Toronto Police Racially Profile Man, Lie in Court...AGAIN!

For the second time, a judged has concluded that Toronto Police have engaged in racial profiling and lying to Ontario Superior Court when dealing with Irshad Ahmed.

According to the Toronto Star and National Post, Superior Court Justice Frances Kiteley found police had lied in their explanation of why they pulled Mr. Ahmed over exactly one year ago to this day. The judge concluded in her decision, "I am compelled to draw the inference that Mr. Ahmed was investigated and arbitrarily detained because of his race."

Last year in a separate case, Superior Court Justice William Bassel found that officers lied and racially profiled Ahmed last year when used excessive force Tasering him.
