I wonder if he was talking about LaLoche. Nope Sucker River.

"If you are a front line officer and you begin to hate the people you police you need to move because that's not why you signed up."

Easy to say, but places that are under constant siege usually breed this sort of attitude after awhile. LaLoche is a community where whitey is not welcome. I did some work up there a few years ago and we were warned that the local Gangsta's were coming out to rob. They showed up, but pulled back when a few of the workers were bearing arms. They also had the RCMP Detachment under siege.

Lol....too funny. Though this should be in the dumb, stupid and just plain ignorant cop thread. I do wonder though, if a cop had posted the same thing about the people of Barnwell or Foremost, would he still be considered racist?

Maybe, if his name was Loa Ying or Troy Twofeathers.

Maybe to you but you see racist everywhere. That's too bad but it's probably why you consider yourself disadvantaged.

Don't be silly, I don't see racists everywhere.

I'm not even convinced Anthony is a racist. Probably just stupid.

Again, don't be silly. I don't consider myself disadvantaged. That's just something you made up.

Probably because you admittedly don't get out enough.

I love how you want to talk about me though, I really appreciate how much you love and adore me.

Don't be silly. Of course you do.

As much as I'd love to spend some time counselling you this morning, the golf course is calling. TTYL

He probably should hit the coffee first.

I too have been up to Laloche on business (though years ago now)
many times, and it was an adventure (negatively) every time. It was
one of the weirdest places I'd been ever.

Maybe the racism and derogatory nature with which natives have been treated and thought of for so long is coming to an end.

Ya, we were shot at on our way into Placer Dome's portal at Pickle Lake.

Even the fuel tankers were targeted.

It happens when people feel they're getting the poopy end of the stick.

I'm sure there is a lot of animosity on both sides, probably most it is felt to be justified. Perhaps even most of it is, based on their experiences. Still, holding onto that will not benefit anybody, just keeps the same wheel going around. In other words, both "sides" are getting what they give and both sides need to give better if they want something better.

That said, it is the mandate of the RCMP to maintain order and, whether one can understand where the sentiment comes from or not, this is something more than just a 'heat of the moment' angry thought. It takes at least some time to log in Facebook and post a message, and if an individual whose job it is to help maintain order can carry that sentiment around with him long enough to do that, then he's carrying it around all the time and will be ineffective in his job, at minimum. He should be transferred out, in my opinion.

Umm, they drop off drunks on the highway to freeze to death, they taser old people and young kids, they beat up people at peaceful rallies, but they get reprimanded for racist remarks? Something screwy going on.

Check his logs, maybe he is getting the worst patrols more often than he should. The country must be running pretty smooth if this is a headline. lol

Racist remarks or venting frustration? Ever been to northern Sask? Is it a civilized place. Are tribal indifferences racist? Is it all one big happpy family right but for some reaason the Dene hate the Cree and the Chippewans feel shafted and disadvanted by both Cree and Dene.

It's a f-cked up very large chunk of Canada..

What would you do to settle the indifference hatred and jealousy?

Get two differnt Reservations at the same rodeo and not all the action takes place in front of the grandstands. Makes the dance after more than a little exciting. Cops come in at first light, lol. Rest of the year is pretty mild except for the cowboys, they just move the party to the closest bar.

Bar? Most north Sask rezes are dry.

Sounds as bad as some northern Alberta reserves.

TeePee Creek is halfway between Horse Lake and Sturgeon Lake, GP is the closest bar and is within one beer of the Rodeo grounds. That is the range that most of the Calgary Stampede stock comes from so the bulls and such are as bad as you can find. Horse Lake owns the bar in Hyth. Slave Lake has a huge bar beside the highway.

I had to sleep in a jail cell of one reserve in BC. It was the only safe place for a white guy.

It's a mixed bag in the north. In the NWT reserves like Rae or Edzo are extremely poor and the people are very descent. Fort Providence just north of the McKenzie River has a bar called the Snowshoe Inn. I went there with a couple for a few drinks after we were stranded because of the forest fires. He was from Detroit and she was from Australia by the way, stranded travelers on their way to the Blues Festival in Yellowknife. Anyhow, Fort Providence is a Native community and we were the only non Natives there except for one big white guy who was the most annoying of the bunch.

We were welcomed and treated with nothing but respect by these folks. It was a rather fun night, except for the bugs outside and the stink of smoke. We sang Karaoke, I did Johnny Cash and the fellow named Khari, did an explosive rendition of Stand by Me. He was in a band called: The Sojourners.

Anyway, their impression of the people of the north. "Everyone up here is so nice." And perhaps that might sound naive, but on this evening we were treated as friends, travelers who were stranded and it was a night to remember.

Here they are, what a great pair.


And I present to you: The Sojourners

Sounds like an excellent night out!

The one thing humans seem to always forget is that, as animals, we DO read body language and subtle cues from each other and if there is respect and kindness in your heart it shows and is obvious to all. The reverse is true also and it's an emotion we seem to think we can lie about and think others can't see the lie.

Santa Claus and Jesus would still be shot at in sh-tloads of northern communities just for being white.
