"A subsequent police check of photographic records revealed that the actual suspect looked rather different."

In her April ruling, Justice Chantal Masse said while frustration over the inability to instantaneously check photos was understandable, it was an issue beyond the purview of the courts.

FARK. YOU. You already had abundant documentation that proved the persons identity.

A shaken Ménard felt there must be an easier way to carry out an identity check, given that she was carrying a passport, driver's licence and health card.

If you can't verify your own goddamn government-issued documents, that's not her problem.

This used to be the preview of a mob with shotguns and a hanging rope. Maybe if we a few guys get that treatment again the court will find it's purview area should start covering the whole country.

I am kind of wondering why a photo check was not the first step after the arrest. It seem to me that they had a photo of the real criminal so they should have held her until they were able to view the photo before proceeding with any more investigating.

But that would require 70s technology, some inkling of caring about the rights of the innocent and a moment's thought that names are not particularly unique identifiers. Police usually lack all 3.

Why should a citizen be held liable for the mediocre computer system used by the government?
Common sense and government have nothing in common.

Police in the US are the same way.

I was once arrested while sitting at a bus stop, in a case of mistaken identity, because my clothing matched the suspect's description. As in, I was wearing blue jeans and a T-shirt with a popular local sports bar's logo on it.

Never mind the suspect was on probation, so they had a mugshots, and a complete description of the guy's appearance. Never mind he was 5'11, 200 lbs, early 30s. Never mind I was only 5'2, 110 lbs soaking wet, and 19.

Clearly, anyone could have mistaken us for twins. The Northern Regional officer sure thought so. The guy they were looking for was wanted for pulling a knife on his probation officer earlier that day, so naturally, the police were in no mood to use common sense and logic.

In fact, the officer in question was so pissed that I wasn't the guy they were looking for, he held me anyway while he did a full background check on me, in the hopes he could find something to bust me on, just out of spite.

/Northern Regionals are assholes, regardless of the situation

Apparently the government can be really bad at doing something, but if the reason for it is legitimate, the court says it's OK.

I am going to have to agree with both of you. Years ago when I first got out of the service I thought I would go into law enforcement. When I applied for the academy I had to take a test and a few days later after taking the test I was sent a letter that said I was declined admittance, because I scored to high on the test. The test was an intelligence test so I asked them about it and they told me that I would be bored with police work. I think about that each and every time I have an encounter with law enforcement. Have you ever notice the intelligence level of the bullies in school? I think law enforcement is a natural progression for them.

"Legislatively legal doesn't make something correct, just convienent".
(Prohibition, McCarthyism, slavery, steriliazation court, are just a few examples).

When a politician or judge gets pulled over, they flash the government card and get special treatment (usually). Let Sen Porkbarrel get detained, cuffed, taken to the lockup and body searched for running a lght and see if thier viewpoint changes..
