RCMP terror

JUSTICE FOR MONA WANG


[Note: RCMP is the national police of Canada (Royal Canadian Mounted Police), which has jurisdiction in areas without other local police.]

On January 20th, 2020, a nursing student named Mona Wang was assaulted by Officer Lacey Browning after the former's boyfriend called the RCMP to request a wellness check for her.

Browning claims that when she entered the apartment, Wang was lying on the floor next to empty wine and pill bottles, holding a box cutter and bearing self-harm cuts. She claims that Wang soon became violent and was subdued when Browning "struck [Wang] several times with an open palm".

Video footage from Wang's apartment building shows Browning dragging Wang's semi-conscious body by the arms down the hallway and over to the entrance of the building. She can then be seen lifting Wang's head and upper body by her hair and stepping on her head as she lies on the floor before lifting her up and pulling her out of the building.

It is also alleged that Browning attempted to mislead the medical professionals once they reached the hospital and lied that Wang had taken methamphetamine. Toxicologists at the hospital later proved that Wang never had any illegal drugs in her system. It is believed that this lie was told to justify the abusive actions of Browning.

Although Wang filed a civil suit against the RCMP, the legal response stated that "the limited use of force by the defendant Browning was no more than was reasonable and necessary in the circumstances to both direct compliance as well as protect the plaintiff from further harm", despite the abuse shown in the video. 

I'm sure we can all agree that the use of force that Wang was subjected to was definitely neither "limited" nor "reasonable" or "necessary". Browning's job was to de-escalate a situation and help someone in a mental health crisis. Not only did she fail to do her job correctly, she also physically abused Wang and lied about her using drugs as an excuse. 

We need to do better for our citizens struggling with their mental health. They should be met with trained professionals, not uniformed officers. The most vulnerable people in our communities should not be dragged down hallways, pulled by the hair, and stepped on in their times of need.

We are calling on the RCMP and the Canadian Government to fire Officer Lacey Browning and charge her with assault. She must not be allowed to hurt an already struggling person ever again.
