In the rural area to the east of the city I live in, some residents talk about certain local cops, including ones high up on the force, driving around under the influence, getting let off by their brothers in blue…
One standard for the general public; another for themselves… Not justice, but “just us”; kinda like grandstanding “Drug War”, “tough on crime” politicians who admit to youthful indiscretions involving marijuana, yet crusade for ever-tougher penalties on even casual users…
At least in this case, some form of justice appears to have been done… But I’m going to wait and see if they boot him off the force, permanently, and charge him, though, before cheering.
(BTW, ‘Finest’ what? Why do police call themselves ‘Toronto’s Finest’ or ‘New York’s Finest’, etc.?
What the hell does that mean, anyway? Finest citizens? Finest people?
Finest cops? Well, they’re the only cops; that makes them the finest – and the worst! Like I’m an only child, so I’m my parents’ oldest and youngest child; their most favourite and least favourite.
Stupid, that – and all them who label themselves such. The fact such idiocy has caught on everywhere only goes to show how many stupid people there are, in the force, everywhere. All with badges; ick.)
