  • Should we be worried?

    http://www.comoxvalleyrecord.com/news/135180423.html

    Richard Rosenthal is coming here, hired by the government, to investigate Police "misconduct". Seeing that the locals who are coming forward to welcome him are the local "civil-liberties/anti Police front groups, I can only guess what we can expect.

    My opinion is that if there is police misconduct, it should be investigated. Doesn't matter if a person is a liberal or conservative, one doesn't turn their back on misconduct.

      If an extreme lib does the investigations and finds nothing, your department has a WIN. If they ind something, your department can correct the issues and move on...it's a WIN. Change is good....at least that's what I have been told.

        I don't know anything about Rosenthal, however, I noted a quote in the article you listed that said, "Rosenthal replied that he introduced a rule there that officers who lie to internal affairs investigators are fired. That was a "change in culture," he said."

        I'm surprised that this was a "change in culture." Termination for dishonesty is fairly common in my neck of the woods. Without going into a lot of detail, there is a US Supreme Court case, Brady vs. Maryland, that essentially requires us to notify defense counsel if any witness officers have a history of having been dishonest on their official duties. The defense can then bring this up on the stand to impeach that officer's credibility. As a result, the officer is useless as a witness for the rest of his career, so we terminate him for lying.

          I'd agree about the lying part, here you can come to work naked wearing a space helmet and twirling your gun around on your pinky...However lie and you're done!
