Back in May of 2012, Best Gore community identified and reported a potentially dangerous man to the Canadian authorities. Best Gore acted in public interest to get the killer off our streets, but the authorities did not seem to care and blew us off. A few days later, severed body parts were delivered to the headquarters of major Canadian political parties and the case became the front page news. All of a sudden, the authorities found themselves faced with a hunt for a man they previously blew Best Gore off about.
Needless to say, while we at Best Gore acted in public interest and went out of our way to identify and report the perpetrator, the police seemingly failed to act in public interest and allowed the perpetrator to escape to Europe, as if taking the report that there could be a potentially seriously deranged murderer among us seriously was not worth their time. But with all mainstream media all over the case, the fact that the cops blew the Best Gore reports off had the potential to show them as incompetent and their response as inadequate. So how did the cops resolve this looming public backlash? By announcing that they are looking to prosecute me for publishing the video in the first place and with that, instead of asking why the police did not go after the killer who could have killed more of us, the public and the media went out on a witch hunt.
So… even though I already know that both mainstream media and general public thank a guy who goes out of his way to keep dangerous people off our streets with public lynching, here I am again to expose what the police seem to be brushing under a rug and the media either ignore and don’t give due attention to. More than 4 million people peruse Best Gore each month, with almost half a million of them being from Canada. Will Canadians fail to see the bigger picture again?
Excessive Use of Force in Alberta?
Video below was recorded in Cold Lake, Alberta. A young man by the name of Richard Claybert, who’s legally deaf was subjected to what could be perceived as police brutality. I was not there to witness the incident with my own eyes, but have an account of Best Gore member JezeusKrishna who described the incident as follows:
On September 21, 2012, a deaf man from Cold Lake, Alberta by the name of Richard Claybert was a victim of police brutality when a power tripping cop pulled him over, pepper sprayed him and kicked him in the face for “resisting arrest” when Richard couldn’t hear or abide by the police officers commands. The arresting officer then beat his baton on the ground in a primitive threatening gesture and asked:
“Who else wants to be arrested?”
Richard Claybert is the son of a school secretary and is legally deaf. He is a non-violent person. The arresting cop has yet to be formally charged but the investigation is pending. The video of the event was captured on camera by his friends. There’s no gore in the video or anything but I hope you can help spread the world and get justice for Richard Claybert.
Best Gore was acting in public interest when 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick video was released and is proud to act in public interest once more. People who witnessed the incident want the video to be seen so general public can judge for themselves. And because big name media don’t give the incident appropriate coverage, I’ll take care of spreading it among the masses myself.
From what I have noticed by previewing the video, the arresting officer kicked a restrained guy in the face. Was the guy mouthy? Possibly, but does that give the officer the right to kick him in the face while he’s down on the ground with his hands tied behind his back? Furthermore, does his position of a public servant give him the right to threaten onlookers with arrest just because he has the authority to do so whereas they don’t? Were his actions meant to send the signal that the public does not have the authority to question actions of the police and if they do, they could face similar fate as the guy subjected to excessive force? Judge for yourself.
As a side note – I was not communicated what the officers were responding to. Obviously, they were responding to something which required their response so the victim is not all innocent in this. Still, I don’t see how kicking a handcuffed guy in the face could be justifiable. The police are public servants paid with the taxpayers’ money and it should be their duty to conduct themselves professionally even when dealing with drunk people who are mouthing them off.
BTW – I wonder what the cops will threaten me with this time around for bringing this video to the public’s attention:
