Altercation between officer, Indigenous girl prompts concerns about police treatment of First Nations

 


Video showing an altercation between an Ontario Provincial Police officer and a 14-year-old Grassy Narrows First Nation girl weeks before her death shows a need for improved relations between police and Indigenous people, a Winnipeg professor says.

Azraya Kokopenace was found dead April 17, two days after OPP dropped the teen off at a hospital in Kenora, Ont. She disappeared and her body was found in the woods near the hospital.
