Under the file, bad cops should be gotten rid of

The shooting, sources say, followed a “heated argument” and “fist fight” between a constable and a detective sergeant responding to a traffic accident around Roland Rd. and Effingham St. in Pelham, 22 kilometres south of St. Catharines.Wounded Const. Nathan Parker was in hospital fighting for his life Thursday while Det.-Sgt. Shane Donovan was determined to be the subject officer by the province’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU).
Sources told the Toronto Sun that Donovan was losing a fight before the shooting. Up to five bullets were allegedly discharged from a police officer’s gun.

Sources told the Toronto Sun Parker has had a troubled past of police act charges and discipline issues.
Policing insiders say Parker racked up Police Services Act convictions, including for violence against prisoners, during his career.
He was docked 120 hours in 2015 after pleading guilty to discreditable conduct and unnecessary use of force against a prisoner.
In 2012, he was docked 60 hours pay after conducting his own investigation into a commanding officer who had been cleared of wrongdoing from a previous incident.
In 2011, Parker was found guilty of using unnecessary force and in 2008, he was docked 90 days pay for arresting a cyclist without cause.

If only there had been some red flags about this one officer.

When I first heard about this incident, I thought it was a case of mistaken identity, not an intentional act to kill a fellow cop

This story makes the police protecting bad apples look like the catholic bishops and Vatican protecting their bad apples. Who says people can't keep dirty secrets?
