Crown withdraws criminal charges against Toronto cops accused of planting heroin
The Toronto star is reporting that "Four Toronto police officers walk away from more than two dozen perjury and obstruction-of-justice charges" over trial delays caused by information sharing problems between prosecutors and Toronto police professional standards, the unit that conducted an internal investigation that led to the charges. The police screwed up their own disclosure obligations so the cops charged walked.
Const. Michael Taylor, Const. Benjamin Elliot, Const. Jeffrey Tout and Det.-Const. Fraser Douglas walk away now, but what we do in life echos in eternity. Word.
