Summary "Images of Robert Dziekanski convulsing after being shocked by a Mountie's Taser went viral in 2007. International outrage and domestic shame followed the release of that painful video. It had taken just twenty-six seconds for four Mounties to surround and discharge a Taser on the Polish immigrant at Vancouver International Airport. A decade later, after millions of dollars spent on an inquiry and failed prosecutions, a story has emerged that reveals what happened to those whose lives remain marked by what happened in those twenty-six seconds. Blamed and Broken turns the familiar "Bad Cop" narrative on its head, offering a less tidy version of the truth, written by an experienced, award-winning CBC investigative journalist who has covered every step of the story since the day Robert Dziekanski died."-- Provided by publisher
