  1. Im glad they actually found a real DUI. The idiots at OPP Brockville pulled me over for being Sober. And the Officer said he smelled booze when there was none. No roadside test..just a WRONG assumption. These guys need to go for retraining and a course on how to treat people.

  2. Lyon you are lucky that you are not in Ottawa and the other major cities because police brutality is something else including in the US. These people suffer from PTSD and they have to take it out on someone and that is on the general public. The cops that we once knew to serve and protect are no longer. They serve the rich no good for nothings in society and we are just slaves to them.

  3. Agreed Jules. In my case the officer caused PTSD. Little to no respect now.
