Police Firearms task force - Out of Control?
The police love to show off weapons that are turned in under amnesty laws....but here is another view.
THE OTTAWA Police Firearms Task Force yesterday swooped down on a Navan Rd. homeowner suspected of having a cache of illegal weapons, shot him and his dog with a Taser and left without finding any weapons.And, they found nothing!
Yvon Richer says he was returning from an early-morning snowmobile ride on his 50-acre property in the city's southeast end at around 9:15 a.m. when a vehicle pulled into the driveway and a voice behind him screamed, "Get on the ground!"
He looked back at a police officer with his weapon drawn and as many as 40 others, some of them in tactical gear, lining the street.
They blocked off Navan Rd. between Mer Bleu and Renaud roads after receiving a "reliable tip" that the 60-year-old electrician, father and grandfather had a cache of weapons, and possibly dynamite stored in his 125-year-old farmhouse.
Richer was fumbling in his thick snowmobiling jacket for his keys to open the door when he was struck by a Taser dart. Shot twice, he has four puncture wounds and numerous bloody scratches to his face.
You might have noticed that just about all the guns that are turned in under amnesty laws are old, rusty firearms that people have found in their attics. Next time you see a picture in the newspaper, look closely! You'll easily see the age of the weapons. I wish the police would spend more time on illegal aliens, muslim incitement to violence, and on terrorism.
