Guess we're different then. It was the first thing that jumped out at me.
I only commented on it after reading Hiwatt's post because he noticed something similar.
The thing is that what I pointed out was actually what happened in the video. It was a valid observation.

I think there is more here than meets the eye. I've looked at this video at least 2 dozen times now. The best version is provided with the Global News story.
In one of the other videos, the interview with the attorney made me want to take a shower. That's an ambulance chaser for sure. I'd be very interested to see more information about this guy. Something tells me this sleeze is probably a well known "personal injury" lawyer.
Actually in Canada it is really hard to make money from a personal injury claim. That is why you will find that in Canada we don't tend to sue as much. A person would have to really prove that they are substantially injured. The Gov't has caps on the amount of money that you can be awarded for injuries, so you don't generally hear about many people getting a lot of money from injury claims. To get any considerable amount you have to pretty much be paralyzed, lose a limb, be in a coma or have some other considerable damage. What the Canadian Gov't considers a "soft tissue injury" I believe is capped at somewhere between 2 and 5 thousand dollars. Hardly even worth taking to court. I would probably say the best this guy that got beat by the cops can hope for is , that the cops get fired. He on the other hand will still go to jail. The only time anyone makes good money is if they are wrongly convicted and spend a good part of their life in prison. Even then it usually isn't enough to make up for that lost time. We're Canadian , what can I say?

America is a violent sociey built upon the foundations of war and the worship of the firearm. Acts like this are par for the course for a people whose predisposition is closer to animal instinct than human civility, I'm afraid.
