Video Showing Police Brutality At Montreal's Saint-Laurent Metro Station

We've all been there are at least once. You're about to get in the metro only to realize you misplaced your OPUS card.

Now if you're lucky, you didn't forget your entire wallet and you can just buy a ticket, otherwise I'm sure you've at least thought about jumping over the turnstile.

Hell, I think about it even when I have OPUS card, just to see if I could get away with it.

But what would happen if you get caught? Will you get a slap on the wrist, a fine or can they actually arrest you?

Well it turns out that it's far worse than you imagine.

Marc Gauthier posted 3 videos on Facebook after his friend was caught hopping over a metro turnstile. Unfortunately for him, STM security was standing nearby. The cops were called in and the situation escalated pretty quickly.

The cops seemed to act more like thugs than cops, you can even see them violently shoving some innocent bystanders.
