Montreal Police ShootingMontreal Police Shooting, The four police officers who participated in the center of Tuesday’s fatal shooting not yet been questioned. Researchers are still looking for proof; they say that will happen in the coming days. This has led to the civil population to question the transparency of the police.
The former homicide detective Steve Roberts said it is time that an independent review board to investigate incidents involving police officers.

“We are 2011,” he said. “It is time that a civilian review board is not going to do something different, but it seems more transparent to the public, when a policeman is investigating the other.”

The shooting on Tuesday claimed the life of an experienced 36-year-old fan, Hospital Saint-Luc, Patrick Lamoga originating in Trios-Rivieres. The incident began last week in Ste Santa Catalina, where Mario Hamel, 40, was cutting open garbage bags, then a foot chase what happened next is uncertain, but that ended with the death of the two and the chain of events now hidden in the research records of official policy.

The public outrage at the two deaths led to demonstrations in the street where dozens of police violence and reported on Wednesday that worked with Limoges in the Saint Luc Hospital solemnly marched through Rene Levesque to where he was shot.

The shooting also raises many questions of what could or should have been done differently when police pursued a suspect in a problem near a busy intersection during rush hour in the morning.

Could a jolt from a Taser have saved the lives of Limoges and Patrick Hamel Mario? Was it an option? There were “four police officers trying to subdue an itinerant. It was an unequal battle” carried out “a lot of people around.”

Quebec Public Security Minister defended the police force in Montreal this week and said the statistics show they are not trigger-happy.

“It’s terrible, and I sympathize with the family about it,” said Robert Dutil.

“We’re having an investigation, an independent investigation.”

According to the annual reports of the strength of Montreal, in 2007, the Montreal police used tasers 32 times and fired five shots from their guns. In 2008, Tasers were used 22 times and nine shots were fired. Last year, Tasers were used 17 times and had nine shots, in which 19 shots.

However, Tasers remain controversial and have been cited in several deaths. Perhaps the most notorious was the death of Robert Dziekanski, a Polish immigrant who was distraught with five strokes Taser zapping by Mounted in the Vancouver airport, an incident that was captured on video.

Official statistics indicate the government of Quebec 72 people have been killed or seriously injured by police gunfire in the province during the past 12 years.

In Acceuil Bonneau, the homeless shelter who helped Hamel, which had helped them find their own room in St. Denis, he said, while by all accounts he was disturbed, showing a willingness to improve their lives.

Families and Patrick Lamoga colleagues have expressed anger and shock at his sudden death, but the family refuses to blame the police action in this sad incident
