Curtis Hallock, who played the faithful Indian sidekick on Mantracker, was shot down by Alberta Mounties on Thursday at a police check-point.
Didn't know we had police check-points in the Great White North... oh yes, I see... just to make sure you haven't been drinking... ah ha!
Yes, so they are not police check-points per se; they are PUBLIC SAFETY CHECK-POINTS!
In Alberta these public safety checkpoints are often found on the perimeter of Indian reservations, because, well, you know about the drunken Indians and all that, don't you?
It's been a busy few days for the Mounties. Not only did they get Tonto, they got a couple more Indians near Pigeon Lake.
Plus they tased a guy dead in LeDuc. No word yet on whether that too was a mis-behavin' native.
