Montrealer Films STM Cops & SPVM Team Up And Take Down A Group Of Teenagers

On March 22nd a member of ACAB Media recorded a very intense exchange between the STM metro po-po, the SPVM, and a group of Montreal citizens.

After a young man didn't pay his $3 fair, the STM quickly apprehended the perpetrator. Montreal's police force showed up too, because 6+ city officials need to be present to take down one lone metro rider.

A posse of people stuck around to document the incident... then things got very violent. Shit literally hits the fan around 3:40, where the STM and SPVM join forces to forcefully restrain and disperse the seemingly peaceful bystanders.

See the scene in the video below.

Did both the STM & SPVM go too far?
