Constable Dorothy Nesbeth was caught bringing one hundred and two cans of beer, ten litres of wine and two bottles of rum over the border without declaring it and was fired December 19. The hearing process dragged on for more than four years with her on paid suspension. The day she was fired, she contacted a new lawyer to launch an appeal. Provincial rules dictate that Nesbeth must go back on paid suspension until the appeal process is finished.
Should she be fired? Or does she deserve a second chance? Do police officers get away with more than civilians?
