    The police really should look at their own as well, as they are offenders of DUI ,not a very good display to the public or confidence builder now is it ! I witnessed one of their own last night leaving a well known waterfront establishment who could hardly walk without a swagger got into their car and drive ,heading out East ! i know for this person is a regular occurence ,there are innocent people out there on these roads who always seem to be the victims of the clowns who continue to Drink and Drive ,when are the RCIPS going to take things seriously and stop burying their heads in the sand ,the car is a lethal weapon as well you know !!! in the wrong hands .

    I would have reported the person ,but really what would have been the point ,would they have followed it up ….i don’t think so !!
