Cops lose sight of justice?

Son confused why police don’t seem to care about the alleged abuse his mother has suffered

Simon Kent, The Saturday Sun

In pure legal terms, police feel they have nowhere to go with a prosecution. “On review of all the evidence collected it was our opinion that the investigation was lacking in criminal intent, one of the elements required for a charge of assault in the Criminal Code of Canada,” a spokesman for the police said. Still, the aggravated manner in which the feces-covered cloth is waved in the face of Camille Parent’s mother is hardly the look of a fond farewell. Her response to push it away shows to some observers that she was defending herself against the nurse. Then there is the image that has been released of the mother with an unexplained black eye that would cause many people to wonder just why police are so keen to tell the public there’s nothing to be seen here. Parent said “We are always told that the elderly are not alone, they should not fear being alone and somebody is always there to help them. “Well, here I have video evidence of my mother in peril yet nobody will listen to me. What do I have to do to get anyone to take action?”
