About time the RCMP reaps what is sowed

Off-duty RCMP officer arrested for River Heights break-in –  An off-duty RCMP officer was arrested for allegedly breaking into a River Heights home while intoxicated on Thursday, said Winnipeg police. An investigation determined that a suspect in an intoxicated state broke in through the front door to a stranger’s residence in River Heights and woke up a person inside, said officers. A neighbour told CTV News the suspect fell asleep on a couch inside the home. The neighbour said the suspect believed he was at a hotel and even left his shoes at the door before falling asleep on the couch. Winnipeg police responded and took the suspect into custody.  The 30-year-old male suspect faces a charge for forcible entry and has been released on a court appearance notice. His name has not been released.

Alberta should not renew RCMP contract

“And the RCMP has changed, for the worse. At the headquarters level there hasn’t been a good report in years. Various inquiries have found incompetence, poor training, poor discipline, poor co-ordination and communication, and outright dishonesty. Those inquiries have used phrases like “horribly broken,” “often flawed,” “not justified” and so on.

News reports made it clear that RCMP investigations into embarrassing and fatal actions of their own members were inadequate to the point of being a coverup. At the field level there were many reports of highly dubious shootings by RCMP members, and criminal investigations into the conduct of members when off duty. Former RCMP Commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli resigned in disgrace after giving conflicting statements to a Parliamentary committee. ” 

This is not a new revelation I myself now had detailed to you about 25 years ago my own experience in Canmore Alberta with the perverse RCMP where I got 2 speeding tickets on the same spot years apart and how the RCMP next also had covered up for it’s pervere buddies, and I had also entered my complaint about their perverse acts into the Canmore Queens court record as well now.
  One of the best way that I have discovered to get to know what a cop  is really like, is work with him  just for one whole day,.. and   what   you now saw next.. lying, bullying, control freak..

VANCOUVER – A public inquiry into Robert Dziekanski’s death revealed new evidence and the investigation into the actions of the four RCMP officers involved should be reopened, says a special prosecutor appointed following a damning report from the inquiry. The province named Richard Peck as special prosecutor after the report released earlier this month concluded the four officers used too much force when they stunned Dziekanski with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport, and then misled investigators looking into his death.


The RCMP published values are: Integrity, honesty, professionalism, compassion, respect and accountability. How many of these values were transgressed?


– Manslaughter
– Criminal Negligence Causing Death
– Obstruction of Justice
– Criminal Mischief
– Perjury

– The facts are not that the RCMP wrongfully did not hesitate to abuse a person Robert Dziekanski at the airport, and the fact they had clearly lied to try to justify it, but the sad fact also is that the RCMP bosses, managers were also accomplices in the whole despicable affair with their own follow up lies and cover up and they too should be all prosecuted, dismissed, fired now too.


The RCMP’s personnel and their management cover up, immoral conduct following the death plus the Criminal Justice Branch’s decision a year later that no charges were warranted against the Mounties involved were also  an unacceptable subsequent “unprofessional” conducts, acts  that compounded the rightful revulsion on the part of the citizens towards the whole affair, justice system, RCMP too.

 The problem with the RCMP begins right at the top Vancouver Sun  If the RCMP had promptly disciplined officers who used excessive force, including unnecessary use of the Taser, then many lives might have been saved, not just Dziekanski’s. The RCMP needs reform at the top. 

In the view of retired chief justice Thomas Braidwood, RCMP officers had  made statements under oath that were “deliberate misrepresentations, made for the purpose of justifying their actions.”  I can assure you this practice is decades old too. Make sure it stops now. 


Special prosecutor to reopen Dziekanski investigation

New evidence enough to reopen Dziekanski case


Note this undeniable fact if a police officer takes drugs, is an alcoholic, an adulterer, a liar, he likely also steals, makes false expense account statements, commits tax evasion and definitely makes a bad cop.


Our falsely claiming to be now open, accountable honest, decent,  law and order supposedly rather clearly lying  Conservative Stephen Harper Canadian government has been clearly sleeping with these bad cops, defending them.. and likley will not do much good in reality about them too. Last Monday, the government introduced a bill to boost the independent civilian review and public complaints scheme that governs the Mounties without waiting, as it promised, for the Air India inquiry. The bill doesn’t go nearly as far to empower an independent RCMP watchdog as is needed. It’s riddled with loopholes that still protect “privileged” information, including anything to do with “national security.” “This is crazy,  Where’s the transparency there?” Prime Minister Stephen Harper   expects to “push-back” to many of the changes proposed to deal positively with the RCMP–mounties-battered-by-more-bad-reviews.

VANCOUVER – The B.C. government will immediately appoint a special prosecutor to review the possibility of charges against four RCMP officers involved in Robert Dziekanski’s death, in light of a public inquiry report that delivers a searing indictment of their actions. B.C. Attorney General Mike de Jong said the matter should be reviewed following an inquiry report released Friday that concluded the officers were not justified in using their Taser, and their explanations of the events that unfolded the night Dziekanski died were “patently unbelievable.” Contrary to their testimony at the inquiry, commissioner Thomas Braidwood said the officers could not have reasonably perceived Dziekanski was a threat when he picked up a stapler during the confrontation at Vancouver’s airport in October 2007. The report by the former B.C. judge is riddled with terms like “untrue,” misleading,” “misrepresented,” and “overstated,” to describe the testimony of the four RCMP officers involved. De Jong said it is essential that a special prosecutor will be appointed immediately, given the information in the report. “The special prosecutor will assess whether there is any additional evidence or grounds upon which to reconsider the earlier decision around criminal prosecution,” de Jong said. RCMP commissioner William Elliot acknowledged that the force failed at many levels in this case, and said investigations of incidents involving RCMP officers will be turned over to B.C.’s civilian oversight body. “It is clear that our policies and training in place at the time were deficient,” Elliot said  “We acknowledge that the actions of our members who dealt with Mr. Dziekanski also fell short, including the fact that our officers did not take enough time to try and de-escalate the situation and did not provide an appropriate level of care to Mr. Dziekanski.” Dziekanski, who didn’t speak English, arrived in Vancouver after a long flight from Poland and spent 10 hours in the airport before he eventually cleared customs. Unable to find his mother or communicate with anyone, Dziekanski began throwing furniture in the airport’s international terminal. Several onlookers called 911 and one witness started filming the scene on his video camera. The four RCMP officers were told by a 911 operator to expect a drunk suspect. Within seconds of their arrival, one of them fired the Taser, pulling the trigger five times in total, mostly after Dziekanski had fallen to the ground. Dziekanski’s mother filed a wrongful death lawsuit last year against the RCMP and others, but settled the case this past April after receiving a public apology from the force and an undisclosed financial settlement.
