BOGUS POLICE SERVICE ACT CHARGES WITHDRAWN AGAINST TBPS OFFICER WHO WAS SPIT ON

BOGUS POLICE SERVICE ACT CHARGES WITHDRAWN AGAINST TBPS OFFICER WHO WAS SPIT ON

A TBPS OFFICER WAS BADLY TREATED BY THE POLICE CHIEF

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~   July 25, 2020  (LSN)  Police Chief Hauth treats hero officer like a criminal. local news media play along with the chief. Here’s what the director of communications at Thunder Bay Police Service won’t tell you about what really happened.

Hardworking TBPS Constable Courtney Clair was on duty on the evening of December 1, 2018.

THE CALL TO THE TROUBLE HOME ON EGAN STREET

A 911 call came in for an ambulance to attend at a home on 259 Egan Street in Port Arthur. It is a known and regular address for police and paramedics. The residents are usually intoxicated and uncooperative.

The call was for an intoxicated female who fell and hit her head on the coffee table. She was drifting in and out of consciousness.

Paramedics were dispatched to the address. Two hardworking TBPS male officers also attended because of the history of uncooperative behaviour at that address.

Officer Courtney Clair was the only female Officer on the platoon that night. When dealing with drunk females like this, the usual protocol is to have a female officer attend so bogus allegations against male Officers aren’t made.

The paramedics loaded up the one female who hit her head and she was taken to hospital.

But, the hardworking TBPS Officers weren’t finished at the house yet.
They spotted a 17 year old female from Summer Beaver in the home who was drunk and passed out. But Officers didn’t know her identity or age at that point.

One of the intoxicated men began kissing the passed out teenager in front of all three TBPS Officers.

UNCOOPERATIVE DRUNKS

Officers inquired as to the identity of this drunk female teenager. All these grown intoxicated men were not cooperating.

THE TEENAGER AWAKENS FROM HER DRUNKEN STUPOR

The teenager was woken up by Officers. The female drunk told police she was 21 years old and to “FUCK OFF”. This sentiment was echoed by the other drunken adult males in the room at hardworking TBPS Officers.

IF OFFICERS HAD KNOWN THIS WAS A YOUTH, THEY WOULD HAVE FOLLOWED THEIR TRAINING AND CONTACTED A PARENT OR GUARDIAN.

A DECISION MADE FOR SAFETY

Constable Courtney Clair called for a second ambulance to come to the problem home on Egan Street.
Paramedics arrived to take the drunken teen from the home for her safety from these intoxicated men.

WHAT THE VIDEO DOESN’T SHOW

Paramedics arrived and put the female teen on the ambulance gurney. The young female awoke. She lied to police about her age stating she was 21 and refused to identify herself.
The female began kicking at one male paramedic and grabbed the other female paramedic by the collar of her jacket trying to choke her.

When Constable Clair observed the female paramedic being choked, she immediately assisted and needed to restrain an arm quickly in order to stop this immediate threat.

The drunken teenage female would have gone in the gurney in her regular seat had she chosen not to escalate violence.

SHE NEEDED TO BE RESTRAINED

THE VIDEO

One arm was handcuffed to the gurney and Officer Clair was in the process of restraining the other arm when the teenager spit on her.

In the video, the officer is heard yelling, "That's enough," before appearing to hit the teen in the face.

The officer later yelled, "Do not spit on me, you do not spit on me," while appearing to forcefully push down on the person on the stretcher.

Officers got this female under control and the nasty, disgusting teenager was taken to hospital to sober up.

WHAT THE LOCAL MEDIA WON’T TELL YOU ABOUT TBPS USE OF FORCE TRAINING

CONSTABLE COURTNEY CLAIR FOLLOWED ALL THE APPROPRIATE TRAINING GIVEN TO HER

According to the use of force model, when an alteracation escalates to more violent behaviour, an Officer has the authority to use as much force as necessary to effect an arrest. Once that control has been made (preventing further assault of bodily fluids being used as a weapon) then the use of force ends.

One open hand strike is actually the very bottom of the force that is recommended, or would have been assessed appropriately to effect an arrest.

TWO CRIMINAL CHARGES LAID

The female teenager was charged with 2 counts of assault. One for spitting on Officer Clair and the other for trying to choke the female paramedic.

BUT ALL CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST THE TEEN WERE WITHDRAWN WITH NO EXPLANATION AFTER THE VIDEO WAS SHARED ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

The paramedic and Officer were not consulted about the withdrawal of charges.

Local media didn’t bother to ask because they don’t care if our front line first responders are assaulted.

TEENAGER ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY ON SOCIAL MEDIA FOR HER BAD DRUNK NIGHT.

After the video began gathering attention, the teenager took to social media to admit her behaviour was not acceptable and stated that she wishes this never happened. She just wants to be left alone. She had a bad drunken night.

ALVIN FIDDLER’S BLAME GAME & MISDIRECTED OUTRAGE.

And as usual, Nishnawbe Aski Grand Chief Alvin Fiddler saw the video and started his usual crap about how bad Thunder Bay Police are.

But Alvin doesn’t question why a 17 year old girl from Summer Beaver is drunk and passed out in a house full of grown drunk indigenous men when she’s supposed to be attending school in Thunder Bay.

Alvin Fiddler likes to blame anyone but himself. And he’s really good at whining. Instead of praising hardworking Thunder Bay Police Officers for coming to the safety of these drunk females, Alvin chose to blame them. He’s not a very good Grand Chief.

CRAPPY LEADERSHIP

And Police Chief Sylvie Hauth is much like Alvin Fiddler. 

So when Alvin Fiddler started his usual blame game, Police Chief Sylvie Hauth played right along.

THROWING A HARDWORKING TBPS OFFICER UNDER THE BUS.

The Police Chief has a real ineffective leadership model of treating hardworking Officers like crap. She has her bus warmed up all the time and is constantly looking to throw an Officer under the bus.

THIS TIME IT WAS HARDWORKING TBPS CONSTABLE COURTNEY CLAIR.

A decision was made by the TBPS Chief to lay Police Service Act charges against Constable Courtney Clair.

BAD LEADERS IGNORE FACTS AND MAKE BAD DECISIONS

Even though Police Chief Sylvie Hauth had all the witness statements from paramedics and police that night regarding the unruly conduct of this drunk teenager, she chose to lay blame on a single Officer.

INSTEAD OF STANDING UP FOR HER OFFICERS AND PRAISING THEM FOR MAKING SURE THIS VULNERABLE INDIGENOUS TEEN WAS SAFELY REMOVED, THE CHIEF REVVED UP HER BUS AND FLOORED IT TOWARDS COURTNEY CLAIR.

BAD DECISIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES

The Chief’s decision was a huge waste of time and resources. Over a year and a half of dragging this unsubstantiated fiasco out.
It affects the morale of all Officers who work hard for TBPS. They see how their Chief operates the bus and it ain’t pretty.

WHY WON’T THE DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS AT TBPS OR HIS LAZY BUDDIES IN LOCAL MEDIA TELL YOU THE TRUTH?

They aren’t interested in telling the truth. They are interested in getting taxpayer dollars and projecting false narratives on the public. Lazy Leith, Dumb Doug and the CBC really don’t do well with the truth and facts. They prefer to tell lies like Officers are racist and non professional. They spew this narrative as often as they can.

THEY WON’T TELL YOU THAT THE CHARGES WERE WITHDRAWN BECAUSE THE EVIDENCE THE CHIEF HAD IN THE BEGINNING OF THIS FIASCO DIDN’T SUPPORT CHARGES.

A hearing would have exposed all this evidence and Police Chief Hauth would have been exposed....AGAIN...as a very bad decision maker. And she knows it.

THE BAD EFFORT TO TRY MAKE HERSELF LOOK GOOD

In an effort to save face, the Chief says disciplinary action was taken instead. But she won’t tell the public what that is. And she won’t let anyone else tell either. That’s how the Chief operates. She must’ve have learned this style of crappy communications from the lazy Director of Soy Communications at TBPS.

EXPECT MORE OF THIS IN THE FUTURE

The Chief isn’t really about learning from mistakes or accepting responsibility.

WE SHOULD ALL BE THANKING OFFICER COURTNEY CLAIR AND THE OTHER OFFICERS FOR THEIR ACTIONS THAT NIGHT.

WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE NOW AT CHIEF HAUTH’S LEADERSHIP AND PUBLIC DECEIT?
