The dirty cops and politicians now too

Public exposure and prosecution of the unrepentant guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest, the RCMP now included.  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/12/19/a-real-stupid-move-a-liberalized-divorce-solution-still-it-only-seems-like-a-cheap-solution/
 
 
 

This is how the RCMP falsely subverts justice.. but we all already knew how dirty the RCMP really is..   

RCMP ‘obstructed’ paramedics, firefighter tells Taser inquiry  VANCOUVER — Richmond Fire Capt. Kirby Graeme, the first responder to reach Robert Dziekanski after he was Tasered by four RCMP officers at Vancouver‘s airport, called the Mounties “unprofessional” for not going to the aid of the Polish immigrant.

 

RCMP behaviour at Taser incident ‘highly unprofessional,’ fire captain says  RCMP officers behaved unprofessionally after Tasering Robert Dziekanski at the Vancouver International Airport, a Richmond fire department captain testified Tuesday.

 

‘Nobody seemed to be doing anything’ Richmond RCMP officers who refused to take handcuffs off of an unconscious Polish immigrant they had just Tasered at Vancouver International Airport were described by a Richmond firefighter as “unprofessional” Tuesday at the Braidwood Inquiry.

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

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. 

 

Three off-duty police officers arrested in Vancouver for assault  The Canadian Press,  B.C. – 21 Jan 2009 The quick flurry of statements by four police departments came after criticism last year that information regarding charges against police officers in the Vancouver region was sometimes slow to trickle out to the public. Several incidents last year involved impaired-driving charges against five officers – one of them fatal – involving three Mounties and constables from Vancouver and New Westminster. New Westminster Const. Tomi Hamner pleaded guilty last month after driving her unmarked police vehicle into a sign while off duty in October. She was fined $1,000 and lost her driver’s licence for a year. The other impaired-driving cases, including one against a Richmond RCMP officer involved in the notorious Taser incident that ended in the death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski, are still pending. McGuinness said the officers involved in Wednesday’s incident got no special consideration. “There’s no exceptions made for the fact that they are police officers,” she said. “When we receive information like this, we want to get that out. There’s no reason to withhold it.” Statistics released by the office of the complaints commissioner in November found that 106 municipal police officers were guilty of misconduct between Oct. 1, 2006, and Oct. 1, 2008.  

and not all guilty officers are charged by their peers and if charged they often get away with it still too. Unacceptable always too.   

Now I ALSO DO know that   Fantino the  commissioner of Ontario Provincial Police  and of Ontario’s often lazy cops  is a big liar, he had recently  lied as to the cause of the majority of accidents during this winter in Ontario, and he had no real truthful statistical information to back up his lying words, but in my many dealings with cops now  I already DO know that most cops lie, and I rightfully   do not respect them and believe them in the first place now too.. Fantino thus here clearly had lied and said that speeding was the major cause of accidents, whereas in reality speeding is only 15 percent of the cause of  vehicle accidents, but drunk driving is the main cause at  45 percent. The bad cops standard method of operation is to kill the bad guys without a trial and to silence them, as WE SAW THE RCMP DO AT THE VANCOUVER AIRPORT NOW TOO, and to remove any police oppositions. Now  all such bad cops firstly themselves need now FIRSTLY to be removed 

More  Tax dollars wasted on Fantino’s ‘pathetic’ attempt to oust adjudicator: opposition Ontario’s highest-ranking police officer is wasting public money by pressing on with his fight to have an adjudicator he accuses of bias ousted from a murky disciplinary hearing, the provincial legislature heard Thursday. New Democrat Peter Kormos called on the government, which appointed Fantino as commissioner of Ontario Provincial Police, to put an end to the spending.”How much more public money will OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino be allowed to burn through in his pathetic attempt to oust the adjudicator at his embarrassing disciplinary hearing?” Kormos asked Community Safety Minister Rick Bartolucci. “It’s the taxpayers who are picking up the tab.”  Despite losing two Divisional Court battles for force the adjudicator, retired judge Leonard Montgomery, to step down, Fantino’s lawyer said this week he plans to pursue the matter to the province’s top court. Fantino had three law firms on retainer being paid “exorbitant fees” at the expense of Ontario taxpayers

Court orders stay of impaired-driving charges against RCMP officer  VANCOUVER, B.C. – The Crown is considering whether to appeal a provincial court judge’s order to stay impaired-driving charges against a North Vancouver RCMP officer. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/02/12/prime-minister-stephen-harper-let-me-repeat-myself/ 

Dirty too often politicians themselves tend to do nothing good about it all still too. BC dirtied Justice Minister had to resign.. he failed to do his duties properly too.. 

 

B.C. solicitor general resigns over speeding tickets; still seeking re-election 

VICTORIA, B.C. – The B.C. Liberal election campaign, which has been on cruise control for much of the first two weeks, has hit a speed bump with the resignation from cabinet of the minister in charge of the province’s traffic laws – over his speeding tickets. 

 

 

 

(1 Tim 1:8 KJV)  But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
 
(Eccl 8:11 KJV)  Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

RCMP Taser deaths face renewed probe  Watchdog to examine officers’ compliance  OTTAWA–The RCMP’s watchdog agency has launched a new probe into the deaths of people who have been Tasered by Mounties. Paul Kennedy, chairman of the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, said in an interview that he initiated this latest review to establish whether there are patterns in the cases where people have died that call for changes.  Kennedy said he is unaware of any comprehensive look at all the deaths that ensued after Mounties began using conducted-energy weapons in 2001. RCMP officers have used the weapon about 4,300 times over those years, he said. Kennedy would not identify which cases he will examine, but said it is about 10 or 11. Amnesty International says 25 people have died after being Tasered in Canada, including 11 who died when RCMP officers used the weapon.  Critics blame many deaths directly on the excessive use of force by police and the Taser’s discharge of a 50,000-volt shock. Kennedy said the goal of the new review is to see whether officers complied with appropriate training, procedures and “statutory requirements” relating to the use of force, and whether RCMP policies are appropriate.  Kennedy’s earlier report urged the RCMP to do a better job of tracking when and how it uses Tasers, called for only experienced officers to be armed with them, and for immediate medical attention for anyone struck by the weapons. The force appears to have acted on some of his recommendations, but not the latter two.
 
THERE ARE TWO IMMEDIATE IMMEDIATE, VIABLE SOLUTIONS TO THIS RCMP FALSE, CONTINUOUS  NON COMPLIANCE PROBLEMS
 
– IMMEDIATELY CUT THE RCMP BUDGET BY 50 PERCENT
– FIRE ALL THE USELESS, PRETENTIOUS RCMP WATCHDOGS, MANAGERS TOO  IMMEDIATELY AND REPLACE THEM WITH DECENT MANAGERS THAT HAVE REAL POWER AND SKILLS
  
No Professionals should be self regulating, or bluntly masturbating.. That is only common decency, common sense. Self regulating does not work anywhere, not even for Corporations, pastors, lawyers, doctors, Nurses, realtors, accountants…
 
” CP Police shouldn’t be investigating themselves in any province: Ontario ombudsman  Wed Jan 14, 2:34 PM  WINNIPEG – All provinces should follow the lead of Ontario and Manitoba and establish a civilian unit to hold police to account or risk more internal investigations marred by favouritism, Ontario’s ombudsman said Wednesday. Andre Marin just completed an investigation into Ontario’s special investigations unit and is advising Manitoba on the creation of a similar body. He said police show bias when they investigate one of their own and Canadians deserve better. “Police should not be investigating other police when there is serious injury or death,” said Marin, who once headed Ontario’s special investigations unit. “When they do so, inevitably the investigations will suffer from favouritism and bring into question the results of those investigations. “The public will never be satisfied.”  Alberta will only allow civilians to observe investigations involving police while officers remain “in the driver’s seat,” Marin said. Despite questionable investigations into police shootings in Quebec and British Columbia, both provinces defend the status quo, he added. Police in Manitoba have come under fire for their botched investigation into a fatal traffic collision involving an off-duty Winnipeg constable. A public inquiry was called after Crystal Taman died in February 2005 when her car was rear-ended by the officer at a red light. Derek Harvey-Zenk, who had been drinking that night, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death and was given two years of house arrest. An inquiry concluded the investigation into Taman’s death was “riddled with incompetence” and recommended Manitoba set up an independent body to conduct similar probes into police conduct. Police who investigate themselves often give officers months before asking for a statement because they “need time” to recover from the trauma, Marin said. The same courtesy is not extended to civilian witnesses, who are immediately segregated and questioned. He pointed to the passengers on board a Greyhound bus on which a young man was decapitated last summer. Although police say civilians aren’t equipped with the necessary investigation skills, Marin said that is a self-serving argument. It doesn’t take a genius – or a police officer – to probe alleged wrongdoing by police, he said. “You don’t have a mass murderer on the loose,” Marin said. “It’s a question of whether there was legal justification for causing serious injury or death.”
