> Police were operating a holiday-season check stop in Hay River when the ambulance, carrying a medevac flight crew, passed by late in the evening of Saturday, December 18.
>Despite the ambulance being actively engaged in a medevac, officers stopped and breathalyzed the driver before allowing the vehicle to continue.
For fuck sake.
I’m curious if their lights were on or not…
That would make a big difference in my opinion..
I’ve seen RCMP giving an ambulance driver a speeding ticket before, with the lights on.. Gave the driver the ticket at the hospital.. *shaking my head*
God damn it guys…
When good intentions meet poor judgment magic occurs.
Is anybody willing to look at these things and notice that we’ve gone overboard trying to go after intoxicated driving?
I’m in the US, but these cases are global. May be less common in Canada, but bogus DUIs are very much a thing in the US. In other words, the person isn’t intoxicated at all.
Lot of people and lives getting messed up for this and it’s honestly debatable how big the problem is these days.
Of course, I’m not talking about dumbasses that cause accidents or blow something serious (0.08-0.10). Also, we haven’t figured out medicine at all so now it’s basically against the law to get sick.
Entirely unsurprised. The RCMP is a bunch of useless powertrippers at best. The only thing they’re good at is beating up indigenous people and/or anyone who opposes the oil industry.
Would they have checked any other cops going through the checkpoint, you know in all fairness. I doubt it.
