I’ve witnessed this myself, as long time readers know; cops at this infamous rally had been instructed beforehand not to arrest any Muslims at this event.
Ontario police receive bizarre instructions regarding other events, such as the G20 (and Caledonia), where their shifting priorities (based primarily on public relations, lawsuit avoidance and political correctness) result in baffling decisions.
Face facts: the police are union bureaucrats — with guns. So get your own and don’t count on them to help you out.
Of course, Tarek Fatah has experienced this troubling attitude, to his face. More than once.
In the “chilling” Jewish Trib story by Joanne Hill, police claim that when Fatah lodged his complaint, a Muslim officer just happened to be on the desk to take it. Pure coincidence. Sheer happenstance. What are the odds, eh? But guess what? Fatah was raising alarms about the infiltration two years ago. Back then he said:
“When a Muslim complains to Toronto police about death threats to a ‘good-looking Muslim’ (Fatah’s amusing way of describing Muslims such as Mansur and himself who embrace modernism and reject sharia as the basis for state jurisprudence), the police will dispatch two burly Muslim police officers. These gentlemen will warn the complainer to button it, lest he rile up restive Muslims. Should the complainer fail to comply, he, and not those lobbing the death threats, will face arrest.”
Doesn’t sound to me like Fatah’s recent experience was a coincidence or the luck (bad luck) of the draw. Sounds like siccing Muslim cops on “good-looking” Muslims is pretty much business as usual.
Question is: what are we prepared to do about it?
