Edmonton family searching for answers after man in 'confrontation' with remand centre staff dies

WARNING: This story contains a graphic photograph.

A grieving family wants answers after 50-year-old Danny Robinson died following a confrontation with staff at the Edmonton Remand Centre.

Robinson's family said he was pulled over by Edmonton police on Aug. 23, and taken into custody for unpaid traffic fines. His brother was able to pay the fines the following day and Robinson was expected to be released that evening.

"And I didn't even know for 24 hours, or whatever it works out to, nobody told me that my son was in the hospital," Robinson's mother, Marilyn Hayward, said in an interview.

After six days in a coma, the father of two was dead. The only explanation the family has received was that his heart stopped and his brain was deprived of oxygen.

His mom remembers him as forgiving and helpful, with a brilliant smile.

"All he ever wanted to do really was his best and to make others happy," she said.

An investigation into what happened is now underway. But for the family, it's been a difficult process.

Hayward, who lives in Ontario, said she was told that her son became confrontational after being asked to wear a mask upon release, something she thought was odd, because her son hadn't had a problem with that before.

"That doesn't explain all of the marks on his — his whole head was just beaten," she said. He also had marks on other parts of his body.

Just a reminder that you don't *ever* want to go to jail. I have a cousin that got caught driving without insurance, got 6 weeks in the Remand. Not a nice place to be.

RCMP mishandled teen's sexual assault claim, made arrests without reasonable grounds, watchdog says


Mounties failed to adequately investigate a teen's sexual assault and arrested people without reasonable grounds, according to the civilian watchdog agency that oversees the RCMP.

Those rulings by the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP come from the dozens of public complaint investigations concluded by the agency this year that criticized the actions of RCMP officers.

When a complaint is made against the RCMP, Mounties often carry out the initial investigation and report back to the complainant. If that individual isn't satisfied with the RCMP's findings, they can turn the case over to the CRCC.

The CRCC has concluded nearly 200 public investigations so far this year. It disagreed with the RCMP's initial findings in almost half of them.

All of the cases posted online are scrubbed of any identifying information; names, locations and dates have been removed.

In one case investigated by the CRCC, an officer arrested an intoxicated 13-year old youth (whose sex was not disclosed) for breach of probation. According to the evidence in the case, the young teen disclosed that they had been sexually assaulted earlier that day, but the arresting RCMP officer took no immediate action and instead put the youth in a police cell overnight.

"Because of the delays in launching the investigation, physical evidence was not preserved. Nonetheless, a full investigation was carried out, resulting in charges and a criminal conviction against the offender," says the CRCC's final decision.

...

No 'reasonable grounds' for arrest

A few dozen cases probed by the CRCC involved unreasonable arrests.

In one of them, a man and two of his friends were driving on the highway when they were pulled over for speeding. While one of the vehicle's occupants was searching for documentation, the RCMP officer asked about small flakes of an unidentified substance on the vehicle's console.

The Mountie then arrested the three vehicle occupants for possession of a controlled substance. He frisked the three individuals and searched one occupant's pockets, his vehicle and the belongings in the vehicle.

"The commission concluded that the RCMP member's belief that the flaky substance he observed was marijuana was not sufficient to provide reasonable grounds for an arrest," said the CRCC report.

"The pictures taken by the man at the time of the arrest indicate that the crumbs observed, which were not dark green, could have been the remains of a number of substances, including bread.

"The commission found that the decision to arrest the man was unreasonable, and that handcuffing him was an inordinate use of force in light of the unreasonable arrest."

Lawyer wants inquiry into alleged threats of retaliation against MLA and CBC journalist by Lethbridge police

A Calgary defence lawyer is calling for a public inquiry into allegations that members of the Lethbridge Police Service have threatened retaliation against NDP MLA Shannon Phillips and CBC journalist Meghan Grant for exposing misconduct within the force.

Michael Bates represents both Phillips and a woman who accused a retired LPS inspector of sexual assault. Both of his clients received anonymous whistleblower letters in June regarding discussions within the service.

"In one of the disclosures, there is a suggestion of a potential plan of retaliation against a named member of the professional media as well as a sitting member of the legislative assembly of Alberta for what can be inferred as [them] having sought public accountability of the Lethbridge police service," Bates said at a Lethbridge Police Commission meeting on Wednesday night.

"Does the commission have any policies or policing standards which direct the chief of police to protect citizens, or members of the media in particular, who are seeking public accountability from potential retaliation against them by members of the Lethbridge Police Service?"

CBC News has confirmed the MLA is Phillips and the member of the media is Grant — a court reporter for CBC Calgary who has written extensively on controversies within the LPS. The identity of the whistleblowers is not known.

Rob vanSpronsen, the chair of the commission said a letter from Bates was received on Sept. 27 requesting an inquiry into whistleblower protection.

"The Lethbridge Police Commission takes seriously the allegations raised in the letters and will be reviewing the request for a public hearing as well as the accompanying questions he asked," he said in an emailed statement.

Review notes that RCMP struck a handcuffed individual, but will not be prosecuted for assault:

$1:
There is easily evidence capable of providing reasonable grounds to believe the offence of assault was committed. While in terms of the range of conduct that could constitute assault, this assault would be minor, the fact that the police officer occupied a position of trust and considerable authority, and that the affected person was in his custody in a non-public secure environment, handcuffed, makes the situation more serious. The application of physical force, particularly any form of kicks, strikes or blows, on a handcuffed prisoner requires careful consideration and objectively articulable justification. It is the opinion of the executive director that compelling evidence existed to provide reasonable grounds to believe this officer committed an offence. The force used was more than was reasonably necessary, if it was necessary at all, to perform the lawful execution of the officer’s duties. Had the Crown found that the evidence met their standard for prosecution, the officer would have been charged.

The subject officer’s actions started with unprofessionalism when he was arguing with the affected person. It was clear to the witness officers and the civilian witness that the subject officer was making the situation worse. The witness officers did not engage with the affected person, but the subject officer, who was their supervisor and should have known better, argued with the affected person and called him names. The affected person and the subject officer both laid the groundwork for a yelling match of such intensity that spit was flying around, but only one of the participants was a sober, on duty, police officer expected to carry out his responsibilities with professionalism and restraint. Based on the evidence as a whole, the reasonable inference is that the subject officer lost his control and responded with anger.

The affected person was handcuffed and immediately surrounded by officers in a secure and controlled environment. The purpose of handcuffing a person is to restrain and make them more easily controlled. Their ability to attack someone is significantly restricted, as is their ability to defend themselves. While the fact that a person is handcuffed does not automatically make all uses of force excessive, it does change the dynamic in such a way that some uses of force will be excessive. Having three officers surrounding a single prisoner in a controlled environment further changes the dynamic by providing a wider range of control options to the officers.

At this point, the subject officer struck the affected person. This use of force was not a control tactic. There was no rational connection between this slap and any spitting since the slap would not have stopped it. The conclusion that a reasonable person would draw here is that the subject officer, already angry with the affected person, slapped him with the intent to demean and humiliate him. With no proper purpose and therefore no necessity, the force used can only be excessive.

Given the position of the ACPS, the subject officer will not be charged with a criminal offence. This report and ASIRT’s concerns will be remitted back to the RCMP for their attention and appropriate consideration of alternate methods of accountability for the conduct in question.

So this jerk will get some BS administrative punishment for a week or two and go back to his job. And RCMP officers wonder why so many have trust issues with them and their conduct.
