False cover-ups, clearly Canada’s police still get preferential treatment and so do do our much too many bad justice Ministers, politicians it seems.. as we have now seen in the Charboneau corruption commission in Quebec http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2013/03/21/and-the-quebec-corruption-gravy-train-went-on-and-on/
The police officer who had been up all night partying with his police buddies, colleagues and did they all drive drunk home as well now? The Police often visted the Police tavern.. many cops are alcoholics undeniably now too.. Unacceptable still.
WINNIPEG — A trial began Monday for a former Manitoba police chief accused of deliberately torpedoing a drunk-driving investigation into another officer. Harry Bakema is accused of obstruction of justice, perjury and breach of trust in a car crash that killed Crystal Taman, a mother of two who was stopped at a red light while driving to work on the morning of Feb. 25, 2005. Taman’s compact car was rear-ended by a truck driven by Derek Harvey-Zenk, an off-duty Winnipeg police officer who had been up all night partying with colleagues. Despite clear road conditions and a big warning light ahead of the intersection, Harvey-Zenk never hit the brakes as his pickup plowed into Taman’s stopped car. The accident happened in the Winnipeg bedroom community of East St. Paul, where Bakema was the police chief. He was among the first officers on scene.The Crown’s first witness Monday testified that Bakema was pretty certain what had caused the crash.“He told me (Harvey-Zenk) was impaired at the time” said RCMP Cpl. Chris Blandford, a collision reconstruction expert who attended the scene hours later.“He was very disappointed . . . that a member of the Winnipeg Police Service was an offender.”But any evidence of intoxication never made it to Harvey-Zenk’s trial. http://thechronicleherald.ca/canada/91705-rcmp-officer-testifies-at-former-manitoba-police-chief-s-trial
