On Tuesday evening, just before midnight, I was assaulted by a police officer. No warning, no explanation, just a swift swing of a nightstick to the back of my leg. The officer chasing after me threw me into a parked van. I am not a student, I don't wear a red square, and I am not on strike. This is Montreal under Bill 78.
