Residents of Akwesasne call for the firing of a police officer

APTN National News
Usually when a bravery award is handed out – the community comes together to celebrate.

But not in Akwesasne.

Three weeks ago a constable was given the award for trying to free a couple trapped in a burning car after it was involved in a collision.

The problem here is – some believe the collision was caused by the officer.

APTN’s Annette Francis has that story.
