A court in Canada is looking into charging a police force for “intimidating” crooks with a “scary photo” of tough guy actor Chuck Norris. This is the stupidity infesting the Canadian government, folks.
Catch this lunacy from the Montreal Gazette:
The plaintiff, whose research examines social movements and police profiling, believes police used the photo to intimidate protesters and, in doing so, diminished the public’s trust.
What pinheaded, university childishness is this, anyway?
But authorities in Quebec are actually seriously considering this garbage.
The Quebec City police department is being accused of having threatened demonstrators at last year’s G7 summit by placing a photo of heavily armed action movie star Chuck Norris on one of their vans.
Generation snowflake is not only infesting the United States, folks.
Professor Francis Dupuis-Déri, a menace to intelligent thinking everywhere, filed the complaint:
Montreal political-science professor Francis Dupuis-Déri on Wednesday filed a complaint with the Quebec police ethics board against nine police officers who were on duty during the protests in Quebec City last June.
The “professor” included a video of protesters being forced to see the Chuck Norris poster — featuring the actor holding not one but TWO guns in his hands — as they are loaded into a police van.
Oh, the humanities. Petulant, snowflakes being forced –FORCED, I tell you — to see a big photo of an actor as they are being arrested for destroying public property and creating a public menace.
How terrible for them.
Norris turned 78 on Sunday, so this is probably a great birthday present for him.
