Sherri Penner says she would not wish what happened to her son, Evan Penner, on anyone.

"He did not deserve that," she said through tears at a news conference Thursday at the office of the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN) regarding the force used in her son's arrest by Saskatoon police this past Saturday.

She travelled from Manitoba after seeing video of the arrest of her son, who is from Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation in northern Manitoba.
