Hey we have loads of example of how ruthless, crooked the cops are now in Canada.. their self regulation does not work, and Canada wide now  too. None of this is acceptable. and the overall justice system, Justice Ministers are already known world wide to be really bad too.


  Monday June 15,2009 Canadian Press  VANCOUVER — A judge has decided the inquiry into the death of Robert Dziekanski will be allowed to make findings of misconduct against the four RCMP officers involved. The officers who stunned Dziekanski with a Taser at Vancouver’s airport challenged Commissioner Thomas Braidwood’s authority to make findings of misconduct against them. Braidwood had warned the officers he would consider allegations made at the inquiry — that they acted improperly and then lied to cover up their actions. The officers claimed those allegations amount to criminal offences, which public inquiries can’t do. They also argued that federal police officers are outside the jurisdiction of a provincial inquiry. But Justice Arne Silverman rejected those arguments, which means the inquiry can resume as scheduled this Friday with closing submissions.

Most Old media, Management Twits failed to adjust to the new reality

CTV bought by Bell because CTV has been losing value, populairty too.. other media firms are also being bought out..
Managers of the news media still tend to put profitability over providing  real service to it’s readers, customers and then wonder why they are going out of business so fast. A number of Canadian media organizations have announced layoffs and the United States has seen newspapers close altogether as well as layoffs.
“The Canadian media industry is at best in a state of flux, while others would argue in a state of turmoil. With the advent of the internet, media is changing and going through a “correction period”. Media outlets have to change with the economic times and the new technologies. Like any industry, it’s unfortunate so many people are losing their jobs. There are major job cuts all over. CanWest (which owns the Regina Leader Post, Calgary Herald and Saskatoon Star Phoenix and Global television stations) is on the brink of bankruptcy; CHUM Radio and TransContinental have had major job cuts; TorStar (Toronto Star) posted a $211.2 million fourth quarter loss; CTV has cut jobs and is closing some television stations.  With all of that happening, the fat cats at CBC are begging for more funding from the Conservative government. Apparently a billion dollars doesn’t cut it … to help pay for expensive trips for executives etc. Just read up on vice-president for French Services Sylvain LaFrance who apparently racked  up $80,000 in entertainment, meal and miscellaneous expenses. Sure, maybe big private company executives do this, but those companies aren’t funded by taxpayers.”
Now  firstly like you I am sorry anytime a person  anywhere loses his or her job, except for : the crooks, realtors, used and new car salesmen, computer dealers, bad cops, bad civil and public servants, bad lawyers, bad accountants, bad doctors, bad nurses, bad pastors, politicians and their aides, and seriously any job loss  it is a great tragedy for many too, one  that is not to be underestimated, a job or career changes are debasing to one’s health, as well as one’s family and one’s finances too..
Secondly I happen to know a little bit about the news media, the telecommunication industries, etc.,  even by the sad true fact that some of them they really in the past did not care really about consumer welfare or  interests but mainly  their own agendas.. people who do not learn fail the grade in real life..  and because now they were solely self centered, self interested,  so  me too now I have thus been no fan of the RCMP, CRTC, Bell, Sympatico, Rogers, CTV, National Post,  Global, Regina Leader Post, Calgary Herald  Saskatoon Star Phoenix , TorStar (Toronto Star), the Suns, even basically  cause firstly they did not appreciate my own personal email alerts and some had wrongfully told me so…  Well I am still writing and they on the other hand  many of them now are really  going to the desert where they can have more time and  mediate on their own past  mistakes.. even conceit, and concede inflexibility, a  lack of foresight, lack of people skills..
Thirdly it was predicable the impact that the computer net would have on the the newspapers, and decades, decades ago I told the Calgary Herald in writing to plan ahead for it.. I did..  How come Google though was smart enough to see the trend and to make loads of money from it and the others were inflexible , doing their own, the same old thing and so they  lost out?

I also had a decade ago cancelled my newspaper subscriptions, especially the Gazette, which had old news copied from other news sources mostly too, and I had also now stopped my watching boring TV News stations and programs,  as per Microsoft’s  Mr. Bill Gates own advice , and instead I solely use,  used my computer for all of my multi media needs..
For my choice I still do like the Globe & Mail, the improved CBC news, ,  Canadian Press, Google news , CNW group and some others….
The new age- The Internet and the word “free” are so entwined when it comes to getting news and information online from mainstream media outlets that consumers aren’t going to want to give it up, Anyone born in the 1980s the computer age now  doesn’t expect to pay for news. Advertisers have to pay for it.
Amazon Inc. has recently unveiled its newest version of the Kindle e-reader, a device that allows users to digitally view and read books, newspapers, magazines, and documents. Although print versions of books and newspapers are still profitable, many experts predict their decline in favor of digital documents.  The new device offers easy access to digital versions of various texts – books, newspapers, and even regular PDF documents. According to Amazon, the company has signed deals with three leading textbook publishers to put their content on the electronic reader. Reportedly, Amazon has struck deals with the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Boston Globe to feature their editorials on the device.

MP Stockwell Day alleges protectionism. Says U.S. businesses use security as way of controlling market. Some American businesses are using security concerns as an excuse to try to keep Canadian goods out of the U.S. market, says Canada’s trade minister. So what real good is he now doing about it besides talking about it? Ever notice how many news media still do even lie and say their still often pretentious, usless MP is the best? I look at the results… not the mere words.
WASHINGTON — Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said Canada needs further assurances from General Motors Corp. and other struggling automakers that the industry remains viable over the long term, and that any federal bailout will not be a “waste of taxpayers’ money.” The federal government announced in December it was prepared to offer $4 billion in aid to the automakers, including $3 billion for GM Canada and $1 billion for Chrysler Canada. General Motors, in a proposal submitted last month to Ottawa, is seeking $6 billion in Canadian aid as part of a restructuring plan that also proposes sharp cuts to employee pay and benefits for retirees. Still the General Motors Corp.’s auditors have raised “substantial doubt” about the troubled automaker’s ability to continue operations, and the company said it may have to seek bankruptcy protection if it can’t execute a huge restructuring plan. The GM auditor’s report “leads us to the same conclusion that we had before, namely that we have to review their plans very closely and make sure they make sense” for Canadian taxpayers. I shed no tears for the bad executives, managers of GM. My new Buick had a busted transmission straight from the factory even, next the replacement Buick had brake problems,  and was the last GM car I bought too.. so they GM  are reaping what they sowed  too..
Canada- The useless RCMP pretentious, inadequate watchdog says he lacks the powers to check whether the Mounties have made changes to prevent another Maher Arar affair. Paul Kennedy, chair of the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, told a Commons committee today he can provide no assurances the government has enacted the Arar inquiry’s recommendations or also the Taser recommendations or whatever? Fire him too ASAP along with all of the RCMP. Undeniable images of Dziekanski’s horrible death, and the undeniable reality of  the glaring contradictions between the officers’ statements and what really happened. Many people are in jail because the Queen’s courts had relied on what they believed to be accurate accounts of events by trained RCMP officers, supported by their notes made at the time. The Dziekanski inquiry is rightfully raising troubling questions about the reliability of that RCMP evidence presented . The contradictions and inaccuracies in the evidence of the three officers who have testified suggest undeniably the RCMP officers  were incompetent or more likely dishonest. Their accounts were showed before all to be wildly inaccurate and self-serving. Under a video evidence, and  the lawyer’s cross  examinations, the RCMP officers changed their initial written down accounts of the Vancouver  airport Taser death details, clearly showing that these RCMP  officers now should be personally as well pursued for lying to the courts, obstruction of Justice. Their RCMP superiors as well who had initially wanted to hold the same video for 2 years and not give it back to the owner. 
The federal and provincial governments are reviewing bailing out the automotive manufacturing industry in the midst of a recession. They obviously better think twice about it too. Now that more Canadian and US cities have Metros, electric railway cars, many people have now  put their old cars away for good. Many people have stopped buying new cars, meaning also many people have stopped leasing a car, car leasing sales have dropped by 2/3. Employees Salaries alone are not the reasons all cars are expensive, for the salaries make up 7 percent of car costs. The costs of oil and gas, car maintenance, tires, parking, storage, and car insurance contribute to the expensive  ownership costs of cars as well.
CBC: A Health Canada study of canned pop has found the vast majority of the drinks contain the chemical bisphenol A, a substance that imitates the female hormone estrogen and is banned in baby bottles. Out of 72 drinks tested, 69 were found to contain BPA at levels below what Health Canada says is the safe upper limit. However, studies in peer-reviewed science journals have indicated that even at very low doses, BPA can increase breast and ovarian cancer cell growth and the growth of some prostate cancer cells in animals. 
The Most Dangerous Cities in Canada according to MacLean’s clearly seem to be in the WEST, which also has the highest divorce rates,  and they all next get likely worse because of the present recession and drugs? Predictable even these are the get rich quick, boom and bust  places where many persons now who had left their PARENTS  back EAST.
Unhappily married women are more likely than unhappily married men to suffer high blood pressure, obesity and high blood sugar, putting them at greater risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes, say U.S. researchers. While both genders are just as likely to feel depressed in strained marriages, the similarity appears to end there. And yet next  many women foolishly still do  think a quick divorce will bring them next  riches and happiness next, and significantly more women file for a divorce over men, but it almost all of the cases  does not go the way they had expected it to go and  in many ways.. they next rather cannot overcome Carma, the fact that they are  reaping  what they themselves had sowed, for  they had initially made a bad choice of a mate firstly,  or were too lazy, and/or had an unrealistic expectation of what marriage was, is. Marriage  it is not just living together, sex.. but a lot of hard work for both now too. Blaming others mainly over personal accountability is the typical crook’s way. Do see this top post

RED NECKED CONSERVATIVES also  LIE  claiming all of the Canadian news media are lefties. ” The Sun chain of papers isn’t left wing. Baton Broadcasting which is CTV is owned by the Bassets who are bag men for the Tories. Canwest Global’s Leonard Asper introduces Harper during campaign rallies. The Globe and Mail may not be far right but they are a business paper. Talk radio (CFRB for example) in this country is all hard line right wing. Regional media in the is very right wing. The Toronto Star just hired the former editor of the Chicago Sun Times, the most right wing, big city newspaper in the USA. So we’re left with the CBC and Tom Long is changing it to the right. So much for the old claim of a left wing media in this country”. To me an immoral right winger is no different from an immoral leftie as well..

February 17, 2009

It is getting worse for the RCMP


Tax payer’s money abuses, false expense account statements, stealing, tax evasions,   obstruction of justice, cheating, lying,  drunkenness, impaired driving, pornography,  Adultery, VERBAL, PHYSICAL ABUSES, are all ESPECIALLY unacceptable for any civil and public servants. It is a clearly established fact with good basis as to why our Canadian leaders, politicians, police, military, public and civil servants  who are always to be exemplary are even personally are to held to a higher standard, accountability in reality.  

Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.  “In the case of police, it is in everyone’s best interest that there is full, effective, independent, transparent and objective oversight. It goes without saying that an absence of effective oversight will inevitably result in the erosion of the community’s confidence in the police.”
 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? Speeding is not the main cause of car accidents, impaired driving is, but too many cops are alcoholics it seems who wrongfully do sympathize with drunks and as a result do not arrest drunks all year


And why did it take decades now to cause this RCMP declaration  to come forth? OTTAWA – The RCMP plans to ask outsiders to investigate serious incidents involving Mounties.  Commissioner William Elliott says cases in which officers are linked to death, serious injury or criminal behaviour will be referred to provincial or federal organizations for investigation.  Where no such regimes exist, the policy allows the national force to ask an “external law-enforcement agency or other duly authorized investigative agency” to conduct the probe.  And in cases where that’s not possible, the RCMP may appoint at least two Mounties from another province, along with independent observers to review their findings.  Any officers assigned to investigating their own will be screened for possible conflict of interest and, where possible, the primary investigator should outrank the subject of the investigation. Elliott says the RCMP “must strive to be as open and transparent as possible and fully accountable” for its actions.  “We would prefer the RCMP never to be called upon to conduct investigations of our employees,” Elliot said.  In some provinces, regimes are in place to conduct independent investigations.  “The RCMP encourages the adoption of independent investigative bodies for all jurisdictions.”


Public Safety Minister Vic Toews welcomed the announcement.  “Our government’s position continues to be that effective review should be external to the force,” Toews said in a statement. Would be nice if he by example practiced first also what he preaches to the RCMP for this perverse  Conservative Hypocrite and his government have abandoned their once promised pre election goals of transparency and accountability for the bad acts especially of their own members even by shutting down parliament recently!
Public complaints against the RCMP climbed by almost 35 per cent in the year ending March 31, the force’s watchdog said in an annual report that also cited continuing concerns about the Mounties’ use of Tasers. The Commission for Public Complaints against the RCMP said the most common public gripe against RCMP members during the last fiscal year–one in five — involved allegations of rude, dismissive, biased or non-responsive behaviour by an officer. Bad attitude was closely followed by complaints about the quality of RCMP criminal investigations, ranging from allegations of improper witness interviews and improper handling of evidence to concealment of facts or misleading reports. These accounted for 17.3 per cent of the complaints. The report by the independent review body, which was released Thursday, said the number of public complaints increased to 1,692 in 2008-09, up from 1,258 the previous year and 956 in 2006-07. The commission, which is headed by Paul Kennedy, took credit for issuing a report a year ago that has pushed the RCMP to rethink Taser use, training and reporting. The commission said, however, it still has concerns. Among other things, it said it is conducting an investigation into all in-custody deaths up to February 2009 involving the use of a Taser by a member of RCMP. It also said it plans to release its final report by Sept. 7 into the death of Robert Dziekanski, the Polish man who died after being Tasered by RCMP officers at Vancouver’s international airport. Based on the commission’s analysis of the 2008 statistics, the report said, the Taser is increasingly being used as a deterrent. It said the weapon was taken out of the holster but not fired in almost 50 per cent of the cases it was used. Still, the commission said, it’s concerned that calls involving “mental health” or “suicide” resulted in more Taser deployments than any other incident type, especially when there was no evidence in the usage reports that mental health calls were any more risky than other incident types. Kennedy warns there is a growing perception of a trust deficit with the RCMP that must be addressed. “The trust deficit can be eliminated by increasing transparency and accountability of RCMP activities by means of an enhanced regime for civilian review of RCMP activities,” he wrote. “Failure to address this issue increases the risk that distrust will become the dominant characteristic of the public-police discourse.”
CALGARY – Tasers in Alberta will be tested annually under new guidelines released by the provincial government.  Police officers will only be allowed to use the conducted energy weapons under certain circumstances set out by the document. It also says an officer who believes a suspect may cause injury to him or herself or a bystander can use a Taser, but someone who is simply running away isn’t enough of a reason.  A use-of-force report must also be written every time one of the weapons is deployed.  Alberta has been reviewing its Taser policy and also looked at the report into the 2007 death of Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver International Airport after he was repeatedly zapped by a Taser.  The B.C. government responded to the report by ordering all police to restrict the use of stun guns. 
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.
 Robert Dziekanski had already been stunned twice when one of the four RCMP officers who confronted him at Vancouver’s airport called for another jolt of the Taser.  “Hit him again! Hit him again!” Cpl. Benjamin Monty Robinson can be heard shouting on a bystander’s video of the fatal confrontation.  Robinson, the officer in charge in the early morning hours of Oct. 14, 2007, is scheduled to testify Monday at the inquiry into Dziekanski’s death. Robinson will be asked to recall what orders, if any, he gave the three other officers; why he asked for another Taser shock even though Dziekanski was already on the floor; and what he was doing to ensure Dziekanski was still alive before firefighters arrived.  As well, Robinson will likely be asked about inconsistencies between the other officers’ testimony, what they initially told police and what was captured on the video.  The officers’ dinner break at the RCMP’s airport detachment was interrupted by a radio dispatch about a man throwing furniture in the international terminal.  Three of the officers have already testified they never said a word to each other and were given no orders from Robinson in the several minutes it took them to drive to the airport and walk to Dziekanski, who had been at the airport for nearly 10 hours and didn’t speak English.  The other officers have said that, after a brief interaction, Dziekanski became difficult when he tossed his hands in the air and took a few steps away.  When he turned back toward the officers, Dziekanski was holding a stapler, which the officers have said made them feel threatened.  That’s when Const. Kwesi Millington delivered the first Taser shock.  The weapon was used five times in all, although it’s not clear how many of those connected with the man.  As Dziekanski lay unconscious on the floor, his hands cuffed behind his back, the other officers have testified that none of them were performing proper pulse and breathing checks.  An airport security guard said he checked Dziekanski’s pulse only after he saw Robinson trying to find a heartbeat while wearing leather gloves.  When firefighters arrived, the fire captain on duty that night has said it didn’t appear as if anyone had been monitoring Dziekanski, who by then had no pulse, wasn’t breathing and, according to fire Capt. Kirby Graeme, was likely already dead.  And Graeme said the officers initially refused to remove Dziekanski’s handcuffs.  The inquiry has also focused on inconsistencies in what the officers initially told police, and the accuracy of Robinson’s initial statements is sure to be scrutinized.   The other officers admitted making several mistakes in their police notebooks, statements to homicide investigators and internal reports about what happened.   For example, the officers have said it took several Taser shocks before Dziekanski fell to the ground, even though he collapsed seconds after the first deployment.  They also incorrectly said Dziekanski had to be wrestled to the ground. One even claimed Dziekanski kept walking toward the officers with a stapler raised above his head after he was stunned.  The officers have insisted their early accounts represented their best recollections of a stressful, fast-paced event.  Millington was accused by the lawyer for the Polish government of lying about what happened to justify his actions – an accusation the officer flatly denied.  Crown prosecutors decided last December that Robinson, Millington, Const. Bill Bentley and Const. Gerry Rundel wouldn’t face criminal charges, although the inquiry’s final report could include findings of misconduct.
Mountie had ‘no plan’ when approaching Dziekanski Most experienced RCMP  officer involved in fatal confrontation says he ordered tasering, but concedes he was not ‘current’ on weapon. Cpl. Robinson said he was trained in the use of tasers in 2003, but did not go through refresher training until a month after the incident. He was suspended with pay from that post after an October auto accident INVOLVING DUI.‘I was mistaken,’ Mountie testifies after recanting statement at   
Cpl. Benjamin Monty Robinson, the fourth officer to testify at the hearings, said he doesn’t think he contributed to the tragic outcome.  Robinson testified  that he gave the order to shock Dziekanski with a Taser, and repeated the command as many as two more times.  A bystander’s video played numerous times at the inquiry shows Dziekanski was on the floor for the second stun, and Robinson acknowledged Dziekanski had either already collapsed or was on his way down by the end of the first shock.  Still, he maintained that he gave the command when Dziekanski was still standing.  On the video, one of the officers can be heard shouting, “Hit him again! Hit him again!” after the second stun, long after Dziekanski had fallen. The other officers have said that voice belongs to Robinson.  Robinson said he didn’t remember giving a third command, but didn’t dispute that it was him.  “I don’t rule that out, it was me a third possible time,” he said.  Robinson was moved to the RCMP’s Olympic Integrated Security Unit, which is preparing security for the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, but was suspended with pay shortly after he was arrested last October in connection with a fatal collision.  A 21-year-old motorcyclist was killed when he was struck by a Jeep in suburban Delta, south of Vancouver.  In a news release dated Oct. 28, 2008, Delta police said they were recommending the off-duty officer – subsequently identified as Robinson – be charged with impaired driving causing death and driving with a blood alcohol level over the legal limit, but the Crown has not announced any decision on charges
VANCOUVER, B.C. – The Mountie who stunned Robert Dziekanski with a Taser panicked and later tried to cover up his mistakes by making inaccurate statements about the event, the lawyer for Dziekanski’s mother suggested. His initial accounts of what happened contained numerous inaccuracies, several of which suggested Dziekanski was more aggressive than what’s shown on a bystander’s video. There were errors in notes Millington made that night, statements to investigators in the days that followed and at least two internal reports he filed about the incident. He said at the time that Dziekanski was yelling when police approached and was waving a stapler “wildly” just before the first stun of the Taser. He also said in the statements and notes that Dziekanski was still standing after three jolts of the 50,000-volt weapon and continued to walk towards the officers. Millington said on numerous occasions that the four officers had to wrestle Dziekanski to the ground. But he conceded at the inquiry that those parts of his statements were incorrect. Dziekanski’s mother, Zofia Cisowski, said she doesn’t believe what the officers have said. “They want to save themselves, they want to cover,” Cisowski said outside the inquiry.  “I don’t believe these people.”  and neither do I.    IT ALL SHOWS HOW FLAWED the RCMP internal reviews really are too..
The Crown and RCMP announced in December that the four officers will not face criminal charges, but changes in their accounts of the events of that night have raised questions about whether the RCMP might reopen its investigation. All three officers who have testified so far said they made errors in their statements. They changed their recollections after viewing a video shot by a bystander. Neil MacKenzie, a spokesperson for the criminal justice branch, said in an interview yesterday that Crown counsel relied on the officers’ statements in determining whether or not to proceed with charges.
Now   as if you all did not know that already that the Local and the national police cannot be respected to do a decent inquiry into the alleged wrong doings of any police officers, cause we can seem all to know that the accused police officers do not hesitate to lie, to cover-up the reality… now self regulation  of the police force, is just useless self masturbation always it seems, thus we need independent  reviews of all police complaints for all of the police forces too in Canada, with real negative consequences on the guilty persons now too and it is  as simple as that

So 4 RCMP officers lyingly had now said that they killed the new Polish immigrant Dziekanski  in self defense cause he was attacking them with a stapler.. for sure they all need now to be tried for Manslaughter and jailed.
Why 4 RCMP officers needed any weapons to even deal with one single man is really unbelieveable to start of with too..   the RCMP has zero credibility. 
Anyone who follows these hearings can clearly see how contradictory many of the RCMP testimonies now are to the reality too.. it is mainly the RCMP who spin or try to believe their own fabrications of reality..
RCMP Const. Bill Bentley said Dziekanski was jolted by a police Taser gun after the Polish immigrant grabbed a stapler. But Bentley’s original version of events was different. “Subject grabbed stapler and came at [officers] screaming,” read his original notes, written within days of the Oct. 14, 2007 incident. That’s not true, Bentley admitted today. A widely shown video of the incident shows Dziekanski made no such move. Bentley said his memory was refreshed by watching the video and getting a good night’s sleep. But Commission counsel Patrick McGowan wondered how much the video changed his recollection. “If you didn’t have video of this matter, would you be here today saying the subject grabbed a stapler and came at the [officers] screaming?” McGowan asked. “I don’t know,” Bentley replied.

Officer fears Poland could pursue charges, inquiry told    


Someone should tell RCMP Const. Kwesi Millington that there’s a video on YouTube showing him delivering five Taser jolts to a Polish immigrant who was doing nothing to threaten officers or the public. Millington made his first appearance yesterday at an inquiry into the death of Robert Dziekanski. And his version of events leading up to the death of Dziekanski is so out of whack with the video we’ve all seen, it’s as if the guy has no idea there’s a video out there that exposes the whole thing. Millington claims Dziekanski “was approaching” police officers with a stapler in his hand just before he was shot. The video shows nothing of the kind. It shows Dziekanski raising his arms in the air and walking briefly away from police officers. He then stops and turns towards them. And then he gets zapped five times.    

The RCMP officer who jolted Robert Dziekanski with a Taser weapon is contradicting a fellow officer in testimony Tuesday at the inquiry into the Polish immigrant’s death. RCMP Const. Kwesi Millington insists he has never discussed the Oct. 14, 2007 incident that left Dziekanski dead, with the three other officers involved.  It contradicts testimony given by RCMP Const. Bill Bentley, who told the Braidwood inquiry last week the group recounted their version of the events during a “critical incident debrief” after the incident. 

“What I do remember is we did have a critical incident debrief where we all told our version of events that transpired that evening,” Bentley testified last week. Not true, Millington said Tuesday when presented with his fellow officer’s testimony. “I don’t remember any of these discussions,” Millington said, agreeing that his opinion contradicts that of Bentley’s testimony.  

Images taken from video footage show Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski falling to the ground after being tasered at the Vancouver airport Oct. 14, 2007. The video shows that Dziekanski did not resist or confront police.   

Lawyer Walter Kosteckyj, who is working for Dziekanski’s mother at the inquiry, is a former RCMP officer. Kosteckyj wonders why no one with the Mounties has stepped forward and said, “This was not our finest hour.” That’s disturbing. Day by day at the inquiry, one thing is made more and more certain: This was not the RCMP’s finest hour. They the RCMP  have had many many bad years now  rather..   

Mounties looking like Keystone Cops  Calgary Herald – By Don Martin, Calgary HeraldFebruary 28, 2009 Police officers have three primary serve-and-protect obligations–investigate threats to civilian safety immediately, use their weapons responsibly and tell the truth faithfully under oath.  

One Mountie recently testified he was prompted into Tasering Dziekanski when the man, who had thrown a chair and spent 10 hours in the airport, brandished an open stapler in a threatening way. Dziekanski died after being Tasered and subdued by the Mounties. Laughter and heckling broke out in the public gallery as RCMP Const. Kwesi Millington, one of four officers called to the airport Oct. 14, 2007, demonstrated how an agitated Dziekanski held the stapler. The inquiry lawyer asked how “four healthy, young officers” who wore body armour and carried guns could have believed an office tool was a threat.   

the Polish government’s lawyer accused a Mountie of lying during his testimony.  Const. Kwesi Millington immediately denied colluding with other officers or lying under oath to absolve his use of a Taser on Dziekanski at Vancouver’s airport in October 2007.  “You and your fellow officers collaborated to fabricate your story in the expectation that it would justify your conduct to your superiors, do you deny that?” said Rosenbloom, the lawyer for Dziekanski’s home country of Poland.  “We never did that,” replied Millington during his third day of testimony.  “I am suggesting that you and your fellow officers intentionally misled (homicide) investigators and you continue to lie under oath at this commission, do you deny that?” said Rosenbloom.

Millington’s recollection of the events based on his memory, his hand written notes and the reports he wrote proved to be embarrassingly at odds with the Pritchard video.  Millington noted he first fired the Taser because Dziekanski picked up a stapler and began “swinging it wildly” and then moved aggressively towards the officers. Yet on examination by commission counsel Art Vertlieb, Millington failed to find any evidence of the wild swinging on the video and admitted he was in “error.”  He said he fired a second time because Dziekanski was “still standing” and had to be “wrestled to the ground” by the other officers present. Another error. The video shows the first shot caused Dziekanski to stumble, fall and writhe on the ground screaming in pain. Why the third shot? He was, said Millington, still fighting and struggling with the other officers trying to handcuff him. Error again. To that point no officer had even touched the writhing screaming Dziekanski.

The Vancouver Sun    RCMP’s reputation takes a beating at Braidwood inquiry   March 5, 2009     You’ll remember that shortly after Robert Dziekanski was Tasered and died in Vancouver International Airport, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said it would not be returning a videotape of the incident to its rightful owner for one or two years, because it might taint witness testimony. Well, the tape has certainly had a negative effect, but what it has tainted is the reputation of the RCMP. And it, along with other evidence from the Braidwood inquiry into Dziekanski’s death, reveals that the RCMP and police forces across the country have a lot of work to do to regain the public’s trust. In fact, the tape reveals what could be construed as a practice of using Tasers first and asking questions later, and worse, it reveals that the attending officers couldn’t even trust the notes they made shortly after the incident. This week, Const. Kwesi Millington, the officer who fired the Taser, testified before the inquiry, stating that he feared for the officers’ safety after Dziekanski picked up a stapler. His comments prompted snickers from spectators who watched the tape, and who obviously questioned how four officers, clad in Kevlar vests, carrying guns and pepper spray and trained in self-defence, could fear a lone man with a stapler. Clearly, if the officers’ actions were in keeping with RCMP policy at the time, then the policy permitted the Tasering of suspects upon even the slightest provocation. Worse, Millington Tasered Dziekanski a total of five times, even after Dziekanski had fallen to the ground and after the officers had applied pressure to his back. Now it’s awfully hard to understand how the officers could still have been frightened of Dziekanski, but that’s still not the worst of it. No, the worst thing is that if the videotape didn’t exist, one would have to rely on Millington’s notes about the incident, notes that Millington was forced to repeatedly admit were wrong. In fact, confronted by videotape evidence about the number of times Dziekanski was Tasered, Millington had to confess that one would get a “distorted view” of the incident by reading his notes. This is a devastating admission because, in most cases of Tasering, the officer’s testimony is all we have to rely on. And police forces have repeatedly defended their use of Tasers, and have even taken shots at critics — witness the recent press conference held by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police and the Canadian Police Association, where representatives questioned the fitness of those who criticize Taser use. Given that the police must have the trust and respect of the public if they are to function adequately, this is an attitude that must change, particularly in light of the evidence from the Braidwood inquiry. That means that police forces across the country must be open to reconsidering their Taser policies in the face of honest concern — the RCMP’s recent modest changes to its policy are good first steps, but only first steps — and must be willing to admit that they made mistakes. And not just when they’re called before a commission of inquiry.

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.”
“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.”


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.
It has always confounded me as to why the liars, crooks, deceivers, abusers  too often do still do think they can get away with now, next and forever.

New RCMP policy on Tasers restricts use


Medical journal article says Taser stun to the head can cause seizures  OTTAWA – Stun guns can cause seizures if their tiny electric barbs pierce the scalp and shock the brain, says a new article on the accidental jolting of a police officer.


OTTAWA – New RCMP policy recognizes that Taser stun guns can kill – especially “acutely agitated” suspects – and restricts their use to cases involving threats to officers or public safety. The overuse of the TASER gun by law enforcement officers is a worldwide problem,  Taser use needs to be clearly restricted to cases where lethal force would otherwise be used. TASERS should only be used in situations that would normally warrant an officer firing his sidearm. Additionally, if OnStar can tell when/where a car’s been in an accident, then electronic tracking of TASER gun firings must be possible, and in fact, should be mandated for all models accepted for use by law enforcement agencies. Finally, much like when an officer discharges a firearm, every TASER incident should be fully reviewed, and each officer held publicly accountable for their actions.   I think if similar regulations were put in place, officers will think twice before they use their TASERs in unwarranted situations.  And those who fail to adhere to this policy need to be seriously punished, potentially going as far as permanent dismissal from the RCMP.   We need police who protect citizens, not police who kill them. Sadly too many of RCMP officers are “thugs”, out to harm unarmed civilians, that is why they had joined the force, and it wouldn’t follow that restricting their use of tasers would lead to more gun use  BECAUSE NEXT OF THE  related paperwork, internal reviews associated.. what every cop hates even more. The RCMP is a catastrophe from the top down. They are an embarrassment to other police forces in the country.



  • The murderous RCMP
  • RCMP
  • Who looks after the citizens welfare? The pretentious security Minister 
  • The legend is dead
  • The Police already tapped my internet, phone..


    One thing you learn in Canada is there is no right of free speech here, especially if you exposes the sins of the  cops. The police do too often lie, abuse their positions, authority, misrepresent themselves and try to stop you from posting the truth, the bad things about them..  they get especially upset when they find out you have been sending letters to the elected representatives about how bad the cops really  are and they falsely try to intimidate you, but that does not stop me..


    But the Police are not the only one who hate public exposures of their wrong doings, so do some bad mayors, bad politicians, bad guys, crooks, bad corporations.


    “At the risk being blacklisted or visited by the police, I would like to voice my grave concern over RCMP investigations of friends and acquaintances of peaceful opponents to the Vancouver Olympics.  I am particular disturbed by B.C. Attorney General Kash Heed saying the RCMP has a duty to “check out” the information they get. Since when do people who disagree with a government policy automatically need to be investigated?  I fail to see the line of reasoning that starts from dissent and leads through to security threat. And more importantly, should the country’s police forces have the arbitrary right to make that equation?  Will authorities one day place under surveillance anyone opposed to the federal budget or the war in Afghanistan, or the RCMP’s handling of the Dziekanski affair? This already happened in the U.S. when J. Edgar Hoover was FBI chief. Canada is on a very slippery slope here and the public needs to be vigilant.” Fred Sengmueller, Toronto

    0rcmp13Ironic this bad Premier of Alberta did not last long, and so next also his successor..  

    First Nations represent about four per cent of the population but more and more of them are being imprisoned — from 13 per cent of the offenders in custody in 1998 to 20 per cent a decade later. In Saskatchewan, 80 per cent of inmates are native. In Manitoba it’s 70 per cent, in (Racists) Alberta 40 per cent.In those three provinces, aboriginal people also are least likely to be given probation or conditional sentences.
    That is a major scandal that demands investigation..


    Here in Canada I had attended some political meetings in Alberta  at the request of a neighbor  of mine, a lawyer,  who worked for the Calgary city hall, shortly after that the same neighbor had told me that the local Calgary police had next complied a report on me at the request of the mayor, for apparently it was common practice for the mayor to use the police services to evaluate all of his possible political opponents. No wonder the main jail was across from the mayor’s office too. Next the same lawyer told me that the provincial government also had an Alberta RCMP report on me as well done by police..  and apparently I was classified as a “religious terrorist” because I also do talk about Jesus.  Cops in Canada seem to really hate Christians and Jesus Christ and why is that??. And not just free speech but there really is no no such thing as privacy in Canada.. I understand that the Post office office has a database on the citizens of Canada in PEI as well.  Inappropriate Spying on Canadians by the government is an established fact.
     The same police can’t catch all of the social welfare frauds, drug pushers, drug users, real bad guys, tax evaders, child molesters, citizen abusers, crooked cops, drunk drivers, crooked civil and public servants, bad politicians but they found time to harass me, to unlawfully use their authorities, to visit me in my home six times because they do not like me writing openly about the crooked too often cops and the need of  their rightful prosecutions..

    Police and security chiefs ARE NOW able to scour the contents of every email and internet phone call  sent in Britain. The program, known as Deep Packet Inspection, will also give them the ability to eavesdrop on phone calls made over the internet. The proposals,  revealed by Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, come amid increasing evidence that terror groups such as those in the Mumbai attacks are using internet telephones to avoid telephone taps on land line and mobile phones. I HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE, but I do  rightfully object to a police state and the political watchdogs being used by any of by perverse, crooked politicians to watch over any of their rightful opponents, At least they should get a court order from a judge stating the reason for their search now too and next also their actual findings..
    And I am not convinced that our too often rather incompetent, racist , cost ineffective  national police, security forces, RCMP included now are capable of dealing with the Muslims terrorists especially  since they clearly cannot speak Russian or Arabic or any other foreign languages  for the most part still.
    In the last 10 years, crime rates have fallen roughly 27 per cent but costs have risen 44 per cent in policing and 33 per cent in corrections. Our prisoner population has managed to stay constant.  Is that a paradox? Or is that because those in the system are smart enough to ensure they all keep working and our prisons remain full, even though there are far fewer crimes. Also the report notes “the most embarrassing lacunae in Canadian data” is the lack of useful information on our courts — “we have no systemic way of assessing whether the courts are getting more or less effective in dealing with the cases that they see, let alone understanding how much as a society we are paying. For a developed nation, this is disappointing to say the least … How bad is it?”  It’s appalling — even mischief cases take more than half a year on average to process.

    (Prov 21:9 KJV)  It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.

    Bullies, abusers, liars, slanderers tend to be clearly immoral persons who try to enslave others uancceptably even if they profess to be Christian or what ever,,

    >>My ex-husband smokes pot and drinks a lot, and I am told, so does his girlfriend. He once told me that I am too righteous because I don’t drink or do drugs, and I attend church.

    and that was a verbal abuse if I have ever seen one..

    so do thank God daily that he has now removed your from this  abusive relationship..

    and do ask Him, God  to take all the tears away and he will.

    (Psa 4:8 KJV)  I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

    (Rev 21:4 KJV)  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

    and there still can be a good life after divorce with God’s help…

    Truly any type of abuse is unacceptable and anywhere too

    and exposing it loudly in public as well as calling the police is the best way to deal with it for everyone’s benefit, the abuser included.

    God himself clearly does not accept verbal, physical, or human rights abuses

    (Mat 18:6 KJV) But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

    (Mat 18:7 KJV) Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

    (Mat 18:8 KJV) Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.

    No we ALL cannot STOP, take the ostrich approach under the guise of love to the definite bad acts of others, we as Christians are still called to be fruit inspectors of those who profess to be Christians ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY RARELY QUOTE IT in actual context OR LIVE THE BIBLE THEY CLAIM THEY BELIEVE IN-

    (Gen 31:42 KJV) Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now empty. God hath seen mine affliction and the labour of my hands, and rebuked thee yesternight.

    (Lev 19:17 KJV) Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.

    (Neh 5:7 KJV) Then I consulted with myself, and I rebuked the nobles, and the rulers, and said unto them, Ye exact usury, every one of his brother. And I set a great assembly against them.

    (Psa 119:21 KJV) Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.

    (Prov 24:25 KJV) But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them.

    (Prov 27:5 KJV) Open rebuke is better than secret love.

    (Eccl 7:5 KJV) It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.

    (Mat 17:18 KJV) And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.

    (Mark 1:25 KJV) And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.

    (Mark 4:39 KJV) And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

    (Mark 8:33 KJV) But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.

    (1 Tim 5:20 KJV) Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

    (2 Tim 4:2 KJV) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

    (Titus 1:13 KJV) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

    (Titus 2:15 KJV) These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

    (Heb 12:5 KJV) And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

    (Rev 3:19 KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

    “This is from the book by Patricia Evans

    Verbal abuse is a kind of battering which doesn’t leave evidence like physical abuse does. However, it can be just as painful, and recovery can take much longer. The victim of abuse lives in a gradually more confusing realm. In public she is with one man, in private he becomes another. Often, for the verbally abused woman (man), there is no witness to her reality and no one to understand her experiences. Friends and family continue to see her ex, the abuser, as a really good guy and, certainly, he agrees with them. The verbal abuser, while maintaining his charm with others, always takes his abuse behind closed doors. It is a means of holding power over his wife( husband) /partner.. Many women and some men leave a marriage and come back into the singles’ world with the diminished self-esteem that comes from a verbally abusive relationship. The fact that many of these women (men) have never even realized that they were being abused, makes it easy for them to enter another abusive relationship. A verbal abuser is an insecure person and immature person who is looking for power and control over another.In order to help you recognize abuse, remember that all forms of verbal abuse are methods of manipulating you for the purpose of establishing power over you. The following are some of the forms of verbal abuse the author helps you recognize.

    1. Withholding: a purposeful, silent treatment.
    2. Countering: a countering of your ideas, feelings, and perceptions, even going so far as to refute what he misconstrues you to have said.
    3. Discounting–a putdown of you or something you hold dear.
    4. Blocking and diverting–this is a sneaky, covert way of violating your dignity.
    5. Accusation and blame: generally involves lies about the partner’s intentions, attitudes, and motives. The author states that accusation and blame is present in all verbally abusive relationships.
    6. Judging and criticizing: lies about your personal qualities and performance.
    7. Trivializing and undermining: abusive behavior which makes light of your work, your efforts, your interests, or your concerns. The abuser attempts to dilute meaning and value in your life. Undermining might occur when your partner laughs at you, for example, when you burn yourself cooking. It is also jokes at your expense. Undermining is occurring when you feel a “so-called joke” is mean rather than funny.
    8. Name calling: no one has a right to call you degrading names. Name calling is verbal abuse.
    9. Ordering: Telling you to do something, rather than asking, or making decisions for you or for the two of you without your input.
    10. Forgetting and denial: the trickiest form of denial is forgetting. Become aware that forgetting is a form of denial that shifts all responsibility from the abuser to some “weakness of mind.”
    11. Abusive anger: this seems to be closely linked to the need to “blow up,” to dominate, to control, to go one up, and to put down. Any time you are snapped at or yelled at, you are being abused.
    Threatening: Physical threats and sexual threats aside, verbal threats are an effort at manipulation. For example, a threat to leave, stay out all night, or take you home immediately is a manipulation for power. The threat of “pending disaster” is designed to shatter the partner’s serenity as well as her boundaries.

    If you counter the abuser or attempt to explain yourself, you will probably be met with such statements as, “I don’t want to hear it, get out of my face” or “Woman you don’t have the brains“, “BYou shouldn’t have said that to me“.

    If you are in a brand-new relationship and see warning signs of verbal abuse, the author suggests you might be wise to let the relationship go. It is not likely that a man (woman) who needs to dominate and control will change easily, if at all. It is also likely that when the newness of the relationship wears off, he will become more abusive. Verbal abuse can become physical in time and physical abuse is always preceded by verbal abuse, according to Evans.If you are in a long-term relationship, you can respond to the abuser as the book suggests and soon discover for yourself whether or not your mate is willing to change and stop his abusive behavior.

    “If you have been verbally abused in your relationship, you may have discovered that explaining and trying to understand have not improved your relationship. Therefore, I recommend that you respond in a new way–a way that will make an emotional, psychological, and intellectual impact upon your mate.”

    The abuser in your relationship may change when he finds that you do know when you are being abused, that you have set limits, that you mean what you say, and that you will not take behavior you don’t like. 

    If the man ( or sadly too often now a women) in your relationship remains abusive, it is not only not your fault,” it is  your responsibility to deal with it, make it public, call the police too.

    Any person cannot still fight with you of you leave his or her presences, even forever.. and there is still a good life after a failed marriage now too. I practise what I preach and often now too.

    The first spouse, love seems  is always the best one in our false pride.. and I know what that is like too.. WE SEEM ALL TO REPEAT OUR BAD TASTE, VALUES.. When they let a person out a prison they generally have a rule not to let them return to his old environment, past home, for five years.. otherwise they will be under the same old bad habits, dispositions too..

    NOTE I lost once everything I had owned.. still next I replaced it all with the same things, even though I never used most of them, old habits and bad tastes DO die hard still too for almost all of us.. 

    Now still reporting publically the abusers, and calling the POLICE TOO most often solves the abuse problem the best.. for if the evil persons do not feel real negative personal consequences, REAL negative public exposures, they really have no reasons to change their bad habits next and likely then never will.

    I rightfully too tend to openly expose all abusers, all bad people, all bad churches, all bad politicians, all bad corporations that I come across, and  often and I  also do do call the police, regulating authorities  often and demand they all be fired,   be put in jail too.

    I was also still surprised how popular this post now is too.

    Employee shot and killed a supervisor..

    “An employee shot and killed a supervisor and four others after an argument at a western Kentucky plastics plant, then turned the gun on himself, police and a company official said Wednesday.”
    And if we delude ourselves to think that we Canadians are not so violent, gun crazy too, yes we too have had our share of revenge killings in Canada, even employers, killing some of some of the bad persons who likely asked for it no matter how tragic basically now their deaths are.  
    I do not believe in violence, for  me the pen still is really mightier than the sword, and a good reputation is worth more than silver and God.  
    I clearly do believe in the right of everyone to speak, to speak out as well,  and to be equally heard by all, so we can all judge what has been said if it is appropriate and we can next corresponding act upon it, even in the church, in the government, on the internet now too. Clearly some people falsely DO DISALLOW THIS RIGHT… the bad persons especially as even I know this for sure. They respond with a personal attack, inquisition, censorship, lies, slanders, diversions, distortions, instead of facing, dealing with the facts, truths being presented. Confirming to many what they still are really like, immoral, abusive bullies.
    I can relatedly say that too me the federal public and civil services, cops, RCMP inluded, related commissions  are all mostly or merely a farce,  pretentious  now still  for the most parts from my many past many dealings with them now too. Just do  Log a complaint about misleading advertising, sales and service abuses  by a corporation, or an abuse by your employer,  or about being falsely discriminated, or you being abused on an internet site, or someone  threatening to kill you for being a whistle blower or what ever, etc., and most of the time you will get back in reply rather lies, distortions, falsehoods and no valid actions..  But next that certainly does not stop me from pursing justice.
    Now for many years I have done my share of blogging and I encountered too many abusers, bullies, liars on the net in secular and religious sites, some detailed at, and I rightfully did not put up with them quietly even if they were from Alberta, or anywhere else too.
    So if I do next want to rightfully get back against a really abusive, unrepentant person  even now  I merely deal with them in writing eventually telling even to all about his or her actual deeds, acts, reputation, image, and I do this very effectively too. Most persons,  Canadians tend not to support the crooks, the bad guys, the visible losers once publicly exposed still nor should they now too. Nor does the news media generally  next too.  I do thus first clearly write to him and to the others next about him, and I do not shoot him. That might haven been kindlier.  Rather I let the whole world know what he is really like, and what he did,  as I had witnessed it myself, and I cannot be sued  now for slander if I am telling the truth too,  and the lawsuit would even bring more bad publicity on the bad guys still too.
    I have seen many persons next in shock, depression, ill even once next fully exposed too.. Church pastors and their wives especially, as well as many Professionals now too.  They had many chances before to stop their wrong doings, to repent already too. But they had  liked to gamble that they can next still get away with it.. and sooner or later that approach backfires, it even makes matters worse. I have even the news media on my speed dial too. So should we all.
    Honest public exposure and prosecution of the major guilty persons serves everyone’s best interest..
     Prov 24:25 KJV)  But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them.

    (Luke 17:3 KJV)  Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.4  And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

    Hanging Up on Early-Exit Fees

    One of the most common Questions I still do get from nay persons is how do I break a contract for breach of services..
    “Hanging Up on Early-Exit Fees Regulators and courts are taking aim at early-cancellation penalties charged by carriers such as AT&T, Verizon, and DirecTV
    There may be 50 ways to leave your wireless carrier. Just don’t do it before your contract is up—or you’ll be forced to pay a fat early-termination fee. That’s the lot facing most U.S. consumers of communications services, from mobile calling to cable TV to high-speed Internet access.  Consider the subscriber who wants to end a DirecTV (DTV) service contract and has to pay $20 a month for the remainder of the term. Breaking a wireless services contract can cost as much as $175. It’s a big reason why few people switch communications providers. At satellite TV company DirecTV, only 1.42% of customers close their accounts each month. Even Sprint Nextel (S), with one of the highest customer defection rates in the wireless industry, loses a mere 2.45% of its customer base in a month.
    A prorated approach? But in a move that could make it easier for customers to drop phone or satellite providers, early termination penalties are coming under new fire from federal regulators, legislators, and courts. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has scheduled a hearing for June 12 to consider potential restrictions on the penalties. And even if the FCC doesn’t act to rein them in, Congress is mulling legislation that would.
    Cable and phone companies, which spend hundreds of dollars on advertising and promotions to sign up each new subscriber, fear they’ll have a harder time recouping that investment if the penalties are diminished too far. And exit penalties exist worldwide: European telco Vodafone (VOD) requires subscribers to pay their monthly fees for the duration of wireless contracts, even if they don’t use the phone.
    FCC Chairman Kevin Martin has suggested that the commission may require service providers to prorate penalties through the life of a contract, so that the longer a customer stays, the lower the fee. The agency may also require that buyers be allowed to drop a service such as a new cell phone contract without penalty within 30 days of purchase. “Certainly carriers may be able to recover legitimate out-of-pocket expenses and costs,” says FCC spokesman Robert Kenny. “On the other hand, we want to make sure this isn’t being used as an artificial means of locking consumers into a particular service provider.” A ruling to alter the allowed penalty structure could come as early as this fall, says Carol Mattey, a former FCC official who is now a managing director for consultancy Deloitte & Touche.
    “Enormous Pressure” Congress, meanwhile, is considering several bills backed by powerful supporters, including Edward Markey (D-Mass.), chairman of the House Subcommittee on Telecommunications & the Internet, and Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-Va.). The measures, proposing conditions for wireless contracts similar to those being considered by the FCC, are already going through revisions in Congressional committees and could be passed in early 2009.  But while the FCC and Congress may impose restrictions, it’s the legal system that threatens to scratch early termination fees altogether. Courthouses from California to New York are flooded with class actions claiming that early termination fees, especially those on wireless contracts, are unfair to consumers. In a landmark ruling on May 27, the Supreme Court refused T-Mobile USA’s request to dismiss one class action based on the cellular company’s contract stipulations that all customer disputes be settled through arbitration. The decision means that all similar suits can proceed—some state courts are expected to decide cases within days—and may open the floodgates to new class actions. “I just see an explosion of lawsuits,” says Mattey. “Every week, every carrier is getting sued. It’s going to create enormous pressure.”
    To preempt state court rulings, T-Mobile and Sprint Nextel have already announced they will start reducing early termination fees as the time remaining on a contract declines. Exact details haven’t been disclosed, though the changes are expected to take effect this year. Just two days before the Supreme Court decision, AT&T (T) announced it would reduce its $175 early termination fee by $5 per month through the life of a new contract. That matched a policy implemented last year by Verizon Wireless, which has also introduced a 30-day risk-free service trial and now allows customers to switch calling plans without starting a new contract.

    Sprint’s Vulnerability The industry would rather make the changes on its own. “Early termination fees are changing based on consumer demand,” says Joe Farren, spokesperson for CTIA, The Wireless Industry Association, noting that consumers can always opt for pre-paid wireless services that don’t require contractual commitments.

    But carriers’ moves may prove too little too late. Lawsuits alone could result in billions of dollars in costs and settlements, and may prompt providers to axe early termination fees altogether. “Pandora’s box is going to open up,” says Jessica Zufolo, senior policy director for telecommunications, media, and technology at Medley Global Advisors.

    For an industry that has long used contracts to keep subscribers on board, elimination of termination fees could spell massive changes, such as higher churn and slimmer margins. A satellite TV company typically spends around $700 to recruit a consumer. For wireless companies, the cost of acquiring customers, including marketing and handset subsidies, is closer to $400, and it typically takes more than a year to recoup. Higher rates of switching could be especially nettlesome for Sprint Nextel, which regularly finishes near the bottom of customer satisfaction rankings. “The biggest loser, unfortunately, in this space is Sprint,” says Serge Matta, senior vice-president at ComScore (SCOR).

    A Dash of Kindness An industrywide, free 30-day trial period would provide cold comfort to wireless providers. The provision would make it easier for a certain percentage of subscribers to start hopping from one provider to another to get free service. Back when long-distance companies abolished contracts, a material percentage of consumers began switching without paying their last bill, says Rich Nespola, CEO of consultancy TMNG (TMNG).

    To keep subscribers, more wireless carriers might follow Verizon Wireless’s lead and begin allowing subscribers to switch to lower-priced plans without having to extend contracts. A recent survey of more than 2,000 users by ComScore showed that 19% of Americans switched to their current carrier for a better price. Carriers may also offer users more free content and other incentives to encourage them to stay. “They’d do sweet things instead of barbs,” says Richard Doherty, director at consultancy Envisioneering Group. But these treats are likely to eat into revenue and margins.

    One potential beneficiary of lower termination costs: equipment manufacturers. Today, an average American replaces a cell phone every 17.7 months, vs. every 16.6 months in 2006, according to consultancy J.D. Power. That lengthening replacement cycle spells trouble for handset makers Nokia (NOK), LG, and Motorola (MOT). If early termination fees go away completely, handset sales could jump 25% in the first six months, Doherty estimates.

    A downside: To preserve their margins, service providers may not subsidize the equipment as much as they do today. Sure, subsidies are becoming less common, and less of a draw for consumers willing to splash out upwards of $500 for a razzle-dazzle smart phone. But, unable to charge termination penalties, service providers may simply pass the cost to consumers as other fees.

    Having your ISP or others instead cancelling your services is easy.. Just continue to post on the net the truth as to what they are like.. and your services won’t be worth anything to them next, they will disconnect you gladly..”

    ” The ISP suppliers, Canadian corporations  now even such as Bell, or Acanac Inc. 1-866-281-3538  still are big unacceptable Liars who undeniably too are  clearly  guilty also of misleading, false advertising too now.. Accanac had mentioned on their internet  site that they do not cap their downloads.. but they conveniently had forgot to also say to all of the potential customers on their site that they lease their services from Bell and   that Bell itself  still regularly between 4 pm to 2 am caps their downloads.. when confronted with this they  Acanac Inc do reply  that  they do not cap their downloads but Bell does.. what an absurd misleading play on words. Mind you Acanac headquartered in Toronto did also claims that  they do provide a solution to this Capping software by means of a Putty software but unfortunately this  Acanac Inc approach is unreliable, requires continual monitoring, and is presently   more problems then what it is worth. Acanac’s support services are also non basically existent in fact, or very very inadequate, slow…So why does our pretentious , inadequate Minister of industry, Jim Prentice MP and his   useless consumer affairs department fail over and over again to look after the good interest of the consumers, but looks mainly after Big business good welfare?”

    My past download and service problems with Bell Sympatico,

    I must say I am still rightfully really unhappy with my past years of experiences with my  Bell  Sympatico ISP services , their DSL Service and  DSL modem included.  I had joined  Bell Sympatico  because they  had advertised to me,  a high speed, unlisted, unlimited downloads and with no capping of their downloads. And had I known beforehand that I would have all of the many  unacceptable problems with them, and I would also also have their RATHER poor support on all of this  next to, plus their dishonest billing, management practices too, I really would not have bothered to GET THEIR  Internet services even  initially ..
    But the way the Bell customer support services tended to poorly handle my rightful complaints was ridiculous next as well. They had mislead me often as to what the real problem was, it was bad poor Bell itself, their inabilities  to meet theor own  promised contract terms. (Prov 27:2 KJV)  Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.
    Bell Sympatico undeniably clearly had beforehand promised me verbally a “high speed unlimited, uncapped, reliable, continual download services,  and not they will try to next to  offer me this, submit  their best service but they had, have  to deliver to my next what was promised.  In reality they had clearly failed to live up to their own advertisement, promises because of their in incapableness now to do so to me and often as I had witnessed even for 24 months and rightfully detailed, had complained to them too.  Bell, their false pride of self importance has gone to their head and has allowed also the employees, even the president of Bell, vice president of Bell Sympatico to wrongfully now be abusive to  me ,  to wrongfully think that they can dictate their  own contract obligations, terms now to others, to wrongfully make their own self evaluations too, and that the others, like me, have no choice but to comply even to their clearly lies, distortions, perversities. The Bell president himself now also needs to be reminded that a contract is a joint agreement amongst two equal, mutually submissive  parties, and that both parties have to respect the contract agreement, and each other, meaning definitely that Bell has to respect the customer now too.. When this immoral Bell perverts now even writes to me and says according to our own records we have adequately supplied your our services, that is a disserted one sided fact, not necessarily or rightfully shared by the customer now, me. I have dealt with another ISP and they were more honest as to what they had promised me and next delivered in comparisons to Bell Sympatico  now too. The Bell competitors  download speeds are significantly higher all the time as well,  with no capping too  and even cheaper too.    
    I knew that there was something wrong with my Bell Sympatico ISP cause when I had started to measure it their internet download speeds and their the torrent download speeds fluctuated , were low and  the torrents were also capped by 90 percent   between peak times 4 pm till 2 am by Bell Sympatico  which was  all absurd,  the torrent download speed  was as slow as   15 kbs and not  rather what I had by Bell in  in the past of 250 to 350 kbs as well during peak hours. Bell for 6 months had lied to me and said the problems were related to my own computer and software when it next turns out undeniably this was never so too.  Bell Sympatico next  was unable in  18 months to resolve my problem, they replaced my modem 7 times, sent me 7 repairmen to my home as well.. and yet in one day my new ISP,  DSL supplier was able to resolve it.. Not only was Bell Sympatico  not delivering to me regularly their promised high speeds on their high speed internet, but I was also having major  internet connectivity site problems and email problems and too often, and I was unable to concurrently use my torrent downloads, email software, and my internet browser. It was all  getting to be so unacceptably absurd too. Bell wrongfully, clearly  had not lived up to it’s promised  contractual obligations.Bell Canada Inc. has been ordered to publicly disclose information that details the level of congestion on its network in regard to a dispute over the company’s internet speed-throttling practices.

    The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission on Thursday told the company it has until June 23 to make public data that was marked confidential in a May 29 filing. Bell had said it needed to keep quiet the information, which details the level of internet traffic and possible congestion on its network, for competitive reasons.

    In a letter sent to Bell, CRTC director general of competition, costing and tariffs Paul Godin said the need for public disclosure outweighed the company’s competitive privacy concerns.

    “Commission staff has determined, based on all the material before it, that no specific direct harm would likely result from disclosure, or that the public interest in disclosure outweighs any specific direct harm that might result from disclosure,” he wrote. (link)

    Bell Sympatico itself next had did me a great favor by cutting off my poor services with them
    but Acanac had next offered an effective solution for it..  and also very much cheaper as well, all at the same speeds too.. “Acanac Residential High Speed ADSL without any Limits  No Blocked Ports or Traffic Shapping, Unlimited Downloading 100 GB of Online Storage Up to 5 Mbps Download and 800 Kbps Upload  $18.95 per month  This offer is only available on a 1 year term and the first year of service”<>

    Upon further advice from the net
    I set my Torrent  settings to:
    -16 kBps upload instead of 60 kbs or more
    -500 kbs (not unlimited download)
    -tcpip.sys patched to 50 connections
    -I do  have firewall disabled, 
    Now I’m even downloading with 400 kbs and yes… the torrents I do use are selected do have many seeds and few peers.. so I am sure I can reach the maximum speed.

    I like to use the torrent to download TV shows especially , I found TV shows often much better than the  movies, resolution included, plus on torrent downloads there generally are no COMMERCIAL interruptions,  and  I can chose when I want to watch the programs as well and this is why I basically do not want the cable TV instead.. I no longer watch my TV not even for the news.. since I also prefer to use the net for my news now too where I can get it at any time I want to  too..

    I have let the putty program, with your recommended setting of 60 run all night, when it seems to be the most critical period, and it worked well.
     I have much appreciated your help and support here..
    and I have been able to use my torrent download, and my email, plus my internet explorer with no connectivity problem. 
    Now with steady confidence I can continue to recommend others to use Accanac as well.
    I wish all the problems of life could be resolved that easily too.
    Thanks a lot.

    The MS operating system was  made for multitasking, even on the net, but with Bell Sympatico I clearly, wrongfully was unable to do this as well. Bell had even recommend that I shut down my  torrent software when I wanted to use my email or browse the internet. And  yes I too was really upset to find out that Bell was still capping my bit torrent downloads.. email, etc.,,

    Who looks after the citizens welfare? The pretentious security Minister


    One in three hit with RCMP Tasers need medical care: The Canadian Press-CBC analysis The Canadian Press – Tue Jun 17, 6:18 PM  OTTAWA – Nearly one-third of the people the RCMP has zapped with Tasers needed medical treatment afterward, prompting new questions about a potent weapon police consider a safer alternative to conventional guns.

    Prosecutors look over charge assessment report on Dziekanski death The Canadian Press – Tue Jun 17, 6:46 PMVANCOUVER – B.C. Crown prosecutors are looking over a police report that will help them determine whether charges should be laid in the death of a man hit with a police Taser at Vancouver airport.

    Who looks after the citizens welfare? The pretentious security Minister Stockwell Day MP who could not become a prime Minister firstly too already.

    The RCMP also  uses Mickey Mouse PR, Public Relationship to cover the reality it fails often to get their man, most of them and definitely!!
     Spending more money to overcome a bad a image is a really bad approach, a waste of time, for you still cannot undo all of the damage done already firstly..
    “In Britain, many police forces are permitted to use Tasers only when there is a threat of serious injury or death, and before that threat has reached a level that would normally allow a gun to be used. The same holds for the police service of Northern Ireland, according to Mr. Kennedy, chair of an independent RCMP complaints body, in his final report on Tasers published yesterday. This should be the policy for the RCMP and other police forces in Canada. Why is that policy needed? Because, as seen in the two archetypal RCMP taserings in Canada – of a distressed Polish immigrant at the Vancouver airport, and of a penknife-wielding 82-year-old man in a Kamloops, B.C., hospital bed – police use the taser as a weapon of convenience.  The problem is not only that the taser can kill, or contribute to killing, as it did in the airport tasering of 40-year-old Robert Dziekanski in October, and in 19 other cases in the past five years. It’s that the overwhelming pain it causes and the total control it asserts (negating the brain’s impulses to the muscles, so that the tasered individual becomes completely locked up from within) are often out of all proportion to the threat”.                 
    Since I know with my own dealings with the RCMP many times the RCMP lies, and they too cannot be trusted to keep their promises, so we need independent reviews on the users of Tasers by the police, with reports in full detail at all times. When cops also do  know they have to do a report they will think twice about using Tasers..
    Watchdog calls for better medical aid in taser incidents
    Globe and Mail, Canada – 18 Jun 2008
    OTTAWA — The head of the public watchdog over the RCMP says officers must seek immediate medical attention for people they zap with a taser.
    Hey I have also shared it before, I know even too often firsthand that even the Police, RCMP, at the instruction of their political watchdogs, local politicians now too do collect a whole pile of data, information on the opposition, us ordinary citizens,  even from the net as well in their feeds.. but so does the post office, and  when you now do ask them to do some real work they all seem to be useless, pretentious. and do also have all their many false excuses just like too many of the politicians, civil and public services, etc..   “I would note that the issues raised , you are referring to in your email do not fall within the purview of the.”.  so how is the RCMP coming on the much too many complaints in Canada  that Bell Sympatico itself had this year falsified many of the customer’s renewal contracts without the customer’s prior approval, knowledge even, and mine included as I had rightfully asked them in writing too to do so too? Well? Or are they too still using their budgets to have a good time? Just like the bad others..
    or are the police falsely going to harass  , investigate the whistle blowers rather or Taser and kill them and the others defenseless persons? THE RCMP falsely still did not get, convict  those murders who killed, Tasered to death,  the polish immigrant at the Vancouver airport even, too..  nor now most of  the big spenders who steal tax payer’s monies. And why? Don’t tell me they need a bigger budget again too?

     Canadians are trimming down on their food, lifestyle and travel habits as costs rise, says a new poll. Three-quarters of the Canadians surveyed said they’ve noticed the price of food increasing in the last three months, and almost half of respondents said they were already buying cheaper products in place of more expensive items.

    Who looks after out for our good welfare, the federal government, provinces?  we do that .. for the others are too busy stuffing their own pockets, having a good time still it seems.
