they hope it will deter. but they admit it’s the same group. so initial bust did not deter.

 

Well when your police chief publicly states that he is not interested in pursuing drug possession or dealing it sends a pretty strong message.

But just before 5:30 p.m., the RCMP called Lowrie.
 
Lowrie gave police the address and at 6 p.m. five police officers were standing in her sister’s driveway.

 

 

 

 

Fortunately, Lowrie video-recorded her interaction with the officers, said Teryn.

In a report to the Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles, a police officer alleged that Lowrie was slurring her words.

“Her speech is not slurred at all. The video shows that,” said Teryn.

 

 

 

 

The police report also indicates Lowrie did not make a second request to blow into the screening device, which Teryn said is not true, as the video shows.

“That’s a lie and we know it’s a lie because there’s video evidence to prove this and the video was submitted to Road Safety B.C. with all my written submissions,” said Teryn. “Lee very explicitly asks for a second test on the video.”

The police provided false evidence, she charged.

That’s why I don’t trust anyone.

 

The difference though, is that sworn police officers have taken an oath.

The disgusting truth is revealed when those officers who have taken that oath are discovered to have broken it ... usually many times over, and usually to the detriment of the citizens they've sworn the oath to protect.

 

It's disgusting, and it's commonplace.

Before I write off the police in this case I would like to see the video. I don't trust ambulance chasers any more than I do the cops.

« A man was approached by three people in the 500-block of Yates Street shortly after 7 p.m.

The group used pepper spray on him, and robbed him before running away. »

7PM in June is full day light, right downtown. That’s quite bold.

It's all too easy to resort to hyperbole when reading something like this, but incidents like this one are very much a New York in the 70's kind of crime ... the lowest of the low.

Wide open bodily assault and robbery in the bright sunshine, in the middle of downtown (not to mention almost the heart of the tourist zone).

 

With the COV Council completely ignoring these kinds of issues, it really does appear as if there is no real hope for the downtown core.

I'm down here every single day at work, and it's easy to get lulled into thinking everything is kind of "OK" ... and then you read this and realize that it's anything but.

Whoever stole patio furniture from a Nanaimo home this week says it won’t be given back until the owner pipes down.

“You won’t see your furniture until the parties stop,” says a note left behind. “You are too loud. If you are quiet you’ll get your crap back.”

I can appreciate being disturbed by noisy neighbours. Ours used to start up the music many a week night at about 3 am. All we could hear was boom boom boom. Finally after a call to the police and a shouting match with the guy, they toned it down, but from time to time they are still noisy.

BREAKING: VicPD has apprehended Brandon Wildman, according to individuals who say they were targeted by Wildman for AirBnB-related offences and who have been notified by the police of his apprehension.

Earlier this year police agencies in the Capital notified the public of Wildman’s alleged activities directed at short-term-rental operators who allege their units were damaged by Wildman, including some who say items from their suites were stolen.

Wildman operated under a number of pseudonyms when applying to rent suites, which made his identification and capture by police more difficult.

Do you think his last name played a role? I mean constantly being called a wild man has got to have an effect after a while?

VicPD has issued a quarterly report to council. It's in council's latest agenda: https://pub-victoria...ocumentId=40792

 

The highlights:

 

Significant staffing changes at the start of Q1 have resulted in the transfer (as a result of promotions) and loss (as a result of retirements, maternity, occupational stress injuries, etc.) of civilian and sworn staff. Approximately 50 percent of ISD is composed of new staff, including all supervisory positions, except two. This has created challenges due to a loss of knowledge and general experience. For example, new staff must learn ISD Business Rules, Major Case Management and disclosure standards, new reporting requirements, and other administrative components. Additionally, many of the staff require core training; however, are unable to attend due to staff shortage, or attend despite critically low staffing.

 

Currently, several officers are not operationally deployable to front line police duties for various reasons, including: physical and occupational stress injuries, pregnancy/maternity, and recruit training. The impact is felt across the Department. In 2018, Senior Management committed to fully staff the four Patrol Watches to address the shortages. This decision formed part of the rationale for the redeployment of the six officers from the School Liaison, Community Engagement, Community Services, and Intelligence Officer positions. This commitment has been unsustainable in 2018 and 2019. Patrol is currently 11.5 members short, with no obvious signs of improvement in the future absent specific action to address the shortage.

 

Despite the value of the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) program, which has been reiterated via tangible outcomes and preliminary research conducted by the University of Victoria, funding was denied for the ACT pilot project which funded two of the three ACT officer positions. Expansion from one to three officers in 2017 increased the capacity of ACT teams, resulting in an increase in referrals and acceptance of patients who presented with higher needs and/or had an increased propensity towards violence. The intensive supports provided by the teams allow individuals to thrive. For example, one ACT client is entering his seventh month at the Therapeutic Recovery Community and another has been there for three months.
