Re: Robert Dziekański and the RCMP Taser Controversy

Const. Kwesi Millington has been found guilty of perjury and colluding with his fellow officers before testifying. His fellow peer Const. Bill Bentley was was acquitted of perjury in 2013. The tiebreaker will be the verdict given to Const. Gerry Rundel that's still under trial while his superior corporal Benjamin (Monty) Robinson will likely be found guilty as well. Dziekanski's mother is overjoyed.

Some of you wondered whether Kwesi is related to Sean. Well, they do have similar facial features: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-c ... -1.2964744

Speaking of Sean Millington, he is now an Investment Advisor at TD Waterhouse in Richmond. If you really liked Sean Millington, how about showing your appreciation by giving him some business by hiring him if you are interested in investing - if you trust him with your money the same way most trusted him with a football.

Const. Kwesi Millington has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for lying to a public inquiry. Maybe justice has finally be served.

That said, one is left wonder exactly how and why Millington's circumstances were different than that of Bill Bentley and Gerry Rundell as the two of them were acquitted even though all three of them were simply acting under orders by their superior corporal Benjamin (Monty) Robinson.

In this latest saga, former RCMP Kwesi Millington files new civil lawsuit as he alleges RCMP were negligent and defamatory, resulting in PTSD, depression, anxiety

----------
Now, it's been talked about before whether Kwesi is related to Sean Millington and I think most people would say he is but there's no definitive proof. But what I know for sure with 100% certainty is that Sean Millington did have another younger brother who I have personally interacted before - Troy Millington. I met him at UBC campus a few times and for a while he worked at a sporting goods store called Rackets & Runners and would sometimes stop by at a fast food place that I used to work briefly and I would make some small talk with him. He was very sociable and outgoing and he was very tall standing at 6'6", and he told me himself that his brother was Sean Millington.

Troy recently go into a lot of trouble with the law as he has been sentenced to 4.5 years in prison in Calgary for possessing thousands of images and videos of child pornography.

[Mod Staff - This is possibly defamatory to Sean Millington, associating him with two other people, who may or may not be related to him. Awaiting reaction from other Mods. If agreed, the post will be pulled or edited.]

Re: Robert Dziekański and the RCMP Taser Controversy

This recent example of the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police shows that Canada and the USA are miles apart when it comes to police brutality and protesting.



As I'm posting this, all major U.S. cities are protesting and in some cases rioting and that's a string of similar cases in the last decade in America.

Did Canadian cities have huge protests and riots over the death of Robert Dziekański and Myles Gray at the hands of the RCMP/VPD?
Not at all.

Re: Robert Dziekański and the RCMP Taser Controversy

No but they did have a public inquiry, 2 of the 4 were convicted of criminal charges and it started a national conversation about the use of force in policing. One thing you can say about the RCMP that you can't say about jurisdictions that have their own police forces (OPP or Surete for example) is that when communities rent RCMP services and something happens resulting in policy changes, they have a wide area of effect. Contrast that with the US. Their fragmented, local approach to just about everything doesn't have the same impact when situations happen requiring widespread procedural change. Minneapolis might institute changes that make them the best darn city force in the US for example but it doesn't make a lick of difference in Shreveport or Miami or San Diego. Something to consider when places like Surrey contemplate their own police force for example.
