  1. This is a reflection on the police chief… Are these the kind of officers he’s going to hire with all that money he says is needed to hire more cops. Just wondering.

  2. Anyone else charged with this, the release would provide more info about the crime. Cop gets charged- no info.

    Party in Garden River on New Years, publicly named and fined. Cop has a party, internal investigation, NOT named and/or fined. (but then have the nerve to go out and name and fine residents?)

    Just because you wear a badge, you are not afforded any more or less rights than we are. Yet it doesn’t seem to work that way in this town does it?

    • The way it should work is anyone involved in creating or enforcing laws (MPs, MPPs, Police, Crown Prosecutors and Judges) should be held to a higher standard and automatically receive twice the fine or sentence upon conviction.

  3. WITH PAY????? So he gets charged and gets the best part of two months paid holidays ??? Heck, lets just get him a special pass and send him off to Cuba or the Bahamas, no sense in him sitting around up here in the cold… ######, no wonder our police force is always looking for a bigger budget…..
