First I must say, DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE, NEVER.
I was debating to post this or not, as the information should be pretty darn sensitive. I guess I just need to post the whole story here:
A RCMP officer(Monty Robinson) is being charged of obstructing justice- he left the scene of a data motorcycle accident and drank 2 shots of vodka to so-called “calm his nerves”.
Robinson was one of four officers that taser-ed Robert Dziekanski, (whom was later announced dead) at Vancouver International Airport,
Robinson’s lawyer, David Crossin, argued that the officer that arrested Robinson at the accident scene’s testimonies shouldn’t be taken into consideration because Robinson wasn’t notified of his right to legal counsel, before telling her about vodka.
Anyhow, here is the main point of this post:
In the court case, the Crown prosecutor stated that, Robinson is using his police training to get away with convictions- especially when he claimed to have consumed alcohol after the accident.
Prosecutor’s witnesses indicate that Robinson went through RCMP training courses in 2005, and he was taught that those who consumed alcohol and drove, can had their impaired charge dismissed, if they had drank more between the time of the accident and the time they got caught.
On top of that, he was also taught that, as long as they left their driver licenses behind at the accident scene, they may be dismissed from a charge of fleeing from the scene of a crash too.
Don’t ever ever ever Drink and Drive-as it is deadly dangerous and can ruin families within seconds.
So, according to RCMP data training courses:
If you are pulled over by the police after drinking and driving. Stop the car and drink more liquor right away. An impaired driving charge could possibly dismissed.
If you see a roadblock ahead of you and you drank before, pull over, leave the car, and call car towing companies. Getting your car towed is way better than being criminally charged. They will find you afterwards, but thats afterwards.
If you had an unfortunate accident after drinking, you can also leave your driver licenses at the scene, that can possibly dismiss you from a charge of fleeing from an accident.
Anyhow, these information are only for knowledge use, and to acknowledge the loopholes in our justice system only.
PLEASE DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE.
THEY WILL COME AFTER YOU.
