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

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. 

.

Aboriginal inmates in Canada make up too high a percentage of Canada’s prison population and tend to get harsher sentences and less programming, a report from the country’s prison watchdog

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.

So who realy protects the Canadian citizens from the too often bad cops, bad RCMP

Not only is there rarely any justice when it comes to holding the much too many  bad cops to accountiablity but if there is any it takes years to do so.. and then not much good  tends to happen

.

Vancouver police are caught in an embarrassing situation in which they’re accused of beating up a man who they thought was a bank robber. Not only was he not the right guy — it turned out no bank had been robbed. Manjit Singh says he had just taken his garbage out the curb of his home near Joyce Street and Kingsway when a police approached him. “He pushed me on the fence,” said Singh, 51. “He said, ‘RCMP, RCMP.’” Other officers then swarmed him and started beating him up, Singh said. “One guy put the knee on my neck, one guy put the knee on my legs,” “They start kicking me … powerful kicks. Left, right, left, right.” 

The case appears to be similar to an incident in 2010 when South Vancouver resident Yao Wei Wu was pulled out of his home and roughed up by two plainclothes officers who mistook him for another man who had allegedly assaulted his wife.

“I need justice now,” said Singh, who suffered cuts, bruises and apparent trauma. “Why they attack on one innocent guy?

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

BC civilian to be in charge of investigating when police are accused Winnipeg Free Press – ‎VICTORIA – The BC government has introduced legislation to appoint a civilian to oversee investigations when police officers are accused of wrongdoing.

 
“B.C.’s office will investigate a broader range of police-involved incidents than Ontario’s model and be more independent than Alberta’s, reporting to the attorney general rather than the minister responsible for policing,” Solicitor General Shirley Bond told the legislature in introducing the bill.

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/

About time the RCMP reaps what is sowed

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

Alberta should not renew RCMP contract

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

News reports made it clear that RCMP investigations into embarrassing and fatal actions of their own members were inadequate to the point of being a coverup. At the field level there were many reports of highly dubious shootings by RCMP members, and criminal investigations into the conduct of members when off duty. Former RCMP Commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli resigned in disgrace after giving conflicting statements to a Parliamentary committee. ” http://www.calgaryherald.com/opinion/Alberta+should+renew+RCMP+contract/3498184/story.html?cid=megadrop_story 

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

VANCOUVER – A public inquiry into Robert Dziekanski’s death revealed new evidence and the investigation into the actions of the four RCMP officers involved should be reopened, says a special prosecutor appointed following a damning report from the inquiry. The province named Richard Peck as special prosecutor after the report released earlier this month concluded the four officers used too much force when they stunned Dziekanski with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport, and then misled investigators looking into his death. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100629/national/taser_inquiry
 

.

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

THE RCMP ARE GUILTY!

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

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

.

The RCMP’s personnel and their management cover up, immoral conduct following the death plus the Criminal Justice Branch’s decision a year later that no charges were warranted against the Mounties involved were also  an unacceptable subsequent “unprofessional” conducts, acts  that compounded the rightful revulsion on the part of the citizens towards the whole affair, justice system, RCMP too. See also  http://www.timescolonist.com/technology/Dziekanski+case+thought/3176142/story.html 

.

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

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

New evidence enough to reopen Dziekanski case CTV.ca

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

Our falsely claiming to be now open, accountable honest, decent,  law and order supposedly rather clearly lying  Conservative Stephen Harper Canadian government has been clearly sleeping with these bad cops, defending them.. and likley will not do much good in reality about them too. Last Monday, the government introduced a bill to boost the independent civilian review and public complaints scheme that governs the Mounties without waiting, as it promised, for the Air India inquiry. The bill doesn’t go nearly as far to empower an independent RCMP watchdog as is needed. It’s riddled with loopholes that still protect “privileged” information, including anything to do with “national security.” “This is crazy,  Where’s the transparency there?” Prime Minister Stephen Harper   expects to “push-back” to many of the changes proposed to deal positively with the RCMP http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/article/825888–mounties-battered-by-more-bad-reviews.

Attorney General Mike de Jong said the matter should be reviewed following an inquiry report released Friday that concluded the officers were not justified in using their Taser, and their explanations of the events that unfolded the night Dziekanski died were “patently unbelievable.” Contrary to their testimony at the inquiry, commissioner Thomas Braidwood said the officers could not have reasonably perceived Dziekanski was a threat when he picked up a stapler during the confrontation at Vancouver’s airport in October 2007. The report by the former B.C. judge is riddled with terms like “untrue,” misleading,” “misrepresented,” and “overstated,” to describe the testimony of the four RCMP officers involved. De Jong said it is essential that a special prosecutor will be appointed immediately, given the information in the report. “The special prosecutor will assess whether there is any additional evidence or grounds upon which to reconsider the earlier decision around criminal prosecution,” de Jong said. RCMP commissioner William Elliot acknowledged that the force failed at many levels in this case, and said investigations of incidents involving RCMP officers will be turned over to B.C.’s civilian oversight body. “It is clear that our policies and training in place at the time were deficient,” Elliot said  “We acknowledge that the actions of our members who dealt with Mr. Dziekanski also fell short, including the fact that our officers did not take enough time to try and de-escalate the situation and did not provide an appropriate level of care to Mr. Dziekanski.” Dziekanski, who didn’t speak English, arrived in Vancouver after a long flight from Poland and spent 10 hours in the airport before he eventually cleared customs. Unable to find his mother or communicate with anyone, Dziekanski began throwing furniture in the airport’s international terminal. Several onlookers called 911 and one witness started filming the scene on his video camera. The four RCMP officers were told by a 911 operator to expect a drunk suspect. Within seconds of their arrival, one of them fired the Taser, pulling the trigger five times in total, mostly after Dziekanski had fallen to the ground. Dziekanski’s mother filed a wrongful death lawsuit last year against the RCMP and others, but settled the case this past April after receiving a public apology from the force and an undisclosed financial settlement.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100618/national/taser_inquiry

Canada’s too often bad Justice Ministers

 

Tell the too often rather lying spin doctors, Conservatives, Liberals, all of  the Justice ministers and special prosecutors that they do  need to avoid all appearance of evil, not just evil itself still.

Over and over again and one too many of Canada’s Justice ministers have been forced to resign from their offices, likley cause they were really bad cops and bad  lawyers now too..

NB justice minister resigns over privacy issue CBC.ca  Justice Minsiter Bernard LeBlanc resigned Thursday after being accused of violating the privacy rights of a Fredericton-area woman. There have in the last few months been too many other NB cabinet Minister’s resignations now as well.. LeBlanc is the fourth minister to step down in the last seven months.  Former justice minister Michael Murphy and former environment minister T.J. Burke have also left the Liberal cabinet. 

 It is sad that too many lawyers hoping to become judges next do now  make political contributions to the party in power too… and it seems to work?

 Election financing allegations force B.C.’s top cop to quit cabinet The Canadian Press –  VANCOUVER, B.C. – British Columbia’s top cop has found himself on the other side of the criminal justice system, facing an RCMP investigation that has forced him to resign from his post as solicitor general. Kash Heed, a former police chief and star Liberal candidate in the May 2009 vote, announced his resignation Friday, citing allegations that his campaign office violated advertising and finance rules in the Elections Act. RCMP confirmed a commercial crimes unit investigation and the criminal justice branch announced a special prosecutor has been appointed to oversee the case. Heed said he has no idea what allegations prompted investigation, but he was adamant that, whatever they are, he had nothing to do with it.”I am absolutely confident that I’ve done nothing wrong, that’s why I’m going to fully co-operate with the RCMP and it is that reason that I’m stepping aside to maintain the integrity of this office and to maintain my integrity,” he said at a hastily called news conference at his constituency office in Vancouver on Friday afternoon.”I have no idea what this is about, but I can tell you again, I have done nothing wrong.” Neither Heed nor the RCMP are revealing many details.Heed said he first learned about the probe at the end of March, from RCMP. But he said they originally told him he was not being investigated.That changed earlier this week when he said he was told the RCMP were now looking into whether he had any role in the allegations, and on Wednesday he learned a special prosecutor had been appointed to the case.In fact, Terrence L. Robertson was appointed special prosecutor in January, and the RCMP started their investigation within weeks of last May’s election, which returned the Liberals to power for a third term.Insp. Tim Shields said the investigation was prompted by a complaint to the province’s chief electoral officer, who forwarded the allegation to RCMP last June.Shields said a report to Crown counsel will be complete by June, noting a one-year statue of limitations on Election Act violations.”The allegations are concerning the campaign office of Minister Kash Heed, and although there’s more than one person who can potentially be involved, we’re not going to be naming names,” Shields told reporters.”It’s a very sensitive investigation, and the priority of police is to get to the truth and discover the facts.”Shields said several people from Heed’s campaign office are under investigation, but declined to elaborate.

Heed is the third Liberal solicitor general forced to resign amid allegations of wrongdoing in the past two years.

John Les resigned from the post in March 2008 after it was revealed he was part of an RCMP investigation that alleged he improperly benefited from land deals while he was serving as mayor of Chilliwack.

And John van Dongen resigned as solicitor general in April 2009 after it was revealed he lost his driver’s licence for numerous speeding tickets. He was serving as Superintendent of Motor Vehicles at the time.

Attorney General Mike de Jong will fill the position for now, although Heed said he plans to return to his cabinet post once his name is cleared. He will continue to represent his riding in the meantime.

Heed’s profile rose while he was an RCMP district commander with a view to reducing property crime in south Vancouver. He spearheaded the creation of the gang violence task force, and is credited with reducing gang-related violence by more than 40 per cent, according to his website. He became chief of the West Vancouver Police in 2007.But since announcing his entry into political life last year, Heed has been dogged by a defamation suit filed by a former West Vancouver officer.Heed has spent his time in cabinet championing increased accountability for the RCMP, demanding the force change the way it investigate itself or risk losing its contract for provincial policing in B.C.Jane Thornthwaite acknowledged in February she made a mistake after she was stopped by police for drunk driving.

Heed is B.C.’s third top cop to step aside Vancouver Sun -As he announced his resignation Friday, Kash Heed became the third consecutive solicitor-general in almost two years to step aside amid controversy.

BC premier says Heed right to quit CBC.ca

TheChronicleHerald.ca – Canada.com – National Post – News1130 – Wikipedia: Kash Heed

 Mon May 3, 8:29 PM  By The Canadian Press VANCOUVER – Former solicitor general Kash Heed took a giant step towards returning to the B.C. cabinet Monday after being cleared of wrongdoing in an investigation that resulted in numerous Criminal Code charges and Election Act violations against three of his former campaign workers. Heed, insisting he did nothing wrong, hinted broadly he would like to get back to his cabinet duties. He resigned last month after announcing he was part of an RCMP investigation involving irregularities dating back to the May 2009 B.C. election. Heed, a former West Vancouver police chief and a first-time candidate who was personally recruited by Premier Gordon Campbell, won the Vancouver-Fraserview riding and was appointed to cabinet heading the law-and-order posts of Public Safety and Solicitor General. “It’s up to the premier to decide what he wants to do,” said Heed. “I’m serving the people of the province of British Columbia.” The charges are related to election pamphlets distributed during the provincial election last spring, as well as an election financing report filed on Heed’s behalf. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100503/national/solicitor_general_resigns_charges

Tue May 4, 8:38 PM  VANCOUVER (CBC) – The special prosecutor who cleared newly reinstated solicitor general Kash Heed of wrongdoing has resigned. Terrence Robertson quit the job on Tuesday, saying his law firm, Harper Grey LLP, donated $1,000 to Heed’s political campaign. The news came just hours after B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell announced Heed had been reinstated as solicitor general. On Monday, it was announced that Robertson’s investigation into Heed’s 2009 election campaign cleared Heed of any wrongdoing. Heed had stepped down from office in April when it was revealed the RCMP was conducting an investigation into his campaign in the Vancouver-Fraserview riding. The investigation was related to an unregistered election campaign brochure, which accused the NDP of planning to legalize heroin and cocaine and said the party would consider instituting an inheritance tax. Two of Heed’s campaign workers were charged with a variety of offences, but it was determined Heed had no prior knowledge of the pamphlets. In a letter outlining the reasons for his resignation, Robertson said he was aware of the contribution before taking on the investigation, but said he “did not believe that it was a conflict of interest” that would preclude him from acting as special prosecutor. Robertson said that upon further reflection, he has concluded that continuing as special prosecutor would provoke “comment from the public and the media” as to whether he is sufficiently independent.  … Speaking at a news conference Tuesday evening, the newly reinstated Heed indicated he would retain his post as solicitor general. Heed said he has done nothing wrong. “It was reviewed by an independent special prosecutor. The findings exonerated me and I’m living by that right now and we are ready to move forward.” Heed said he has never met Robertson or had any dealings with his law firm.  Attorney General Mike de Jong told reporters he was disappointed by Robertson’s resignation. “It’s frustrating, you know? I’m angry,” he said. “We have an independent process that everyone relies upon the public relies on it, the government relies upon it, and then something like this happens.” De Jong said a new prosecutor would be appointed in the case. Meanwhile, New Democrat MLA Mike Farnworth said he was shocked when he heard the news. “I was speechless, I was stunned and at first I thought, ‘This is a joke.'”Farnworth said both Heed’s exoneration and the criminal charges laid against his campaign workers are “tainted.” “As far as I’m concerned, the premier has no choice but to reverse his decision and Mr. Heed must be out of cabinet immediately … [Heed] has no credibility staying on as solicitor general,” he said. “The fact of the matter is that the special prosecutor who exonerated him is a donor to the B.C. Liberal Party and the idea that that was not disclosed at the beginning or that somehow that could not be seen as a conflict I find unbelievable.” Farnworth is calling for a complete review of the investigation. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100504/canada/canada_britishcolumbia_bc_heed_special_prosecutor_resigns

New special prosecutor to review Heed case Globe and Mail

 
 

and the mad BC Liberal, justice circus of improprieties goes on and one.. Anyone who is honest doubts the finding when he finds out this overall was not a   independent review basically, but a Liberal one.. Can  we really thus trust this government to top produce any  kind of decent justice?

So here is the obvious.. we need now 2 independent investigators to investigate the original independent investigator now as well  and to find out how long did he know that his firm supported the Liberals and that they had donated the money to the Liberals as well? before he was appointed too? Is anyone there honest, not crooked now too?
 
B.C. solicitor general steps down… again The Canadian Press – Thu May 6, 12:45 AM   VICTORIA – The circus is back in town in British Columbia with the star attraction being former solicitor general Kash Heed performing a manoeuvre of high difficulty, the triple political flip flop. In less than a month, the former West Vancouver police chief and star Liberal recruit resigned his cabinet post, was briefly reinstated, only to quit again the next day. Heed, on the backbenches Wednesday after less than a day back in cabinet, said he felt jubilation when Premier Gordon Campbell reinstated him after a police investigation cleared him of any wrongdoing in the scandal that resulted in charges against three of his campaign officials. But the triumph sank to desperation after the man that cleared him, independent special prosecutor Terrence Robertson, quit the case after acknowledging he himself may have the appearance of a conflict of interest because his law firm donated $1,000 to Heed’s campaign. 
 
VANCOUVER – They’re supposed to be the buffer between government and any appearance of conflict of interest. But when the special prosecutor who cleared British Columbia’s solicitor general of election wrongdoing stepped down this week, he did just the opposite. Terrance Robertson resigned and revealed that his law firm had donated to Heed’s campaign. Yet the names of at least 15 of the 35 lawyers on the list of potential special prosecutors or their firms are also on Liberal party donation lists. This includes lawyers involved in some of the province’s most high-profile cases, including the legislature raid case and a lawyer who has been appointed to argue against Canada’s polygamy laws.  The revelations give at least the appearance of conflict of interest and fuel distrust among the public, legal observers say. Stephen Owen, a former provincial ombudsman and former deputy attorney general who was involved in setting up B.C.’s special prosecutor system in the early 1990s, said the controversy highlights the need for more vigilant vetting.  In the Heed case, Owen said the province should appoint a new special prosecutor to start the process from the beginning, rather than simply picking up where Robertson left off.  “They need to appoint another special prosecutor . . . to redo the whole investigation to see if charges should be laid, including against Mr. Heed,” said Owen, who now works for the University of British Columbia. “The public should have full confidence that there are no such conflicts. And it’s only fair to Mr. Heed, because there will be a cloud over the fact that he wasn’t charged.” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100506/national/special_prosecutors_conflict

Old news RCMP still boozing and driving too..

 

Alcohol is 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
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..

 

Kamloops Mountie faces impaired charges CBC – Tue Apr 6, 10:27 PM A nine-year veteran RCMP officer faces impaired driving charges after a car flipped over in a crash near Kamloops early Saturday morning. “It appeared, from the preliminary investigation of the incident, that the lone occupant of the vehicle had driven off the road and hit protection poles surrounding a hydro box,” Const. Cheryl Bush said in a release Tuesday. “The vehicle then flipped onto its roof. The driver sustained no injuries as a result of this incident.” Investigators at the scene asked the officer, 29, for a breath sample and later said they would recommend charges to the Crown, police said. The identity of the officer, currently posted in Kamloops, has not been made public. The officer has been reassigned to administrative duties and will make his first court appearance on April 26 in Kamloops, Bush said

Obviously, except for the politicians of Canada, there needs to be a better screening device for those accepted into the RCMP.  Oh boy…here we go again. And how will they wash this one away?  MADD never seems to have anything to say when a cop is charged with DUI.  I wonder why?  What great role models the various members are presenting to the youth of this Country. We spend millions trying to educate people to not drink and drive and the people who enforce the law, are breaking that very law.  Looks like drinking isn’t just a RCMP problem it is spread into every police force around the world. The problem definitely needs to be researched.  I am starting to feel like the RCMP is almost as bad as the scum they are hired to protect us from http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2010/04/06/bc-kamloops-rcmp-impaired.html
Politicians, RCMP’s new image as being too often liars, drunk seems to be consistent.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2008/11/11/no-rcmp-alcoholics-it-seems/
 
Top Mounties failing in leadership role, watchdog says Globe and Mail –   RCMP brass are failing to live up to the legendary can-do spirit of the Mounties and are undermining the efforts of provincial divisions that are striving to modernize the force, watchdog Paul Kennedy said Wednesday.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/08/13/but-we-knew-all-that-already-about-the-rcmp/

Why do the police not prosecute the drunk drivers all year more consistently now too? “Of the 645 sexual assaults that were reported to our service in 2009, more than 40 per cent were alcohol-facilitated sexual assaults,” A sexual assault is never the fault of the victim. She said no means no the first time, and another drink can’t change that.“ We need people to understand that consent cannot be given if the person is impaired by alcohol: If they’re passed out, if they’re unconscious, if they’re sleeping,”  Supt. Danielle Campbell,   head of the Edmonton Police Criminal Investigations Division. It seems most alcohol-facilitated sexual assault doesn’t seem to be about miscommunication, or misconceptions of consent.  Rather, it is about men who use alcohol to incapacitate women for the purpose of raping them, and who do it over and over again like they know what they ‘re doing and are doing it on purpose. Do even the police do the same thing as well?

 

April 1, 2010

and it was long overdue… now the lingering resentment

RCMP money settlement with Dziekanski’s mother will remain mystery   The Canadian Press –  RICHMOND, B.C. – An apology from the RCMP, a financial settlement and a geography scholarship in her dead son’s name will allow Robert Dziekanski’s mother finally to sleep at night, she says.

And all  this does not  in any way compensates for what happened in the RCMP Dziekanski affair. Serious loss of public confidence into the RCMP has occurred too for they’ve dragged the Dziekanski family and indeed all of Canada  through 2½ years of investigation and inquiry before they finally fess up, and what about millions of tax payers money spent on court costs here already, the Braidwood Inquiry, which looked into the officers’ conduct, and the cost of the  lawyers’ fees for all parties involved is enormous, and what about all those bad RCMP guys and also  why are they not in jail still? The bad RCMP officers repeatedly used a Taser to subdue 40-year-old Dziekanski and then pinned him down for several minutes just before he died next tried to cover it all up by their false reports, denials too. The  months-long judicial inquiry headed by Justice Robert Braidwood focusing  on the RCMP excessive use of force in dealing with Dziekanski. Braidwood’s findings have not yet been made public.

RCMP tarnished by Dziekanski case: It’s going to take more than money and an apology to redeem the RCMP’s image following the Robert Dziekanski case. Most people, news media, politicians, ministers too  still only like to support winners, not exposed exemplary losers. and in Canada they all tend to quickly bury the wounded losers EARLY still too in reality.

CANADIAN MOTHER’S RIGHTFUL SEARCH FOR JUSTICE

 

Canada and British Columbia  clearly, perversely has a two tied justice system, one that allows ordinary citizens to be abused, another for the civil and public servants, influential   persons, a legacy from the British influence.. smart RCMP officers seem always to get away with injustice as a result too

 

The Canadian Press  VANCOUVER, B.C. – Vancouver International Airport, where Robert Dziekanski spent the last 10 hours of his life lost, confused and unable to communicate with anyone before his fatal confrontation with RCMP, has denied any responsibility for his death in its defence of a lawsuit filed by the Polish immigrant’s mother.Dziekanski died on the floor of the airport’s international arrivals area in the early morning of Oct. 14, 2007, after four RCMP officers stunned him with a Taser.His mother is now suing the officers, the airport and the federal and provincial governments. Zofia Cisowski alleges the airport and its staff failed her son at every encounter they had with the man after he arrived from Poland and then tried, unsuccessfully, to find his waiting mother.He was in the airport for nearly 10 hours before police were called, including several hours that he spent unnoticed in a secure customs hall, possibly sleeping. In particular, Cisowski’s lawsuit says airport staff didn’t do enough to help Dziekanski when he became agitated and started throwing furniture, prompting calls to police. She claims airport officials didn’t provide sufficient access to a translator and wrongly decided not to call the facility’s own firefighters after Dziekanski was stunned and lying unconscious on the airport floor. The lawsuit also says staff failed to provide Cisowski with any “meaningful assistance” when she repeatedly tried to find out where her son was during hours of waiting. The airport denies every allegation. Airport staff “followed their training, used good judgment and employed the resources available to them at the time to do their best to assist the plaintiff (Cisowski), Mr. Dziekanski and all members of the public in attendance at the airport,” says the statement of defence, filed on Nov. 20.”If the plaintiff sustained any injury or harm, such harm was not foreseeable by the airport or its representatives.” CisowsKi’s lawyer declined to comment, saying he was waiting for statements of defence from the others named in the lawsuit. The airport is the only defendant so far to file such a statement. The airport’s lawyer, Dwight Stewart, said the airport has extensively reviewed what happened and made changes, but he insisted the airport’s policies and procedures were sufficient at the time. “This was a situation that no one at the airport had ever encountered before,” Stewart said in an interview.  “And while it’s unlikely that this would ever again happen at the airport, the airport looked at every one of those systems and did everything it could to ensure that . . . every passenger – no matter the time of day, no matter their experience with international air travel, no matter their language capacity – had a smooth passage through Vancouver International Airport.” Stewart said he ISn’t legally discuss whether there has been any talk of a settlement, but he said the airport is sticking firm in its position that it did nothing wrong.

 The airport faced intense criticism after Dziekanski’s death and made numerous changes in the aftermath, including improved access to translation services, more signs in different languages and increased patrols to find passengers who are lost or in distress. An internal report produced in the months after Dziekanski’s fatal confrontation with police concluded airport staff followed their training and did nothing wrong, but made more than two dozen recommendations that have been put into place . .At a public inquiry that wrapped up in October, the airport repeatedly pointed to those changes as proof it had learned from the incident, while at the same time denying there was anything wrong in the first place. Inquiry commissioner Thomas Braidwood’s final report is expected to be released next year, and it will contain recommendations to prevent similar deaths.The inquiry also focused on the actions of federal border officers who dealt with Dziekanski before he encountered the police and the four RCMP officers, one of whom used a Taser on Dziekanski within seconds of arriving. Cisowski’s lawsuit is just one of several legal cases connected to Dziekanski’s death and the inquiry. Three of the officers will be in the B.C. Court of Appeal this week to challenge the inquiry’s authority to make findings of misconduct against them; Taser International is suing the inquiry commissioner over the findings of an earlier report that concluded the weapons can kill; and the officer who fired the Taser, Const. Kwesi Millington, is suing the CBC for libel.

Overruling recommendations by a local police force, B.C.’s Ministry of the Attorney-General won’t lay impaired-driving charges after a fatal crash last year involving an RCMP officer who was also at the centre of the Robert Dziekanski case. The ministry’s criminal justice branch announced Tuesday it will instead lay a single charge of attempting to obstruct justice against RCMP Corporal Benjamin Montgomery (Monty) Robinson. The charge stems from an Oct. 25, 2008, crash in Tsawwassen, B.C., in which motorcyclist Orion Hutchinson was struck by a Jeep driven by Cpl. Robinson, who was off duty at the time, the ministry said. After the crash, Cpl. Robinson gave his driver’s licence to a witness and left the scene to carry his two children, who were in the Jeep, to the family’s nearby home, defence lawyer Reg Harris said in an interview Tuesday. Cpl. Robinson has said he’d consumed two beers earlier that night and, once leaving the crash scene, drank two shots of vodka at his home. “He had volunteered that he had consumed liquor, yes,” Mr. Harris said. Cpl. Robinson then returned to the scene of the crash, at which Mr. Hutchinson was pronounced dead. The collision was investigated by Delta police, who in June recommended the Crown lay charges of impaired driving causing death and dangerous driving causing death against Cpl. Robinson. But in a statement Tuesday, the government said “available evidence does not establish to the criminal standard of proof beyond a reasonable doubt, that at the time of the collision Cpl. Robinson had a blood alcohol level over the legal limit, that his ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by alcohol, or that he was operating his vehicle in a dangerous manner. …” Unlike other provinces where police lay charges directly, British Columbia requires the Crown to approve charges suggested by investigators. Neil MacKenzie, a spokesman for B.C.’s criminal justice branch, was tight-lipped about what the charge of obstructing justice stems from, saying only that it was due to the “alleged actions” of Cpl. Robinson in the hours after the collision. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/british-columbia/mountie-escapes-impaired-driving-charge-in-bc-death/article1384800/

The Crown has approved a charge of attempting to obstruct justice — but not impaired driving — against RCMP Cpl. Benjamin (Monty) Robinson, who was involved in a fatal accident last year.  On Oct. 25, 2008, Robinson was driving a Jeep in Tsawwassen that collided with a motorcycle driven by 21-year-old Orion Hutchinson, who was killed. Robinson was the most senior of the four RCMP officers involved in a confrontation with Dziekanski at Vancouver airport in October 2007, during which Dziekanski was shocked with a Taser and died. Robinson testified at a public inquiry earlier this year that he gave the order to use the Taser. He was suspended with pay following the crash and RCMP spokesman Sgt. Tim Shields said Tuesday the suspension continues. Shields said an internal code of conduct investigation was ordered after the accident, but that investigation will not proceed until the criminal case has concluded.

The RCMP  itself does not hesitate to cover up, not prosecute one of it’s own historically now as well. Claiming “We have to wait until the court proceedings are over and then we will hold the adjudication hearing where the final discipline will be decided upon,” he said. “It only makes sense to wait until all the evidence has come in during the court process before that final disciplinary hearing is held.” Of course all of the evidence will not be available if the RCMP itself fully does not investigate the matter.

The motor vehicles branch suspended Robinson’s driver’s licence for 90 days following the crash – a suspension he tried unsuccessfully to appeal. The officer argued in B.C. Supreme Court in March that a motor vehicles adjudicator didn’t properly consider his statement that he left the scene of the collision, had two shots of vodka, and then returned to the scene. Robinson is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 8 on the obstruction charge. His lawyer, Reg Harris, said Robinson will plead not guilty to the charge. “Any criminal charge is a significant event for anybody, so it’s hugely significant that he’s now facing a criminal charge,” Harris said. 

More amazing still, the vehicular accident which resulted in the death of Orion Hutchinson and the obstruction charge to Monty Robinson came one year almost to the day of Robert Dziekanski’s death. Corporal Robinson was suspended with pay following the crash, and over a year later that suspension continues. Note that he wasn’t suspended for his involvement in the death of Mr.Dziekanski, but for the drunk driving and obstruction charge in the accident.

Two men are dead as a result of Mr.Robinson’s direct actions. Will there be any justice for either of them?

He has been charged with participating in a criminal organization, trafficking a firearm, possession of proceeds of crime and conspiracy to money laundering. Police identified Shuttleworth in court documents as a full-patch member of the Zig Zag Crew, the so-called puppet club of the Hells Angels.

Liars- Mounties ‘misleading everyone’

  another.drink3

 

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 hypocrtical 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..http://www2.canada.com/burnabynow/news/community/story.html?id=8d1d3edf-7582-4031-93f0-d6efddf13a8d

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 realy 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.

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.

Here is what I know for sure in Canada proper policing, management ,  supervision  human rights commissions are a real fact of life, society, in schools, life,  in churches, governments, commerce, institutions, civil and public services, professional services too,  and elsewhere, even on the net,  for you will always have those 30 percent at least of the persons who will try to cheat, lie  , steal, bend the rules, falsely believe they are above the laws, Self  regulation alone is too often pretentious, farcical, often not applied as well. That applies especially to the professionals, civil and public services, police, municipalities, politicians now as well..

Alberta should not renew RCMP contract

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

News reports made it clear that RCMP investigations into embarrassing and fatal actions of their own members were inadequate to the point of being a coverup. At the field level there were many reports of highly dubious shootings by RCMP members, and criminal investigations into the conduct of members when off duty. Former RCMP Commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli resigned in disgrace after giving conflicting statements to a Parliamentary committee. ” http://www.calgaryherald.com/opinion/Alberta+should+renew+RCMP+contract/3498184/story.html?cid=megadrop_story 

This is not a new revelation I myself now had detailed to you about 25 years ago my own experience in Canmore Alberta with the perverse RCMP where I got 2 speeding tickets on the same spot years apart and how the RCMP next also had covered up for it’s pervere buddies, and I had also entered my complaint about their perverse acts into the Canmore Queens court record as well now.

The actual needless number of times the arriving polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski  was shocked by the RCMP in the Vancouver Airport  , as well as the actual speed with which the Taser was deployed, have also been issues at the ongoing BC RCMP -Robert Dziekanski   inquiry, along with the clearly VERY POOR  manner in which next the stunned Robert Dziekanski  was monitored and treated by the RCMP after his collapse.

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? If true, the Nov. 5, 2007, e-mail titled “Media strategy — release of the YVR video,” from RCMP Chief Supt. Dick Bent to assistant commissioner Al McIntyre, establishes the four have been lying through their teeth. This critical document suggests the four officers committed perjury and that senior officers sat silent while they did so. Worse, it seems there are many other documents that have not been turned over that may be relevant. This e-mail was one of 260 documents on a CD sent by the RCMP to the justice department last April, yet the federal lawyers didn’t open the CD until last week.. Commissioner William Elliott’s carefully parsed press release was equally unbelievable: “This was simply an oversight. Unfortunately in an exercise of this magnitude, such an oversight can occur.” Bollocks. No one but a moron overlooks the import of an e-mail like this. The officers deny the explosive content is true and Roberts says Bent was wrong in what he said. But their protestations ring hollow after almost 18 months of bluster and denial. So does Elliott’s threadbare these-things-happen excuse. The situation is as bad as the most virulent critics of the Mounties feared. This is no longer about four officers who made mistakes in judgment: It’s about an organization that thinks it is above the law.  .It is time to thank commissioner Braidwood for his excellent work in bringing these unsettling facts to light and it’s time to appoint a special prosecutor.  The B.C. Law Society should also begin an investigation into the conduct of Roberts and any other federal lawyer involved in this staggering lack of disclosure. That was not an “oversight.” It was professional incompetence or a cover-up. http://www.vancouversun.com/Mounties+Tasering+should+face+prosecution/1716660/story.html
RCMP management clearly lied, also to blame.. Mounties read through 1,000 internal e-mails preparing for inquiry
 
“RCMP’s communication strategy ultimately failed. The force did not publicly correct inaccuracies or defend its role in the case, fearing that information might alter witnesses’ recollection of events. Police also believed, the report said, that public opinion would switch to supporting the RCMP after all the facts were known. We found neither argument valid,” the report said. “For deeply rooted systemic reasons and long-held views regarding the importance of due process, the RCMP’s management of issues and communications were lacking and caused many of the problems the organization was trying to avoid.”We therefore recommend that clear, precise guidelines about what can be released, and at what point in the investigation, be developed, and that these guidelines be based on a liberal view of releasing information.” http://www.canada.com/News/Mounties+read+through+internal+mails+preparing+inquiry/1714755/story.html

VANCOUVER, B.C. – Dziekanski would still be alive if not for RCMP confrontation: said a pathologist.  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.   Dr. John Butt, who has served as chief medical examiner in Alberta and Nova Scotia, told a public inquiry into Dziekanski’s death that the stress of the confrontation – including the use of the Taser – likely caused the Polish man’s heart to stop.  He said it was a death that could have been avoided.  “Is it fair to say that, in your opinion, had Mr. Dziekanski not been Tasered, not been restrained on the floor, that he would still be alive today?” asked Walter Kosteckyj, the lawyer for Dziekanski’s mother.  “I suspect that, yes,” Butt replied during his testimony Wednesday. “Is that a strong opinion?” asked Kosteckyj.  “Yes,” replied Butt.  he said he could find no evidence that Dziekanski’s heart was damaged due to chronic alcoholism. That’s a contributing factor listed in the autopsy report.  Butt said  . “I don’t think there is alcoholic heart disease so I don’t think that it has any role (in Dziekanski’s death).” A lawyer for the federal government told the inquiry Dziekanski may have been on heart medication, however Butt said there was no indication of that in his medical records, including from a mandatory health exam required to immigrate to Canada. Butt, who worked on a report about Tasers for the B.C. Police Complaints Commission four years ago, said he was also concerned the autopsy report barely mentions the fact that Dziekanski was stunned with a Taser. Dr. Charles Lee, who conducted the autopsy, told the inquiry earlier in the week that the Taser may have contributed to Dziekanski’s death. But his report makes one mention of the weapon, only to explain marks on Dziekanski’s body. “I don’t see how one could possibly not mention the Taser in the commentary in this case,” said Butt. “Whether or not that’s going to say that it’s hugely relevant to the cause of death, it’s enormously relevant to the events in this case.”  Lee has told the inquiry that while he knew Dziekanski had been shocked by a Taser, he was not aware he was shocked multiple times.

Mounties accused of ‘cooking up’ story Toronto Star – ‎  VANCOUVER–Four Mounties “collaborated to fabricate” their story to justify their conduct when Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski died while in their custody, a lawyer told a public inquiry yesterday. The lawyer added that inadequate medical procedures by the Mounties after Dziekanski, 41, received five Taser jolts were “a contributing factor” in his death.  In wrapping up questioning of Cpl. Benjamin “Monty” Robinson – who was in charge when Dziekanski died at the Vancouver airport Oct. 14, 2007 – Rosenbloom posited the Mounties were “fast at work at the scene, cooking up the story” and continued to collaborate on it at the detachment.Robinson made six modifications to earlier facts in a March 2 letter from his lawyer, almost six weeks after the inquiry began in January. For example, he changed earlier statements Dziekanski was “swinging” a stapler at the Mounties in a threatening manner and had been unresponsive to their commands.Walter Kosteckyj, lawyer for Dziekanski’s mother, Zofia Cisowski, called the officers’ actions that night “a training film for how not to handle a situation from beginning to end.”  Robinson insisted he gave instructions to Dziekanski to calm down and place his hands on an airport counter in the arrivals area, adding hand gestures to make his points. “Calm down, put your hands on the counter,” he said he told the Polish immigrant. Noted Rosenbloom: “You know that was meaningless in terms of a man without English?” “Yes,” replied Robinson Although testimony from the Mounties involved ended yesterday, there are still 30 to 40 witnesses to appear at the commission.

 Robert Dziekanski was lying dead on the floor of Vancouver’s airport, his entire face blue, 90 seconds after RCMP officers who shocked him with a Taser say he was alive and breathing, a paramedic told a public inquiry Thursday.– A paramedic called to the Vancouver International Airport after Robert Dziekanski went unconscious said the lead RCMP officer told him the Polish immigrant was Tasered only once. Allan Maciak told the Braidwood inquiry, which is investigating Mr. Dziekanski’s October 2007 death, that RCMP Cpl. Monty Robinson didn’t tell him that the Polish immigrant had been hit by a Taser five times. Mr. Maciak said Thursday he could clearly see that Mr. Dziekanski had turned blue as he lay on the floor surrounded by RCMP officers and Richmond firefighters.

Mounties ‘misleading everyone’: Polish group Ottawa Citizen – VANCOUVER — The Polish-Canadian community is demanding that a “special independent prosecutor” be appointed to investigate the Tasering of Robert Dziekanski at the Vancouver airport after the inquiry into his death revealed a growing gap between the RCMP version of events and video evidence.RCMP Cpl. Benjamin (Monty) Robinson, the officer in charge at the time and the last of four Mounties to testify at the Braidwood inquiry, admitted he asked to “change” his evidence after viewing a video of the death shot by a bystander.

Another RCMP officer retracts statements at Dziekanski inquiry The Canadian Press  VANCOUVER, B.C. — Robert Dziekanski was not, as he has been portrayed in the past, the agitated man who withstood the shock from a Taser and swung a stapler at police, the most senior RCMP officer admits. In the hours and days after Dziekanski collapsed and died on the floor of Vancouver’s airport in October 2007, the four RCMP officers involved told investigators he was an aggressive threat to public safety, even after he took the first shock from an RCMP Taser.The officers said they had to wrestle Dziekanski to the ground – evidence disputed by a witness video of Dziekanski’s dying moments.Cpl. Benjamin Monty Robinson told a public inquiry into Dziekanski’s death Wednesday that he made erroneous statements to those homicide investigators.

Police should re-open investigation of Dziekanski incident, say Vancouver Sun  Vancouver – A West Vancouver man who was one of the founders of the Solidarity movement in Poland called for police to re-open its investigation into the death of Polish citizen in 2007. Zygmunt Riddle, said he “absolutely” believes the police handling of Robert Dziekanski should be reinvestigated, in light of the testmony that has emerged at the Braidwood Inquiry. “The testimony of the RCMP officers involved in the death of Robert Dziekanski at the Braidwood inquiry raises serious questions about the integrity and honesty all four officers involved in the Tasering incident,” Riddle said in a letter he sent Wednesday to Attorney General Wally Oppal. Riddle handed out copies of the letter to reporters attending the Braidwood inquiry, which is probing Dziekanski’s death at Vancouver International Airport after 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 14, 2007. Riddle told reporters that he also set up a Facebook group, which has 10,000 members, asking for the attorney general to review other criminal cases the four officers were involved to make sure there wasn’t a miscarriage of justice. He said the four officers have now shown that they made false police statements, which the officers only changed after seeing a video taken by a bystander at the airport.The inquiry has heard that the police statements of the officers were riddled with errors.

  

“The “Wayne” to whom Chief Supt. Bent presumably is referring in the e-mail is Supt. Wayne Rideout, the head of the integrated homicide investigation team into Mr. Dziekanski’s death who admitted under oath at the commission that he had lied to public as to the circumstances of the incident. Supt. Rideout publicly claimed that Mr. Dzienkanski had been Tasered twice, when in fact the man had been hit with the stun gun at least five times. He also claimed the officers had to wrestle the man to the ground because the first shot had no discernible effect, when in fact video evidence is clear that the distraught would-be immigrant from Poland fell quickly after he was first zapped.  The absolutely sickening thing about this entire episode is that were it not for a bystander with a camera phone who had the presence of mind to videotape the conduct of the four officers, their lies, evasions and concocted story might have worked to let Mr. Dziekanski’s death be explained away.  Commission counsel Art Vertlieb is absolutely justified when he observed Friday that this delayed disclosure raises questions about whether the RCMP has actually shared everything in its files that Mr. Braidwood needs to do the job.”  http://www.thestarphoenix.com/Dziekanski+probe+turns+into+fiasco+RCMP+bungles/1716292/story.html
