Even-handedness--RCMP style

Charges have finally been laid in the case of a racially-tinged brawl in Digby, N.S. A three-year veteran of the Halifax Regional Police has been charged with a summary offence (causing a disturbance) by the RCMP--and one of the two Black victims of the unprovoked attack by off-duty cops was charged as well. Causing a disturbance--and resisting a police officer.

For the RCMP, justice isn't merely blind, but evidently insane.

UPDATE: On the race relations front, there seems to be a bit of a history with the RCMP in Digby.
