FIRST allow me to laugh at the idea …. How do we know our “finest” officers will have the device on when they are beating the crap of a innocent man or women in the streets of Toronto?
Would there be any “discipline measures” in place that will include up to dismissal if they refuse to wear the cameras ?
Toronto Police Association president Mike McCormack questioned the recommendation, saying he would rather see police dollars spent on hiring new officers. “We haven’t hired in three years, and with the hard-fought police dollars, I’d rather see the resources put into boots on the ground,”
My good friend the T.P.S Union head thinks the other way around, he put the idea on the trash can already…
The suggested idea may or may be welcome by the board.. we will be watching this isue with great interest..
