RCMP harasses a Newspaper Editor

RCMP harasses a newspaper editor in small town Canada, apparently there is video.
For 20 minutes this past Friday night, I was treated like a criminal and presumed guilty until proven innocent, which is not how the law is supposed to work
RCMP replied: “As the Editor of a local newspaper, your readers must feel it important to know that when you report something in your paper, it is factual. I imagine your credibility and that of the Osoyoos Times relies heavily on that.

“Well sir, I’m very pleased to report that there is a video of this incident. The video was taken from the police car and includes audio of the entire interaction between you and the police officer. I have just watched the video and observed a very calm and professional member of the RCMP doing his job.”[1]

I wonder if the Royal Canadian Mounted Police will release the video to YouTube
