    Inquiry recommended into death of Native man
    Wednesday, January 21, 2004

    After conducting an investigation, British Columbia's Police Complaints Commissioner is recommending a public inquiry into the death of a Native man who was being held in police custody.

    A videotape released to Frank Paul's family shows police dragging him out of the police station and leaving him an alley. Paul, 47, a member of the Big Cove First Nation in New Brunswick, later died of hypothermia.

    Commissioner Dirk Ryneveld released a lengthy decision document. "The troubling circumstances of Mr. Paul’s tragic death are still, now some five years later, in need of a full public examination to determine what factors led to his death and how a similar tragedy may be avoided in the future," he wrote.

    I saw the videotape on the news. Those guys should have been charged with manslaughter for letting that man freeze to death.
