iCognative for Gang Violence in Canada


Police in British Columbia have arrested and charged 37-year-old Kreshnik Ismailaj, an Ontario citizen, with the murder of Kevin LeClair dating back to what Staff Sgt. Lindsey Houghton say was the peak of a gang war in Metro Vancouver.

According to Police record, Ismailaj was traced down by the provincial anti-gang unit, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of B.C., and arrested without incident in Whitby, Ontario, on July 27. Ismailaj had recently moved from B.C. to Ontario and has no criminal record.

Houghton expresses that the nearly ten-year-long investigation has involved hundreds of officers from B.C. and Ontario.

“Time does not dampen our resolve, and we are confident that we will eventually find and arrest the last remaining suspect in Kevin LeClair’s murder, no matter where he might be hiding.” said Staff Sgt. Lindsey Houghton.

The investigation into LeClair’s murder remains active. In late 2017, the anti-gang unit took over the investigation from B.C.’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, they are still searching for Conor D’Monte, a man allegedly linked to the death, who is believed to have fled Canada in 2011.


In early 2009, a series of gang-related shootings occurred due to what police describe as a gang war in Vancouver, Canada. Alleged participants include Canadian gangs like the Independent Soldiers, the Sanghera Crime Group, the Buttar Gang, the Bacon Brothers, the United Nations Gang, the Red Scorpions, and the Vancouver chapter of the Hells Angels. 41 people died because of this gang shooting. These gangs’ main modus operandi is arms trafficking and drug smuggling. The United Nations estimates that gangs make most of their money through the drugs trade, which is thought to be worth $352 billion in total.

Most gang homicides involve a firearm and take place in public suggests that inter-gang conflict and retaliation (territory disputes) as the main causes of killings. Such dangerous gang war leads to one of the greatest threat to the society.

 So which technology is reliable, scientific, ultra-modern, cost-effective, system driven and easily learned to support the authorities to take control of these notorious gangs?

Why iCognative?

A significant step in the eradication of any gang is to gain accurate intelligence and identification of the key gang members. The best source of intelligence is Human Brain. Only one scientific technology can satisfy the need for the requirement with an accuracy of 99.9%. iCognative by Brainwave Science is a modern forensic technology that has the unique ability to distinguish between perpetrator and innocent by measuring patterns of a specific brain response.

With the assistance of iCognative, a 45 minutes test conducted on Kreshnik Ismaila can help Law Enforcement gain valuable information/insight that can lead to the eradication of the entire street gangs in Canada. To conduct a test on a suspect, a test case needs to be built in which an investigative agent will input known and confidential information about the gang war and murder of Kevin LeClair. Both known and confidential information is used as stimuli to input into the iCognative system in the form of words, phrases or pictures (depending on the available form). Considering gang war situation, law enforcement can use information such as names of key members; gang codes; locations of attack and hideouts; types of arms used; supplier of arms and drugs; bank information used to launder money. The system will flash this information to the suspect on a digital monitor in a sequence. iCognative system collects brain responses to each stimulus and at the end of the test, the system accurately determines whether the suspect’s brain has confidential information related to the crime or not.

Once the iCognative test is conducted, it can provide important missing links like the mastermind of these gangs and the exact hideouts, how they communicate. Such information can aid law enforcement agencies in eradicating gang violence and protecting unlimited innocents. iCognative technology grants law enforcement with superior power never known to the world of security and investigations.
