Worse, the only justice they have anything to do with is the sort preferred by the Queen in Alice in Wonderland. “No! No!” she cried. “Sentence first — verdict afterwards.”
The fact that young Mr Yatim had been exposing himself and brandishing a knife in a very public venue continues to be seen as irrelevant. The fact that Mr Yatim had, at the moment he was shot, charged at police, screaming like a madman with a knife in his hand is similarly glossed over.

Perhaps they'll have to rewrite the procedural manual at the Ontario Police College.

Until that's cleared up, the next time you encounter a raving lunatic with a knife, I suggest you call Andre Marin or Alok Mukherjee.

Although dying, Constable Garrett somehow managed to draw his firearm and pursue his attacker, firing off his entire clip of 17 bullets. Constable Garrett was able to wound his murderer with his last shot before he succumbed to his injury.
Which of the two endings above do you prefer?
