I’ve been holding off on discussing matters proceeding through the court, but the continuing abuse of process is becoming exceptionally disturbing.
Let’s start at the beginning. I’ve been saying for a while that the lawyer for the Hospital committed perjury. This was a mistake on my part. What he actually did is known as establishing a false pretense. He presented false information as fact and ran with it on a public record. This same lawyer also happens to be the Head Adjudicator for NL Human Rights. He’ll have to answer for his statements as they seem to violate the rules of candor a lawyer takes an oath to uphold.
Another interesting fact from my case was the layout of the court room. They positioned the screen that featured my legal aide lawyers, as well as my parents who were calling in, on the side of the defendant. From the judge’s point of view, I had no representation present and the hospital had five lawyers as well as my parents calling in one their side. How is a judge supposed to properly weigh facts in his mind if they’re all being presented as a literal one-sided argument? The screen for my lawyers and family should have been positioned on the other side of the court room. It was a kangaroo court from the first moment to the last. The audio record won’t show the discrepancy, but there were plenty of witnesses.
Moving on to the uttering threats charge, the charges were dismissed for lack of an actual threat. For those of you with an understanding of computer logic statements, it amounted to an ‘If, then’ statement. I got the idea from an old common law case. Someone had placed his hand on his sword and said something along the lines of “I’d run you through right now IF not for that fact that the justice is in town.” The conditional ‘if’ in the statement defeated the charge of uttering threats by not actually being a threat. I found this out through wikipedia while researching a similar matter I had brought before me earlier in the year. The RCMP actually realized this during their investigation prior to the search warrant being issued, but they chose to proceed anyways.
At this point, it becomes a matter of a negligent investigation by the RCMP and RNC and an abuse of process by the Crown attorney who authorized my initial week long detainment. They saw fit to press a justice for the subsequent search warrant that led to the arrest of my wife and the seizure of all my research which still hasn’t been returned.
Despite the fact that the charges have been terminated, the RCMP are continuing to detain my research devices and say they’ll continue to request detention orders until the cultivation charges are resolved, despite the devices having no immediate relevance to the matter.
On what grounds can they keep these devices and deny me access to my business and research? The search warrant that brought them into my home had no legal and lawful framework. They may have been operating on good faith, but they also have a duty to determine if a crime has actually been committed. Otherwise they stalked me for issuing an idle non-threat. They just didn’t understand what constitutes a threat legally. Should have called a lawyer first. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.
Even if they were operating in good faith, the fact that I’d been detained and missed my Charter Challenge for no lawful reason still hasn’t been addressed in the slightest. Justice delayed is justice denied, and right now
The RCMP, RNC and others can claim they were acting with good intentions, but the road to Hell is paved with those. I’m sure the guards at the Nazi Concentration Camps thought they were just dealing with a pesky vermin problem so their good upstanding neighbors wouldn’t have to mess their clothes.
No matter how you slice it, the mentality of Nazism has taken hold in Canada and sunk its roots deep into Newfoundland. With our genocidal and slavery-stained past, it should come as no surprise to any student of Newfoundland’s history.
The rights of individual citizens, families, the poor and the disabled, are being abused and degraded in Canada, especially in Newfoundland. By underfunding the judiciary, hiring too many police officers without a proper understanding of the law, and choking our legal system with a “Tough on Crime” mentality, we lose the ability for the legal system to operate in a fundamentally just fashion.
Instead of an independent and efficient judiciary, I’ve seen Crown attorneys arbitrarily flout legal and ethical standards. I’ve seen lawyers operating in conflict of interest positions and not being penalized. I’ve seen police with no respect for their duty to uphold the Charter as the Supreme Law of Canada as written in our Constitution. None of these people are above the law. I submitted peacefully to the whole process, but now I’m not going to remain quiet any longer. The police and Crown have made a mockery of our court system to keep themselves employed. Not even to uphold the law. Just for money.
I don’t know about anyone else who reads this blog, but I’m sick of how closed off NL is to realizing the bureaucracy has become completely corrupt. People pretend it’s just minor corruption, but it runs deeper than you can imagine.
After all, Newfoundland is the only place in the world to have completed the genocide of a First Nation. Plenty of building and companies named Beothuk, but not a single member of the tribe remaining. No wonder people here can’t accept their sacrificial role in being the catalyst for the racial divisions, genocide and war that is currently occurring globally.
Don’t expect the change to happen because of some rally. Or some vote. No occupy or anonymous movement will save us. This has to be direct citizen to citizen action.
Talk to people. Explain your point of view. Explain that approval seeking bootlickers in politics will never be able to fix anything. True change requires a real effort. Politicians just step up to ‘manage’ or ‘facilitate’, but really they just take credit for the hard work of others. Nothing will come of waiting for a vote and expecting the governments to follow the law when they’ve already repeatedly demonstrated no respect for it.
We can’t ask for change. We end up ask beggars on the street.
We have to seize change and demand a return to a more free, just, open and democratic society.
