To Serve and NOT Protect

Came across this video captioned "Canadian citizens take down man with gun while female officer runs away screaming"

One of the most embarrassing things I've ever witnessed and I'm speechless..


Reminded me of this

Its embarrassing but cant force them to exercise on their time off. How do they enforce a fitness level? What if they have a condition that causes them to be obese? Cant fire them, police unions would protest.

Put it in their contract before signing them on? some areas already have a hard time recruiting good officers.

you do have to complete a fitness test before getting hired, i think they have to retake it every few years as well.

they had it set up for the auxiliaries at the YMCA. they let me run it and it was not easy even for a pretty fit guy like myself.

Shouldn't even have to resort to a evaluation. If you choose to become a police officer, you should hold yourself to a higher standard inherently.

It's disgusting to see such people become police officers only to result in this type of reaction when they are actually required to perform their job and duty. Her weight and reaction as a police officer is just pure selfishness.

Even if we give her the "shes only human" benefit of doubt, which police training is all about overcoming, we should now expect her to change roles, revamp, or even resign.

While I agree she's over weight, that has nothing to do with her running away from the situation.

She was probably going to take cover behind the car and draw her firearm, had the suspect broke free from the two civilians.

That being said, yes she's fat. Yes she ran away like a bitch.

Geeknerd nailed it. Policing is a job where a certain fitness level is inherently a requirement, for the officers own safety, the safety of those they work with, and the public which they are sworn to defend.

I know there is a physical test you have to pass to become an officer, and someone else mentioned that it is run after you are hired as well. At the end of the day it's a requirement to do the job, it's like becoming a warehouse attendant or something where you clearly have to lift boxes and not being capable, you can easily be ousted.

A fire fighter is another example, your fitness level directly affects your ability to do your job, and not being able to do your job makes you a liability to those around you.

I know about the tests before being hired... the question is enforcing it AFTER they are hired.

I know this is correct for firefighters, I assume it is correct for PO's as well.

ah, the internet
it's easy to armchair quarterback
yes I agree the officer demonstrated a cowardly act and but put yourself in her shoes with adrenaline coursing through your body, in that situation are you sure you'll ALWAYS make the split second decision to possibly sacrifice your life for public safety?

I believe it's good thing camera phones make policemen/women more accountable...but they def have a tough job. Can you imagine your customer/client or bystander whipping out their phones and record you at every interaction they have with you at work and if you make a slip up it'll be posted on social media? I assume not everyone's perfect at their job, but hey good luck if you end up going viral on Vancity Buzz!

As a police officer, she signed up for putting herself into potentially dangerous situations for the greater good of society. We may as well not have police if they're going to run away screaming and let civilians attempt to restrain and disarm weapon-wielding criminals.

I don't have to make that decision, I'm not a first responder. I didn't sign up for putting the safety of the public ahead of my own safety.

I said put yourself in her shoes you don't have to make that decision so it makes it easy to be judgemental
yes and she was probably sworn in when choosing this profession or taking the job
but when push comes to shove (literally)...I don't know if I can count on every single officer to get the duty done. does that mean she should be publicly grilled for it? Maybe, maybe not.

Like I said, we can give her the "shes only human, benefit of doubt" but we have a right to armchair because its a public servant job paid by our taxes.

Just the fact that she chose to become a field police officer yet also remain extremely overweight is revealing enough of the sense of duty she has to the public. Maybe she loves the calmer side of policing but too bad, she doesn't get a choice in which aspects of policing she gets to participate.

Also, I am asking for accountability after the fact, as in reassignment or retraining or resignation. But of course once they are 'in', they can ride the union and only quit when they feel like doing so.

I dunno, it looks like she ran up, assessed the situation, ran over to the squad car to get something, then came back. It sounds like it's the GF of the dude getting beat down that's screaming. It's easy to call someone a coward when you're watching a video online and not invloved in the situation.

As much as I want to get on board with bashing fat pigs I can't see the merit in this one. :shrug:

Watch the very start of the video in which she is already hesitant and taking steps in and out within a cover of a car. Maybe its strategic formation and teamwork but i feel like her partner is reacting the correct way; cautious but assessing the situation up close and finding an "in", while she is not.
