It has just been made public that the BC RCMP has warned its officers that modern technology could prove to be a vice. In a report written approximately one month before the Dziekanski death, RCMP officers were warned that phone cameras and You Tube could make them especially vulnerable to public scrutiny of their actions. It further stated that recordings of police activities could lead to "increasingly more public exposure of RCMP member actions that some may perceive to be inappropriate." The BC RCMP has not commented on whether this report was the result of any RCMP-related incident.
