I ask that you please provide Charlie Cox with proper competent legal representation, of
his choosing concerning these matters. Charlie has already been to “Legal Aid” at 1625 B
McPhee Avenue, Courtenay BC, V9N 3A6 on September 1, 2011 to apply for legalrepresentation concerning this matter. Intake worker was not present; another attempt will bemade next Tuesday. He has been trying to contact a referral lawyer for weeks with no success.Charlie is a handicapped man who suffers from more than his fair share of challenges. Epilepsyhas been a life-
long challenge. Charlie’s abilities to gather information and address these issues
are limited due to limited communication skills.Are you willing to help provide competent legal representation for the benefit and remedy of agentle natured man with epilepsy? He is seeking a competent pro-bono lawyer. Charlie has no
money for legal representation…
People are dying all over the Globe due to Police brutality. Some people are not cut out to be aPeace Officer as they are under the impression that beating a member of the public senseless issomehow part of their responsibility. Aggressive violent people, who can not keep the Peace,should not be in the position of a Peace Officer in any community. Beating up handicappedpeople is not a part of the job description. I would think that people who are hired to keep the
peace in the community … NOT continue t
o be paid to unlawfully and illegally detain andassault handicapped members of Our community.
These are the facts:
Unlawful detainment of handicapped man, three times in a five week period.On the second occasion, the RCMP assaulted Charlie Cox, while in the unfortunate throws of amedical condition known as an epileptic seizure.
Each time, the RCMP unlawfully detained Charlie, including the second recent incident… whichinvolved the Police assaulting him while in an epileptic “seizure”. Charlie
was caused undostress and humiliation by locking him up like a criminal for having the unfortunate event of aseizure while on his way home. He was apparently locked up for alcohol intoxication. He,Charlie has not drunk alcohol for over a year and a half. He is a sober man. I know for a fact thathe was sober on all three occasions, as he had just left my place of residence on each occasion.I help people in recovery from alcoholism on a daily basis. Charlie is more to me than justanother human being in recovery. He is a close personal friend with an unfair share of challenges.Charlie takes medication twice daily for management of epilepsy. His niece was contacted andthank God, had brought down his medication to the Police station each time the Police detainedhim illegally and unlawfully. This detainment is unnecessary and causes huge stress towards themedical conditions that Charlie already suffers from.As a result of this unnecessary RCMP brutality on the second occasion, the RCMP decided to
arrest Charlie with an assault charge…
How would you feel about this unacceptable Police behavior, if Charlie was a close personalfriend or family member of yours..?
