Police and protesters are both alleging wrongdoing in an incident that led to two demonstrators being arrested Thursday outside the Calgary Courts Centre.
The protest has been ongoing outside the downtown courthouse since July 26, with a group calling for the Calgary Police Service to fire Const. Alex Dunn.

Dunn was convicted of assault earlier this year for a 2017 incident where he slammed a handcuffed Black woman face-first to the ground in an arrest processing facility.
The woman, Dalia Kafi, died from a suspected drug overdose in June. Dunn was suspended without pay and handed a 30-day conditional sentence, including 15 days of house arrest.
