Aww, Poor Police

“That continuous accountability, continuously being in the public eye, and that having to be infallible … it puts a lot of pressure on our police officers, and contributes to their mental health.”

Did he mean “poor mental health”?

Imagine being watched all of the time. What kind of stress would that cause?

Sorry for the Sun link, a friend at Postmedia shared it.

One response to “Aww, Poor Police

  1. That sort of self-serving self-pity is no excuse not to keep the police under regular surveillance. It is only thanks to citizens’ cameras and cctv that there was any justice in the toronto police murder of Sammy Yatim in 2013.
