    OPP East are relentless on their twitter fed (actually they probably all are) publicizing when the motoring public screw up and how they are there to catch the scofflaws.

    Because, its all about "Public Safety"

    Yet when one of their own screws up ........Silence.

    "But SIU director Tony Loparco, in a decision released Tuesday, said the evidence is insufficient to lay criminal charges"

    I swear....... and they wonder why we get so pissed at law enforcement. What would be "sufficient" evidence?

    Next time they tweet about speeding and speedsters, just keep copying and pasting the link to that article lol

    Isn't the speed limit on 401 100km/h? Was the officer charged with speeding and points on their license?

    If this was the US I'd say it's a maneuver to minimize the evidence that can be brought in to a lawsuit but since this is Canada I'm sure you can't sue the Queen...er government bureaus.

    hope the injured person recovers quickly.

    cops do that all the time everywhere. it's always different. there are a few ok ones, but far inbetween

    Not everyone buys into our Pretty Boy Prime Minister's pixie dust and love mantra.

    Canada is very diverse and what's important to one community is unimportant to the next. Only Trudeau and his selfie taking minions don't get it.

    This area of Ontario is Hillbilly Country. Where the pressing issues are if Ford or Chevy rules, what boat, snowmobile or atv should I get.

    They aren't interested in men that think they are women, women that think they are men, or A Holes (Politicians) that think they should tell them how to live,

    In American terms this is Republican country. Trump has lots of Canadian supporters here. Trudeau has very few.

    There are now and will always be bigots everywhere. Everyone is bigoted somehow against someone. Everyone, even the most “spiritually evolved” and enlightened open-arms person. It’s human nature.

    Well said. I totally agree.

    The "Spiritually Evolved" will never admit it.

    Hopefully we can rise above it by honest evaluation of our actions and motivations. Just because I would love to run some jerk off the road doesn't mean I actually do it. Or just because my gut reaction to something or another could be considered bigoted doesn't mean I go and take action on it.

    Now what do you suppose the conclusion would be had the driver been a civilian??? I'm thinking they would find that criminal charges ARE warranted.
    Same thing happens here too with regards to LEOs causing serious accidents.

    Maybe the LEO was too busy hunting RDs and looking at their Spectre Elite?

    I'm not 100% sure but I don't think HTA charges are criminal charges.

    The OPP officer might have been charged with Careless Driving or something similar which wouldn't be considered a criminal charge. Same as a civilian who doors something like this.

    My uneducated guess.
