Ontario Cop Shot Himself and Then Made Up Story About Attempted Carjacking

Fortunately for any groups of men who fit the description Darkov allegedly gave the cops, police saw their way through the conflicting stories. The OPP says 21 officers investigated after the shooting, “canvassing [Darkov’s] apartment building for witnesses, seizing video surveillance and executing a search warrant.”

A mischief and a firearm charge against Darkov were withdrawn last month after a Crown prosecutor said the officer had fulfilled the requirements of a diversion agreement, meaning he complied with a set of court-mandated conditions.

Harry Black, a lawyer for Darkov, did not respond to requests for comment.

Ontario’s police disciplinary tribunals adjudicate infractions like driving drunk, snooping in databases, and using excessive force. Penalties for officers found guilty of misconduct include rank reductions, docked pay, and dismissal.

The administrative charges were on hold pending resolution of Darkov’s criminal case, according to an officer with the OPP’s Professional Standards Bureau. The
service has not set a date to resume the proceedings.

For now, Darkov is suspended with pay.

A Linkedin profile under the name “Darko Darkov” claims he has been an Ontario Provincial Police officer for seven years.

Filming Cops was started in 2010 as a conglomerative blogging service documenting police abuse. The aim isn’t to demonize the natural concept of security provision as such, but to highlight specific cases of State-monopolized police brutality that are otherwise ignored by traditional media outlets.
