Consider the connections between the headline about rules on disclosure and other stories involving RCMP. Constable Geoff Mantler might prefer the British system that would have authorized him to arrest and charge the person who shot the video. However, before drawing conclusions, maybe we should wait for whatever justification is determined finally in five to ten years. The man on his knees might have been looking at police and about to blink in a dangerous fashion, causing Const. Mantler to fear for his own safety. At least in this case, a single kick to the head was presumably less harmful than multiple Taser strikes or gun shots.
