TTC bust-up video: Dad thrown around ‘like a rag doll’

TORONTO – Jamie Gillman says Wednesday would have been the worst day of his life if not for Jan. 29, when he was pummelled by a TTC transit enforcement officer at Union Station.

“They were both the worst,” the 33-year-old told the Toronto Sun in an exclusive interview from his Toronto home. “I would say they were like 1A and 1B.”

    They were bums. The old crock was resisting arrest. Remember the billy club of years gone by? That was the solution, for resisting. Then the bluehair’s punk kid cold-cocked the other cop, from behind, the apple never falls far from the tree….and imagine, that old c**t on CFRB last night was whining about how terrible it was that people recorded such incidents on phones, cams, etc…a Jamaican guy trashed her stupid reasoning…

    See, cops don’t only punch black guys.

    Once you are under arrest, you have to do as you are told. If the cops are wrong, sue them later.

    The CBC report I watched of this last night was crazy as far as trying to stir up further troubles from this. They showed the second officer throwing a punch, then jumped the video and the annoncer in a voice-over said “..and here we see 30 seconds later the same officer striking the passenger again..” showing the haymakers he was throwing. Really, they saved about 20 seconds of air time with the edit, but that cut out all the reasons the officer was reacting the way he did.
    I am not exactly siding with the officers on this one, but the one sided coverage, including this sob story puff piece, really needs to stop.
