Porn = suspension with no pay. Assault = suspension with pay.


Last week, Kelowna RCMP constable Geoff Mantler was charged with two counts of assault.

One of the “alleged” assaults was caught on video, and you can decide for yourself how strong the case against him is.

Manter is presumed innocent until he’s proven guilty. In the meantime, the RCMP have suspended him . . . . with pay!

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, a school worker who moonlights as a porn actress gets asked for her autograph by a student.

She refuses the request, and asks the student to keep hush about her activities.

Apparently the student doesn’t. School officials find out, and she is suspended . . . without pay!

Let’s get this straight.

If you are a member of a police department, and there is an allegation that you committed a serious crime (and yes, I believe kicking someone in the head while that person is defenceless is a serious crime), you’ll be suspended but you’ll keep getting paid while awaiting trial.

That occurs even when the allegation is caught on video.

But if you engage in an act which is legal, and someone finds out because they’re surfing for porn, you’ll be suspended.

Does this make sense to anyone?

My thought is this:

If there are reasonable grounds to charge a police officer with a serious allegation, especially an allegation of violence, he or she should be suspended . . . without pay.

If, at the end of the day, the officer is found “not guilty” of the allegation, then his pay (along with the appropriate increases and interest) should be paid back.

What do you think?

    i hate the rcmp because of what they can get away with, i can’t believe in a country like canada, who is always crying about human rights that because you become an rcmp you are above the law and can do what ever you want to others and the punishment is suspended with pay what a joke

    we as Canadians have to come together and force the goverment to do something, they get away with murder, look what they did to that man in vancouver, they killed him we all saw it on the national and what did they get suspended with pay and one of them went on to kill another young man. he the rcmp officer hit the young man on a motor bike and killed him, the officer then left the accident, leaving his two children in the car, he left because he was drunk. and guess what again he was suspended with pay. God i wish someone would punish me like that. should of became a rcmp officer, and every time i wanted a paid vacation all i would of had to do was brake the law. but ya know what i wouldn’t want to be a piece of shit like them, really
