There’s a Fredericton blog that I read every so often called “freddybeach cabby”. It’s an interesting look at the world through the eyes of a Fredericton taxi driver.
most recent entry on his blog is very disturbing. IF it is true (and I
have no reason to believe otherwise) then it demands an investigation
by the internal affairs department at the Fredericton Police Department.
The entry, entitled “Ten Feet Tall and Bulletproof,”
was posted on Thursday of this week. It details very inappropriate
behaviour by a man who identified himself to the cab driver as a police
officer but who refused to provide any identification while verbally
abusing the driver and ultimately committing an assault upon his person
by slamming a door on the cab driver's leg.
The story is further complicated by the reported actions of the police officers who were called to the scene to investigate.
You can read the details yourself by clicking on either of the above links.
is about the gentlest word I can think of to describe the incident and
follow-up. For the sake of most police officers out there who are good
and decent people, I hope it’s resolved and quickly without further
abuse of authority.
