“September 2000 — Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Police officers in Saskatoon took a Native man, Darrell Night, put him in a police car, drove him far from the city’s downtown, and dropped him off to walk home in freezing weather after taking away his coat. He survived, and on telling his story, it came out that police officers had regularly taken Native people out into the cold with no warm clothing, leaving them to freeze. The police would then blame their deaths on alcohol. Two other young aboriginal men did not survive such incidents — their bodies were found separately in the same area where Darrell Night was dropped off.
Constable Dan Hatchen and Constable Ken Munson of Saskatoon city police were charged with police brutality but were put back on the payroll during the trial. The Saskatchewan police commission ruled that they deserved to be paid, because the two officers had been cooperative and honest throughout the investigation.”
