Reading how the case against Toronto police officers is cleared to resume at the pre-trial motions stage some seven years after charges were laid one can only wonder what it takes to motivate the justice system to hold accountable the people responsible for enforcing the criminal law. There seems to be an enormous inertia holding back prosecutions each time police officers are charged with crimes. It is as if the system refuses to admit its flaws and the possibility of wrongdoing on the part of its officers and would rather sweep transgressions under the rug of protracted proceedings and inquiries rather than gaining the confidence of the public by showing that the criminal law is enforced against everyone equally, without exception.
