From the story about the dog-walking police officer. On Chek news they showed that the city or CRD has a dog pound over in that area. I think she was walking a dog from there.

Five Arrested After Chief Manak Assaulted At Chantel Moore Memorial

 

Date: Saturday, September 18th, 2021 - File: #21-38259

 

Victoria, BC – Five people have been arrested after Chief Manak was assaulted at a memorial event at the B.C. Legislature today.

 

Just after 2 p.m. a female approached Chief Manak from behind while he was attending a memorial event honouring Chantel Moore at the B.C. Legislature. The woman assaulted Chief Manak after a blanketing ceremony by pouring a liquid on him. She then moved away from the area. Chief Manak, who was attending the memorial at the invitation of Chantel Moore’s mother, was not physically harmed. The assault was captured on video.

 

Officers in the area then approached the suspect. At that time a group surrounded the suspect and then surrounded officers. Five people were taken into custody.

 

Those who were involved are not believed to have been involved in organizing the Chantel Moore memorial event.

 

There were no injuries.

 

This file is still under investigation. If you have information about this incident and have not yet spoken with officers, please call our Report Desk at (250) 995-7654 extension 1.

Innocent folks (including old ladies and children) get violently assaulted in Victoria every single day.

Manak is just another downtown Victoria stat ... and tomorrow it will be somebody else.

 

Such is Victoria in 2021.

Yesterday’s assault on  @ChiefManak was planned in advance. They even had the Beacon-Hill-Park-Is-Safe Internet smear machine ready to go to cast aspersions on @vicpdcanada in the immediate aftermath. We’re being played. All of us. #elxn44 #bcpoli #yyj  https://twitter.com/...597381008326658

I am not being played. he should speak for himself.

some liquid on a cop - the chief - is not a big deal. last night in greater Victoria dozens of people were really assaulted. that’s more real.


At least Jamie Graham was tough. Manak says today he is “still processing” it. grow some balls.

No kidding!

This is almost unbelievable, in the past month we've had a vicious assault on a child, and another on an old lady, and numerous more assaults (and murders) perpetrated on "regular" folks ... Manak gets a bit of water on him and suddenly it's a huge press story, with folks worrying about his mental and physical well being?

 

What a load.

 

Honestly, I could not care about the Manak water incident any less than I do ... but I will continue to care deeply about the city I was born in 64 years ago turning into a lawless sewer ... a "murder city" created and supported by Mayor and Council.

 

VicPD needs to get out there and start cracking some heads all over town ... at least if these pink haired losers, thieves, drug addicts and well heeled "street people" don't respect the VicPD ... they can certainly learn to fear them.

Until you know it’s water, it could be anything.

I’d be shaken up. So would any of you.

While I am no particular fan of Chief Manak, he, like all of us, deserves to feel safe when out in public, especially in attendance at a memorial. That so many choose to blame the victim just goes to show how far we have fallen as a society and how the powers that be simply accept the degradation of our community as no big deal.  :(

nobody blamed the victim.

some of us thought the crime paled though in comparison to the dozens of people that were assaulted with actual harm coming to them this past weekend.

guy gets benign liquid spilled on him - 5 immediate arrests.

statute is torn down by angry mob on the one day of the year the police have both cameras and a huge presence at the harbour. no arrests 2 months later.

no wonder people are emboldened.

Having lived downtown during the "eventful" VicPD reigns of Paul, Jamie and Frank - I'm just fine with Del.

Suggesting Chief Manak needs to "grow some balls" is victim blaming. He has every right to be upset with what happened to him. His assault is no more nor any less concerning than any others that have happened recently. The CoV clearly has a crime problem, but neither the blame nor the solution should rest entirely on the shoulders of the VicPD. Many others have had a hand in creating the mess we see today, especially local, provincial and federal lawmakers.

no blame whatsoever. but I think he should shake it off, say I’m a grown man and a career cop, some liquid won’t hurt me. but we are still going to go after those responsible. so it doesn’t happen again to an individual with lesser fortitude.


cops need to be tough if they are to command respect. with a bit of fear. there is zero indication that “compassionate” community policing reduces crime anywhere.

They also need to appear to be human to earn respect. I have compassion for victims of crime. This is entirely separate from "compassionate policing" policies.

also consider at the time the incident happened they did not know the liquid was water, it could have been any form of liquid.. i think we need to take out the context that in the end it was "just water" and consider the current state of the city and the hate for the police, tie that into a random unknown hot liquid being thrown directed at a person.. it is not something to be taken lightly

Apparently it was iced tea. And all 5 arrested were young natives. This prompted a FTP protest in front of the police station demanding the release of indigenous youth…

A File Transfer Protocol protest?
