Supreme Court Further Protects the Impunity Of Police and SIU

TORONTO — Ontario's highest court has ruled the family of a teen fatally shot by Toronto police can't sue the province's police watchdog over its investigation of the incident.

Duane Christian, 15, was shot by police on June 20, 2006, while driving a stolen minivan in the parking lot of an east-end highrise apartment building.

The Special Investigations Unit cleared the officers of wrongdoing, but Christian's family alleged the investigation was incompetent and filed a $2-million negligence lawsuit.
