CaledoniaWakeUpCall.com has just posted photos and an editorial called, ‘The Arrest of Kyle Hagan for being ‘White‘ in connection with the outrageous arrest of Caledonia resident Kyle Hagan during the demonstration on Dec 01/07 that turned ugly when native smokeshack thugs launched unprovoked attacks on peaceful demonstrators. Kyle was charged with ‘Obstructing Police.’
I saw what happened that day, and I will also testify that Kyle was standing quietly on the road when Sergeant Sloan came up to him, spoke to him for a moment, and then arrested him.
Sergeant Sloan is very same officer who witnessed the assault on me and my flag at the very beginning of the protest and refused to arrest or even identify those who attacked me. When I demanded that he arrest them, he told me to ‘Get back.’
Oh yes, Sergeant Sloan will definitely be the target of lawsuits and complaints.
Call me Kyle. I’d be happy to explain how the Police Act and Human Rights complaint processes work.
CALL IN THE RCMP!
The fact that charges still haven’t been dropped against Kyle is yet another sign that the RCMP need to be brought in to take over the tainted, so-called investigation into the events of Dec 1st, and into how the OPP handled it.
Thanks to Fantino’s vicious defamation about Gary McHale on Nov 09/07 and his pronouncement in an OPP media release – before any real investigation had begun – that we were responsible for the violence, the OPP are simply not capable of conducting a fair, independent investigation.

Information WANTED – Please Help
Be sure to see the CWUC feature: Information WANTED . We need your help to identify people who may have commited acts of violence against us and/or police officers on Dec 1/07.
Apparently, the OPP seem to be having a hard time identifying and/or charging them, including the woman who incited the violence with a bogus assault charge against Gary McHale. Since she filed a police report, you wouldn’t think it’d be that hard, would you?
