One sentence, three different words, one of which is strikingly different than the other (bloody vs. dead).

The entire coverage is tarnished here. And what’s worse, is if you don’t watch the feed for yourself down at the courthouse you have no idea who’s got it wrong and whose got it ...very wrong ...since I suspect neither organization has a 100% accuracy rate in the quotes identified in the post above.

one almost suspects bp and tc might compare notes before errors like that again show them up.

What we know for sure at this point is that OBPD mucked up the crime scene. The first officer on scene did not secure the crime scene and it sounds like they contaminated the crime scene (didn't wear booties, gloves, etc.).

a certain amount of contamination occurs when you are retrieving the man that’s injured and still alive and also checking on the deceased. and doing this all in an apartment with no lights. but investigators should be able to work backward from that.

and it’s not like there are an unknown number of potential suspects. it’s possible though they should have approached that aspect of the case with a more open mind. as the first days of the case indicated they thought they had it all solved in the first 4 hours.

Particularly when the ex arrived at the police station concerned that something might have happened to her children under their father’s care.

You can see how police sent to a home to check on the well-being of two children who were with their father, a father who the mother was concerned had some degree of issues, would consider the father a suspect.

Why is it OK to blame the victim for auto crimes?

Because the budget can’t afford any new officers at the moment and graphic design is relatively cheaper.

Those are all sound tips, but I seriously doubt that driver behavior has recently changed in any of those areas. So some other factor would appear to be responsible for the dramatic increase in auto-related crime over the last few years. I'm more interested in hearing what the police are doing to identify and address that issue. 

 

Instead of telling people not to park in dangerous areas, maybe make those areas less dangerous. Just a thought.

it’s starting to appear that on the Christmas Day of the oak bay murders there were only two police officers on shift.

No. There was at least 3 officers on duty as referenced in a TC article. Sgt. Martin, Cst. Ulanowski and Cst. Chanin.

🚔Region-Wide Drug Trafficker Arrested🚔

Victoria BC – More than $30,000 worth of drugs and a vehicle was seized after a month-long investigation with links to organized crime in the Lower Mainland.

In March, investigators from our Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) began an investigation into a woman who was allegedly trafficking drugs throughout the CRD. On April 5th VicPD officers arrested the woman in the 2800-block of Jacklin Road in Langford. With the assistance of the West Shore RCMP, officers subsequently executed a search warrant and located evidence consistent with drug trafficking including one thousand individually pre-packaged drugs. The drugs are believed to be fentanyl, methamphetamine and cocaine with an approximate street value of $30,000.

Investigators believe that the drugs are linked to organized crime in the Lower Mainland. Officers released the woman on a Promise to Appear and are recommending charges of Possession for the Purposes of Trafficking and Driving While Prohibited. The vehicle will be forwarded to civil forfeiture.

Road rage machete incident at Costco today around 1 pm. Apparently 1 woman stole a parking spot from another woman, they started to argue and one of the women pulled out a machete. Crazy. Stew won't be happy!

Who would go to a Costco at 1pm? And expect a parking spot?

it's good to see the women getting into the drug dealing and machete wielding in the last two posts though.

I think the incident happened on Sunday?

But yeah, the machete woman has been identified by police. It’s only a matter of time before she’s apprehended.

Just goes to show that the best road rage response is to just keep moving.
