Amidst resounding applause today, we have confirmed that Two Row Times reporter Jim Windle performed a citizens arrest of Gary McHale after the known provocateur attempted to hold a picnic on the controversial former Douglas Creek Estates.
*UPDATED 7/15/10:40pm: While McHale was in the process of performing a citizen’s arrest of an OPP officer, Windle expressed to the OPP that he also wished to make a citizen’s arrest – of McHale. The OPP informed Windle he could travel to the Cayuga OPP detachment to officially file charges. Windle did travel to the Cayuga OPP detachment however at this hour charges have not yet been officially filed.*
Earlier this week through social media McHale announced that he would be holding a picnic in Caledonia today and then travelling to the former DCE to hang 60 Canadian flags, reportedly “one for every officer injured” during the early morning OPP raid of the land occupation in 2006.
McHale has recently made some curious and unwelcome appearances at the former DCE, now known as Kanonhstaton, raising suspicions among the residents of Six Nations and Caledonia alike that he and his small group of supporters are looking to incite violence.
Windle has worked with the Six Nations community for over 12 years and was a member of the media who covered the 2006 raid in Caledonia. He is now a reporter with the Two Row Times.
We are awaiting further information from the Cayuga OPP at this hour. Updates will be released are more information becomes available.3 comments
