Sadly not surprised... racism definitely isn't exclusive to the US, including the anti-immigrant kind.A little hometown pride for you from right here in London, Ontario. Saw this on Facebook last night with no city mentioned. Prayed it wasn't from here. I am disappoint.
A man prevents a dark skinned fellow from leaving a grocery store will calling him an illegal alien and saying he was calling the police. The man attempted to leave several times but was blocked. The dick in question said he was going to make a citizens arrest if the guy left. That, of course, would have been an invalid detention.
As it stands now this looks like forcible confinement to me worthy of charges for the dick in question. The victim opted not to press charges. To make a citizens arrest in this country you have to have reasonable reason to believe someone has just committed, or is about to commit, an indictable offence. Being brown is not sufficient reason.
The police are investigating thank god.
