An 11 year old boy apparently tasered by Prince George RCMP because he was holding a knife after stabbing a 37 year old man?. I do not care what the circumstances were there is absolutely no excuse or reason for this to have happened. When is enough enough? If Law enforcement officers, and RCMP don’t have the skills and abilities to deal with an 11 year old then they have no business being in this position.
The RCMP have to select and train their officers better and give them the necessary skills to deal with everyday shit like this without resorting to tasering and shooting people except in very extreme circumstances, they do this far too often and far too easily. These actions are reprehensible and inexcusable, and the officers responsible need to be held accountable.
The RCMP have lowered the bar so far in order to allow more ‘diversity’ etc. etc. within their ranks, and all the other 'politcally correct bullshit, that many of their members no longer have the attributes necessary to be effective, this job is clearly not for everyone, you are police officers for fuck sake, start acting like it. If you can’t do the job, chose another career.
The people need to demand a public inquiry and review of the RCMP, and they need to make some serious changes as they are very quickly becoming a fucking joke and have lost the respect and confidence of the public as a direct result of their actions.
