Judge censors Toronto police officer for brutality

Although seldom talked about, Toronto Police practice of carding is considered abusive mostly by the black community and, sadly, considered justify mainly by people in the white majority.

The policy has resulted in a “crisis of distrust” and it is based on no evidence and racial profiling.
