Caledonia Wakeup Call has the whole thing with more links than you can shake a stick at. I can't read these things, they just torque me off too badly.
The question arises though, what sane political leadership allows things like this to continue, when all it can do is damage their chances at re-election. Why the hell would they do this?
All along I've been assuming that Big Names are on the take, because this is billion dollar sized stuff going on here. But I might be wrong about that. Check it:
Early one morning, Sharon Abbott was delivering newspapers to homes in Toronto's west end. Police Sergeant Stephen Ruffino observed her car double-parked outside an apartment.She then proceeds to break a bunch of traffic laws and refuses to stop, so obviously the cop busts her. Duh. Now the fun begins:
Yeah, I always expect docility from the black people I meet. We learnt that in school along with wife beating and cow tipping.
Although the HRTO [Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario] found no "conscious" racism on Sgt. Ruffino's part, it nonetheless concluded his actions were motivated by a deep-seated prejudice ... of which he was apparently entirely unaware.
The Tribunal also stated, without substantiation, that white people in authority have "an expectation of docility and compliance" from black people they encounter.
Given that the HRTO is an official Ontario government outfit, I find I must re-examine my assumption of crime in high places and include the possibility that they are merely insane. Comprehensively barking mad. Whacko. Loopy. Three fries short of a Happy Meal.
Where's the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party? Why am I not seeing the Sterling Street bridge on fire in Conservative political ads every day? This lawsuit is a gift from the heavens. What the F%#& are you people doing, SLEEPING? Wake the hell up and smell your new majority brewing, morons!
