RCMP asking sympathy for a dead officer takes me back to shooting of four young Mounties in Alberta decade or so ago.
Though those officers were sent to a duck shoot by a known danger, the RCMP bosses escaped blame by arresting men who had given the killer a ride.
As the killers’ hairdresser told me, everyone on community was afraid of this guy so, of course, said yes. Now it seems to me RCMP are using sad death of one Mountie to deflect attention from lack of warning that might have saved lives.
If they used Twitter, many of us don’t use that….why not Amber Alert? We have pride and trust in our force but they must face tough questions.
