I have been following the Robert Dziekanski saga for a while now.
Right from the start, RCMP has been on the back foot and tried to play defense until a few days ago. It’s quite obvious what the lawyers of the RCMP officers are doing, painting the victim as a person of dubious character.
My question is not if this guy was of dubious character? Or he was drunk? Or what if he was mentally unstable? My question is why the fuck did 4 police officers have to taser a guy armed with a stapler?
If the best defense that the officers have to offer is to attack the victim’s “character”, then they have already lost.
