Chief Investigates Homeless Abuse Complaint
Jan, 30 2007 - 5:00 AM

EDMONTON/630CHED - Police Chief Mike Boyd has begun an investigation into claims homeless people were rounded up and held against their will in a paddy wagon a year and a half ago. The Edmonton Journal reports the Criminal Trial Lawyers Association accuses Chief Boyd of failing to properly investigate a complaint of an incident on May 20th, 2005. The lawyers' group, in a new formal complaint, claims nine homeless first nations people were rounded up on Whyte Avenue, driven around in a paddy wagon for two hours before they were released near 80th Street and 127th Avenue. One of the homeless people told the Journal the back of the van was like a "sweat box". Environment Canada says on the late afternoon in question the outside temperature was 19-degrees. None of the people, a mix of men and women, was charged. There may have been confusion about the original complaint to police but an EPS spokesman says "now the Chief is taking this very seriously".
