WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) - An indigenous chief alleged on Saturday that Canadian police beat him in March after an incident involving an expired licence plate on his truck.

Chief Allan Adam of Athabasca Chipeywan First Nation displays his wounds that he says were caused by Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officers of the Wood Buffalo detachment in an incident in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada March 10, 2020.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), however, say officers used reasonable force after Chief Allan Adam of Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation resisted arrest, and laid criminal charges against him.

Adam made the allegations as protests spread around the world following the death in Minneapolis of a black man in police custody on May 25.

Indigenous people this week expressed outrage at two other incidents with Canadian police, including the shooting death of a young woman.

Senior police reviewed in-car video and determined police actions were reasonable and an external investigation not justified, said RCMP Const.

The chief is due in court on July 2, charged with resisting arrest and assaulting police. »

"Dogma was catching heat from the Catholic League so Disney let the Weinsteins buy the movie themselves (they still personally own the film).

The "heat" in question was that the Catholic League was threatening a boycott of Disney if they permitted the film to be released.

Smith himself, meanwhile, infiltrated a group of Catholic protesters and ended up on the local news complaining about his own movie. »
