On Police Violence, Quotable

Ontario Court Justice Lucia Favret, on sentencing Detective Christopher Higgins to 90 days in jail for breaking the arm of a drug suspect in an April 1, 2004 Toronto police interrogation:
“The offence is reprehensible. He failed the institution he is so proud of and he failed the public... Citizens expect police to respect the law, not to be above the law.”
- Garry J. Wise, Toronto
