Indeed it is, indeed it is.
We had several LEO's step up into the limelight here in Canada to help the charge to throw our long gun registry on a manure pile - which is where it went.
One of them was from Edmonton and the first thing he did was formally take himself off the promotion list. He knew that when he opened his mouth and spoke against his politico-cop bosses, his prospects for advancement were over. He ran a survey among front-line officers in a LEO magazine. The result was about 90% opposed to the Long Gun Registry, IIRC, and then he was interviewed over and over about that and about his opinion and experience.....appeared before the Committees who were taking testimony in Ottawa, etc. He wasn't the only one, either.
His name is Randy Kuntz. I doubt he visits here, but I wanted to give him credit (again) anyway.
Same goes for your officers. They hang their arse out the window when they do things like this and they deserve public recognition for their integrity and our collective thanks.
Sorry for yammering on but things like this impress me a lot.
