The mistakes of the right victim

Documentary, of course Kills right Six months after its theatrical release, it continues to garner rave reviews.

Yesterday, Radio-Canada aired a documentary on Monique Neron and Emily Perrol. We already know that four associations of Quebec defense lawyers have written to the administration and the ombudsman of Radio-Canada to complain.

However, I knew the dissatisfaction was coming from the side of the crown!

Patrick Michael, director of criminal and criminal cases, has also written to Radio-Canada to complain about the “wrongdoing” reported in the film.

Edit the facts

Kills right There are many qualities: It gives voice to the victims of an attack who have experienced a terrible shock. But it also has major drawbacks.

When the film came out, I wrote several reviews to point out real errors or contradictions.

The movie has been available for several weeks on iTunes, Google, Microsoft, Telus, Rogers, Shaw, Bell and Videotron (Illigo and Helix).

However, the state-owned company, a public network, subject to precision standards, provoked DPCP’s dissatisfaction.

Sent to Radio-Canada Administration here.

“Director of Criminal and Penal Cases, some of the misconduct found there reinforces prejudice, making it difficult for the victim to get justice, and this training leads to further motivation for victims to file a complaint.”

The DPCP recalls that the authorization rate for sexual assault cases abducted by the Montreal City Police Department is 70% and the number quoted in the documentary is 18%.

In the documentary, a defense lawyer, Mr. We see Patrick Davis saying that he never failed in a case of sexual harassment. But this is wrong.

This shocks the DPCP: “We have also provided the directors with a list of reasons why its clients have been convicted of sexual harassment, and this is from the film’s trailer release.”

And the DPCP decides:

“We respectfully submit that appropriate action or warnings should be taken before or during the broadcast to prevent victims of sexual violence from reporting.”

Auditing is not the case

Asked by Duty, Directors Monique Neron and Emily Perrol regret that “we are trying to prevent people from seeing the documentary”.

But that is not it. Neither the Quebec Defense Lawyers Association nor the DPCP want to stop the documentary from airing.

But even after six months of knowing that the information in the documentary was incorrect, I still wonder why the two directors did not stick fact-correcting banners at the bottom of the screen.

They added To : “Obviously, our documentary is disturbing, and rightly so. That is what sometimes makes the difference.

We should not confuse “disturbing documentary with shaking the cage” and “disturbing documentary with misinformation”.
