Could my spouse, one of my good citizen sons or daughter, one of six grandchildren or I, or you, be shot dead by Vancouver Police Constable Lee Chipperfield, or any one of many VPD perverters of justice, because all believe, for good reason, bad reason or no reason, that we've threatened them by crawling unarmed on the ground, near death, already shot at 8 times at close range and mortally wounded by those bullets?
Well, if we are, our families will still be wondering, five years later, if a new (?) inquiry will examine the right or wrong of the homicide. Maybe though, people should not worry since the chief of any execution squad will do the right thing and he'll support any number of new and old inquiries conducted by his professional associates.
And that new inquiry, or re-inquiry, might take five years more but will result in the same excuses and absolutions.
Not in my world. Jailing the perpetrator and the enablers would be reasonable. In my world.
However, the world does not operate this way.
