Want to fix the police problems we have in the United States?

Changing who we hire will not do anything. Changing policy will not do anything.

To change to the police we need to dismantle this system of the 'thin blue line' that police in our country have developed.

Hey, we found one of those few good men. Looks like the rest of the police force hates his guts.

Remember,

Cops who don't snitch on cops = good thing

Citizens who don't snitch on other citizens = bad thing

I've said it before, we need police cops. A force that has power over the police,.but not average citizens.

Send them out undercover.

Not helpful here at all.

Wow.. In Canada (well at least where the article it out of) not only do they actually seem to not tolerate blue line bullshiat they actually suspend officers WITHOUT pay..

It's like the exact opposite of the U.S.
 
2012-05-30 12:35:33 AM
Good for the kid for actually standing up for the letter AND the spirit of the law. It sucks that he's being harassed for that effort. I really hope he doesn't end up on the receiving end of an "in the line of duty" injury because the other farkers aren't supporting him in a professional manner.
 
2012-05-30 12:48:20 AM
So what you're saying is cops should be allowed to run red lights?
 
2012-05-30 12:48:34 AM
I'm not really crazy about the arrest as described in tfa. They didn't actually catch him driving drunk. Someone (anonymous?) calls 911 and gives them a license plate number, and that's enough evidence for a DUI (Which I believe is a felony in Canada). If you're pissed at someone, wait until you know they've been drinking at home, call cops, claim you saw them driving... life changer. Just seems too easy to abuse.

The article about the rookie cop catching shiat from the rest of the police because he arrested another police officer for breaking the law?
That article?

Just because a judge stepped in doesn't mean that 'thin blue line' bullshiat isn't a major reason cops act like they above the law and better then the citizens they are suppose to be serving.

They saw their umpteenth traffic accident with fatality caused by a drunk driver who walked away without a sratch.

Because it involves a rookie Toronto police officer who crossed the thin blue line and paid the price.

Screw that. We need more Sam Vimes types.

Seriously. If I knew a cop was like Sam VImes even fifty percent, I know he would be a good man. And if we can find a real one, then farkin hire that guy.
 
2012-05-30 03:37:09 AM
Some officers there "took exception to a police officer being charged or investigated,"

because, that would not be fair, right?
 
2012-05-30 03:41:23 AM
The police should have tougher penalties for the same crimes compared to the public. They should hold themselves up to a higher standard.
 
2012-05-30 03:44:54 AM
So Canadian cops are dicks, too, eh?

dready zim: The police should have tougher penalties for the same crimes compared to the public. They should hold themselves up to a higher standard.


It should go up a level or two. Misdemeanors treated as low level felonies. Assaults treated as manslaughter, rapes treated as murders, etc. Oh, and always in General Population in prison. You don't get special treatment once you switch sides.

Except that part in the article where they talk about taking him to the nearest police station with a "breath technician" The officers took Berthiaume to neighbouring 22 Division, the closest station where a breath technician was present, and required him to give breath samples. and he was over the legal limit a blood-alcohol level over 80 milligrams, it was totally just like you said (except the opposite).
 
2012-05-30 03:49:34 AM
It's BS like this why I never chose to get into law enforcement. I've joked in the past that I felt I was too honest to be a cop... and stories like this are the perfect example of what I mean.

Looks to me like Canada is doing it right, at least somewhat. They docked all kinds of people weeks of pay, and one was charged with misconduct. Dock enough pay, people tend to stop being idiots.

Except they picked him up from his house to take him to the police station.

"That night, Vanderburgh and Khawaja went to Berthiaume's home in High Park after a 911 caller reported seeing someone driving erratically on the Don Valley Parkway, and had recorded the licence plate number."

That isn't enough. What needs to be done is to put corrupt police officers in prison. Along with the general population.

Where's the part about him actually driving? It says they took him from his home to that place. Was he driving his house around?

No shiat... That's what amazed me. They pull the rookie over to "give him the business" a little and one gets docked half a month's pay, and the other two get docked 2/3 of a month's pay. Way to go, Canada.

Here in the U.S. the cocksuckers could have gone to his house, raped his wife, and cornholed his 6 year old boy with a splintery broomstick, and the department would have given them 6 months off with pay while they waited for the hubbub to die down.

this can apply to every claim of 'an anonymous tip phoned in'. that's the problem, anyone could be calling in anything.

saw a guy on 'Cops' get his U-Haul emptied after cops received a tip he had drugs. it was a lie called in by his recent ex-girlfriend just to bust his balls as he left her.

the cops then worked with him as he got her to admit what she did on the phone. then the cops went and arrested her!
