    Funny thing is, had they not done this, the public would have lost their minds about how corrupt this guy was and how the police did nothing.

    Still, this is precedent setting.

      heh cop’s lives: “You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain”. Whatever the government does, there’s always someone that’s going to be unhappy about something. Damn if you do, damn if you don’t.

    “La Presse claimed throughout the process that ‘the officers’ requesting these warrants went farther than any other law enforcement in Canada’s history to uncover a journalist’s confidential sources.”

    “Djelidi may have been involved with leaking sensitive information to the press, among other questionable activities.”

    Who requested those warrants? Not him, right?

    A veteran Vancouver police detective, who in 2015 received a special citation for his work on a sexual exploitation investigation, has been charged with sexual exploitation.

    Det. Const. James Fisher was arrested Wednesday and faces three counts of sexual exploitation, one count of sexual assault, one count of breach of trust and one count of attempt to obstruct justice, according to court documents obtained by CBC News.

    Palmer said a fellow officer came forward with concerns about Fisher in March of this year and an investigation was immediately called at that time.”
