In your first post you said they didn't show badge or badge number and now after you went to 33 division they "know those officers". Did they just pull officers out of a hat and say yup those guys were officers. I'm really starting to think someone might have gotten a ticket and had to vent.

I'll be the first to agree there's bad cops and good cops but what your saying is amazing. Comparing this country to Nazi Germany? Are you being serious? Have you stepped into any other country in the world and seen how Police act / corruption there? I think we have not pretty good here in Canada.

In my 30 years of being a pretty big dickhead to Police iv never got my "face kicked in" now that I'm older, iv realized that I treat people with respect like I want to be treated.

I'm ending it here because like I said... 3 sides to every story.

I hear what you're saying and I understand your perspective - granted this isn't Somalia. I just totally got rubbed the wrong way by these guys. I was never expecting to be treated like that especially by a cop (every other cop I've come across has been extremely professional). If I had videotaped it, it would definitely have made the news and been investigated.. the reality of it is that when there aren't cameras around there are SOME cops that abuse their authority and it just so happened I was on the receiving end of it.

My takeaway from this is to start trying to be less aggressive - it's just not worth it.

Also - I didn't get any tickets or charges etc.

imho i would've still filed the complaint. as the other guy said you live in Canada and you are entitled to fair treatments, reading the beginning part I feel sorry for you and no one should be treated like that with cops, but find it a bit funny that you feel like you have less rights than someone else.

If you don't have video tapes look for other solutions. think back if you saw people on the road maybe hang around there see if you recognize them again and ask them if they saw what happened. it happened close to work right? well check the buildings around that area to see if they have any camera's facing the street that might have seen the incident.

but best thing for you to do is consult a lawyer. It doesn't cost you anything to speak with them if you feel your right have been violated.

or don't it's up to you. They can simply just keep doing it and eventually someone will complain right?

Take it from me who knows several Police Officers from different services very closely, the guys you dealt with are usually not liked by the "better Officers" and probably wouldn't care if they had a complaint against these guys.

Iv heard so many stories about Officers eventually "making" other bad Officers leave the platoon because they are disasters and just a liability.

All my buddies tell me the same thing... "it takes 10 good cops to make up for that one bad one"

Yeah - not a lotta people get that and think I'm a scumbag everytime I mention the fact that I'm brown... but shit - life's way tougher for us and skin color is extremely relevant to most of these situations.

I know some people will say that I'm full of shit or that brown people deserve it or what not but the reality is that there is definitely discrimination.

Please don't go there because you'll just get trashed. The "I'm brown" thing won't get you any sympathy.

I'm white, and these days, I'm the minority. Just look around you, colour has nothing to do with anything anymore.

You're either brought up right and taught to respective everyone;or, you're a douchebag of society and look down on people of different ethnicities.

You my friend, got disrespected by a group of bad cops. A group of douchebags.

People just need an excuse.

I got a ticket driving a bimmer. It's cause I'm brown.

I didn't get that job. It's cause I'm brown.

Bouncers didn't let me into the club. It's cause I'm brown.

goes on and on...
