Jack Smith (Member): The above is a LIE from Manitoba Justice-I am a victim 2/10/2009 4:45 PM
This is another lie from the department of justice within Manitoba. No supports were offered to me and I could not walk from a beating, and I never participated in a crime. Not to mention I have never been in ANY trouble legally, EVER. Did you play spin the bottle, or provide this service to a "Select Few" individuals whom were directly or indirectly related to affiliates of the MB justice department?
If only your walls could speak the truth to the public about what hell this crown corporation puts victims through. You force victims of crime onto the backs of the Manitoba taxpayers when they become disabled, and then you close the door on them and you never inform them what they are entitled to. You never provide them with assistance with private insurers, or provide their families with supports unless it is a high-profile case.
For the dirty cases where there are direct or indirect affiliations to a crime coming out of the justice department, or out of Winnipeg police department your only intent is to provide assistance in concealment of it. When in fact it is your reasonability to provide legal assistance morally, and ethically to re-coup the costs of a crime back into the program Tax Payers), as well as provide life-long assistance to an individual if possible from the accused. Yet you ignore it because you are self-serving when it comes to protecting POLICE OFFICERS.
I pity your soul Elaine Elliot (Case Manager for Compensation for Victims of Crime) for if your Church (that you faithfully attend) members knew that you have starved people, starved children, created new homeless people, concealed corruption by police officers they would be disgusted and be embarrassed and ashamed to know you.
