Hate Divides a CommunityFLIN FLON MB – There are often consequences for what are often impromptu postings on social media. In Flin Flon Manitoba, the consequences include charges and apparently job termination.

The case made widespread social media waves as one of the women apparently was suggesting shooting Indigenous people. The social media postings were made after a woman in Flin Flon took to social media following vandalism to her vehicle.

The RCMP were called. Over the weekend, and into this week the investigation continued. On July 29, 2018, Flin Flon RCMP received numerous reports of mischief to vehicles and property throughout Flin Flon, Manitoba. Several individuals took to a local Flin Flon Facebook page to vent about the mischief to property. That venting quickly escalated into hateful and threatening language against residents of First Nations communities.

RCMP report, that on July 29, 2018, Flin Flon RCMP received numerous reports of mischief to vehicles and property throughout Flin Flon, Manitoba. Several individuals took to a local Flin Flon Facebook page to vent about the mischief to property. That venting quickly escalated into hateful and threatening language against residents of First Nations communities.

The RCMP takes these matters very seriously and immediately launched an investigation.

Two of the three female suspects, a 32-year-old female from Flin Flon and a 25-year-old female from Denare Beach, SK, has been arrested by RCMP for Uttering Threats and Public Incitement of Hatred. A third arrest is pending for the same charges. All three suspects are cooperating with police.

The RCMP cannot release the names of the two females arrested as the charges have not been sworn before a court of law. These names will become public record as soon as those charges have been sworn, which is a matter of police and court process. This process is taking place at this time.

The RCMP investigation continues.

On social media, the woman in Flin Flon apparently has lost her job over her postings. The business where she worked made the announcement on their company’s Facebook page.
