Cop or therapist? Police advised to show “sensitivity” to weapon-wielding maniacs

David MenziesMission Specialist

The executive director of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health-funded Empowerment Council is advising police to show “sensitivity” if they come across a weapon-wielding maniac — confirming that the inmates are indeed running the asylum

Instead of the copper yelling, “Drop your weapon!” the officer should gently ask the offender, “Can I help you?” as if the cop is an employee at Sears or something.

If that doesn’t work, she suggests the follow-up query of: “Is there something we can do?” And if that fails, then the cop should gently say, “Let’s talk.”

Yeah, you wouldn’t want to yell and trigger somebody into having a bad day, especially if he’s got his finger on the trigger of a Glock.

Watch as I tell you more about how this out of touch female Executive Director who I’m betting has never taken a ride-along with cops in the wee hours on the wrong side of the tracks, is advising our cops.

Darlene Stimson where did you get the idea they were mentally ill? Did the lawsuit claim that? LMAO!
And i could kill you with a table leg, as could many others. Now go sacrifice yourself if you get the chance, others will do what they have to.

“Actually…the consumer/survivor community…drugs…gunned down…only carrying…Oh yeah, the officer was really in danger from a fucking TABLE LEG!”

Well Darlene, your bleeding-heart, lefty/liberal language makes it clear where you’re coming from…so when you’ve spent years in a patrol car with a side arm on your hip, dealing with the scum of the Earth, and ‘normal’ people at their worst, everyday, then and only then would you have any valid commentary concerning this issue…hateful, angry, self righteous and condemnatory comments based on ignorance, like yours, are invalid!
Stick to the Fake News organizations, they love printing that delusional lefty/liberal cop-hating nonsense for their delusional readers…

Darlene Stimson——Thousands of innocent people have been murdered by some nut swinging baseball bats and table legs.

Actually this Executive Director has been working with the police for many years trying to save the lives of members of the consumer/survivor community by improving the training they are getting before they hit the streets. Not sure what drugs you’re on but none of the mentally ill people who have been gunned down here were carrying guns. MacIsaac was only carrying a table leg and was shot 12 seconds after the cop arrived on the scene. TWELVE SECONDS.
Oh yeah, the officer was really in danger from a fucking TABLE LEG!

Insanity appears to be contagious!

How about the core strength on Putin? I’ve seen beer kegs that looked softer than his middle. Time for my wifes crunches (so she’ll stop drooling at him, not that i’m in that bad shape, but comrade, holy crap!)

I wish the police would realize that they are to be sacrificed on the altar of progressive insanity as well and stop doing as these idiots want.

When this directors life is under threat she can test out her ideas, cops should not be guinea pigs for idiots like this.

Everyone realizes that in the regular, normal population , there are harmless people and there are also brutal murderers. It is no different in the population with mental problems. A murderer has a different DNA than the rest of people with mental problems.
Two months ago an 80 year old man for no reason killed another man in their old age home. He did so because he had that certain DNA.
Shoot the Weapon-wielding Maniac dead in order to save the cop’s life and save the taxpayer money.
Then Trudeau can use the savings to bring in more US refugee rejects, that will go straight on welfare.

When is the politically correct going to stop interfering with the police duties. They are not social workers, they are cops with guns & they’re not there to molly coddle or to hand out balloons, so get out of their way. This director has been in her field of work far too long & what she sees on a daily basis with addicts & the mentally ill is now affecting her own sanity. The cop will talk once the culprit is disarmed if need be, but there won’t be much necessity for talk if the cop gets his head blown off first.

If they don’t like what the police are doing, let them send out social workers to these calls. See if they change their tunes when enough social workers are shot to death with illegal firearms, hacked to death by machetes, etc. Meanwhile, the social workers can try out all the touchy, feely catch phrases they can muster.

Weapon wielding maniac? in between the lines it sounds like hands of muslims.

Jan G commented -“I’m starting to think that Canada has been playing us for fools.”

You aren’t alone – there are a growing mass of middle aged, working class people who are struggling where there parents did not – realizing the Canadian dream has been a huge lie. Having the right attitude, voting the right way and being loyal and subservient to an ever increasing list of official put-downs and larcenies – has brought many to the conclusion that their democracy, freedoms, ability to get ahead, their and their kids futures have been stolen.

As official cultural and economic genocide sweeps into the sleepy smug neighborhoods of the nation in the form of social strife, entitlement cuts, energy poverty, restricted mobility and censorship of complaints, a seething resentment grows toward the political class who have sold us out to globalist wolves under the pretense of building utopia. I suggest reading “the day of the locusts” again to see the parallels in cultures who realize the utopian dream has been a lie.

Why do videos on the rebel always have to cut to some tv show, movie, or a song? It’s really distracting.

I’m starting to think that Canada has been playing us for fools. We’ve been now brainwashed to be more tolerant of and recognize mental health issues. Bell Media has been promoting this for how long now? But, meanwhile, the Liberals are categorizing terrorists etc as having mental health issues.
Now, legitimate mental health has been contaminated and distorted. I guess enough fell for it to believe it.

I agree…!! Sensitivity on the trigger is required by any good marksman to execute a good shot.!!

Cop: Blam Blam!! – now can we talk?

Canadian hug-a-thug justice – on drugs…

Once the Police Unions hear of these policies, their members will be informed to ignore them. To follow these rules would would definitely be an unsafe work site.
Much like Firemen are told not to go in a burning building unless it is safe. When is a burning building safe??
