A video showing four officers piling onto a Toronto man in a cellblock assault — which had been kept secret — is now public.
When Justice Donna Hackett found four Toronto police officers “lied, exaggerated and colluded” to cover up the January 2012 assault against Curtis Young, she said two videos were crucial to sifting out the truth.
“If there had not been a video to contradict all of their notes, the consistency in their evidence could have been accepted at trial, Mr. Young convicted, and justice totally frustrated,” the judge wrote in her March 17 decision. (All charges against Young were later dismissed.)
