Female G20 Protesters Sue Toronto Police- Say They Were Profiled ...
Suing: These three people are among seven friends suing Toronto police for
$1.4 million for 'recklessly disregarding' of their civil rights
Actually Larry how it works is that you are mandated to arrest someone in a domestic situation. The amount of paperwork which is required to be filled out when at a domestic with violence and no arrest is made far outweighs what one has to do with an actual arrest. Ergo does not matter how many get hauled into the jail house after the domestic call as long as someone does.
Traditional marrigage, gay, lesbian marriage, don't matter. Violence, police get called, you can bet your bottom fiat currency that one or more are going to be guests of the city.
It's all business. Arrest for the cop, means doing their job, hopefully at least one off duty court appearance which means either time and a half cash or time in the book. Asst. Crown gets a fuller docket so they can complain about too much work which means more money next contract, judge gets more money 'cause they have fuller docket and too much work, legal aid or private practice lawyers gotta get paid, social workers, newspaper reporters, well you can see where I'm going. It's a money machine.
Getting arrested is just another business tax. What's not to understand?
By the way in your scenario I'd have arrested both man and woman. Woman for assaulting man, man for something which I could easily enough find. Two arrests, two court cards, double the money.
For too long the Toronto Police Service has believed that their 'Intelligence Bureau' is the final authority on what is fact and what is fiction. Over the years I had a number of run ins with the 'super snoops' regarding assessments, observations, and conclusions which flew in the face of well reasoned, evidence supported and verifyiable facts.
Intelligence Bureau always won out, although their arguments were based on spirious facts, paranoia, and twisted logic.
Remember the old computer axiom 'garbage in, garbage out'.
I think that if their is ever an honest assessment of the whole sorry mess, (something which knowing the department, knowing Blair in a work relationship, and knowing the cover your ass when all else fails mentality with Toronto, (or any law enforcent orgainzation probably), then the real pile of doggy do can be laid at the feet of the intelligence services.
The Public Works Protection Act RSO 1939, uniform officers acting as thugs against persons walking along a public street, and all the other sorry mess arises out of the Intelligence Bureau, it's mandates, close relationships with the RCMP, OPP, Intell., and CSIS.
Billy, remember, be careful what you asked for, 'cause it just might come to pass.
At least you got pensionable time in.
You need to be a member of Toronto G-20 (fight back against the new world order!!!) to add comments!
