Oh and since wilber is so insistent that I find more Canadian examples of shitty cops, here's one about a city police service that is so racist people are calling for the whole thing to be disbanded

Report urges more re-investigations into deaths of Indigenous people in Thunder Bay, On

The chair of the police board in Thunder Bay, Ont. has apologized to families following the completion of a report that re-examined the deaths of multiple Indigenous people and recommended investigations into more than a dozen other cases.

Ontario's Officer of the Chief Coroner released a report Thursday detailing the re-investigations of nine sudden deaths of Indigenous people in Thunder Bay.
The latest report is in response to some of the dozens of recommendations made in the Office of the Independent Police Review Director's examination of the Thunder Bay Police Service, entitled "Broken Trust," that was released in 2018.

The office found the service's failure to adequately investigate certain cases was in part due to "racist attitudes and racial stereotyping."

It also concluded that the sudden death investigations it reviewed were so "problematic" that at least nine should be reinvestigated.

"I find systemic racism exists in TBPS at an institutional level," then-director Gerry McNeilly said.
