'I forgive them': Indigenous man injured by officers reaches resolution with Regina police

An Indigenous man who was injured by Regina officers nearly four years ago has reached a resolution with police and prompted new training for cops.

Simon Ash-Moccasin says it's been an arduous process, but he's satisfied that his experience has made a positive change for Indigenous people.

"I feel confident that, in this day and age, in this world that we live in, that we're being heard as Indigenous people," Ash-Moccasin said Friday after signing a joint statement with Regina police Chief Evan Bray.

In December 2014, Ash-Moccasin says he was roughed up by two Regina police officers while he was walking in downtown Regina. They said he fit the description of a suspect they were looking for.
