Perry has now spent 106 days in jail – for stepping up to the plate to protect children, and then daring to say he has lost faith in the justice system. This is the institutional response to allegations of childhood sexual abuse.
I have no idea what’s happening at the Weave Shed. Hearings were supposed to resume at 0930 hours (9:30 am) this morning, Tuesday 03 June 2008 with Constable Rene Derochie back to resume his testimony.
It’s now 10:45 am and nothing. I have the link on a ready to go. Nothing yet.
I am getting a blog ready. I decided to look through the transcripts this morning and as always got waylaid I will carry on with that. But I must say that I am wondering how much more of this a person can handle? Watching the Cornwall Public Inquiry some days has for me moved into the realm of torture. I’m totally serious. Some days it’s an ordeal to watch and/or listen. The lack of concern for the safety and well being of children in the Cornwall community at every turn totally boggles my mind. I can not comprehend it. For a spell I tried. At this moment I am beyond trying to comprehend. There is no excuse. None.
Beyond that I am sick and tired of hearing sex abuse allegations minimized because they are dubbed “historical.” I am also thoroughly dumfounded by the ineptitude and negligence and lack of concern for victims.
Finally, the more I learn of the efforts and/ or readiness of police officers to point the finger at Perry the more disgusted I become.
Some days it all seems just a little too much 🙁 Perry is in jail – sitting in virtual solitary confinement – put there by his colleagues at the CPS with the able assist of various members of the legal profession, the judiciary, the AG’s office and the OPP. Meanwhile we listen to officers explain that what’s in their notes isn’t really what they meant, or something of import isn’t in their notes because they were of duty or just for some inexplicable reason plain didn’t enter it.
And Perry was the one and only officer berated mercilessly about his notes?
It gets tiring.
Then we hear endless yatter about police disclosure and what CPS should have disclosed that wasn’t disclosed.
And the CPS set its disclosure sights on Perry? And methodically and it seems collectively began to nail him to a cross because he presumably hadn’t disclosed material related to Marcel Lalonde? And meanwhile the OPP officers who were presumably working in conjunction with the CPS officers had most if not all the files the CPS was jumping up and down about and accusing Perry of withholding? And the CPS didn’t know the OPP had them? And the OPP didn’t know the CPS wanted or needed them? And no one had a clue what had or had not been disclosed by Perry because no one kept track? But they were happy to assume Perry was at fault and nail him to the cross?
Too much! All just too much!!!
They’ve just started. 11:05 am! No explanation for the delay….
Enough for now,
