Native extremists are preparing to launch an attack on the city of Brantford according to the latest report from the Expositor. “They’re going to have one hell of a fight now,” said Steve Powless, who spoke on behalf of the protesters. “This is going to be Caledonia Part 2. They don’t understand what they’re in for.”
Mr. Powless was recently quoted calling for “war” if Brantford police tried to enforce the interim injunction issued to prevent Natives from illegally occupying land and interfering with lawful construction on private property.
It stands to reason then that after the events of this morning, an occupation and subsequent attack on the innocent people of Brantford is imminent at least in the mind of Mr. Powless, but what exactly happened to trigger this outrage?
According to Brantford police, two concrete trucks bringing loads to the Kingspan development site in Brantford were blocked by an as yet unidentified Native this morning at approximately 8:30am. As Kingspan is one of the sites named in the interim Injunction, the Brantford police had no choice but to confront the man when the trucks returned around 9:45am, and as they approached to arrest him, he punched one of the officers in the face.
Most living in our society understand this to be unacceptable behavior and would expect to be arrested for attacking a cop, but members of this group of Native extremists who believe themselves to be superior to the rest of us and above any law they wish to break are having a tantrum that any police force would dare to enforce the law when there’s a Native involved.
A statement released earlier this evening from Derek McElveny, Chief of Police, Brantford Police Service followed the brand of rhetoric that’s been coming out of Fantino since his appointment as commissioner which is no surprise to me as I’ve seen the Brantford Police in “action”.
With the apparent spokesman for the Natives calling for “war”, the chief of police for Brantford talking about land claims negotiation, the City Council calling for the military and useless OPP to be put on standby, and the “Haldimand Tract Good Neighbor Coalition” calling for appeasement, the small group of us that are left calling for the end of race based policing are left wondering what’s going to happen next.Jeff Parkinson Caledonia Wakeup Call
