A highly unlikely (I submit dismissible offence for the police officer it it were true) event.

A 38-year-old Mississauga man is facing a slew of charges after a gun was found at the feet of a handcuffed suspect in the back seat of a police vehicle. Police said that on Sunday officers were called to The Esplanade, in downtown Toronto, for reports of an impaired driver. They located a man sitting in the driver’s seat of a vehicle. He was taken into police custody and officers patted him down before handcuffing him and putting him in the back of the police car. According to police, while they…Ali Shobeg, 38, of Mississauga faces nine charges, including eight firearm-related charges.

Story is odd, unless you wait a few days and read something like this.

Toronto police are hoping to start using body scanners, a potential replacement for strip searches, by early 2020 — but critics say the technology still amounts to an invasion of privacy.

The force has launched a request for proposals for a three-year contract to provide at least one full-body scanner, and potentially up to 10 of the devices, according to public tender documents.

When asked for comment by CBC Toronto, Toronto police spokesperson Connie Osborne said the force can’t share details on the project or its budget because the procurement process is in motion, only noting the service will be “moving forward.”

Nevermind. I forgot some public institutions are actually private, including the police.
