After being illegally arrested yesterday without being charged with anything, political prisoner Steve Finney, a leader of the ITCCS and Common Law movement in Canada and a declared citizen of the fledgling Republic of Kanata, was assaulted by Kitchener police this morning and appeared bruised and bloodied in a Kitchener courtroom. Steve was ordered to be detained another day until a bail hearing is held tomorrow.
“His right cheek is all bruised and bleeding, there’s blood all over his face, and there’s a big bruise under his nose that has blood on it” described his wife Amy Smart.
“I asked him who did it and he pointed to one of the uniformed cops in the courtroom”.
Steve and Amy have been outspoken critics of the Childrens’ Aid Society (CAS) and the police of the Kitchener-Waterloo area for their involvement in trafficking local children. The couple have picketed local CAS offices and called on residents to ignore the “false jurisdiction of crown courts”. In response, CAS officials have seized their five year old daughter Amber.
Both Steve and Amy are declared citizens of the Republic of Kanata.
“We need everybody to come down here tomorrow to the courthouse to see what’s happening” said Amy in a telephone interview this morning.
“This is a police state. Steve’s name wasn’t even listed on the court register this morning when he appeared, and they still aren’t charging him with anything. They wouldn’t allow a bail hearing today even when Steve asked for one because he has a job to go to. They’re trying to destroy us for our beliefs and ’cause we know what they’re doing to our children. But we won’t ever give up.”
The Kitchener ITCCS and local Republic of Kanata chapter have called a media conference for 9 am tomorrow, Tuesday October 1, along with a public protest, outside the Kitchener-Waterloo Criminal Courthouse. The address is 85 Frederick street in Kitchener, Ontario.
Come and rally to defend this targeted family, and an innocent man: brave defenders of liberty and our children. Don’t let them crush us one by one!
