Robert Dziekanski’s mother has filed a lawsuit alleging excessive force and “cruel and unusual” treatment by the four RCMP officers who stunned her son with a Taser.
Full story: Dziekanski's mom files lawsuit over Taser death
Do police rely too heavily on Tasers?
The feds did not tell the RCMP not to testify.
As usual lies made up by twitbrain, like everything else he prints.

He defines it as bruceofiction.
Course you're probably another Twatty's sock puppets, he is the personification of ignorance.

You are such a SLAVE, if anyone on this forum defines ignorant it is definately YOU!
You are by far the most repulsive person on this site and probably the world, but you are really hilarious and have provided me with untold laughs!
Get a life you stinking SLAVE!

Yesterday he admited he was wrong.That didnt happen.
Well the question needs to be asked( and I am sure it will be) if Robert did not come at him screaming and waving a stapler at him, then WHY was he tazered.
When asked if the film showing that it didnt happen the way he said it did, didnt exist he said I dont know.
I DONT KNOW?
The reason he lied in the first place was because he didnt think his lie would be exposed on a camera.
Of course he would have stuck to that story if the camera did not exist.
He must of felt like a jerk when the people in the audience laughed when he said I DONT KNOW

The federal CONS advised the RCMP to not co operate with the enquiry.And that these 4 cops should not testify.
Disgusted Shocked but not surprised EH?

"Ntd AKA SAF, they CONfiscated the camera and promised to return it right away. When in fact they realized what was on the camera, they decided they were not going to return it at all. It was only when legal action was threatened they decided to give it back."
Uh, Twitless, the officers can't promise to return it right away, it is not their decision to make. If it was such a grand conspiracy and cover-up all the RCMP had to do was wipe the data and return the camera. As to returning the camera, it was EVIDENCE, do you seriously think they can turn over EVIDENCE based on a verbal (written or oral) request from a private citizen? It usually takes a motion, a legal request, to obtain access to evidence.
The RCMP have a tough job and on the whole they do it exceedingly well.
By the way, Twitless, I have a stapler on my desk labeled Swingline, model 94-41. It is solid steel and most definitely, weighing over 24 ounces, could be used as a weapon. If an RCMP officer entered the room and I was stupid enough to pick it up I would expect the officer to be proactive and disarm me. I don't think he/she would wait to see what I was going to do with it.
That said, I think these officers OBVIOUSLY over-reacted, used excessive force, and the consequent death is a horrible tragedy. Hopefully, the inquiry will generate some positive changes so this type of fiasco is not repeated.

"Just by the fact that police are much more cautious in the manner they deploy tasers, due to this accident"
You are kidding, right?
Last year the RCMP walk into a hospital room and tazer an 80 year old man, hooked to an oxygen tank while in his hospital bed.
That's what you call being more cautious Monty?
