In regards to Jamie Haller (re: Tribune, April 23, RCMP officer acquitted on assault charge).
I expected the judge to say something along the lines of: I am appalled by your brazen behaviour and unprofessional conduct.
Instead the judge supported this intoxicated, frightened and handcuffed child (in the eyes of the law you are a child until your 18th birthday) being brutally punched in the face.
I would call it child abuse.
I believe the motto for the RCMP is serve and protect. Say what?
This brings to mind a fictional scenario of two parents beaming with pride at the fact that their child admitted to torturing and killing the family pet.
“Regardless of what our child did he told the truth and that trumps everything else.”
The truth shall set you free? I believe officer Andy Yung owes this child and her family an apology.
