Rookie Toronto Cop harrassed for arresting a fellow officer.

An example of why we need to rethink policing. The very expectation that cops will not arrest other cops — especially on the “minor stuff” — breeds a culture of intransigence. Some of the acts described merit more that simply misconduct charges, they probably violate the criminal code.

Given this level of reluctance it seems unlikely that we’ll get much restitution for the G20 fiasco, not this year at any rate.
