Although he rightfully had lost his job as Ontario’s top police officer…
Nov 30, 2010- VAUGHAN, Ont. – “Ontario’s former top police officer, Julian Fantino, won a federal by election victory for the Tories . He supports Prime Minister Stephen Harper in his battle to scrap the federal gun registry, calling it an “obscene waste of taxpayer money.” The Vaughan riding, which is just north of Toronto and is home to a large Italian community, had been held by the Liberals since 1988. Fantino, himself an Italian immigrant, Fantino garnered 19,260 votes — 49.1 per cent of the vote. A career cop, Fantino rose through the ranks of the Toronto police and served as police chief there, in London, Ont., and York Region — which includes Vaughan — and later served as commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police. Fantino came to Canada from Italy at the age of 10. In 1969, the 27-year-old Fantino became a cadet with the Toronto Police Service. He later became a beat cop, working his way up through the ranks to undercover officer, homicide detective and division commander before his times at the helm of the Toronto, York Region and London, Ont., forces. But his storied law enforcement career was not without its share of controversy. Some of his most dogged opponents accuse him of enforcing two-tier justice in favour of aboriginals in Caledonia, Ont., the site of a long-running native occupation. Fantino was recently embroiled in a messy internal disciplinary hearing that stretched over two years and saw him accused of vindictiveness and witness tampering. The hearing came to an abrupt close last year when police prosecutors dropped misconduct charges against the two officers named in the case. Critics called for his dismissal after wiretapped conversations between Fantino and Ontario aboriginal activist Shawn Brant about First Nations blockades were released. They indicated Fantino told Brant he would do everything he could to “destroy” Brant’s reputation. In 1989, when he was a staff inspector, he apologized after releasing statistics suggesting black people commit most of the crime in Toronto’s Jane-Finch neighbourhood. He stood by his decision to release the data to a race relations committee, but said his mistake was to do so without knowing a reporter was present.” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101130/national/fed_byelxns_fantino
Julian Fantino HAD LIED AS TO THE REASONS MANY PEOPLE HAVE CAR ACCIDENTS, HE SAID FALSELY IT WAS SPEEDING AND HE LEFT OUT ALCOHOL AND WHY? TOO MANY COPS ARE ALCOHOLICS? As a police chief he should have known the truth… that speeding is a money making generator and not the major cause of car accidents, impaired driving, road rage are the major causes of car accidents still.
Toronto Police Chief Lies Again To Frame Protesters http://www.prisonplanet.com/toronto-police-chief-lies-again-to-frame-protesters.html
“”A few bad apples.” That’s how former Toronto police chief Julian Fantino described the force’s problems when six former officers were charged with conspiring to beat and rob drug dealers of hundreds of thousands of dollars. The officers, all members of Team 3 of the Toronto Police Service’s Central Field Command drug squad, are still awaiting trial after almost six years. “I am deeply saddened and disappointed,” Fantino told a news conference in January 2004, commenting about the charges against the six. “I can, however, tell you that the allegations are isolated and confined.” His comments came at the conclusion of an internal probe headed by RCMP Chief Supt. John Neily into the allegations or wrongdoing, which led to 40 criminal charges against the officers.
But police documents that surfaced for the first time this week in a Toronto lawsuit show anti-corruption investigators repeatedly briefed Fantino about similar allegations against other drug officers. These warnings came several months before Fantino made public assurances that alleged wrongdoing was isolated to Team 3 of the drug squad. A joint CBC News/Toronto Star investigation has found that Toronto police did not allow Neily and his team to complete their investigation into those allegations.
“Truth Honesty , justice, Integrity, where have you flown where are you gone, when alas did u die “ ”Dear God, must we find corruption at every turn? I recently welcomed my first child into this world, and whenever I look into his face, I get sad.” ”I don’t think this is anything new, unfortunately.” ”This is what the war on drugs gets you. Too much money and there is temptation that will corrupt honest men. It happens to Judges, Crown Attournies, Prison guards, Border guards, Airport security and many others. When will we learn?” “ People across Canada are disillusioned with the police forces. We don’t trust them because men at the top of their brotherhoods care nothing for the people they are sworn to protect. Their concern is to protect cops from facing the justice they deserve.” ” Come to think of it, even the Judges are corrupt, especially the ones in Traffic Court! Just take a look at the Judges’ Offices at Christmas time and watch the number of Turkeys and Bottles of Booze being delivered to the Judges Chambers at Old City Hall! Don’t believe me? Take your video camera down there, or better yet, your Cell ‘Phone, and record it.” “ police forces are like most every other brotherhood in existence, be it the military or street gangs. Covering one another’s butt is the code they live by, like it or not. And if you are in the ‘gang’ you’d best abide if you plan on sticking around. To ‘serve and protect’ applies as much to themselves as it does to the ruling establishment. ” “We Canadians are a trusting and appreciative lot and worship the ground they walk on. No surprise that secretive and self-serving police cultures persist and flourish. I doubt that we will ever see a successful prosecution on these charges or any other against our police until the public demands better ethical standards for the police that match Canadian ideals.” “If there was ever a need for a public inquiry this is it.” ”
This is the result of past bad Housekeeping.. Nothing that a good sweeping cannot clean, solve..
We rightfuly seem to hold the police in Canada as one of the lowest forms of indequate personnel..
Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.
People in leadership office do have to face higher penalties as an example now too. It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included are always to be exemplary in behavior, conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary judged, prosecuted for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks. Too many police officers are now too often guilty of their most serious neglect of public trust and their duty. The related truth is that neither an independent police investigation, a new police commissioner, a promised provincial or federal investigation, or just more politicians promises too often still will not bring the much needed justice. All of the governments can prohibit the initial and further employment of any known racists for any jobs, and can punish them for their racists acts, views.
Police managers continue to promise the reforming of bad cops and the bad cops keep killing, abusing innocent persons. The possible retaining of bad police officers is always anyway a false myth. What thus is always needed is the real the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty cops. So where is it? Speeding is not the main cause of car accidents, impaired driving is, but too many cops are alcoholics it seems who wrongfully do sympathize with drunks and as a result do not arrest drunks all year.
It is always the same old problem, Professionals, civil and Public servants, Doctors and medical staff too often bad continual indifference to the need of others.
Almost since my first job after graduating from university I had learned that people are not to be trusted, need to be supervised, and corruption still exists in construction, universities, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well.
Bad Hospitals waste the taxpayer’s so the Doctors can get more money, even the same very bad who Doctors fail to define the sicknesses soon enough.
Law suits and the related bad publicity have been proven to be one of the most effective weapons in dealing with medical inadequacies. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/03/21/and-the-quebec-corruption-gravy-train-went-on-and-on/
