Evolo Condos in Montreal
A student was stopped on the highway to Chicoutimi, arrested on the way to his sister’s funeral so he could be charged in connection with student demonstrations.

They could have waited a day or two. Just for the sake of common decency.
It’s not clear from the article (or Google’s horrible translation of it) if he had been hiding and they picked him up on the way to the funeral because they knew he would be there. Either way, he is suspected of throwing bags of bricks on the tracks of the metro as well as pulling the emergency brakes. I’m fine with him being arrested regardless of where he was going.
True, I’m of two minds about this. You want to be a revolutionary? Suck it up. The cops used to catch bikers at biker funerals and nobody felt sorry for them. That I sympathise with the student movement doesn’t change the fact that there were criminal acts committed.
I’d have more sympathy for the situation if they were that efficient at stopping real crooks. It’s a coup de théâtre, nothing more. Look at us, we’re hard guys.
Catching real criminals is hard and potentially dangerous. Much better to shake up some snot-nosed punk students and get lots of overtime pay and media attention. Makes perfect sense… sorta.
Yes, I’m sure if someone wandered over from the Ritz in an Armani suit and tossed a bag of bricks on the metro tracks he would be totally ignored. Somehow, this huge anti-student conspiracy being perpetrated by the rich has managed to recruit the bluest of the blue collars, the Police.
I’m not sure what handbook you’re reading from, Bill, but the police have never been on the side of any union but their own.
@Ian @Bill We even let convicted killers out of prison to attend the funerals of their flesh and blood, so no, I cannot understand this. Sad…
That is a good point, actually…
