     Anti-Racial Discrimination Committee Sues Toronto Police over Racial Profiling

November 21, 2013
0 COMMENTS
The Black Action Defence Committee launched a $65 million dollar lawsuit last Friday, alleging that the Toronto Police and thier service boards are guilty of racial profiling and practice of carding.     (Carding; when police question citizens and document their personal details, typically ending without any arrest or charge.)     The Committee claims police officers are indiscriminately profiling black youth, especially in their carding practice.     This act, the committee says, is contradicting the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.     In a special edition of ‘Grapevine with Fitzroy Gordon’ on G98.7FM last night, members of BADC voiced their thoughts on this on-going issue of Racial Profiling. Deputy Chief Sloly and Toronto Star reporter Jim Rankin who first broke the story, was present during the live broadcast.     A special Toronto Police Services Board meeting discussing this issue, was held this past Monday.     For the full interview, click below:   Source: TorontoStar.com, Grapevine Archives, Image: Russianweek.ca
