The Slogan Fits, Doesn’t It?
Maintain the right? Certainly the right wing or the Liberals for all that’s concerned. Our Queen’s Cowboys are trying to maintain SOMETHING and with it’s history of corruption and matters like the starlight rides, they’re not maintaining any reputation save for that of Bad Boys and Girls.
With the Robert Dziekanski hearings underway, Comissioner Thomas Braidwood said he was appalled at newly introduced evidence – two emails from higher up rmcp saying the four cops who killed Dziekansi discussed using their tasers (referred to as CEW – conducted energy weapon – oh gimmer a break puh-lease!) before even entering the airport.
So was this the RCMP brass protecting their underlings? Perhaps it was an attempt to conceal what would become world news once again…and wouldn’t that be a shame with Canadian and U.S.’ian tourism linking together to promote one anothers countries? (I’ve noticed posters up in small towns that promote this idea and they use a steel eyed, almost frightening looking rcmp officer for the Canadian side of the poster). And let’s not forget attracting trade for resources and stability to keep the Canuk-buck up, and attracting investors to a ‘sound’ nation that’s north of the 49th.
The world awaits as the investigation is on hold until September 22nd. Meantime there’s been tears and apologies from federal government lawyer Helen Roberts, but with apology being so De rigeur, who the hell’s going to pay any heed to that?? Lawyers, you fucked up while Dziekanski got fucked down.
Commish Braidwood ordered the usual for new evidence, more delay while all lawyers can go over the materials. So where will the Feds go with this one because NO ONE is going to believe silly excuses like forgery or mistakes. The big mistake here is cops have been receiving anti-terrorist training from the FBI and CIA since shortly after 9/11 and are trigger happy. See where the fear system can strike out (literally) once the brain is induced with red, white and blunder?
This comes at a time when PM Stephen Harper is wanting cops to have internet access….don’t push it, Steve, and put that strap-on CAW away!!! Egads, Canada, your growing pains are showing.
