    Having been present during a SWAT'ing type event at my brother's 45th birthday, initiated by a neighbour who was for some reason never charged nor even questioned regarding their highly suspect actions and motives, I can say from first hand experience that police sometimes act in ways which show little, if any regard for 'civilians.' Especially children. I won't go into details, just saying that it was one hell of an awful turn of events during an otherwise splendidly happy birthday party with a lot of family present. Police acted like idiots. Their token social worker was no better. We got close to no information, just a big black spot on the evening. Police do what they like, seemingly taking the position that it's better do barge in then make apologies later... only they never apologized.

    Seems rather strange behaviour. just because someone said she is depressed and has firearms and license they barge in aggressively and handcuff her and cease her belongings?And then her medical reports show that there is no history of depression yet noone believes that for a long time? Doesnt sound right at all. Then again who knows with this "justice" system. I hope the story is true, in a way, and is not being made up to sell something.

It would have cost twice as much if we we'd gone to trial. Instead the crown finally realized how stupid the scenario was and dropped all charges. But not before our names got dragged through the mud.

    As for legal repercussions to get our money back....we were told we had none. However, we wanted to go after the OPP and not the accuser. Anyways, be careful out there, the system is deeply flawed when it comes to the falsely accused. At best you can hope for an "oops, sorry about that".
    If not your guns then what was this about?

    Until you are the one stepped on, go ahead and call BS. Canadians can not and will not believe how wrong the system is.

    And then there is people with mental illness and injuries afraid to seek help, because fear they are going to loose a hobby/life style that makes them happy.

    Pretty much what I thought when I read this. A very poorly written advertisement.
    Everything always works out in the end.

    I can relate. Had an ex 12-15 years ago did something similar to myself. I had swat showing up after my ex told them I wanted a shootout with the cops. Took me almost a year to get my property and licence returned.

    Sickening how people can do this. Reminds me of politicians with all the lies

    Nice to see the police officers treat someone with alleged "mental health issues" with such compassion... think they need a psyc eval and their own set of charges... and the department needs a judicial review.

    Do you sell alien attack coverage for home and car? I saw a bright flashing light in the sky over the airport, think I'm going to need it.

    Can you send me copy of "Canada's Mental Health Act"? I can't seem to find one anywhere...
