YouTube parody of Dziekanski death triggers controversy

A YouTube video parodying the death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski has drawn censure from the RCMP and criticism from some in the Polish community.

The video, posted Dec. 23 and titled "Mega Man vs. Polish immigrant," shows an early version of hit Nintendo video game character Mega Man zapping to death another game character superimposed with Dziekanski's face.

Dziekanski died in October after he was Tasered by RCMP officers in Vancouver International Airport.

The story is too old to be commented.

Dziedkanski dies from being TASERED to death. His friend, Baltakis, labels the video tasteless by making this statement:

"...I can tell you for Robert was not a game. It was terribly SHOCKING."
