Edmonton: Shooting of a cop is no time for politics

Brian LilleyArchive

Playing politics with guns. Playing politics with lives.

On Monday Edmonton lost a brave man, Constable Daniel Woodall was killed while trying to execute a warrant for the arrest of a man wanted for hate crimes.

Instead of arresting Norman Raddatz, Woodall was shot by him.

It is a sad day for the city but some politicians can't help themselves and so Mayor Don Iveson stepped forward and said this showed the gun registry was needed.

I explain why this is wrong politically and wrong on the facts.

“Bow to your inbred “royals” and corrupt politicians, slave. You know not what courage and honor are.”
Holy Mackerel! Sounds like you’re quoting the lines from that big-boobed broad in the Game of War ads on Hockey Night in Canada.

I was right, all these leftists have that deer in the lights look on their faces. I think they call that look “stunned!”

Bow to your inbred “royals” and corrupt politicians, slave. You know not what courage and honor are. Typical Canadian cowards who would rather take up arms against their American cousins for daring to say they were Free, than risk the temporary discomfort of joining them in Liberty. This is why people are leaving the serf reservation, tired of being around a bunch of cowardly, overtaxed wimps who’ve stuck their head in the sand for the last 250 years.

And because some goons out there use Magna Carta to violate others, violate the Rule of Law… Does not mean that my Lawful Rights are null and void… Does not mean that I by stretched association am worthy of being surveilled, harassed and intimidated by the those who claim I am a subject. You Sir may have your opinions, but when push comes to shove, some folks are willing to die for liberty, will not tolerate their Lawful Rights being violated with out just cause.

“Please don’t misrepresent the Great Charter three days from it’s 800th anniversary. "
There you go again. I didn’t misrepresent anything. Here is my quote again:
“Well, for these self-styled “freemen”, the Magna Carta apparently does permit them to take over people’s property.”
It is the self-styled freemen who “apparently” misrepresent the MC.
commented 2015-06-12 13:01:20 -0400
Magna Carta says if someone owes a debt that is unpaid, you may take their property, not arbitrarily declare it your’s without any such unmet contract. Please don’t misrepresent the Great Charter three days from it’s 800th anniversary.

Well, for these self-styled “freemen”, the Magna Carta apparently does permit them to take over people’s property.
Any populist movement (on the left or right) has the potential to attract loonies. Only a select few attract outright anarchists.
commented 2015-06-12 09:52:44 -0400
You posted a link to a CBC article, not me. The word “freeman” only comes up in the media when the story involves real injury. All the folks arrested where there is no injury, you never hear about them being labeled “freemen” in the media… Yet some violent squatter gets the brand on the front-page.

So no, abiding by the Rule of Law, by Right of Magna Carta does NOT involve taking over someone’s property, doesn’t matter if your CBC article told you so.
commented 2015-06-12 09:17:31 -0400
It is not “my” CBC hit-piece. But it was “your” statements.
And I didn’t paint liberty-lovers with any brush.
commented 2015-06-12 08:45:41 -0400
Jamie MacMaster, taking over someone else’s property violates Law, as there is real injury for the property owner… Glad you got a chance to post your CBC hit-piece here, painting liberty-lovers with the same brush as some deranged common criminal. DO NO HARM TO ANOTHER OR THEIR PROPERTY, UNLESS IN SELF-DEFENSE is the ONLY Law, everything else is contractual legislation. The goof you’ve mentioned in this story is a criminal, did harm to another and their property, the liberal media saw a great opportunity to pimp the “freeman” association and scare people away from leaving their carbon tax Agenda 21 reservation.

“…it (freemen on the land) espouses one Law for all, equal rights, for real injury to be proven before depriving an individual of their freedom…”

RICHARD VANDERLUBBE. It seems that you forgot to mention that it also involves taking over some else’s property. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/calgary-home-declared-embassy-by-freeman-1.1863921
commented 2015-06-11 12:37:44 -0400
My guess is that the guy was already under investigation for being a so-called “Freeman”, as it espouses one Law for all, equal rights, for real injury to be proven before depriving an individual of their freedom… Very dangerous views for the those pathetic treasonous fools who would prosecute people for thought crimes without proving real injury. Seems to me there is no “Freemen-On-The-Land” group or organization, just a label that statists throw on those who embrace the ideals of self-responsibility and personal liberty in the absence of injury/harm. Rather than just arrest the guy who steals electricity and sells pot to kids, they go after the guy who grows it in his backyard, organic, smokes it with his consenting adult friends after dinner. Then they steal his property via “civil asset forfeiture”. This is why the so-called “Freeman”/Liberty movement has gone from gaining traction to being stably entrenched; The state has victimized too many people for acting within their Lawful Rights. I am not glad that police had to die, but the next time you walk up on someone’s porch with a bulletproof vest and a glock, uninvited, to suppress Lawful Rights, don’t say you didn’t know what happens…
commented 2015-06-11 12:01:08 -0400
Exactly Richard, hate crime units are created to monitor so called hate crimes, particularly those on the internet. Post anything that can be viewed as “negative” about protected “minorities”, which includes Muslims, gays, women, ect….and you could be under investigation. The person who headed it in BC was actually fired from the OPP, so they select the “best and brightest” for such duties.
commented 2015-06-11 10:44:24 -0400
Constable Woodall is said to have moved to Canada for a better life… Yet he took up the sword to arrest folks for thought crimes and exercising their freedom of the press rights… Same garbage as England is known for engaging in. Live by the sword, die by the sword.
commented 2015-06-11 10:27:34 -0400
I owe a “debt of gratitude” to a bunch of unionized suppressors of free-speech? A “hate crime” investigation? This is why you clowns went to this man’s door with the intent of entering his home??? When police “officers” start abiding by the Constitution these senseless killings will stop.
commented 2015-06-10 19:32:49 -0400
Unfortunately it is time for politics – as evidenced by the mayor himself – mind you his fake tears at the apology were well done.

A good kick in the nuts might help him.
commented 2015-06-10 17:03:53 -0400
Hate crimes? What – that he hated the family he was stalking? Just great. Now that a hate crimes officer is killed, we will see the RCMP and local police forces stepping up their Orwellian hate crime investigations.
commented 2015-06-10 16:10:01 -0400
Wow, a rookie mistake by a young mayor.
commented 2015-06-10 14:50:20 -0400
Edmonton (Redmonton?). Centre of leftyism in Alberta. Fact: Criminals and Nutbars generally do not register firearms. The Long Gun Registry will not solve this. More background into this particular Nutbar needs to be researched including links to Freemasons. If that proves out, then therin lies the answer. Deepest condolences to the Woodall family!
commented 2015-06-10 14:03:36 -0400
This mayor has absolutely no class what so ever! We the public do not ever want anther money pit like the gun registry. It was a useless waste of time and money.
commented 2015-06-10 11:33:45 -0400
Leftists like this mayor can’t help themselves.
When in the spotlight they will spew lefty garbage no matter how no class it comes across.
commented 2015-06-10 08:57:50 -0400
This is a great example of how all-consuming Liberal pathology can be.

Here is this politician, obviously deeply affected by events, yet, at a time when most humans would be reflecting only on the loss and the dead man’s family, his internal urges to find a government solution and engage in a bit of self-promotion over-ride decency, decorum and common sense.
commented 2015-06-10 01:55:36 -0400
At least the scumbag weasel Iveson apologized today for his comments on the gun registry but is proving himself to be an incompetent Mayor on many fronts, that said he is still much better than Mandel who would have called for an abolition on all guns everywhere, except for the police who he outfitted with assault rifles. One suspects the EPS did check to see if he had a Possession and Acquisition License, since they asked his neighbor if he hunts but then again criminals don’t get a PAL or buy guns from places that ask for a valid License.
My condolences to the family of Constable Daniel Woodall and I hope Sgt. Jason Harley makes a full recovery as soon as he can.

Sometimes its embarrassing to be a resident in Edmonton.
commented 2015-06-09 23:15:54 -0400
the Edmonton mayor is a left ideologue weasel , who also lies. His apology is a lie – he meant what he said. So stop the lie Iveson – you sad sack liberal mouthed ……..
commented 2015-06-09 22:44:50 -0400
I wonder how much folding money was in the big brown envelope that was sent over to Mayor Don Iveson’s home before he made the statement. Those liberal pigs never quit.
commented 2015-06-09 21:55:52 -0400
the gun registry is and was a political fares, we had and still have a system in place for every single fire arm in this country
you can not buy a gun until you get a Win card and that is in place now and has been in place for a very long time.
but we like to duplicate every thing in this country and waste tax pays money.
commented 2015-06-09 21:27:15 -0400
I would like to know how a gun registry would have pervented this.
commented 2015-06-09 21:21:21 -0400
Iveson is a prime example of the pathology infecting political leaders/leadership today. It’s why our political leaders offer little more than a celebration of mediocrity or an abusive expansion of the state..

Iveson – what a stupid, stupid remark to make before all the facts are in – it reveals only a myopic partisan agenda, not a reasoned social solution.
commented 2015-06-09 20:59:50 -0400
Shame on you Mayor Iveson for dancing on Const. Woodall grave to grandstand your anti freedom left wing agenda.
