Above The Law: How Canadian Police Are Rarely Held To Account When Accused Of Misconduct
Canadian police are rarely held to account when accused of breaking the law.
By Bruce Livesey

[…]

Like the United States, Canada has a poor track record of prosecuting police who break the law, despite the emergence in some provinces of agencies specifically designed to investigate police.

BuzzFeed News examined court records, data from police investigatory bodies, and media accounts, and spoke with experts, former police officers, victims, lawyers, and advocates and found that Canadian police who kill, wound, assault, allegedly plant evidence, or are found to have lied in court are rarely held to account. We found many examples of officers who were reprimanded by judges for fabricating testimony, or whose unethical conduct caused charges to be dismissed, and who went on to commit similar acts — and even be promoted.

“It’s like Groundhog Day,” said André Marin, a former Ontario Ombudsman and former head of the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), an agency that investigates police in Ontario when they cause injury. “When there is a [police] shooting, everybody freaks out, ‘Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god,’ and nothing seems to happen.”

Alan Young, a criminal law professor at Osgoode Hall Law School, agrees. “Basically when it comes to accountability for misconduct, police get a free pass,” he said. “It’s always been that way and it will probably continue that way until somebody wants to champion the issue of police accountability.”

One significant challenge in evaluating the accountability of police in Canada is that no nationwide data exists that accurately tracks how many police officers are accused or investigated for misconduct, what happens when they are investigated, how often they are prosecuted or cleared, and which offenses they are most often accused of committing. But the few statistics that do exist on police accountability paint a bleak picture.

Where The Wild Roses Grow

Summary: When Jughead becomes an active member of the Southside Serpents, him and Betty are starting to grow further and further apart, as the boiling volcano of Riverdale’s Civil War is threatening to erupt in full force. Can a heart to heart with Alice Cooper and an old Serpent jacket give Betty and Jughead the hope they both need?


(This is huge so grab snacks and drinks. The Bughead scene ruined me. I apologize for all of this. Warning: full angst and sin ahead! I’m not describing it as much anymore cause after the Jughead I saw in the finale that’s a given but still, after I post this, I’ll crawl under my covers in blushing embarassment.😂 Here you go, lovelies! I hope you enjoy this! ❤️)


“On the second day he came with a single red rose

He said, "Give me your loss and your sorrow?”

I nodded my head, as I lay on the bed

“If I show you the roses will you follow?”

The snow is slowly melting under the heaps of rain and so is her will to contribute to life these days. The icy scenery that adorns Riverdale gives out under the rays of sun that stubbornly peek through the pine trees and white oaks, ridding their leaves from the coldness of nature, only to become shiny droplets of clear water that hold the whole kaleidoscope of colors, just like tears and their colossal scale of emotions. He is the ice, she is the stubborn sun; that’s what he tells her through the sad darkness of each night that they lay together but further and further apart. He says it as a compliment, in the most sullen John Wheelwright fashion, but she accepts it gladly as her fingers form infinity signs over the crackling ice of his golden heart. Her hair is golden too under the dim moonlight, it’s a match made in heaven, and she vows that tomorrow she will try to burn hotter than the December sun over the patches of snow that are menacingly trying to turn him into a lifeless statue. And she does. But not today.

ritalinkin  asked:

why do you believe steven avery to be guilty? i very firmly think he's innocent!

From watching the documentary? Because it’s ridiculously bias. The documentary makers portray him to be something he’s not and downplay his disturbing past. For example, the part detailing what happened to the cat wasn’t accurate. It wasn’t a teenage mistake. He poured gasoline over a cat and threw it into a bonfire. Additionally, he allegedly raped his 17-year-old cousin and threatened to kill her family if she told anybody. She came forward after he was arrested but the case never went to trial because she was too afraid. A lot of evidence against him was also left out of the documentary.

For example, he specifically asked for Teresa to come to his house but did so pretending to be his sister and the reason he did this was because Teresa was scared of him. He opened the door to her naked previously and creeped her out so much that she said she would never return. It also didn’t acknowledge that he kept calling her on the day of her murder but withheld his number. After she was killed, he rang her again however this time he didn’t withhold his number, and it’s assumed because he knew she wouldn’t be answering, regardless of who was on the end of the line.

A number of her belongings were found burnt in his barrel and two witnesses at his trial testified seeing him putting things into the barrel. A number of barrels containing human remains were also discovered on his property. Ballistic evidence showed that the bullet containing Teresa’s DNA was fired from Avery’s rifle. Had the bullet been planted, how did it get her DNA on it and how could it have been shot from his gun when it was confiscated at the beginning of the investigation? Furthermore, in regards to the hole found in the blood sample that the documentary tries to pen as evidence of a framing, a nurse came forward straight away to confess that she had made the hole. They didn’t include that in the documentary, of course, because that didn’t fit with their theme. Another thing they didn’t mention was that sweat containing Avery’s DNA was discovered on the hood of her car and on her car keys.

In my opinion, they wanted a documentary that would sell and painted the case as something I don’t believe it to be and something the evidence doesn’t point towards it being. He wasn’t found guilty for nothing like the documentary leads us to believe. There is a profusion of corruption in the justice system and there were many legitimate cases they could have chosen to do a documentary on. They chose this case, in my opinion, so that idealistic viewers could transfer their shock and anger about the initial miscarriage of justice (and distrust of the police) to the murder case and use it as reasonable doubt.

Thought I would make this ask public if that’s okay with you because a couple of other people are asking why I believe him to be guilty!

It’s come to my attention that amidst the glory that is Wonder Woman many people are saying “This is what a DC movie should be like” and that godforsaken article “the dceu is in trouble everyone liked Wonder Woman” all the while blatantly ignoring the vivid and prominent parallels between Wonder Woman and the other DC movies, specifically Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, because they seem to be at center of all the vitriol. Some of these aren’t parallels necessarily, just things BvS and MoS have been criticized for that magically no one mentioned about Wonder Woman.

Let’s start out with the most obvious, yeah?

1. Wonder Woman was FUN!!!

No. It wasn’t. Let me explain, I had a blast in this movie, it moved me, it made me laugh, it made me cry, it made my blood pump and while I am so blown away by seeing a movie directed with the female gaze and with all these amazing female warriors, this isn’t a FunTM movie. It’s set in World War I for god’s sake. It never shies away from the atrocities experienced by the citizens and soldiers in this war. It shows realistically what PTSD looks like through Charlie. It brings up interesting and complex ideas and hard facts about racism, politics, sexism and the arrogance of mankind. There are light moments for sure, but it isn’t bouncy happy fun all the time. I would say it isn’t humorous or light the majority of the time either. It’s a very serious movie, it expects you to take it seriously and you do. The thing is, Batman v Superman and Man of Steel are the SAME way. There’s humorous moments, light moments, but they are serious movies with complex ideas about heroism and being an immigrant in a strange world and how the darkness can corrupt even the most justice and moral driven of heroes. I had in watching them. I had amazing experiences. So did many others. But none of these movies are “fun” movies. They don’t shy away from sacrifice or darkness. They acknowledge that. You can have fun experiencing the movie, and laugh at its humor, but it isn’t a lighthearted film.

2. Colors!!

I mean, we’ve all hear the terms “dark and gritty” and “lacking color” when talking about the DCEU, which is frankly bullshit but I digress. Wonder Woman wasn’t really “colorful” either. Themiscyra was, but I mean it’s a magically hidden island of Amazons from ancient times. But as soon as they leave the island, the world is grey and dark and dismal. Diana calls it hideous. But this didn’t seem to detract anyone from enjoying the movie or following the story. Diana’s suit isn’t even that brightly colored, something Henry Cavill’s Superman has been criticized constantly about. Both movies use color and the lack thereof, shadows, darkness, to help tell the story.

3. Mental health/Triggering

Both Wonder Woman and Batman v Superman tackle PTSD in very real, pointed ways. Each depicts scenes where characters clearly struggle with nightmares, triggers, and outbursts from what they’re experiencing. Both did so in a compelling and realistic way and yet one was mocked relentlessly and one was not. Batman v Superman lingers on the mental health issues the characters are experiencing more, but they are central parts of the story and how it progresses. Bruce’s PTSD is what allows him to be manipulated by Lex’s games. Charlie’s PTSD is real and heartbreaking, but he is surrounded by friends and people who understand, Bruce is largely along besides Alfred who honestly doesn’t now how to help anymore.

4. The name game

So something I heard over and over as a criticism for Man of Steel was
that no one calls him “Superman”. People said Zack Snyder was afraid to use the name, despite the fact this was an origin story and he wasn’t Superman yet. Despite the fact that Captain Ferris calls him Superman by the end of the film(and I agree Ferris, he’s totally hot). Yet Wonder Woman was not called by “Wonder Woman” in the film and no one seemed to have any problem with that.

5. Stories about sacrifice

This one really gets my goat. Man of Steel ended in the destruction of Metropolis, but the hope we could rebuild. Batman v Superman ended with Clark’s death, but the idea that men are still good, justice is coming. Wonder Woman ended with Steve’s death, but that love is the most powerful motivation for heroism. All three of these things are important, and yet BvS was trashed for implying that heroism requires sacrifice and Clark should have just given Diana the spear. Well, as Wonder Woman also expertly showed us, sometimes, you can’t do everything. Diana told Steve whatever it was, she could do it. But she couldn’t. There was no time. He could save the day, but she needed to save the world. In Batman v Superman a similar situation unfolds: a creature from another word. Batman has the gas, but he’s a weak human compared to Doomsday. Diana is strong, but she’s holding Doomsday back with the lasso. And there’s Clark who knows that he has to do something. He has the spear. When you can do something you have the responsibility to. That’s what being a hero means. So he does. In both cases that sacrifice reminded the heroes of what heroism really is about: hope, love, the fact that humanity is deeply flawed but worth fighting for. This lesson is also demonstrated in Man of Steel when Clark has to kill Zod to save a family.

6. The Hero loses faith

When Batman v Superman came out Superman/Clark was heavily criticized about the fact that he has a crisis of faith, right after the bombing and before Doomsday it really looks like Clark is going to give up. That he’s going to hang up the cape and give up the dream of being the people’s guardian. Diana has a similar experience. After fake-Ares is killed and she sees that nothing stopped, she has an absolute breakdown. Her entire worldview, everything she was taught was shaken and uprooted. Steve tries to convince her that people are worth believing in, and when he can’t he goes back to doing what he must do. He must help save people. In both situations, the heroes are put to the test when people they love are put in danger and face real doubts about heroism and themselves. In both cases, each hero makes the choice to continue the battle. Diana saves Doctor Poison, choosing to believe in humanity and and take down Ares. Clark does his best to reason with Bruce, who he considered a violent vigilante, to stand down, and even after the fight goes beyond his control he begs him to save Martha, he doesn’t care if Bruce kills him first, as long as he saves her. He puts his trust in Bruce’s humanity and THAT is why they are able to put their differences aside to help fight Doomsday. In both cases the crisis of faith were important developmental moments, showcasing to the audience how grueling and disheartening being a hero is sometimes. Sometimes people don’t understand, they vilify you, they mistrust you. Sometimes you don’t win, and those failures have a high cost. Do you keep going? Both these movies answer yes.

Listen, I’m really not asking you to like the other DC movies if you liked Wonder Woman. They are different movies and each film had different strengths and weaknesses, but I am saying that as a whole MoS and BvS have gotten some pretty unfair criticism due to largely what I think comes down to Zack Snyder. Some people don’t want to like his films, so they don’t. But in the light of all that Wonder Woman is getting praise for, which it deserves, that both the other films did well along side it is hypocritical. Patty and Allan did an incredible job, but I would like to remind people that Zack casted Gal Gadot, not Patty, and Zack, along with others, helped write the story that Allan adapted into a screenplay. This movie was a team effort in a grand scheme of films that had its own wonderful unique qualities while sharing the ideals and driving force that its predecessors did.

- “MC, you look beautiful.”
- “I can’t wait to see you.”

- *sirens sound*
- “Excuse me officer i would like to report a fucking murder.”
- Seven no now is not the time
- Zen was laughing his ass off
- “Yeah jumin you are a good FRIEND to MC”
- Jumin is slumped in the corner
- Defeated
- Given up on love
- that is until you and Jaehee are talking over the phone about this mysterious guy you’ve fallen for (hehehehehe)
- “He’s wonderful and kind and always says the nicest things to me!… But I don’t think he sees me like that.”
- “Why not MC?”
- “He doesn’t show any interest in being something other than friends.”
- “I’m sorry MC”
- “It’s okay, it’s not my fault Jumin doesn’t like me-”
- “ MC W H A T !!”
- “Shoot, Jaehee, I didn’t mean to say it, I just-”
- “I GOTTA GO!”

- you grabbed his hand.
- “Because I like you too.”
- Seven looked down then back up at you.
- “Wow, you have a crush on me? that’s so embarrassing…”
- Cue you throwing ur spoon at him

I have a theory that came up in a discussion today, so i did a little research, and now i’m collecting my thoughts here.

solas says a demon is a spirit that has been corrupted and turned away from its purpose. we know in game that wisdom becomes pride, and i theorize that justice becomes sloth.

when you take anders to the fade, justice has a lot to say about torpor, the demon of sloth that tries to sway hawke to allow it to posses feynriel, when they first meet the demon, justice has a warning for hawke, 

“a demon of sloth, it exists to make men forget their purpose and their pride, do not relax around it”

justice specifically associates sloth with a loss of purpose.

justice has another warning for hawke if they decide to hear torpor out,

“don’t listen to him! sloth demons prey on your trust.”

and then when torpor gets to the part about wanting to possess feynriel,

“this is a monster! it asks you to sacrifice an innocent to its ambition!”

we know that justice hates demons, (all jokes about trading with “not very reasonable” hunger demons aside), but he does not have such an extreme reaction to other demons as he does when it comes to sloth,

“This is a creature of complacency, of injustice, i cannot let you treat with it!

he specifically calls the sloth demon a creature of injustice, with complacency ranked right up there as unjust. 

that takes us to elthina. who could be described as complacent. meredith and her templars were the ones killing and abusing mages, but elthina was justice’s and anders’ target in the end. (i’m not going into the impracticality of attacking the templars directly right now, but that likely would not have worked anyway) because it was elthina’s complacency, her sloth, that allowed these injustices to happen. she had the power to stop it, but she did not take action, so in the end, she was the real enemy for anders and justice to end.

the sloth and complacency of those who could end injustices were the real enemy for justice, so i think that would mean sloth is a corrupted spirit of justice, which would also explain justice’s extreme hatred of torpor.

Arya Stark: Justice, Not Vengeance 

An important part of Arya’s AGOT arc is her harsh introduction into the realities of the world beyond Winterfell. Like the rest of her siblings, she’s raised believing the world is a certain way: Bad people will be punished and the innocent will be protected. So when she sees Joffrey assaulting Mycah, she does what she’s been taught is the right thing to do: she stops him. Once Joffrey is disarmed completely, she even stops Nymeria from mauling him. This moment is about justice for her, not vengeance.

So it’s a heavy blow when everything goes down hill from there. Nymeria has to be driven off so she won’t be killed for protecting Arya, Mycah is murdered, Lady is executed out of spite, and Arya is blamed by her sister for everything that happened. All the while, the villains, Joffrey, Cersei, and the Hound get away with everything. The part that has one of the most significant impacts on Arya though is the complete lack of response from those around her that she trusted to protect her and enforce justice.

This was the first time they had supped with the men since arriving in King’s Landing. Arya hated it. She hated the sounds of their voices now, the way they laughed, the stories they told. They’d been her friends, she’d felt safe around them, but now she knew that was a lie. They’d let the queen kill Lady, that was horrible enough, but then the Hound found Mycah. Jeyne Poole had told Arya that he’d cut him up in so many pieces that they’d given him back to the butcher in a bag, and at first the poor man had thought it was a pig they’d slaughtered. And no one had raised a voice or drawn a blade or anything, not Harwin who always talked so bold, or Alyn who was going to be a knight, or Jory who was captain of the guard. Not even her father. – AGOT

This incident is hugely important in the forming of Arya’s character since this makes her see her countrymen and the whole justice system in a new way. Witnessing the men she trusted turning a blind eye to injustice is a betrayal and the beginning of her familiarity with the realities of the world.

As she witnesses and endures the horrors of ACOK, she realizes that criminals going unpunished is an almost constant occurrence. That’s part of why she keeps her list of the names of those who have hurt her, her family, or other innocents. The list is seen as the ultimate proof of her vengeful nature, but it’s really a coping mechanism to help her get through the atrocities of the life she’s been thrown into. It’s also a way of keeping track of the criminals who have escaped punishment so they can be executed later, because that’s the type of justice she’s been taught.

I should kill them myself. Whenever her father had condemned a man to death, he did the deed himself with Ice, his greatsword. “If you would take a man’s life, you owe it to him to look him in the face and hear his last words,” she’d heard him tell Robb and Jon once. – ACOK

In a corrupt world where justice is disregarded in favor of the interests of the powerful, Arya takes what she has been taught by her father and tries to enforce the justice that’s missing from that world. That’s why she “wastes” one of the deaths Jaqen promises her on Chiswyck, who casually confesses to gang raping a thirteen year old. That’s why she ruins her cover as Mercy to execute Raff, the man who also participated in the rape and murdered Lommy. That’s why she struggles to kill the insurance man for the Faceless Men, trying convince herself that he earned death and should be punished.

Thousands protest against Brazilian president Michel Temer, reforms in Brasília

Several thousand anti-government protesters clashed violently with police in the Brazilian capital on Wednesday, smashed windows of several ministry buildings and set tires on fire near Congress, sending black billowing smoke into the air.

The march was called by leftist parties, unions and other groups demanding the resignation of scandal-hit President Michel Temer and that his austerity measures before lawmakers, which would weaken labor laws and tighten pensions, be shelved.

Temer last week refused to resign in the face of new corruption allegations against him and his closest aides, putting his government and its reform agenda on the brink of collapse.

Unions and leftist parties opposed to Temer’s labor and pension reforms called the Occupy Brasilia protests to press for his removal.

The large crowd gathered peacefully near Brasilia’s national soccer stadium around midday.

As they marched toward Congress, police unleashed tear gas and stun grenades, and television images showed them clubbing some demonstrators with truncheons. Ambulances arrived on the scene to treat an unknown number of injured.

Some protesters responded by smashing the windows of ministries and lighting a fire on the ground floor of the Agriculture Ministry building. Masked demonstrators spray-painted several of the buildings with anti-Temer graffiti.

Riot police set up cordons around the modernistic Congress building where lawmakers met to discuss a post-Temer transition should the president resign or be ousted by one of Brazil’s top courts. If that happens, Congress would have 30 days to pick a successor to lead Brazil until elections late next year.

Summary: Kylo Ren had usurped the Old King, conquered lands, and built up an insurmountable defense. He had everything, except for a Queen. Even though he inspired fear in most, there where still many who would give anything for a place by his side, you weren’t one of them.   

Howlin’ for You (hiatus): A fresh start, it was just what you needed. You decided to move to Rosedale, a town which boasted the eerie slogan “Rosedale, You’ll never want to leave”. Quickly you realized that there was something off about this town, which seemed to be tidally locked between two rivaling gangs, the First Order and the Resistance. Before you get the chance, you’re sucked into the conflict, made ever more complicated by Kylo Ren. Werewolf AU

I just finished rewatching Justice League and Justice League Unlimited and during the Justice Lords episode(the one where an alternate dimension Superman killed Lex Luthor) I started wondering how that dimensions Danny would have reacted.
Like would he have been with the Justice Lords and their corrupted ideals or would he have fought against them. He could have ended up taken out by the League(which is terrifying to think about since that Superman lobotomized the villains) or maybe he escaped and started a resistance or something. There’s also the possibility that he could have ended up dying like the Flash in that universe at the hands of Lex Luthor.
I just thought it was an interesting concept to think of Danny’s role in a world with a corrupt Justice League. What do you guys think?
