Another arrogant response from the RCMP. Stonewalling the justice system on the investigation of Robert Dziekansky’s videotaped death by cop is making our country look bad. For those who may not remember, the killing at Vancouver airport was an international incident.
These cops have come a long way from the upright ways of Dudley Do-Right and have started to resemble Vladimir Putin’s old pals.
From the Vancouver Sun story:
“This is just such an unbelievable set of circumstances,” Kosteckyj said. “We’re talking about 20 or 30 seconds. Why would it take so long for the RCMP to complete their report? It leaves the impression they’re delaying in the hope the public will forget.”
Maybe they’ve never heard of the adage that justice delayed is justice denied.
UPDATE: It just keeps getting better. One of the police officers accused of being involved with Robert Dziekansky’s death (“accused” being a fairly generous term for a guy caught on videotape) has now been charged with impaired driving in a man’s death (Winnipeg Sun).
These are the kinds of people the top cops appear to be covering up for? Yikes.
