What Canadian Police do to Canadian with Guns
"The police response was done by the book," Insp. Allen said at the time. "It was a call about a man with a gun."
After a judge's ruling last week, however, it would appear that this particular book can now be tossed in the trash.
Except the cops are not about to give up.
There is, apparently, an appeal in the works.
As reported here on Saturday, provincial court Judge Jon-Jo Douglas minced no words last Friday in delivering his decision to quash charges against Login, ruling in a point-by-point judgment that took almost three hours to finish that the Nottawasaga OPP, with the backup of military cops who also responded to the scene, had gone way too far.
"The police had not a whit of evidence to suggest (Login) was operating a firearm dangerously," said Douglas.
"The arrest was (therefore) illegal and unconstitutional."
The judge also ordered the police to quickly return Login's seized weapons -- even imposing a deadline of this Friday.
Thanks very much to Harvey Pederson for sending this.
