"World Gone Wrong"
Everything Is Broken down on Desolation Row, leaving me Tangled Up In Blue and ready to blow.
Imagine a land where the courts uphold your right to punch an abusive cop in the face in self defense.
As more and more is learned about the death of Robert Dziekanski at the hands of those four RCMP officers at Vancouver International Airport, more and more people are speaking out in disgust, including some former RCMP officers, who have some rather damning things to say.
A rant about the scourge of police brutality and the pathetic reality of the knee-jerk defenders of all such brutality, no matter how horrific.
Over a year after the incident, the RCMP finally finish up their investigation of themselves... and, surprise, surprise, they find they did absolutely nothing wrong in the death of newly-arrived immigrant Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver airport in October 2007.
Robert Dziekanski, an innocent man just arriving to start a new life in Canada, is senselessly killed by those he only wanted and expected help from: the police.
A story of greed at its very worst.
The most arrogant and unlikable (former) Canadian finally gets put in his place.
A nation's true character revealed by its reaction to one revealed breast.
The Canadian "justice system:" One of the world's most oxymoronically-named institutions.
