The Royal Canadian Mounted Police has said it is looking for leaked screenshots of authorities celebrating injured protestors demonstrating against Canada’s coronavirus mandates (Fox News).
A member of the RCMP Musical Ride supposedly wrote, “Time for the protesters to hear our jackboots on the ground.” The Musical Ride is an RCMP group assisting “front-line police operations by building positive relationships, supporting recruiting efforts and promoting the RCMP’s image in communities in Canada.”
The RCMP member apparently received pushback for his statement and responded, “Okay we can give out free hugs and unicorn stickers.” These messages come from a group chat for the RCMP Musical Ride.
A RCMP representative said in a statement that the messages are being looked into. The statement reads, “This material is not representative of those who have committed themselves to serving Canadians with integrity and professionalism.”
Additionally, another message from the RCMP Musical Ride group chat said, “Don’t kick all of them out until next week’s group gets our turn.” This message came with a picture of a beer. Another member commented on a video of people getting trampled by a police officer on a horse in Ottawa, calling it “awesome.”
