June 14, 2006: No racism here ...

Weinreb: Residents of Caledonia deserve real police -- "The OPP should be removed from Caledonia." By Arthur Weinreb, Associate Editor, Wednesday, June 14, 2006, CanadaFreePress.com

[....] In Caledonia, where criminal acts have been taking place under the cutesy title of a "native standoff" (sounds like a dance), the rule of law has all but broken down.

[....] The standoff, which escalated when the Ontario Provincial Police tried and failed to end it in April, has seen an increase in violent acts in recent days. Last week, U.S. border agents were visiting the area to observe how the OPP were handling the situation. The agents’ vehicle was swarmed, they were dragged out, and their car was stolen.

[....] The OPP should be removed from Caledonia. Their conduct and that of the provincial government is despicable. [....]

The racism game ... again. Use the R word ... and police are reluctant to act since, from all angles, they are accused of racism. CBC, for example, would be first to use that tone that says the police are starting another Oka. They should just do what needs to be done.

Don't miss reading this one.
