We are all aware that some police can be placed in a situation where the likely hood of the officer being fatally injured is a likely outcome and they have to take immediate action to protect themselves and others by taking a human life. However, that was not the case in Dawson Creek British Columbia. An unidentified RCMP officer gunned down anonymous hackavist, 48-year-old James Daniel McIntyre in cold blood.
McIntryre wearing the Guy Fawkes mask was protesting at a public meeting held at the Fixx Urban Grill restaurant against the Site C dam, which is to be built this summer by BC Hydro, a Canadian utility company.
According to eyewitness reports there was another individual creating a disturbance in the restaurant, which was the original reason to why the RCMP was called in the first place. By the time the RCMP arrived, that individual had left. The RCMP later admitted that the man that they killed was not the man involved in the disturbance during a meeting about a planned controversial dam that is to be built.
The reason given to why the RCMP officer killed McIntryre is that he would not surrender the knife that he had in his possession when demanded by the officer. Given the distances between McIntyre and the Officer, the officer life was not in immediate danger. The only Statement that the RCMP has given to this date is; “There was a confrontation”, whatever that means.
This not the first time that police are involved in questionable shootings. In January of 2015, Bathurst Police shot Michel Vienneau without giving any reasons to the shooting. Vienneau’s wife Annick Basque told the media, that the Bathurst police shot the wrong man.
The Bathurst Police Force asked the Nova Scotia RCMP to investigate the Bathurst New Brunswick incident.
When the Nova Scotia RCMP were asked by media personnel if they would release the results of the investigation they refused to answer the question, it is now seven months later and no one knows anything about the facts and circumstances surrounding the police killing of Michel Vienneau.
When police do well, they should be recognized for the good that they do, but when they do something in error, they should accept the responsibility and the consequences of their actions.
Anonymous Issues Warning To RCMP
Anonymous Press Release: Operation Anon Down
Saturday – July 18, 2015 4:00 PM ET At approximately 6:30 PM PT on July 17, 2015 at an Anonymous protest in Dawson Creek, British Columbia which the RCMP was informed about in advance, an RCMP officer mercilessly shot and killed a masked Anon without provocation or cause. The situation should have been handled according to Treaty 8 protocols. And, if Canadian police were as brave as Canadian nurses, they could deal with people with knives without hiding behind bullets. This is the fourth Anon to be slain by security forces around the world in as many years. Turkey, Egypt, Palestine and now British Columbia in Canada. As in the past, Anonymous will not stand idly by while our own are cut down in mask. Anonymous has fought for the lives of protesters all over the globe, from Tahir Square in Egypt to Ferguson, Missouri. We will most certainly avenge one of our own when they are cut down in the streets while protesting the earth wrecking environmental policies of the Canadian government.
To this end Anonymous announces the launch of Operation Anon Down. The focus of this Op going forward will be gaining justice (and vengeance if necessary) for our fallen comrade in Dawson Creek. But we will also memorialize our previously slain brethren, and prepare to take action for future Anons killed by police – as we have no doubt they will cut down more of us.
To begin we will identify the RCMP officer involved, thoroughly dox him – and release that dox on the Internet. Because the world has a right to know every detail about killer cops. We will offer support and raise funds if necessary to cover the burial expenses of our fallen comrade. He will be buried with the honor and dignity that his courage has earned him. We will ensure that he is never forgotten, and takes his place in the growing ledger of brave Anonymous martyrs around the world. Then we will press the RCMP and Canadian government for justice. This RCMP officer must be named, fired, and charged – for the murder of our brother Anon. And if we do not receive justice, rest assured there will be revenge.
We call upon our fellow Anons in Canada to take to the streets and protest at the RCMP headquarters in every Province, every day – until our demands for justice are met. We call upon the Global Collective of Anonymous and allied crews to remove the RCMP cyber infrastructure from the Internet. March, create and sign petitions, hack, dox. We may not be able to bring back our fallen comrade, we may not even be able to prevent other Anons from being slain by murderous police – but we can sure as hell show them that there will be a steep price to pay when they kill us.
