Two textbook cases
of OPCC corruption

The Stan Lowe/Bruce Brown/Rollie Woods/OPCC cover-ups
of Vancouver police constable Taylor Robinson and
New Westminster officer Sukhwinder “Vinnie” Singh Dosanjh

 

These are textbook cases of corruption at B.C.’s Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner, whose staff operate in secret as much as possible and answer to no one.

From June 2010 to July 2010, the OPCC colluded with Vancouver police in covering up VPD constable Taylor Robinson’s assault on a disabled woman, Sandy Davidsen. Additional information came to light in November 2013 that clarified the dates involved and further indicated that Vancouver police and the OPCC kept the incident secret and refused to order an investigation.

As a result I lodged a formal complaint about police complaint commissioner Stanley Thomas Lowe to the Law Society of British Columbia in early December 2013. I also brought up the case of New Westminster officer Sukhwinder “Vinnie” Singh Dosanjh, who got away with such extraordinary leniency that he might be considered to have benefited from his offences. Lowe approved of the leniency and refused to call a public hearing into Dosanjh’s actions, despite highly disturbing charges.

After I contacted the Law Society, Lowe, his deputy Rollie Woods, OPCC investigative analyst Andrea Spindler and OPCC admissibility analyst Anthony Parker have been lying to the public and abusing the Police Act to evade scrutiny.

The links below provide the most complete information publicly available about these cover-ups. New info will be added as the situation continues to develop.
