Statement on “Project Marvel” Raids in Hamilton
NO MORE POLICE TERROR IN OUR CITY!
Hamilton CopWatch statement on recent ‘Project Marvel’ raids
On Tuesday December 13th Toronto police launched a coordinated series of pre-dawn raids across Canada involving over 900 cops from several jurisdictions executing 67 warrants targeting Toronto based ‘street gangs’ and their extended networks. Locally a total of 5 homes were attacked by Hamilton and Toronto Police, including the residence of a 68-year-old Sharon McCrudden (Toronto Police later admitted they had the wrong address) and another of Pamela Markland and her 6 children. Despite the use of dangerous paramilitary tactics, Hamilton Police have come up with no arrests or charges as a result of the raids.
Hamilton CopWatch have been patrolling downtown in recent weeks. They report on their efforts and a minor run in with the cops at Occupy Hamilton on their website,
