The Police version of events may be an understatement, an accurate statement
of the facts or complete fiction.
Most, of the domestic assaults reported to Ottawa Police are total fabrications. More often than not, a woman calls 911 for what she rightly thinks will most probably get her instant custody of the kids and total alienation of the kids relationship with their father for months to come.
A very large number of charges are without ANY evidence whatsoever.
It does not matter who you are, not matter what responsible position you hold, any man can be charged with the most dubious of evidence.
Take a senior government employee whose ex wife decided to "disclose to police" allegations of an assault, "pushing", that occurred three months previously.
That resulted in charges, his arrest and to the credit of the police release on minimal conditions, the charges were turfed on the first appearance by the crown but, that's most unusual because the accused just happened to be a well known local lawyer.
Without those kind of contacts and credentials, the average man facing months old allegations of an assault ends up going to trial.
Then take a well respected man profession was in emergency services, his wife punched him in the mouth, and called police, He was arrested, and it went to a one week trial at a cost of 100,000 dollars where he was eventually found not guilty. It took a civil action by the father to recover his criminal legal expenses but that's a very rare occurrence.
The Ottawa Police have a policy of "Male Sharia Law", any allegation of a woman is taken at face value and a man , well, he has no legal rights.
The story of abuses of police power, of arrests, and total destruction all based on no evidence is endless.
Readers should never forget that "absolute power corrupts absolutely".
Around 50% of the population anywhere and everywhere will abuse their absolute
power if they believe they can get away with it. Across groups, 50% is the
figure research has come up with. If you work for a major store, guess who
security check most, employees, and the only way is by adopting accountability,
every employee has to open their own bag, no probable cause, its an
indiscriminate check of everyone who works there to DETER abuse.
Police in any and all jurisdictions, (not to single out Ottawa specifically) can and habitually fabricate evidence.
Take for example, a recent arrest in Ottawa. The police "smelled gas" as an excuse to have the fire department break and enter the home when the police could not. The fact is, the GAS was no connected and there were no gas cylinders on the property.
The police then searched the home, arrested a politically unpopular target on a politically motivated arrest warrant that had it's beginnings with its predictable ending with the dishonourable and corrupt Denis Power and Allan Sheffield helped along but other judges who decided to join the kicking the victim on the ground party when it came to abusing his legal rights.
The police then conspire together to "cover it up", its a code of silence, we could not get em directly so we got em indirectly.
Its that willingness to commit crime by our police that makes around 50% of them criminals in uniform.
It will only be when the courageous amongst them "rat on their brother officers" that the bad 50% will be deterred.
There were several officers who fabricated the "smelling gas" excuse to break and enter. ALL entered phony notes in their note books AFTER conspiring with each other to say "yeah, we will all say we smelled gas".
Trouble is, the fabrications are of a habitual nature, the only way out of it is polygraphs to be used on internal investigations to encourage one of the rats to rat on the rest.
To get the ball rolling, there is at least one fired police officer who was well known for fabricating evidence and to date, not ONE of his colleagues has ratted on his deeds because it would drag many others under with him.
