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?
Dot did you see all ten hours of video. I saw five seconds on the news.

Well Wayne, they did not follow procedure.
In fact they broke almost every procedure in this case.
Which again brings me to this.
Why did the cops, before they knew about the video, lie on at least 4 occasions about what tool place?

When I woke up it was a beautiful day
Our youth should abound and be able to play
I've heard too many stories and children's cries
Amid bureaucratic bungling and government lies
Too many of our youths have had to run and hide
Those runaway children have lost their pride
Politicians claim to care amidst their egos
It's not their problem as each day comes and goes
To dealers and pimps our youths are endless cash
Like stock manipulation, who cares if they crash
Politicians claim that justice will prevail
Relying on governments "we've" let "ourselves" fail
A child's shriek should be like the chirp of a bird
Too many of our government's children will never be heard
Our "maimed" and "dead" children had the same resource
An Inquiry proved "unaccountability" and "no remorse"
Judges, lawyers, and counselors are a smoke-screen
There are too many wrongfully placed children in what should not have been
"Proven fraud" and "child abuse" should reinforce the needed clout
A parent's despair has made many a suicide the only way out
Criminal immigrants in Canada who get out of line
Know under the Charter of Rights, they will never be deported or do any time
A murdered five month old baby that caused a public commotionIs void of closure or incarceration in a Supreme Court motion
Our national police force are asked to serve and protect
They do so with Ottawa's lack of respect
"Above the Law" showed a Mountie's hands tied behind their back
They are being stretched to the limit as would a mediaeval rack
Our Senate that is based on its pricey pursuasion
Is virtually null and void of any physical participation
These supposed law-makers is, apparently, why a Senate was required
Their appointers' business associates are sure to be hired
Our Attorney-General said school-yard bullying will not be tolerated
That's a crock as victimized students are asked to leave and totally berated
Our MLA has been appointed Deputy House Speaker
Not overly hearing from his before, this new appointment made him weaker
Whimsical cloud shapes should be a child's dream
Too many children will never be heard in their scream
Some children get to frolic in an annual camping event
Children labelled as problems may never get to properly vent
Deprivation, annihilation, and environmental curses
Simply make fat corrupt people's purses
Through greed and a back-stabbing grandstand
We have sown the lives of too many children into our land
We need time to move mountains we cannot see
We need time to have freedom and be happy
We need time to really be able to feel
We need time to eventually heal
We need time to let our children grow
Of what I speak is called "SEREENA'S HOPE"

There are three kinds of people in this world.
Wolves...who prey on sheep and the sheepdogs....who protect the sheep from the wolves.
Guess what you are....
Hypothetically, WADE...if you were the ONLY man on a bus with 40 children 10 years and under, and the bus driver is a 5'2" 110 pound woman and you were confronted by a hostile male, 6' tall and 200 lbs, and the RCMP is at least 10 minutes away...what would you do??
No smart answers, like " Because I am not a trained Law Enforcement Officer."
Oh by the way.,...sheep or sheep dog WADE....I know what you are already.
