WARMINGTON: Peel police probing OPP interaction with boy in wake of video


You know the wheels are coming off lockdown enforcement when the police are targeting a “12-year-old” potential violator in a skateboard park. And a free society is skating on thin ice when videos show up appearing to show a kid being pushed to the ground by a police officer. What occurred in Gravenhurst is exactly what people were afraid would happen when the province brought in new guidelines to give police power to randomly stop people during the Ontario-wide stay-at-home order. Since those powers were backed off on, and most police services indicated they had no interest in enforcing them, no one dreamed something as ugly as this appears would still happen.
