Ontario's Special Investigations Unit is probing what a judge has called the unlawful 2008 arrest and strip search of a 27-year-old woman by Ottawa police officers.
Notice the qualification in there? Probing "what a judge has called" the unlawful arrest and strip search? Why is it necessary to insert that? Is there still some question about whether it was unlawful?
The matter has been heard and adjudicated in a court of law. The court has ruled. The question has been settled.
But, well, y'know, I guess it's just one judge, and well, that's just, like, his opinion, man ...
Oh, and, uh ... Vern? How's that internal probe going?
And while we're on the subject of cops and uncomfortable questions, anybody seen Julian Fantino lately? Has he emerged to start answering questions about illegal wiretapping of police board members and their friends, or is he still hiding in the Conservative Candidate Protection Program (h/t Jeff Jedras)?
