A Regina man continues to insist he was racially profiled by the Regina Police Service while being detained in December 2014.
Simon Ash-Moccasin was walking home on December 10, 2014 when he was detained by officers. The police say they thought Ash-Moccasin fit the description of a suspect who had stolen a television earlier that day.
Ash-Moccasin filed a complaint with the Public Complaints Commission and the report found the officers used unnecessary force.
On Monday he delivered that PCC report to City Hall with hopes to speak with Mayor Fougere. Ash-Moccasin says at a December 7, 2015 City Council Meeting, Mayor Fougere censured public presenters from mentioning his incident with police.
He says racism is a huge issue in the city and there is a lack of accountability in the Regina Police Service.
“That night when I was pulled aside the police were told to look for someone with no front teeth, short hair, dressed in all black and aboriginal, carrying a TV. I matched one of those, I am aboriginal.”
Mayor Fougere declined to come down and meet Ash-Moccasin.
Ash-Moccasin says he is filing a report with the Human Rights Commission.
