Victoria police exceed limits of their duties

Re: Five VicPD officers named in civil lawsuit (News, Jan. 21)

VicPD like other Canadian police services have many areas of expertise. Victoria’s is the use of excessive force.

Excessive force is the result of two things: the thug-like mentality that comes with zero-tolerance policing; and police management who set the standard.

VicPD with eventually run out of spin and will then be forced to look at how it provides policing.

As a former cop, here is a tip that will keep you away from being a victim of a violence: stay away from VicPD.
