Robert Wright sustained a serious head injury during a take down in a RCMP holding cell in Terrace in 2012. The BC First Nations man was left with permanent brain damage.
Mr. Wright’s case received additional media coverage in 2014 when video of the holding cell incident surfaced. Since then, new allegations of the use of excessive force by one of the RCMP officers involved have come to light. The allegations involve the treatment of two other First Nations men in and around the time Mr. Wright suffered his injury.
