I think the biggest tell is that they haven't charged those two with anything yet.

Encampment protesters arrested by Hamilton police describe injuries, SIU investigating

Members of the Hamilton Encampment Support Network (HESN) and other advocates, who were arrested by police during protests last week, described their experience during a media conference Monday morning.

Those facing charges allege they were left with bruises, scrapes, sprains and concussions, among other injuries, when they were taken into custody.

Ontario's Special Investigations Unit (SIU), which probes police-related incidents that result in serious injuries, is now investigating.

Videos and photos captured during the protests show officers tackling several members of the group outside the central police station on Friday and an officer pinning a woman to the ground with their knee at J.C. Beemer Park on Wednesday.

Rowa Mohamed identified herself on Monday as the person with the police officer kneeling on top of them.

She said she was yanked to the ground and her hijab pulled off "as the man put the full weight of his knee and his body onto my neck and my head."

Five people were charged in connection with the protest at J.C. Beemer, three with both assaulting a police officer and obstructing police. The two others are charged with obstructing police and assaulting a police officer, respectively.

A sixth person was arrested outside the central police station on Friday. They're charged with assaulting a police officer.

Opinion: Police training across Canada should adopt reforms proposed in Edmonton

The report contained quotes from citizens and summaries of their thoughts. We are focusing on the quotes and summaries that supported changes to police recruit training. There were skills identified as lacking. Officers and recruits should:
Article content

Recognize cultural differences with both verbal and nonverbal communication;
Understand the uniqueness of cultural communities and racialized communities;
Better understand the world views of others;
Understand mental health and addictions;
Train on trauma-informed practice and understanding the issues around disabilities;
Increase their awareness about the expertise offered by the social sector by being placed as new recruits with social agencies;
Learn pronoun awareness in their language and be able to recognize conscious and unconscious bias in themselves and other officers.

There were quotes and statements that described how training in trauma-informed practices might best occur. We see these as a request for application of best practice methods in pedagogy, the art and science of teaching.
Article content

“A white person cannot educate someone on what it is like to be a marginalized person.”
Pursue opportunities to bring all officers up to the same level of training.
“Trauma-informed practices should be considered core, mandatory training that is routinely refreshed.”
The training should be conducted by community organizations … that have experience working with traumatized individuals and families. ... n-edmonton

Peter Nygard won't be charged in Winnipeg cases involving 8 women, police say

Winnipeg police have been building a file on Nygard since 1968. Shitty police work from a shitty police department. Could have stopped this predator decades ago.

Top Mountie violated her legal obligations by being too slow to respond to complaints, judge rules

B.C. environmental, rights groups welcome court win over RCMP delay in approving watchdog report

In 2014, groups opposed to the Northern Gateway pipeline alleged that undercover police officers spied on a church meeting, recorded licence plates and monitored activists' private social media accounts.

But while a report into the allegations by the independent Civilian Review and Complaints Commission (CRCC) was completed in June 2017, it was not made public because it required a response by RCMP's commissioner.

The B.C. Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) took the RCMP and attorney general to federal court over the delays in late 2020.

In Tuesday's ruling, the judge summarized the complaint as "alleging that RCMP members had illegally spied on Indigenous and climate advocates opposed to the Northern Gateway pipeline," and accused police of unlawfully sharing "the collected information with other government bodies and private sector actors."

Those allegations were addressed in the June 2017 report by the CRCC, which confirmed many of the alleged "monitoring" incidents occurred, but for the most part ruled that "it was reasonable for the RCMP to monitor events for the purpose of identifying criminal activity."

However, it would take until November 2020 for Commissioner Brenda Lucki to respond to the report and so make it available to the public.

"They used that loophole to prevent the public from seeing the report for 3½ years," said Kai Nagata, a spokesperson for Dogwood, one of the environmental groups behind the original 2014 complaint.

Family of gunsmith killed in raid files $23M lawsuit against Toronto police board

The family of a renowned gunsmith who died after officers raided his workshop is suing the Toronto Police Service for $23 million, alleging the"unlawful" act led to Rodger Kotanko's "wrongful death."

The statement of claim filed Tuesday morning at Simcoe Superior Court names five "John Doe" officers, Insp. Norman Proctor, Chief James Ramer and the Toronto Police Services Board for their involvement in the Nov. 3 raid at Kotanko's workshop in Norfolk County, Ont.

CBC Hamilton previously reported that a TPS officer shot the 70-year-old while executing a search warrant.

Kotanko is survived by his wife, Xueqin Mai (also known as Jessie), daughter Minying, and sons Colton and Conner.

His family, including his wife, who was home when police arrived, raised questions about how the raid took place and why they never received or saw a search warrant until over a month later.

"No amount of money can ever make up for the loss of Rodger, but a $23-million lawsuit makes a statement," Michael Smitiuch, the family's lawyer, told CBC Hamilton on Monday.

"It makes a statement that his life mattered, what happened to him is unacceptable, and it also makes a statement as to the horrendous and significant losses his family have suffered."

TPS told CBC Hamilton Tuesday it received the statement of claim and couldn't comment because of the legal proceedings and ongoing investigation by the Special Investigations Unit (SIU).

The courthouse said Tuesday that no statement of defence has yet been filed.

The claims haven't been proven in court and CBC has not seen search warrant documents. ... -1.6317788

‘They’re Shooting Live Bullets at Us’: Guards Keep Firing Guns at Edmonton’s Federal Prison

Tensions are mounting in one of Canada’s most dysfunctional federal prisons after corrections officers fired their service weapons for the second time in a matter of weeks.

Since reporting on a chaotic brawl that sent two inmates to hospital and wounded a third, VICE World News has been contacted by a number of inmates, corrections officers, and advocates to raise the alarm on worsening conditions inside the maximum-security Edmonton Institution. Multiple sources described the situation as a powder keg, with warnings that violence could flare if things don’t improve.

According to those sources, a fight broke out between two inmates on Jan. 8. After verbal warnings, officers intervened by firing multiple rounds from their carbine rifles—sources estimate that between four and seven rounds were fired. While the Correctional Service, Canadian’s federal prison agency, confirmed that “warning shots” were fired, one corrections officer, speaking under condition of anonymity, claimed one round was aimed at the inmate who instigated the fight, but it missed.

. . .

On Thursday, another shooting happened after an inmate was taken off suicide watch and returned to his cell, on the same unit where the shooting had taken place less than two weeks earlier. Within 10 minutes of him returning to general population, the inmate attacked someone in the unit, multiple sources say—it’s unclear if they attacked a guard or another inmate.

“When that happened, they started shooting,” said an inmate who was sitting in a nearby cell. “They’re shooting live bullets right at us,” he said. Given that the area is “wall-to-wall metal,” he said, the risk of a ricochet is very real.

He said officers fired two live rounds, then dispatched tear gas. There were no reported injuries as a result of the shooting.

The Correctional Service confirmed to VICE World News that officers fired their weapons again on Jan. 21. They wrote in an email that the officers tried to resolve the conflict “using the most reasonable interventions” and that “munitions are a last resort when someone’s life may be threatened.”

The Service would not confirm how many rounds were fired in either incident. ... d-shooting
