Simon Currie said Lowndes was a friend of his for 20 years.
“Jay took me in when nobody else really would,” he told CTV News. “The police need to stop killing Indigenous people.” BCTV
Simon (rose tattoo above) and I disagree on virtually every political point. But he gets the fundamentals right.
Killing anyone who is trapped in a parked car is revolting. No police officer should ever do that unless there is a clear need for self-defence. It is an operational failure and a complete failure in supervision and training.
Jared Lowndes was murdered. The officers who killed him need to be charged with the crime. Usual presumption of innocence but the evidence needs to be tried and a verdict reached.
I’m proud of Simon for standing up and demanding justice for Jared Lowndes.
