Police Recommend Charges Against RCMP Officer After Arrest Caught on Video

An outside police force recommended an assault charge Sunday against a British Columbia RCMP officer after a violent arrest that was caught on tape, announcing the decision about an hour before several hundred people rallied against "police brutality" in Kelowna.

The video showing a Mountie kicking Buddy Tavares in the face during an arrest on Jan. 7 in Kelowna has been fuelling anti-police sentiment in the city, prompting about 300 people to march from a local park to the RCMP detachment Sunday afternoon.'
