GRANDE PRAIRIE Alberta’s police watchdog says a Mountie shot a man on Tuesday in Grande Prairie during an exchange of gunfire with two suspects after a pickup rammed an RCMP cruiser. No police officers were hurt. Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) investigators say the 21-year-old suspect who was shot was taken to hospital with serious injuries. The other suspect, who is 29, was arrested.
Two sawed-off long-barrelled firearms were recovered.
Team investigators say they will focus on the circumstances of the officer-involved shooting and whether police conduct was lawful.
Too bad he missed.
Sawed off guns are not just restricted weapons, they are prohibited weapons. Their mere possession should bring a mandatory death sentence. They have no lawful purpose and are only useful to cause death and destruction during the commission of other crimes.
This is the problem with today. They rammed a police cruiser and had sawed off shotguns. End of story. How could the actions by the RCMP not be justified. How many police man hours do we lose while incidents like these are investigated.
Just Another Monday -
K E: Yeah, and then the investigating team says that they will check the legality of the RCMP's response... Only in Canada...
