That's the whole farking problem right there.  Instead of trying to find a solution to a complex problem, morans find a simple "solution" or a scapegoat and think the problems fixed.
 
2020-09-24 10:59:27 AM  
Here's the brutal truth: Police are not obligated to "protect and serve" the community. That phrase is 100% marketing and PR generated. On several occasions, the SC court has upheld that police legally do not have to stop crimes from occurring.* Parkland was the most recent example of that.

*I know this was Canada, but I'd imagine that their police have the same policy.

This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. There have been problems with the RCMP for decades. At this point they're almost better disbanding the RCMP and creating a new federal/national police force.

It's fine, PC federal leader Erin O'Toole said that there is no systemic racism in the RCMP.

So when the RCMP in Red Deer know about threats from white supremacists on a peaceful protest and they don't act on them, that's just fine.

This! My fellow WASP-y Canadians are waaay too smug and self satisfied about our own problems regarding civil rights. Especially when it comes to First Nations folk.

Dear Subby

Canada gets a really undeserved pass on being the nice guy in the world (all the nice guy countries are not actually nice countries). They probably have more racism issues than the USA they just haven't had to confront it yet because their minority groups are so small.

Most groups are well below 1% with blacks (2%) and first nation (4 point something %) and they treated the first nation group like total shiat. Like go read some of the disgusting shiat like taking kids from parents to have white people raise them shiat.

While racism is a problem in the USA the USA has been struggling with it and improving on it (at least slowly) as time goes on. Other countries just like to use the USA as a means to avoid talking about their own race issues. Tom Warren is a name that springs this up from The Verge. He will quickly jump in on USA race issues but will be crickets on UK one like targeted policing and stop and frisk.
 
2020-09-24 11:07:32 AM  
The police will step in when it looks like the racist are losing, so just go hard on them early and the police will do their job. I mean it's a shame that it takes breaking the bones and teeth of a few fascist to get peace but that's the environment the police created so it's kinda on them.

My wife has family north of Edmonton. We were there a few summers ago, and that is where I saw my first red MAGA hat in Canada.

I wasn't surprised, just disappointed.

There's racism in Canada. In no way is it as bad as in the US. That's abundantly clear. However, it is still a big problem.
 
2020-09-24 11:10:45 AM  
The US running headlong into authoritarianism has certainly emboldened racists in Canada, (and worldwide) but these problems with Alberta and the RCMP have always been here.

Canada is that nation that likes to tell you how many minority friends they have, despite the fact you never asked.
 
2020-09-24 11:14:00 AM  
After the news conference, I interviewed a Ponoka RCMP officer. When I asked him why RCMP were not taking more action (against the ppl w connections to hate groups) he said "are you suggesting one side's voice is more important than the others? b/c it's not."


Damn Canada. You need to get your cops under control before you turn into fascist US.

Oh, based on their history of being the repressors of the rights of first national peoples I think it's fair to say they're probably a more racist organization that your typical American police force, as hard as that is to accomplish.

More racist? Nope. If you're going to take history into account then the US wins hands down. Every time. Again, that's not to say there isn't a problem in Canada with racism but comparing it to the US is ridiculous. Canada was where the underground railroad went. This is like people confusing billions and trillions when talking about international economics. We don't even play in the same league.

Go home, you're drunk.

For starters, your numbers are off. "In the 2016 Census, the black population totaled 1,198,540, encompassing 3.5% of Canada's population." Second, there were 100 police shootings in ALL of Canada as of July that resulted in fatalities (source: https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/what-we​-​know-about-the-last-100-people-shot-an​d-killed-by-police-in-canada-1.4989794​ )

That's fewer deaths of all races than of blacks alone in the U.S. this year (source: https://www.statista.com/statistics/5​8​5152/people-shot-to-death-by-us-police​-by-race/ ). Now, the population difference accounts for some of that, but you're not really doing yourself any favors. There's a reason why you don't see Canadian cities burning at night.

How'd America's indigenous population fare, btw? Every country has a history, every ruling class treated the one before it like shiat. Equality is generally a modern concept.

But if you freeze frame video you will see several wearing Qanon and a Trump Shirt, so it looks like our American deplorable trash and filth, is being exported to the North. I do agree racism and bigotry are issues worldwide, but this particular group looked like mainly the MAGAots and morons of Qanon trying to drown out a peaceful gathering, as is their modus operandi here in the states.

Whenever these alt-right groups see something more powerful than they will ever be, or people being better than they can hope to be, they must destroy it and tear it down, by shouting then violence, it's all they know.

The degree of mental gymnastics some Americans go through to perpetuate their myth of exceptionalism is astounding.  This on the same day the Canadian government formally recognizes and vows to fight against systemic racism as one of their top priorities while the US administration continues to claim there is no systemic racism in the US.  You might want to change the channel from Fox news every once in a while. Your cities are on fire yo.
