Markham off duty Cop beats,bullies,arrests 70 yr old School Crossing Gurad just for doing his Job.
This off-duty copy starts fighting him, when the guard stops him for making a rolling stop & then calls his uniformed buddies, to further harass & bully & arrest the poor old guard.
The cop clearly thinks he is above the law. What if he had run down the kids? The sad thing is, when his uniformed buddies show up, instead of seeing what's right or wrong, as usual they decide to support their own. The thin blue line is at work here.
If this is what he does, when he is off duty. You can only imagine, what he does when he is on duty! If we had gone through a STOP sign, this cop would have ticketed us, but he thinks he is ABOVE the law. Different rules & different standards for cops!

A 70-year-old Markham crossing guard was detained by an off-duty Toronto police officer and arrested on allegations of mischief by York Region police after a dispute turned ugly Tuesday morning.
Police were called to the scene of “two men fighting” on the roadway outside the school at 281 Williamson Rd. in Markham at about 8:10 a.m. Tuesday, York Region police Const. Laura Nicolle said.
Crossing guard Mohamed Hameed was working near Mount Joy Public School when his daughter Fathima Najamudeen said a nearby witness noticed a vehicle “doing a rolling stop.”
“The vehicle started moving, while children were going across on the other side of the street,” Najamudeen said, speaking for her father Wednesday morning, since he was recovering at his home after suffering a medical emergency the day before.
She said her father banged on the vehicle with his stop sign to get it to stop so it wouldn’t go forward.
“When children are crossing, he told me, ‘my focus is just on the children, my worry is that the children are going to get run over by the vehicle.’ And children had already started crossing on the other side of the street,” Najamudeen said her father told her.
She said she heard from her dad that the vehicle then started again and rolled through the intersection where it stopped on the other side.
A man got out on the passenger side and came over “and grabbed my dad and then held, him against his vehicle and wouldn’t let him go. He grabbed his wrist. He claimed he was a police officer. That’s what he told me,” said Najamudeen, who was at the scene by then.
The officer’s name has not been released.
This cop needs to be suspended & criminally charged & the old man's name needs to be cleared.
