Police Brutality in BC

The Kelowna man kicked in the face while being arrested by the RCMP says he was just doing his job when he fired his shotgun to scare geese away from a golf course last Friday, and he is mystified by the force’s accusation that the incident is somehow connected to domestic violence.

Buddy Tavares, 51, was already dealing with a brain injury from a motorcycle accident when he was kicked by a plainclothes RCMP officer during a violent takedown that was caught on video.

The officer involved has since been suspended with pay while he faces an internal RCMP code of conduct investigation, as well as a criminal investigation.

After seeing this video it is easy to be upset, now can we get a little bit of Justice here?

  1. The Abbotsford Police were asked to investigate,and they recommended charges be laid against the RCMP Constable,Mantler,who kicked the guy in the face.

    Another person has come forward and laid a complaint against Const.Mantler,and again the person is not a low lifer,but a guy who was repossessing a boat for a bailiff,completely legal, was roughed up by the same RCMP Constable.

    Seems like the RCMP don’t vet their recruits as well as they used to,they’re letting in bully boys and thugs.

  2. Mantler is a bully and a coward. Kicking someone in the face when they are down on their hands and knees in an act of compliance, while holding and pointing an automatic weapon at the head of the prone victim, is an act of vile, morally repugnant, pathological violence, perpetrated by a thuggish coward. The RCMP should get rid of this loose cannon, violent, idiot as fast as possible, as well as emancipating themselves from the last 40 years of imposed Trudeauvian hiring and promotion practices.
