(FLIN FLON, MB) – 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, have 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 investigation continues.

What the RCMP are saying here, definitely lines up with these comments..
And below is the car in question..
A social activist, Mary Black had posted about the situation on her Facebook. She says she deleted the post because people were, well, read her words for yourself.
Black makes some very valid points here, and is known for her role in speaking up for the vulnerable people in the world.
No word yet on if anyone will be charged for threatening to kill the two women.
