Bring him to justice – silence

DATE: Sept 10

TITLE: Bring him to justice – silence

Approximately a month ago, the Toronto Police Service issued a Public Safety Alert regarding a man named George Flowers, aka Mr Flowas, wanted for aggravated sexual assault.  According to the alert, this man was diagnosed HIV positive in 1996 but never told his sexual partners.  Here’s the link to the police alert:

As I wrote in my original posting, “Bring him to justice”, I know two people who dated this man and therefore have an emotional interest in seeing this man off the streets.  According to what people have told me, I’m the only person who has been writing about this, trying to keep his name before the public.  I find this surprising.  Surely I can’t be the only person who knows someone whose life has been affected by this man and is willing to do their part to see him brought to justice.  Someone has suggested nobody else is writing about this from fear; that they are afraid of possible repercussions from supporters of this man.  I beg your pardon.  So if I understand this, you’re more concerned about your own well-being than you are about publicly supporting your friends?  Is that correct – you’re not willing to stand up for your friends since there may be some risk involved?  Are you sure you’re a friend?

It has been suggested that it’s the media’s job to publicize this sort of thing.  Yes, they should be doing their part, but consider just how many releases of all kinds the papers, radio and television stations receive during the course of a day.  They have to go through this flood of information and decide which of the various releases will attract the attention of their audience.  I understand CP24 did publicize this once.  A check on Google did show that many radio stations did make reference to the bulletin on their news sites, including stations as far afield as Winnipeg, Edmonton and New Westminster, B C.

I was told two weeks ago that I seem to be the only person trying to do something on this matter and that others may be afraid to speak up. I hadn’t planned on writing another “Bring him to justice” piece until either I had more concrete information, or he was in custody, but those comments have been eating at me.  And if you’re a long-time reader, you know that if something bothers me, I’m going to write about it.  Those comments have been bugging me, so this piece is the result.

To my followers and readers, enjoy your week.  Thank you for your interest in my writings and remember to hug an artist – we need love too.

Though I live in the United States, I still appreciate the warning. It takes courage to stand up for a friend to help bring someone to justice.

Bring him to justice – update

DATE: Sept 5

Obviously I’ve been doing something right.  I received an email this morning from the Toronto Police Service, which reads as follows:

to me

Hello Cat,

I am the officer investigating the aggrevated sexual assault allegations against George Flowers.

I have stumbled upon your blog and have read what has been going on.

I appreciate you making more people aware of this investigation as we deem this situation as a major public safety risk.

My goal is to find and speak with anyone who has had sexual contact with Mr. Flowers.  They need to know that there is an active investigation and given the option of whether they would proceed with police involvement.  His non-disclosure actions are criminal whether or not a sexual encounter resulted in HIV infection. A lot of people are under the impression that if they DIDN’T contract HIV, that they have no criminal claim and that is false. The charge is for the “threat” of contracting the virus at the time of sexual contact if they were NOT advised of someone’s HIV status PRIOR to any sexual encounter.

If you have questions, don’t hesitate to call me.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Phone: (416)-808-5505

I have removed two short paragraphs that were directed to me personally.  Please take notice of the section I have put in bold.  This section is important because it says that even if a person is not infected, that he didn’t say anything is still considered a threat under the law.

And, once again, here is the link to the original Public Safety Alert if you wish to contact Crimestoppers:

Help get this man off the streets before more people are put at risk.


Bring him to justice

If you’ve followed the link from Facebook to get here, you’ve no doubt also noticed the other link I posted earlier this morning to the Toronto Police website.  If you haven’t looked at it yet, please read it and repost it if you wouldn’t mind.  As I write this, the police have issued this Public Safety Alert, but I’m unable to find any local media that has picked it up.

For those readers not on Facebook, I’ll cut and paste the body of the posting on the police site:

If you prefer to check it yourself, here’s the link to the above alert: .

Why am I writing about this and publicizing the police alert?  Very simple.  Because I know two people George Flowers slept with without revealing his status.  One tells me she’s been checked and is clean.  The other is not. She told me she’s gone through fifteen years of hell because of this man. He has basically robbed her of any kind of life. This man has been spreading this virus for sixteen years and who knows how many people he has infected.  From these two friends, I am aware that he likes to have a harem around him, so I would suspect the number is considerable.  I’m hoping others in addition to the brave people who obviously filed complaints do come forward on this.

George Flowers is one in a long line of wanna-be rappers with more ego than talent.  I say this from personal experience because I’ve met him and heard his music. He can be a real charmer when it suits him, which is probably how he was able to infect so many women.  He didn’t try his charms on me, not that they would have worked for I found him arrogant. He lives in Toronto and may very well still be there, but he also has ties to Jamaica.

If you know George Flowers, also known as “Mr Flowas”, if you know where he is, please, I urge you to do a lot of women in his life, past, present and future a huge favour and turn him in.


Bring him to justice – echos from the past

DATE: Aug 26

Over the past two weeks I have written two postings using the title “Bring him to justice” highlighting a Public Safety Alert issued by the Toronto Police Service regarding one George Flowers, aka “Mr Flowas”.  He is wanted for aggravated sexual assault because, according to the alert, he was diagnosed HIV positive in 1996, but neglected to mention this fact to his sexual partners.

I have spoken with some of the people he was intimate with and they all say approximately the same thing: That is, in some cases, if their own diagnosis of being HIV positive hasn’t caused enough stress and disruption of their lives, they  now  find themselves reliving the feelings they experienced upon receiving this diagnosis as a result of the publicity surrounding the alert.  Before you accuse me of adding to their stress, I gave them the opportunity to read my previous postings and approve them before they went up, as I did with this one.  That I did so is unusual for me, but since this is such a sensitive topic for some of these people, I felt it necessary.

I’m going to finish this piece as I finished the second piece: If you know George Flowers, also known as “Mr Flowas”, if you know where he is, please, I urge you to do a lot of women in his life, past, present and future a huge favour and turn him in.  You can report his whereabouts anonymously and, should you choose to file a report with the police, that too can be done without your name becoming known.  And here is the link to the Public Safety Notice:   I urge you to contact the officers named at the bottom of the release if you have any information, or if you wish to file your own report.


Bring him to justice – followup

DATE: Aug 15

Approximately a day-and-a-half ago, I posted “Bring him to justice”, about a man named George Flowers, aka “Mr Flowas” who is wanted by the Toronto Police Service for aggravated sexual assault.  Mr Flowers has been HIV positive since 1996, but apparently never mentioned that detail to his partners.  As I said, I know two people who have slept with George after he learned of his condition and he said nothing to them.

Again, as I wrote in the original piece, he has ties to Jamaica and is rumoured to be in Jamaica now, with a scheduled return to Canada of mid-September. Based on reports I suspect this is a smoke screen, for according to one source he was constantly borrowing money and I doubt he could afford round-trip airfare to Jamaica.  Talking with others, the general consensus is  that someone is hiding him, probably in Toronto.  If someone is, I’d like to remind them that could get you charged with aiding and abetting a fugitive.

I have also received a report that despite being diagnosed HIV positive in 1996, in 2002, either the Department of Health or the police sent him a written warning to advise any sexual partners of his condition again.

As I write this, it is about 10:20 pm August 15 and according to the stats on WordPress, the original posting has had 102 direct views.  I say “direct views” because there are many, many views under the heading “home page/archives”, which could also mean some of those readers have read “Bring him to justice.”  You would think with this many views, there would also be a great number of “likes” and comments.  Not for this one.  There have been two likes.  There was one single comment, from someone calling themselves L.  Her message told me George Flowers was all over Google (it is, I checked); telling me she’s known him for years, then asking me for the name of the person who tested positive.  Well, excuse me, but if I didn’t name these people in the original post, there is no way I’m going to do it in response to a comment.  Especially when she didn’t say “please”.

I have also received more information on L.  Apparently she has known him for years and seems to be taking up a defence of him.  She wanted the name of this person and whether she’d been to the police to report it to George, possibly to give him some idea of what evidence the police had against him, or possibly to attempt to get this person to change their story.  Sorry L  The previous two sentences can be summed up succinctly in one word: “busted”.

I’m going to end this followup with the last sentence from the original posting:  If you know George Flowers, also known as “Mr Flowas”, if you know where he is, please, I urge you to do a lot of women in his life, past, present and future a huge favour and turn him in.  You can report his whereabouts anonymously and, should you choose to file a report with the police, that too can be done without your name becoming known.
