Description

On November 13th, 2014 after countless activists marched in the streets demanding an end to police brutality in Winnipeg, activists surrounded the Public Safety Building which houses the Winnipeg Police Service. The building had to be shut down because of the protesters marching towards the building. Activists and police ended up in confrontational arguments. Winnipeggers were furious after Lana Sinclair, the mother of a police officer herself was allegedly brutalized in her home by police in front of her 8 year old son over a false alarm. She was getting her son ready to go out for Halloween and yelled for her partner to hurry up. An overly concerned neighbor called the police and one police officer started getting physical. The officer allegedly poked Lana in the chest to which Lana told him to stop. This ended in the police officer punching Lana in the face, hitting her in the knee and seriously brutalizing her giving her two black eyes. Before the police building was stormed, one activist confronted a police officer as the march took over the busy intersection of Portage and Main, asking "Do you guys get paid well to beat up women?" to which he got an unsettling answer from the officer: "We get paid very well." One could only call the anti-police brutality march intense as it truly was intense. Enjoy this one of a kind video and please share! Be safe out there!
