While the Ottawa Police showcase their DART and Guns and Gangs as examples of
their work, there is another darker side that they don't want to talk about.
The Ottawa Police Claim that 90% of victims of domestic violence are female, and that 90% of those charged are male. Those fabricated statistics hide the fact that the Ottawa Police are on Gender Superiority agenda of promoting violence and very serious criminal offences by Police and those with a vested self interest in the Billions of Dollars the Ontario and Federal Government throw into the bottomless pit of extreme feminism.
You won't hear the Ottawa Police laying charges against their own officers for Fabricating Evidence nor will you hear of them laying any criminal charges against lawyers who Fabricate Evidence personally in court hearings in Ottawa to abuse children.
When you see an Ottawa Police uniform, spare a thought for all the victims of Crime, the victims of the Criminal Organization called the Ottawa Police.
Facts and examples of evidence have been provided to the Ottawa Police and the those who are the subject of the allegations above have failed to deny those allegations and as such it can be assumed that a failure to deny is an admission.
Yet, the Ottawa Police spend incredible amounts of time, effort and money, supporting their own criminals and criminal prosecutions of victims of criminals employed by the Ottawa Police.

The Ottawa Police have yet to lay any charge against one Peter Van Der Zander
for Fabricating Evidence and Obstructing Justice.
Recently Rotten Ottawa Cop, Detective Peter Van Der Zander fabricated evidence NOT to charge one of Ontario's most violent women who attempted to kill the father of their children by strangulation.
Both his superior Officers refused to act in the face of incontrovertible evidence of his own report that claimed he asked the mother if she tried to strangle him and that she denied choking him. Just one problem, the Ottawa Police refused and failed to comply with court orders for disclosure of the Video of that interview.
When the interview was obtained, it showed that Van Der Zander Fabricated his report and his claimed evidence.
Now, the Ottawa Police have turned a blind eye to a never ending series of very serious Criminal offences to cover up and to protect Ottawa's most notorious "Rotten Cop" Detective Peter Van Der Zander, a drop out recently promoted, AFTER the Ottawa Police realized he fabricated Evidence to NOT charge a violent female.
The Ottawa Police are a Criminal Organization engaged in endless Criminal offences in what is called "Old School Policing".
and they wonder why the society has so many people with a hatred of police.
