Re: “Mannerless Transit Rider

What does socialism have to do with manners??? If the father had a British accent, you'd realize that the Conservatives have been in power in the UK for many years now. The Harper cronies have been in power in Canada for 2 terms now as well!

Re: “We Want Something for Nothing Generation

Thomas Jefferson was one smart man:

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a moneyed aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

Re: “Fuck You, Officer

The majority of stop signs are useless. What should be put in place is a small roundabout. That way no need to stop , just slow down, and go. If nobody is there and you're the only one, why the need to stop? This seems way more logical & safer since it eliminates any chances of a t-bone collision or people turning left on motorcyclists & pedestrians. But logic & sense don't always prevail with politicians.

So what if the cop had to stand out in the rain? That doesn't give him the right to be rude to you and to threaten you. He's being paid to do a job which involves interacting with the general public. Not some office job where he never sees bad weather and never deals with anyone else. With his attitude, you should have took as long as you wanted, fiddled around and made them stand there for at least 5 minutes.

If he wanted to be treated nicely, and with respect, he should do the same to the general public that he comes into contact with.

Re: “Occupy Toronto Market Exchange

The Wall Street Protestors have been peacefully protesting, so I don't know where you get the idea that they're running amok, wreaking havoc and looting like a bunch of hockey sore losers. So far the only violence unleashed has been that of the NYPD:

Explain why innocent people, standing on a sidewalk were maced? Who is inciting violence here? What happened to the 1st amendment of the US Constitution (Protects the freedom of religion, speech, and the press, as well as the right to assemble and petition the government)? These people are not causing any damage or harm, so why are the police being so heavy handed and trying to prevent people from doing something that they are by law allowed to do?

Explain why, with all the charter violations and abuses that the police took during the G20 summit, that 90% of the charges were dismissed? Why is it that none of the violent anarchists were never caught or arrested, even though the police were on scene when the crimes were committed?

Why is it that with all the pictures & videos of the destruction that took place in Vancouver, more charges haven't been laid? Seems like the message the police are sending is that if you stand up for your rights and protest, they will impose martial law on you. But if you want to loot & cause violence, they won't do anything about it.

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -- Benjamin Franklin

Re: “Over-Zealous Police Officer

The cop baited you and you fell for it. From your description, you only pretended to pound on the sign, so it was obvious that the cop was looking for an excuse to to have you thrown in the drunk tank. You should have just kept walking and ignored the cop.

If you were charged with anything, fight it in court. You didn't do anything illegal, and as GV stated, get the officer to describe the situation. What will come out in court is that they drove by you 6 times!! Why did they have to do that? You weren't far away, so they could have just pull over and observed you from a distance. There was no need to drive by you that many times.

Don't even get me started on the NYPD. Did anyone watch 60 Minutes to hear the NYPD Police Chief state that they're bigger than the FBI, that they don't trust he Federal Government to fight terrorism, and that they have the means to take down planes if deemed a terrorist threat?? They even send investigators world wide, to investigate and follow leads which they believe are terrorism related. With the increase in powers they were given, they even worked with the CIA to spy on domestic Americans. Clearly in violation of laws that were passed in the 1970's:

By law, the CIA is specifically prohibited from collecting foreign intelligence concerning the domestic activities of US citizens. Its mission is to collect information related to foreign intelligence and foreign counterintelligence. By direction of the president in Executive Order 12333 of 1981 and in accordance with procedures approved by the Attorney General, the CIA is restricted in the collection of intelligence information directed against US citizens.

People need to step up and stop these entities from stripping people of their Constitutional and Charter Rights. Ever since 9/11, these abuses have increased and none of these new powers have been revoked. Be careful what you do/say and always make sure it's being recorded. The police cannot order you to stop recording as you are in public and they are public servants, hence they cannot have expectation of privacy. They cannot order you to show your videos or pictures, nor can they take your equipment, or delete or order you to delete your pictures/videos. But since 9/11, they believe that they can and use the "war on terrorism" excuse to claim that they can.

Here are some clear violations and abuses that will open your eyes to what is happening and how your freedoms are slowly being taken from you.

Re: “Oh Canada

Really, you don't think that the violation of charter rights is a big deal? What kind of slippery slope are you allowing them to go down if you don't stand up for your rights. When and where does it all stop? Take a bit here, take a bit there and next thing you know it's the Brown Shirts of Nazi Germany all over again.

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom states:

Search or seizure

8. Everyone has the right to be secure against unreasonable search or seizure.

Detention or imprisonment

9. Everyone has the right not to be arbitrarily detained or imprisoned.

Arrest or detention

10. Everyone has the right on arrest or detention

(a) to be informed promptly of the reasons therefor;

(b) to retain and instruct counsel without delay and to be informed of that right; and

(c) to have the validity of the detention determined by way of habeas corpus and to be released if the detention is not lawful.


Fundamental Freedoms

2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:

(a) freedom of conscience and religion;

(b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;

(c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and

(d) freedom of association.


You are by law, guaranteed the freedom of peaceful assembly, and protected against unreasonable search & seizure. Everyone has the right not to be arbitrarily detained or imprisoned.

So, explain why the police raided the U of T campus to arrest protestors who were all sleeping in a dorm? Violent protestors who are sleeping???? What about the The "violent dispersal of protesters" at the designated G20 protest site at Queen's Park? The absence of police when acts of vandalism were occurring? The mass arrests and no access to legal counsel?

Why are people being arrested when they are peacefully protesting? Why did the police not do anything while the vandalism was occurring? Why did they mass arrest everybody they saw, regardless?

As you can see, major violations occurred. What's to stop HPD from pulling the same routine next time there is a protest down at City Hall if you're not going to care about these kinds of abuses of power?

The one thing you're missing in all of this is that the Harper Party spent over $1 Billion on this stupid conference!!!!! The things that took place in Nazi Germany & Stalin's Soviet Republic did not take place overnight. They were slowly implemented over the course of the years. It's slowly happening now if you step back and take a look at how they've been eroded:

http://www.inquisitr.com/135125/canadian-i…

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/stor…

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/story/2009/0…

The last one deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of Canada, yet the Harper Cons argued that they're needed for national security.

On top of all the links I've provided, tack on the new Omnibus Crime Bill. So, you think none of this has any affect on you? You seriously have no problem with the violation of charter rights of others as long as it's not your's? If ever Canada becomes another police state like the USA or others, then you sir, are to blame as much as those who allowed it to take place.

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
