Cop promoted after driving drunk
A police officer in West Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada) is being promoted, not fired, despite drinking three times the legal limit at her place of work. At an after-work party, she got drunk, drove her car and rear-ended another vehicle. She was convicted of impaired driving and received a 14-month driving suspension. Her boss insists she’s paying the consequences for her actions. Read an op-ed piece in the Langley Times about this and similar incidents in Canada.
