There is so much wrong with this story.
Hopefully, lessons will be learned and it won't happen again. Compassion is supposed to be one of the core values of the RCMP. The tactics used seem to be more from a police state with an attitude that every situation involves bad guys and perps. What would they think if a loved one in their family were similarly treated in a foreign contry?
More and more police seem to have a take em down swat mentality and there are occasions I can't blame them given the situations they find themselves in. Tasers are still a new toy for the protection services and as time passes it is becoming obvious they are not as non lethal as originally thought and have so much potential for miss use or abuse. It was shocking to observe how little assessment was done by the members given it was obvious there was no iminent threat to life or limb.
I can only hope that even one of those trained officers began to administer CPR or did all involved continue to mill about waiting for paramedics to arrive? That to me would be most telling about the character of the attending officers. The rest is better training.
