Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases.
Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.Judge L.D. Brandeis US Supreme Court
Rogue Police is under the umbrella of Tuum Est and has the same terms:
“ The Saskatoon Police Service is a sick police force
The observation above, attributed to lawyer Tanis Talbot, gets somber agreement from defence attorneys across the city of Saskatoon, Canada. The rot spans two decades. There have been monumental miscarriages of justice — David Milgaard, the Klassen and Kvello families, Neil Stonechild.
And more recent cases abound. Rogue Police illuminates some of the ignoble actions committed by Saskatoon justice officials who abuse their positon of trust. The cases that are presented on this site are well-documented, on the formal court record.
Police officers bent on committing wrongs sorely resent educated citizens, for obvious reasons. Knowledge is not power in a detention cell, but it does give you the ability to scrutinize what you hear; you develop a carapace against deception; and you are better able to defend your case later with Statesman-like dignity in court.
Another trait: Rogue police officers openly exploit the most vulnerable people in society including the physically disabled.
Personal experience: From Saskatoon Sgt. James Bracken I heard surly resentment at the mere mention of physics (my field of study), and epithets such as "morbid curiosity" flung at patients who by necessity are well-informed about their own uncommon, long-term, or debilitating health conditions. Such epithets are emotional blackmail; do not succumb to it.
For purposes of our investigative journalism, we define abuse of authority by Saskatoon Police Officers thus:
Two of the major cases we cite:
My education includes two university degrees in Physics. My thesis research, on the topic Non-Linear Resonant Photoionization, extended the theory of non-linear optics. At UBC my experimental tool was a tunable laser, ground-breaking at the time, designed with a silvered diffraction grating as the reflector rather than a standard mirror.
After graduation I worked full-time as a research scientist until I developed a series of autoimmune diseases including Guillain-Barre Syndrome, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, and Interstitial Cystitis. If you need assistance with those topics, visit Tuum Est.
There is a difference between providing a research service to locate information (which I can do), versus giving legal advice (which I cannot do). To give legal advice means to list all options available in law, then recommend which is best for your particular case. That requires access to your entire file, as well as a law degree. If you need a personal advocate, retain an attorney (or consult a law student) in your own town or city. Note that Statutes and the Rules of Court vary by geographic region.Georgena S. Sil
