    September 20, 2016

    There are some serious reasons as to why the Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls is a bad idea. Let's begin with two. In the first place, many more Indigenous men and boys are victims. While the situation for women and girls is not completely the same, neither is it totally different from that of males.

    This anatomy of a confrontation with police is based solely on the account of the event given by the civilian who was involved in the conflict with police.
