Dziekanski Was Dead By The Time Medical Help Arrived: RCMP Would Still Not Remove Cuffs!

The more the RCMP try to talk their way out of the death of Mr. Dziekanski in the Vancouver Airport, the deeper they seem to be digging themselves in. While arguing that the victim was alright, breathing and alive, the RCMP are being directly contradicted by emergency medical personnel who attended to the scene:

"The Richmond Fire Department said that when fire crews checked his (Dziekanski's) vitals, he had no pulse and was not breathing.

"Our crews, while they were doing their assessment, had asked for the handcuffs to be taken off," said Lake. "The RCMP had indicated that he had been violent before and they didn't want to take the handcuffs off and so our crews continued with their assessment." He definitely had no pulse and no breathing," Lake said. "Clinically yes, I guess he was dead."

B.C. Ambulance Service arrived next and also asked for Dziekanski's handcuffs to be removed, at which point police obliged."


This is, on the surface, a case of He Said, She Said. But She is medical personnel trained to asses a victim's condition in various circumstances, and without any apparent conflict of interest or possible reason to want to misrepresent events. Credibility is high.

He is police trained to see the victim as a threat, with a history of misrepresenting the event, and a strong reason to want to misrepresent events. Credibility is questionable. And they have nobody to blame for that but themselves.

I have no reason to believe anything the cops have to say on this subject.

The RCMP have apparently not learned the First Law of Holes.

So they are telling us that,4 healthy, padded and trained RCMP Officers could not tackle and hold down 1 exhausted traveler. RCMP needs to hire a couple of bouncers from downtown to tag along in case they come across a upset unarmed person.
