Kelown is a sh!t hole filled with crackheads and debutantes. Once upon a time it was a great place to raise a family. Now if you want to thin the numbers in your family out, you move to Kelowna.
How much do you want to bet? I have a pension cheque due in a few days. (Don't let your mouth get in the way of your money)
I am not familiar with this case, but IMO if you are being stupid and using a firearm in a dangerous manner around a cop...then yeah, you deserve a kick in the face. If you did it in my proximity you would have gotten two slugs in the chest and one in the pan for your efforts.
At the rate you people are going, you will not be worth defending at all. Our cops get no benefit of the doubt, the perp gets every benefit of the doubt, and an essentially harmless "boot to the face" of an armed and dangerous perp becomes an excuse for stupid people to hang a man who puts it on the line every day trying to defend them.
My guess, JLM, is that ultimately, we will have the police force folks like you deserve.
