CALGARY -- The city's top cop says its hard to judge if the two officers videotaped appearing to be racing to a doughnut shop did anything wrong but the matter is now under investigation.

Chief Rick Hanson said he had one look at the video that surfaced on YouTube, showing two marked city cop cars and an unmarked vehicle at a red light.

When the traffic light turned green, the driver of one of the police cars accelerated to pull into a Tim Hortons.

"I've noticed that the speeds for two of the police vehicles, I don't think made it to 50 km/h," said Hanson.

He said investigators are looking closely at one of the police cars and its driver...
I wonder if the guy was an addict who couldnt wait for his double double and apple fritter.

Drag race not found...
This is true. But if that was a civilian car it would have been pulled over and given a stern talked to.

In Ontario that's street racing, so the car would be immediately impounded and the driver's license suspended for 7 days.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

In Calgary that's "stunting" and a ticket. Wasn't much of a drag race but the cops will bust you for less so they should probably practice what they preach...

One set of rules for them, another for you. Quiet peasant! :razz:

Huge double standard, same for when a serious offense is committed.

Well... Keep in mind that many times cops don't really get lunch breaks.
As silly as it sounds... Maybe they were racing away to get some quick donuts and coffee before going back in action. >_<

Wtf? Where's the drag race? He used enough power to get ahead but doubt he broke the speed limit, and then was sensible enough to signal and use the other entrance instead of slam the brakes for the first driveway.

I've done the same thing to a cop, merged safely, and signaled into a plaza. He didn't feel the need to bother me about it.
