The Braidwood Chronicles: RCMP end-run?

The unmitigated torrent of RCMP sleaze continues.

Those who have been following the twists and turns of the Braidwood Inquiry into the killing of Robert Dziekanski by RCMP officers don't, as they say, need a weatherman to know which way the wind has been blowing. The officers have made a spectacle of themselves, lying in perfect unison, wriggling and dancing on the stand. There were further attempts made to smear the reputation of their victim, with one mouthpiece attempting to bring decades-old records into evidence. There was a last-ditch attempt, using a questionable "expert," to tell us that we didn't see what we saw when we viewed and reviewed the Pritchard video.

There had been false statements given to the media. There had been a cover-up lasting for months. There had been evidence of rot from the very top, as Commissioner William "Bubbles" Elliott (and BC Premier Gordon Campbell), publicly contrite, sent private words of encouragement to the officers while Dziekanski's mother was still raw with grief.

It has been a sickening tale.

Think it couldn't get any worse? Oh, ye of little faith. If there's a dark corner to crawl into, the RCMP will assuredly find it. And so this morning we learn that the RCMP lawyers have gone to the British Columbia Supreme Court to head off the Braidwood Inquiry, asking it to enjoin Justice Braidwood from making any findings of misconduct against the Four Horsemen.

That would be improper, says David Butcher, the lawyer for Constable Bill Bentley. The Inquiry is provincial. The officers come under federal jurisdiction.

Is this yet another straw being grasped by that sorry gang of ill-trained cowboys, drowning in their sea of lies and excuses--or is it a lifebuoy? Only time will tell. Because w
e always seem to have a ready supply of the latter when police misbehaviour is dragged, squinting, into the light.

Whats up! I'm about to begin my own website and was wondering if you know where the best place to buy a blog url is? I am not even sure if that's what its known as?
(I'm new to this) I'm referring to "http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=13775438&postID=5319197274613669091".
How do I go about obtaining one of these for the website I'm creating? Thanks alot :)

Hi. I noticed your website title, "Blogger: Dawg's Blawg" does not really
reflect the content of your web-site. When composing your website title,
do you believe it's most beneficial to write it for Search engine marketing or for your audience? This is one thing I've been battling with
due to the fact I want great search rankings but at the same
time I want the best quality for my website visitors.

Please be sure to let me know if this is acceptable with you.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet
effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say that you've
done a excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari.

Outstanding Blog!

First off I want to say superb blog! I had
a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior
to writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Kudos!

Greetings! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a
theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank you!

Surfing around reddit.com I noticed your blog bookmarked as: Blogger: Dawg's Blawg. I'm assuming you bookmarked it yourself and wanted to ask
if social book-marking gets you a ton of traffic?
I've been looking at doing some social bookmarking for a few of my sites but wasn't certain if it would generate any positive results.
Thank you.

Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring
writers? I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any recommendations? Thank you!

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox
and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails
with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
Thank you!

Heya! I hope you don't mind but I decided to publish your website: http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=13775438&postID=5319197274613669091 to my on-line directory website. I used, "Blogger: Dawg's Blawg" as your website headline. I hope this is alright with you. If perhaps you'd like me to change the title or perhaps remove it entirely, e-mail me at modestochang@googlemail.com. Thank you so much.

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with
hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of
hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods
to prevent hackers?
