    Too bad she wasn't dressed up as Wonder Woman. They could have confiscated her Golden Lasso and gotten the truth out of everyone. :lol3
    Glad no one was hurt at least...

    Might be a reason they are city cops and not RCMP, is it just me or did this come to mind for others, sad state of affairs

    I suspect it is a pastime for many across Canada and will state my position in that I am not a fan of Trudeau in the least. I based my view on his character, arrogance and policies that seem to be more about what can be made to be popular vs what is good for Canada and the long game beyond the next election cycle. Which isn't unlike pretty much every other party.

    As for the Lethbridge cops....I noticed the PR kicked in very quickly, keep her bloodied face away from the camera, block the camera with the truck, etc.

    You hear how tough it is to pass the many tests to become a cop and this makes you wonder about the tests themselves?

    Politicians are pigs at the trough, doesn't matter if they're liberals, conservatives, greens, whatever.
    Picking one side or the other is like picking one nostril or the other, you're still going to get a booger.

    As for the over-reacting cops in this story - you get all kinds of people in uniform and unfortunately some of them are just really fucking stupid.
    I can't really think of any profession that this doesn't apply.

    They knew they fucked up when he tried to get the guy recording to move away. When he knew the space was so empty that he was still going to be recorded and he blocked with the truck then he was just confirming the stupid. Guy holding the phone was no rocket scientist but he was smarter than the cop who thought he was in charge and could bully him away.

    Motorcycle helmets artfully done as Boba Fett helmets.....in a thread about a Stromtrooper getting roughed up on "May the 4th be with you" Starwars day.... yes it's humour.... sometimes the absurdity of an event is best dealt with with humor and not offense. No one is condoning the idiot officers. Besides, we all know Stormtroopers can't hit anything.

    We are all being trained to live in a constant state of fear!

    It started with a terrorism - see something, report it......now it has moved on to "viral" terrorism where absolutely everyone is a suspect (no turban required) and we all need to be afraid of everyone else - see someone breaking social distancing, report it.

    This particular episode started with those people (lacking common sense) phoning 911 to report a storm trooper with a plastic gun and ended with sharp point of the state enforcing absolute authority (which is their mandate). Just wait till we get to the point where it is shoot first, questions can come later.

    We are entering a time where there will be no tolerance for any kind of non-compliance to authority by anyone.

    Yes this was dumb, by our old understanding of civility, but the civility bar is rapidly changing and we are being trained to accept this as the new "normal".

    I must be one of the few guys over the age of 50, who have never seen a Star Wars movie & thus how I missed the "Boba Fett" helmets :hide

    I get your point and cannot disagree. But I do have some doubt these 3 misfits were organized to the point of acting for the state, more likely just adrenal-charged and lacking basic judgement.

    I read from both the CBC and the Rebel (among many other sources) just to see what the polar extremes are talking about. There is obviously a bias in each and facts and opinions are spun to fit that bias but I find it useful to see the range of points of view.

    That.
    Who calls that in?
    And really, once the gun is down and her hands are up, it might have been a good idea to try to talk to her (and her boss).
    Especially when there's three of you...

    Love the Boba Fett helmets though!!
