Watchdogs fear RCMP raid of blogger’s home ‘suspicious’

VANCOUVER — Government and police watchdog groups are concerned a police raid at the home of a man connected with a whistle-blower Internet blog targeting RCMP corruption was politically motivated.

About a half-dozen officers, using a warrant for defamatory libel, seized several computers and cellphones from the man, who helped to set up the Re-Sergeance Alliance blog site. He also recently assisted the Mounties in finding online photos of Coquitlam, BC, RCMP Cpl. Jim Brown engaged in graphic S&M activities.
