Unacceptable RCMP coverup of the killing of Robert Dziekanski

hearing

 AND WHAT NO BAD RCMP COPS FACED ANY JAIL TIME FOR THIS YET?

.

CP VANCOUVER – A woman concerned about Robert Dziekanski a few hours before he was shocked by an RCMP Taser and died says an immigration officer at Vancouver’s airport deflected her concerns about the man. Gracie Churchill-Browne, a Spanish interpreter, told a public inquiry into his death that Dziekanski looked “tired and frustrated” and clearly couldn’t speak English, but the officer she spoke to told her “he’s a big boy.” So much for the competent, professional  RCMP!

Dziekanski inquiry resumes after three-month break to focus on RCMP email VANCOUVER, B.C. – The public inquiry into Robert Dziekanski’s death resumes Tuesday to examine an internal RCMP email that put the hearings on hold three months ago.  

 VANCOUVER, B.C. – The lawyer for Robert Dziekanski’s mother says the B.C. government should replace the RCMP with a provincial police force.  Dziekanski died nearly two years ago at Vancouver’s airport after he was shocked with a Taser by four Mounties.  In his final submission at a public inquiry into the death, lawyer Walter Kosteckyj says the RCMP acts as the provincial police force in British Columbia, but doesn’t want to be held accountable to the provincial legislature.  The RCMP officers themselves have claimed the provincial inquiry has no jurisdiction over them.  And Kosteckyj says the government of Canada will make the same argument in its final submissions this week.  He says that’s undemocratic, and the only solution is to stop using the Mounties in B.C. and instead create a province-wide force.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/091005/national/taser_inquiry
 

VANCOUVER, B.C. – At best, the four RCMP officers who confronted Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver’s airport and stunned him several times with a Taser panicked, the lawyer for Robert Dziekanski’s mother told the public inquiry into his death Monday.  At worst, they arrived with a plan to use what amounted to excessive force, Walter Kosteckyj said in his final submission to the inquiry.  Either way, the Mounties failed to live up to their training and the law, he said.  “The Tasering of Mr. Dziekanski at its best would be characterized as a premature, hurried and panicked response, and at the worst was a premeditated and planned attack,” Kosteckyj said  Kosteckyj said the officers acted improperly from the moment they entered the airport, not taking time to assess the situation or communicate with Dziekanski, and resorting to the Taser within seconds of approaching the man.  Despite the officers’ claims to the contrary, Kosteckyj said the swiftness of their response suggests they approached Dziekanski already planning to use the stun gun. Kosteckyj spent more than 10 minutes listing discrepancies, including the Mounties’ repeated assertions that Dziekanski stood through the Taser jolts, had to be tackled to the ground, and was coming at the officers yelling with his hands above his head when the Taser was fired.  And he said airport officials made the “unconscionable” decisions not to call the facility’s own firefighters after Dziekanski was stunned and to not bring an automatic defibrillator to the scene despite a standing policy to do so.   http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/091005/national/taser_inquiry

Poland disappointed with lack of charges in taser case Globe and Mail   Poland remains disappointed that no criminal charges were laid against four Mounties who tasered Robert Dziekanski, suggesting video footage of the 2007 incident encourages an instinctive reaction that “wrong-doers be made accountable through criminal

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. “

RCMP A(15)

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.

Retired judge Thomas Braidwood in the first half of his findings following the inquiry into the taser death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski in Vancouver, British Columbia July 23, 2009. Braidwood said the police should restrict the use of taser stun guns. The inquiry was called after Dziekanski died from use of a taser used by Royal Canadian Mounted Police at Vancouver Airport in 2007.

This hearing also has been a good undeniable example of the unacceptable RCMP false denials, lies, slander, distortions, RCMP managerial incompetence now as well..

It TRULY has even a sad, debauching  spectacle in our Canadian public life watching the RCMP continually gouge themselves at the Braidwood inquiry into the Tasering death of Robert Dziekanski two years ago at Vancouver International airport? The RCMP a once, now past  proud institution, in the past one of the best known icons of Canada, Canada wide and  in the rest of the world now rightfully has taken it’s place in the waste, trash bins. The RCMP though  it still seems hell-bent on destroying its last shreds of any competence, truthfulness, integrity, professionalism and credibility. Why? The clear evidence already has shown us all, shows   that the RCMP knew days before video of Mr. Dziekanski’s killing became public that it had a serious, time bomb ticking in its hands. Instead of  dealing  with it in a professional, competent manner,  by even still now rightfully suspending the officers involved, and themselves instead conducting a thorough internal investigation, the incompetent RCMP Managers top brass  had  instead devised a false cover-up to mute or at least minimize the negative consequences. But that is what they have been doing all the long anyway. This was, is unacceptable. THEY ALL STILL NOW SHOULD BE DISMISSED FROM THE FORCE TOO. Even just as shameful is the way the force has continued to justify its officers’ behaviour and its own actions in papering over their offences. Instead of sweeping clean, even the new Commissioner William Elliott has quickly become the false RCMP’s apologist-in-chief. The Mounties can begin to restore their reputation only if they punish all those involved here and make them take their rightful dues. May this Force not be with you any longer. Now why it took anyone such a long time to expose, deal with all this police corruption in the first place is still a good question too.
 

Poland’s top civil-rights watchdog says a crucial e-mail dissected at the Braidwood inquiry this week suggests the death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski was “deliberate, intentional and planned in advance.”  The comment by Janusz Kochanowski, Poland’s commissioner for civil-rights protection, is included in a letter to be sent next week to Canada’s director of public prosecutions. Mr. Kochanowski is an independent officer appointed by the Polish government to monitor and uphold the civil rights of Polish citizens at home and abroad.  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/british-columbia/dziekanski-death-deliberate-watchdog/article1300732/

 
Chief Supt. Dick Bent told Assistant Commissioner Al McIntyre that Supt. Wayne Rideout told him the officers who used a Taser on Dziekanski discussed using the weapon on their way to the scene. That contradicted testimony the Mounties themselves gave earlier in the Braidwood inquiry looking into Dziekanski’s death two years ago.   “The three RCMP officials cited in the email will be called during the three days of hearings and are expected to tell the inquiry that the email was the result of a misunderstanding.” This is such garbage. Those idiot cops have done more to hurt the image of the RCMP with this incident than any group of corrupt police has done in the last decade. Looking the public RIGHT IN THE EYE and bald-faced LYING! As if we’re supposed to forgive them for this or something. What a farce. The reputation of the RCMP is falling fast if they ‘stand up for their own’ on this one. And now they will try to make everyone believe that the email was a “misunderstanding” of some sort? They’re not fooling anyone and won’t be anytime soon.  The only reason they’re not in jail is because they have badge. It’s ridiculous.If these four men aren’t charged with contempt of court at the very least, I will withdraw all support and pride in the RCMP I ever had. At this point, it’s next to nothing anyway. This whole thing, start to finish is disgusting, and a disgrace to Canada. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/09/22/dziekanski-braidwood-inquiry-email183.html

RCMP tests Tasers that record video. I wonder how many chips containing video data will get lost, or mislaid after these things are used? Sorry, but I am no longer willing to trust the RCMP. http://www.cbc.ca/technology/story/2009/09/24/tech-taser-video-camera.html

Taser testimony gaps ‘beyond belief’: B.C. inquiry lawyer Vancouver Province September 24,  VANCOUVER — The four RCMP officers who Tasered and restrained Robert Dziekanski kept working together for weeks after the Polish immigrant died in their custody at the Vancouver International Airport. Yet the four officers previously told the inquiry probing his October 2007 death that they never had the opportunity to discuss the case, either at work, at a debriefing session or in phone calls or e-mails. But on its 61st and final day of hearings, the Braidwood inquiry into Dziekanski’s death heard Wednesday from RCMP Sgt. Doug Wright — the immediate supervisor of the four Mounties involved in the Tasering — that the four kept working together “for two or three weeks.” Then, Wright admitted, three of the four were sent on a training course together in Chilliwack, B.C. Outside the courtroom, Polish government lawyer Don Rosenbloom called Wright’s evidence “just beyond belief.” Walter Kosteckyj, lawyer for Dziekanski’s mother, Zofia Cisowski, agreed. “You’ve got four people that work together, they go through what is obviously a traumatic experience, and then they continue to work together for three weeks — and then three of them get sent to do a training course together. “What would common sense dictate? Of course they would discuss this incident.” http://www.ottawacitizen.com/Taser+testimony+gaps+beyond+belief+inquiry+lawyer/2030021/story.html

Judge disbelieves RCMP acquits defendant.  A B.C. judge has acquitted a man on a charge of aggravated assault, saying she did not believe testimony from the Mounties involved in his arrest. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Marvyn Koenigsberg says officers in Burns Lake, B.C., used excessive force in subduing Andrew Fidler following his arrest in October 2006 for assault, and breached his charter rights. In the written ruling earlier this month, Koenigsberg said disclosure of records from the RCMP was a “continuing problem” throughout the trial and she finally ordered the entire police file handed over to the court. “Throughout the trial … difficulties were encountered with disclosure of documentation from the Burns Lake detachment,” Koenigsberg noted in the Sept. 14 ruling. “Not only was there late disclosure, the disclosure was piecemeal and necessitated the court, in exasperation the last few days of the trial, to order the entire file of Mr. Fidler’s encounters with (RCMP)… to be brought to court.” Among the documents then discovered was an RCMP internal report that directly conflicted with what the arresting officers had told the court under oath regarding whether or not Fidler was ordered out of his home by the arresting Mounties. Koenigsberg noted that a security camera at the detachment was operating the night Fidler was brought in, but the surveillance video of the detachment and the cells was inexplicably erased. It’s not the first time Mounties have come under fire for their record-keeping and disclosure of information following controversial arrests. The public inquiry into the death of Robert Dziekanski will resume Tuesday to deal with the disclosure of internal emails that surfaced just as the inquiry was to wrap up. The correspondence raised questions about the testimony of the four officers involved in the incident about whether they discussed using a Taser as they headed to the airport to respond to the call. Critics have said questions about the Mounties’ testimony, and documents from before and after Dziekanski’s death, raise questions about whether the RCMP were truthful about what happened in Dziekanski’s death.  It is so sad and disappointing the degree to which the RCMP as an organization has squandered their inspirational heritage and squandered the public trust. Over 100 years brave, stellar professionals have morphed into a lying, deceitful, self-serving bureaucracy. The rot simply has to be removed from the force if Canadians are to have any form of faith in them again.  hahaha, the RCMP has got to be good fodder for comedy!  if we cannot trust the people paid to protect us to carry out their duties within the law, honestly, and with integrity (who can we trust )..  http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2009/09/21/bc-rcmp-court-judgment.html

EDMONTON – A veteran Mountie serving in Edmonton’s major crime unit has been charged with seven criminal offences following a investigation into a family fight.  Cpl. Kelly Gulaga faces five counts of assault, one of forcible confinement and one firearms offence.  RCMP spokesman Cpl. Wayne Oakes says Gulaga, a 19-year Mountie veteran, has been suspended with pay pending the outcome of the case.  The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team says it began conducting the investigation in July.  ASIRT says Gulaga appeared in St. Albert provincial court on Monday and was released with conditions.  Gulaga is to appear in court again on Oct. 5 for election and plea. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090922/national/mountie_assault_charges

OUR Civil society can not afford to discount any kind of bad police behavior.. time to convict the RCMP of all of their crimes, thus  make a good example of them rightfully too

VANCOUVER — Just a week before the two-year anniversary of her son’s death at Vancouver International Airport, Zofia Cisowski has filed a lawsuit for damages .  The lawsuit against the RCMP, the Canada Border Services Agency and the Vancouver Airport Authority seeks damages for psychological injury, the loss of her son, Robert Dziekanski, and her inability to work since the incident. The suit, filed in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver on Wednesday, also seeks punitive damages. Dziekanski, 40, died on Oct. 14, 2007, after being Tasered five times by four RCMP officers responding to a 911 call at the airport. Dziekanski, who was immigrating to Canada to live with his mother, had become frustrated after a 20-hour flight from Poland, then spending about 11 hours in the international arrivals area of the airport. He was unable to contact his mother, who was waiting for him in another area. Cisowski’s lawsuit, filed a week before the statute of limitations would go into effect, said the conduct of the RCMP and four officers breached the Charter of Rights and was “an abuse of power, reprehensible, malicious, oppressive and high-handed.” The suit claims negligence, assault and battery, malfeasance and charter violations by the RCMP. http://www.calgaryherald.com/news/Dziekanski+sues+RCMP+border+agency+airport/2082604/story.html
 
WE ALREADY KNEW THAT A LONG TIME AGO, IT IS JUST BASIC COMMON SENSE AND  THAT IS WHY WE DO NOW HAVE A HEARING NOW TOO

 

RCMP shouldn’t investigate RCMP, says officer in charge of Dziekanski case Tue Sep 22, 7:47 PM  VANCOUVER, B.C. – The senior Mountie who was in charge of the investigation into Robert Dziekanski’s death says the national police force shouldn’t investigate itself…Supt. Wayne Rideout was in charge of criminal operations in the region and headed the investigation into Dziekanski’s death in October 2007, after four RCMP officers stunned him with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport.  he says bringing in an outside body would avoid the sort of public perception problems that have plagued the Dziekanski case.  Just last month, the RCMP’s federal watchdog also said the force shouldn’t investigate itself, although the RCMP has resisted turning over such cases to outside bodies. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/03/11/unwanted-rcmp/
.
On December 12, 2008, the Criminal Justice Branch of British Columbia issued a statement, finding that although the RCMP officers’ efforts to restrain Dziekański were a contributing cause of his death, the force they used to subdue and restrain him was reasonable and necessary in all the circumstances; thus there would not be a substantial likelihood of conviction of the officers in connection with the incident and accordingly criminal charges were not approved.[28] Three of the officers remain on duty elsewhere in Canada, while the supervisor, Corporal Benjamin “Monty” Robinson, resigned from the force on July 20, 2012 in anticipation of a sentencing hearing after being found guilty of obstruction of justice[29] stemming from the death of a 21-year old Vancouver man.[30][31][32]

Canada’s Justice system is fooling few persons

rcmp (000)

A disoriented Robert Dziekanski died after being Tasered and restrained by four members of the RCMP on Oct. 14, 2007 at the Vancouver International Airport. The incident has become a permanent  blight on the entire RCMP and public perception of the force hit an all time low.  The RCMP were fighting a losing battle, especially as the public has seen a witness video of the incident. It didn’t help the RCMP that they initially confiscated the video belonging to that witness, Paul Pritchard. The police later relented and gave Pritchard back the video. He made it public Nov. 14, 2007, so members of the public could draw their own conclusions. There were many discrepancies regarding officers’ statements concerning what happened, made immediately after Dziekanski’s death, compared with what Pritchard’s video revealed. The video shows Robert Dziekanski falling to the ground immediately after the first Taser shot. The officers at the scene claimed he remained standing for at least two Taser charges. The Braidwood inquiry gave the officers a chance to explain these discrepancies. They could not.

You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors, from police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers  who say that bad people, bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. The hypocrItical police tend not to believe that bad cons can be helped only bad cops… and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/liars-mounties-misleading-everyone/

Const. Kwesi Millington, the RCMP officer who fired a Taser the night Robert Dziekanski died at Vancouver International Airport, has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for perjury and colluding with his fellow officers at an inquiry into the death. All four officers were charged with perjury following the inquiry into Dziekanski’s death, for testimony inquiry commissioner Thomas Braidwood called “patently unbelievable.” Millington and former RCMP corporal Monty Robinson were convicted of perjury; the other officers, Const. Bill Bentley and Const. Gerry Rundel, were acquitted.

A trinket to pretend justice is served.   It won’t bring back Robert Dziekanski , but a small bit of justice finally administered..

.

All of the RCMP involved should be in jail.  Rasicm  is alive and well in our Canadian Justice system”   Under this regime, Black and First Nations don’t just go to the back of the bus, they go under it.” Only the non-white officers are held accountable. The white RCMP officers get off scot-free, even though they did exactly the same thing as their less white colleagues.  killed Robert Dziekanski

.

There were, are four criminals involved here. Not just the one who used the Taser. All four are equally guilty  bad men…  All Police force members are to held accountable for their actions on the job. And  Members of the Police forces  should be held to a higher standard when it comes to the law because of the trust we put in them to enforce the law. They should get severely punished for their failure to do so, especially in circumstances where they abuse their position to try and cover up their very poor behaviour.  Abuse of authority and  Manipulation of the truth is well worthy of jail time for all bad police officers too.

.

Now why are the clearly foolish Canadian  justice ministers, cops, so foolish still  that they do now even think that they can turn the clock backwards and continue again doing the very same bad things now that they all have even been exposed for what they really are world wide even.. they are bad people who abuse citizens and obstruct justice and do need to be put into prison themselves. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/11/30/25147/

.

It would be easy to form the impression that the four Richmond RCMP officers involved were the only ones to blame for the tragedy at Vancouver International Airport on Oct. 14, 2007. But as the lawyer for Dziekanski’s mother has astutely observed, that’s only because the RCMP’s spectacularly bad PR has stolen the spotlight. RCMP brass and the federal government could have pre-empted a damning report from Thomas Braidwood by stepping up with a genuine mea culpa and an announcement that a major overhaul of the RCMP and CBSA was already in the works. That hasn’t happened. Now, given how much has been exposed in this inquiry, it is hard to believe a few people won’t be held to account. http://www2.canada.com/burnabynow/news/community/story.html?id=8d1d3edf-7582-4031-93f0-d6efddf13a8d

And that includes the and justice ministers, solicitor generals at the federal and provincial levels now too and who is going to hold them all accountable? not the bad PM for sure.

Robert Dziekanski would likely still be alive if he hadn’t been stunned multiple times with a Taser and restrained on the floor of Vancouver’s airport by four RCMP officers, said  an expert pathologist

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/03/11/unwanted-rcmp/

.

It has been obvious from the beginning when the RCMP had refused to return to the owner the tape OF Robert Dziekanski’s death  that the RCMP was guilty of cover-up, obstruction of justice, guilty of perversity in their behavior.. AND THROUGH OUT THE HEARING THAT HAS BEEN AN UNDENIABLE, UNACCEPTABLE CONTINUED FACT OF LIFE AS WELL. Now in reality an RCMP  cleansing is needed and heads should roll, the heads of the RCMP officers at the scenes, their immediate supervisors, and all the top brass related to the cover-up, inadequate proper actions in these matters, and the sooner the better for the benefit of the whole RCMP, and all Canadians now as well who rightfully  have LOST A  SERIOUS TRUST INTO THIS RCMP INSTITUTION.

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?

https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/06/16/no-confidence/

.

Many years later the RCMP officer who stunned Robert Dziekanski with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport lied at a public inquiry into the Polish immigrant’s death, a judge ruled. Const. Kwesi Millington fired his Taser multiple times after he and three other officers were summoned to Vancouver’s airport in October 2007. Dziekanski, who spoke no English, had been throwing furniture in the international terminal.  Millington’s verdict marks the first time a judge has concluded that one of the officers lied. Another Mountie, Const. Bill Bentley, was acquitted in 2013, while two other cases have not yet concluded.  The Crown alleged the officers colluded on a story to tell homicide investigators and write in their police notes in an attempt to heighten the threat that Dziekianski posed. Prosecutors argued the officers’ statements and notes all contained similar errors, proving they worked together. The Crown further alleged the officers met in the Vancouver area in the days or weeks before testifying at the inquiry in early 2009 to plan their testimony. A witness, whose ex-husband is Bentley’s cousin, told the court the officers met at her home, but the defence presented telephone records, credit card receipts and other evidence to cast doubt on her testimony. The judge  noted that the officer’s errors all exaggerated the threat Dziekanski posed.

There is “no denying” aboriginals in Canada are overrepresented in the country’s penal system, says Justice Minister Peter MacKay. “This is a tragedy that we have to come to grips with,” The  Justice System Encourages the Continuation of Injustice.   Aboriginal prisoners are overrepresented in Canada’s federal prisons and waiting longer for parole, according to new numbers from the Public Safety Ministry, which is responsible for corrections. Aboriginal inmates less likely to get early release from prison.  Statistically, aboriginal offenders are more likely to go right to the end of their sentence date. Nearly 85 per cent of aboriginal offenders are detained in federal prisons until they have served two-thirds of their sentences, at which time most offenders are entitled to statutory release, compared to 69 per cent of non-aboriginal offenders.  Under federal law, inmates must be released, under supervision, at the two-thirds point of their sentence, unless authorities believe there is a high likelihood those offenders will commit a violent crime. For non-aboriginal inmates, the corresponding figure is 69.3 per cent.   A disproportionate number of aboriginal people arrive in federal prison each year, despite a federal sentencing law that requires judges to consider alternatives to custody for native people. Aboriginal people make up 23.2 per cent of federal inmates, but only about 4 per cent of the Canadian population.

.

The number of aboriginal women in Canadian prisons is also on the rise. Aboriginal women represent about four per cent of the general population . Women of aboriginal descent now make up more than 35 per cent of the female prison population. ”

.

” By a wide range of measures, aboriginal offenders fare worse in prison than others. Arriving at an earlier age (48.8 per cent of those entering in 2013-14 were under 30, compared with 36 per cent of non-aboriginal inmates), they tend to be held in segregation more frequently and to be held in custody longer till their first release. They also make up 42.3 per cent of offenders held past their statutory release date, right to the end of their sentence, because of fears they will be violent, the report said. And once released, whether on parole or statutory release, they have their release suspended or revoked more frequently than others. ”  I think Aboriginal people are easy targets. They tend to be marginalized and tend to have limited resources,”  “It’s just a perfect storm for people who don’t have the resources to stick up for themselves.” Saskatoon defence lawyer James Scott has long believed Aboriginal people faced a bias in the judiciary . He Calls for public inquiry into Saskatchewan’s over incarceration of Aboriginal people.  This   disparity between native and non-native parole rates  prove that the justice system, including the parole board, is somehow stacked against natives.

.

Now a huge economic prosperity gap remains between First Nations and non-aboriginal populations in B.C. and across the country, especially for those living on First Nations on reserves.“ The gaps between aboriginal and non-aboriginal Canadians remain large,” There were 1,400,685 people classified as aboriginal in 2011, according to the report — 851,560 First Nations, 59,440 Inuit, and 451,800 self-identified as Métis, meaning they are of mixed First Nation-European heritage. In B.C. there were 155,020 First Nations people (103,975 living off-reserve, the remaining 51,045 on-reserve), 1,570 Inuit and 69,475 Métis. Left alone, the situation will worsen. The first place it will become apparent will be in Canada’s prisons.

The number of black inmates sent to solitary confinement in federal prisons has doubled in the last decade, according to new figures that have prompted Canada’s correctional watchdog to declare the use of solitary “out of control.” In a 2013 report on the black inmate experience, the Correctional Investigator found that all black inmates were viewed as having gang affiliations by correctional staff, even where the label was demonstrably false. Investigators also learned that correctional programs contain little material reflecting black knowledge, culture or traditions . “From our perspective, this speaks to the general trend of anti-black racism that flows throughout the criminal justice system,” said Anthony Morgan, policy and research lawyer at the African Canadian Legal Clinic. “We strongly feel these numbers scream for the necessity to do a review of systemic racism within the criminal justice system.”

Our Conservative government believes that criminals belong behind bars.: Hesitate to prosecute their own white people for any wrong doings though.

EDMONTON – A lengthy investigation into the trafficking of steroids within the Edmonton Police Service has resulted in charges and suspensions against two veteran officers, while six others have been removed from their current duties. “Edmontonians expect their police officers to be honest and ethical, and answer to a higher standard,”   “Behaviour contrary to these expectations brings reputational damage to our police service and violates the public trust.”

VANCOUVER — Many years later the RCMP officer who stunned Robert Dziekanski with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport lied at a public inquiry into the Polish immigrant’s death, a judge ruled. Const. Kwesi Millington fired his Taser multiple times after he and three other officers were summoned to Vancouver’s airport in October 2007. Dziekanski, who spoke no English, had been throwing furniture in the international terminal.  Millington’s verdict marks the first time a judge has concluded that one of the officers lied. Another Mountie, Const. Bill Bentley, was acquitted in 2013, while two other cases have not yet concluded.  The Crown alleged the officers colluded on a story to tell homicide investigators and write in their police notes in an attempt to heighten the threat that Dziekianski posed. Prosecutors argued the officers’ statements and notes all contained similar errors, proving they worked together. The Crown further alleged the officers met in the Vancouver area in the days or weeks before testifying at the inquiry in early 2009 to plan their testimony. A witness, whose ex-husband is Bentley’s cousin, told the court the officers met at her home, but the defence presented telephone records, credit card receipts and other evidence to cast doubt on her testimony. The judge  noted that the officer’s errors all exaggerated the threat Dziekanski posed.

A constable with B.C.’s Abbotsford Police Department has been criminally charged and 16 other officers are under investigation for allegations related to the integrity of statements used in a number of criminal cases to obtain search warrants. Const. Christopher Nicholson has been charged with  breach of trust, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to traffic a controlled substance, the Office of the Police Complaints Commissioner (OPCC) said in a statement released Wednesday.  During the Vancouver Police Department investigation, it says it uncovered further allegations of misconduct against 16 other members of the APD and a total of 148 accusations of misconduct against seventeen members of the Abbotsford Police Department. The accusations include corrupt practice, deceit, and neglect of duty. The OPCC says it has not been able to adequately determine the extent to which prosecutions may have been compromised “due to the lack of adequate disclosure from the police. Deputy Police Complaint Commissioner Rollie Woods says the officers are accused of making up information to secure search warrants. “The concerns raised have an impact of the interplay between key institutional stakeholders within the criminal justice system which include the federal prosecution service, judicial officers and the police. Furthermore, what remains an active concern to the OPCC is the extent to which the search warrants in issue may have contributed to potentially unsafe prosecutions,” reads a statement from the office.

RCMP Officers perjury trial timeline frustrates justice and mother

.4 years have passed and another 2 or more to go.. for real justice here..

The mother of Robert Dziekanski says delays in prosecuting the RCMP police officers involved in her son’s death are prolonging her suffering. The Polish man trying to visit his Mom  died after four Mounties used a Taser stun gun to subdue him at Vancouver International Airport in October 2007. Last year, a public inquiry found much of the RCMP  officers’ testimony wasn’t credible, but it will be up to two more years before the four stand trial for perjury. RCMP Constables Bill Bentley, Kwesi Millington and Gerry Rundel, and Cpl. Benjamin (Monty) Robinson are facing the charges regarding their testimony during the inquiry. Thomas Braidwood, the retired judge who headed the inquiry, described some of the Mounties’ testimony as shameful and said they had made “deliberate misrepresentations for the purpose of justifying their action.” That was 2010. It took another year for a special prosecutor to lay perjury charges. Only last week were trial dates confirmed for all four RCMP officers. Mother says 2-year wait ‘is too long’ Each will be tried separately, the first next October, the last a year later, in 2013. Two years is too long to wait. I have to do something again,” Dziekanski’s mother, Zofia Cisowski, told CBC News. Cisowski also said she has had no peace since her son’s fatal confrontation with the RCMP. David Eby, executive director of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, said the delay doesn’t serve anyone’s interest. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/story/2011/12/26/dziekanski-rcmp-perjury-trials.html

It’s time to replace the RCMP

 
Just when one thinks we’ve reached the final straw of frustration and upset with the RCMP, the national police force finds a way to produce another straw.

The list of Mountie misdeeds in B.C. is as notorious as it is lengthy — the botched Air India inquiry, the length of time it took to catch serial killer Robert Pickton, the airport Tasering death of Robert Dziekanski (and the upcoming perjury trials of the officers), the upcoming trial of Kelowna RCMP Const. Geoff Mantler for allegedly using excessive force in two arrests — and that’s just some of the examples.

Now, four senior RCMP officers investigating the Surrey Six murders have been charged with obstruction of justice, breach of trust and fraud, including one who allegedly had an affair with the ex-girlfriend of one of the killers.

B.C.’s policing contract with the RCMP expires next year and it is time for provincial politicians seriously to consider not renewing that contract.

Many British Columbians have lost faith in the RCMP and for good reason. B.C. should establish its own provincial police department and return some honour to policing.

Liars still is what we seem to know describes too many of our politicians, civil and public servants, police and RCMP included and not just the phone companies

It seems clear to me we have in too many places even in the Canadian governments now have  hired too many realy bad and incompetent managers, supervisors, all those persons now  who are too stupid to do a good job, for anyone who foolishly, stupidly  tries now to tells me that more money and more employee training will solve their employees ineffectiveness has already missed the boat and has now undeniably too hired already really bad people firstly  to start of with, these  same unacceptably  bad people who should all be fired and replaced with good workers immediately.

Liars and even alcoholics unacceptably too still is what we seem to know describes too many of our  politicians, civil and public servants, police and RCMP included!

I really do get rightfully upset when some no good immoral employee at a phone company lies and tries to blame me for not paying my monthly bill on time, or tries to screw me with their false CONTRACT DEMANDS,  or some civil servant lyingly tries to avoid work or falsely blame me for the delay in their work of looking after me.. as it has even happened to me too many times this year alone.

While it is true still that many of the  cops, civil and public servants, politicians, divorcees, priests and pastors  included now,  are still now mostly liars claiming to be REALY here to serve the good welfare of the people, even caring about their own  family too and yet they are rather still mainly building up their own castle, their own welfare, doing their ownthing, took the job mostly to get more wealth, but they will not find a full satisfaction, reward in what they do  rather   will likely learn is as  per (Proverbs 22:1 KJV)  A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold. (Ecclesiastes 7:1 KJV)  A good name is better than precious ointment; and the Day of death than the day of one’s birth.

THESE PERVESE PERSONS Expecting personally blessings, rewards,regards, honours like Haman in Esther 7:10  instead they are reaping the shame, exposures of their own bad doings.. and do see and the creditor has come.. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2011/06/14/and-the-creditor-is-come/ https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/02/11/toronto-councillor-adam-giambrone-lies/

We all can now too readily by know about the RCMP officers who gave their lying version even to the Queens courts as to why they had murdered an innocent Polish Immigrant Robert Dziekanski, 40 at the Vancouver airport.. read RCMP, police services, Revenue Canada, Civil and public servants

Many of us also do too readily know that too many of our politicians, public and civil servants  do lie and they do not even try to keep their original election promises too.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/05/18/rcmp-police-services-revenue-canada-civil-and-public-servants/

In the last year alone I have had major problems myself in getting decent, valid tangible services from Bell, Virgin Mobile Canada, Roger and Primus customer support and billing representatives just for a start.

Now months later I am even still waiting now even for too many months for a promised final updated accurate cell phone billing and related refund from my cell phone company Bell – Virgin Mobile Canada as well even though the Quebec law, Bill states that I should have it within 15 days http://postedat.wordpress.com/2011/05/03/virgin-mobile-canada-continues-to-falsely-lie-to-me-and-tries-falsely-to-hold-on-my-money-as-well-even-against-the-quebec-law-thread_id28512378%e2%80%9d/

and yes there are some good persons, but not in the big corporations, churches, politics or in the governments it seems these days

I happened to also rightfully believe that some of the most stupid, immoral politicians are those who legalize / make gambling, divorce, alcohol, immoralities, euthanasia more easily neglecting eventualy the high overall costs next to taxpayers, societies as a result..

Canada is already well known for having a perverse two tiered justice system

 

White persons and civil and public servants get false breaks, even in Quebec over the others… https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/05/03/the-liberals-in-quebec-undeniably-are-known-to-be-too-soft-on-abusers-criminals-bad-doctors-and-bad-nurses-bad-civil-and-bad-public-servants-as-well/

Four Royal Canadian Mounted police officers who used a Taser on a Polish immigrant who died at Vancouver’s airport are facing perjury charges for their testimony at a public inquiry. The decision Friday came nearly a year after members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police were lambasted by a commission examining the death of Robert Dziekanski, 40.But Richard Peck, a special prosecutor appointed to look into the case, declined to recommend charges against the officers relating to Robert Dziekanski’s death itself. Dziekanski died at Vancouver International Airport after being shocked five times with a Taser stun gun by police in 2007 in an incident that was widely seen around the world after the release of a witness’ amateur video. Polish Embassy officials said they’re disappointed that criminal charges aren’t recommended against the four police officers involved in the Taser related death of Robert Dziekanski. Commissioner Thomas Braidwood earlier had said that police were not justified in using the Taser on Dziekanski, and said the use of the stun gun and the physical struggle “contributed substantially to Mr. Dziekanski’s death.” The commission mandate prevented Braidwood from issuing a finding of criminal negligence, but he told reporters that accounts of the incident which the four officers gave under oath were not believable.  The police response was “shameful … they approached it like a pub brawl,” Braidwood said.
 
Canada is already well known for having a perverse two tiered justice system and the farce, circus gos on and one.. The various officers involved in the death of Robert Dziekanski and resulting RCMP management scandal should   be seen as representative of the entire RCMP, as the tip of the iceberg.. To address the obvious  yes there are problems within the RCMP, some very serious problems,  they lie, are not cost effective, abuse others for they are the Really Crazy Mounted Police.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2011/04/26/it-is-no-surprise-that-the-rcmp-too-often-cannot-catch-the-bad-guys/

The problem with the RCMP is not confined to a few bad apples

A Surrey Mountie has been charged with breach of trust for trafficking marijuana, possession of property obtained by crime and more than a dozen weapons offences. Const. David Clarke, 35, an RCMP member for 4 ½ years, was charged late Monday with 15 offences, including breach of trust for trafficking marijuana, possession of stolen marijuana and possession of various identification documents obtained by crime, the RCMP said Tuesday. He is also accused of possessing a number of unlicensed weapons, including a Glock 9-mm handgun, a Colt semiautomatic handgun, a Remington Mohawk semi-automatic rifle, an FN FAL semi-automatic rifle, a Mossberg pump-action shotgun and semi-automatic ammunition cartridges capable of holding more than 10 bullets, an alleged prohibited device.  Clarke is also among a number of officers being sued, along with the B.C. solicitor-general, by Travis Bader, the owner of a Delta firearms training business. Bader says he was treated like a criminal and subjected to two years of “personal abuse” by police, resulting in 10 unfounded charges against him that were stayed by the Crown earlier this year. Clarke is also facing an internal disciplinary hearing stemming from the criminal allegations. http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Mountie+faces+criminal+charges/4012317/story.html

The news that a Surrey Mountie is facing 15 criminal charges couldn’t have come at a worse time for our embattled national police force. Still reeling from the flak resulting from the brutal death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver International Airport, the RCMP is fighting to re-establish its once glorious reputation as a well-governed organization that serves and protects British Columbians. The problem with the RCMP is not confined to a few bad apples. The rot runs deeper. It involves a system-wide lack of accountability to those who pay its bills, namely regular taxpayers.  http://www.theprovince.com/Editorial+RCMP+runs+deeper+than+apples/4012212/story.html

Canada’s justice reviews are still a big farce

 
 
 
 
 
 

 You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors,  police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers, bad PERSONS   who STILL DO say that ALL OF  bad people, INCLUDING the ALCOHOLICS, the bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too.. Bad solicitor generals and bad Justice Ministers, bad Premiers, bad Prime Ministers as well should all be fired ASAP.
 
 
 Federal Public Safety Minister Vic Toews denies knowing at the time about Ontario’s decision to pass a law giving police heightened powers during the G20 summer summit in Toronto. It comes after the province’s ombudsman, André Marin, tabled a scathing report this week on security decisions at the G20 that he said lead to the “most massive compromise of civil liberties in Canadian history.” Marin’s report also raised questions about the federal role in the security decisions for the G8 and G20 summits in June.But Toews, the minister responsible for the RCMP, insisted the decision to give police special powers at the summit was a provincial matter that had nothing to do with him or his department.”You’re talking about the regulation that the McGuinty government passed? It was sometime after the G8/G20 event,” Toews told reporters Wednesday when asked about when he learned of Ontario’s passing changes to the Public Works Protection Act.” I certainly wasn’t aware of the concerns that were being raised with the bill.”That statement contradicts at least one of the findings of Marin, whose report suggests the RCMP and Toews’s department did know about the Toronto police request to have the controversial regulation passed. he ombudsman said the RCMP and, by extension, Toews’s department, should have known. Marin added that part of the reason why Toronto police turned to the Ontario government was that federal officials were reluctant to use an existing federal law for security. Liberal public safety critic Mark Holland said the federal government is simply refusing to be accountable. “It is absolutely ludicrous they would say they’re not responsible for security when they headed the task force that integrated and co-ordinated all security,” Holland said Wednesday. “On the one hand, they led it all. And on the other hand, they say they have no responsiblity.”  All three opposition parties are now calling for a full public inquiry into summit security, while Holland said attempts by the Commons public safety committee to get to the bottom of the federal role have gone nowhere.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/toews-denies-role-g20-police-law.html

  

Canadian Justice is too often an empty one. The establishment cover ups for it’s own and prevails.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/canadas-two-tiered-justice-system-opposed/

 

 
An Ontario police watchdog is not holding any officers accountable for separate incidents in which it says excessive force was likely used against two civilians at a G20 protest in Toronto. The SIU concluded that officers were not at fault for four of the incidents, citing either a lack of evidence to support the theory that excessive force was used, or an inability to determine how exactly the complainants sustained their injuries.
 
Did anyone really expect to see officers charged.
 
The security task force was given carte blanche to do whatever they felt necessary. The fate of individuals was sealed weeks before the summit.
 
it pretty hard to believe they could not track down some of their own officers, gotta say.
 
What did we expect? There will be no court room justice for any citizen who was assaulted by “peace officers” during the G20. The best we can do is exercise our free speech and video to expose and embarrass them for the thugs and liars they are.
 
Nothing like letting the police investigate themselves!
 
Anyone recall the news story about the same investigators finding no fault for officers who removed their name badges, the ones attached with velcro to allow for easy removal?
 
Our RCMP was deliberately used to assault peaceful Canadian citizens and to violate our rights. Time to get rid of this government.
 
Less justice translates into less respect for the officers
 
It’s no wonder cops run wild in this city, they don’t have anything to fear because they believe they can get away with anything. Speeding, excessive force, abuse of power on all grounds. So many stories out there.
 
SIU investigating the police is like asking bell to investigate bell or rogers to investigate rogers. They all think their innocent and usually aren’t.
 
Don’t get me wrong many good police officers out there and it’s usually the older ones, the rookies have this god complex going on..
 
 
They could not find any evidence of guilt cause they shut their eyes to it.
 
My having dealt with bad police, and medical investigators, useless watchdogs  I  too often do know their false approach, the lies they tell often too.. their mere false lying coverups do not change the reality or of  how many people do still see them now too.. In one case the RCMP investigator never talked to the bad cops, he rather investigated the person making the complaint, me. Mention the word cops, politician to an ordinary Canadian  Joe and you often get a reply.. they are “liars”.. what a reputation to live down.
 
 Ottawa itself  is in an uproar over the way police treated the now famous Stacy Bonds, and rightly so. The “justice” system is already showing that it places protecting its own above protecting the public.
 
The provincial attorney general is the one who should be doing something about the way the system handled the forceful strip search of the diminutive Ottawa woman, but that would mean admitting the Crown got this wrong. Judge Richard Lajoie’s ruling that the arrest of Bonds was unlawful, her detention violated Charter rights and the case was a “travesty.” Rather than create an independent review of the Crown’s actions, Bentley turned to the subordinate in charge of prosecution and asked him if he thought his people acted properly. What a surprise that he would say yes.  The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating, but the Bonds matter actually falls outside the organization’s mandate, which allows it to look at matters involving death, sexual assault or serious injury. There was no serious injury in the Bonds case and it would probably be pushing it to describe what occurred as a sexual assault. The SIU is likely to conclude that there is nothing it can do. The images of four male police officers forcing Bonds to the floor before the officer in charge cut her clothes off might seem outrageous to the public and the judge who tossed out the charge against Bonds, but the Crown has never identified a problem with what took place. The conduct of individual police officers in this case fell well below the standard that we should expect, but the Crown’s failure to perceive it is the most shocking element of this whole sorry situation.   A reasonable person, let alone an experienced Crown attorney, should have expressed concern to Chief White about the officers’ conduct. Nothing was said, even though Bonds’ defence lawyer raised concerns with the actions caught on tape. Two years after the event, the Crown was still arguing in front of a judge that the police officers were, in effect, the victims.  Despite his attorney general’s support for the Crown prosecutors, Premier Dalton McGuinty on Friday made a wishy-washy statement about maybe reviewing the Bonds affair to see if something could be learned from it. That’s not nearly good enough. The point was further amplified by the news Friday that two more cases have been thrown out because of similar police behaviour. In effect, the attorney general is saying it’s OK to arrest a woman on the flimsiest of pretexts, manhandle her, strip search her in disregard of guidelines established by the Supreme Court, toss her in a cell half-naked, then charge her with assaulting police. It’s an outrageous position. The system simply isn’t working. The Crown attorneys are the ones who are supposed to determine whether charges are in the public interest and if there is a reasonable prospect of conviction. They are meant to offer sober second thought and to prevent people being hauled into court simply on the say-so of the police. They haven’t done their job properly. Neither has the attorney general.  At this point, Dalton McGuinty is the only person who can restore some sanity to the system. The last thing the embattled premier needs is another controversy, but it’s time for an independent investigation and maybe even a new attorney general. The people give enormous powers to the police and the Crown with the trust that they will use those powers wisely. The Bonds incident has called that trust into question. Restoring the public’s faith is essential. This isn’t a situation where the people in charge can shrug and drive on. http://www.ottawacitizen.com/travel/Randall+this+system+seems+everyone+blind+justice/3891595/story.html
  
A democratic, free nation never needs to fear any oppression, perversity  intimidation even  by police or the state. 
  
But Stacy Bonds  a Canadian had been mistreated by Ottawa police in Canada’s  nation’s capital. Stacy Bonds, a young black person  with no criminal history managed to provoked the Ottawa Police into  horrific abusive acts and a false arrest   apparently for asking the same police as to  why police had stopped her for questioning. Stacy Bonds  was not  drunk nor behaving inappropriately. The police stopped her and asked her name; she provided it. After checking her name and finding nothing, the police told her she could go on her way. Bonds, in her perfect right, next had asked why she had been stopped in the first place. In response, the bad police officers had arrested her for public intoxication and handcuffed her.  Bonds was taken to Ottawa Police headquarters,where the  the judge noted that she was anything but “violent or aggressive.” In spite on her part   the lack of violence or aggression, Bonds was next assaulted by many police officers by  “two extremely violent knee hits in the back … and has her hair pulled back and her face shoved forward.”Next  Bonds was forced to the ground with a riot shield — though she was “not resisting with hands flailing or feet flailing,” as the judge had said — and subjected to a strip search. The video shows four male officers and one female officer taking part in, or watching, as Bonds was forced to the ground. The Judge Lajoie severely criticized police actions at the station, saying it was “an indignity toward a human being and should be denounced.”
  
Now in the absence of the  video recording, would Bonds have had a fair hearing? Unlikely!
  
Visibly “There is a malaise in the Justice system. How could these five police officers have taken part in the brutalization of Stacy Bonds and then also allowed charges for “assault police” to go ahead?
  
How could a Crown Attorney have failed to stay charges even on seeing the video? Of a more general rightful concern also is , how is it that people whose job it is to see justice done acted so unjustly? and likley more than once” 
 
For the sake of all Canadians another case like that of Stacy Bonds must be insured to never be allowed to happen again by exemplary punishing the bad Ottawa police officers and their bad supervisors, the related justice personnel as well. Clearly also  new enforced professionalism , ethics are now required in the Canadian justice system.  
   
The popularity of Robin Hood even centuries later personifies some great simple truths about what bad rulers do and do not do.. at both the federal and provincial levels. A good ruler runs the wheel over the wicked persons, even bad cops, those who abuse their offices, who live high on the hog too,  but also do  cares about the welfare of all the persons, the poor included.. Interesting that not only the Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper but now also the Liberal premier of three Provinces BC, Quebec and Ontario,and the Conservative Premier of Alberta  clearly are unpopular these days with the citizens cause they fall short in this areas. 
  
  
 A former RCMP murder investigator involved in the high-profile “Surrey Six” slayings has pleaded guilty to attempting to defraud the Mounties with a fake $700 overtime bill.  Steven Perreault, 39, a four-year Mountie and former member of the regional Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, has been fined $500, placed on probation for a year and ordered to perform 50 hours of community service. Perreault was driven to submit the fake claim because of money troubles. His fiancee wanted him to spend more time with her and financial pressure was causing him to work many hours of overtime. The Crown had been asking for a  two-month prison sentence with one year’s probation, arguing that Perreault, as a police officer, should be held to a higher standard.  If Perreault fulfils the conditions of his sentence, he will receive a discharge, leaving him without a criminal record.   http://www.theprovince.com/RCMP+officer+pleads+guilty+fraud+attempt/3754260/story.html  
  
A Vancouver area RCMP officer has been sentenced to 60 days in jail — to be served on weekends — after pleading guilty to two impaired driving charges. Vernon James Wilson, 56, also pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing bodily harm and driving while prohibited. He was also fined $1,100, put on two years probation, banned from driving for two years and handed a lifetime ban from consuming alcohol.  Wilson had been suspended from the force without pay since November 2009 after he was stopped in a car by police after he was seen urinating in a public place near Spanish Banks. One month earlier, Wilson flipped a vehicle on the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge in Vancouver while impaired, injuring two passengers. Wilson has been an RCMP officer for 16 years and will undergo an internal disciplinary hearing   http://ca.news.yahoo.com/b-c-mountie-gets-60-day-jail-sentence.html 

 

I too have often rightfully said and detailed as to how  that the RCMP Mounties, drive impaired, drunk, abuse others cheat lies steal, are cost ineffective as well! Too often lying, immoral, alcoholic RCMP officers are always an unacceptable problem as well.. Do note I have been rightfully complaining for half a century about the too often  bad, drunk, cost ineffective, pretentious  RCMP ever since they had abused me in the Canmore Alberta more and their revenue generating money pit where they make for decades millions and millions of dollars from tourist  leaving the Banff park

 
and cops falsely are still mainly going after the car speeders, the money making generating revenues and not the drunk drivers who cause the majority of the accidents too.. EVEN COPS, RCMP DRIVE WHEN DRUNK THESE DAYS IN CANADA
  
Drink Alcohol and Die « The non conformer’s Canadian Weblog   Drink Alcohol and Die or Kill is fast becoming Canada’s preoccupation, main goal, slogan.. Alcohol and alcoholics the unacceptable main cause of vehicular  accidents, domestic violence, and so many other ills… DRUNK DRIVING  KILLS AT LEAST 5 TIMES MORE PERSONS OVER SPEEDING FIRSTLY  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/01/02/alcohol/
   
 
The RCMP PR department in the past had lied about the number of drunk RCMP officers.  We can all know that too many RCMP officers wrongfully do lie, their bad managers included.. sadly they the RCMP  are also unacceptable hypocrites. they arrest others for drunk driving while many of them do the same thing too.. Cops need to be judged with a higher standard cause they are also to be exemplary..  Furthermore  the punishment for an RCMP who is caught drunk is absurd,, alcoholics tend not to change.. rather they get worse.. all cops who drive or work while they are drunk should be fired from their job period!
  
VERNON — An RCMP panel has ruled a Vernon Mountie who pleaded guilty earlier this year to a drinking driving offence will forfeit nine days of pay.Constable Jody Turpin refused to provide a breath sample in December 2009.He was fined $1,000 and lost his drivers license for a year.He will not be able to drive until March 2011.Turpin is now back to active duty. 
  
CBC News -Mistrial declared over Mountie’s undisclosed history A judge has declared a mistrial in the case of a man charged with a drinking-and-driving offence. (CBC)A Saskatoon judge has declared a mistrial in a drunk-driving case where the arresting officer had a history that was not disclosed. The case dates back to April when Darren Usselman was charged with having a  blood-alcohol level over .08 while operating his truck. The provincial court case went to trial in June. RCMP officer Sgt. Warren Gherasim, who did the roadside test, was the Crown’s main witness. Usselman was found guilty, but then defence lawyer Ron Piche stumbled across  Gherasim’s background. “It was learned that the sole witness, the main investigating officer, was himself the subject of disciplinary proceedings, professional standards and the like, in connection with an allegation of having consumed alcohol and  driven his vehicle and being in an accident,” Piche said. Gherasim had been sanctioned in 2006 for disgraceful conduct after rolling  his vehicle while off-duty. He admitted at an internal hearing that he had been drinking, but he was never charged. He was suspended without pay for eight days. A Supreme Court ruling in 2009 said that police must tell the Crown about  any misconduct records which may have a bearing on a case. Under disclosure rules, the Crown would then be required to disclose this  information to the defence. Before Usselman could be sentenced, Judge Marilyn Gray declared a mistrial.n her written decision she said, “Here the officer had been disciplined for the very conduct of which Mr. Usselman had been accused.” Piche said it would’ve come up in cross examination, had he known.”It may have influenced the result of the case, obviously, because  credibility is always an issue, not only with civilians but police witnesses as well,” he said.
 
CBC News A Saskatchewan RCMP officer has been charged with assault causing bodily harm following an incident in Melfort earlier this month.Charged is Const. Anthony Bear, 26, of La Loche. Bear was off-duty at the time of the incident and the victim is a man, the RCMP said.Bear was formally charged Thursday night and has been issued a promise to appear in Melfort provincial court on Dec. 14.No internal code of conduct process has been ordered, the RCMP said.Bear is currently not on active duty, the RCMP said. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/saskatchewan/story/2010/11/19/sk-rcmp-assault-charge-1011.html#ixzz15lqE0cJQ
   
Frank Paul, drunk and barely conscious, was left to freeze in an alleyway by Vancouver police officers on Dec. 5, 1998.  Ian Bush was shot in the back of the head in an interrogation room by an RCMP officer in northern B.C. on Oct. 29, 2005.  Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski was Tasered five times by four RCMP officers on Oct. 14, 2007, after he spent hours wandering the Vancouver International Airport looking for his mother.  The officers involved in all three of these cases were investigated by other police officers and cleared of wrongdoing. That’s because in British Columbia, when people are injured or killed while in police custody, other police officers determine whether misconduct has occurred.  These and other high-profile police-involved deaths has led to widespread outcry and two public inquiries — the Davies Commission in 2009 and the Braidwood Inquiry in 2010 — that strongly recommended police stop investigating themselves.  As a result, B.C. Attorney General Mike de Jong announced in June that the government would create an independent, civilian-led body to investigate injuries or deaths involving municipal police and RCMP. The Independent Investigations Office is scheduled to be up and running by summer 2011. Many say it’s long overdue.  SHOULD POLICE INVESTIGATE THEMSELVES?  British Columbia is not the first province to create a civilian-led organization to investigate incidents in which people have been harmed or killed in police custody. Ontario and Alberta already have such bodies and Manitoba and Nova Scotia are following suit. None of the other provinces has a civilian oversight body.  Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit was created after several controversial police shootings of black men in the late 1980s. Director Ian Scott said civilian oversight bodies typically arise after a police incident that incites public outrage. http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Special+Investigation+policing+police/3790737/story.html
  
 
Vancouver police cleared in man’s beating and one time too many now still.. Two Vancouver police officers who faced an allegation of abuse of authority have been cleared by Delta police investigating the incident. So what else is new . this is common in BC, the wrongful norm .The accusation of the police officers immoral actions  was made after the officers went to the wrong entrance of a home when investigating a domestic-violence call around 2:15 a.m. on Jan 21. A woman called 911 to report that her husband was drunk and had assaulted her. When these plainclothes officers arrived at the address provided, they believed Yao Wei Wu, 44, was their suspect and used force to arrest him, resulting in injuries to Wu’s face, legs and back. The  Delta police began to investigate what happened. The sole  Delta police investigator found that, although Wu had seen the officers’ badges and knew they were police, he resisted arrest, prompting the officers to pull him to the ground, where he hit his face. He was also punched in the shoulder a number of times. Of course the Delta police Chief Jim Cessford concluded the officers were acting in good faith and in the course of their duties at the time of the incident; that they had reasonable grounds to believe an assault had occurred; and that Wu was the suspect or an assaultive subject and that the officers used reasonable force to control him. “The police officers believed they were doing the right thing, that they were protecting a woman who was being assaulted,” Cessford said.

Cameron Ward, a lawyer for Wu, called the investigation a “farce.”Ward said his client did nothing wrong and the findings are shocking. “This investigation was a farce,” he said.  “It provides yet another example why police should not be investigating other police. It took Delta investigators more than nine months to investigate a brief incident in which the identities of those involved were immediately known.” Ward said investigators refused to believe Wu about the series of events. “In the end, the investigators chose to disbelieve Mr. Wu’s account of what happened to him, though he had no reason to lie. The investigators accepted the story of the two VPD members at face value, even though it is patently ridiculous and incredible. “The police-complaints process in British Columbia does a disservice to law-abiding citizens like Mr. Wu.”

Wu,  said he “My family and I feel extremely disappointed and angry,” he said.“I was beaten by the police for no reason at the door of my home in the morning of Jan. 21 this year. “The matter was investigated for over nine months and the investigation report says that the police had reason to beat me, that I was beaten by the police because I resisted arrest and failed to co-operate, and that I fell and injured my eye. “This is absolutely a distortion of the facts. The police version is completely false.” Vancouver police initially said Wu resisted arrest, but Chief Jim Chu subsequently apologized, saying the officers were called to a ­domestic-violence incident but had the wrong address.    http://www.theprovince.com/news/Vancouver+police+cleared+beating/3773655/story.html?cid=megadrop_story

   
VANCOUVER (CBC) – Despite being cleared in an investigation by an outside police force in connection with a man’s beating, two Vancouver police officers will be subject to a hearing set up by B.C.’s Police Complaint Commissioner.  Yao Wei Wu suffered serious injuries after Const. Nicholas Florkow and Const. Bryan London came to his door Jan. 21, responding to a call about a man beating a woman. Vancouver police later apologized after admitting the plainclothes officers got the wrong man, but a review of the incident by the Delta police concluded Nov. 2 that no charges would be laid. Police Complaints Commissioner Stan Lowe announced Tuesday there must still be a formal inquiry. “I have determined that a public hearing this matter is required to preserve or restore public confidence in the investigation of misconduct and the administration of police discipline,” said Lowe. “There is a reasonable prospect that a public hearing will assist in determining the truth.”Lowe said the hearing would investigate an allegation of abuse of authority by the two officers, who are accused of using unnecessary force in dealing with Wei. The hearing will be held by retired B.C. Supreme Court Justice B.M. Preston, Lowe said. No date for the hearing was announced
 
An Investigation by an outside police force.. ha ha ha
  
One hope for B.C.’s new Independent Investigations Office is that it will complete investigations in a timely manner, which is severely lacking in the current system. It’s not uncommon for probes of police-involved deaths or injuries to drag on for years, as many of the police investigators juggle the files along with many other cases. By comparison, Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit aims for a 30-day turnaround on its cases. But that goal isn’t always met when it comes to more complicated shooting or death cases because investigators have to wait for pathology and toxicology tests to make their way through backlogged labs.
 
DON’T BE STUPID AND BELIVE ALL THE LYING SPINS AS TO WHY IT TAKES SO LONG TO INVESTIGATE THE BAD COPS.. I have had many experiences in laying simple complaints against bad cops that never got anywhere cause the investigators were clearly pretenders.. in Contrast the investigations of all citizens clearly would not take so long..
 
Almost since my first job after graduating from university in Montreal I had next learned that people are not to be trusted, need to be supervised, and corruption still exists Canada wide too in construction, universities, municipalities, governments, corporations, amongst professionals and politicians as well.

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

Tax payer’s money abuses, false expense account statements, stealing, tax evasions,   obstruction of justice, cheating, lying,  drunkenness, impaired driving, pornography,  Adultery, VERBAL, PHYSICAL ABUSES, are all ESPECIALLY unacceptable for any civil and public servants. 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.  
 
While bad doctors, bad cops, bad nurses, bad professionals tend to get of Scott free.. but not the citizens. Mostly Perverse justice ministers still make promises do deal with the issues that lack real substances..What thus is always needed is the real  the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty persons, cops by an independent citizen based board, review and not rather masturbating bodies.. . So where is it ?

Bad policing as well  is not  uniquely a North American fact for these too often  bad guys with badges can work anywhere in the world.

And hey I really rightfully do get upset with the bad people who cover up for the  bad pastors, bad civil and public servants, bad cops.. and those who try to obstruct justice by trying to get rid of my posts like the bad RCMP too.  And tell the RCMP to leave my web pages alone.. I have about 30 internet sites and the internet pages that are troubled are the ones solely about the bad  RCMP or have cartoons about the bad RCMP. 

 

LAZY, INDIFFERENT, IMMORAL, BAD POLICE, BAD JUSTICE MINSTERS, BAD SOLICITOR GENERALS  is not a new aspect in Ottawa, Ontario and in the rest of Canada. SO NEVER  EXPECT A FULL HONEST INVESTIGATION WHEN CLEARY THE RESULTS WILL SHOW BAD COPS, BAD ATTORNEY GENERALS, BAD MINISTERS WHO HAVE NOT BEING DOING A GOOD JOB. ALL UNACCEPTABLE.  NOW WHY IS IT BAD PEOPLE DO NOT CHANGE NEXT BESIDE THE FACT THEY LIKE TO DO BAD THINGS, IT IS ALSO CAUSE THEY FALSELY  REFUSE TO ADMIT THE THINGS THEY DO ARE BAD.

 

Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.  “In the case of police, it is in everyone’s best interest that there is full, effective, independent, transparent and objective oversight. It goes without saying that an absence of effective oversight will inevitably result in the erosion of the community’s confidence in the police.”   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/10/25/canadas-bad-police-officers/

Undeniably the governments have failed to look after their own subordinates, our civil and public servants,  and to look adequately after all of us in Canada. unacceptable,

.

There was the Ongoing Montreal Corruptions while the Police , RCMP and the Federal, Quebec Governments did nothing about it.. Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves very ones best interest… too often still missing in the PROFESSIONAL BODIES, EVEN IN THE RCMP, police   forces, churches, ALL GOVERNMENTS  as well it seems too.

FALSE POLICE DELAYS even IN investigating OTHER POLICE
  .
The federal government spent nearly $858 million on the G8 and G20 summits in June, according to documents tabled Friday in the House of Commons. The RCMP received at least $330 million in funding to handle the G8 and G20 summits in Huntsville, Ont., and Toronto in June.  The RCMP’s expenses included:
$89.8 million for salaries, overtime and benefits.
$65.2 million for accommodation.
$15.1 million for perimeter security costs.
$15.4 million for radios.
$43.9 million for meals, travel and fleet requirements.
MANY DO THINK THAT THEIR Spending was, is ‘rather outrageous’ since the RCMP tend to be also very poorly supervised as many of us already do know.
.

The RCMP’s watchdog has launched an investigation into the conduct of the Mounties during the G8 and G20 summits in Toronto and Muskoka this June. The Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP (CPC) said the complaint, lodged by the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, relates to a number of allegations, including the Mounties’ possible involvement in the infiltration and surveillance of individuals or groups before and during the summits. The “public interest investigation” will also focus on the RCMP in relation to the use of force, detentions and arrests of people during the protests, the planning of the security fences and conditions at the Eastern Avenue detention facilities in Toronto.  The CPC said it has received 28 complaints regarding the RCMP’s role in the summits held in Ontario’s Muskoka region and downtown Toronto in late June. More than 1,000 people were arrested at the G20 meeting amid extensive damage to shops and cars in the city’s downtown.

Canada’s bad police officers

 

.RCMP

Yes instead of looking for real criminals and most of them are not caught the undeniable fact is that there are over 60,000 mostly useless police officers in Canada too

Canada’s Police   sponsored by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police and Transport Canada.   in a police initiative designed to save lives and reduce injuries on Canada’s roadways are  focusing on   “Four Big Killers” – impaired driving, failure to wear seatbelts, distracted driving and aggressive  driving but they still neglect the Biggest Killer and why?   Hospital  deaths due to infections, uncleanliness, errors.. Traffic tickets generate more money revenue for them as well

.

The Public remains generally skeptical about police investigating other police. Still an arm’s length investigation takes a step towards correcting the perception that there is a bias in favour of police in such investigations, all such investigations will have to be overseen by a civilian body, as recommended. We pay the police to handle all matters in a professional manner firstly.   And no more  . “No paid vacations”  for the cops awaiting trials..  All it takes for the bad guys to continue to do bad things is for the others wrongfully  to do nothing about it.

SPEED TRAP.jpg

The use of police force — against minorities and whites alike — is so poorly monitored that there is no precise accounting of how many citizens are abused, killed by officers, much less  the RELATED crucial details which tend to be  manifested only by the fact that citizens are posting unsettling cellphone Police videos and pictures of police brutality and because  of the many the records  are visible mostly from news media reports, some crucial details. Still details of  the race of officers and suspects, often are missing.  But still Canada has an ugly history of police abuses now too. The Police can do their part to repair their tarnished  images by firstly to acknowledging that  the person ‘s  rights, as an equal  the one right in front of them a person that the Police the force is supposed to be  serving and protecting. even  to protect  people under arrest.

.

The RCMP itself are the tip of a big iceberg of bad cops in Canada, all having also to do with the bad managers who hired them firstly . It seems every major  city tends to have bad cops too and why? that is unacceptable  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/07/20/canadas-police-forces/

A Toronto police officer has been charged with manslaughter in connection with the September death of a 26-year-old man. The province’s Special Investigations Unit announced that Constable David Cavanagh of the Toronto Police is facing one charge of manslaughter following an investigation into a September 29 altercation between police and 26-year-old Eric Osawe. According to the SIU, police executed a search warrant at an apartment on Dunbloor Road in Toronto, during which time there was an “interaction” between police and Mr. Osawe. Somehow Mr. Osawe sustained a fatal gunshot wound during the search. Const. Cavanagh will appear at the Ontario Court of Justice on January 6. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/edmonton/story/2010/11/26/edmonton-rcmp-officer-pleads-guilty.html

RCMP officer pleads guilty to prisoner assault. An Alberta RCMP officer has pleaded guilty to assaulting a prisoner in a detachment cell. Const. Desmond Sandboe admitted to beating a prisoner in a cell at the Lac La Biche detachment on Sept. 13, 2009. A videotape showing Sandboe assaulting the prisoner was shown in court Friday. In a statement, Supt. Joe Loran, acting commanding officer of K Division, said the incident is “appalling.” Loran said Sandboe, a nine-year veteran of the RCMP, has violated the public’s trust and has done a great disservice to other RCMP members. Loran has recommended Sandboe be suspended without pay. Sandboe will be sentenced on Jan. 27. An internal investigation is underway and will be completed after the criminal court process has ended.

CBC News Mistrial declared over Mountie’s undisclosed history A judge has declared a mistrial in the case of a man charged with a drinking-and-driving offence. (CBC)A Saskatoon judge has declared a mistrial in a drunk-driving case where the arresting officer had a history that was not disclosed. The case dates back to April when Darren Usselman was charged with having a  blood-alcohol level over .08 while operating his truck. The provincial court case went to trial in June. RCMP officer Sgt. Warren Gherasim, who did the roadside test, was the Crown’s main witness. Usselman was found guilty, but then defence lawyer Ron Piche stumbled across  Gherasim’s background. “It was learned that the sole witness, the main investigating officer, was himself the subject of disciplinary proceedings, professional standards and the like, in connection with an allegation of having consumed alcohol and  driven his vehicle and being in an accident,” Piche said. Gherasim had been sanctioned in 2006 for disgraceful conduct after rolling  his vehicle while off-duty. He admitted at an internal hearing that he had been drinking, but he was never charged. He was suspended without pay for eight days. A Supreme Court ruling in 2009 said that police must tell the Crown about  any misconduct records which may have a bearing on a case. Under disclosure rules, the Crown would then be required to disclose this  information to the defence. Before Usselman could be sentenced, Judge Marilyn Gray declared a mistrial.n her written decision she said, “Here the officer had been disciplined for the very conduct of which Mr. Usselman had been accused.” Piche said it would’ve come up in cross examination, had he known.“It may have influenced the result of the case, obviously, because  credibility is always an issue, not only with civilians but police witnesses as well,” he said.

Bear was off-duty at the time of the incident and the victim is a man, the RCMP said.Bear was formally charged Thursday night and has been issued a promise to appear in Melfort provincial court on Dec. 14.No internal code of conduct process has been ordered, the RCMP said.Bear is currently not on active duty, the RCMP said. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/saskatchewan/story/2010/11/19/sk-rcmp-assault-charge-1011.html

Now in reality, in principle,  the RCMP and the police do owe a duty to protect all of the people in their custody. If they fail to discharge that duty, if they ignore their duty and harm arises, the RCMP and the police they now would be very likley legally, personally liable in these circumstances.

WHITEHORSE – No criminal charges will be laid against the Mounties involved in the case of a man who died in Whitehorse after lying on the floor of a jail cell for 13 hours vomiting repeatedly. Forty-three-year-old Raymond Silverfox had been arrested in December of 2008 for being drunk in public and after he became unresponsive in the cell, he was moved to hospital, where he later died. A coroner’s inquest ruled he died of natural causes, noting that one factor was an acute infection caused by his own vomit. RCMP Insp. Brendan Fitzpatrick says a thorough investigation by the Mounties and an independent legal assessment by the Public Prosecution Service of Canada have determined no criminal charges should be laid. However, Fitzpatrick says the five officers involved in the incident still face an internal code of conduct review of their actions, and the RCMP’s Public Complaints Commission is still investigating. The B.C. Civil Liberties Association filed a complaint with the commission, charging that an audio recording played at the inquest revealed the officers made fun of Silverfox as he lay on the cell floor and complained about having to clean up after him.

  Vancouver police cleared in man’s beating and one time too many now still.. Two Vancouver police officers who faced an allegation of abuse of authority have been cleared by Delta police investigating the incident. So what else is new . this is common in BC, the wrongful norm .The accusation of the police officers immoral actions  was made after the officers went to the wrong entrance of a home when investigating a domestic-violence call around 2:15 a.m. on Jan 21. A woman called 911 to report that her husband was drunk and had assaulted her. When these plainclothes officers arrived at the address provided, they believed Yao Wei Wu, 44, was their suspect and used force to arrest him, resulting in injuries to Wu’s face, legs and back. The  Delta police began to investigate what happened. The sole  Delta police investigator found that, although Wu had seen the officers’ badges and knew they were police, he resisted arrest, prompting the officers to pull him to the ground, where he hit his face. He was also punched in the shoulder a number of times. Of course the Delta police Chief Jim Cessford concluded the officers were acting in good faith and in the course of their duties at the time of the incident; that they had reasonable grounds to believe an assault had occurred; and that Wu was the suspect or an assaultive subject and that the officers used reasonable force to control him. “The police officers believed they were doing the right thing, that they were protecting a woman who was being assaulted,” Cessford said.
.

Cameron Ward, a lawyer for Wu, called the investigation a “farce.”Ward said his client did nothing wrong and the findings are shocking. “This investigation was a farce,” he said.  “It provides yet another example why police should not be investigating other police. It took Delta investigators more than nine months to investigate a brief incident in which the identities of those involved were immediately known.” Ward said investigators refused to believe Wu about the series of events. “In the end, the investigators chose to disbelieve Mr. Wu’s account of what happened to him, though he had no reason to lie. The investigators accepted the story of the two VPD members at face value, even though it is patently ridiculous and incredible. “The police-complaints process in British Columbia does a disservice to law-abiding citizens like Mr. Wu.” Wu,  said he “My family and I feel extremely disappointed and angry,” he said.“I was beaten by the police for no reason at the door of my home in the morning of Jan. 21 this year. “The matter was investigated for over nine months and the investigation report says that the police had reason to beat me, that I was beaten by the police because I resisted arrest and failed to co-operate, and that I fell and injured my eye. “This is absolutely a distortion of the facts. The police version is completely false.” Vancouver police initially said Wu resisted arrest, but Chief Jim Chu subsequently apologized, saying the officers were called to a ­domestic-violence incident but had the wrong address.  http://www.theprovince.com/news/Vancouver+police+cleared+beating/3773655/story.html?cid=megadrop_story

Last December, he was charged with trying to extort about $5,000 from Shawn Banfield, a convicted drug dealer. He was suspended from the force at that time. In a separate case, Buchanan also faces charges of assaulting a woman in Cape Breton last August.

A former RCMP murder investigator involved in the high-profile “Surrey Six” slayings has pleaded guilty to attempting to defraud the Mounties with a fake $700 overtime bill.  Steven Perreault, 39, a four-year Mountie and former member of the regional Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, has been fined $500, placed on probation for a year and ordered to perform 50 hours of community service. Perreault was driven to submit the fake claim because of money troubles. His fiancee wanted him to spend more time with her and financial pressure was causing him to work many hours of overtime. The Crown had been asking for a  two-month prison sentence with one year’s probation, arguing that Perreault, as a police officer, should be held to a higher standard.  If Perreault fulfils the conditions of his sentence, he will receive a discharge, leaving him without a criminal record.  http://www.theprovince.com/RCMP+officer+pleads+guilty+fraud+attempt/3754260/story.html

 VANCOUVER — A Richmond RCMP officer has been fired after a disciplinary board found he shoplifted from a grocery store and then lied about it to his commanding officer.Const. Khomphet (Kam) Khamphoune was caught shoplifting $133 worth of over-the-counter drugs while off-duty on May 29, 2008, by a security guard at an Extra Foods in east Vancouver.He pleaded guilty to theft a year later and was given a conditional discharge.Following his sentencing, Khamphoune was ordered to appear before an RCMP disciplinary board. A copy of that board’s decision, recently obtained by The Vancouver Sun, concludes Khamphoune’s conduct was “disgraceful” and that he can no longer serve as a police office. The board, made up of three senior Mounties, found Khamphoune’s theft alone was a firing offence. But it noted he made the situation even worse when, in trying to justify why he shouldn’t be suspended without pay, he lied to his superior.  The decision to fire Khamphoune was made by the RCMP board in October 2009. However, a written copy of its decision was only recently released in response to a request from The Sun   http://www.vancouversun.com/health/Richmond+Mountie+fired+shoplifting+then+lying+about+superiors/3702610/story.html

CALGARY (CBC) – A 15-year veteran of the Calgary Police Service has been charged in connection with a vehicle collision that seriously injured a motorist nearly two years ago.  Sgt. Tony Braile was charged Wednesday with dangerous driving causing bodily harm, the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team announced at a news conference. “It was the manner in which he was operating the motor vehicle at the time of the incident, which was a marked patrol vehicle,”  Purvis said that in the early hours of Dec. 15, 2008, police began pursuing a vehicle believed to have been stolen. Braile is alleged to have trailed the vehicle for nearly an hour, ignoring several police policies and procedures, said Deputy Chief Trevor Daroux. “The incident concluded with a motor vehicle collision that resulted in member of the public being injured. As result, a service investigation was initiated,” Daroux said. A 46-year-old male motorist was seriously injured in the crash at Fifth Street and Fifth Avenue S.W., which didn’t directly involve any police cruisers. Braile was suspended from duty with pay four months ago, Daroux said. There are  questions about why it took so long for the investigation to be completed. Braile will make his first court appearance next month. ASIRT is the provincial agency that investigates serious cases of death or injury that may have resulted from the actions of a police officer.

“To many police officer abuse the power given them by “we the people.”  These are  normal behavior not isolated incidents  by police officers that are nothing more than criminal wearing  badges!  This has to stop! We law-abiding citizens have to get more involved in our communities and push for laws that treat corrupt officers the same way they treat the rest of us! I’m sick and tired to always have to witness police officers dashing in front of you at high-speed, changing lanes without turn signals, only to get out of the daily bumper to bumper traffic that is the norm here in S. Florida. While talking on their cell phones, or parked at any time blocking traffic for no clear reason other than their disregard for the law! They are to carried away with the authority which law-abiding citizen respect, but that they don’t give back to us when they pull us over. Like they do on many occasions just to meet their quota for the month. This is sad to the professional police officers that do the right thing. Yet unfortunately that is what to many time the average citizen encounters when dealing with those that are supposed to ” PROTECT AND SERVE”.  I just hope that we the law-abiding citizen get more involved in our communities and not be afraid to allow our voices to be heard.”

After a year-long investigation, the RCMP announced in June 2008 that no criminal charges would be laid against the officers involved. In February 2010, Edmonton police decided three officers would face an internal disciplinary hearing.

Once again thanks to the video the whole truth was exposed and  the footage tarnished the supposed police professionalism, In the brutal police assault on 27-year-old Stacy Bonds,  an assault that was so blatant and so revolting ,  even, police lovers,  all those who reflexively defend all of the police conduct had to pause and consider the negative meaning of what happened at the Ottawa police station on Sept. 26, 2008.  How many other assault police’ charges are merely trumped up for the purpose of concealing the officials wrongdoings?  A democratic, free nation never needs to fear any oppression, perversity  intimidation even  by police or the state.  But Stacy Bonds  a Canadian had been mistreated by Ottawa police in Canada’s  nation’s capital. Stacy Bonds, a young black person  with no criminal history managed to provok  the Ottawa Police into  horrific abusive acts and a false arrest   apparently merely for asking the same police as to  why police had stopped her for questioning. Stacy Bonds  was not  drunk nor behaving inappropriately. The police stopped her and asked her name; she provided it. After checking her name and finding nothing, the police told her she could go on her way. Bonds, in her perfect right, next had asked why she had been stopped in the first place. In response, the bad police officers had arrested her for public intoxication and handcuffed her.  Bonds was taken to Ottawa Police headquarters,where the  the judge noted that she was anything but “violent or aggressive.” In spite on her part   the lack of violence or aggression, Bonds was next assaulted by many police officers by  “two extremely violent knee hits in the back … and has her hair pulled back and her face shoved forward.”Next  Bonds was forced to the ground with a riot shield — though she was “not resisting with hands flailing or feet flailing,” as the judge had said — and subjected to a strip search. The video shows four male officers and one female officer taking part in, or watching, as Bonds was forced to the ground. The Judge Lajoie severely criticized police actions at the station, saying it was “an indignity toward a human being and should be denounced.” Now in the absence of the  video recording, would Bonds have had a fair hearing? Unlikely! Visibly “There is a malaise in the Justice system. How could these five police officers have taken part in the brutalization of Stacy Bonds and then also allowed charges for “assault police” to go ahead? How could a Crown Attorney have failed to stay charges even on seeing the video? Of a more general rightful concern also is , how is it that people whose job it is to see justice done acted so unjustly? and likley more than once”  For the sake of all Canadians another case like that of Stacy Bonds must be insured to never be allowed to happen again by exemplary punishing the bad Ottawa police officers and their bad supervisors, the related justice personnel as well. Clearly also  new enforced professionalism , ethics are now required in the Canadian justice system.
 .
Why did it take so long to deal with a very shocking, troubling, disturbing   incident where a  Video confirms a  2008 strip search of a woman Stacy Bonds by the Ottawa police and it now clearly shakes the citizen’s  confidence rightfully in all authorities.
 .
The 27-year-old woman was left topless in a cell at an Ottawa police station for three hours in soiled pants.  Justice Richard Lajoie last month stayed charges of public intoxication and assault against Stacy Bonds and criticized the conduct of police.The video was released Thursday after. Lajoie said he was “appalled” that Bonds was strip searched in the presence of male officers, calling the incident an “indignity.”.The video, which shows officers at the Elgin Street detachment confining Stacy Bonds and kneeing her in the back before she is wrestled to the floor, where her shirt and bra are cut off. But he said he was disturbed by the event.The Special Investigations Unit is is only now probing the incident..”it’s very important that we get to the bottom of this and that people know exactly what happened and what we need to do to ensure that it doesn’t happen again,””From time to time things happen which shake us, and it’s very important that we get to the bottom of this and that people know exactly what happened and what we need to do to ensure that it doesn’t happen again,” , Premier Dalton McGuinty also said “Every time something untoward like this happens, it shakes our confidence.” Officers need to remember this was someone’s sister, someone’s daughter and _”for all they knew, this might have been somebody’s mother,” added McGuinty. “We’ve got to be very, very careful about how we deal with each other and it’s very important that police act in keeping with what is right and appropriate and lawful,” he said.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/canada
CALGARY POLICE  SERVICE (2)
.
Ottawa itself  is in an uproar over the way police treated the now famous Stacy Bonds, and rightly so. The “justice” system is already showing that it places protecting its own above protecting the public. The provincial attorney general is the one who should be doing something about the way the system handled the forceful strip search of the diminutive Ottawa woman, but that would mean admitting the Crown got this wrong. Judge Richard Lajoie’s ruling that the arrest of Bonds was unlawful, her detention violated Charter rights and the case was a “travesty.” Rather than create an independent review of the Crown’s actions, Bentley turned to the subordinate in charge of prosecution and asked him if he thought his people acted properly. What a surprise that he would say yes.  The province’s Special Investigations Unit is investigating, but the Bonds matter actually falls outside the organization’s mandate, which allows it to look at matters involving death, sexual assault or serious injury. There was no serious injury in the Bonds case and it would probably be pushing it to describe what occurred as a sexual assault. The SIU is likely to conclude that there is nothing it can do. The images of four male police officers forcing Bonds to the floor before the officer in charge cut her clothes off might seem outrageous to the public and the judge who tossed out the charge against Bonds, but the Crown has never identified a problem with what took place. The conduct of individual police officers in this case fell well below the standard that we should expect, but the Crown’s failure to perceive it is the most shocking element of this whole sorry situation.   A reasonable person, let alone an experienced Crown attorney, should have expressed concern to Chief White about the officers’ conduct. Nothing was said, even though Bonds’ defence lawyer raised concerns with the actions caught on tape. Two years after the event, the Crown was still arguing in front of a judge that the police officers were, in effect, the victims.  Despite his attorney general’s support for the Crown prosecutors, Premier Dalton McGuinty on Friday made a wishy-washy statement about maybe reviewing the Bonds affair to see if something could be learned from it. That’s not nearly good enough. The point was further amplified by the news Friday that two more cases have been thrown out because of similar police behaviour. In effect, the attorney general is saying it’s OK to arrest a woman on the flimsiest of pretexts, manhandle her, strip search her in disregard of guidelines established by the Supreme Court, toss her in a cell half-naked, then charge her with assaulting police. It’s an outrageous position. The system simply isn’t working. The Crown attorneys are the ones who are supposed to determine whether charges are in the public interest and if there is a reasonable prospect of conviction. They are meant to offer sober second thought and to prevent people being hauled into court simply on the say-so of the police. They haven’t done their job properly. Neither has the attorney general.  At this point, Dalton McGuinty is the only person who can restore some sanity to the system. The last thing the embattled premier needs is another controversy, but it’s time for an independent investigation and maybe even a new attorney general. The people give enormous powers to the police and the Crown with the trust that they will use those powers wisely. The Bonds incident has called that trust into question. Restoring the public’s faith is essential. This isn’t a situation where the people in charge can shrug and drive on. http://www.ottawacitizen.com/travel/Randall+this+system+seems+everyone+blind+justice/3891595/story.html

Only by a full Public scrutiny and next rightfully  holding them all as well to the highest standards can we change the bad police, bad justice culture that abuses ordinary persons and  leads to cases like Bonds’s or that of Robert Dziekanski.

The Police statements in Canada too often now are misdetections,   a public-relations stunt, or just another attempt to not address the real unacceptable issues. Even clearly the institutionalized and systematic racism that marginalizes black Canadian youths and, sadly, forces some of them into a life of crime. Whatever the motivation, there is definitely some ‘politicking’ going on here. In Canada, no persons ought to be above the law, including police officers.Too many Canadians are very disappointed at how members of the  Police act abusively towards the citizens too often as well
.
Many even more disappointed that the officers involved in the action have not been charged. If any other Canadians did to Bonds what those officers did I cannot imagine that the state would not prosecute. And now, if Bonds pursues a civil lawsuit against the Ottawa police, it will likely be Ottawa taxpayers who foot the bill, not the individual officers. Where’s the justice?

30 days for such a serious abuse is a mockery of Justice now too .

While bad doctors, bad cops, bad nurses, bad professionals tend to get of Scott free.. but not the citizens. Mostly Perverse justice ministers still make promises do deal with the issues that lack real substances..What thus is always needed is the real  the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty persons, cops by an independent citizen based board, review and not rather masturbating bodies.. . So where is it ?   . Alcohol is still more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin and crack cocaine, according to a new study.Heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine, or crystal meth, were the most lethal to individuals. When considering their wider social effects, alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine were the deadliest. But overall, alcohol outranked all other substances, followed by heroin and crack cocaine. Experts said alcohol scored so high because it is so widely used and has devastating consequences not only for drinkers but for those around them. When drunk in excess, alcohol damages nearly all organ systems. It is also connected to higher death rates and is involved in a greater percentage of crime than most other drugs, including heroin. All governments should consider more education programs and raising the price of alcohol so it isn’t as widely available.    “What governments decide is illegal is not always based on science,”  for monetary considerations about revenue and taxation, like those garnered from the alcohol and tobacco industries, may influence decisions about which substances to regulate or outlaw. “Drugs that are legal cause at least as much damage, if not more, than drugs that are illicit,”     http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/101031/health/health_eu_med_dangerous_alcohol

.
Furthermore now, in Quebec, despite many polls showing the citizens  overwhelming desire for a public inquiry into allegations of corruption and collusion to fix prices in the construction industry,  a year long police investigation  has yet to finger any big names

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 Tax payer’s money abuses, false expense account statements, stealing, tax evasions,   obstruction of justice, cheating, lying,  drunkenness, impaired driving, pornography,  Adultery, VERBAL, PHYSICAL ABUSES, are all ESPECIALLY unacceptable for any civil and public servants. 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. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.  “In the case of police, it is in everyone’s best interest that there is full, effective, independent, transparent and objective oversight. It goes without saying that an absence of effective oversight will inevitably result in the erosion of the community’s confidence in the police.”

 .
Provincial Governments, cops too  do not want to reduce gambling or alcohol consumption for it is a great money maker for them, and too many Canadian politicians and cops do like to booze..
.
The problem with the Police consuming alcohol, is that alcohol not only makes you a mental retard cause it does now kills your brain cell, alcohol also kills your emotions of compassion, and  reasoning ability now as well.. We all also tend to know how many cops and others do often despise others, mock the skid row persons, native alcoholic, drunks and yet hypocritically they do the same thing, even their peers.. consuming a vast amount of alcohol and they cannot see what negative effect it has on their personal life

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.
.
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

They are covering up for their own again

 https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/11/26/canadas-justice-reviews-are-still-a-big-farce/
 
 VICTORIA – A retired B.C. judge has ruled two Victoria police officers abused their authority when they left a teenaged girl tethered in a jail cell for several hours five years ago. Allan Filmer, who headed a public hearing into the incident, has ordered written reprimands be given to constables Ryan O’Neil and Brian Asmussen. Fifteen-year-old Willow Kinloch was arrested in 2005 for being drunk in public and placed in a cell, where police claimed she became verbally abusive and combative. Video from her cell shows her being wrestled to the floor by two officers, tied up and then tethered for four hours to the door of the padded cell. Kinloch was awarded $60,000 after a civil trial, although Victoria police and the City of Victoria appealed, eventually leading to an out-of-court settlement. The public hearing was ordered by the Office of the B.C. Police Complaint Commissioner after a Victoria Police Department investigation and separate review found the allegations against the two officers were unsubstantiated. (CFAX) http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100929/national/tethered_teen_hearing  and yeah we all do seem to know what Police reviews are like.. masturbations.. 
 
You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors,  police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers, bad PERSONS   who STILL DO say that ALL OF  bad people, INCLUDING the ALCOHOLICS, the bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too.. Bad solicitor generals as well should be fired ASAP.
 
NOW WHY IS IT BAD PEOPLE DO NOT CHANGE NEXT BESIDE THE FACT THEY LIKE TO DO BAD THINGS, IT IS ALSO CAUSE THEY FALSELY  REFUSE TO ADMIT THE THINGS THEY DO ARE BAD.

BCCLA supports RCMP complaints body that RCMP not self-investigate The BCCLA endorsed a key recommendation that the RCMP no longer investigate itself in today’s report by the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP (CPC) into the death of Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver International Airport.  “The report finds that the investigation was flawed in many respects, including that the supervising officer at the scene of the death was present at the briefing of the investigative team,” said Robert Holmes, President of the BCCLA. “With these kinds of persistent and obvious problems with RCMP investigations, it would be difficult for the CPC to come to any other recommendation.”  The CPC, the police chiefs of British Columbia, and the B.C. Civil Liberties Association and other key police accountability organizations now all agree that the RCMP, along with municipal police forces in B.C., can no longer investigate themselves and at the same time maintain public confidence in their work.   “The ‘integrated’ team that investigated the Dziekanski death were all RCMP officers,” said Holmes. “This is the team that was called in to show the independence of the investigative process when someone dies in RCMP custody. The government needs to act now to ensure that there are no more flawed investigations when people die at the hands of the police, and that these obvious conflicts of interest are addressed.”  http://www.bccla.org/pressreleases/09CPC.html 

BCCLA calls for independent review of three police deaths in ten months The BCCLA is seeking an independent review into how three men could die in a period of just ten months in police cells in Saskatoon, a city of 257,000 residents. In comparison, Vancouver, which is twice as large as Saskatoon, has had no deaths in its cells to the knowledge of the Association since the death of Daniel Serbeh on December 7, 2007.  “If three men die in ten months at any facility whose mandate is not primary health care, the government should demand answers,” said Jason Gratl, Vice-President of the BCCLA. “If the Saskatoon police can’t keep their charges alive, Saskatoon residents deserve an independent review that explains why people in custody keep dying and how Police can put a stop to it.”  Christopher Jason Hiebert (September 9, 2009), Brandon Travis Daniels (July 2, 2010), and a man whose name was not released (July 16, 2010) died in Saskatchewan Police Service custody between September 2009 and July 2010. Daniels, the most recent death, was a 19-year-old first nations man arrested while visiting friends in Saskatoon.  According to media reports, the Saskatoon Police Service recently ordered an internal review of its detention practices in the wake of Daniels’ death.  “All deaths in police custody have a public dimension, but three deaths in the space of less than a year is a public emergency,” says Gratl.  “This problem should not be under wraps.” Read the BCCLA’s letter to the Saskatchewan Public Complaints Commission here >>  http://www.bccla.org/pressreleases/10Saskatchewan.html 

  

Conflict between RCMP and aboriginal community in Williams Lake must be investigated and resolved, says BCCLA The B.C. Civil Liberties Association is pointing to three videos of problematic encounters between aboriginal people and Williams Lake RCMP, a local business owner’s complaint about racism that was apparently never investigated, and the actions of the detachment head in cutting off a local media outlet that tried to tell a story about the issue as evidence of a major problem in the community. “We’re seeing video of aboriginal people tied to a chair for hours, tackled when sitting on a bench by multiple RCMP officers, including the head of the detachment, and being punched for refusing to immediately respond to commands. We’re hearing that media outlets that try to report on RCMP and aboriginal relationships are being cut off from receiving press releases. A business owner said RCMP officers were harassing his aboriginal customers and apparently nobody investigated that allegation. Something is really, really wrong in Williams Lake,” says Robert Holmes, President of the BCCLA.  The BCCLA has written a letter to the Chair of the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, the Solicitor General of B.C. and the head of the RCMP in B.C., Gary Bass to ask them to act immediately to replace the detachment head in Williams Lake and begin repairing community relations there. Williams Lake was the subject of a provincial inquiry called the Cariboo-Chilcotin Justice Inquiry in 1993 that made extensive recommendations around reforming policing and police/aboriginal relationships in the area. “In 1993, Judge Anthony Sarich presented his final report of the Cariboo-Chilcotin Justice Inquiry. The Inquiry explored the relationship with Indigenous Peoples of the Cariboo-Chilcotin and the B.C. justice system.  Judge Sarich noted that at the first meeting with Chiefs and community members, he was challenged with the question ‘Why should we trust you?’ All these years later, the question still resonates,” said Grand Chief Stewart Phillip President of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs.  “When officers entrusted with the safety of all conduct themselves in the manner displayed in the Gilbert and Billy videos, the work of the Cariboo-Chilcotin Justice Inquiry did not change the justice system in Williams Lake. The Indigenous leadership will not stand idly by and watch justice be denied. BCCLA letter to Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP and Deputy Commissioner Bass >> http://www.bccla.org/pressreleases/10Williams_Lake2.html     

RCMP must fix women’s rights violations in Kamloops jail Following news of allegations of voyeuristic activities by male RCMP and civilian guards at the RCMP lockup in Kamloops, the BCCLA is calling for improved conditions in the women’s cells in the city, including basic things like female guards for female prisoners and access to showers. The group says the conditions in the cells are discriminatory, as male prisoners have access to these basic services and women don’t. “When we were on our northern tour, we heard about abysmal conditions for women in RCMP cells in Kamloops,” said David Eby, Executive Director of the BCCLA. “No showers, no visitors other than lawyers, no toothbrushing for up to five days in RCMP cells. Men get daily showers, family visits and visits from advocacy groups in a fully equipped facility. We were going to wait for our final report to raise this issue, but given these new developments, we expect the RCMP to act now to at least provide women equal access to services.”  The BCCLA says that during its visit in Kamloops this past month, local non-profit service providers told the Association that women are regularly watched by men even while using the washroom. The BCCLA also heard that service providers are routinely barred from bringing women feminine hygiene supplies and new clothes for court. The service providers also told the Association that because there is no women’s remand facility in the city, and that the closest full remand facility for women is in Prince George or Surrey, women prisoners only get access to showers one day per week.  “There is no excuse for having exclusively male guards guarding female prisoners, or that women can’t shower or brush their teeth for five days, or that women can’t make themselves presentable for court, or that men aren’t treated in the same way,” said Eby. “The RCMP should have seen issues like this most recent one coming a mile away, and we hope they make the general conditions for women in cells in Kamloops a priority in their current investigation.”  http://www.bccla.org/pressreleases/10Kamloops.html

Decades and decades later the police are still  covering up for their own again and again but the police are not the only bad professionals who do this these days as well, so do the Hospitals, doctors, nurses, civil and public servants, governments…

When it comes to dealing with the rightful needs, complaints of the ordinary citizens our Canadian civil and public servants, politicians and their representatives too, and most church pastors now too, they are still mostly unacceptable liars and  PRETENDERS, LAZY, GOOD FOR NOTHING PERSONS,  and that has been mostly my undeniable experiences the last 4 decades now too..  How about having now some real professionalism. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/09/25/accountablity/
 
What should not come as a surprise to anyone in Canada is how many of the cops still do  drink and drive drunk next still.. RCMP included, and why so many cops do not prosecute any other drunk drivers even all year.. and what else in the unacceptable perversties?
OTTAWA – The RCMP has been sitting on a pile of complaint findings for months, sparking concern about timely justice for those who have grievances against the national police force. The Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP says that as of last week it had been waiting 300 days or more for final signoff from the Mounties on 11 complaint investigations. Among them was a high-profile probe into the case of Robert Dziekanski, who died after being stunned with a Taser at Vancouver airport in October 2007. Another 11 reports have been on the RCMP’s desk for between 180 and 300 days, while a further 22 were sent to the force between 30 and 180 days ago. The Mounties say they’ve simply been too busy with the Olympics and international leaders’ summits to keep up. 

Among the other reports awaiting an RCMP response are the commission’s probes of:

– The RCMP arrest of Robert Knipstrom of Chilliwack, B.C., who died in hospital in November 2007 days after being Tasered, pepper sprayed and hit with a baton;

– The Mounties’ investigation into how a Conservative MP listened in on a 2008 conference call of the federal NDP caucus

.. the lack of legislated time limits for the RCMP to respond to interim complaint findings was “an intolerable situation.” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100914/national/rcmp_complaints_backlog

RCMP discipline process can drag on for years, documents show.  OTTAWA — The longest wait, right now, is six years.  The country’s storied national police force is slowly processing internal affairs cases, considered serious and disgraceful, against more than 110 RCMP officers, some of whom have waited a long time to defend themselves at formal disciplinary hearings.  In fact, 107 of the internal disciplinary cases against RCMP officers have not even been scheduled to be heard, according to documents obtained by the Ottawa Citizen. The allegations include accusations of using the RCMP database to spy on an ex-girlfriend’s new lover, assaulting a pregnant woman, drugging and raping a woman, groping fellow Mounties and reckless use of force. Although the formal disciplinary hearings are public, the Mounties do not, as a matter of course, publicize the allegations until a hearing, presided over by senior officers, is convened. There are at least 47 RCMP officers on suspension with pay awaiting their fate — including some who collect their salaries even though they have already admitted gross misconduct. Some RCMP officers, for various reasons, have been waiting up to six years for their disciplinary hearings to be held. Earlier this year, RCMP Commissioner William Elliott told an Ottawa Citizen editorial board that internal discipline moves at a “glacial” pace.  Elliott, the force’s first civilian commissioner, said the process is too slow, cumbersome and “far too legalistic.”  The commissioner also said the force needs to revise the array of sanctions.  As it stands now, the RCMP brass, by law, can punish its bad-apple officers by docking them 10 days pay. Short of dismissal, that’s the harshest penalty.   http://www.vancouversun.com/news/RCMP+discipline+process+drag+years+documents+show/3542034/story.html

EDMONTON (CBC) – Alberta’s Law Enforcement Review Board has ordered Edmonton’s police chief to charge an officer with using excessive force for deploying a stun gun on a man four times during an arrest in December 2003. The ruling, released Tuesday, directs Chief Mike Boyd to charge Const. Aubrey Zalaski with unlawful or unnecessary exercise of authority under the Police Service Regulation. The ruling came after the board heard a complaint from Timothy Ferguson filed after a 2008 internal police investigation found there wasn’t enough evidence to convict any of the officers involved in his arrest. The board also found the police internal investigation into the matter to be inadequate

Likley not the first time too.. Not charged for drunk driving, and why was that?? How many more get away with it too?

NOVA. SCOTIA (CBC) – An investigation into a complaint laid in July regarding a strip search at the RCMP detachment in Port Hawkesbury, N.S., is still ongoing.  Patricia Bernard alleges that on May 26 she was strip searched three times by a female officer with male officers present.   http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100921/canada/canada_novascotia_ns_strip_search_rcmp   

 
EDMONTON (CBC) – A veteran Edmonton police sergeant was demoted a rank Tuesday after he was found guilty of discreditable conduct for drinking and driving and then lying to his superior about it. Randy Goss was demoted to constable at a disciplinary hearing Tuesday. The punishment will last for two years and amounts to a $30,000 loss in pay. But the fact is he was not charged with impaired driving here” The police association is looking at its options for appealing the sentence

How long does it take to look into a simple matter, as long as the police do hope everyone will forget about it.. 
 
You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors,  police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers, bad PERSONS   who STILL DO say that ALL OF  bad people, INCLUDING the ALCOHOLICS, the bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too.. Bad solicitor generals as well should be fired ASAP. NOW WHY IS IT BAD PEOPLE DO NOT CHANGE NEXT BESIDE THE FACT THE LIKE TO DO BAD THINGS, IT IS ALSO CAUSE THEY FALSELY  REFUSE TO ADMIT THE THINGS THEY DO ARE BAD.

My many experiences with this pretentious board is that it itself covers up too often for the bad cops..  The police are not the only ones who stall and wrongfully cover-up for their buddies..  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.

 Wed Apr 21, 7:42 PM  By The Canadian Press   OTTAWA – The House of Commons has overwhelmingly voted down a bid to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide. MPs of all party stripes voted 228-59 against a private member’s bill, sponsored by Bloc Quebecois MP Francine Lalonde. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100421/national/parl_euthanasia 

  
As  I have detailed to all of Canada’s major news media,  Members of the legislature as well I still never got this year adequate replay, actions about the much too many bad medical services, bad doctors and nurses, bad social workers  I had witnessed, rightfully complained about at the Montreal West Island General Hospital and this is still unacceptable.
  
The clear fact is that the Canadian federal government, federal Member parliament had voted unanimously this year  against allowing euthanasia, the Killing of anyone by even medical persons but who enforces it in Quebec. The clear fact is that the Canadian federal government, federal Member parliament had voted unanimously this year  against allowing euthanasia, the Killing of anyone by even medical persons and that now included as have also now complained in writing about my own witness of the unnecessary death of Mr. Ploufe  at the Montreal West Island Lakeshore Hospital . In my father’s case the medical personnel had not done all they could to save my father’s life the last 7 months before  his death and their unacceptable neglect of his medical conditions by too many medical staff caused some persons wrongfully to allow his early death.
  
While Automobile traffic accidents are the number one cause of death for Americans, Canadians  ages 3 to 33 ad while Automobile traffic accidents are the most common source of personal injury the real  Statistics still indicate that hospital deaths due to hospital acquired sickness, medical errors, medical negligence exceedingly surpass all of these numbers. And yet here not enough is being done about this and why is that?
  
 I have also now done my own undeniable witness, studies in Montreal Hospitals, old age homes for at least six months and detailed it and no one can deny it as to the actual cause of deaths.
YET I HAVE NOT HAD ONE PERSONS TELLING ME TO STOP MY EXPOSE OF THE BAD MEDICAL SYSTEM IN CANADA, SAYING IT WAS NOT TRUE, RATHER BOTH IN CANADA AND IN THE USA I HAVE BEEN ENCOURAGED TO SPEAK OUT AND COMMENDED FOR DOING SO NOW AS WELL. 
I HAVE SPENT 6 MONTHS IN HOSPITAL WATCHING FIRSTHAND TOO MANY PRETENTIOUS DOCTORS AND NURSES NEGLECTING PATIENTS, EVEN CAUSE THEY WERE BASICALLY INCOMPETENT TO HELP THEM. HAVING A MEDICAL LICENSE OR A MEDICAL DEGREE DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE MORALLY, TECHNICALLY QUALIFIED TO HELP THEM ESPECIALLY IF YOU CANNOT BOTHER TO HELP THEM. DOCTORS LOVE TO JUSTIFY THEIR KILLING OF PATIENTS AS A MEDICAL HELP, A MEDICAL NECESSITY OVER THE REALITY IT WAS  MEDICAL MAL PRACTICE CAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID OF MEDICAL SUITS RIGHTFULLY TOO.
A: And do you know how freaked out, upset new immigrants really now are when they are told that the government is studying allowing euthanasia? they fully and strongly oppose it cause they think they will be the one killed while the rich and powerful will get their medical help alone.  It is the same law that has been in the Bible the last thousands of years now too.. though slat not murder that you are trying to put a different name and justification for it too….
 
B: And do you know how freaked out, upset most Canadians find out that medical help is not available equally to all Canadians , but the doctors and nurse and the governments themselves do decide who they will help and will not help for this was not what they were led to believe medical aid was about for a stat. they believe everyone has full , equal access to it and now they find out it is not so.
They are all mostly upset as to how poorly managed it is and the fact the bad doctor and bad nurses generally  like the cops, bad civil and public servants, are not held accountable, not punished for their inadequacy, wrong doings.  Local Doctors and Hospital seem to to have an absolute minimal supervision, management, and certainly are not cost effective, and then you wonder why some stupid provincial government that is pouring money into pails full of holes complains the cost  of Medicare is going up significantly. They can blame their own lack of supervision , even doctors, nurses, hospitals, civil and public servants, politicians, police, governments, others all still need to be monitored, supervised in reality. A poorly managed Hospital and personnel is still always rightfully unacceptable even if it is McGill. I have often been wondering why the Montreal McGill Hospitals tend to provide the basic , or pretentious services, it is cause the real doctors, professionals, self serving, greedy,  money hungry doctors  now are trying to make a buck in the private sector and are generally not available to all, even though Canada supposedly only has a fully public accessible Medicare system, and the Hospital directors who generally are doctors too go along with this too.. conflicting self interest and we pay for the majority of their education costs so they can screw us, abuse us next still too? Many persons who are fed up with the APPARENT INADEQUACIES even in the socialized medicine would like us to believe that a private medical system is better… and that is mere wishful thinking.. for even in a private system there are too often the same inadequacies, even for the same reasons, the apparent lack of supervision of medical personnel and services,
Often again I saw patients who come in alone they tend to be neglected, NOT GIVEN PAIN KILLERS ON TIME, SOILED DIAPERS NOT CHANGED  … not taken to washrooms, not given adequate medical care even in the emergency department now too. 
 So does the Quebec and federal health Ministers still want me to write all this up to the Hospital ombudsman, etc.,  while they still  gets paid for doing nothing here too? The governments have basically passed down the responsibility of the management of the health care systems to the individual hospitals, who basically have no  interest in seeing, managing medical  costs reductions, or improving their medical performances, rather it is to their sole interest that the gravy train flows abundantly, after all more patients, means more money for Hospital administrators, ombudsmen doctors and nurses and more job guarantees for them too.
One of the too many false reasons too many patients die in Hospitals is that almost none of the medical staff feel any personal, real, negative repercussions themselves.  One of the best way that I have discovered to get to know what a  person is really like, is work with him  just for one whole day,.. and   what   you now saw next.. lying, bullying, control freak..
MORE Realities:
-Doctors and nurse falsely  are not generally fully, ADEQUATELY MANAGED  supervised, or held accountable for their wrong doings in Canada
-SPEEDING IS NOT THE MAIN CAUSE OF CAR ACCIDENTS, DRUNK AND IMPAIRED  DRIVERS STILL ARE.
-SPEEDING IS NOT THE ROOT, MAIN ISSUE OF PREVENTABLE DEATHS IN CANADA, RATHER PEOPLE DYING IN HOSPITALS DUE TO MEDICAL ERRORS, CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE BY DOCTORS AND NURSE, AND HOSPITAL ACQUIRED SICKNESS IS
MORE TAXPAYERS MONEY ARE USED ON REVENUE GENERATING SPEEDING TICKETS RATHER instead of putting bad doctors and bad nurse in jail and this also is really unacceptable ..
 
 Quebec’s totally still unacceptable Medicare services, Pretentious, inadequate Ombudsman was, is never acceptable.  Punish rightfully all of the guilty persons now here too and do not rather cover up for them. DO SEE ALSO..

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.  
 
One rotten apple spoils the whole basket.. let us all deal with it..  Now let also again it be clear I have written many many times my complaints to the Ombudsmen, ministers and I have yet to get one decent review on these matters this year.. and I still do want to know what rightfully and specially was done about each one of all of these past rightful complaints. Let them all doctors, nurse, managers, administers, ombudsmen do the adequate work there are all now being paid to do as well or be immediately and rightfully fired.

Much too many still immoral, incompetent, no good even Quebec medical doctors still wrongfully now want a legal right to bury their sins, errors, murders and face no lawsuits, negative consequences! The Public, citizens are being duped about the real issues involved here. We all can ALSO readily know that  know that too many of our politicians too often do  lie and spin the truths and now so do the  Doctors and their representatives with their hidden agendas as well.  Doctors now say they want to help others.. but do dream on for still they always are firstly   helping themselves in reality!!!! Their Suicide bill  bill would give doctors a license to kill.
 
Now I have been spending a lot of time in hospitals lately and I have seen 6 elderly persons die in the last month, 6 more than I have seen in my whole life time.. and some of these persons too sadly  were falsely being allowed to starve to death in Canadian Hospitals too. Drugs kill so do lazy, no good doctors and nurses , they even wrongfully starve patients to death. 
A  CONVALESCENT HOME EMPLOYEE HAS NOW DIRECTLY TOLD ME THAT IF A PATIENT NO LONGER WANTS TO EAT OR LIVE, SHE IS TO ALLOW HIM TO STARVE TO DEATH, SHE IS NOT ALLOWED TO TRY TO FEED HIM.. FOR THIS  IS A DIRECT QUEBEC GOVERNMENT POLICY, IF SHE TRIES TO FEED THE PATIENT SHE WILL BE FIRED FROM HER JOB.

Suspended BC RCMP officers being paid up to $1.3 million a year The Province – There are now 16 BC RCMP members on paid suspension for alleged misconduct in BC. Officers can remain suspended with pay for years – even receiving annual raises …  “It’s a reward for engaging in inappropriate conduct,” said Simon Fraser University criminologist Robert Gordon. “This just shows a fundamental lack of accountability to taxpayers,” said Maureen Bader, spokeswoman for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.  Across Canada, 47 Mounties were on paid suspension as of March 31, the Ottawa Citizen’s Chris Cobb reports.
VANCOUVER – Rookie RCMP Const. Chris Christinger has been docked 10 days’ pay after a day of partying at the Bella Coola Rodeo that included drinking before his shift, sneaking an 18-year-old girl into a beer garden and driving a police truck while under the influence of alcohol. Christinger, an officer in Alexis Creek, was sent to Bella Coola to help police the community’s annual rodeo.Christinger arrived in Bella Coola several hours before his 4:30 p.m. shift began.So he went to the rodeo grounds, where he drank four bottles of Smirnoff Ice before heading back to his hotel, getting changed into his RCMP uniform and driving to the Bella Coola detachment. RCMP spokeswoman Const. Annie Linteau noted that, under the RCMP Act, 10 days’ lost pay is the maximum financial penalty an officer can receive short of being fired http://www.vancouversun.com/life/RCMP+officer+caught+sneaking+teen+girl+into+beer+garden+photos+posted/3516840/story.html
IN THIS CASE THE OFFICER SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIRED..
RCMP needs to ASAP to revamp its disciplinary system, which currently prescribes no punishment between a two-week suspension and dismissal.
Our Civil and Public servants in Canada too often falsely continue to get the breaks.. why…
