Officer fired after being charged The Province - A Vancouver police officer was fired within hours of being arrested and charged with four criminal offences, including drug dealing while on the job, said Chief Const. Chu said Peter Hodson was arrested at police headquarters Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. and “charged with trafficking in marijuana, two counts of breach of trust, one for selling drugs and the other for the illegal use of a police database. In addition, he was charged with break-and-enter with the intent to commit extortion.” Chu noted that Hodson was arrested and charged with impaired driving as well as driving with a blood-alcohol level exceeding 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood while off duty in November. Those charges are still before the court.

Why do the police not prosecute the drunk drivers all year more consistently now too? “Of the 645 sexual assaults that were reported to our service in 2009, more than 40 per cent were alcohol-facilitated sexual assaults,” A sexual assault is never the fault of the victim. She said no means no the first time, and another drink can’t change that.“ We need people to understand that consent cannot be given if the person is impaired by alcohol: If they’re passed out, if they’re unconscious, if they’re sleeping,” Supt. Danielle Campbell, head of the Edmonton Police Criminal Investigations Division. It seems most alcohol-facilitated sexual assault doesn’t seem to be about miscommunication, or misconceptions of consent. Rather, it is about men who use alcohol to incapacitate women for the purpose of raping them, and who do it over and over again like they know what they ‘re doing and are doing it on purpose. Do even the police do the same thing as well?
