No misconduct charges for ‘aggressive and abusive’ Peel police interview tactics | Toronto Star
THE REID TECHNIQUE OF POLICE INVESTIGATION – An Ontario Superior court judge determined that “aggressive and abusive” tactics and “leading” questioning to obtain evidence in a murder case could only result in an acquittal. One WITNESS (not accused) was “psychologically broken down” after an eight-hour “relentless onslaught” by Peel police under repeated threat of being charged with crime if he did not change his account. An Independent Police Review found this was okay police conduct.
OIPRD found insufficient evidence to charge officers following a complaint by Eric Morgan, who spent three years in jail awaiting a murder trial.
