    Alberta… the Texas of Canada.

  2. Maybe they should all wear cameras and not be allowed to turn them off while on their shift.

    Is sensitivity training going to help this guy. 10 months to suspend him. Ridiculous.

    If a video hadn’t existed, the truth might never have come out.

  6. When High school bullies drop out and turn into cops.

      *So true*

    • They dont drop out, they are often having trophies on stands with plaques on walls, credentials in frames on display, and that’s what makes studying sociopaths so creepy even from a rural run down fixer upper sort’ve safe distance..

    • Earthlings testosterone is the problem (males inferiority complex resentment). – Send Women-Police-Officers to deal with ‘street-stuff’ and cops-violence will never occure anymore (solved issue). male-Cops aren’t really useful at anything in that domain (best reassign them to municipality garbage collection services).

    • Data JY LOL

    Psychopaths in costumes. Take their badges away.

  8. Disgusting behaviour. Cops need to be fired and do some serious jail time.

  9. I can’t stand the police I’ve seen enough of their disgusting behavior

  10. That happens. I was 13 and tiny and without provocation, when i heard a running sound getting louder behind me as i stood still with a sore leg from a 10 day old leg surgery previously released from sick kids hospital in toronto, then i saw stars..clubbed and kicked, and the 5 of them all got away with it. The meanest sociopath in the bunch of em tried to get me to sign a false statement. If i wasnt so afraid at the time, i would’ve lawyered up, my neighbors friends and family saw the scars after what happened in east york’s 55 division area.

    • Everyone i know from age 13 would say it happened, though my sociopathic right wing older brother who broke my nose at 17 and repeatedly punched me in the face at age 7 while in my bedroom as he kept whispering shut up to me at the same time, he’d probably say that he doesnt remember 5 cops clubbing and kicking me at age 13, and he would say that he wasn’t ripping me off for more than half my parkinsons/ms painful variant disability pension income for years until i moved 4 hours away from toronto to a rural rundown fixer upper. Times change eh.

    Disgusting officers, criminals with a badge.

    No pork shortage in Edmonton.

  13. Can we see what happened before they ended up on the ground???

    That’s just sad…

  15. Maybe Mr Singh needs to have a breathalyzer test before entering parliament? Just saying. See Atlanta video showing Mr Brooks failing breathalyzer, refusing to lie down after being injected with 50000 volts right before police officer, as police is trailing Mr Brooks, exchanges taser from right to left hand proceeds to unholster sidearm (as he’s running mind you) and fire at Mr Brooks before Mr Brooks shot Police officer.

    I wonder what happened before, always with the half way through.

    Being an officer shouldn’t exempt one from the rule of law.

    Shamful ! Unprofessional, fire them ! No qualified immunity. 🧻

    Both cops should be charged. Why just 1.

    We are in a new world now…. – where cameras act as credible witnesses and police can now no longer ‘get away’ with their abuses and crimes!
