Police Misconduct Study
Recently I was speaking with a former prison guard who referred to a US study where women were more likely to be sexually assaulted dating a cop then a civilian. He said everyone in the industry here in Canada knows about it but they don't talk about it because the public is supposed to have confidence in law enforcement. Although I haven't found the study yet I have found many similar studies that raise a valid concern about blind faith in anyone. Everyone needs to be accountable. Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Although most of the links are to studies in the US, we know the problem is here in Canada as well. Both class action sexual harassment laws suits as well as the RCMP bullying class action law suit is the tip of the iceberg. Dianne Rock was gang raped on the Pickton Farm. Gang raped means more than one perp. She was gang raped by bikers and cops. This will not go away. Everyone needs to be accountable. Including the police.

Police Have a Much Bigger Domestic-Abuse Problem Than the NFL. "The National Center for Women and Policing cites two studies that found that at least 40% of police officer families experience domestic violence, in contrast to 10% of families in the general population."
