The Law is the Law

Posted on Mon, Aug 8, 2011 at 12:22 PM

As a police officer, many have had to enforce laws they didn't totally want to enforce, but they do it because it's the law and it's what they're paid to do. Not in the HRM though! I just had a chat with one of the 3 NON-patrolling officers that were shooting the breeze and getting their pictures taken down at the Buskers (rather than, you know, patrolling the area). Well, she informed me that the HRM cops do indeed enforce bylaws... but only if they FEEL they should be enforced. Really Ms.Police Officer? I didn't know you were a judge too! wow! Halifax cops have more power than any other cops, I guess. —Sick of Lazy Cops in HRM
