, Elizabeth Googoo, confirmed in a telephone interview with CBC News that she did not see a rifle at the scene. Googoo said during the police investigation, she felt pressured by the officers to say she saw a gun in the room. “To me it seemed like they wanted me to say that the gun was somewhere but I didn’t see it,” she said. “It’s like they wanted me to say that the gun was in the room but like I said, I swear I even told them, ‘I swear I didn’t see the gun.’” Kevin Brosseau, director of operations for the CPC, said he would consider the evidence brought forward by the band. “We’ll want to get a look at all information that’s relevant to this incident. Background could be relevant, it could be helpful. I’ll have to look at their submissions,” he said. “I’ve just been handed a number of documents. I’ve yet to look at them. I’ll consider them and I’ll be able to report on that later on.” The band claims the investigation that cleared Frenette of any wrongdoing was deeply flawed. The CPC will look into how the RCMP handled the incident. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100610/canada/canada_novascotia_ns_wagmatcook_rcmp_commission
Me I ask rightfully STILL EVEN for the RCMP to catch and convict the murderous Taser persons at the Vancouver Airport. by even an alcoholic RCMP it seems http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/11/11/no-rcmp-alcoholics-it-seems/
Not that child porn would be unique in this regard: police regularly overstate the value of drugs and cigarettes they seize.
While most of the Police according to some persons are supposedly upstanding members willing to respect Canada’s constitutional history, some are clearly not, in fact they are in reality too often racists, cause they are admittedly mostly white persons still too, and in the end one rotten apple will spoil the rest anyway. And most police work in is necessarily done in secret and with no full oversight thus with the rise of para-militarism in Canadian police forces and the rapidly growing false police disdain of any civilian oversight I also do rightfully think it is dangerous to simply to leave the police alone or even to take what the police say at face value –I would severely discipline any police subordinate who broke the rules of engagements, rules of fairness, respect, decency, and we all should even seek discipline against any superior who did so too. Why would we allow any police member to get away with now still too?
The RCMP is supposedly now aggressively tackling organized crime in B.C too. According to the RCMP Public relationship propaganda department too, because if they the RCMP now did not write a report about it, it all now still would not be obvious to most people who wonder what the cops are even doing now most of the time, besides giving out money generating traffic traffic tickets, the report does not indicate the number of bad people actually successfully prosecuted each year for the millions of dollars already spend on the related police man-hours now too? nor does the same RCMP report indicate the cost of the useless police enforcement per year in comparison now to the actual successful prosecutions? The police Canada wide now also would like you to believe that less people are getting caught for drunk driving now as well, even though the number of people getting drunk, becoming impaired is increasing each year too, but the accuracy of the police report now itself depends on whether the police do even bother to try to catch the drunk drivers or where they still they are too busy writing the traffic tickets for speeding. even though speeding still is not a major cause of car accidents to start of with too.
Friday, 22 August 2008 The Criminal Intelligence Service Canada (CISC) released the 2008 report on organized crime today in Montreal. Sgt. Tim Shields of the RCMP in B.C. made the following comments regarding organized crime in this province: “In British Columbia, the illicit marihuana industry alone is estimated at $6 billion per year. This figure does not include revenue from the sale of crystal meth, cocaine and heroin, and from identity theft, credit card fraud, prostitution, gun smuggling, human trafficking, and money laundering — all of which are traditional activities for organized crime groups. But even more alarming is the violent crime associated to organized crime such as shootings in public places, kidnappings and the murders of innocent people. “Members of organized crime groups are not law abiding citizens — they don’t play by the rules our communities live by. Their greed supersedes all the laws and values that we as a society embrace. Normal law-abiding citizens consider the impact of their behaviors and actions; these people don’t. They think nothing of selling drugs to our children, taking advantage of our elderly or opening fire in our neighbourhoods. “What are police doing about it? In B.C. – a great deal. Today there are more than 17 police units and government agecies actively working together to combat organized crime. If you are aware of organized crime activities, call your local police, call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. Calling the police can too often be a waste of time cause they the police too often still are even falsely selective as to the type of work next that they are willing to undertake and they might next ask you to freely help to do their own paid Jobs, and yes the same that they are being paid for !

The Braidwood Inquiry into the Taser-related death of Robert Dziekanski has been blown up and left in ruins by the revelation a key RCMP e-mail was withheld from the commission. After months of outrage about the conduct of the four Mounties who responded to Vancouver Airport Oct. 14, 2007, who can believe that at the last minute, a federal lawyer would produce what many would consider a smoking gun — an e-mail saying the officers decided to use the Taser before confronting the Polish immigrant? If true, the Nov. 5, 2007, e-mail titled “Media strategy — release of the YVR video,” from RCMP Chief Supt. Dick Bent to assistant commissioner Al McIntyre, establishes the four have been lying through their teeth. This critical document suggests the four officers committed perjury and that senior officers sat silent while they did so. Worse, it seems there are many other documents that have not been turned over that may be relevant. This e-mail was one of 260 documents on a CD sent by the RCMP to the justice department last April, yet the federal lawyers didn’t open the CD until last week.. Commissioner William Elliott’s carefully parsed press release was equally unbelievable: “This was simply an oversight. Unfortunately in an exercise of this magnitude, such an oversight can occur.” Bollocks. No one but a moron overlooks the import of an e-mail like this. The officers deny the explosive content is true and Roberts says Bent was wrong in what he said. But their protestations ring hollow after almost 18 months of bluster and denial. So does Elliott’s threadbare these-things-happen excuse. The situation is as bad as the most virulent critics of the Mounties feared. This is no longer about four officers who made mistakes in judgment: It’s about an organization that thinks it is above the law. .It is time to thank commissioner Braidwood for his excellent work in bringing these unsettling facts to light and it’s time to appoint a special prosecutor. The B.C. Law Society should also begin an investigation into the conduct of Roberts and any other federal lawyer involved in this staggering lack of disclosure. That was not an “oversight.” It was professional incompetence or a cover-up. http://www.vancouversun.com/Mounties+Tasering+should+face+prosecution/1716660/story.html
Don’t cut education. Don’t cut social services. Don’t cut public safety. Don’t And whatever you do, cut government workers, aides, politicians out of town travel, related expenses, alcoholic entertainments too
NOW WE FIND OUT THAT THE RCMP management clearly lied, also to blame.. Mounties read through 1,000 internal e-mails preparing for inquiry AND HID SOME FROM THE INQUIRY AS WELL..
“RCMP’s communication strategy ultimately failed. The force did not publicly correct inaccuracies or defend its role in the case, fearing that information might alter witnesses’ recollection of events. Police also believed, the report said, that public opinion would switch to supporting the RCMP after all the facts were known. We found neither argument valid,” the report said. “For deeply rooted systemic reasons and long-held views regarding the importance of due process, the RCMP’s management of issues and communications were lacking and caused many of the problems the organization was trying to avoid.”We therefore recommend that clear, precise guidelines about what can be released, and at what point in the investigation, be developed, and that these guidelines be based on a liberal view of releasing information.” http://www.canada.com/News/Mounties+read+through+internal+mails+preparing+inquiry/1714755/story.html
“The “Wayne” to whom Chief Supt. Bent presumably is referring in the e-mail is Supt. Wayne Rideout, the head of the integrated homicide investigation team into Mr. Dziekanski’s death who admitted under oath at the commission that he had lied to public as to the circumstances of the incident. Supt. Rideout publicly claimed that Mr. Dzienkanski had been Tasered twice, when in fact the man had been hit with the stun gun at least five times. He also claimed the officers had to wrestle the man to the ground because the first shot had no discernible effect, when in fact video evidence is clear that the distraught would-be immigrant from Poland fell quickly after he was first zapped. The absolutely sickening thing about this entire episode is that were it not for a bystander with a camera phone who had the presence of mind to videotape the conduct of the four officers, their lies, evasions and concocted story might have worked to let Mr. Dziekanski’s death be explained away. Commission counsel Art Vertlieb is absolutely justified when he observed Friday that this delayed disclosure raises questions about whether the RCMP has actually shared everything in its files that Mr. Braidwood needs to do the job.” http://www.thestarphoenix.com/Dziekanski+probe+turns+into+fiasco+RCMP+bungles/1716292/story.html
Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. had just returned from a trip overseas and, upon arriving at the property with a driver, found his front door jammed and had to force it open. By the time police arrived at the house, he and the driver had managed to get inside the property. According to police, Prof Gates shouted at the officer and accused him of racial bias. Police Officers were called to Prof Gates’s house after a woman reported seeing two black males – the professor and his driver – trying to force entry. Prof Gates was still falsely arrested outside his home after providing the officer with identification. The US president has said police acted “stupidly”,” the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home”, the police should never have arrested him. He added that African-Americans and Hispanics in the United States have long been familiar with racial profiling by law enforcement.. “And even when there are honest misunderstandings, the fact that blacks and Hispanics are picked up more frequently, and often time for no cause, casts suspicion, even when there is good cause.” US President Obama Prof Gates has said he was “outraged” by the arrest and called the officer, Sgt James Crowley, a “rogue policeman”. Sgt Crowley has refused to apologize. During the confrontation between the two men, the 58-year-old professor reportedly said: “This is what happens to black men in America.” The police department did not respond to requests for comment
and you can add to that the Natives now as well… EVEN IN Canada

NOT EVERYONE HAS A HIGH REGARD FOR THE POLICE, RCMP IN CANADA, Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, etc.
Hidden agendas, the world is full of it, many people have hidden agendas, Ministers, politicans, cops too. Sadly some people they tend present their own “facts,” but fall short in truthfulness for they tend to falsely have a hidden agenda, and often they want to be falsely personally worshipped and live in sin too.
