Losing job as a cop

From time to time, one reads about a charge against a copper, and he might lose his job.
I think all coppers should get some slack, if they go over the line, etc. A good example was in Toronto recently at the strike rally at City Hall. Chief Blair was all blood and thunder about what he was going to do re the cops wearing their uniforms to the rally. When the dust cleared, they got some days off with no pay, which was fine.

I think the Toronto cops were doing a great job, when you consider the Poice Services Board that was over them. But, that's a story for another day.

Give cops some slack--they are under more pressure than any other member of society.
