Braden Herman, 26, was found in a wooded area in Prince Albert (Canada) on May 11, 2021.
Police officer Bernie Herman was arrested on charges of first-degree murder. The investigation established that on the day of death of Bernie Herman, the officer left duty in his uniform and with a weapon. Investigators believe he used his position to spy on Braden Herman.
The officer reportedly shot Braden. After the beginning of the investigation, the officer resigned. On June 9, 2021, a hearing was held in this case. On June 30, 2021, the officer was released on bail. He did not plead guilty. The trial in the case was postponed to May 2022.
MASS MEDIA ABOUT THE CASE:
“Corporal Herman used his power as an RCMP officer, he used an RCMP vehicle, the murder was committed with an RCMP handgun, the murder was almost execution style,” said an attorney representing Braden Herman’s family.
“I just hope we get justice,” said Herman”s sister. “That’s the only way my mom’s mind will be at ease and she’ll finally be able to rest.”
The initiative group has requested the clarification from Attorney General of Canada David T. Lametti and Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau. The initiative group believes it is important to fight against police brutality and, if necessary, will provide legal and financial assistance to the family of the victim.
