(Canada) RCMP Kill Again, Threaten Witnesses To Delete Cellphone Video.

https://www.castanet.net/news/BC/216590/Complaint-over-arrest-death

The Canadian Press-Jan 18, 2018 / 6:20 am


civil rights group has filed a complaint with the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP, alleging officers told witnesses to delete cellphone video of the arrest of a man who later died.

The B.C. Civil Liberties Association filed the complaint under the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Act on Tuesday in the case of Dale Culver. The association says the 35-year-old Indigenous man was arrested in Prince George last July.

An RCMP news release issued at the time says there was a struggle between officers and a suspect on the night of July 18, 2017.

The Mounties said police received a report about a man casing vehicles and an officer who responded found a man who tried to flee on a bicycle. There was allegedly a struggle between the man and the officer, who called in other officers for help.

Trump Pardons 5 Megabanks Charged with Corruption—Banks He Owed Millions

http://thefreethoughtproject.com/trump-pardoned-megabanks-owes-millions-rampant-fraud-corruption/

>Trump has been using Deutsche Bank since the 1990s, and Financial Times has reported that he now owes the bank at least $130 million in outstanding loans secured in properties in Miami, Chicago, and Washington. However, a source told the Times that the actual number is likely much larger at $300 million.

>During the week of Christmas, the Federal Register announced that the Trump Administration had issued waivers to Citigroup, JPMorgan, Barclays, UBS and Deutsche Bank—all megabanks facing charges of fraud and corruption.

>The banks were involved in the LIBOR Scandal, in which they colluded to deliberately depress the rate at which they paid out on investments. By suppressing the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) at the beginning of an economic crisis in 2007, the megabanks were able to boost their earnings and to give their customers a false sense of security.

>Deutsche Bank pled guilty to wire fraud in a U.S. court in 2015, and it went on to pay $3.5 billion for its role in the LIBOR scandal—more than any other bank involved—before it reached a $7.2 billion settlement with the Justice Department in early 2017.

>While Trump granted 5-year exemptions to Citigroup, JPMorgan, and Barclays, and 3-year exemptions to UBS and Deutsche Bank, it should be noted that his administration is not the only one to have done this. As International Business Times noted, “In late 2016, the Obama administration extended temporary one-year waivers to five banks,” which just happened to be the same ones Trump has now extended the exemptions on—revealing the real rulers in DC.

Dogs save elderly Michigan woman from freezing to death outside home

No.220190 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnAhCQnUQuA

In the darkness, amid frigid temperatures early Saturday morning, a pair of labradoodles began acting strangely.

It was 4:30 a.m., and Adam and Eva acted like they needed to go outside badly, something that was not normal for the dogs, owners Lonnie and Susan Chester said.

"(Adam) never tugged on my clothes before, so I was a cautious about letting them out because I didn't know if there was anything out there," Lonnie said.

Before Lonnie could open the door of their Norvell Township home all the way, Adam and Eva squeezed past and bolted to his truck outside. Next to it was a woman in her late 80s on the ground, freezing with nothing on but a night gown.

"She looked up at me and said, 'I'm so cold,'" Lonnie said. "I have no idea how long she had been out there. She must have been terrified."

He picked her up, took her inside the home, put her under some blankets on the couch and called 911.

The National Weather Service recorded a low temperature of 9 degrees for Jackson County at about 5:40 a.m. on Jan. 13, the day this occurred.

"It could have been a tragic outcome had Adam and Eva not woken us," Susan said. "I don't know how they knew she was out there."

Shortly after rescue crews arrived, the woman's family came to the house and asked if they had found their lost loved one, Susan said. The family was looking for her but did not see her as she was lying in the snow in the near total darkness.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/gaza-family-kills-relative-after-hamas-says-he-aided-israel/
>RAFAH, Gaza Strip — A Palestinian family said it had killed one of its members Friday after Gaza’s Hamas rulers said he aided Israel in killing three of the terrorist group’s commanders.

>The family said in a statement that a relative shot Ahmed Barhoum dead, but did not say which family member pulled the trigger. It said they followed developments in the Hamas investigation and believed their son was guilty.

>The family noted the relative was arrested and interrogated by the “resistance,” meaning he was detained outside the Palestinian litigation system. There was no immediate statement from Hamas.

>The Hamas commanders were killed near the end of the 50-day war with Israel in 2014 during an airstrike on a house.

>Hamas has executed dozens of Palestinians for collaboration since seizing Gaza in 2007
