“We cannot trust the RCMP, or the Military too now?

Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too. It is a clearly established fact with good basis as to why our Canadian leaders, politicians, police, military, public and civil servants  who are always to be exemplary are even personally are to held to a higher standard, accountability in reality.

.

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

There are approximately 16,000 police officers and military personnel at the Olympics, including 6,000 police officers from 118 departments across the country.  Now 11 police officers and members of the Canadian Forces have been dismissed from their posts with the Integrated Security Unit, an RCMP-led joint police, military and security force overseeing the Olympic Winter Games, for improper conduct, breaches of “ethics and values”and there have been no names released, no arrests and no charges and the investigations are ongoing supposedly. Four Canadian Forces personnel and seven police officers from the RCMP-led Integrated Security Unit responsible for protecting the Vancouver Games have been sent home for code-of-conduct violations. And Vancouver Police say they are investigating two members of the unit, also known as the ISU, in connection to incidents that occurred in the City of Vancouver. No further details of the allegations were released.  Representatives of the Integrated Security Unit said that seven police officers have been sent home for code-of-conduct issues, but had next declined to elaborate.

.

These are all professionals? In name only it seems too often now. The  Police as typical of course have not released details about the investigations of other police officers. ISU spokesman Staff Sgt. Mike Cote wouldn’t give any further details on the two police investigations, but says the other code of conduct cases could range from not showing up for work to drinking. ” Speaking from experience , I was at the Whistler village doing security work and was working 12 hours a day,.. I had to give up my position there and return home because of the housing situation,. I was sharing with four other guards. The partying and carrying on at night time effected my ability to preform my job properly. They thought it was a big joke and party time. So I walked away from what was spouse to be a great experience with a very bad taste left in my mouth” The bulk of the security force is housed in cruise ships berthed at the Ballantyne Pier in east Vancouver for the duration of the Games. One BILLION dollars and we get this and it is still a ludicrous amount of money.  What a waste of tax dollars.  and do not forget the incompetent management overhead, for personal expenses too, and included the phony receipts too, plus included all the money that is diverted elsewhere before it even reaches the project as usual.. Putting money in a pail full of holes is always still a bad practice, and the Liberals, Conservatives had promised us a better government? Any suckers to buy Brooklyn Bridge again too?  Many are already getting realy tired about hearing reading too often about bad cops. In any case,hiding what actually happened from the public is pretty much normal.  We are used to that. ” ” Dishonest in the small things = Dishonest in the large things. What else are they ‘HIDING’ from the public? ” “How many more corrupt cops do we need to hear about before somebody somewhere has the balls to do something about it? ” All of this is a typical bad nightmare again.. and the RCMP lying  spin doctors, bad managers  will say it all not that bad again too.. Likley again just the small tipi of a huge icberg of corruptions.. RCMP included

Former CO and subordinate charged in sex case The Canadian Press – Tue Jul 13, 12:10 AM  OTTAWA – The chief of the defence staff is battling immorality in the ranks as the former commander of Canada’s troops in Afghanistan and a female subordinate face charges from their sexual liaison. The Canadian Forces National Investigation Service launched an investigation shortly after Master-Cpl. Bianka Langlois acknowledged she had an affair with Brig.-Gen. Daniel Menard in Afghanistan. Menard, married with two children, faces two counts of conduct to the prejudice of good order and discipline under the military’s fraternization regulations. The 26-year veteran has also been charged with one count of obstructing justice and a separate count of conduct to the prejudice of good order and discipline. Langlois has been charged with one count of conduct to the prejudice of good order and discipline, also related to military fraternization regulations.  “Canadian Forces are held to a high standard of values, morals and ethics,”   ” leaders who have failed to live up to the standards expected by the men and women in uniform under their command are being held accountable.”

OTTAWA – The most senior ranking Canadian military officer in Haiti has been relieved of command and is the subject of an investigation. Col. Bernard Ouellette, who doubles as the chief of staff to the United Nations mission in the earthquake-battered country, is facing several allegations — including that he was involved in an inappropriate relationship. The case is in the hands of military police. The latest case comes as the military continues to investigate Brig.-Gen. Daniel Menard, who was stripped of command in Afghanistan for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with a female subordinate.  The allegations against Ouellette could only heap more tarnish on the military, which also faced heavy criticism last winter for not spotting, among the myriad of psychological tests, potential problems with Col. Russ Williams. The former commander of the country’s busiest air base was accused in the murders of two Ontario women. Ouellette has a Master’s of Arts in war studies from the Royal Military College in Kingston Ont., and a Bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Quebec.

In the last 10 years, crime rates have fallen roughly 27 per cent but costs have risen 44 per cent in policing and 33 per cent in corrections. Our prisoner population has managed to stay constant.  Is that a paradox? Or is that because those in the system are smart enough to ensure they all keep working and our prisons remain full, even though there are far fewer crimes. Also the report notes “the most embarrassing lacunae in Canadian data” is the lack of useful information on our courts — “we have no systemic way of assessing whether the courts are getting more or less effective in dealing with the cases that they see, let alone understanding how much as a society we are paying. For a developed nation, this is disappointing to say the least … How bad is it?”  It’s appalling — even mischief cases take more than half a year on average to process.  First Nations represent about four per cent of the population but more and more of them are being imprisoned — from 13 per cent of the offenders in custody in 1998 to 20 per cent a decade later. In Saskatchewan, 80 per cent of inmates are native. In Manitoba it’s 70 per cent, in (Racists) Alberta 40 per cent.In those three provinces, aboriginal people also are least likely to be given probation or conditional sentences.  That is a major scandal that demands investigation..  http://www.vancouversun.com/Mulgrew+Cost+crime+rises+crime+rate+falls/10296393/story.html

The RCMP received almost 13,000 formal public complaints since 2010, but the force rejected 90% of them and the high rejection rate for complaints undermines citizens’ confidence in the force.

In our series of stories about dealings with the Osoyoos RCMP, one theme is consistent: the people were all disappointed with the formal process to complain about the conduct of RCMP members.  http://www.theprovince.com/news/iteam/Lawsuits+last+resort+after+formal+complaint+process+left+people+feeling+unsatisfied/10328558/story.html

So hundreds of complaints of sexual and workplace harassment filed in recent years by female Mounties – including an ongoing class-action lawsuit by more than 330 past and present sworn officers and civilian employees..In some past cases, even when harassment, bullying or abuse was admitted, male officers received relatively minor punishment while female victims were subsequently cold-shouldered by their mostly male colleagues for speaking out and sought transfers or quit.

And I am not convinced that our too often rather incompetent, racist , cost ineffective  national police, security forces, RCMP included now are capable of dealing with the Muslims terrorists especially  since they clearly cannot speak Russian or Arabic or any other foreign languages  for the most part still.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/04/24/should-we-deport-all-muslims-from-canada/
