  1. thats BS COPS hide their name if it was an everyday citizen he wud b expose .that law should be changed Too many laws that protect the cops

  2. An “Airsoft” gun is not a firearm… Oh Cornwall Police Service.

  3. Not so Albert. In domestic situations, the names are usually withheld to protect the identity of the victims.

  4. Albert Maheu….no the name would not have been released if it was an everyday citizen. Releasing the person charged name would essentially be releasing the victim’s name as well.

    Lassie….the definition of a firearm has changed. It doesn’t have to be a true firearm for someone to be charged. Just look at the people charged with offenses using a fake or replica firearm.

    BTW, I hate auto – correct.

  5. I do not trust cops at all and Cornwall’s cops in particular. I remember the stories that my husband came home with while on taxi and going to one of his friend’s who owned a pizza place. OMG the things that went on would make many people shake their heads and lose all respect for all of them from the RCMP, provincial all the way down to the municipal. I know way too much and have absolutely no respect for any of them.

  6. It is never a good idea to paint ALL from a profession with the same brush. Just because some do questionable things doesn’t mean they all do.

  7. I will have my say.. and justice will prevail against…. the cornwall police and what they did to me..a disabled veteran lady…with too big a heart…and too big a memory for numbers…and witnesses to boot…you did not get away with it a second you whispered to your buddy as I walked out of the courtroom…and I will offer you soap on a rope when you go to jail..because what you and your buddy did to me is more than a crime……it is down and dirty…and it is never over according to chief Blair in Toronto and Judge Jacobucci…and send this message to your mayor…and Parkinson..or whatever his name is…,chief of police there…because it is not over….not ever…God bless..
