A couple of RCMP officers stopped at Sandy Bay First Nation and talked to an old Indian standing on the road.
He told the old Indian, “I need to inspect this land for illegally grown drugs.”
The elder reluctantly said, “okay, but don’t go into that field over there…”, as he pointed with his lips to the location.
The RCMP officer verbally exploded & said, “look mister, I have the authority of the federal government with me!”
Reaching into his rear back pocket, the arrogant officer removed his badge & proudly displayed it to the old Indian.
“See this fucking badge?! This badge means I can go wherever I want, whenever I want…………….on any land! No questions asked, no answers given! Do you understand old man?”
The elder nodded kindly, apologized & went about his business. Moments later he heard loud - fearful screams; he looked up & saw the RCMP officer running for his life, being chased by a Bull Bison. With every step the Bull Bison was gaining ground on the officer & it was likely that he’d sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified.
The old Indian threw down his tools & ran as fast as he could to the fence & yelled at the top of his lungs……”YOU’RE BADGE! SHOW HIM YOU’RE FUCKING BADGE!” —
