Final Update (?) on Ian Bush

UPDATE MAY 24 2007: My latest post on Ian Bush can be found here. Please direct any comments there.


I just heard on the news that the officer involved in shooting Ian Bush in the head while he was in custody at the RCMP detachment in Houston will not be charged with any crime. The results of the investigation were reported on CFTK (Channel 7 in Smithers), the CBC affiliate located in Terrace, B.C.

There was enough evidence supporting the officer's claim that he acted in self-defence.

I am certain that there will be a great outcry from residents of Houston, as well as the family and friends of Ian Bush. For more information on the history of this story, you can check this link to the Province newspaper. You will need to be a subscriber to the Province in order to read some of the stories, but some of them are free.

As well, you can read my thoughts here and the original post from last November here.

I can hardly wait for the new edition of the Interior News to come out tomorrow!
