Police at Orchard Park

Do you want a personally addressed write-up of the series of events that transpired?
Do you honestly think you're somehow "owed" that?

Crikey, it hasn't quite been a week, this isn't CSI where it's all buttoned up in 60 minutes.

Some info is purposely kept from the public to avoid impact on potential future court cases. And some info is just horribly reported by the "National Enquirer of the Okanagan".

...and you wonder why people are asking questions?

Actually I was wondering if anyone actually knew of more details instead of laying down speculations as if they were facts.
Then I was also commenting on the large gap between what's reported in "media" and what I've heard from other closer accounts.
It's comical at best, but overall par for the course.

As for the reference to Slocan Valley, can't say I know what that's in reference to, but perhaps filing under "Access to Info" Act would would garner some answers.

I think it's reasonable to demand timely answers to questions concerning gunplay in very public areas, especially when it appears that the public was put at risk and excessive force was used.

If a suspect opens fire on the police we know it that day. The police are very quick to justify their actions and there is no reason to hold information back for a court case lol. The charges are posted.

All we have is crickets, no firearms charges and a bunch of bullet holes in the drivers side of a car.

As for the reference to Slocan Valley, can't say I know what that's in reference to, but perhaps filing under "Access to Info" Act would would garner some answers.

It appears certain individuals on this forum need to get there Press Pass, so they can ask the police directly the questions they want answers to.
Oh just a heads up... you would be able to ask, no guarantee to get those answers you are looking for.

That's not true. Pathologists 3 and 4 confirmed the travel of bullet was front to back. And if you had read the link YOU posted you would have known that.

Criteria for a high speed chase was met.

Many times they are not.
Westside Road might be rural but it isn't a quiet road. And the point I was making the police DO participate in high speed chases - not that they don't as you stated.

Then I suggest contacting the IIO - they are the ones investigating the incident.

Read today on another news site that the individual shot at the Orchard Park take down is recovering in hospital and is in a wheelchair. Do not know if that is temporary or permanent.
It's possible to do all the right things and still get a bad result.

not a very upstanding contributor to society. They can't detain him in lockup, so the hospital, with a guard, has to be the way it is for now.

We still have no idea why that man was shot.

Military police shoot a unarmed man in a highly public area packed with civilians and all we know is that he had a criminal record and he allegedly road raged the previous day with "bear spray". No justification, no public statement. No weapons charges except for bear spray. Sent straight to the Independent Investigators.

If he's in a wheelchair because of trigger happy ERT member this thread is going to turn into a gong show.

"He deserves to be in a wheelchair - he had a criminal record and shot off bear spray!"

I think we’ve been over this before, and everyone (except you) seems to understand.
The police know a lot more about the individual and the situation they faced at the time than we do, and they took the appropriate actions. The suspect was apprehended and no one was hurt, except for the suspect.
I’m not sure why you refuse to accept that.

Oh look they brought out the RECON SNIPERS in our city again.

This sniper gets more action that he would have if he was stationed in Afghanistan!

He's writing a book : KABUL in KELOWNA : My time in hell

I guess the people arrested must have done something crazy like shoplifted 2 years ago and swore at a old woman in the Costco parking lot from their 1997 Honda Accord weapon-vehicle.

In some people’s minds there is...
I’ve looked at that photo several times, and I still don’t see a rifle - I see a spotting scope. Eyewitness accounts aren’t always 100% accurate.

I for one am glad of reports of our police at work. Much better than the "where WERE they?" questions we ask after crime happens.
PLEASE use spellcheck. If that is too hard, consider installing the Grammarly (free!) app that will not only spellcheck for you (AND offer corrections!) but also make sure that your sentences are grammatically correct.

You're welcome.
