A new video has surfaced that shows the Vancouver police department shooting Paul Boyd to death. Boyd was a director on Ed Edd n Eddy and animated the show’s opening titles.
We reported the story back in 2007. The Vancouver police claimed that Boyd, who suffered from mental illness, was assaulting them with a deadly weapon. He was shot eight times by policeman Lee Chipperfield, who was never held accountable for the shooting.
Witnesses of the shooting contradicted the police reports; one witness said that Boyd was on his knees and compared the shooting to an execution. The Globe and Mail reports that the video supports eyewitness accounts and shows an unarmed Boyd crawling toward police officers. It has prompted the Vancouver police department to ask an independent investigative body in Alberta, Canada to review the case again.
