Black Lives Matter a welcome force for change: DiManno

20 Avril 2016

Black lives matter, of course they do. It shouldn’t have taken a worldwide movement to accentuate the fact that blacks are disproportionately killed, over-policed and racially profiled.

The crime is that it should have to be said at all, over and over again.

There’s not much for Canadians to feel smug about, merely because the death tables of blacks killed by law enforcement pale, even in ratio terms, compared to the U.S. According to a Washington Post analysis of data — 986 slain by law enforcement in total last year — blacks were killed at three times the rate of whites, and 40 per cent of them were unarmed when confronted by cops.

Attorney General has yet to read SIU report on Loku shooting — let alone make it public

20 Avril 2016

A month after the Special Investigations Unit cleared the Toronto police officer who shot and killed Andrew Loku, the attorney general says she has not yet read the secret report that details how that decision was made.

Madeleine Meilleur said her chief of staff, Shane Gonsalves, has a copy and that she will obtain it and read it. But asked Monday if she could make the report public afterwards, she said: “You know what, I don’t think so.”

RCMP misconduct cases jump 158% in single year

20 Avril 2016

The number of misconduct investigations the RCMP launched into their own staff went up by 158 per cent in 2015 over the previous year, leaving 56 officers facing possible dismissal over allegations of serious misconduct.

Details of the development are contained in a document posted to the RCMP website called Results and Respect in the RCMP Workplace.

The document appears to be a means of updating the public on how the national police force has followed through on the findings and recommendations from the Mounties' Gender-Based Assessment and Gender and Respect Action Plan, in 2012 and 2013 respectively.

À qui veut bien l’entendre

20 Avril 2016

Un soir d’octobre, deux jeunes ont présenté une pétition au conseil d’arrondissement de Montréal-Nord. Tous deux avaient eu des démêlés avec la justice. Tous deux avaient vu des amis mourir durant l’été.

Le libellé de leur pétition se lisait comme suit :

« À qui veut bien l’entendre :

Nous, jeunes résidents du secteur Nord-Est de Montréal-Nord, désirons travailler et sortir de la rue pour notre bien-être et celui de la collectivité. Nous souhaitons seulement avoir accès à des emplois avec salaires et conditions respectables. MERCI ! »

SIU’s creation came amidst racially-charged atmosphere

19 Avril 2016

“When a police shooting results in a fatality, an investigation into the incident is critical to ensure that the law and policy on the use of deadly force is not only complied with, but so seen by the public.” — Report from the Task Force on Race Relations and Policing, which led to the creation of the SIU

Black men had been shot dead by police, the public was furious, and the collective confidence in police oversight was at an all-time low.

The year could have been 2016, with protesters camped outside police headquarters, demanding justice for Andrew Loku and others shot dead by police and decrying the lack of transparency, while Toronto city council asks the province for a review of the police watchdog.

Montreal police officers suspended for 'fraternizing' with tipsy women in patrol car

19 Avril 2016

Two Montreal police officers caught with tipsy young women in their cruiser outside a bar have been suspended, almost two years after photos and a video of the incident went viral.

One of the photos appeared to show one of the women sitting on an officer’s lap. The short video appeared to show promiscuity, according to a Quebec Police Ethics Committee decision made public Monday.

One of the officers — Marc Berthiaume — was suspended for two days for unprofessional conduct. The second officer — Jason Richer — was suspended for nine days for unprofessional conduct and failing to give one of the women a breathalyzer test. The suspensions are without pay.
