Jeffrey Klassen convicted of assault

Jeffrey Klassen has finally been convicted of assault. He was the use of force trainer that beat and robbed a newspaper delivery man with two other cops when they were off duty in Vancouver.


  1. Strange things involving the RCMP, other Police forces, & the lack of any sanctions against them, just never stops in BC;

    "Hutchinson died on the night of Oct. 25, 2008 after his motorcycle collided with (RCMP Officer) Robinson's Jeep at the corner of 6th Avenue and Gilchrist Drive in Tsawwassen."

    "Robinson is facing one count of obstruction of justice in relation to his actions after the crash."

    "The off-duty officer allegedly left the scene of the collision, which occurred about 10:30 p.m., and walked home, a short distance away, then returned 10 minutes later, when he advised police he had two beers earlier at a party and two shots of vodka at home before returning to the scene."

    "He was arrested and given two breathalyzer tests, both of which were over the legal limit."

    "The Crown's Criminal Justice Branch announced the charge last week after months of police investigation, saying there is not enough evidence to support going forward with a charge of impaired driving causing death or dangerous driving causing death, the two charges recommended by Delta police."

    Over one hundred motorcyclists showed up @ Court, (as with the Kelowna demonstrations against RCMP lack of sanctions there, people are obviously getting just sick of this) and there is public anger.

    I'm tired of repeating, "I support my local Police" every time this happens, which is recently once a month (!) in our Province.

    Think of what would happen to a member of the public who had done what this Officer did.

  2. Indeed there are too many of these cases reoccurring and that is sad. It’s not just one or two bad apples it’s a lot. We need to get the civilian agency in place to handle police complaints so they are more publically accountable. The public pay their wages.
