Send emails and letters to the government of canada.

I just cancelled a trip I was planning to canada, and explained why.

Well, that cop sure is an ass.

The video is edited though, it does not show exactly what she does to get arrested. It makes me wonder if the real reason is being hidden.

The point remains, I have dealt with plenty of cops who were assholes, but still, don't sit there and argue. Just move on.

That said, the women police officer didn't seem to even care, she even looked at this cop at one point with a look that says 'Really?'

If I was blowing bubbles and a cop started getting after me like that, I think I would be holding back some chuckles, I have to admit. The thought of a big guy like that, deciding that bubbles are a threat to his well being... Well... it's just funny...

Well, I know I won't get this comment starred, but...

She was blowing the bubbles right in their face. This is goofy, silly, dumb...

What would be the protest?... "I have the right to blow bubbles wherever I want"

This was antagonizing, purely for the sake of being antagonistic.

Whether or not it's right to arrest for bubble blowing LOL...it still
reminds me of childhood...when you've got your finger close to your
siblings eye, and your mom intervenes...."I'm not touching--I'm not touching"

ridiculous....

I starred you just because of the "I'm not touching you" line.

You are also correct in stating that blowing the bubbles directly at her was somewhat antagonizing.

Still the super cop should have been a little more polite.

S & F's to the OP.

The longer version of this video on YouTube is not loading. Perhaps we will never hear the rest of the story.

In the mean time I'll see if anyone has researched the long term effect of soap bubbles on cops' uniforms.

The long version wasn't about this incident. It just went on about how they were arresting people left and right for apparently no reason at all. It was really just a one sided take on things without going into detail about anything.

Not worth the watch at all if you wanted to find out what she was arrested for.

Based solely on the video in the OP, it looked to me like she was baiting them then trying to play all innocent...not nice. If I was the cop I would have done the same thing. What happened in the gap? Knowing That might have changed my opinion, but probably not.

Seriously? Is it a crime to "mouth off" in Canada? Or just maybe, he was itching to beat someone down and saw an easy victim. There was serious rage in his voice and it was totally unnecessary for the situation. I hope that guy is being mercilessly teased by his fellow cops w/ bubble cans left in his locker. I'm surprised she wasn't tasered to the heart b/c of his fear of the mighty bubble.

That was nothing but a bully w/ authority, aching to **** someone up.

No. Seriously. Who blows bubbles in a cop's face? Or anyone's face for that matter? Dumbass move.

i wanna' know what is missing.

From what I seen, the other officer, the female one, didn't give a #! She was even laughing. Even when that twat started spouting off, she looked like she was thinking "WTF man calm down". Her facial expression in the beginning was priceless. I laughed at this vid when I first seen it, and it was her facial expression that cracked me up. I was thinking "look at her... she doesn't give a #e while he rants on!"

Yeah, the part that was missing is key to why she was arrested. A few bubbles? I doubt it. Deliberately blowing bubbles into his face after that speech, sure, but it is highly suspicious why that chunk is missing though.

i noticed that, my impression was, she had no fear of this cop.

a bit of a size difference.
if she thought he was gunna' get down with the blond, he stance would have been much different.
she didn't see a threat of violence from either.

What a misleading title, and what happened in between the "moments later"?

Blowing bubbles won't get you arrested, but blowing bubbles into the face of police officers will. He warned her three or four times and what was her response?

"Giggle. My name is a mystery and I why can't I blow bubbles at you".

I've seen some pretty unfair and appalling acts of police brutality here on ATS but that was pretty stupid to be honest.

Does it need to be said that you can't walk up and start blowing bubbles into an officer of the laws' face? That you can't do that to a citizen either?

Aside from the fact that she was being extremely rude, and could have protested like everyone else in a calm manner, blowing a detergent into a strangers eyes can be seen as an assault. I'm against police brutality but I'm not jumping onto the wagon of every single case without a level of objectivity. This was a too provocative and she literally mocks the police.

This lady was living in a bubble all her own. She was out of line and is a bad representation of peaceful activists and protesters.

Drama.

He didn't beat her, and her "crime" wasn't mouthing off.

If she continued to blow bubbles into the officers face, detergent which could get into their eyes, she deserved to be arrested.

I guess with that heavy edit in between we'll never know what took place in those "moments later".

Sorry but I need more facts, not a manipulative edit you would find on FOX news that says it was "moments" later without information to describe those precious "moments".

Look at it this way...all that cheering support from her friends when she got put into the wagon...now she has something to brag about.

She's an oppressed heroine.

I just watched the vid again because I wanted to notice where she was standing and where the cops were standing. It appears she was lined up along with other people - by standers, photographers, etc. I think she was in the appropriate place. It certainly didn't look like she was approaching the cops but it did appear to me they approached her, they came in close. She held her ground as she had a right to, she may not have even had much room to back up even she she had wanted to. They had room to back up but didn't, they were trying to intimidate her. She was just a young lady standing there blowing harmless bubbles. She even gave the peace sign after they cuffed her and put in her in the van. This is very disturbing to see what they think they can and do get away with.

Peace

Blowing bubbles the way she did was an act of instigation and disrespect. She could have blown them in a different direction. She was deliberate in trying to create a scene.

Not only that but sometimes those bubble mixtures can stain clothing and also because they are wet could have messed up the officers radios or glasses.

Because blowing bubbles can also contain saliva, it can be as health endangering as spitting on someone. So yes, the officer was justified.

He first gave her the option of blowing her bubbles in another direction. Then he gave her fair warning of what he would do if she did not stop and if she touched him.

Clearly the girl was deliberately provoking the situation.

Well if you were blowing bubbles into the air away from me, I wouldn't say a word.

If you were blowing bubbles into the direction of my face or in a way that they will end up there and I told you to stop three or four times I may be inclined to do something about it. My wife may get pissed at me but still, that is a bit much.

Although I am not a violent person by nature...I really try not to be...at 6'5 and 245 lbs (and I am not talking fat) physically I believe I am bigger than that cop.

That said, I wouldn't blow bubbles in his face out of courtesy.
