The Thunder Bay Police Have Been “Torn Open”
$1:
Reporter Jon Thompson explains how recent developments offer an unprecedented look inside one of the country's most troubled police forces

In December 2018, two Ontario government bodies published reports that affirmed what the Indigenous residents of Thunder Bay had long known: that both the city’s police force and the board that oversees it were so encumbered by their own systemic racism that they had been failing to carry out even basic responsibilities.

“Our detailed review of cases involving sudden deaths of Indigenous men and women found [Thunder Bay Police Service] investigators failed on an unacceptably high number of occasions to treat or protect the deceased and his or her family equally and without discrimination because the deceased was Indigenous,” said the report by the province’s Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD). It was titled Broken Trust [pdf].

A separate investigation of the police board, conducted by Senator Murray Sinclair on behalf of the Ontario Civilian Police Commission (OCPC), concluded that “the Board has failed to recognize and address the clear and indisputable pattern of violence and systemic racism against Indigenous people in Thunder Bay. Moreover, the Board’s failure to act on these issues in the face of overwhelming documentary and media exposure is indicative of willful blindness” [pdf].

Canadaland explored the state of affairs that led to these reviews in our 2018 series Thunder Bay. Two years later, we returned to Thunder Bay to learn what, if anything, had changed.

Recently, however, a whole lot has changed, at least in terms of the public’s understanding of what’s been going on in police HQ.

“You know how long we’ve been trying to get inside of that building,” reporter Jon Thompson, who worked on Return to Thunder Bay, tells host Jesse Brown on this week’s CANADALAND. “And what’s happened over the past couple of weeks is it’s just torn open.”

CANADALAND has spent a lot of time in Thunder Bay and the events of the last month have forced us to once again turn our focus back on the city as the police force is said to be "on the brink of collapse."

Ahh, the old 'He slipped your Honour' defence:

$1:
Officers arrested the man and walked him to the nearby police vehicle for transport.

Once at the vehicle, a confrontation occurred between officers and the man, and the three fell to the ground. The man was transported to a hospital, and medical examination revealed a broken jaw.

'Kept under wraps': Edmonton police to replace plane operating 'covertly' for three decades

The Edmonton Police Service (EPS) should explain why a fixed-wing aircraft it’s been operating “covertly” for more than 30 years has just come to light now, a professor of criminology says.
Article content

Police spokeswoman Cheryl Sheppard this week confirmed the service bought the 1980 Cessna 182Q in 1993. It’s been piloted all these years by police employees using it for a variety of operational purposes, including monitoring criminal flights, locating missing people, and working on joint force operations with various law enforcement partners, said Sheppard.

“The aircraft is not used for the transportation of members or goods,” she said in a statement. “It flies frequently and has been an asset to the EPS, contributing to the overall safety of Edmontonians over the last 31 years of its operation.”

But due to the “covert nature” of the aircraft, Sheppard said the police service has only discussed the plane in private meetings with the Edmonton Police Commission and city council “to ensure and maintain both public and officer safety.”


. . .

For Temitope Oriola, associate professor of criminology at the University of Alberta, having the police service keep the aircraft a secret from the public for 31 years is “extraordinary and unusual.”

“The Edmonton Police Service is not CSIS, the Edmonton Police Service is not the CIA,” he said. “We would generally expect that level of secrecy, micromanagement of information and all of that from our foreign intelligence services rather than local law enforcement services.”

He said the service should further explain what necessitated keeping the plane under wraps for so long.

Given that the robber only had an 'imitation gun', all the bullets fired were from police officers. So while they didn't intentionally kill the bystander, their negligence (or shoddy training) certainly did.

They followed their training. They are trained that everyone is always out to kill them. That's why so many police involved shootings have them reloading, and continuing to shoot.

Calgary police chief argues officers justified in use of force against Beltline counter-protesters

Calgary police chief Mark Neufeld says his officers were justified in their use of force against counter-protesters at the weekend “freedom rally” in the Beltline.

In videos posted to social media, police can be seen ramming bicycles into counter-protesters to push them backwards, opening space to allow the larger group of anti-COVID mandate protesters to pass through the area.

Neufeld argued forcibly moving the counter-protesters was “the most reasonable course of action” to resolve the tense standoff between the groups at 5A Street and 17th Avenue S.W., which lasted about an hour. He said police asked the group of about 100 counter-protesters to move to allow the hundreds in the larger demonstration to pass by, a request they refused.

“While any use of force is regrettable, particularly in this situation, police are authorized to use reasonable force to carry out their duties in the broader public interest,” Neufeld told reporters Monday.
