Another politician weighs in. Maybe sort them out yet?

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

RE: RCMP Action in High River very disturbing

The actions of the RCMP In High River, Alberta, is very disturbing in
a free and democratic society. Using the flooding disaster as an excuse
to break into private homes and removing private property is a criminal
offence. This kind of behaviour one would expect from a common criminal.
What sets Canada apart from third world dictators is the rule of law.
This kind of behavior is a breach of public trust. No one can break into
your home and steal your property. No one can enter your home without a
search warrant. No one can take your property without your permission.
Just because the stolen property were firearms doesn't make it right or
legal. Why didn't they take jewelry and electronics which are more
valuable? In Manitoba many First Nations community homes were abandoned
over the last few years due to flooding. Did the RCMP break into these
homes to rescue their firearms? I think the RCMP needs to rethink their
role in a civil society. Wearing a uniform doesn't give them a licence
to break the law. I always thought their job was to serve and to protect
the public. A judicial inquiry needs to be called to investigate this
incident in High River. Your elected official needs to hear from you on
this matter.

Yours sincerely,


Inky Mark, former Member of Parliament
Dauphin, MB

Pretty good summary of why Canadian should all be angry about this (and why U.S. gun owners should continue to resist any licensing scheme):

It is absolutely, without question, unsettling. Particularly unsettling when so many who were personally unaffected by the confiscation respond with "Meh..."

I also know that is was not "unsafely stored" firearms ONLY that were taken. I know of cut cable locks.

It's been strangely quiet on that front lately, though.

Yes, indeed.

We can handle out-of-order RCMP officers without breaking a sweat. But a population and media that has grown accustomed to unilateral, unlawful police actions and thinks that is all "normal"?.......not so much. That is a ticking time bomb.

I know this is old news now, but the cops are giving back the firearms to pretty much everyone. They shouldn't have taken them in the first place but at least they're being put in their place. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has our backs on this issue.

Doesn't cut it for me.

The RCMP don't get to kick in doors, steal stuff and then say: "Whoops!" after they are caught and it's all forgotten. They committed crimes. They need to pay. Just like me. Just like you.

If you think Harper has our back, you're hanging in the wind. Harper broke with the Reform Party and voted with the Liberals to pass C-68 (Firearms Act).

We stand up, speak up and get active or we don't..... but make no mistake - nobody's going to do it for us. We are the people we have been waiting for.
