Parked near a liquor store … It is when you actually go to use the RCMP services that you find out sadly how bad they tend to be.
– Drunk cop busted Winnipeg Sun Drunken RCMP officer charged with forcible entry in Winnipeg Oye! Times (blog)
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/
Besides the very bad non existent, still poor RCMP managers, “The problems with the RCMP are largely caused by it taking large numbers of people who wouldn’t be hired by municipal forces. The policy of not paying recruits exacerbated the desire of the better recruits to work in cities where their spouses can develop careers, their kids have more choice in education and sports and they can have a social life without being under the microscope that occurs in small towns.” Read more: http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2010/07/28/f-vp-stewart.html#ixzz0v9DjwCqx
“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
Tax payer’s money abuses, false expense account statements, stealing, tax evasions, obstruction of justice, cheating, lying, drunkenness, impaired driving, pornography, Adultery, VERBAL, PHYSICAL ABUSES, are all ESPECIALLY unacceptable for any civil and public servants. It is a clearly established fact with good basis as to why our Canadian leaders, politicians, police, military, public and civil servants who are always to be exemplary are even personally are to held to a higher standard, accountability in reality. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is one of the best approach serving everyone’s best interest too.
Someone said to me today you are fortunate to be white, blonde hair and blue eyes cause the mostly all white, English or French speaking police will not pick on you, they do often pick on the non white folks in Canada.. Police in Canada, Canada wide are known to be thugs, bullies, racists, ”racist attitudes” even in the ranks. What a sad Canadian commentary. And many white folks do know that now as well and do nothing about it?
Too many police officers are now too often guilty of their most serious neglect of public trust and their duty. The related truth is that neither an independent police investigation, a new police commissioner, a promised provincial or federal investigation, or just more politicians promises too often still will not bring the much needed justice. All of the governments can prohibit the initial and further employment of any known racists for any jobs, and can punish them for their racists acts, views. Police managers continue to promise the reforming of bad cops and the bad cops keep killing, abusing innocent persons. The possible retaining of bad police officers is always anyway a false myth. What thus is always needed is the real the dismissal, criminal prosecution, of the guilty cops. So where is it? RCMP has been clearly staffed with pretentious and misfit persons, bad managers for decades now even, and for what was supposed to Canada’s top exemplary professional police force, it instead turned out to be a real dud too, sadly too often neglected, mismanaged and too often despised by other Canadian police forces, especially in Quebec too.

They did not elaborate on why a man with a head injury was left for almost six hours before he was checked. According to police, the 5:50 a.m. check was a “regular cell check.” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/cbc/100720/canada/canada_saskatchewan_sk_head_inury_death_cells_police10720

Only a small portion of RCMP’s recent troubles, it’s major disrespect by many Canadians- The tip of the iceberg.. what also we do not need is more police lovers, politically correct ostriches who lie and say police do no wrong, they are not the good guys too often…
The Oromocto, N.B., RCMP have been embarrassed after one of its squad cars was photographed in a handicap parking spot in Fredericton Junction The photo shows an RCMP squad car, parked outside the agency liquor store in the small New Brunswick village, and behind the car is a small sign with the blue and white handicap parking logo. The resident who took the photo said that the officer backed into the spot, in no apparent rush. The police should be setting a better example for the public. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/new-brunswick/story/2010/07/29/nb-rcmp-parking-spot-disabled-person-601.html
REGINA – Questions are being raised about why an RCMP sergeant in Saskatchewan who rolled his vehicle after having at least five alcoholic drinks was not charged with impaired driving. Sgt. Warren Gherasim was commander of the detachment in Cut Knife, about 170 kilometres west of Saskatoon, when, on May 15, 2006, he conducted himself “in a disgraceful manner that brings discredit on the force” by drinking and driving, says a decision by an RCMP adjudication board. “Sergeant Gherasim’s admission, the (indications) of impairment and the evidence of the odour of alcohol tip the balance in favour of finding that some level of alcohol impairment existed sufficient to contribute to the accident,” the board said in its ruling dated March 20, 2008. “Six different members attended the accident scene or Sgt. Gherasim’s residence, all but one subordinate to him in rank and four serving under him at Cut Knife. Several of these noted the odour of alcohol. “For a detachment commander, one of whose roles is to set an example, to drink enough and drive so that alcohol played a role in a subsequent accident, regardless of the fact that the circumstances were such that no breath demand was made, is disgraceful, and brings discredit on the force.” The adjudication report noted that Gherasim worked his scheduled shift on the day in question and drank two beers with a colleague while golfing. The pair stopped later at the colleague’s house and Gherasim had another beer. After watching a baseball game together, he had a “couple of drinks.” Gherasim has since apologized for his behaviour and been transferred to a different detachment, where he is handling administrative duties. He was given a reprimand, docked eight days’ pay and taken out of the Officer Candidate program. He was also stripped of the Order of Merit of Police Forces he received in 2006 from the Governor General for his work in community-based policing in the Northwest Territories and for fugitive investigations across the country. Bill Pitt, an Edmonton-based criminologist, law enforcement instructor and former Mountie, called the incident “another nail in the coffin” for the RCMP. “This is not a standard of policing that Canadians should have. Does it occur? Yeah, you bet it does.” Pitt said charges weren’t laid because “people were looking for their careers, and properly so because they wouldn’t have had one had they brought a sergeant up on impaired driving charges.” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100727/national/cop_loses_award
