It’s getting harder every day to justify paying for an RCMP that does nothing. Their excuses for taking no action in this case are crap. Oh this is total BS…the RCMP have a confession on TAPE…what more do they need??????? Two B.C. people who are victims of identity theft are speaking out in frustration with the justice system. Because you know who it is — and you have the proof that you need — and nothing happens.” because it’s been such a time delay — the statute of limitations on certain crimes means I am on the hook for everything.” “[Identity theft and fraud] is a level of crime that you don’t know about until it is too late it seems.. He filed his first report with the RCMP at that time. Gorst said he was told it was a matter for his bank to handle.. it is “common” for police to be unable to make charges stick in identity theft cases. The crimes are intricate and often hidden for long periods, with the help of technology. What a travesty of our justice system. And I thought Harper was getting tough on crime. Well, it’s all just grandstanding because he really hasn’t done anything. What’s the point in tougher jail sentences when you can’t even charge someone? They reported the case to the RCMP? In British Columbia, you say? Well, that explains it all, doesn’t it? Anyone else wonder why it’s so hard for the little people to get justice? Clearly they are not in the wrong yet the authorities and credit companies will use them as scape goats since the real criminals cant be brought in. It is obvious the system does not work in our favour as it should. Disgusting! The victim did not apply for this credit, did not receive any benefit from it, and followed the rules. I wouldn’t pay a damn cent. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2009/09/28/bc-identitytheft.html ”
“Identity theft and fraud are not listed as specific crimes in the Criminal Code, putting Canada behind the U.S. and Europe”. IT TAKES A mere FOOL TO SAY THAT NOW TOO.. EVERYONE KNOWS IT IS WRONGFUL THEFT.. DEAL WITH IT NOW!
A Policeman is a really great person,
till one day you really do need his services,
and often next do hear the false excuses
as to why they cannot help you..
cause they are too busy,
mostly helping themselves it seems..
THEY WERE MOSTLY PRETENDING
THEY WERE SERVING THE CITIZENS
Now why does this also remind me
of many of our leaders, politicians too?
OTTAWA – A new report says the federal government’s feeble efforts to stop violence against native women should shock Canadians. Amnesty International says Ottawa must get to the heart of why more than 500 native women have vanished or been murdered in the last 30 years. The report says federal cash for studies and sensitivity training for police has not stopped the attacks. Amnesty urges Ottawa to produce a national action plan to co-ordinate standard police investigations and fund victim services. The United Nations has also called on Ottawa to look into why the deaths and disappearances of hundreds of native women are unsolved.
If the government wants to get tough on crime, as it purports, it should go after the real criminals. Drunk, impaired drivers too. NOT RATHER PERSONS LIKE Jane Raham. She was the 62-year-old grandmother convicted of stunt driving near Kingston last year after trying to pass a tractor-trailer. “If one were to describe a stunt driver, the appellant would not immediately spring to mind,” the judge said. Yet Raham, who faced the possibility of up to six months in jail, was considered guilty regardless of mitigating circumstances and had no chance to defend herself in court because stunt driving is an “absolute liability” offence. This was, is uancceptable police state justice
The truth is the Police do not bother with the small crimes, except revenue generating traffic tickets traffic , POLICE ABUSE THE the peanuts citizens, for they tend to like pretend they go after the big crimes where they can get noticed and promoted instead.. BUT they are not successful in catching the big criminals THOUGH.
Coquitlam RCMP officer charged for drunk driving. A B.C. RCMP officer has been charged with impaired driving after being stopped by members of his own detachment on his way from the Boulevard Casino in Coquitlam early Friday morning. The officer was released from custody on a promise to appear in a Port Coquitlam court on Jan. 10, 2010. The name of the officer has not been released, but police did say he has been moved to administrative duties pending the completion of the criminal investigation and a parallel internal investigation. Drunk driving is beyond stupid… *Especially* when it’s a cop. I just can’t understand why anyone would drive drunk. Especially a police officer. What the hell is wrong with these people? Not good. Way too much of this going on. The RCMP and police forces in general are really losing respect and credibility. This stuff sure doesn’t help. at least they didn’t try cover it up…yet. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2009/09/25/bc-coquitlam-rcmp-impaired-driving.html
CP TORONTO – A Toronto police investigator in the traffic services division has been charged for allegedly fleeing the scene of a crash after giving only his first name. Police say they were called to a two-car collision on Toronto’s busy Gardiner expressway just after 1 p.m. on Saturday. Police say a motorist in one vehicle exited the expressway and stopped along with the other car and was then approached by a passenger from the second car, who said the police had been called. When the motorist in the first car was asked his name, he allegedly replied “Paul,” and drove off. Det. Const. Paul Higgins, 49, was charged with failing to stop after an accident Sunday and will appear in Toronto court Nov. 10. Higgins has been serving on the force for 24 years and currently works for the traffic services’ investigative unit. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090928/national/traffic_cop_charged
Hypocrisy. The police too readily do not mind investigating others but do not like it when they are on the receiving end..
Double dipping. Police dip into victims’ cash TORONTO STAR Sep 29, 2009 04:30 AM 41 victim cash award decisions by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board in the last three months of 2008, but the incidents in question occurred from 1999 onwards. Taxpayers paid $1.5 million to officers hurt on job out of coffers meant for civilians A police officer received $10,000 as compensation because he can no longer enjoy gardening, visiting flea markets and collecting carnival glass. Another officer was awarded $1,000 after a suspect bit his arm but not hard enough to break the skin. A third broke a finger while making an arrest and received $6,500 after he claimed the fracture led to arthritis and a lower quality of life. A provincial fund that compensates civilians victimized by violent crime is routinely and increasingly paying “pain and suffering” cash awards to police officers who suffer minor injuries on the job. Workplace insurance already compensates these injured officers. A Toronto Star investigation has found that since 2005, more than 400 officers and prison guards across Ontario received a total of $1.5 million from the taxpayer-funded Criminal Injuries Compensation Board (CICB). The board released 10 per cent of its decisions to the Star, and an analysis shows the officers who receive the cash often return to full duties, carrying a gun. A Star analysis shows the number of payouts and the average amount of each award have risen dramatically over the past four years. The amount of money given annually to officers has more than doubled since 2005, with $623,000 awarded in 2008. The number of payouts has also jumped, from 92 in 2005 to 137 last year. That’s a 49 per cent increase. “I’m absolutely appalled,” said Dr. Leslie Balmer, a Peel Region psychologist who counsels families of murder victims. “I thought this is a fund … for victims of crime, not police officers … doing their job.” Alan Young, law professor and author of a 2003 report on victim compensation systems across Canada, said: “I am somewhat shocked by the audacity that police forces feel they can tap into money that (is not) intended to assist them. It seems like this is double-dipping going on.” Toronto Police Service employees top the list with 133 cash awards since 2005. Ontario Provincial Police is second with 71. Peel Regional Police is next with 25. Ottawa Police ranked fourth with 20. The forerunner of the current law, the 1967 Law Enforcement Compensation Act, was meant to compensate civilians injured while assisting police, like the widow of Jack Blanc, a Toronto resident who was killed helping police try to stop a bank bandit. Over the years the law changed and has become widely known as a fund for civilian victims of violent crime who lose wages or suffer out-of-pocket expenses. It is now the Compensation for Victims of Crime Act. Ottawa Police Chief Vern White said ”I am surprised. I always thought it was for civilian victims.” http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/article/702444
“The police force and prison guards have a very strong union. They have unbelievably strong benefits. They have additional resources that ordinary citizens do not have if they are injured by violent crime,” The Police have abused the system. By the shear results, percentages alone, the police have falsely taken advantages over the citizens, victims of crime.. “Police have the same right as any other citizen to apply for compensation if they have been the victim of a crime.” but the Police have unfair advantage they have an inside track, and free legal counsel as well.. paid by the taxpayers.. all clearly an abuse of what was definitely meant for all of the citizens. The Ontario government undeniably allows the false abuse of the system BY THE POLICE again too..
Now 40 percent of persons do not trust cops? My opinion of cops went much lower when I myself had actually tried to use their services in reality. Many people also undeniably now blame the cops for the existence of the much too many crooked white collared crimes, business persons, and bad stockbrokers, bad civil and public servants in reality
Mr. Robert Dziekanski did not deserve to die but he died because incompetent, immoral RCMP police officers neglected their training and obligation to the public, clearly acted excessively and in haste, and wrongfully escalated almost instantly to the conducted energy Taser weapon, had killed an innocent man in the process. The four RCMP officers on the scene had wrongfully overreacted to the situation before them. An innocent man died as a result of their misjudgment and excessive use of force. ”
Their after-incident reports at the time disagree with the video evidence and, more damagingly, with their sworn statements to the Braidwood commission. They each claimed Mr. Dziekanski refused to co-operate with them, although the video evidence seems to indicate he, being a non-speaker of English, was complying the best he could with commands they gave by gesture. And while they insisted he became “combative,” picked up a stapler to use as a weapon and lunged at them, none of that is supported in the video recordings. More damning for me was what the officers told paramedics on the scene. While the officers had jolted Mr. Dziekanski five times with their Taser, they informed paramedics they had stunned the blue-faced, convulsive, breathless victim only once, a possible sign that even then they knew they had done something wrong and were preparing a common cover story.”
And ever since, their RCMP superiors also falsely have been attempting to cover up their blameworthiness. They tried to block a comprehensive video taken at the scene from being made public. They resisted an inquiry, whitewashed their own findings and, as we learned this week, kept 18,000 documents — some highly damaging — from being seen by the formal inquiry and from the public. These great unacceptable transgressions — the attempts also by the brass to keep the truth from coming out — is the basic managerial problem now plaguing the once-proud national police force. It confirms the massive institutional rot and corrosive culture at all of the echelons of the RCMP. An RCMP formal apologize for its role in all this is not enough. All Mounties who helped perpetrate a cover-up should be sacked.
50 percent of persons do not trust the clergy? OR Funeral directors or accountants
ACTUALLY IF YOU NEXT DO SPEND ONE DAY WORKING DIRECTLY WITH A CLERGY YOUR OPINION MIGHT SIGNIFICANTLY WORSEN, FOR I KNOW MINE ALWAYS HAS.
- Majority of persons do not trust : Journalists, Labour union leaders , Provincial government officials, Building contractors , Lawyers , Bankers , Real estate agents, MPP’s/MLA’s , Car salespeople , Business executives , Stockbrokers. Politicians known to be as bad as the used car salesmen
THERE ARE NO SURPRISES HERE FOR WE SEEM TO ALSO THINK MOST OF THESE PEOPLE CAN BE EASILY BOUGHT OR WILL SELL THEMSELVES FOR MONEY
And with all the latest recession, Ponzi scandals it is not surprising that the Business executives and Stockbrokers are not trustworthy .
And most PEOPLE STILL DO THINK THAT ALL CEOs ARE SIGNIFICANTLY OVERPAID.. and even the University administrators…

It has always confounded me as to why the crooks, abusers too often do still do think they can get away with now, next and forever.
FOR WE TEND TO KNOW THAT THEY THE CROOKS, ABUSERS TOO, NOW ARE NOT ABOUT TO STOP THEIR WRONG DOINGS. RATHER THEY WILL NEXT EVEN ESCALATE, CONTINUE IN THEM. AND THAT IS ANOTHER VALID REASON THEY DO NEED TO BE EXPOSED, PROSECUTED AND STOPPED. EVEN FOR THE GOOD OF US ALL.
Decades AND DECADES LATER NOW Feds set new credit card rules Among the requirements, lenders must obtain express consent for credit limit increases, provide a summary box on statements to describe all fees, and put limits on debt collection practices. The new regulations will be largely in effect as of Jan. 1, 2010. Once again the government fails to protect the consumer. The Liberals under Chretian threatened to limit creditcard interest rates years ago but wimped out and the Conservatives are following suit. http://www.cbc.ca/money/story/2009/09/30/flaherty-credit.html
- Ah yes .. restoring our faith and trust in the RCMP. And we need to give Vic Toews, Peter Van Loan and Stockwell Day all a big “high-five” for their prudent oversight of this department.
- Sigh .. the incompetence we see exposed every day now just seems to defy credibility. And the spectacle of the G-8/20 is still to unfold. Sorry to repeat, but .. sigh.
- Perfectly in line with the Harper “hide it at all costs” approach !
- It’s a shame, really, to see a police force that was once so respected to become the obnoxious, wasteful, and arrogant beast it is today. I respected the RCMP as a youth, but that is no longer the case.
- RCMP you can apologize every time but we know u don’t mean it.
-This is an example of a police force gone wild. It is answerable to no one. It is about time we bring these police forces under control. They seem to want more powers by the day. No way. If they got their way there would be a curfew from dawn to dusk and we would be asked at every turn “your papers please”Read more: http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2010/05/29/rcmp-computer-cost-report.html
