I am shocked to find out today that the police murdered my friend Roger in what appears to be a no nock raid. He was a world class licensed professional gunsmith and resident Ontario IPSC cz75 expert and machinist and did my custom work on my IPSC guns back in my competition days. He was a really nice , super honest trustworthy guy. Everyone liked him , he did custom work for police, IPSC , bullseye crowd just everyone. he was also know to be very strict with permits etc whne bring firearms to be worked on. I can't even begin to understand wtf happened. His wife at carbine point while unloading groceries , unbelievable, no warrant shown or left behind. Colossal f up. I am just flabbergasted.

Sorry for your loss, walther. Indeed, everything I have read about Roger has been above board.
This 'raid' itself not only stinks but what authority/jurisdiction do Toronto Swat or ERT have to
even be in that location so far outside of Toronto? Indeed, this "murder" really stinks or being
premeditated.

It doesn't make any sens

Why would they have a dynamic entry, on a 70 years old gunsmith, with a clean record and has always cooperated with the CFO :|

Someone got ticked off and decided to irritate him and it went real bad?!

I know when I ticked off a few Calgary police they decided to "practice" overhead by my home with the helicopter and with patrol cars on the street. Spotlight shining in the bedroom window 2nd floor was not nice at 2AM.
