” The Mounties have stripped any new answers from a heavily censored report on the high-profile stun gun incident, obtained by The Canadian Press and CBC under the Access to Information Act. … Absent from the report is the name and rank of the officer who fired the Taser, the name of his supervisor, details about the duration of the firing, and the number of times the weapon was used in stun mode … A written summary of the incident has been blanked out along with assessments as to whether use of the Taser helped the RCMP … New information is scant. “
My 2-Bits: Cudos to Jim Bronskill, Sue Bailey, CBC and the Canadian Press for continuing to investigate this issue!
