Two L.A. police officers charged with sexual assault

Reuters is reporting that "two Los Angeles Police Department officers have been charged with repeated sexual assaults on four women while on duty in their squad car and elsewhere, prosecutors and police said on Wednesday." That is messed up.

Cops who commit rape and bikers who sell crack are BOTH bad. Which brings us back to the Dianne Rock story. Dianne Rock claimed she was gang raped on the Pickton farm. That would imply more than one suspect. Janice Edwards testified that she picked up her friend Dianne Rock hysterical from a gas station with visible injuries after she was gang raped.

Dianne Rock claimed she was gang raped by bikers and police. Just ask Bob Paulson. He didn't believe her and that's why she left police custody and ended up dead. Will there ever ben a real missing womans inquirey? I doubt it. Too many people have too much to hide and I'm not just talking about Jim Brown. The media reported that off duty police officers attended parties at Piggy's Palace. Wally Oppal shut down the Missing Women Inquiry and turned it into a panel discussion where he could more easily censor evidence. Consequently we never did find out which police officer attended parties at Piggy's Palace. In fact, we'll never know.

Update: CBC is reporting that "The RCMP is scrambling to contain the fallout from bungled internal investigations into allegations of unwanted sexual touching, bullying and rampant nudity in the workplace at the explosives training unit of the Canadian Police College in Ottawa."

"In 2012, after a long investigation, the RCMP public complaints commission found rampant bullying in the police force. It unearthed 718 complaints filed by employees between 2005 and 2011, and found almost half the complaints were from men."

"In February 2013, RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson vowed to take action in the face of growing public disgust with the conduct of some of his officers."

"Yet CBC News has spoken to four complainants, all former employees of the RCMP's explosives training unit, who maintain the information is not new at all. The men say they tried to share accounts of other disturbing behaviour at the school in 2014 and 2015, but RCMP investigators didn't want to hear it." So Bob Paulson is clearly full of sh*t.

Tell me again why the Main Stream Media hates the CBC and aren't running this story?


  1. I have faith that the new inquiry will be better. The Justice Minister is better. This past Sunday, she once again marched, as she has in the previous 7 years, but this time as the Justice Minister for Canada.

    Of course given what is on the CBC news website, well the home page for news on Telus, sexual touching, harassment, etc. at the national RCMP bomb squad school, I DO EXPECT there will be something happing. Poulson might have handed the file off to the officer in charge, but really that isn't going to help. They need outside investigators, trained in doing investigations such as this. Then make the reports public.

    1. Yes, more sexual harassment in the RCMP reported by the CBC. You have more faith in a new inquiry than I do. Wally Oppal should be in jail for obstruction of justice and he's not. That shows non one really cares.

    2. Wally Oppal was a provincial appointee, by the B.C. Lieberals regarding a B.C. problem. did anyone ever think there was going to be anything but what the B.C. government wanted. It was under funded, not there to help the families of the victims, etc.

    3. Underfunded? Wally Oppal was over paid for obstructing justice and the police had a huge team of expensive lawyers.

  2. I remember hearing that. The only one I know of for sure was the former Mayor of Port Coquitlam Scott Young. He had a lot of problems. He was arrested for assaulting his wife as well as a former girlfriend. Tragically his daughter committed suicide. Later he was found in possession of the same type of rope his daughter used to hang herself.

  3. One hopes that in addition to unwanted sexual touching, bullying and rampant nudity, they actually learned something about explosives while they were there.

    "How to blow up a pipeline to frame someone" doesn't count...

    You have to keep "The Iceberg Principle" firmly in from on you when dealing with police misconduct. For every incident you hear about, how many are under the surface and never seen/heard about? The problem is that the culture of silence is so deeply entrenched, with new members being initiated at Depot/training every training cycle. How to break that cycle is the challenge, but the cycle doesn't want to be broken.

  4. it will be very interesting to see how the class action lawsuit progresses. a class action lawsuit with 300 people, is one big class action lawsuit, when it is against one employer. It will be interesting to see what the new Federal Liberals do about this. They have dealt with some issues, now lets see how they do with this one.

    to "reform" the RCMP the top layers of management needs to go and the rank and file need to get with the agenda/court case and form a union or join an existing one.

    the problem with the RCMP is the rank and file did not have any meaningful recourse. Had they had a union, which could have taken their complaints to an independent third party for arbitration, it might not have gotten as bad as it has.

    In other parts of the civil service, which is unionized, staff have been able to file grievances against managers, supervisors, etc. and had the managers, removed.
