VPD officer charged with assault after cyclist punched

Here we go again -- let's watch the video first:


Incident took place in March, and this was the original news article:

Vancouver man filing complaint against VPD after punch | News1130

And now the VPD officer is getting charged with assault:

VPD officer charged with assault after cyclist punched | News1130

What is your take on the matter?

I think the punch was un-called for. Having 2 officers there, they should've been able to keep him in control, or they should've taken him to the ground if they felt like he was trying to be aggressive.

I don't think the officer should've punched him in the jaw. I hope the cop gets a suspension WITH NO PAY.

Ironically, the officer involved was previously praised by the British Transit police for bravely apprehending a violent mentally-ill person at the Tube (in London) and preventing “serious injuries to other people and members of the public.”

Vancouver police officer charged with assaulting cyclist during arrest (with video)

Quote:
Bhabha was recognized five years ago by British Transit police for bravely apprehending a violent mentally-ill man on London’s tube.

London-born Bhabha joined the VPD in 2008, the same year he received an award of excellence from the British Transport Police Federation for coming to the rescue of woman and her daughter being harassed by a mentally ill man.

The incident happened in March 2007 at King’s Cross Station when Bhabha, off duty at the time, confronted the man and was bitten in the cheek during the ensuing struggle. The man was eventually restrained with the help of five other officers and Bhabha was taken to hospital, where he had surgery to repair a wound to his face.

At his assailant’s trial, the judge reportedly praised Bhabha for preventing “serious injuries to other people and members of the public.”

I recall the original thread on RS. The dude on bike was being a bit of an asshole. Did he deserve the punch in the face? We never saw what led up to the punch. For all we know dude could have been a total fucktard. It was caught on video or was it planned?

Anyway, the world continues to spin.....................

If I punch someone in the jaw, I probably go to jail. He needs to be fired, charged and whatever consequence is the norm for when people do this kind of crime. An example needs to be set for police officers, this kind of behavior is unacceptable.

That's ridiculous. People don't go to jail for throwing a bunch.

As for a headline this should be a bigger issue than that punch imo

Vancouver officer should be fired for deceit, probe finds - British Columbia - CBC News

Quote:
Vancouver officer should be fired for deceit, probe finds

New Westminster's chief constable says a 13-year veteran of the Vancouver Police Department should be fired following allegations he lied during a homicide probe into the 2001 death of an Oak Bay man.

In 2001 Owen Padmore, 31, died of head injuries apparently sustained from a fall in his mother's Oak Bay home.

Two years ago, new information sparked a homicide investigation and a suspect was arrested and charged with manslaughter by Oak Bay police.

But that case mysteriously fell apart.

In July, CBC News learned an unidentified Vancouver officer, who is related to the prime suspect in the case, was suspended with pay in 2011.

New Westminster Police Chief Const. Dave Jones was assigned to investigate the case and in July substantiated several serious offences under the Police Act against the officer, including:

Two counts of deceit.
One count of neglect of duty.
One count of corrupt practice.
One count of improper disclosure of information.
Oak Bay police have confirmed the alleged interference compromised their homicide investigation.

On Thursday, Jones recommended the officer should be dismissed on two counts of deceit and suspended from duty without pay for 10 to 20 days on the other offences.

He was suspended 2 years ago and they're only calling for him to be fired.... -_-

If I punched someone in the face and got charged. I would likely be fired. I would 100% not be allowed to attain my CGA designation. The same CONSEQUENCES would occur if I got a DUI. Remember that girl who flashed her tits at the Canucks game? She lost her job because of that. These are the CONSEQUENCES normal citizens face when doing stupid things. I guess police officers don't have face the same CONSEQUENCES....

just like the Rodney king video. someone turns on a camera in the last 30 seconds and they see a cop hit a guy and they shit bricks about it being violent. like mg1 said, we don't know what happened prior. for the cop to use that kind of force, im sure he deserved it.

I had to give a statement to him back in june(if it wasn't him, then hes got a twin lol), and from what I remember he was extremely nice and professional.

Real life experience VS whats written in a book. If the police locked up every person who threw a punch we would need to built a lot more jails.

Agreed. I work in an office.
Yes he does risk his life at work but he also gets paid for it. Where does the line get drawn when someone who risks their life as a career steps out of line and ultimately has to leave the field due to their actions. It just seems like they get slaps on the wrists all the time and regular citizens have zero tolerance. I am very cynical when it comes to police and politics so I know I may have biased opinions. But I also know lots of people share my frustration.

It's not up to the police you idiot.

If you punch me, I can charge you with assault. Get you arrested (by the police). You get a criminal record. Then we can go to court and the judge will give you your punishment.

Learn the process.

Thank you for teaching me the process....

I was just talking about the big picture of my view of the police and how they are punished.

No need to call me an idiot. I assume you are going to school to become a lawyer or police officer? Just started first year Crim a few weeks ago?

Edit: Ooop Sorry Melloman! come at me broo

yeah he gets paid for it, but its not the old west where you can just pull out a revolver and shoot someone who you don't agree with, his job is to serve and protect, and this guy got the serve part lol. he puts his life in danger so everyone can stay safe at night. for me, im comfortable with how a police officer takes down anyone anyway so long as the person is not complying. ex. if the officer pulls over a car with a few people in it, has them all come out and sit on the curb except for the driver, talks with him etc...lets say one of the guys on the curb decides to stand up to say something. if I were that cop, my hand would be on my tazer(not pulled out...but on it) before he could get all the way up. if a cop is trying to give someone a command such as put your hands behind your back and to stop resisting, its not rocket science, you comply...every little flinch you make could put a million thoughts running through their head and have them tackle you to the ground.

but that's just my view. im all up for cops and the take downs and force they use. if they've given ample warning to not do something, or your flat out resisting. then fuck the person. they deserve every volt, bruise, or cut that comes from the take down.
