Toronto the Not in a Death Spiral

August 4th, 2011

If only she had blown bubbles in his face, maybe Toronto Police would consider it assault.

The details: I was at Yonge-Dundas Square … And I used my new Canon camera to take photos of this neon shrine.

Suddenly, a woman wearing a hijab ran toward me… She was screaming: “We are Muslim! You do not take pictures of us!”

I informed the lady I was in a public square in a democracy. I can actually take pictures of whomever I please.

And then: Ka-pow! Her fist collided with my face…

The cop walked back to me. No charges would be laid, he said, because he believed the woman’s story — namely, she was merely trying to knock the camera out of my hands.

Even if you accept the story of the attacker, she committed a crime.

The Toronto Police Service has become so bad at doing their job, it’s hard to imagine that Chief Bill Blair will not be a Cabinet Minister within the year.
