I must say that I wasn't surprised. I shook my head, in sadness and dismay, yet I had expected this.
Mounties will not be charged in B.C. taser death
It seems they just didn't have enough evidence. I do wonder, what would have constituted evidence?? Perhaps a video? No, we had that (even though it took a bit for the RCMP to release it!). Witnesses perhaps? No, we had those too - all quite shocked.
If the RCMP is at all concerned about it's dismal public image, then this decision by the courts has simply added fuel to the fire. I guess they don't really care what the public thinks of them, why should they? Given the movement towards a police state, both here and in the US (The UK is already there - fullforce!) is it any wonder that the police involved in this clear case of manslaughter get off Scott-free?
I'm too ticked off currently to write much more. It's just another stepping stone towards the loss of democracy and human rights in this rather pathetic land called Canada. This is not the land I was fooled into believing in as a child.
