3. yeah..

I know. No fight at all, cop kicks him and then a couple others join in, the first cop that kicked him was the worst one, he punched him repeatedly.

Thanx for the vid.. the letter e in Rivieres had an accent on it so it broke the link...the news story is also at the link I posted..

4. the audio on the news story says they

kicked and squeezed his testicles specifically.

When he surrenders they don't know if this guy has a gun(s) in his pants or on his person so it would seem safer for all involved for the police to simply cuff him and perform a physical search. Just blindly kicking him, especially in the waist area could have caused it to fire.

8. Ouch.

Poor fucker.. Hopefully they'll fire these city cops, but the QPP are the ones investigating.
The QPP also investigated here when one RCMP accidentally shot another RCMP when they were walking in the woods looking for someone in the dark. Never heard nothin about that yet..

5. Human Rights do not exist in Canada, the Charter is toilet paper...

This is probably far more common than Canadians like to believe. Rule of law? Not in Canada unfortunately. Do the research, we are so far behind other democracies in the West, in particular of areas of accountability that I do not even think we should be labelled a democracy anymore, I do not say this in jest. From access to justice (maybe the most important pillar of a democracy), to sweeping powers of the Canadian Stasi (CSIS and the RCMP), to a lack of concern for citizens rights a la the Charter. This mans beating is but a small sample of what is going on, every single night in this country....very rarely is anyone held accountable. It's akin to winning the lottery as to having accountability of the state.

I don't actually have a problem with police in uniform in general as they are accountable and identifiable. I have, however had the disgusting experience of being beaten by a plain clothes detective to the point of being rendered deaf in one ear. I was 17 at the time. I also had my pants pulled down and struck with a stick in my groin by the same detective; not with full force, but enough to make me yell and feel great pain. When I told the courts of my experience, the detective started at me in courts with that look of rage, and thus began a sage of 20+ years of being persecuted in Canada. I was a marked man.

Employment interference, the involvement of CSIS, being held at the border, passport confiscated...though I have no criminal record and was a stellar university student, and the absolute disregard for principles put forward in the Magna Carta and International Rights which we are signees to lead me to do what I would never have expected; I reached out to the International community, since I was receiving no assistance in Canada after years of effort.

I have attempted to get my story heard and make as many people aware of how this nation really operates. I did this well after exhausting EVERY domestic avenue one could list. Name a diplomatic channel and I have reached out to them. I had to take the RCMP and CSIS to court, and in a truly East German fashion they simply refused to even plead to my accusations and ignored my Motion for Disclosure (the dossiers and files on me),' instead, they simply put forward their own motion AFTER mine to have my initial Motion for Disclosure struck down.

So, it is horrible that this man was beaten, but he is lucky about one fact, he has a voice, he has received attention. Consider people like myself who have had to work extremely hard to have my story heard, and still there is very little interest from lawyers (since I have no money now) or anyone in the country who is willing to help. The best I have been able to do is have a file opened on me with the U.N and contacted major trading and political partners such as the U.S and England to make them aware of what this country really istands for. This does very little for me at the current moment in time, it is a last resort, sort of "I hope this creates some accountability for those who have destroyed me". I have contacted the highest levels of people in these foreign governments and even received responses, which is more than I can say for some domestic channels I have pursued.

I have heard the same argument. "Hey, be happy, at least you don't live in ___________" (insert name of current piss poor country or tyranny). Yet, what these people don't seem to understand is that MY Canada, is far different from THEIR Canada. Even as I have done alot to sacrifice both in school, public risk (I applied to the military in University before deciding not to pursue when I had to wait), charity work and getting out of my initial growing up in government housing.

The second most common one is "you must have done something wrong, something really bad". I agree, what else would 20+ years of persecution represent right? I must have been a war criminal to receive this treatment. So I say to those same people, "yes, than if I did I want to be in a courtroom, I want to see the so-called evidence, I want to understand WHY I have been persecuted the way a war criminal would be" There is always silence...people hate logic, instead feeling comfort in holding onto false ideals of how Canada works. People don't consider for a moment the eerie parallels between our system and those of nations have always been told were the evil empires...in my experience I see little difference. The only soapbox I stand on is that of truth, liars and those who exploit hate truth, so I will continue to speak it.

So, I hope this man gets some justice and I hope he doesn't ever turn to a life of crime in the future. I also hope that Canadians wake up from their stupor and start to demand accountability from all who are in positions of power in this once great nation, before we become a have-not from an economic and human rights standpoint, if we aren't there already...

11. Not my doing

Have no clue what happened or when, and no particular impulse to fix it.
