  1. Still ongoing. No new information, sorry.

    I understand the RCMP have a difficult job. All manner of dangerous situations. I still think this reaction was WAY overboard. Obviously we don't have all the information...part of the problem...from the outside looking in it seems crazy.

  3. As I read this, it appears to have taken them nearly 12 hours to enter a house with a dead man in it? True we don't have all the information, or what sort of risks they were concerned about, but i find that just a little...excessive.
