Toronto cops found guilty of assaulting disabled man

CANADA - Two Toronto police constables have been found guilty of assault of an elderly disabled man, whom they arrested on the night of April 24th, 2009 on the steps of his Gerrard St. East home in Cabbagetown.

Constables John Cruz and Edward Ing were stoic and made no comment on Justice Elliott Allen's verdict in court this morning. “His injuries are consistent with being struck constantly,” the judge said, referring to the victim, Richard Moore, who was 59 at the time of the attack.

The officers had testified that they arrested Moore for public drunkenness and were fearful for his safety, but hospital reports confirm that Moore had no trace of alcohol in his system. The judge said the officers had no grounds for the arrest. The charge of being drunk in a public place was quickly thrown out of court.

No date has been set for sentencing.

Basically two cops beat up and arrested an elderly disabled man, and then claimed the old man was drunk in public. Seriously, don't our police officers have something better to do? Like go after street gangs, the mafia or investigate murders / missing people reports?

Beating up old people is not part of the job description.
