To Harper's Base. The RCMP Are Not Infallible

With people like John Snobelen, Michael Den Tandt, Monty Solberg and Tim Hudak, all coming out in defense of the police, this is something they might want to think about:

An internal RCMP report shows that 56 members of the force were formally disciplined during the 2008-2009 fiscal year for a range of code of conduct violations, including soliciting a prostitute, sexual assault, masturbating in a vehicle and impaired driving.

Four officers — all constables — were ordered to resign. Others received reprimands and forfeitures of pay for up to 10 days.

Another 231 members of the force were informally disciplined for less serious cases. They typically result in reprimands, transfers or some form of counselling.

One more reason why we need a full public inquiry into the G-20 violence, to help restore their good name.
