A North Vancouver man recently died after he was shot by a police officer. The shooting death is currently under investigation, but it raises questions around police-involved deaths and deaths in custody. This topic was explored by a panel of international experts in Vancouver on January 21, 2010. Stark Raven Radio's Tiffany Chong interviews David MacAlister - one of the organizers of this public forum. He is a Criminology professor at Simon Fraser University and the Coordinator of BC Civil Liberties Association’s Death In Custody Project.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
