The overnight story of an Edmonton Police Services officer shot and killed while executing a search warrant has gotten a lot of people talking. The fact that the infamous "freemen on the land" group is involved has gotten a lot of people's attention.
However, there's a far more sinister group that has a direct connection with the events of Monday night: the Greater Manchester Police (GMP)
If you haven't heard of the Greater Manchester Police force, it's (somewhat predictably) located in Manchester, UK. The problem is, pretty much every disgusting modern trend in "hate crime" policing can be led back to British policing, and the Greater Manchester Police have been in the thick of it. The GMP police chief constable, Sir Peter Fahy, is convinced that free speech is something that needs to be properly limited by civilian authorities so that police can properly prosecute people for condemning the faggot lifestyle. GMP also arrested a 14-year old girl for the crime of asking to not be lab partners with Muslim immigrants who couldn't speak English.
Codie said: "I asked the teacher could I change groups because I didn't understand them and she said I was being racist and started shouting at me."As Steyn writes it's ridiculous to believe that this should be "normal procedure".
A complaint was made and she was taken to a police station.
Her mother said her Codie's jewellery and shoelaces were removed, her fingerprints and DNA samples were taken and she was put in a cell.
The school said it wanted to ensure it had a caring and tolerant attitude to pupils of all ethnic backgrounds and it did not stand for racism in any form.
Greater Manchester Police said it took hate crime reports very seriously and its treatment of the teenager was in line with normal procedure.
What's "normal procedure" for Edmonton Police in dealing with this situation? How does it compare with the GMP normal procedures? Sadly, one person who could properly answer that is Daniel Woodall, the Edmonton officer shot and killed.
Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht held a news conference at midnight to confirm the death of Const. Daniel Woodall, a 35-year-old, eight-year veteran of the force who was recruited from Great Britain and used to serve with the Greater Manchester Police.Everybody pick up on that important bit of information? Woodall who was recruited from Great Britain and used to serve with the Greater Manchester Police also worked for the hate crimes unit. In other words, the ridiculous anti-liberty pathology that has infected police across Great Britain is the environment that Woodall festered in, before he was specifically recruited to bring it "across the pond" to Edmonton 2.0.
A 38-year-old officer, Sgt. Jason Harley, was shot in the lower back but was protected by his bullet-proof vest. Early Tuesday, Edmonton police said he had been released from hospital.
Woodall worked for the hate crimes unit.
The GMP has been busy making sure the "hate crimes" unit always has something to do. In April 2013 they announced that, despite having no legal authority to do so, GMP's hate crime division would begin tracking hate crimes against goth and emo kids. Naturally the article picks a couple instances of a physical assault to goad the public into accepting this, hoping you'll ignore stories like Codie Stott. Stott, by the way, was arrested while Daniel Woodall was with the GMP, though it doesn't seem like the two crossed paths: Woodall was based in Wythenshawe station, Stott was treated like a criminal for an "offensive" remark in Swinton. A cursory check for the activities of Wythenshawe Race and Hate Crimes Unit didn't turn up any specific cases, though it's hardly conclusive. Not all Manchester Police abuses are going to reference a specific station. For example, the 2003 incident where GMP logged a "hate crimes" investigation when Christian Voice wrote in to complain about Manchester Police marching in the local Faggot Walk. Come to think of it, wasn't it about seven years ago that Edmonton Police Service (EPS) started walking in the #yegpooftermarch? Is this another of the despicable police practices imported from Greater Manchester?
Predictably, the Edmonton media and the public in general aren't in the mood to ask any such questions.
It's not just cowardly Stacey Brotzel who's quick to assign "Edmonton's finest" to a guy who transferred from a jurisdiction more interested in criminalizing dissent against the state's agenda than stopping real crimes, who worked for a division of EPS more interested in charging a guy who put up signs critical of the sodomite agenda than, say, catching corrupt members of their own force. The EPS method of attacking their opponents and refusing to take responsibility for their actions has largely paid off: can you imagine Edmonton's media daring to take this photo ever again? Instead, very little critical reporting goes into Edmonton Police practices unless they specifically involve the media, then they're all over it. In fact, look what Simons has to say about EPS only two short weeks ago:You shouldn't jump to conclusions. RT @staceybrotzel #yeg lost one of it's finest last night. #EPSstrong— FACLC (@FACLC) June 9, 2015
We only need to go to Baltimore, to Ferguson, to Cleveland, to see what happens when the social contract corrodes, when people start to lose confidence in their police..Now look at what Simons has to say about Edmonton Police today...
The hate crimes unit does such important work. I'm sure many communities who were helped by Daniel Woodall & his team also grieving today.— Paula Simons (@Paulatics) June 9, 2015
So what changed? What changed is that the left-wing media is actively interested in "hate speech" being criminalized, as they always aim to be the be-all and end-all of information flow in society. They can't do that if people who speak out against their lies are allowed a voice, so they are quick to leap to the defense of those like Daniel Woodall and Jason Harley, despite any evidence to support these man executing a warrant.
The warrant, we're told by the same EPS that even their media defenders usually point out aren't very forthcoming in the details, was for criminal harassment. Why, you ask, was the "hate crimes" unit involved? What was Norman Raddatz's "hate crime"? The only legal document that has yet been posted is a Edmonton bylaw citation under the "Nuisance on Land", a rather ridiculous bylaw provision that is basically a way for neighbours to rat on each other and use the power of the law to solve sad little annoying conflicts between them.
When a complaint comes in, the process includes a warning, followed by a ticket and finally some kind of compliance order that could involve city staff or contractors entering a property and remedying the situation.Looks to be doing a bang up job, doesn't it? Is this really a valid municipal government function? (Answer: nope)
Despite the 90 per cent compliance rate, those who don't co-operate create up to 3,000 files a year. But thanks to a new approach over the past few years, the numbers remain manageable in a growing city.
"These problems are not necessarily what they look like on the surface. We're dealing with people who might have mental illness, we're dealing with people who are hoarders or they're seniors or there's a whole litany of things," said Courtoreille, adding more focus is now put on dealing with underlying issues of a bylaw infraction rather than the symptoms that incite complaints.
From what can be determined, the timeline works something like this:
February, 2014: Raddatz "bullied" somebody. Edmonton pigs opened a "hate crime" file on him
mid-October, 2014: Royal Bank of Canada foreclosed on Raddatz's bungalow and sued him
October 27, 2014: Ryan Colton filed a complaint against Raddatz for a messy yard
February 23, 2015: Raddatz misses his court appearance, a judge signs off on an arrest warrant
October 2014 - June 2015: Raddatz "harasses" somebody, probably one of the neighbours who complained about him
June 2015: Raddatz's company North Summit Mechanical was deregistered due to a filing discrpeancy
June 8 2015: Edmonton Police try to talk with Raddatz but he won't let them in. They request a "Feeney" warrant and try to force their way into his home. A firefight ensues, Woodall killed and Harley was injured
June 9 2015, morning: Edmonton Police claim they were executing a warrant for criminal harassment related to his "hate crime". They say Norman Raddatz found dead in the basement.
June 9 2015, afternoon: The Edmonton Journal reports that Raddatz showed no criminal record, contradicting an earlier statement by Edmonton Police Chief Chief Rod Knecht that Raddatz "did not have a significant criminal record".
Police acting more like thought police than regular police, and city officials harassing homeowners. That's Woodall's modern-day Britain to a tee. The open questions remain: what was Raddatz's "hate crime"? Was this what drove officers to his door? And finally, will EPS learn from this experience and shut down the "hate crimes" unit?
Already one man has tried to defend himself from state aggression -- possibly due to government cracking down on his free speech -- and one of the more thuggish state enforcers has paid the price. Will another have to pay the price next time? Or will Edmonton Police stop their ridiculous policy of sending officers to talk to "bullies" who were mean to somebody? Much like GMP with their "emo kids" policy, Edmonton's "hate crimes" unit is proving Parkinson's Law day in, day out: they always expand their caseload, and it seems Raddatz was merely the latest target in their ever-expanding quest to change your opinions to match the SJW-class.
We don't know if Raddatz is a hero or a victim (or, more likely, some of Column A and some of Column B), but based on what EPS has released to date and based on what disgusting GMP actions Woodall imported into the 100% corrupt Edmonton Police Service, odds are when it comes time to build a statue to the hero who lost his life it won't be the EPS "hate crimes" investigator who was a victim of his own ill-advised policies.
