“Encouraged by hundreds of e-mails (from Texas to Tehran), I’ve decided not to let the matter rest. You may recall my column last month regarding an assault that took place at Yonge-Dundas Square”.
“I was there on a Sunday evening with my nine-year-old son, testing my new camera. Suddenly, an hysterical hijab-clad woman confronted me.
“We are Muslim!” she screamed. “You do not take pictures of us!” When I refused to holster my camera, she slugged me in the face. (Still images of the assault were caught on my camera.) My son and I were then surrounded by a mob, some speaking Arabic.
One individual kept demanding my camera. If I complied, he’d “let” us go”.
The moral of this story: The police are not your friends. They are not there to protect your peace. They are there to protect their peace. Their peace is whatever politically correct whimsy the cowards above them care to dictate. You have been robbed of your legal rights, the rule of law no longer applies, at least not to you. Remember Caledonia, now remember Bill Blair.
