Racism + police: two stories

Two incidents in crowded parks over the weekend are raising more questions about police response to visible minorities and their apparent willingness to punish people of colour while giving white people a pass.

Meanwhile, community groups are calling on the city to strengthen the police hate crimes unit, which currently has only 4 members. Since the pandemic, Asian Montrealers have faced a lot of bullshit, although I don’t know where the line is drawn that makes it criminal.
