Vancouver Police Department In Action... this case, laying the smackdown on an apparently sober firefighter.

I say, kudos to the photographer. I've gotten the evil eye from cops just for taking pictures of grafitti. Anytime a cop comes within twenty paces of me I stop what I'm doing and stare at the sidewalk until they've passed. It seems that any movement enrages them.

That's an amazing display of small-penis syndrome. Is it just me, or do Vancouver cops seem to have something to prove?

The off-duty guy who protested the obvious use of excessive force and was beaten senseless for it. Amazing. That would be one time when the BC propensity for not being able to mind ones own business was totally justified.

The problem with the Vancouver Police Department, as with most of the police in this country, is that no matter what they do (murder, rape, reselling confiscated drugs stolen from the evidence room) the worst that'll happen to them is an 'internal inquiry' and maybe a couple of weeks' suspension with pay.

The cameraman was lucky he wasn't also beaten.

Though in all fairness, that time when I was assaulted they were pretty good with me.
