Cops are investigating cops again in Canada. This time members of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will be in Corner Brook, Newfoundland to investigate the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) officer who shot and killed Jorden McKay on November 27, 2018. Two officers involved in the interaction and both have been placed on leave. They will be assigned to administrative duties when they return to work as the investigation continues. Neither officer has been named publicly, generally the case in Canada where it is difficult for families and communities to find out the names and histories of police who kill.
The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) which has a history of letting killer cops off, will carry out a review of the OPP’s investigation, once that wraps up.
The victim of a shooting by Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) on November 27, 2018, has been publicly identified as 27-year-old Jorden McKay. It has been reported that McKay was a father to two young children. McKay’s family has expressed concerns about details being released by police to the media before telling the family. The two RNC officers involved in the killing of Jorden McKay have not been named publicly as is typically the case in Canada where it is difficult for families and communities to find out the names and histories of police who kill.
A Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) officer in Corner Brook shot and killed a man on the evening of November 27, 2018. The killing reportedly happened at a home on Carriage Lake at around 11:30 PM. Few additional details have been released publicly.
