An RCMP officer offers a quick demonstration in safe handcuff handling while possibly under the influence as part of their new Off-the-Cuff Curbside Community Outreach Program at UBC.
Back at headquarters, senior brass who had apparently not been previously apprised of the popular new 'off-the-cuff' program were quoted as being "very concerned about the case and are taking it seriously."
The demo was humourlessly observed by a disapproving fourth-year UBC business student who apparently failed to see the irony in his statement :
"I said, just loud enough so they can hear me, 'This is the most unprofessional thing I have even seen,'" Kovac claimed.
The two RCMP officers continued to take photos for 10 minutes and only stopped long enough to ask Kovac to pour out his drink, he said.
"So I poured it out and then he went right back to posing with the girls," Kovac said."
