xx The Warning System

April 26, 2018, 14:53:06 by Scott
Next to the Staff turnover last year, the largest change we've had is in how we apply and manage warnings. In the old days, it was by manually slapping a huge banner on a user's account, writing it up and then manually removing it when the time came. The new approach is simpler and more transparent, for everyone. It's also streamlined to keep the Staff from becoming bogged down in managing warnings.

Overview:
  • A 0% warning can be used if a "warning shot" is needed, with no impact.
  • Users may apply a +5% warning to another user via the MilPoints Assessment screen, this falls into line with our users policing users approach.
  • At 10% a user is added to a watch list for the staff.
  • At 25% a user is moderated (all posts must be approved)
  • At 50%+ a user is muted (they cannot post)
  • Warnings automatically decay at a rate of 10% per day.
  • Each Staff can apply no more than 50% to a given user, on a given day.
  • This means any Staff can mute a user immediately, but concurrence from another Staff is required to keep it in place.
  • E.G. A user with 70% warning will be unable to post for 2 days, and back to normal usage in 7 days.
  • A user's entire warning history is displayed on the warning screen.
  • Staff can decrease warning % at any time.
  • All messages and warnings are logged, this helps any review process.

If you receive a warning that you wish to dispute, PM me and I will look into it. Please do not PM any Staff you see online. We're trying, as much as possible, to streamline how we handle matters like this, and a common approach is what is required.

Any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

xx Soldier home for thanksgiving saves life in Windsor

Soldier home for Thanksgiving performs first aid on downtown shooting victim

When Cpl. Brandon James Liddy heard gunshots in downtown Windsor early Friday morning, the military trained soldier slipped into autopilot.

First, he took cover behind a wall outside the club where he’d been attending a networking event. Then, he looked out to see what was happening.

“The shooter was running away,” said Liddy, an imagery technician for the Canadian Armed Forces stationed in Gatineau, Que. He was home to celebrate family Thanksgiving in Tecumseh.

Liddy saw the victim walk to the side of the road, stumble and then collapse.

“Immediately, I went over to him — I knew something was really, really wrong.”

Windsor Police said Monday the victim, a man in his mid-20s, remained in critical condition in hospital after being shot multiple times near Ouellette Avenue and Maiden Lane around 1:45 a.m. Friday.

Liddy took off his suit coat and got down on his knees to introduce himself to the victim, who was still conscious. Liddy told the man he was with the Canadian Armed Forces and trained in first aid, and then asked if he could help. The man said yes.

“I went through the motions of doing first aid, feeling for wetness, the blood, and feeling for holes in his clothes for gunshot wounds.”
Liddy removed his belt and used it as a tourniquet after finding a gunshot wound in the man’s arm.

When he found two more wounds in the man’s chest, he ordered a bystander to take the shirt off his back to patch the holes. Another bystander held pressure on the wounds to stop the bleeding. Liddy performed first aid on the man until emergency personnel arrived to take over.

After doing it in practice over ten years being in the military, it was an automatic thing

“There was no actual hesitation,” said Liddy. While others were asking if the three bangs had come from a cap gun, he was running to help.
“After doing it in practice over ten years being in the military, it was an automatic thing,” he said. “I used the training that I’ve done so many times in a scenario in real life.”

Word of Liddy’s heroics spread quickly over social media after he published a tweet detailing the events of his first hour in Windsor. He included three pictures of small bloodstains on his pants, sleeve, and shoes. He’s been receiving messages of thanks from strangers on the internet ever since.

xx High-ranking Canadian Forces soldier sentenced to 5 months in jail

High-ranking Canadian Forces soldier sentenced to 5 months in jail

CBC News · Posted: Oct 03, 2018 1:26 PM ET | Last Updated: October 3

A high-ranking soldier in Canada's military has been sentenced to five months in jail after he pleaded guilty to disgraceful conduct for voyeurism at a court martial on Tuesday.
Master Warrant Officer Mardie Reyes received his sentence on Wednesday, Lt. Nadine Abou Rjeily, a public affairs officer with the Canadian Armed Forces, confirmed to CBC Toronto.
He will serve his sentence in Edmonton, she said. His rank will also be reduced to sergeant.
Reyes, who was sergeant-major of the Denison Armoury and acted as a chief disciplinarian and counsellor to his subordinates, admitted to secretly recording bathroom video of female colleagues multiple times.
A courtroom packed with uniformed soldiers, Reyes's peers, heard Tuesday that he targeted a female subordinate whom he was mentoring.
The victims' identities are protected by a publication ban.
In a joint submission, both the prosecution and civilian defence lawyer requested five months' imprisonment and a reduced ranking.

xx Russia accused of cyber-attack on chemical weapons watchdog

October 04, 2018, 10:34:30 by daftandbarmy
Dutch military intelligence disrupted a Russian cyber-attack on the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the Dutch defence minister has said.

The attack, which was thwarted with the help of British officials, came after the cybercrime unit of the GRU Russian military intelligence directorate had also attempted a remote attack on the Porton Down chemical weapons facility in April and on the UK Foreign Office in March. Both attacks were unsuccessful.

xx CMAC strikes down key provision of National Defence Act for violating military m

September 21, 2018, 13:40:10 by putz
https://www.thelawyersdaily.ca/articles/7379

In a legal earthquake for the military justice system, the Court Martial Appeal Court of Canada (CMAC) has split 2-1 to strike down s. 130(1)(a) of the National Defence Act (NDA) because the majority held that the provision — which deems Criminal Code offences committed in Canada by military members to be “service offences” — deprives military accused of their Charter s. 11(f) right to trial by jury.

Military Quote
Peace and freedom are two opposite things. You cannot have both. You can choose to willingly submit your freedom for peace, or fight against those who would reign peace upon you at the expense of your freedom. So for those of you who advocate peace above all else, be careful, because without greater men than yourselves, you might just get it.
