TTC Melee or the white guy waltz gets out of hand…

The vid is pretty bizarre… no idea what precipitated this it may have been a fare dispute.

    What’s with the flying elbow from the first cop on the older gent? I see a lot of diversity hires there in uniforms…I think some of them are TTC cops and I wouldn’t have got on the ground for one of those fuckers either!

    • It’s pretty bizarre no question.

      Whether they did anything wrong or not, when you get physical with a cop (regular or TTC) that is trying to arrest you, any harm that comes your way is self-inflicted. The second guy (first guys son?) is lucky to have teeth left after taking several swings at the guy from behind while he was tied up with the first guy.

    Damn white people. That is why we can’t have nice things.

    As a regular TTC rider I’m tempted to say that more of my fellow riders and the staff need a good shot to the head, but that guy throwing the haymakers is gone, possibly to jail.

    What impressed me more was that tall guy getting wholloped plus banging his head against the wall from the punch but is still able to stand up and speak coherently about the fares.

    I don’t often have sympathy for the cops, but If I was one of those guys I would have taken out my billy club and pounded on him. I assume that the two guys who are there at the start are TTC cops, only one of them has a club. I used to ride the TTC moderately regularly and even as a six foot plus two hundred pounds plus guy I would make a point of being aware of my surroundings.
    I am pretty sure that the only thing that happens to you if you get caught not paying your fare is a ticket. So this might not be fare dispute. It didn’t look like they were trying to serve the guy a ticket.
