Chief would throw his police officers under ‘the bus’

Here we go again! Another revelation brought to us by way of another headline from the ‘STANDARD’

Whatever the ‘STANDARD’ newspaper’s motive they have decided to host the ‘first of what will be a monthly sit-down with Niagara Regional Police Chief Jeff McGuire that will be broadcast online.

Now isn’t that just great! 

Our Chief of Police immediately launches into a diatribe of suddenly depriving a police officer and family their expected income predicated on a simple accusation (NOT A CONVICTION).

There are many ways to address this issue without such draconian action.

Did the wizards of the ‘STANDARD’ notice that the chief, while ‘gung ho’ on throwing a police officer, and family, under ‘the bus’ for simply being accused, he completely avoided the bigger question of why he keeps dozens of convicted criminals on our NRP; some of which are known and convicted for violence against innocent citizens.

Regardless of whatever qualities this chief of the Niagara Regional Police has, it is inconceivable that he would not see that this is a juxtaposition that cannot be reconciled.

 We are sad to report that Mr. Haskell’s customary comments under The St. Catharines' ‘STANDARD’ articles are now being blocked or immediately removed.
