Last week, Kelowna RCMP constable Geoff Mantler was charged with two counts of assault.

One of the “alleged” assaults was caught on video, and you can decide for yourself how strong the case against him is.

Manter is presumed innocent until he’s proven guilty. In the meantime, the RCMP have suspended him . . . . with pay!

Bus driver yanks child to ground – to teach a lesson?

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

A frustrated school bus driver yanked a girl to the ground because she wouldn’t listen to him and sit in her seat.

The surveillance video tells the tale of 63 year old bus driver, Dan Taylor, who had obviously had been pushed to the end of his rope.

The girl in question was seated in the front seat, across the isle from the bus driver. She stands up (in the aisle of the bus) and talks to other children who are seated behind her. When the bus driver notices this, he reaches behind him and grabs her by her backpack. He pulls her to the floor and says:

“That’s what’s going to happen if I hit the brakes. Now get in that seat and sit down.”

The girl goes back to her seat.

It’s been a bad week for Manitoba judges.

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

First there are calls for a Manitoba Justice’s removal from the bench for comments he made during a sexual assault sentencing. Now a Manitoba judge has been charged with assaulting a woman.

Judge Brian Corrin, 65, was charged with assaulting and threatening a family member. According to police, the alleged assault caused minor injuries to the woman.

Corrin has been a judge since 1988. He’s been place on administrative leave, pending the outcome of this case.

Corrin was suspended from the bench for 30 days back in 1996. A panel of six judges found him guilty of misconduct. He skipped a court hearing so that he could oversee repairs to his car.

Just goes to show that judges are as human as everyone else.
