i sit in the middle here.
easy to hate when you dont need the police, but on the other hand i would bet that statistically speaking being a police officer in Canada is a pretty safe job relative to other countries and jobs.
imho police should be held to an even higher standard of integrity, transparency and trust as regular citizens ESPECIALLY when dealing with one another.
situations like this are damaging to the whole force and the public's confidence, not just the individuals and the officers should be made an example of within reason.
