Want to reduce police use of force? Experts say you need more women

One night in November 2017, a 15-year-old Indigenous boy was riding a snowmobile with five other people when Mounties stopped them just outside of Tuktoyaktok in the Northwest Territories.

The Mounties asked the boys a few questions, which per a statement of claim, they answered. And then, without provocation, the RCMP officers are alleged to have pushed the 15-year-old to the ground before choking, punching and using a stun gun on him.

They then handcuffed the boy, whom they allegedly called a “stupid f**king Native” and a “Native punk kid,” before bringing him back to the police station.
