Vancouver, BC - ...RCMP Chief Supt. Dick Bent told the Braidwood inquiry Tuesday morning that he stands by the accuracy of his e-mail that said four Mounties had decided to use a Taser on a Polish immigrant before they even met him. ... And the third e-mail, this time from Supt. Bent to his superior officer on Nov. 22, 2007, outlines seven policies that the four RCMP officers at the airport were supposed to follow but ignored. They include talking to the distraught person to find out what language he speaks, talking to other passengers and crew, checking identification and visa, trying to find a translator, checking with partner agencies, or finding a 24-hour police interpreter. ...

Wow. Nice job.
Supt. Bent single-handedly restores much of my faith in the old-school RCMP.
Bless his heart.
(Update: I'm not too sure about the missing emails though... Wouldn't a good sampling of them be available by searching others' email accounts for the missing sent items? It's not as if an email is only stored in one location. I find it very difficult to believe that the experts couldn't track down a good sampling of his emails from the missing period. Very strange...)
