Some Ottawa cops are selling bracelets that support an officer charged in the death of an unarmed black man.
The bracelets read "United we stand" on the outside and include Montsion's badge number, 1998.
Members of the Ottawa Somali community who have been pushing for justice in Abdi's case say they're outraged by the bracelets.
Ottawa police have come under scrutiny for a number of issues, including the use of reinforced "assault gloves" like the kind worn by Montsion during Abdi's arrest.
