IS RANDY MCKEEN RIGHT OR WRONG?????

Here's his views!!


Many of you know the name Charles Leblanc. For years he was a frequent letter writer to provincial newspapers and caller to radio and television talk shows. Several years ago he pitched a tent on the grounds of the legislature to protest what he felt was the over-prescription of Ritalin for children with A-D-H-D.



He’s also gained some notoriety by being banned from the legislature and for operating a blog that takes shots at politicians, bureaucrats, the Irvings and Rogers Television. Leblanc is the first to tell you he can be a pain in the butt and many politicians and most of the mainstream media clearly see him that way. Two years ago, Leblanc was arrested while covering a demonstration in Saint John for his blog. He was roughed up during the arrest and the pictures he had taken of the demonstration were deleted from his digital camera.



Leblanc was charged with obstruction of justice. He was denied legal aid and only got legal representation because Fredericton lawyer Harold Doherty agreed to take his case for free. The cards were clearly stacked against Leblanc. Despite that, he was acquitted and as the facts became known, it became apparent there was an obstruction of justice, but it wasn’t Charles Leblanc doing the obstructing.



He should never have been charged. In fact, he should never have been arrested and the evidence of that is as plain as day. The presiding judge certainly saw that. In handing down his decision, Justice William McCarroll noted that much of Saint John Police Sergeant John Parks' testimony was inconsistent with the video evidence. The judge’s language was strong and left no doubt he did not believe the officer’s sworn testimony.



I mean anyone who knows Charles Leblanc knows that Parks had to be lying when he said he deleted only one picture from his camera. When Leblanc is out and about getting stuff for his blog, he takes one picture about every ten seconds. There’s no doubt there was more than one picture deleted.



Despite all this, an R-C-M-P investigation – which had a suspicious change of investigating officers midway through – concluded there was no evidence of perjury. It didn’t say there was insufficient evidence. It said there was no evidence. That, quite frankly, is ludicrous and should make everyone very leery of our justice system. In the vast majority of criminal cases, defendants are convicted based in large part on the sworn testimony of police officers. I don’t doubt that in the vast majority of cases, police tell the truth. This is a case where the evidence suggests a police officer did not and that should not be allowed to go unchallenged, regardless of whether the person is charged is a pain in the butt.

This woman is a sweetheart, She never says much. She just sits on the couch and listens to her husband talking to the many strangers visiting her husband.

I interviewed Yvonne about the time an R.C.M.P. officer tried to killed her.

The media never covered the story.

Her concern is this - If she was treated like this at the age of 66 years old? What other bad deed are the R.C.M.P. doing to other citizens in New Brunswick?

The R.C.M.P. handcuff her and forced her head in the water twice.

Very scary stuff.

Here's the interview and she even broke down crying once.

Very sad -

SOLICITOR GENERAL AND MINISTER OF PUBLIC SAFETY JOHN FORAN IGNORES LAWYER HAROLD DOHERTY CONCERNS!! NEW BRUNSWICKERS ARE IN GREAT DANGER!!!!

IMG_0204johnforanIMG_4855-1

Minister John Foran asked Harold Doherty if he would put his concerns in writing?

The Iron Horse did just that!!!

My God!!! He's good!!!!

Here's the letter -

August 8, 2008



Honourable John W. Foran

Solicitor General and Minister of Public Safety

Argyle Place
364 Argyle Street
Fredericton, New Brunswick
E3B 1T9



Dear Sir:



Re: Charles LeBlanc Complaint



This is to confirm the concerns expressed in my visit to your offices on Tuesday, August 6, 2008 in respect of the above noted matter.



1) The RCMP conducted investigation found no evidence of perjury.



The finding of no evidence of perjury, as opposed to insufficient evidence of perjury, with respect to Sgt. Parks, as alleged in Mr.LeBlanc’s complaint, is difficult to accept in light of the evidence produced at trial, the findings of the learned trial judge and the information submitted with Mr. LeBlanc’s complaint.



2) The Findings of the Trial Judge



In Mr. LeBlanc’s trial on charges of obstructing justice he was acquitted by His Honour Judge McCarroll.



R. v. LeBlanc, Citation #2006NBPC37

http://www.canlii.org/en/nb/nbpc/doc/2006/2006nbpc37/2006nbpc37.pdf



Page 16



It is clear from the C.B.C. video that contrary

to what Sergeant Parks testified to, Mr. LeBlanc was off to his right some distance, not behind him. It’s likewise clear when reviewing the tape in slow motion, that contrary to what Sergeant Parks testified to, the defendant was not moving towards him just prior to his arrest. It is inconceivable to me after viewing the tape, how Sergeant Parks could have perceived the defendant, down on one knee, some distance from the protestors, taking pictures, as a threat.



Pictures 029IMG_4855-1A1




Page 17



It is clear from the video that immediately upon turning the previously arrested Mr. Webber over to another officer, Sergeant Parks for some reason, went directly towards the defendant, grabbed him in the upper chest area,pushed him towards the far wall, and pinned him there. In his testimony, Sergeant Parks said that he did not touch the defendant until they were at the far wall.





ARREST



Sergeant Parks justified his arrest of the defendant, not only on the basis that the defendant was behind him and that he posed a threat with his camera, and that he was moving towards him, but also because he refused a direct order from Sergeant Parks to leave the area.

After viewing the video many times at normal speed and slow speed, the conversation the officer said he had with Mr. LeBlanc prior to his arrest was not in any way apparent to me.


Pages 17-18


Sergeant Parks said the defendant was resisting somewhat and had to be taken to the floor in order to apply handcuffs,

yet the photo marked Exhibit “D” clearly shows

Sergeant Parks and Mr. LeBlanc strolling arm and arm from one side of the foyer to the other with no sign whatsoever of resistance from the defendant.

Page 20



The conflicting evidence in this case presents me with difficulties in arriving at a conclusion the accused is guilty as charged. There is such a discrepancy between the evidence of Sergeant Parks and the CBC video, that I find it unsafe to convict Mr. LeBlanc. I am not even satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that if Mr. LeBlanc was in fact ordered to leave by Sergeant Parks, he heard or understood the order. I have pointed out other serious inconsistencies between the evidence of Sergeant Parks and the video earlier on in this judgment.

Considering the evidence in it’s totality with all of the inconsistencies,I am not satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that Charles LeBlanc willfully obstructed Sergeant Parks in the execution of his duty.


His Honour Judge McCarroll is an experienced trial judge and a former Crown prosecutor. His choice of language in describing the several inconsistencies between the CBC video and Sgt. Parks is unusually strong in not accepting the testimony of an experienced police officer. As the decision makes clear, Judge McCarroll studied the evidence carefully, viewing the CBC video recording several times. The inconsistencies he found in Sgt. Parks evidence were not peripheral facts in the case. They were central to the charge of whether Mr. LeBlanc committed obstruction of justice and to Judge McCarroll’s decision to acquit.


3). Sgt. Parks’ Deletion of Photos on Mr LeBlanc’s Camera


Sgt. Parks stated in his file notes and in testimony that he saw and deleted only one picture from Mr. LeBlanc’s camera.



IMG_9458



Constable Tanya Lawlor testified that Mr.LeBlanc had been on the scene throughout the day taking pictures.


Pictures 139A3



Mr. LeBlanc did not testify in court but informed investigating RCMP Officer Delaney-Smith that he had taken many pictures that day and that they had all been deleted. He also informed her that the Canon camera he uses does not permit you to unknowingly delete all photos.

The CBC video shows Mr LeBlanc taking pictures of the demonstration in the opposite direction from Sgt Parks before he is arrested.




Pictures 072




The last picture on the camera could not have been of Sgt Parks and he would have had to do a search of the camera in order to see a picture of himself.

All photos were deleted and that can not be done accidentally with this type of camera.




IMG_2703




You either have to delete all pictures one at a time and therefore intentionally or you have to press delete all in which case the camera asks you to confirm that you want to delete all and then you have to perform another 2 steps by moving the cursor over to the right and pressing OK. A bright green line then shows you the progression of the deletion process.

Again, you can not unknowingly delete “all” on this Canon camera model. This information was presented to the first investigating officer Delaney-Smith.



4. A Second Officer Took Over the Complaint File



The RCMP investigation was initially conducted by RCMP Corporal Delaney-Smith. She spoke with me in addition to interviewing Mr. LeBlanc. I understood from my discussion that her report would be done in December.




IMG_6217




In the new year there was no news and at some point I was informed that the file was being handled by Staff Sgt. Gary Belliveau.

It is understood that there may be more than one officer involved in a file for any number of innocuous reasons. In the circumstances of this case though, with an experienced trial judge pointing out, in strong language, several clear inconsistencies between Sgt. Parks testimony and the CBC video evidence, and an investigation conclusion of NO evidence of perjury Mr. LeBlanc is suspicious that the RCMP may not have liked the first investigating officer’s conclusions and then changed them. I share Mr. LeBlanc’s suspicion.


Respectfully,


Harold L Doherty

I received this email from the Minister last week -



IMG_3812



Dear Mr. Leblanc:



I am writing to you in response to our meeting held on August 5th in my office. At that time we discussed your concerns related to the outcome of an RCMP investigation of allegations of perjury by a Saint John police officer.



Your specific concerns were directed at a statement in Mr. Quigley’s letter that the RCMP found no evidence of perjury in their investigation. Officials from the Policing Services Branch of my Department have discussed this further with the RCMP. To elaborate, the police will only lay charges when they feel they have sufficient evidence of the required elements of an offence to ensure a reasonable prospect of conviction in court under that offence. In this case, they concluded that their investigation did not yield sufficient evidence required to pass that test.



If you do not accept the outcome of an RCMP investigation, the appropriate process to follow is to initiate a complaint with the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, as that is the organization with a federal mandate to provide civilian oversight of the RCMP. Further information on this organization, including the proper process to initiate a complaint, may be found on the internet at http://www.cpc-cpp.gc.ca/. They may also be contacted by telephone at 1-800-665-6878.



Because your initial complaint to the New Brunswick Police Commission contained allegations of a criminal offence, which lay outside their jurisdiction, they followed proper procedure and referred the matter to me to request a police investigation. Now that the criminal investigation has been concluded, any other complaint you might have that would fall under the purview of the Police Act, such as a breach of the Code of Professional Conduct Regulation, may still be worthy of review by the New Brunswick Police Commission. They may be contacted at (506) 453-2069 for further advice in this regard.



If you have any further questions with respect to how to initiate either process mentioned above, please contact the Assistant Deputy Minister for Police, Fire and Emergency Services, Mr. Dick Isabelle, at (506) 453-3603 or dick.isabelle@gnb.ca.



Thank you for bringing your concerns to my attention. I hope that the information provided in this letter is helpful to you in understanding the options you have for public oversight of our police forces.



Yours sincerely,

STA_0026



Hon. John W. Foran

Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General



c.c. Assistant Commissioner Darrell LaFosse, Commanding Officer, J Division RCMP

Mr. Peter Seheult, Chair, New Brunswick Police Commission

Mr. Dick Isabelle, Assistant Deputy Minister, Police, Fire and Emergency Services
