A website critical of Calgary's police chief and his senior managers has been shut down, after the chief used a rare legal tactic to seize a computer from a private home.

Chief Jack Beaton obtained a civil court order this month to enter the home of a civilian police employee and seize the computer.

A sweeping gag order issued at the same time prevents anyone from talking about the case or reading documents related to it, which have been sealed.
Here are some of the documents.

Civilization requires that the police not be able to silence critics and then stop their victims from talking about the silencing. In a free society the police are to be pitied, not feared. Spread this information about Calgary Police Chief Jack Beaton far and wide.
