Panel rules police who took kids treated dying Alberta woman with compassion

Monica Pomahac-Lansing died the day after the children were taken in August 2005

 

A panel has ruled that police officers who had a court order to take a dying woman’s children away from her acted with compassion.

 

Andrea Glover had filed an appeal with the Law Enforcement Review Board that claimed her gravely ill sister would have lived longer if officers from the police force in Lethbridge, Alta., had not taken away the children.

 

Glover accused the officers of being aggressive when they took the youngsters from Monica Pomahac-Lansing to return them to the custody of their father.

 

Pomahac-Lansing died the day after the children were taken in August 2005.

The review board has dismissed the appeal, saying the officers did what they had to with “respect, integrity and professionalism.”

The board also says video tapes shown during a hearing in May completely exonerated the officers.
