CONST. ANDREW ROBSON APPEALS CONVICTION
Interesting when you compare today's posting with yesterday's. Yesterday dealt with an O.P.P. officer who came within an inch of killing a citizen due to the officer's careless driving. Today's post about Constable Robson deals with marijuana theft and use. Officer Robson now has a criminal conviction and his employers the Waterloo Regional Police Service appear hell bent on firing him. The victim in the first case is pretty clear but not so much in Officer Robson's case. Today's Waterloo Region Record carrys this story "Police Act charges against Robson delayed".
The separate Police Act charges will be delayed until after the disposition of Officer Robson's appeal. He is appealing both his conviction and sentence. A major issue for Robson is the recognition of post traumatic stress disorder by the Police Service. I do know that just recently I read statistics that more O.P.P. officers die by suicide than die by on the job violence including auto accidents. That is a truly scary and eye opening statistic.
