Kyle McKee Denied Bail

Okay, it isn't at all surprising that McKee has been denied bail considering the severity of the charges and his past history of running from the police. But this section is interesting to us:

There was a court-ordered publication ban on the evidence and arguments heard during the bail hearing as well as on the reasons for the judge’s decision.

Curious. His history of running would be enough to deny him bail, but there must be something especially juicy if there's already a publication ban on the evidence, the arguments heard to keep him in jail, and the reasons for the decision.

We have some suspicions why (more educated guesses) though we are more than likely not correct and, even if we were, we wouldn't publish them so as not to violate the ban.

Still, we're very interested to learn what's up.

Bail denied for white supremacist leader

Bail was denied Friday for white supremacist group leader Kyle McKee on charges for an allegedly racially motivated attack in Mill Woods and a stash of guns in Calgary.

McKee, a 26-year-old Calgary man, sought bail while making his first appearance in Edmonton’s Provincial Court.
There was a court-ordered publication ban on the evidence and arguments heard during the bail hearing as well as on the reasons for the judge’s decision.

McKee is facing charges of assault causing bodily harm and assault relating to the allegedly racially motivated attack outside a Mill Woods liquor store on March 24, the same day a White Pride Rally was held in Edmonton.

McKee is also facing 15 weapons-related charges stemming from police finding a sawed-off shotgun, a shotgun, two rifles and ammunition after executing a search warrant at his alleged Calgary home on April 12.

McKee was ordered to be back in court on May 18 as were his two co-accused in the allegedly racially motivated attack, Philip Badrock, 44, and Bernard Miller, 20.

At the time, the city police hate crimes unit said two members of Blood and Honour and two associates approached an East Indian man in the Liquor Depot about 11:30 p.m. and made derogatory, racial slurs.
The verbal altercation ended, but started again outside.

Const. Alex Thomas said the victim, identified in court documents as Iqbal Grewal, received bite marks to his hand, and was stabbed in the shoulder with a piece of broken glass after a bottle was smashed over his head.

A friend of the victim was also assaulted, but his injuries were not as severe, said Thomas.

“We find the violence involved in hate crime is significantly more than just a regular assault,” said Thomas at the time.

“These guys are cowards. It’s nothing the complainant or victim has done. It’s basically attacking the person for who they are. In this case, he was a brown male who was in the liquor store at the same time they were.”

The attack was on the heels of a White Pride Rally held about noon that day.

Between 15 and 20 balaclava-wearing demonstrators belonging to the international white supremacist group marched along Jasper Avenue waving a huge white flag saying “White Pride Worldwide.”

The group quickly clashed with anti-racism protesters and there was some brief shoving and shouting before police stepped in and escorted them away.

There could be lots of reasons for the ban, many of them probably not all that "juicy."

Two words: pen time. Given his record he must have had a firearms prohibition. There's no way he won't get a pen sentence on this.
