You are absolutely correct and although to a lesser degree, it also applies to Dziekanski
In your travels, have you noticed that the customs areas aren't exactly park-like settings. Have you not noticed that, in many cases, there are armed guards present?.. Ever wonder why?
....One thing that stands out ssooooooooooooooooo bad is the drunken cop who killed a motorcyclist lied about what happened WITH REGARDS TO HOW MUCH HE HAD DRANK, while having on his record 2 people dead and still looking for vindication.
He also had the nerve to ask for his drivers’ license back and was denied. There is something seriously wrong here, that is a dysfunctional society and in this case a cop has set the stage.
Sock, it's just as unfair to keep bringing the motorcycle vs drunk cop into it as it is for RCMP lawyers to bring up Dziekanski's juvenile record.
I saw this story on The National last night, and all I could think is that our legal system is just heaping shovel loads of further embarrassment upon Canada's shame with the way the RCMP is handling an abuse perpetrated by one it's own... Keep in mind that it's not just a single lawyer that's behaving so despicably... that's an entire team of lawyers that is being paid and acting at the behest of the RCMP. Still, it's a scummy way to practice law, and with the eyes of the world upon us for this one, it's a smear on our reputation at an international level.
For Christ's sake. Man up and take some responsibility, and take note of where things are broken so they can get fixed.
I'll ditto Zan, here. It's bad enough the cops made "mistakes" when confronting Dziekansky, flipflop on their testimonies, etc. and now the freakin lawyers make the issue even worse by attacking the guy's charcter and alleged past. The whole thing has evolved from a stink to a septic stench.
What would a new investigation possibly tell us? Are the facts in dispute?
I guess she can always go back to Poland...
