Caribana 07

Postby York » Sun Aug 05, 2007 11:25 pm

I was in downtown Toronto throughout the weekend and I thought TPS and the other participating services did a great job. Everywhere you looked there seemed to be a group of officers keeping a watchful eye. As we can see, the result was a relatively peaceful Caribana.

A little bit of: :drinking: :rant:
Followed by a little bit of police: :shame: :swords: :boxer:
But not too much of: :pistols:
Overall: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Why is he a moron? It's about community policing and putting on a friendly image for the public. Hell I posed for tones of pictures yesterday mostly with Japanese and Chinese tourist. Given the recent "bad press" TPS got from the soccor thing I think it's great that so many of there members are willing to take a couple of minutes out to show the softer side of the department.

Yeah, that picture isn't so bad. I've seen a lot worse...the ones were a uniformed officer is dancing, those make me cringe.

I'm just glad I don't have to work that event ever again.

The Police are there to do their job, not as a novelty. Do they know who they're posing for a picture with? Is one a prostitute? An organized crime associate? A wanted person? There are so many ways that a "posed" picture could come back to haunt someone and has. I think the Officer appears very unprofessional.

And about the officers that pose with the kids from Regant Park for community events? The officers that pose with the "special" kids for special olympics? The officers that pose for a pic with the big business owner etc?

Whose to say the kid from Regant Park isn't a gang banger or will grow up to be one? The special kid could be pimping themself out on the side or swallowing drugs into this country for a living.. and lets not forget the big business owner could eventually be convicted of a crime in the US.

Don't get me wrong CO I understand what you are saying but to call the officer a moron I think is a little harsh. I don't see why posing for a Caribana photo should have any more negative connections than posing for any other event that gets put on in this city.
