Majiza Philip believes things would have played out differently if the police officers who arrested her four years ago had been wearing body cameras.
Philip was left with a broken arm — and, following surgery, six pins and a steel plate — after a 2014 encounter with Montreal police.
She was arrested outside Olympia Theatre after tapping on the window of a police cruiser, trying to get the attention of a friend detained inside.
Philip was charged with assaulting a police officer and obstructing justice.
There is no video of the incident, and Philip spent three years in and out of court fighting her case.
