Shooting video should be released

Video of a deadly shooting by police in Rothesay over three years ago should be released, according to the Information and Privacy Commissioner.

CBC has been trying for 15 months to get the video from a body camera that shows the shooting of William David McCaffrey in his family’s home in February of 2014.  Information and Privacy Commissioner Anne Bertrand has determined public interest trumps privacy in this case…that people should see exactly what happened.

CBC says the Kennebecasis Regional Police Serice isn’t required to follow her ruling and will be getting legal advise.
