Description

“The police had surrounded the house. They had been there for quite a while. They didn’t want to try to rush the house because they thought he might kill one of the innocent people. But after waiting for a long time, I asked the police: ‘Let me see if I can talk to the guy.’”

For decades, TV news reporter Russ Ewing stood beside more than 100 people — at their request — as they surrendered to the police.

Thanks to CBC Licensing.

and this is why the police should be held to a higher standard of behavior. sadly, most people and especially the courts behave and believe as if the police are 1) honest 2) trustworthy. an individual police officer is not, until proven so. the entire system is not to be trusted until the system itself roots out and prosecutes the bad apples......which it hasn't done.
