Preview Clip

Winnipeg police constable Robert Cross testified at that province's native Justice inquiry. He said his gun went off as he and native leader J.J. Harper struggled after Cross had stopped Harper early in the morning of April 9, 1988. (Cross was investigating a car theft. The Harper shooting was one of two incidents which led to the establishment of the inquiry into the way natives are treated by the Manitoba justice system. The other was the murder of Cree teenager Helen Betty Osborne, in The Pas, in 1971. It took 16 years to bring suspects to trial in that case.)
