Gary Mason in today's Globe has a thought experiment of his own:
Just imagine if Joe Canadian were tasered in, oh, I don't know, let's say the Bangkok airport.
And Joe Canadian died.
Imagine that the Thai police took nine months to complete their investigation, an investigation that included a trip to Canada to look into Joe's past.
And in the end, they decided not to prosecute the police officers involved.
Their report says Joe died because he drank too much and suffered from a flying phobia, which combined to weaken his system and made him vulnerable when he was blasted with 50,000 volts of electricity.
Imagine how Canadians would react to a report like that.
Yeah. Imagine that.
