Unfortunately the bouncers of this establishment were compelled to restrain Mr Ferkranus after he assaulted someone on Talbot St. twenty minutes after the venue had closed his doors. Unfortunately in his struggle to get away, Mr Ferkranus suffered a heart attack…… This is extremely sad but neither the people who detained Mr Fekranus or the venue which employees them could have ever foreseen that eventuality occurring….. We wonder whether there isn't a cautionary tale in this for other men of Mr Ferkranus's age. We worry that there has been a rush to condemn as racist and brutal, both security people involved and the venue which employed them. This rush has missed a valuable opportunity to warn other people to the danger of something they may be doing in their own life which exposes them to a risk of their own risk of a very premature heart attack.

This is the Thorny Devil…… The surveillance video which this petition asks for was in fact provided to the local CTV news station and they played it on the evening news. The video clearly shows that we did not, as this petition asserts, force Mr Ferkranus into an alley. The video shows us intervening, long after closing, in a conflict between Mr Ferranus and another man out on the street. The conflict occurred long after we closed and seems to have had little to do with our business. Mr Ferkranus had knocked the other man unconscious before we got on the scene. Police have inspected a number of different video's, from different sources, closely and have determined that we detained Mr Ferkranus in textbook fashion. One guard holding each arm and leg. Mr Ferkranus struggled to free himself and had, we find out, a heart attack…… A good friend of Mr Ferkranus, who was also very involved in body building and fitness, also works for us. Some weeks later he collapsed at home and was rushed to hospital. Toxicology determined that the cocktail of drunks he was using to augmenting his work out routine with had stopped his heart…… If in fact this is the case with Mr Ferkranus it makes the outcome incredibly sad and tragic. We talk about it now in the hopes of providing a cautionary message to all the young guys out there doing anything to look bigger, buffer and more ripped…… Some people with their own agenda's may want to believe that we killed Mr Ferkranus. But they are actually doing both him and everyone else a disservice. If Mr Ferkranus inadvertently precipitated his own death he, given the change, would probably want to warn people not to do what he mistakenly did.

This is the Thorny Devil. The video referred to in this attached petition was palsied on the local CTV News station….. Which makes us very confused about what your point is.

“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Devil and Miss Prym

This was my family, a mutual friend to many who was taken away. Not revealing critical evidence like the surveillance video is suspicion to injustice & unlawful actions. This was a racial or ethnic prejudice which is very sad to result in a death & beyond revolting.
