‘Hell to pay:’ Residents angry as RCMP seize guns from High River homes

HIGH RIVER — RCMP revealed Thursday that officers have seized a “substantial amount” of firearms from homes in the evacuated town of High River.

“We just want to make sure that all of those things are in a spot that we control, simply because of what they are,” said Sgt. Brian Topham.

“People have a significant amount of money invested in firearms ... so we put them in a place that we control and that they’re safe.”

That news didn’t sit well with a crowd of frustrated residents who had planned to breach a police checkpoint northwest of the town as an evacuation order stretched into its eighth day.

“I find that absolutely incredible that they have the right to go into a person’s belongings out of their home,” said resident Brenda Lackey, after learning Mounties have been taking residents’ guns. “When people find out about this there’s going to be untold hell to pay.”

About 30 RCMP officers set up a blockade at the checkpoint, preventing 50 residents from walking into the town. Dozens more police cars, lights on, could be seen lining streets in the town on standby.

Officers laid down a spike belt to stop anyone from attempting to drive past the blockade. That action sent the crowd of residents into a rage.

“What’s next? Tear gas?” shouted one resident.

“It’s just like Nazi Germany, just taking orders,” shouted another.

“This is the reason the U.S. has the right to bear arms,” said Charles Timpano, pointing to the group of Mounties.

Officers were ordered to fall back about an hour into the standoff in order to diffuse the situation and listen to residents’ concerns.

“We don’t want our town to turn into another New Orleans,” said resident Jeff Langford. “The longer that the water stays in our houses the worse it’s going to be. We’ll either be bulldozing them or burning them down because we’ve got an incompetent government.”

Langford blasted High River Mayor Emile Blokland over comments made Wednesday in which Blokland said residents will be allowed to return after businesses, such as hardware and drug stores, are opened.

“It was ridiculous,” said Langford. “I think he’s a puppet on a string.”

Langford said Premier Redford should come to High River to address residents’ concerns and provide information.

“This is at the highest tension,” he said. “What’s going to happen next is that people are just going to be walking across these fields, and I don’t care if they put hundreds of thousand of police officers there, they’re not going to stop from getting in.”

Sgt. Topham said he didn’t know when residents would be allowed to return to their homes. “People much higher up are going to make those decisions,” he said.

He did confirm that officer relied on forced entry to get into numerous houses during the early stages of the flood because of an “urgent need”, said Topham.

Police are no longer forcing themselves into homes and the residences that were forced open will be secured, he said.

Topham said the confiscated firearms have been inventoried and are secured at an RCMP detachment. He was not at liberty to say how many firearms had been confiscated.

“We have seized a large quantity of firearms simply because they were left by residents in their places,” said Topham.

The guns will be returned to owners after residents are allowed back in town and they provide proof of ownership, Topham added.

Residents promised to returned to the checkpoint at noon every day until they are allowed to return to their homes.

RW - The RCMP just lists off all their transgressions as if it is perfectly normal. You get the impression they are clueless as to what people understand the law to be and entirely oblivious to their transgressions against people and property.

Comments like these have been so deeply ingrained. Little do these folks know that A.H. could freely walk among the people, shake hands etc., no Pope Mobil required.

I suppose we should not pay it any mind - just an ingrained ignorance. It would be nice if they had learned a little more about Russia in 1917 - but then we know who took over education in the 50s and 60s.

The Russian Revolution of 1917 changed not only the future of Russia but of the entire world. It toppled a monarchy and brought about the first communist.

DEATH OF A DYNASTY

Nicholas II abdicated his throne in 1917 as revolution swept Russia. He and his family were placed under house arrest in Tsarskoe Selo, then evacuated to Tobolsk in the Urals in August that year.

The Bolsheviks came to power in October 1917 and by March 1918 the family were forced to live on soldier's rations.

The next month, the Red Army moved the Romanovs to Yekaterinburg. There were plans to put Nicholas on trial, but these were scuppered when the city became the target of the rival anti-communist White Army.

The Bolsheviks decided to shoot the entire family on July 17 so they could not be rescued by the White Army.

They woke them, told them to get dressed and pretended they were being moved from Yekaterinburg away from the oncoming battle.

They were shot in a basement and their bodies buried in a pit near the city. Their remains were reburied in 1998 by the Russian government, who gave them a state funeral.

Went through High River a few days ago on my way to Calgary. As pathetic as the cops are down here in the US, the cops in Canada are an even sorrier bunch of elitist thugs just following orders for a paycheck. At least down here we have them outgunned and when SHTF, they and their families are going to feel the wrath of the people in a hurtful manner. Can't fix stupid...

The RCMP are directly on the federal payroll and have zero allegiance to whatever town or province to which they are posted. Their main job out here in BC is writing traffic tickets and harvesting pot in the great outdoors. As they only serve and protect the crown, if there is no money in it, they aren't really too useful for catching criminals.
