False accusations at the Kelowna muder trial
One moment please... this post needs to be amended. The police witness in the Kevin Leclair murder trial is different than the police witness in the Jonathan Bacon murder trial but my point remains the same. The former Kelowna gang associates mentioned in th article was in no way whatsoever involved with the shooting of Larry Amero and James Riach. He was their friend and did not set them up. To imply otherwise is simply dishonest.
Revision: Kim Bolan is attending the murder trial of Jonathan Bacon. As we previously reported, the credibility of the police informant in the Kevin LeClair murder trial is non existent. Every word that comes out of that loser's mouth is a lie. The witness admitted to lying to the police on a regular basis even after he started working for the police. The witness told the court that he would regularly post false information on Kim Bolan's blog to throw the police off just like a troll involved in the Britney Irving murder we all know and hate.
The latest inconsistency is a distorted report in the Jonathan Bacon murder trial about a former Kelowna gang associate. We know that the crown bends over backwards to protect the identity of police informants. The court saw a video of the former gang associate inside the Delta Grand near the front entrance. In opening remarks the crown claims the former associate who has since left the life and got a real job, told an associate of the accused that Amero and Riach were in Kelowna that weekend. OK so what does that really mean?
The fact that Larry Amero and Jonathan Bacon were in Kelowna that weekend was no secret. It was their coming out party. They were running around loud and proud on that stupid boat "Steroids and Silicone" trying to pick a fight in public broadcasting the Hells Angels support of the Bacon Brothers. That is why Spike's neice was tragically present. Larry wasn't acting against the clubs wishes he was supporting them. That is why they gave him two huge operations in Montreal after he was shot endorsing Jonathan Bacon. If the Hells Angels put a contract on Larry, they would not have protected him in Montreal and gave him more work after the shooting.
Yes there is video footage of the former gang associate at the hotel they were staying in. He visited them there. Although Jonathan Bacon did not trust the former gang associate the former gang associate knew and liked Larry Amero. He did not betray that friendship. Although everyone hated Jonathan Bacon, that gang associate would never have put Larry at risk because he was his friend. This forces us to question the tainted testimony.
Why would the crown put the life of a former gang associate at risk who is clearly not involved in the case and why would a credible news reporter put his life at risk by running with that tainted testimony? It smells suspicious. The crown's evidence is that the former Kelowna gang associate who was a personal friend of Larry Amero and did have UN contacts told a friend that Larry and James Riach was in town. Big deal. That was no secret. Everyone else knew it.
I know exactly what happened. The former gang associate was friends with Larry Amero and went to meet with them at the Grand. This was known years ago. Jonathan saw the former associate and because the former associate had friends who were UN, Jonathan texted Larry and asked Larry to tell his friend to leave so he did. That's it. The former associate was not involved in the plot to kill Jonathan Bacon and shoot Larry Amero. That is a bold faced lie.
If the former gang associate was involved in the conspiracy to shoot Larry Amero and James Riach, why would the former gang associate store Larry's boat and truck at his house after the shooting and why would he give James Riach a ride home to Vancouver from Kelowna afterwards? Because he was not involved and the crown twisted the testimony out of context.
Just to set the record straight, the two police witnesses in this trial were involved in this murder and were charged in it. They both copped a plea to get a reduced sentence. The police witness was the one who told Manny that Larry, James and Jonathan were at the Grand Matt did not.
On a matter of personal privilege, I will clarify that when the former Kelowna gang associate was in the life I gave him the nickname Matt the Rat. I picked that name simply because it rhymed and because I felt that anyone involved in that life was a rat. I did not ever intend to imply that he was ever a police informant. I never implied that then and do not now.
Matt left the life without becoming a police informant and is pretty much the shining example of everything this blog stand for. I realize the police want to create false charges against him in hopes that he will testify against some of him old associates. I personally think that is sleazy. Falsely accusing someone of being a rat is pathetic. They did the same thing to Britney Irving and used that lie as a rationalization for killing her. This is why we need to be responsible with regards to publishing false allegations made in court because someone could end up dead over it.
I would also like to clarify that I am not a journalist, I am an activist. When a journalist goes to court they simply repeat what was said by either side. One day it's the defense argues this and the next day it's the crown argues that. Just because either side submits an argument, that does not mean the judge will accept and agree with that argument.
Likewise, not everything witnesses say in court is true. After cross examination the court must put the testimony to the test of believability. They must ask is it consistent with the known facts? Does it make sense? Is it believable? An activist doesn't simply report on every false claim made in court. An activists compares the claims with the known facts. That is what I have done in this case. It is not an attack on a journalist who simply reported what they heard in court. It is an attack on the false testimony the police witness gave in court.
