A sad tale of injustice

My comments about; “Let’s talk about policing,” Peninsula News Review, March 20, 2013.

As a former police officer I was touched by Mr. MacIntyre’s sad tale of injustice. He is obviously a man who knows how policing should be done and to whom.

I can understand him telling the police his story but I am more than a little surprised that he would write about his intimate moment with his hockey tickets for all the readers of the local paper to see.

Such moments are so precious and private; it has to be considered rude for the police officer to have interfered.

Perhaps some good video equipment on the police car could have prevented this injustice.

Distracted driving is a very real issue in the world of today; people die from it.

Perhaps our lawmakers should give some thought to those who cuddle hockey tickets while they drive.
