Back in the news... (Related previous post [LINK])
Background: A very familiar pattern. Taser overuse, misuse, or abuse; or perhaps it's not a problem (you decide). Nothing much happens until a video surfaces.
See CTV News on YouTube: [LINK]
Reportedly, someone wielding a taser said, "this will teach you" (this statement is unproven in court and won't be since the one making the claim, Dempsey, was later killed in an unrelated traffic accident).
And in other news...
Similkameen Spotlight: ...Tracy Carrell said she was inexplicably attacked by Macahonic... Pictures admitted to the Kamloops Court case clearly showed burn marks on the back of Carrell’s head similar to what would result from a taser discharge. Litigation is pending. ...the best way to exploit the talents of Sgt. Macahonic so as to permit him to serve with distinction and the respect he deserves. [LINK]
I think I have to clean the sarcasm off my shoes after reading that last line. Good one.
Keremeos Review: ...Internal RCMP investigations were performed in each of three taser use incidents, including one involving a handcuffed, disabled man, and the internal investigations exonerated Sergeant Macahonic in all instances. [LINK]
Well that's nice. Obviously he's a model officer. A shining example of the RCMP Finest. And everyone knows that there is no stricter standards than those used during the cases where the RCMP investigate their brothers-in-arms.
So, is Macahonic still employed by, and on active-duty with, the RCMP?
Hey, I'm just asking...
