he B.C. Prosecution Service announced Monday it has approved charges against three RCMP officers in Prince George, B.C. following a violent arrest four years ago.
Security camera footage released after the Feb. 18, 2016 arrest of two men raised questions about the RCMP’s use of force.
The silent footage shows a police dog pulling the driver of a pickup truck out and onto the ground and then continuing to pull and bite at the suspect, according to Global News reports at the time. An officer can be seen hitting and kicking the suspect.
The passenger in the pickup truck seems to get out on their own, but then three officers can be seen behind the truck hitting the passenger.
