Warrants issued in kidnapping case
RCMP Sgt. Patrick Webb said it’s rare for police to issue such warnings when an offender is released but given his past that includes a conviction for sexual assault, felt the need to warn people.
“These are not done lightly and only when there is a risk to re-offend,” he said.
“If we believe there’s the potential for re-offending and we’re worried about the victimization of people, we feel they should be advised.”
Dionne, 43, was charged after his accuser, a drug-addicted former prostitute, said she was picked up in Calgary’s East Village on Oct. 28, 2008 and was driven outside the city where he forced himself on her for 10 hours.
During the trial, however, the victim recanted and said she lied about being raped.
Mounties said Dionne has a history of violence and sexual offences against females between the ages of 10 and 42 and has recently been diagnosed as HIV positive.
Dionne is white, 5-foot-11, 170 lb. with blue eyes and brown hair and drives a 1992 blue Dodge Caravan with Alberta licence plate NAE 434.
Webb said police won’t be able to keep tabs on him at all times and are making the public aware because of the potential risk.
You will notice that a description of this monsters van along with the licence plate number is included in the article.
What is not included in the text of the QR77 piece is some very disturbing details of how this went down last night. This man was pulled over by RCMP while he had the kidnapped child with him in the front seat. In fact he was issued with a moving violation ticket and sent on his way!!
This raises serious questions about either the competence of the officer involved or the effectiveness of the computer system used to track and flag sex offenders.
To be fair, the child was not yet reported missing when the traffic stop was made and apparently the child was too terrified to say anything to the police officer when he issued the moving violation.
On the other hand, it appears this POS was using the same van the public was warned about last October.
Thank God this innocent little girl is back safe with her family and not a tragic statistic, despite our law enforcement system.
Something more substantial needs to be done about these sick bastards.
