Victoria police surveillance video shows her bound and tethered in cell
A B.C. teenager alleges Victoria police assaulted and unlawfully confined her when she was just 15.
Police surveillance videotape shows Willow Kinloch detained in a padded cell, where police officers are seen holding her down, handcuffing her, tying her feet and leaving her tethered to the cell door, where she stayed for four hours.
Kinloch's family has filed a civil law suit against the City of Victoria and the four officers involved. The case is expected to go to trial this fall.
