Kelowna RCMP officer under investigation:

A Kelowna RCMP officer has been placed on administrative duties and will be subject to criminal and internal investigations after an allegedly violent arrest Friday, police say.

Police received a call Friday morning reporting that a male employee of the Harvest Golf Club in Kelowna was on the property with a shotgun, said Kelowna RCMP Supt. Bill McKinnon.

McKinnon said witnesses heard shots fired and said the man then left the scene in a pickup truck and that officers soon tracked him down and arrested him.

A freelance member of the media following the story made a video recording of the arrest, and a copy of it was given to McKinnon.

The video shows the suspect being ordered to his hands and knees by police and after he assumes the position, an officer appears to step up and kick him in the face.

"I have reviewed that video, and I have ordered a statutory investigation of excessive force as well as a code of conduct investigation in relation to the manner in which the officer executed his duties," McKinnon told a news conference.

The officer, who has not been identified, joined the Kelowna RCMP immediately after graduation from the force's academy in July 2007, McKinnon said.

He said it was up to RCMP provincial headquarters in Vancouver to decide if the officer would be suspended.

The golf club employee who allegedly fired the shots was on disability leave at the time of his arrest, McKinnon said, because of a brain injury he sustained in a motorcycle accident last summer.

He said the man had a permit to fire the gun for the purpose of scaring geese off the golf course but could not say if that's what the man was doing Friday.

After a full investigation by abbotsford police (who have thier own history of abusive arrests), and a bunch of protesters in front of the RCMP office asking for charges, after multiple witnesses, they still wanted more "evidence" but after a local backlash "the Abbotsford Police Department is announcing that a charge of assault causing bodily harm will be recommended". Btw the offending officer is now on suspension with pay!

I get a warm feeling inside knowing that officer is going to have a very uncomfortable life in jail. Cops are not supposed to be chicken sh#ts, and that was a chicken sh#t move if i have ever seen one.

Thank you RCMP for doing the right thing and putting this man in general population with the rest of Canada's violent offenders. I say D.O. his a## and make an example of him. He could re enter the public with a chip on his shoulder and put more people in danger.

In Chicago if you audio record a police officer you can be charged with a felony. This way they can lie about what was said. They don't mind if you have a helmet camera that video records without sound because everyone is desensitized to their brutal attacks which are always thought to be justified.

Just another outstanding job by the RCMP. /sarcasm

I don't know about other provinces, but it seems particularly in BC we have a lot of RCMP abuse going on lately.

In B.C. we actually get it pretty easy, brutality has been on the rise lately here, but we are still low compared to other provinces, and especially other countries!

I keep thinking back to that video of the cop pushing the woman down with MS on the DTES. Such disgrace to people who actually honour their uniform.

Are people in British Columbia outraged about a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer kicking a submissive, handcuffed man in the face because things like this don't happen very much in Canada? While the crimes of the Chicago Police "Red Squad" directed by Paul Baraz, and including Joseph Mariner, Richard Sharp, Don Zalinski, Richard Zoolie, Mike Russow, Leon Pikor, Jeff Kim, Rich Powles and Shannon Clark, as well as the retired cops Jon Burge and Pierre Zonis, are usually not covered by journalists they are legendary here. If I am correct by inferring from your statement that this Mountie is "Such (a) disgrace to those who honour their uniform" that you are a cop who has "crossed the thin blue line" then either you are extraordinary or your police are not nearly as bad as America's.
