The ugly downtown scene refers to this incident – Mob taunts police in confrontation caught on video
But wait there’s more…
“A disturbing incident also took place last week in relation to a number of our members during a community outreach initiative,” he said. “Officers from 31 division set up a command vehicle in the area of the Grassways, an Ontario Housing complex off of Jane St at Finch Ave.”
It’s a “densely populated area with a history of drugs and gun and gang violence” and “a command vehicle was set-up as part of a community outreach initiative, as there had been a shooting in the area a week prior.”
The “officers wanted to pro-actively engage with the community and reassure residents that they were safe, as well as welcome any tips on the previous shooting or crimes in general.”
What they got was something that shocked them.
