Nonsense - Castanet is reporting the same as other news outlets.

Sgt. Norm Flemming, so another Sgt gets caught, the last one was stealing cocaine from the evidence room, now this one gets caught assaulting someone. Seems like they have a problem in Merritt with bad cops.

Charged, found guilty, drawn and quartered, burnt.

All before an investigation.

If there are problems at the detachment, it would be a very good reason to question the leadership/management of that particular detachment.
Why do people who fancy themselves "fiscal conservatives" not scream at hidden debt accumulated in the past dozen years? Or, do they only object to spending on social programs?

That does not matter, it's the bad apples that make them all look bad, end of story.

You are way off base on this, even after the other Sgt admitted to stealing cocaine nothing was done to him, he retired.

Everyone deserves there day in court once charged with a crime. If found guilty then sentenced or innocent and set free.
Should be the same for everyone including police officers.

Yes, I'm guilty of pre judging people and I try to keep it in my head... doesn't always work.

Added later: some crimes triggers anger by me i.e crimes against children, disable & the elderly.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

People get charged in British Columbia, under the prosecution/no prosecution criteria guidelines, in particular the likelihood of securing a conviction. That having been said, charged individuals are regularly found not guilty at trial. The premise that everyone is innocent until proven guilty is absolute. Ergo: The Sergeant at Merritt should be afforded the same presumption of innocence.... especially by people who have only the news item [of him being charged] as the basis of their judgement of guilt.
