Police Need More Support From The Courts
An article in the Vancouver Sun certainly raises the question as to whether the justice system is supporting those we ask to uphold our laws.
Two men who left an officer unconscious were given what amounts to a slap on the wrist and a stern tongue lashing by the justice system.
Members of the public are all too quick to say the police use excessive force while doing a job they would never undertake themselves. In this case the officer could easily have been killed and the sentence hardly says the system supports our officers as it should.
