#CAJ15: Lessons from Moncton

Last June, Jim Foster was in the thick of a horrific story in his hometown -- the murder of three RCMP officers and the hunt for their killer. The longtime Moncton Times & Transcript reporter spent all but a few hours on the streets, inside the hot zone, penetrating the police lockdown area at will through his experience working with police and more than a little good fortune. When Justin Bourque was finally caught at midnight two nights later, out of the swarm of reporters from across Canada who were in Moncton, Jim was able to watch the arrest and videotape the killer being taken into custody in a scene of utter confusion and chaos. Jim shares with us what he learned during that ordeal.
