Yesterday afternoon after a photo shoot I had in Kensington Market.
I was walking back to Baldwin St. & I came across loud cries coming from an alleyway "Stop, I'm not resisting" the voice yells. I hear glass bottles breaking and literally what seems to be some sort of fight going on Behind the locked gate... the first image in this album.
I looked through the hole to see what was going on. When I looked I saw one officer just walking right out of frame. A few seconds later the shop owner that had the key to the gate came and opened it for me as if she was telling me to go ahead and take photos of what I see.
So I open the gate and walk through and I see Officers stoping on this mans head, punching him in his balls & stepping on his head....
As I was taking photos an officer that was just standing watching while this man gets his ass stomped out notices me & tells me to move to the streets. Then the other PIGS saw me & stopped....
I think I may have saved this mans live. No matter what he did he should not be treated like that.
