Only in Canada you say? Pity.

Some things have happened this last week I thought you should be aware of.

First, the natives are restless in Caledonia.  Not the Six Nations idiots, I mean the people who live in Caledonia.  Seems that illegal smoke shops (as in more than one) have been springing up along Highway Six in the occupied Douglas Creek Estates confusion zone.  People in Caledonia don't like it because its illegal, blocks traffic and is an eyesore.  December 1st they had a  demonstration in front of one.  Not the first time residents have staged a demonstration, but it IS the first time 200 OPP cops didn't show up.  This time they sent eight (8).  Predictably, the noble Six Nations Protesters punched out fat, diabetic old Gary McHale who frankly looks about as dangerous as a fire hydrant. 

The other casualty happened when the OPP tackled and seriously injured a resident with a video camera.  You know, before he captured somebody doing something they shouldn't be, like Indians shoving and hitting the cops while the cops ignored them and faced the residents who were NOT shoving and/or hitting anyone.  But there's still video of Gary McHale getting attacked from behind though.  Walking away too.  That's not going to play well in court I bet, when the noble Six Nations Protesters try to get McHale charged with assault.  Love those camcorders.  OPP Chief Fantino was rumored to be blaming McHale for assaulting Clyde Powless's fist with his face, Gary says he's going to cooperate only with the RCMP, not the OPP.  Good luck with that, Gary.

Second, last week Toronto had its 80th murder.  That's getting near a new Hogtown record I think.  The record may be broken this year, I heard they found a 7/11 attendant stabbed to death this morning.  On the bright side, more victims were bludgeoned and/or hacked to death compared to 2005.  According to the mayor, "Fearless Leader" Dave Miller, that's a cause for celebration.

So things are not looking great in Ontario, "Yours To Duck and Cover", from a policing standpoint.  What then are the Great Minds in Queens Park doing about this?  Its a beauty, believe me.  Check it out:

The provincial gun regulator will begin inspecting the homes of older gun owners in Toronto to ensure they are storing their firearms safely, an initiative one sporting association said amounts to "harassing" seniors.  Ontario's Chief Firearms Office says it is responding to concerns raised by Toronto police, which have in the past been called to the homes of gun owners who had either died or been hospitalized and did not have their registered firearms securely stored.

Yep.  Going to go check up on Grandma and Grandpa, make sure them eeeevile shootin' irons ain't lying around where they could jump up and stab a convenience store clerk.  That's what Metro police are going to be doing for the next little while.  Can't be too careful about them old geezers, they're friggin' dangerous.

Thought you'd like to know, eh?

When I was a kid, I used to watch wrestling on TV and would get all pissed off when the ref was being distracted and the "bad guy" would use a "foriegn object" on the good guy and eventually win the match. I couldn't beleive that some other official wouldn't step in and disquallify the bad guy. I mean, the camera caught it, I saw it and so did everyone else yet nobody stepped in to make things right.
Well this is the same way I feel about what happened in Caledonia on 01 Dec. and has been going on for some time. Why can't a real, honest-to-goodness official step in and make things right. Instead we get a loud mouthed graduate from the Mussolini School of Leadership threatening to bring justice down on the evil-doing protesters. Yes Mr. Fantino, the taxpayers of Ontario should be outraged, that our hard earned money goes to supporting a self serving egomaniac like you.

Watched the videos on McHale's site....he has both the OPPs and the renegades dead to rights...if Powless doesn't get charged and punished, the whole system is fucked.

If that's the case, you may as well use your deed for rolling illegal smokes....move to Alberta, they don't put up with this crap there.

I'd like to blame Fantino. It'd be easy, and his public comments have been an outrage.


The thing about cops is, they follow orders. Especially these days, as you can tell from the video with the police facing -away- from the guys throwing the punches. I wonder what you have to threaten a cop with to make him take punches to the back of his head, with no back-up coming?

Fantino follows orders too, he doesn't make these decisions himself. No officer willingly puts his men in that kind of meat grinder, its bad leadership and leads to a short career as top cop.

I wonder what they had to threaten him with, and who's doing the threatening?

Thanks for some great commentary Phantom. It's much appreciated, especially since the media can't be trusted to tell the truth. What happened in Caledonia was an outrage. Today, Gary was charged, along with Clyde Powless.

I hope you won't mind if I leave a couple of links to VoC stories that will help your readers understand just how bad it was.

First, though, let me comment on 'following orders.' I'm ex-military and served a tour on a UN peacekeeping mission. We received training about our duty to disobey an illegal order. I have written about this more in a post directed at helping OPP officers understand us and their obligation not to allow themselves to be used as pawns. Here's the link:

Here are some links to other stories about Dec 1st:

Powless did get charged. McHale charged with mischief. A joke right there. The funny part in this whole nonsense, McHale, according to Vandermass's website, is not allowed contact with Vandermass or Jeff Parkinson. Now if Fantino could only keep those 3 Stooges away things might return to normal.
