Screams of terror by horrified onlookers with video cameras likely saved a man’s life from Barrie police officers. The officers that stood by or joined in are just as responsible as the out of control officer.
A 20 year old nearly lost his life after making a flippant remark to a police officer in Barrie, Ontario. The officer loses all self control and attempts to crack open the skull of the 20 year old like a coconut, by repeatedly smashing his restrained victim’s head into the concrete. More officers joined in the fun instead of protecting the unarmed restrained civilian from the out of control cop.
The officer did not need to respond to the remark. Responding with violence and trying to kill the man is an act of terrorism. This was a clear message from the police to the Public that they must show 100% respect and fear of the Barrie police or you may not survive.
Gary Grisdale, who identified himself in messages to CBC News as the man’s brother, said the incident happened after his brother “went through a red light on his longboard after looking both ways to make sure the coast was clear.” Grisdale declined to give his brother’s full name.
Grisdale said the officer ticketed his brother and detained him for about 30 minutes. Afterwards, his brother went back onto the road with his longboard and “lipped the officer off a bit,” he said. The officer “got furious,” Grisdale said, and that is when the video starts.
Until all Barrie police officers wear and use body cameras, and these officers are held to account, FTP considers the Barrie police and those that support them blindly to be terrorists.
