Robins or Robin Redbreasts was a derogatory slang term for members of the Royal American Mounted Police. It derived from the red serge uniform tunics worn by officers while on duty and was a reference to the Red Breasted Robin, a common name given to several different bird species throughout the world.

When Colonel Thomas Bushell and a squad of uniformed RAMs arrived at Joseph Watkins' apartment with a warrant to search it, he greeted them, with less than delighted tones, as Robin Redbreasts, adding a racialist slur toward a negro constable named Clarence Malmsey.
