A Plea to Premier Davis: call a Public Inquiry into the Dunphy shooting - NOW
On Friday past, the RNC officer (so far unnamed) who shot Donny Dunphy sent out a letter that sped through the provincial consciousness like a bitter March wind.
As a result, in the midst of tragedy, we are confronted with the unwelcome need to push on down a road of inquiry that seems to open into a place we have not been before.
It is a place far from those days, not very long ago, when it was our happy boast that our very own RNC was the only unarmed police force in North America.
We evidently have not paid enough attention to policing matters and to what the RNC has been up to with this PSU business.
For instance, how did this letter, this extraordinary intervention by Officer “X” , an officer subject to an ongoing police investigation, get written in the first place?
