Squeaky wheel got action on carding
Since the implementation by our provincial government requiring police officers to ask permission from the criminal element to converse with them, my police friends have withdrawn from any contact with that segment of society.
That is unless of course they are dispatched to a crime in progress. The days of patrolling in their cars and looking for suspicious activities are now gone. They are tired of the criticism by people who have no idea of what they do. They are tired of being videotaped the moment they step from their cruisers.
Yes, the “squeaky wheel” has had an affect. Officers now have adopted the saying of “no contact with the public, no complaint from the public!” Michael Csoke, Mount Hope
