He wasn't acting like a police officer, the Crown said.
The suspects allegedly committed four robberies in one night.

The reality is that in Toronto, as in most police services across the continent, the vast majority of serving police officers are exceptional public servants. The bad news is that reality is entirely irrelevant. People don't form judgments or base their decisions and actions on reality. They base them on their perceptions. And a fast-growing segment of society in Toronto, in Chicago, in New York City, in Ferguson, in cities and towns across North America, perceive their police services to be acting for their own benefit -- not society's.

A woman was on her way to pick up her son from school when two men attacked her while hurling racial slurs.
Which do you think is worse: police officers who don't know the law, or officers who know the law but deliberately ignore it or even mock it? That question has been on my mind since I saw the video made by Mike Miller, who observed two police officers making an arrest in broad daylight in a Toronto parking lot on September 14, 2015.
There's no word on the nationalities of the suspects.

Women of colour who have spoken most openly and fervently on behalf of their male family and community members are often at the forefront of the debate surrounding police misconduct. Yet, women have also been victimized by the police and often in precisely the same ways as men -- police stops, shootings and racial profiling.

TORONTO - Ontario's Liberal government will bring in regulations to standardize police street checks, a controversial tactic known in Toronto as carding, but advocates against the practice say that's...
George "Knia" Singh, who describes himself as a Toronto-born African-Canadian, said he's been carded by police multiple times and wants an end to the practice which involves routinely and randomly stopping people in the streets to obtain personal information.

I recently wrote an essay calling on the people of Toronto to end carding by refusing to share their personal information with the cops. They should meet any question from the cops with "Am I free to go?" The following elements should be used in any neighbourhood-based, grassroots led and organized anti-carding campaign. We must strive to win the active support of neighbourhood residents and people of good conscience across the city to not co-operate with the carding regime.
"I think that this project has the potential to strengthen the policing profession..."
In the absence of community support, members of our communities could end up in the prison industrial complex for asserting their right to remain silent and walk away from these non-criminal encounters. The cops are aware of the fact that the people can refuse to speak with them and are free to walk away, if they are not being detained or arrested.

Toronto's Polict Chief-designate Mark Saunders is on record as supporting carding as a "valuable tool." The policy is racist, wrong and reflects poorly on our collective public ideals. If he continues to endorse racial profiling, as a black citizen himself, his historic achievement would be in name only.

Toronto's police board has gone from refusal, to resistance, to resignation, to recognition of the problem, to partial resolution (the PACER report) and now, to retraction, recalcitrance and regression. What happened to the commitment to a fair and equitable society, to bias-free policing? The TPSB is set to vote this Thursday on a policy that is offensive and insidious. This new policy not only eliminates the requirement to issue receipts, but it takes us back even further than we were a few months ago. Is this the direction of an oversight body and a civilian boss that was once committed to diversity and fair treatment?
