west coast ,
Well – the local police seem to excel at incompetence. I have received two replies, one from Peter Thiessen:
‘I am currently away from the office and will return Monday Aug 12.. Please call Sgt Rob Vermeulen 778-290-2929 or 778-290-2908 for assitance or I will respond upon my return.’
Remarkably, I have also received a reply from Rob Vermeulen:
‘I am away on vacation, returning to August 22. I am not able to monitor email and will not receive your email. For any media related inquiries please call 778-290-2929.’
For what good it will do, here is a copy of an email sent to the West Coast British Columbia RCMP. As they have not responded to any of my earlier communications, I expect no reply. The next step for me is to raise these points with the Police Complaints Commission, and then I guess it’s onwards and upwards to Christy Clark and eventually the Queen, Canada’s Head of State (God bless her!). This story WILL come to an end, and it WILL be proven to be a fraud and a pack of lies.
And for all you daft clucks out there (DeeJay, basically) – the police could have contacted me any time over the last seven months or so, as they have had my details since December 2012.
I am writing to you because I am extremely concerned about your ongoing incompetence when dealing with the Amanda Todd case.
I have written to you before, and hopefully this is the last time I will have to do so.
I have to ask a couple of questions.
Are you simply so incompetent that, in reality, you cannot actually solve this case, when everyone else has? Or are you, as I strongly suspect, involved in making sure that this fraudulent story remains intact?
One of my main concerns (apart maybe from the fact that you are a terrible waste of taxpayers’ money) is that, as a police force, you should have the protection of those citizens who you work for as a central duty, but you have categorically failed to do so. There was one subdued reference to the fact that Kody Maxson was innocent but your incompetence – a word I will very likely use more than once – when it comes to keeping the public informed has meant that he and his family have come under enormous and totally unnecessary pressure from threats, directly and indirectly from the public.
This is not acceptable. Although you announced this once several months ago, it was not enough, and you should have spent a lot more time and effort in making sure that he did not become an innocent victim of the maniacal Amanda Todd supporters.
Another concern is that you seem to be involved in fraud. Should this become known by the public, you will contribute to destroying what little faith people still have in you. Not only that, of course, but you will have been breaking one of the laws that you are meant to so staunchly defend.
How might that fraud be perpetrated? If you really are so incompetent that you don’t know that the whole story is just a pack of lies, then you might just about get away with it. Maybe an incompetent police force is better than a fraudulent one. However, it is very difficult to believe that you can be quite so incompetent.
If you ARE aware that the story is a pack of lies, then you are in big trouble. This letter will be forwarded to the British Columbia Police Complaints Commission, and to Christy Clark, and if it is not resolved at those levels, I expect you are probably aware that here in the United Kingdom, I can contact the Privy Council if necessary, as they have jurisdiction.
The fraud you are committing is in letting people believe the story and therefore encouraging them to donate funds, out of the kindness of their hearts, to the Vancouver Foundation and the the Amanda Todd Legacy Fund. You are also involved in fraud, because you are allowing a false story to be spread as true for your own purposes. You are also involved, through this fraud, with incitement to murder and harass, because you have done so little to prevent the vigilantes from publishing highly inflammatory material. You are also involved in fraud by pretending – yes, surely you must have been pretending – to have a number of people working on the case, when you know that there was no case to investigate.
All in all, you have behaved terribly, and it has to stop – the sooner the better. In the same way that an absence from a court appearance is taken to mean guilt, I will consider a non-response to this email as an acceptance of your guilt.
This email will be published on my blog, which has quite a high number of readers, many of them from British Columbia, so I suggest you act soon to avoid any embarrassment.
Yours in anticipation,
