In 2002 Rob Furlong broke the record for the longest confirmed kill. He shot a Taliban fighter at a range of range of 1.5 miles using a MacMillan Tac-50 rifle with a Leupold Mark 4-16x40mm LR/T M1 scope. After he left Canadian Army he joined the Edmonton Police Service. He has just been fired from police after a review board upheld the decision to dismiss him due to misconduct during a training course in 2011 where he got drunk and urinated on a colleague.
Rob Furlong, a decorated Afghan war hero, had been out drinking with colleagues at a course near Edmonton in September 2011. The group returned to their accommodations to sleep, but Furlong kept drinking and later woke up his colleagues.
According to evidence from several officers, Furlong urinated on one of his colleagues, pushed him, yelled insults then forced him to stay in his room.
Furlong was charged with discreditable conduct and dismissed at an Edmonton Police Service hearing. The presiding officer, Supt. Mark Logar, called Furlong’s behaviour “dehumanizing and degrading to another human being.”
