Cop Killer

Published by at 6:29 pm under Canada,Current Events

I get the feeling that if I did the things that this cop had done, I’d be in prison for a very, very long time. But I don’t know if he’s going to serve any time at all.

RCMP Corporal Benjamin Robinson was driving drunk when he slammed into Orion Hutchinson, killing him. His lawyer suggested a contributing factor might be his involvement in the Robert Dziekansky case from 2007.

So, the cop’s defense amounts to this:

“I’m a sad drunk. Part of my deep booze-dulled sadness stems from my incompetent leadership of the team that killed a frightened and confused Polish immigrant at Vancouver International Airport. Ever since that man died, I really hoped that I wouldn’t inadvertently kill anyone else. Sorry. It looks like I did it again. But I mentioned that I’m a sad drunk, right? So maybe you can find it in your heart to go easy on me? Also, can we get this hearing over soon? My next shift for protecting and serving the public is in three hours and I really was hoping to get a couple of beers in me to mellow out. I can promise you that I will try very hard not to kill any other innocent people while on duty.”

    No problems here. Just a quick roundy round of the Healing Circle and Bengie will be just fine and ready to have another go.

    If you going to kill anyone regardless of your occupation in Canada, do it with a car…..I guess it’s easier to make it look like an accident…

    Shouldn’t the headline read “Killer Cop”? Your way, I thought ‘officer down’ with fatal results.

    Agree this man should get the same penalties one of the public would have received. Not just drunk and killing a motorcyclist, but deceitful enough to cover up his crime.

    “Cop Killer” is a play on words. Just trying to mess with our interpretation of a pretty standard phrase.

    I sincerely hope this guy gets what he deserves.
