Kelowna RCMP Const. Siggy Pietrzak in the pig pen

Const. Siggy Pietrzak was placed on desk duty after footage of him repeatedly punching a man in downtown Kelowna emerged. Pietrzak's criminal and internal conduct investigations remain ongoing.
Tyler Russell was on the receiving end of at least 10 punches from Const. Siggy Pietrzak while he was held by two other cops. A notice of civil claim outlines six causes of action against Siggy 'Piggy' Pietrzak, the B.C. Minister of Justice and AG of Canada.
The cops say ... “During the arrest, the man actively resisted and allegedly turned combative toward the RCMP officers, who requested immediate backup.” It wasn't Pietrzak's first complaint and it was his sister who ratted him out. "My brother is the one that flew out of the vehicle and started throwing punches," she said in an email. "That’s who my brother is." The Kelowna RCMP had a long string of incidents in 2020.
