Video shows rough arrest in park

This Instagram video shows several bicycle police taking down a man in Jeanne-Mance park with extreme force. CultMTL says right-wing media are claiming the arrest was because the man was flouting lockdown measures, but the Gazette item says police have not spoken up yet on the incident, and CultMTL quotes a witness saying it apparently had nothing to do with breaking pandemic rules.

Update: More description from the CTV version.

Projet is willing to discuss disarming some police, but you can see in this video, if five guys dogpile on one, they don’t need to be armed.
