Dispatching Police Brutality to Quash Canada’s Peaceful Protest | Vincent Gircys

Vincent Gircys, retired from a 30-year career in policing in Canada joins us to discuss the direction Canada is taking, using law enforcement to carry out orders that are unlawful against peaceful protestors in Canada. Vincent was involved in creating and documenting the events at the Freedom Convoy in Ottawa, which we will see in the interview. Viewer Discretion is Advised. On the Use of Force in Ottawa…. When I see the video footage, when I see police interactions that I’m now seeing on a regular basis, and I had spent some time in Ottawa when the trucks had arrived, I showed up after they arrived, I wanted to see what was going on. When I saw what happened at the end, the way these peaceful protests were dismantled I was extremely concerned and alarmed for where we have come in policing over the last two years. I thought it was really important to take the footage of all the concerning video. A segment of that video in policing, we would see something like that maybe every five to 10 years, you might see something like that pop up that might make you sick when you saw it and you can understand how police officers would generally all be painted with the same brush when something as disturbing as that is seen. On the Violent Footage Recently Produced …. We’ve seen clips like this before, but folks…the concern I have is not only in policing, but in other government institutions, we’re supposed to have a system of checks and balances in our liberal democracy, and it appears that they are not working. That is the fundamental flaw and concern right now that these checks and balances are not working. These institutions albeit the law enforcement or justice systems that we have are something that we rely on heavily. And we’ve relied on these systems as the fundamental cornerstone of our civilization in the Western world. LINKS: Police4Freedom
