“In the case of police, it is in everyone’s best interest that there is full, effective, independent, transparent and objective oversight. It goes without saying that an absence of effective oversight will inevitably result in the erosion of the community’s confidence in the police.” http://ombudsman.on.ca/media/139861/who%20will%20guard%20the%20guards%20themselves%20toronto%20police%20services%20board.pdf
  
It is clearly established, accepted fact by most people that those in leadership civil and public servants cops, teachers, ministers, politicians included  are always to be exemplary in behavior,  conduct and they do need to maintain their high standards even out of their working hours, thus to do so they are also to be exemplary  judged, prosecuted  for their own wrong doings with a higher standard over those of us ordinary folks. The police themselves now rather too often are  the bad guys where too many persons now  they have more to fear from the police than from criminals! Why?  Too many  cops hired these days it seems are now still the bad  guys, and  not   rather the citizens themselves.  http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/10/12/supressed-right-of-free-speech-in-canada/  https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/07/20/canadas-police-forces/
 
 This is all unbelievable when  there are no RCMP alcoholics in the first place according to the RCMP itself…

The federal justice minister is considering a new law that would allow police to conduct random breathalyzer tests on drivers, regardless of whether they suspect motorists have been drinking. http://www.cbc.ca/consumer/story/2009/10/05/random-breathalyzer-drunk-driving-test-law.html

I total agree with this law on condition the same test be administered also to all working civil and public servants, senators, politicians in the house of commons as well..
 
If you can’t drive effectively while impaired, drunk neither can you do your effectively  as well.

AND THEY ARE STILL ALLOWED TO HOLD THEIR JOBS?

Two RCMP officers have been charged with impaired driving in separate incidents in Manitoba. Good to see that even police officers are being treated like regular citizens when commiting a crime. They should be treated more severely since they are officers who i bet have stopped many drunk drivers during their carreer. You can’t be breaking the law and then stop and arrest those who do the same crime as you do. These officers need to be taught a lesson!Why is the Nelson House one even on administrative duties?  He should be suspended without pay!  Does this have anything to do with the random breathalyser test story? They want to have a police state in Canada, but someone forgot to tell the cops that they are supposed to be law abiding themselves. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/manitoba/story/2009/10/05/mb-rcmp-impaired-manitoba.html

VANCOUVER — Just a week before the two-year anniversary of her son’s death at Vancouver International Airport, Zofia Cisowski has filed a lawsuit for damages .  The lawsuit against the RCMP, the Canada Border Services Agency and the Vancouver Airport Authority seeks damages for psychological injury, the loss of her son, Robert Dziekanski, and her inability to work since the incident. The suit, filed in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver on Wednesday, also seeks punitive damages. Dziekanski, 40, died on Oct. 14, 2007, after being Tasered five times by four RCMP officers responding to a 911 call at the airport. Dziekanski, who was immigrating to Canada to live with his mother, had become frustrated after a 20-hour flight from Poland, then spending about 11 hours in the international arrivals area of the airport. He was unable to contact his mother, who was waiting for him in another area. Cisowski’s lawsuit, filed a week before the statute of limitations would go into effect, said the conduct of the RCMP and four officers breached the Charter of Rights and was “an abuse of power, reprehensible, malicious, oppressive and high-handed.” The suit claims negligence, assault and battery, malfeasance and charter violations by the RCMP. http://www.calgaryherald.com/news/Dziekanski+sues+RCMP+border+agency+airport/2082604/story.html

Lawyers defend RCMP officers against allegations of at Dziekanski inquiry  The Canadian Press – VANCOUVER, BC — Four RCMP officers who have been portrayed as incompetent liars who needlessly stunned Robert Dziekanski multiple times with a Taser are now getting a final chance to paint a different picture at the public inquiry into the man’s death.

Poland’s lawyer calls for criminal investigation  Richmond News –  Serious breaches of duty by everyone from Richmond Mounties to airport staff at YVR require a formal “rebuke,” the reopening of a criminal investigation and an independent body to handle investigations against the RCMP.

Reopen Taser case, Poland tells inquiry  Toronto Star –   ‎Oct 6, 2009‎  VANCOUVER–The head of a public inquiry into the death of Robert Dziekanski should call for a renewed criminal investigation of the Mounties who Tasered the immigrant in Vancouver’s airport, the government of Poland says.

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?
