WHEN POLICE OFFICERS LIE
First of all, congratulations to Kim Schofield for having the determination and skill to expose this so clearly in the trial. Second of all, don’t be surprised or shocked. “Reporters David Bruser and Jesse McLean exposed more than 100 cases of police dishonesty in courts across Canada.” In my experience the false creation of a pretext to search clients’ vehicles is almost the norm. Unjustified searches and officers lying on the witness stand undermines trust in and perverts the legal process and makes them no better than the criminals they say they’re protecting us from.
With four officers charged with obstruction of justice, Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders has done well in leaving no stone unturned to catch rogue cops.
