LETTER: Slain officer’s funeral turned into a spectacle of power

Two days after a gunman killed Abbotsford Cst. John Davidson, a Toronto radio station reported that a security guard in that city was taken to hospital without vital signs after being stabbed by a shoplifter. If further news about this was ever released, it's hard to find. Contrast that with the extensive coverage about the police officer.
