Pepper-sprayed while handcuffed: Judge describes Toronto arrest as ‘obvious police brutality’

  Pepper-sprayed while handcuffed: Judge describes Toronto arrest as ‘obvious police brutality’ Bleeding from two lacerations in his cheek, Tyrone Hines was sitting in the back of a Toronto police cruiser, handcuffed, when the officer who had just struck him in the face with his baton pulled out his pepper spray. What happens next in the “disturbing” video captured on Toronto police in-car camera left no doubt in Ontario Court Justice Richard Blouin’s mind that Const. Matthew Brewer used excessive force against Hines. Calling the officer’s claim that he pepper-sprayed Hines to stop him from escaping “demonstrably false,” Blouin said the video showed clear “police brutality” — though Brewer and a fellow officer nonetheless attempted to defend it.
