alleged[/b] assault.]A man kicked in the head during an arrest in Kelowna is suing the officers involved and two levels of government for the alleged assault.

It is on fucking video! There is no "alleged" about it, he was kicked in the face! They love to forget that word if a woman makes a claim with no supporting evidence but a man being beaten on tape is still only an "alleged" incident!?!?


don't forget-the cop plead,"not guilty"to charges,even with the damning video evidence.


Yea cops and women do this crap all the time and get away with it.  But if you flinch or recoil in pain and brush against a woman or cop, then somehow you've assaulted them.   


B.C. 'kicking Mountie' changes plea to guilty

The RCMP officer charged with assault causing bodily harm for kicking a suspect in the face in Kelowna, B.C., has pleaded guilty in the midst of his trial.

Const. Geoff Mantler's lawyer entered the plea in a Kelowna courtroom Wednesday, the same day Mantler was scheduled to testify. As the day's proceedings began, Mantler's lawyer told the court his client had decided to enter a guilty plea.

Mantler kicked weapons suspect Buddy Tavares in the face while the man was on his knees in a January 2011 incident caught on video, which immediately went viral on the internet.

The video showed Tavares on his knees, as instructed by Mantler, and moving to get down on his hands when Mantler kicked him, causing Tavares to collapse to the pavement, his face bleeding.

The central issue of the trial was whether the kick was justified under the circumstances or constituted an assault.

Police had been seeking Tavares following reports of a man firing a rifle at a golf course, and the court had been told police were warned the suspect might be dangerous.

The court was adjourned after the sudden change in plea.
