That's the simple one title of Judge Thomas Braidwood's report into the death of Robert Dziekanski by electro-shocking from four Mounties.   There's no question this would have happened with any party in charge of the executive, but I believe we can expect more of this the longer we have leaders of any stripe with a shoot first, ask questions later mentality -- rather than with respect for those who come to Canada, especially immigrants who just want to start a new chapter in their life.

BC's Premier has referred this matter to a special prosecutor.  I hope it's not a Crown from outside the province but rather a respected defence attorney who can look at the findings as well as the facts with an open mind so as to better able to determine whether the four cops involved should face charges.
