Letter: Few rotten apples should get the boot

I’ve always been treated with respect by the RCMP, yet (a few incidents) brings shame to the police force which has been around since the frontier days, (and seen as) heroes.

To the editor:

I’ve always been treated with respect by the RCMP, yet what took place with Buddy Tavares in Kelowna, the man at Vancouver Airport, and 22-year-old Ian Bush who was shot in the head at the Houston detachment, brings shame to the police force which has been around since the frontier days, (and seen as) heroes.

We are living in sad days to witness this sort of conduct by a few members of this police force who were so respected. We have good men and women in the RCMP, please kick the bad apples out.

Don Albert,

Kelowna
