Stop racial profiling
Stop racial profiling
William Dubois was dropped off at a public train line by his boss. As he was riding the train for 2 stops he was assaulted on public transit of Calgary Alberta. The assailants weren't your "typical trouble makers" these were supposed to be people of the law and who are supposed to be there to protect the citizens. Not give them lacerations to their heads and try to arrest them for failure to have any ID on them. Could you imagine an EMS hit you for not bringing out your IDs fast enough?
These "officers of peace" came off to William as "intimidating" instead of anything BUT "peaceful". During a pandemic not only did these "peace" officers not keep a distance of 2-5 meters, they immediately surrounded William in a successful attempt to invade his personal space. Resulting in William to be skeptical of their real intentions. William, as any one of us has, dealt with Peace Officers before. Although he has never had an encounter quite like this.
William has a degree in Communications a Major in English and minor in Religious Studies. He is not illiterate to the law. So when he heard the "peace" officers say " You're under arrest" he immediatly asked "Why?" They're answer baffled him. "For failure to produce ID" this didn't make any sense to Mr.William. He had just given them his name and birth date and all the proper information he would without respect to handing over a piece of ID. William hadn't committed any crime. He didn't have any arrest warrants. He was the true peacful man who takes care of his family and friends. These "peace" officers didn't respect his personal space. Or his personal belongings.
He fortunately escaped with a couple lacertaions to the head, a few scratches to the arm and stomach. It's as if he wasn't dealing with normal behaved grown adults but two scary animals. All injuries have been recorded for future courts of law.
At the end of the day William Dubois had his Bus pass and these officers had committed a crime. We cannot and will not stand for Our Citizens to feel helpless because we let a few bad eggs slip through the cracks.
