Whatever Happened To The RCMP??

The once internationally renowed Royal Canadian Mounted Police have fallen onto bad times - at many levels. From the upper ranks where problems with pension plan irregularities have occurred to the lower ranks where infants have been pepper sprayed and seniors tasered, Canada's national police force has fallen on bad times.

So - something has to be done to reel in this entity and to reforge them into something that Canadians can once again respect and not fear. Hopefully it is not too late.

Here is a sampling of what these characters have been up to lately:

Mountie disciplined for using Taser on senior. An RCMP officer in Kelowna, B.C., will be disciplined for using a Taser stun gun on a 68-year-old stroke victim over a parking violation.

Taser-wielding RCMP officer 'like kid with new toy,' woman says 'He couldn't wait to use it' wife claims of Mountie who shocked her husband, who is 68. Supt. Bill McKinnon said the incident grew out of a simple traffic stop that escalated.

Police Taser allegedly used for party fun
BRANDON -- Police pulled out a Taser weapon at a house party and zapped people who wanted to feel the jolt, officials have been told. The stun gun was reportedly brought by an on-duty officer to the party, where civilians were socializing with off-duty officers. Some partygoers asked to be Tasered, and allegedly they were.

RCMP Pepper Spray Infant!
Members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police used pepper spray on an Aboriginal mother and her seven month old baby on a British Columbia Indian Reserve!
