B'Nai Brith Audit 2005 Analysis
by Richard Warman
The wealth of action and success by the Edmonton Police hate crimes unit in addressing the problem of hate, both on the Internet and elsewhere within Edmonton, stands as a model for best practices in effective community policing.
Composition and analysis notes of Paul Fromm
The Edmonton Police "Hate Squad" & the Warman Connection On Stormfront.Org:
* Sgt. Stephen Camp the head of the Edmonton Police "Hate Crimes" unit was posting calling himself "Estate"
* Richard Warman was posting using the name "Pogue Mahone"
Now you might think on a message board that receives upwards of 500 new posts a day, their paths would never meet. yet:
In a discussion thread entitled: Re: Vancouver Zundel Protest?
Sgt. Stephen Camp posted on 08-06-2004, 01:42 PM:
Hey ss-88. It's too bad u werent still here in alberta. You would have a strong turnout. Hope plans in BC go well.
Then a few hours later Richard Warman comes along and posts on 08-06-2004,
It's good to see the organising in the West is continuing. Keep it up
Sgt. Stephen Camp posted on 06-22-2004, 12:43 PM:
Would have been there. Did not even know about it. Looks like a decent turnout for short notice. Is their anyway to send notice earlier?
Richard Warman comes along again a few hours later on 06-22-2004, 08:21 PM and posts:
Congratulations to all who made it out and thanks for showing that Zundel is not alone in his struggle!!!
Sgt. Stephen Camp posted on Shiria/Islamic law in Canada on 08-06-2004, 02:03 PM and said:
Did anyone see the CBC newscast on Islamic Law in Canada. The notorious Liberal Federal Gov't has allowed disputes, and other matters to be resolved through a tribunal from the Islamic community, based on their own religious beliefs. The libs say it is to divert the caseload from our courts.
To me, all criminal and civil matters should be resolved through the Canadian Courts, and not based on some foreign, radical, backward, medieval and extreme religous beliefs. My kids are going to be living in a Muslim Country at this rate. Praise freaken Allah, eh!
Richard Warman is the next poster in the thread on 08-08-2004, 10:40 AM and posts:
Yeah I hear you this is not good news.
So this raises the question, did Richard Warman know that Estate" was actually Sgt. Camp, the head of the Edmonton Hate crimes unit? And if he did know, were Richard Warman's posts meant to help establish the "Estate" identity on Stormfront as a "legitimate" person? Why is Richard Warman involved in so many threads that Sgt Camp is also involved in? Most of Sgt. Camps posts had to do with Edmonton. But of course, Warman has no connection to Edmonton, yet he is posting on those threads.
Richard Warman clearly knows Sgt. Camp. In Warman v Glenn Bahr & Western Canada for Us, Sgt. Camp told Paul Fromm, agent for Mr. Bahr, that he called Richard Warman -- in far off Ottawa -- to ask about an ARA poster denouncing Glenn Bahr that was being slapped up in Red Deer, Alberta. Why wouldn't he call the local Reds Deer detachment of the RCMP?
Warman filed THREE Section 13 complaints in Edmonton area. Those are:
1. Glenn Bahr
2. Western Canada for Us [Bahr and Western Canada for Us was ONE
hearing with two named respondents]
3. Peter Kouba
Guess who was the star witness at both Canadian Human Rights Tribunal hearing to uphold Warman's complaints? Sgt. Stephen Camp.
In both the decisions of the CHRT, Sgt. Camp is quoted extensively. See the decisions:
<a href=http://www.chrt-tcdp.gc.ca/search/vi...=_e&isruling=0 >[Bahr and WCFU]</a> and <a href=http://www.chrt-tcdp.gc.ca/search/vi...=_e&isruling=0 >[Peter Kouba]</a>
It seems to be coming together that we are seeing the tip of the iceberg of the spying / infiltration operation that was used against Stormfront, Freedomsite, and Free Dominion. This rag tag group included Warman, the Edmonton Police hate squad, the CHRC and other "anti-racist" activists like communist Shane Ruttle-Martinez (who, like Warman, pretended to be a woman online, and even went as far as to talk dirty to men on message bards.) Keep in mind, Richard Warman testified that "Pogue Mahone" was only ONE of the accounts he uses on Stormfront.Org. When my lawyer asked Warman the other names he used. Warman claimed to forget all of them! (talk about a super selective memory)
With that as the background, guess who is offering their "expertise" to train Police Forces and others on how to infiltrate and be "proactive" on Internet message boards. The Simon Wiesenthal Centre! Since the mid-1990s, the Wiesenthalers have been ferocious enemies of free speech on the Internet and, in the late 1990s leaned on Canadian ISPs to cut off White nationalist dissenters who might have their websites there.
See their website: http://www.fswc.ca/
Infiltration of websites such as Stormfront is part of an organized and darker tactic that is now employed by politicized Police agencies and censorship enforcers. The Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for holocaust Studies is now offering a new course aimed at Canadian Law inforcement agencies and "investigators" entitled "Investigating Internet Extremism".
According to the Wiesenthal Centre's website:
"The workshop works from the premise that in order for law enforcement to be effective in the arena of hate, it must be proactive rather than reactive." The course description continues "Investigating Internet Hate consists of three components; namely infiltration, Internet tools and legalities. In the first section, police officers are introduced to the most frequented web forums, allowing them to become 'part of the community' and investigate varying groups and their activities." [Emphasis added]
(Copied from Wiesenthal website: http://www.fswc.ca/dth_law_enforcement.aspx )
Among some of the Police forces that the Wiesenthal Centre list as recipients of their "training" includes: Ontario Provincial Police, Owen Sound Police Service, Kingston Police Service, Ottawa Police Service, Barrie Police and the Vancouver Police Service.
CHRC is not interested in Edmonton Police HATE.
In 2006, Glenn Bahr tried to have a Section 13 complaint laid against Sgt. Stephen Camp for posting of hate messages. The CHRC always happy to protect it's friends, ruled on August 10, 2006 that he could not even file a complaint against Camp. "Members of the Edmonton Police perform their duties pursuant to the Criminal Code of Canada, as as such, are protected under that code when performing duties undercover as part of an investigation"
