Yet another video involving Montreal police is surfacing, this one showing an officer striking a young man in fast food restaurant.
This follows a video in which another policeman is shown threatening to tie an underdressed homeless man to a lamp post for an hour on one of the coldest days of the year.
The incident in the video is believed to have taken place on December 23rd in an unknown fast food restaurant.
The video shows a female manager yelling at a group of young men as a group of police officers enter.
The officers grab the men, push them towards the door and a cop then punches one of the men in the face.
Dan Philip of the Black Coalition of Quebec saw the video and says this is yet another example of police abusing their power.
As a long-time activist denouncing perceived police abuse, he thinks the Montreal force operates under a culture of impunity.
"When people officers can violate people's rights without any sanction, they don't care what happens because they know nothing will be done against them," he says.
Montreal police did not respond to an interview request.
