The media disclosed a shocking video showing details
of a suspected prisoner’s pistol case
in a police car on Sunday.
The video shows the man
with the handcuffs reaching into his waist,
pulling out a pistol and placing it between his legs.
Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders
issued a statement on Tuesday morning
explaining the media’s disclosure of a video
of a suspected pistol being arrested in a police car.
Saunders’s statement pointed out that
the police officer had received a report in the past Sunday that
some people in the Esplanade area in the city center were suspected of drunk driving.
After the police officers arrived,
they found a suspect sitting in a driver’s seat in a car.
The police officer searched the suspect
and handcuffed the suspect
to arrest him on charges of alcohol.
The police officers did not find that the arrested person still possessed guns.
The statement said that during the delivery of the suspect,
the police officers heard the sound of the goods in the back seat of the police car.
The police officers stopped and opened the rear door to check that
there was a pistol on the floor in front of the suspect’s foot.
The police officers put the guns in a safe place
and then took the suspects to the police team for 41 investigations.
In the case, the 38-year-old Mississauga man Ali Showbeg
faced nine criminal charges,
eight of which were related to firearms.
Saunders said that the police had informed the police officers
about the handling of the guns and the authorities
and whether the incidents were related to training or discipline.
In addition, the video released by the media
is obviously a surveillance video in the police car.
Sanders also made relevant confirmation
and ordered a “full investigation” of the leaked video incident.
Sanders said the leak was a clear violation of the police code.
多伦多警察协会主席Mike McCormack 说
Mike McCormack, president of the Toronto Police Association, said that
the police officers may not have noticed
the gangster’s possession of the gun during the process.
He believes that the incident is showing that
the patrol officers should be more vigilant.
Mayor’s video in the City Hall on Tuesday said that
the incident was disturbing.
He urged the police to investigate the incident.
