...a VicPD officer was on special duty assignment in the 900-block of Pandora Avenue to assist City of Victoria Bylaw staff...

Why wasn't a social worker sent to assist bylaw staff?

Or a Together Victoria council member?  They're public safety experts...

I’m pretty sure I’m not, but ok :)

Best we can hope for is a confession. But that has little to do with police tech advancements.

I think the premise is always that a cold case could contain evidence which, although initially overlooked or declared irrelevant ... might then be seen 20 years later in a "new" light.

It's probably not important as to whether that "new" light is a more contemporary method of examining evidence, or simply an attentive Officer noticing something 2 decades later that was initially not recognized as being important.

 

Regardless, plenty of cold cases are solved in North America every year ... and those cold cases are solved while much more contemporary cases are still ongoing and being investigated.

A witness who declined to give his name said he saw a black sedan sideswipe a police vehicle, before careening into a dumpster on the road, hitting it hard enough to move it.

The witness said officers moved in to arrest the driver, and he saw one officer on the ground, pinned by the car. He and others tried to lift the vehicle off the officer before being removed from the scene, he said.

odd wording. Who or what was “removed from the scene”?

Chief Manak Statement | Condemning The Continuing Violence After Officer Struck By Vehicle

 

Victoria, BC – Yesterday, a VicPD officer was struck by a vehicle while assisting City of Victoria Bylaw staff in the 900-block of Pandora Avenue.  The officer was sent to hospital with serious, but thankfully non-life-threatening injuries.  He is now recovering at home with his family, and we are grateful for the outpouring of support which we have received from across the community.

 

The officer who was injured yesterday is a 10-year-member of VicPD.  He has served Victoria and Esquimalt as a front-line officer, and previously as a member of the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team for many years with distinction.  He is well respected throughout our community for his compassion and understanding and has forged personal connections with many of those experiencing homelessness and mental illness.  He is one of many here at VicPD who serve this community with great pride.

 

I am deeply concerned with the severity and volume of violent crime in our community which is impacting the very people whose duty it is to uphold the law and keep every one of us safe.  Recently, we have seen several officers – both on-duty and off-duty – violently assaulted.  These attacks have a direct impact on the number of officers that can show up to work to keep our community safe and, equally importantly, the health and wellbeing of police officers who give so much of themselves in service to our community. 

 

I worry about the human toll that these attacks continue to have on our officers. 

 

This is not sustainable.

 

I condemn the alarming level of violence in our community and ask that we all reflect on what makes us a safer community together. The current climate is not acceptable, and should not be acceptable. Anti-police sentiment, disregard for law and order, and disrespect for authority is not a solution.  Working together, understanding that police strive to help and serve our community, and recognizing that we must take steps to address this violence together is the only path forward.

the city of Victoria invited more losers per capita into town than any other city in North America. What did the police expect?

And Del Manak and VicPD were there all along. I remember Manak inviting violent folks from the tent city to his office for one on one friendly chats … not once have I heard him speak out against the city policies and the mounting crime against the residents of the city… so only now that it’s impacting his officers he decides to speak up?

Possibly city council policies that have for years encouraged an influx of unhoused people to concentrate in a small area, as well as telegraphing their anti-police views.

Chance Kenton Nichol has agreed to remain in custody

 

So what would have happened if he didn't "agree" to be retained? Why was he asked in the first place?

2015:

 

 

 

A second man has been arrested in connection with a Nanaimo liquor store robbery in which three masked men held up the Terminal Park store armed with a shotgun and pepper spray.

 

Chance Kenton Nichol, a 21-year-old Nanaimo man, was arrested Wednesday. He is charged with robbery and intent to commit an indictable offence while having his face masked, said Nanaimo RCMP spokesman Const. Gary O’Brien.
