I've been pulled over because of roadblocks but no issues. Never been pulled over randomly.

Drive a cab for a living... Smells like more than just booze..

Most of my pull overs and road check stops have been in at the wheel of one , not to mention MOST of my "problems" courtesy of the RCMP, on the South Island to boot.

Somethings wrong when a guy has a problem with just one of 5 forces (at the time)...

The RCMP has it's bad "members" Fancy...You can deny it , but you're not being honest with yourself...
I payed attention in High school....But not to what they were trying to teach me..

I don't understand why so many here believe that the cops have nothing better to do than harass this lady . I personally think that they probably did smell MJ . Just because they didn't find any doesn't mean it wasn't there 20 minutes before. I don't really understand why it took 9 hours , or why she was arrested before they actually found a crime . (which they never did ) I wonder if this lady was "known to police" ?

I would like to hear the members side of the story. She says she was roughly manhandled. If she was , I wonder why.
I get the feeling that when she was asked to step out of the vehicle , she did not respond " why certainly officer , and yes I do give you permission to search my car "
every crash involves at least 1 idiot

It is truly sad that some people will never grasp the fact that the rCMP have a percentage of officers who are Poorly trained Arrogant power hungry fools .

And if you have been paying attention, the rCMP have a reputation Of sending those officers to British Columbia In order to hide them from the rest Of Canada.

Even when they're fined or even pled guilty of assault

People will not let go of their childhood fantasies Of what they believe the rCMP are

You assume an awful lot on no information - I have never denied "bad" members. Just like I don't deny there is imperfection in every workforce - that would just be silly. Some people aren't cut out to do every job and some are terminated after a trial basis. Times are changing and some work forces aren't keeping up according to public opinion. Policies need to be amended now and then.

The old excuse that

Every workplace has their bad employees And the RCMP is no different
Does not help the RCMP regain respect from the bulk of the Canadian citizens.

He merely condones misconduct And three or four year paid holidays :eyeballspin:

It's not an old excuse - it is reality. Employers have had to deal with incompetent employees - some do better than others. The RCMP Act may be one item that should be under the microscope.

As they say....there is always more the the story.

While I agree that the lengthy detention in cells was not justified,I believe the initial arrest was.

The judge said that Ms. Silverstone has "lost trust in the police" based on the actions of this one member. I strongly suspect that this was not, and will not, be the last time that her life choices will find her in contact with police.

The RCMP admitted her arrest and detention were wrong and the seizure and search of her vehicle were unlawful.


What makes you think the initial arrest was justified?

Yes, but this thread isn't about the lovely Ms. Silverstone's character. It's about why this arrest cost us poor taxpayers $15,000 + legal fees.

Sadly even when the RCMP have been proven in a court Of law of misconduct.

One of their members tries misdirection and blames the victim :dyinglaughing: sadly I guess it's standard operating procedure.

It is also standard operating procedure for the Canadian taxpayers to paid for their mistake :eyeballspin:
