RCMP enjoying "open season" on Alberta Indians

This makes it three dead in two weeks.

What's wrong with this picture?

Pretty much everything. While details are scarce, the RCMP persist in entering reservations on the flimsiest of pretexts. A violent confrontation because somebody may have been drinking or didn't show up in court simply doesn't make any sense.

RCMP need to make non-violent interaction their fall-back position, instead of treating every encounter with the public as an opportunity to strut their SWAT swagger.

A change in policing strategies is long overdue.
