The force is being criticized especially for their use of camouflaged snipers and police dogs.

  1. So I’m to leave my firearms out in the open? i’d put them away too. especially with kids around.

  2. The Mi’kmaq showed up with hand drums, tobacco and sage. And they come with armed officers, attack dogs, and tear gas. I wonder why they’re no longer calling it peaceful (sarcasm).

  3. They may have found guns but that was during their early morning raid. So what was the reason for the early morning raid before they found their reason?

  4. Oh come on! Hidden? Hello, if you are amongst youth and children, of course you are going to tuck away hunting guns. You’d be irresponsible if you didn’t keep them from prying eyes and hands.

  5. The way the RCMP came in, guns, dogs, calling people “f****ng Indians, what did they expect. They went out of their way to inflame emotion. I am not in NB, I am not first nation, I was not aware of the fracking issue. I now am very angry at the RCMP, the government and a greedy Texas oil firm. God bless the demonstrators.
