Innisfail Arrests Spark Accusations of Brutality against First Nations Women by Mounties
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) is once again under fire after recently arresting two First Nations women in Innisfail, Alberta. According to reports, the women were subjected to unnecessary force and brutality during their arrest.
The incident took place on March 28th, when RCMP officers responded to a call about a disturbance in a residential area. When they arrived at the scene, they encountered the two women, who were allegedly involved in the disturbance.
The RCMP claims that the women were uncooperative and resistant during the arrest, which prompted them to use force to subdue them. However, witnesses at the scene tell a different story.
According to eyewitnesses, the women were not resisting arrest at the time but were instead complying with the officers’ instructions. However, the RCMP officers used excessive force, including throwing the women to the ground, punching them in the face, and tasering them.
One of the eyewitnesses, who filmed the incident, said, “It was horrifying to see what was happening. These officers had no regard for the well-being of the women they were arresting.”
Claims of Racism
The incident has sparked accusations of racism and police brutality against the RCMP, with many people pointing out that this is not the first time such incidents have occurred.
Indigenous people have long complained of mistreatment at the hands of the RCMP, who they accuse of disproportionately targeting and abusing First Nations people.

Following the incident, the RCMP announced that it had launched an investigation into the officers’ conduct during the arrest. The officers involved have been placed on administrative duties pending the outcome of the investigation.
However, many people are skeptical about the investigation, given the RCMP’s track record of not holding its officers accountable for their actions.
“This is just another whitewash attempt by the RCMP to cover up their brutality,” said one Indigenous activist. “We need an independent inquiry to investigate this incident and hold the officers accountable for their actions.”
The Need for Change
The incident highlights the urgent need for change within the RCMP. Indigenous people have long called for an overhaul of the police force, citing its long history of mistreatment of First Nations people.
The federal government has promised to address these issues, but critics say that not enough is being done to hold the RCMP accountable and prevent such incidents from happening in the future.
Until this changes, Indigenous people will continue to live in fear of the very people who are supposed to protect them.
