Canadian Police officer Nick Motycka went viral for vid saying politicians using Ottawa cops as ‘hired goons’.
What I saw was the police doing politicians dirty work like hired goons. This goes against every reason why I chose this mostly thankless, difficult, traumatizing career with terrible hours…
What is happening in Ottawa, with the clear political influence on the police to physically exert political will on peaceful protesters for nothing more than possible political gain, is so very wrong on so many levels.
[Saying] ‘I was just following orders’ is no longer an excuse. It is time to stand up and speak out by refusing to breach your fellow citizens’ fundamental charter rights. You signed up to help people. Stand with your fellow Canadians and say enough is enough. There is no doubt that we are all part of history right now. I have one question for you: Which side do you want to be on?”
