Just viewed the video again and brutality is the only way to describe dragging an old man down stairs by his feet.
As for the treatment of the woman, it was stupidity.
Neither of these are characteristics that should be tolerated in Canada’s “finest”.
For comparison, look at video of the Kinder Morgan or Carmanah protests and what do you see?
Protesters being “carried” by at least two officers — not dragged by their heels.
This situation is an astounding revelation and, when tied to the recent sexual harassment/assault issues the RCMP have experienced, suggests that some authority, much higher than tiny New West’s police force, should be conducting a pervasive review of the RCMP.
