G20 police misconduct probe partially reopened

 .

The Toronto G20 Summit of June 26-27, 2010, hosted by Stephen Harper, was an incredibly expensive undertaking that resulted in massive human rights violations against members of the public at the hands of the police. Despite this, politicians refuse to call a full public inquiry and hold police—as well as themselves—to account … something to think about,,, Thanks to all the overtime they got from the G20, the number of Toronto police officers earning six figures in 2010 increased by 60% in comparison to 2009. In total, 2,159 police personnel earned $100,000 or more in 2010, including the infamous ‘Officer Bubbles’, who threatened to arrest a peaceful protester for blowing bubbles, and then sued YouTube commenters who ridiculed his actions. He took home $108,197.45.

Premier Dalton McGuinty wrongfully Unapologetic For Civil Rights Violations.

In a very recent Poll 60 percent of the persons now thought that the Top Toronto cop, the  police chief of Toronto should resign. I agree , he has showed himself as an incompetent police manager. There are too many more even like him in all of Canada now too.

Top Toronto cop refuses to resign as G20 criticism grows Toronto G20 biggest was the ‘compromise of civil liberties’ in Canadian history:  they now both should resign or should make quick work  at making all of brutalizing police officers to account for their despicable conduct during the G20 Summit protests.

Police? Perhaps you aren’t aware of our charter right to assemble and protest? Canada’s police forces are known too often to be pretentious, abusive, and incompetently managed. The rising police state and Constitutional dictatorship in Canada includes:

Police not autonomous from the government; heightened armed police presence; rising police abuses; video surveillance and community cameras; control of mainstream media; criminalization of society; arbitrary search and seizure; civilian complaint mechanism against the police deliberately undermined by the state; antiterrorism measures that violate basic human rights; radio frequency identification; surveillance legislation; clandestine internet, cell phone, telephone and mail monitoring; data bases of personal information; firearm confiscation and prohibition; martial law; mass arrests; arbitrary ‘preventative’ detention; carrying and providing identification ‘papers’ when challenged by police or deputized private security agents; degrading distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive; enacting ‘secret’ laws behind closed doors; restrictions on civil mobility; and encroachments on the democratic freedom to express or communicate political or other views.

 

The so-called secret G20 law slammed next now  by Ontario’s watchdog as being deliberately shrouded in confusion was simply dishonest, immoral, abusive. Premier Dalton McGuinty himself next had said the Ontario government acted with too much haste when it passed the law giving police more powersThe provincial opposition parties next had blasted McGuinty for passing the G20 law in secret. The 1939 Public Works Protection Act was originally passed to protect court houses and public buildings after Canada declared war on Germany. Updating it to give police extra powers during the G20 was probably a mistake, McGuinty admitted. The revamped Ontario’s provincial Liberal regulation led people to wrongly believe police had the power to demand identification and detain anyone coming within five metres of the G20 security fence. That precipitated a mass violation of civil rights, in the opinion of Ontario’s ombudsman. More than 1,000 people were arrested during the summit. Of that group about 300 were charged and, five months later, few are still facing those charges.  The ombudsman rightfully had blasted the Liberal government for giving police wartime powers and for making a “premeditated, conscious decision” to keep the extra powers secret from the public. The bad RCMP were also aware that the Toronto police were going to use the act.   Federal Public Safety Minister Vic Toews next had said  that he knew nothing about the Ontario government’s decision to give police in Toronto sweeping powers during the summit. But what good did he do about it?

Make it right, Chief Blair.  The officer captured beating Adam Nobody on video is shown at centre taking down photographer Colin O’Connor June 26 at Queen’s Park. In the hands of so accomplished a career professional as Police Chief Bill Blair — former morality cop, former drug cop, former organized crime cop, former major criminal investigations cop and former head of detective operations — this evidence should cue up a slam-dunk piece of detecting. That was an abuse of power and you, chief — not a bunch of anonymous cops with badge numbers removed — orchestrated it. http://www.thestar.com/news/crime/article/903363 
 

 

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.

 

How a man named Nobody became the battered face of G20 protests  Globe and Mail – Adam Nobody was face down, his arms held behind his back, and a police officer’s fist smashing into his face, a now infamous video shows. He had left his house to see what the G20 protests were about. Now he was under arrest. … John Bridge, who shot the video of Mr. Nobody’s arrest swore an affidavit that   Mr. Nobody did not attack any of the police officers, and was not armed. One of the key questions is who arrested Mr. Nobody. The officer listed on the arrest record provided a badge number that doesn’t correspond to anyone on the Toronto force, according to the SIU, or to any officer believed to have worked in G20 policing. At his court appearance last month, the Crown conceded that there was no evidence to support the assault charge. The Crown lawyer said the officers’ notes did not indicate an assault had taken place. The Crown also said Mr. Nobody’s “assaultive behaviour” did not amount to reasonable and probable grounds for arrest. “The Chief of the largest police service in the country has made an allegation of fabricating evidence against Mr. Nobody and Mr. Bridge in circumstances where, apparently, according to the arrest document, the police have falsified a badge number,” Mr. Falconer said. “The police refuse to come forward to acknowledge who beat Mr. Nobody. This is the stuff of totalitarian regimes.”

Now why are any of  the clearly foolish Canadian  justice ministers, cops, now 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 realy are world wide even.. they are bad people who abuse citizens and obstruct justice and do need to be put into prison themselves.
 
 
Ontario’s police lapdog is reopening an investigation into alleged police misconduct in the case of a man who suffered a broken nose while being arrested at a G20 protest in Toronto. The Nobody arrest has also dogged Blair, with a video posted on YouTube chronicling the takedown of the 27-year-old man outside the provincial legislature — far from the summit site — and recently published photos showing the faces and name tags of officers involved in the incident. The Special Investigations Unit reopened its probe after Blair made comments, which he later apologized for, that video had been “tampered with” since about five seconds of audio and video were missing. “We’ve identified five of the officers (involved in the Nobody incident) and I’m very confident by the end of the day we will have identified all of them,” Blair said Wednesday. Notice this under public pressure the Police Chief now can identify the bad police officiers, but not before..

 


If four officers can kill a man at an international airport and avoid prosecution, why do you think the police will punished when they commit lesser crimes? If they can get away with murder, why would they not get away with anything else?If an off-duty officer can commit a hit and run, killing a teenage motorcyclist, and then go home and ‘have a few shots to calm his nerves,’ only to revisit the accident scene drunk, and not be held accountable, then do you think that when a cop smashes your face in because you are advocating for democracy at a protest rally, that he will be charged? If you break the law, the police will arrest you, interrogate you, and charge you if they feel that a successful conviction will be obtained. Then Crown will then use tax dollars to make sure that you are convicted of a crime. When police commit crimes, they are never treated the same way. They are given every possible chance to avoid prosecution. Why is this so?.. all that is required to become a police officer is a high school diploma. To defend capitalism with a stick, you can’t have an enforcer who understands the system and questions his role in it, rather, you need a meat-head who lusts for petty power. Bring in civilian oversight and education standards.

The Special Investigations Unit said in a Tuesday release it will take a fresh look at the case of Adam Nobody, 27, whose nose and cheekbone were broken during a June 26 protest at Queen’s Park.

In the case of Adam Nobody it is crystal clear that his serious injuries came at the hands of police officers (even it it is not possible to identify them). I

The SIU’s initial investigation determined that excessive force was “probably” used, but it couldn’t determine which specific officer was responsible for causing the injuries.

In arriving at that conclusion, the SIU interviewed a civilian witness and eight officer witnesses, as well as reviewing a video of the arrest that was posted on YouTube.

The video shows about a half-dozen police officers chasing and then tackling Nobody at Queen’s Park. SIU director Ian Scott said the video appeared to show one of the officers striking Nobody repeatedly while he was on the ground.

Blair claims that the video was “doctored” “fabricated” “false” “tampered”

Blair claimed that a “forensic analysis” was performed on the tape. We know that this is not possible since there was no “tape” it was a digital file.

Blair also states that the police were engaged with an “ARMED person” (Mr. Nobody). If this is the case where is the weapon Mr. Blair?

Blair is making strong accusations against private citizens for which there is no basis. If Blair cannot back up these scurrilous allegations he should be fired.

If Blair cannot back up his claims he himself should be charged with obstruction of justice and criminal breach of trust. A Chief of Police cannot just make up stuff and get away with it.

We cannot have any faith in our Police service as long as Blair is the Chief.

there were many peacful protesters that felt like they were victims of excessive use force and Police Brutality.

And…nothing will happen. The police deny everything, close ranks, demonize the accusers, and get away with crimes no one else could. They’re nothing but lowlife thugs who found a job.

Please tell me where in the law the police are allowed to fracture a man’s skull in the process of arresting him for a non-violent offence?

Given the condition these people were housed in after arrest, the police brutality… I don’t care if the people accused are guilty or innocent, their treatment is unacceptable in either case.

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.

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/
