Ottawa police hire high-risk Somali cop — DESPITE warnings about his past

Rebel Staff
 

Somalia is one of the worst places in the world. Life expectancy is barely 50 years old. Only 37 per cent of people can read and write. But Canada takes in Somalis by the thousand.

How’s that working out? A lot get mixed up in the drug trade. And remember the Somali who went into a Toronto military recruitment office and started hacking with a machete?

The Somali terrorist group Al Shabaab has called for attacks on the West Edmonton Mall. They attacked the mall in Kenya three years ago, killing 67 people.

Then a few weeks ago, a Somali man in Ottawa named Abdirahman Abdi was allegedly sexually harassing a female customer at a coffee shop. Abdi died after his confrontation with the police. Some reports say he was autistic. It’s under investigation, but still, Black Lives Matter got involved.

The Ottawa police chief panicked.

On the very day that Somali suspect died, the police chief hired a Somali cop.

Christina Benson, the civilian hired by the Ottawa police to do a deep background check on prospective hires, told the police department he was unacceptable. I’ll tell you what she found out about him. But the chief went ahead and hired him anyway.

Benson was so shocked, she resigned.

And you know what? I bet this sort of thing happens all the time...

NEXT: My guest Raheem Kassam, Editor in Chief at Breitbart London, joins me to talk about a truly disturbing story:

A UK man has been sentenced to 180 hours unpaid work and other punishments, after posting comments said to be “grossly offensive” to Muslims.


THEN: We've been reporting on the Trudeau Liberals' jet-setting ways, spending your tax dollars to have personal parties in the sky.

TheRebel.media has also surveyed Canadians to see what they thought about this.

Aaron Wudrick of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation and I talk about the results of our exclusive poll, which you can see here:

PS: you can SEND A MESSAGE to Trudeau to cut out his big spending ways with our petition at SuperElite.ca

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

You have hypocritical left-wing special interest groups who only care about the race, gender or language spoken in hiring a person.

In this case you have an unqualified police officer and incompetent police chief because these groups constantly put pressure to hire people of their own non-white race or who speak French like themselves.

Hypocritical because they use terms like “diversity” and “reflect a bilingual country” to justify such hiring based on race or language, but hypocritically see no need for “diversity” in ever increasing non-white dominated professions, nor see any need for “reflecting a bilingual country” in French Gatineau Quebec, across the river from Ottawa.

Why allowing the hypocrisy and hiring based on race or languages spoken?

Because none of the conservative politicians or mainstream conservative media has an ounce of Donald Trump or Rob Ford in them who would not tolerate this, would not give a darn about being called a bigot or any demonstrations (adult tantrums) by these hypocrites that almost always result when they are not capitulated to.

Given this, is it any wonder why we are so desperate for such politically incorrect politicians, that we will support anyone one we a lot of flaws in them, like Trump and Ford

how many somalis in justins security detail….or would that disturb the gender equal balance of 9 men to 1 woman?

Perhaps , the Police Chief deserves a break . Odds are that Justin and his Lapdogs informed the Chief of Police that he had to hire a Somalian . " Hire the Best One you can Find" !!!!! So they did.

Bwahahahahahahaha! Blacks in canada are being surveilled are they, what a crock of shit.

- Caving into SJWs & terrorist front groups doesn’t appease them, they’ll just be back with more demands. The decision by Ottawa police is that we’re weak can be taken advantage of. They’re preparing the ground for the European style attacks to come.

- Another Facebook thought crime. Leaders (globalists) in the West just want absolute power as they overrun the West with Muslim extremists in order to eliminate Western Civilization.

- Trudeau is a spoiled trust fund kid & it’s showing. If he didn’t have the cover of the mainstream media he would never have been elected as an MP let alone as the Prime Minister.

Ottawa police equals the armed wing of the liberal party. This type of crap only proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

At the risk of getting things back on track, I’ll say that the type of interference Bordeleau pulled is common in virtually all of Canada’s large police forces. And the same thing happens in the promotional processes.

The upper echelons of police forces are stuffed full of officers who have played the political game: saying what needs to be said, and doing whatever needs to be done to get ahead. It is simply rotten old politics: the acquisition and retention of power. And. just like conventional politics, what is good for a career has no necessary connection with that which is good for the public.

I quit the same job eleven years ago for the same reasons. I went to work for the Ottawa Police as a background investigator for two or three years when I retired from policing. The last applicant file I worked on, a member of a minority group, was rife with interference from one of the “top brass”. I could not/did not recommend hiring the applicant, and the Staff/Sgt. in charge of the recruiting section backed me up.

Three weeks later he was reassigned to patrol division, and a new man took his place. The first email sent out by the new fellow had a banner proclaiming that the goal of the recruiting section was to reflect the diversity of the great community the police force served…or some such similar vomit.

I sent an email back saying that there was such an obvious difference between his goals and my goals – hiring only the best candidates – that I could not continue working for him. And that’s the last file I ever worked on.

I have said for years that, if it was publicly stated suggested that three-peckered Martians were terribly under-represented on our police forces, our Chiefs of Police would be beating the planetary bushes to be the first to find and hire one.

Keith Richards claims: “The Rebel, by the way, is also responsible for some healthy discussion.”

What do you consider “healthy discussion” to be?

Do you believe it?

I do not see why Drew Wakariuk should be singled out as being ignorant.

Many Rebel readers fall for the hype put out on this site.

You’re an INTERNET TROLL. Everyone on this site hates your fucking guts. Go blog where you belong – Torstar is a great site for you – you know, the place where they are all getting fired because no one reads their fucking crap??

Really asshole – get lost you piece of shit!!

NDP is a socialist who cares nothing about libertarian values. Name-calling is all he can do. And he cannot even do that without misspelling.

Rebelation Rebelation I don’t believe in splitting the right. I believe there should be an atheist friendly alternative to the traditional right because the fact is conservatives suck. I don’t advocate for ending access to abortion. I believe in limited government. Conservatives are also complete hypocrites in a lot of ways.

Oh, thanks for the correction. “Libertarian85 is a kook”.

Feel better?

Eat shit NDPsucks Reverting to name calling suggests that you are defensive and therefore find my opinion valid.

Hey everybody the proper way to spell it is kook not cook.

Libertarian85 gets accused of being a cook! and maybe with good reason. A cook might propose that the Conservatives have been failures. But what about the Libertarian Party of Canada? It does not take a cook to see their record.

Somalians have a history of crime and of good works in Canada. If a major police force can get a qualified Somalian officer, go for it.
commented 2016-08-10 02:44:00 -0400
Libertarian85. I suspect TheRebel doesn’t back the Libertarians, ‘cause there’s too many cooks, like you!
I mean you have nothing good to say about anybody on here, so if you think that little of the reporters, why would you want them on your team? Wouldn’t you be embarrassed? Yeah, too many cooks.
Besides, the Libertarians have good policies, BUT, they want to end all access to abortion, and while that may be a good policy, it’s too stark in today’s society, and they’d never get elected as a result. You’re just splitting the right.

I find it curious that this Somali fellow had filed an application to become a cop. Did he go through training? How did he do? Or he hadn’t got that far? WHY – did he apply to be a cop? Considering his attitude toward them, I feel safe saying he did it to have “equal power”. So he can push around instead of being pushed around (in his twisted mind). Do you think this guy will show restraint? Care about the law and ppl’s rights? A guy that clearly has no respect for the law? That came from a failed state where the gun rules? No doubt he thinks he’s clever. To get a gun and have power, simply become a cop. That’s how it’s done in this country, as he sees it. (I become cop, then I have power and nobody push me around, I show them!!) Oh yeah, this is going to end real bad, particularly for his first 100 victims til they’re forced to fire him. The Chief should be charged with Breach of Trust.

Notice to all Police Chiefs. The politicians are NOT your boss. The Criminal Code is your boss, and remember, nobody is above the law. So when a politician tells you to do something wrong, YOU ARREST THEM!!!

Dear Ezra: Why don’t you stop endorsing the Prgressive Coservative Party and Conservative Party Of Canada and Start endorsing Tim Moen and the Libertarians. Conservatives have a long history of failure. They still believe in locking up people who suffer from addiction and mental illness and building more prisons to put them in which displaces them so they’re released to the streets with nothing and can’t focus on obtaining housing because they’re too busy chasing they’re fix and causes my downtown Hamilton neighbourhood to be the way it is. Libertarians recognize the success of Portugal decriminalzing drug possession. Tim Moen is a man with real work experience unlike Trudumb. As for your staff Tiffany Gabbay is a boring redundant amateur native brainwashed by white people and too obvious to listen to. Brian Lilley is a boring hypocrite. Faith Goldy is a religious kook who looks like a pizza without makeup and Lauren Southern is phony. I believe the time she had urine thrown on her was staged and the time she was attacked in Paris by socialist wackos was also staged be cause they spoke english. Lats of all Gavin McInnes is a complete bird.

Ezra your a racist and a bullshit artist with his own weird agenda. Your most recent episode was cheap, misleading, slanderous, sloppy and all over the place. I live in downtown Hamilton which has a visible population of people from or have ancestry in Egypt, Somalia, Sudan, evil Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Iraq, Pakistan, and many others. Your an asshole for propagating stereotypes and hating on people for they’re place of origin or ancestry. You blame immigration for mass shootings comitted by born citizens. I can care less about everything you cited about Christina Benson’s background. He’s practically a perfect fit to serve in the police force. Many of them are scumbags anyway. You obviously do not belong in Toronto. Your fans are stupid, hateful, poorly educated, and poorly informed. Your only problem with Christina Benson is that he’s from Somalia. Your an asshole that just plain and simply hates people with dark skin. And for all my haters here’s a fun fact. Somalia is a country where sharia applies in personal status issues (such as marriage, divorce, inheritance, and child custody) not in criminal law. You are not the right person to address the issues you normally do because you fail to be unbiased and balanced. You dehumanize people for they’re place of ancestry. And your a smug loser with his own agenda.
