RCMP In Illegal Wiretap Scandal?

Posted on Sunday, March 05 at 12:02 by escapegoat
At the request of the RCMP -- and with Mounties present -- Fisher was arrested in Mexico City in 2002 in connection with an alleged drug conspiracy. Eight other Canadians were subsequently arrested in Montreal. But rather than extraditing Fisher back to Montreal to face justice with the others, he was locked up in one of Mexico's worst hell-holes to await a trial that never happened. For more than three years, RCMP and Canadian justice officials stonewalled, refusing repeated requests from Mexican judges to provide the evidence necessary to prosecute Fisher. And there he still sits in Latin America's largest prison. Population 9,000. Conditions unimaginable. http://www.ottawasun.com/News/Columnists/Weston_Greg/2006/03/04/1472990.html [Proofreader's note: this article was edited for spelling and typos on March 6, 2006]

    the RCMP are not your friends,get in the way and they will run over you and justify their every move.vengence is one of the prominent male traits and getting revenge in the RCMP is nothing new.

    remember these clowns are our federal police,so they get used to doing things against the provincial laws everyday and when contracted to the province they then break provincial and federal laws all the time(charter of rights don't apply when they are contracted,only provincial laws,notwithstanding clauses are rampant in different provinces)

    SO THEY ARE ILL TRAINED AND SOME ARE DOWN RIGHT CORRUPT.

    small wonder they SCREWED UP THE INVESTIGATION ON FOREIGN SOIL.

    then again the REVENGE THING and just maybe there is a cop that just figures he is gonna SAVE canadians some money leaving the guy in mexico.

    So in order to cover their asses, they're willing to leave this man rot in jail!!!! Somehow this doesn't surprise me, because of the fact that police, at every level, and politicians at every level, seem to be above the law. So much for the charter of rights, and freedoms, where it says that we are all equal before the law. When I come back "maybe" I'm setting my sights on becoming a politician, or maybe law enforcement. Best regards.
