Saturday Morning Confusion about cops arresting other cops!
As you well know, your faithful reporter has commented now and again on the conduct of cops, and how they view the performance of their "coply" duties when they're out on the job.
This article explains a lot about the mindset of the police when they went to arrest one of their own on a fraud charge. (Please bear in mind that "fraud" is not considered a "violent" crime!)
SYDNEY, N.S. -- The union that represents a Cape Breton police officer charged with identity fraud is questioning whether appropriate force was used during his arrest.
The Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union says the officer, a 15-year member of the Cape Breton police force, was arrested early Wednesday morning at his home.
President Joan Jessome says the officer, his wife and his three young children awoke to find a team of RCMP officers, some armed with carbine assault rifles, inside their home.
She says it seems excessive to have armed officers "storm" a house to retrieve a computer.
Jessome also questioned why police couldn't have arrested him when he was scheduled to go into work the next day.
Here we come to the first reason this whole thing is such a cluster-fuck from the get-go! Why storm a fellow officers house at gunpoint when you could have arrested him quietly at work the next day? BECAUSE THAT WOULDN'T BE ANY FUN, KIDS! RCMP Const. Mark Skinner says police action during any search is based on a risk assessment. "In order to prevent injuries to all parties involved, police may use a number of options when we conduct a search," said Skinner. "In this case, actions of the RCMP were consistent with this approach." (YA, RIGHT!)
The charges against the 39-year-old man involve fraudulently impersonating another person. RCMP say during his arrest, investigators seized electronic devices and a computer from a police-owned vehicle.
The Mounties say the accused has been released from custody and will appear in Sydney provincial court Dec. 15.
The Cape Breton Regional Police has said the officer in question has been suspended with pay pending the outcome of the investigation.
Here we go with reason # two kids. Why was this cop released an hour later on his own recognizance and then sent home WITH PAY, while they tried to decide if they had enough evidence to convict the guy. WELL, BECAUSE HE'S A COP FOLKS, AND BESIDES, IT WAS A NON-VIOLENT CRIME TO BEGIN WITH.
(But then again, that doesn't explain the armed invasion and take-down in the guy's own house? Oh ya, I forgot ......., because it was FUN!)
You know that old saying about never taking a knife to a gunfight?
Well, I guess ya shouldn't take a bow and arrow either!
MONTCALM COUNTY, Mich. — A Michigan man was shot and killed by a state trooper after he struck an officer with a crossbow, according to Michigan State Police.
On Friday evening, a state trooper, a Montcalm County Sheriff's deputy and a Lakeview officer were serving a 40-year-old man with an arrest warrant at a home in Cato Township. While in the process of making the arrest, the suspect shot at the officers with a cross bow, striking the deputy.
The state trooper returned fire, striking the suspect at least once. The deputy was taken to Spectrum Health Butterworth Campus in Grand Rapids, Mich. The deputy is listed in stable condition. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.
AND SOMETIMES YA JUST CAN'T WIN FOR LOSING:
MONTREAL -- A trial for five Hell's Angels on murder and conspiracy charges ended abruptly Friday after the judge ordered a halt to the proceedings because the Crown dragged its feet in the disclosure of evidence.
The five men -- all members of the biker gang's Sherbrooke chapter -- were ordered released mid-trial by Quebec Superior Court Justice James Brunton.
Apparently there is going to be one "Hell" of a party at the biker gang's headquarters this weekend!
