Police shouldn't be investigating themselves: Ontario ombudsman
WINNIPEG — No province should allow
police to investigate themselves.
That's according to Ontario ombudsman
Andre Marin, who just completed an investigation into that province's
special investigations unit.
He suggests police show favouritism and bias when they investigate one of
Mr. Marin says it doesn't take a genius or a police officer to
investigate alleged wrongdoing by police.
Manitoba is poised to become the second province to create a civilian
body to investigate the police.
Mr. Marin says all provinces should follow that example or police won't
be held to account.

The Ontario Government is intimidated and strongly influenced by those in power

Police Forces are laws unto themselves. You only have to go to any regional area
of Ontario to see examples of how a local police force can rule by terror of
laying charges to at the beck and call of the those with influence power and
Those in authority go with the flow and facilitate fabricated criminal charges,
running the politically correct out of town and destroying lives.
There is no legal recourse in dealing with those who flagrantly abuse their
Local police generally follow local instructions, local judges make decisions to
keep them happy , political decisions rather than legal decisions, and our jails
keep getting fuller.
Local police can engage in all sorts of businesses. Take Timmins, the number of
police officers in Timmins with "businesses" is astronomical. The Timmins Police
Association is tantamount to a Business Association with extraordinary power and
Presently, police complaints are next to useless, as are complaints about Judges
or lawyers, who investigate themselves, if anyone is brave enough to lodge a
Ontario Justice will continue to have a third world reputation until there is a
fundamental change in direction and that will start with independent authorities
to investigate complaints against those with absolute power, and we all know
that absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Our police are saints, right? "front line workers", and none of them ever
suffer any personality disorders, mental health problems, never abuse their
spouse, never abuse anyone, they never commit criminal offences, they never
abuse their powers, they have no motivation to maintain their image, they have
no ego's to improperly influence their reasoning, they are impartial, objective
and of course can be entrusted to investigate themselves. With the greatest
respect to those to whom the above does not apply, that's the gospel or horse
piddle depending on your view point. I chose the later. www.OttawaMensCentre.com
Presently, we have a "police state" run
by the likes of Fantino who is more politician than someone who could or should
be entrusted to 'investigate police". Absolute power corrupts and thats why we
used to have juries to prevent a corrupt judge making a corrupt decision. These
days, jury trials are rare, family court judges rule by fear, intimidation,
outright obstruction of justice by knowingly allowing lawyers like Lesley C.
Kendal of Kingston to personally fabricate evidence and knowingly present false
evidence to the court while expecting their criminal behaviour will be rewarded
with a judicial appointment.
Be warned, while lawyers with such gutter ethics become judges our society is
absent the rule of law which is costing Canadian society billions of dollars.
Canadian children grow up without fathers and one prime reason is one minority
group, extreme feminists are allowed to gain tantamount to absolute power and
use Canada's police forces who make political arrests. Every day, men are
arrested on nothing more than the fingers of a vindictive mother dancing 911.
Judges and police are only too willing to send men
to jail on trumped charges and each time its a chain of corrupt officials who
are entrusted with tantamount to absolute power to 'be honest, impartial and
objective. While we have the present system, it breeds corruption and makes the
name Canada synonymous with the worst third world justice systems. Many of our
police, lawyers and judges are virtual dictators on a power trip, willing to
destroy lives for no other reason than a personal hatred towards men.
They are also consummate actors and unfortunately too many judges and police
regard the standard of an actor's performance as credibility while blinded by
political correctness. Our present system is nothing short of an encouragement
for the criminally corrupt. www.OttawaMensCentre.com
