 Yeah no kidding huh . Poncho..

The scary part and the part they should look out for as far as disclosure goes is this statement below!!:

 

Francoeur claimed that in order to fulfil their monthly quotas, police were told to ignore all but the most serious calls on some days, and instead focus on handing out fines.
The union has been silent since the new mayor made the announcement.
 
 
Who got to make those decision's?
Who got to play god?
Who got the buck passed on to them? via fire rescue whambalance?
Wonder how many wrongfull deaths took place well they ignored the calls to instead extort the people who's taxes go toward paying their salaries pension's etc.
When someone really needed the service they claim to provide?
 
Conflict of interest to say the least (althow could write a book) which brings the administration of any alleged justice in to dis repute.

I remember reading about Toronto Police having a quota system not too many years back (after they had denied for YEARS that such a system existed). 

As I recall, the way it worked (according to what I read) was that a Toronto cop could finish his shift early/go home once their quota was reached, BEFORE THE END OF THEIR SHIFT.  I couldn't believe it when I read it.

Potentially we were (still are???) paying the cops for a full 12hr shift and they could be done and home in 6 if they handed out enough tickets ... meaning NO LONGER READILY AVAILABLE IF AN EMERGENCY AROSE (unless you call them back and pay them time and a half ON TOP OF their regular pay).  Just another example of our tax dollars being spent in the best interest of the tax payer (yeah ... excuse me while I puke).

 

 

Quick Google search found the article.  Turns out it was from 2006 and in Rexdale (Toronto).   http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/rexdale-cops-had-traffic-ticket-quota-1.577130

A cop told me once, that they didn't have a quota, so they could write as many as they wanted.
