Why the community wasn’t warned about Aaron Driver… Oh Goody

Police, lawyers and terror experts say there are both legal and operational reasons why people in Strathroy, Ont., weren’t warned that known ISIS sympathizer Aaron Driver was living in their community.

The revelation that Driver, who was killed in a confrontation with police on Wednesday, was suspected of planning an attack has sparked anger and concern in the small southwestern Ontario town.

  • The RCMP didn’t think he was much a threat, hence they were not monitoring him.

    Keep in mind the climate that denies Islamist violence, if it at all exists, is the result of Islamism.

      The RCMP are busy with other things.

      Like making sure the new hires look a certain way and who they spend their time in the bedroom with.

        Along with declaring what were always legal firearms suddenly illegal and busting down the doors of legal and law-abiding gun owners. Here in BC they are also busy setting up traps trying to catch anyone without a seatbelt or using a phone. That explains why when we have real crime, you are lucky if they respond within 24 hours.

          A woman out here in the country was parked in a general store lot. She got into her car, started the engine then proceed to fasten her belt. The trap mountie then wandered over and gave her a ticket for not having a seat belt on BEFORE she started her car.
          But don’t worry about local islamists, we got you covered where it counts.

      Hey, I think you may be blaming the wrong party here. It’s not entirely the RCMP’s responsibility to decide who’s too dangerous to be walking the streets.

      It’s the Trudeau Government, the Public Safety Minister, a judge or justice of the peace, the crown and the defendant’s lawyer who ultimately determine the degree to which limits are placed on a defendant by means of a Peace Bond.

      All you have to do is listen to the various comments made by the Public Safety Minister, Ralph Goodale, to understand that the whole process is based on an a faulty assumption that the defendant is able to be rehabilitated and reintegrated back into society.




      You have to ask the following questions:

      How many Canadians will have to be murdered in a terror attack before the Trudeau Government realizes that Peace Bonds, rehabilitation and reintegration are pipe dreams when dealing with radical Islamist?

      How many times will Canadians have to listen to the same old Trudeau Government narrative that their thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to the families and friends of those who lost their lives as a result of a radical Islamist terror attack?

        You raise a valid and accurate point. Still even though all the blame does not belong to the RCMP, they are far from blameless concerning putting the protection of Canadians first.

      • The RCMP screwed up Air India and barely caught this in time. I can appreciate that PM Trulander loves him some terrorists but that is no excuse. At some point, some civil servant is either going to have stand up for the public or disappear.

    I hear the reason they didn’t worry about the danger to the taxi driver in their take down of our Canuck jihadi was because he’d be a Muslim bien sur and ergo perforce an expert in these little situations…
    You gotta make some hard decisions in the RCMP but this showed real professionalism.

    “He had every right to live in this community and by all accounts he lived in this community and led a quiet lifestyle,” said Jagoe.

    Well RCMP Sgt Jagoe, you must have missed the “accounts” of Harun Abdurahman gathering the materiel for two bombs. In fact, you did miss those accounts, didn’t you. Thank goodness for the FBI.

    Hmmm… I FEAR you because you have a gun, but I do not RESPECT you. You haqve to EARN my respect.
