Key Findings [LINK]:
* While they were in the lawful execution of their duties as police officers, the four officers failed to adopt a measured, coordinated and appropriate response to Mr. Dziekanski's reported behaviour.
* The senior on-scene RCMP member failed to take charge of the RCMP's response.
* No meaningful attempt was made to de-escalate the situation.
* No warning - visual or otherwise - was given to Mr. Dziekanski prior to him being tasered by the Conducted Energy Weapon (CEW).
* Use of the CEW against Mr. Dziekanski was premature and inappropriate.
* The CEW was used multiple times on Mr. Dziekanski without any significant effort made to determine the need for further use.
* The RCMP members present should have more actively provided first aid and monitored Mr. Dziekanki's condition.
* The four RCMP members inappropriately met alone after the death of Mr. Dziekanski - prior to giving their statements.
* The versions of events given to investigators by the four RCMP officers involved in the Vancouver International Airport in-custody death of Robert Dziekanski are not deemed credible by the CPC.
* The senior on-scene RCMP member should not have been present at the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) briefing held at the Richmond Detachment on October 14, 2007.
* No bias or partiality toward the involved RCMP members was present in the IHIT investigation of the death of Mr. Dziekanski, but the Pritchard video should have been shown to the members before taking statements from them.
* The RCMP should have released certain information to the media which would have served to clarify information pertaining to the death of Mr. Dziekanski and corrected erroneous information previously provided without compromising the IHIT investigation.
