RCMP denies claim of 600 missing aboriginal women

The RCMP are really going overboard with their anti-FN program. Apparantly in their eyes there aren't any missing FN women. Fuckers.

I read the article and the RCMP didn't claim that there were no missing FN women as you suggest.

I've been to sisters in spirit memorials, have seen the documentary that quite clearly revealed the data collected on the figure of women murdered or missing.

Just 85% fewer. In fact 600 is way too low a number. Why the support for the RCMP?

Serviam6, you are in the aboriginal forum. This is supposed to be a safe space for aboriginal voices. Your post at #2 is against babble policy.

I thought I was pointing out an incorrect statement.   I will cease posting on this thread and message you for clairification of the policy.

Nice non-apology. The figure of 600 is, in fact, conservative. The study conducted on missing and murdered aboriginal women was, by all accounts, well and ethically conducted. The fact that this RCMP claim comes, coincidentally, right around the time that the sexual violence of RCMP officers against aboriginal women has finally hit the MSM can't be ignored.

I don't understand how I violated the policy so I PMed a moderator to get clairification and better understand the policy. I'm also sincere in my apology to Halq'emeylem if my post came across as either insincere to him/her or created a hostile environment for them to vent about the RCMP. I can't do much more than apologize and attempt to understand where I went wrong.

 

I'm quite certain there are more than 600 FN women missing and this is a lame attempt by the RCMP to cover their shitty police work and try to somehow place blameon Aborigionals for not reporting this.

They are saying it's beneath them to believe that they would have anything to do with the 600 assaults on innocent, vunerable aboriginal girls and woman.....when it is now common knowledge that there is 300 complaints from within there own force of just that...and that is just from 2005...the time Harpers govt was formed ..and the same with the bully study that found them to be just that bully's ...all complaints from 2005 (Harper govt) till now.

 

I'll bet the number of abused woman both aboriginal and caucasian from outside the force is in the thousands... you can't go a week without reading about an RCMP either being charged or investigated for such haneous things as child luring and ...abusing children with chains ..sexually molesting , rape....etc.

Now we read how the Harper govt is opening a religious office in parliament......slowly but surely the conservatives are looking more and more like right wing Talibans than talibans ....the only differance is the conservatives get the RCMP and police to do the crimes against humanity dirty work for them.
