Having pinned the blame for a past conviction and a significant injury on an RCMP officer, a man came up with a plan of revenge that involved soiled underwear and murder.

Jeremy Barker was a federal inmate staying at Oskana Community Correctional Centre in Regina when he spoke of his plan to a fellow inmate between the beginning of May and end of June 2017.

That inmate reported details of the conversation to a parole officer.

The case went to trial and, earlier this month, Queen’s Bench Justice Richard Danyliuk returned with his decision, finding Barker guilty of uttering a threat.

Family of Peter de Groot still looking for explanation for deadly RCMP shooting, 5 years later

  Family of Peter de Groot still looking for explanation for deadly RCMP shooting, 5 years later The family of an alleged gunman shot and killed by RCMP after a manhunt in southeastern B.C. in 2014 says they still have a long list of questions about what happened.There's more than a dozen of them. Some are seemingly straightforward, like wanting to know whether or not Peter de Groot was shot in the back. Others are more complicated.

In British Columbia, a court has convicted a veteran RCMP officer of obstruction of justice. Corporal Benjamin "Monty" Robinson was involved in a fatal

A New York City police officer was acquitted on Monday of murder and manslaughter charges in the off-duty killing of an unarmed man who the officer said attacked him last year during a late-night traffic dispute in Brooklyn.

“Irrespective of whether the accused could possibly have carried out this bizarre revenge plan, the evidence convinces me he intended to carry out the threat at the time he made it,” the judge wrote. “The evidence persuades me that the accused intended his threat to be taken seriously.”

Danyliuk said Barker and the other inmate had gotten to know each other during their time there, and that Barker eventually told the other inmate “his life had been ruined by the police and by one officer in particular.”

Referring to the second inmate’s testimony, Danyliuk said Barker told the other man “he had plans to take revenge on that police officer.”

“That plan involved a first stage: ruining the officer’s marriage,” Danyliuk wrote. “The accused told (the other inmate) he was going to obtain a ‘used’ or ‘dirty’ pair of women’s panties, break into the officer’s home and leave the panties there for the officer’s wife to find. The accused’s theory was that the officer’s wife would find the panties and conclude her husband had been unfaithful, then divorce him.

RCMP watchdog's probe into Colten Boushie case to wrap by end of 2019

  RCMP watchdog's probe into Colten Boushie case to wrap by end of 2019 An independent probe into how RCMP members investigated the death of Colten Boushie and interacted with his family is nearing its conclusion.  The process was sparked by a complaint about RCMP conduct filed by Boushie's uncle Alvin Baptiste, left, seen here with Boushie's mother Debbie Baptiste. The family also raised concerns about how RCMP members notified them about Boushie's death. Debbie Baptiste, Boushie's mother, previously told CBC News that on the night of Boushie's death, RCMP officers entered her home with weapons drawn before informing her of her son's death.

“Then, after the officer’s marriage was ruined, the accused said he had access to a firearm and that he was going to shoot and kill the officer.”

While the other inmate at first thought Barker was simply “talking tough,” he then considered the detailed nature of the plan suggested Barker was not just making it up. He testified he warned Barker it would lead to a life sentence, but Barker — who court heard spoke of the plan several times — said he wouldn’t get caught.

The witness told the court Barker claimed the officer had framed and seriously injured him, causing a significant hip problem.

Court heard Barker later acknowledged, during an interview with a Regina Police Service member, to having made the threat.

Danyliuk found the Crown’s key witness credible and accepted his evidence on what Barker said to him. The judge added the witness’s evidence was backed up by the statement Barker himself gave city police.

  Dennis Rodman denies slapping guest at Florida party DELRAY BEACH, Fla. — Dennis Rodman is pleading not guilty to a misdemeanour charge of slapping a man who was celebrating the former NBA star's birthday at a Florida bar last May. Rodman's attorney Lorne Berkeley denies the accusation and says an investigation will exonerate the retired player. Delray Beach Police say Jeff Soulouque attended the May 17 birthday event at the Buddha Sky Bar. They say Soulouque told an officer he was talking to someone behind the former player. An affidavit says Rodman turned around and smacked him and immediately apologized. Soulouque said he was a little swollen the next morning and decided to press charges.

“What he says in that statement leaves no doubt that he uttered these words …,” Danyliuk wrote. “He said, ‘I threatened a goddamn cop’ and ‘I totally said it’ and said he would ‘f–k him up the way I got f—-d up.’ There are no nuances in those admissions.”

Danyliuk further found evidence Barker intended the threat to be taken seriously or to intimidate.

“From the evidence, the ‘bad blood’ the accused feels toward this officer was known by each witness …,” the judge wrote. “The evidence of (the witnesses) vividly illustrates just how staunchly the accused clung to his revenge plan, ill‑conceived though it may have been.”

Barker was sentenced to nine months jail and a 10-year firearms prohibition.
