Officer Charged in Shooting Death

Well surprise surprise, the police actually do charge their own.

I reported on Eric Osawe a couple months back after his family had emailed me. Eric was shot to death by a police officer two months ago in an Etobicoke raid. It has now been stated that the officer Const. David Cavanagh faces a manslaughter charge and will be going to court to face his alleged offence.

In the raid, police state that a fight ensued and Osawe was then shot. Eric's younger brother was also in the apartment at the time and was charged with firearm offences. Now we still don't know what the outcome will be but the best part is that a jury will decide his fate rather than his fellow police officers.

These cops need to learn when it is the appropriate time to use their weapons and think before they decide to fire their gun.
