Isolated incidents, Canadian edition

RCMP Corporal Robinson, who helped Tazer to death a confused Polish man in the Vancouver airport two years ago, and who went on a year ago to get drunk and smash his jeep into a motorcyclist, killing him, will not face charges for impaired driving causing death or dangerous driving causing death; the BC Attorney General thinks it too hard to get a conviction. He's now finally being charged, but only with obstruction of justice. After the accident, he fled the scene and downed some vodka: either because of the trauma of the sober crash or to blur the evidence of his having been drunk.

He was suspended with pay last October, after he killed the motorcyclist. He's still suspended with pay.

Things aren't all rosy in New Zealand either, as previously noted here and here.
