Four Mounties involved in a fatal confrontation with Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski will face charges of perjury in relation to the evidence each officer gave at the Braidwood inquiry into the 2007 incident, the provincial criminal-justice branch said Friday.

No citizen is safe (not even YOU dear reader) if the police can get away with lies and deception on the witness stand.
