Ok so if you read the Hamilton Police complaints post lets see what Hamilton Police Services managed to do after all the complaints were substantial and well documented. So here is the best that Hamilton Police Services could do,, and it will make you laugh when I explain a key point at the end of it!

Ok you are you ready to see why I almost fell off my chair reading this reply to my complaint?
Here it is section 59(4) doesn't exist it is not anywhere in The police Services Act and here is section 58 - 60
Here is where the law is located on the net:http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/statutes/english/elaws_statutes_90...
(3) In dealing with a complaint as provided by subsection (2), the
complainant, for the purposes of this Part, is the person or entity that
brought the complaint in the other province or territory and the person
or body that prepared the report. 2009, c. 30, s. 52.
Independent Police Review Director to review complaints
59. (1) The Independent Police Review Director shall review every complaint made to
him or her by a member of the public under this Part, and shall
determine whether the complaint is about the policies of or services
provided by a police force or about the conduct of a police officer.
2007, c. 5, s. 10.
Independent Police Review Director to refer, retain
(2) Subject to section 60, the Independent Police Review Director shall ensure that
every complaint reviewed under subsection (1) is referred or retained
and dealt with in accordance with section 61. 2007, c. 5, s. 10.
Power of Independent Police Review Director to refuse
60. (1) The Independent Police Review Director may, in accordance with this
section, decide not to deal with a complaint made to him or her by a
member of the public under this Part. 2007, c. 5, s. 10.
So what does that say about the ability of level of Detective Sargent Randy Graham's knowledge of the law,,,, not much shows incompetence like it really shows a ton of incompetence missed the mark by a whole section!
So did Detective Sargent Randy even read through my complaint I really don't think so it shows a total lack of professionalism as well as his lack of intent to ensure that the citizens of Hamilton are treated properly by the public service institution he represents.
Now the same set of documents were sent as well to the Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD). The OIPRD’s role is to make sure that public complaints against police in Ontario
are dealt with fairly, efficiently and effectively.
Here is their reply which amounts to passing the buck because as the reply states the events are in their analysis as "ongoing issues" which fall under the investigative authority of the Ontario Civilian Police Commission. The OIPRD knows that some of the events fall within their enabling legislation but don't want to do their job it appears, see events on August 13 in the Sopinka Courthouse as well as the acts on July 24 as well as the ones done on October 8, all this year.

Re: Public Complaint- Hamilton Police Service
OIPRD Compliint Number: 100001851
The Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD) has reviewed your complaint concerning the alleged conduct of member of the Hamilton Police Service.
The OIPRD is aware of your concerns. Unfortunately, the OIPRD does not have the authority to deal with your complaint. We cannot proceed with your complaint as the incidents you have referred to are ongoing issues that predate October 19, 2009, the date on which the legislation that established the OIPRD was proclaimed in force.
Under Section 98(1) of the Police Services Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.15, complaints made under the old Part V shall continue to be dealt with in accordance with the old Part V. 2007, c.5, s.10.
We understand that you have submitted a request for review with the Ontario Civilian Police Commission. Any submissions with respect to your concerns about the investigation conducted into your original complaint should be directed to the Ontario Civilian Police Commission.
I regret that we cannot help you at this time. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

Yup when Hamilton Police break the law they are held to the highest standards. Investigated by their own brothers and sisters in blue ,, not like that would be a conflict of interest now would it? It's not like Hamilton Police Services have a vested interest in ensuring that the veneer of highest moral and ethical standards are beyond reproach are they? why it says so in this part of their mission statement:
Our values and ethics express the commonly held beliefs that we must strive for in our daily operations. These beliefs govern our work behaviour and actions.
In pursuit of our mission, we believe in:
Relentless pursuit of offenders
Education and innovation
Sensitivity to victims of crime
Performing with integrity
Commitment to quality service
Here's their website so you can verify what I have said. :http://www.hamiltonpolice.on.ca/HPS/AboutHPS/VisionMissionValuesEth...
So apparently applying the law in a discriminatory manner keeps their ethical standards high ( think there must be some contraband missing from the evidence locker) and it is acting with integrity when intimidating threatening and breaking the rule of law covers your mistakes,,, at least when it involves Hamilton Police Services,,,
More to follow next post lets have a quick chat about Justices of the peace complaints
