Remember that Sopranos episode where Tony and his guys basically blame every misfortune, murder or general mess on non existent black men? Well, that’s what one Ontario Provincial Police officer did after he shot himself in the leg and was too embarrassed to ‘cop’ to it. He just decided to blame it on two imaginary black males.
The problem is, those words may have rolled off his tongue as a plausible way (in his head) to get himself out of trouble but it could have easily been my uncle or my cousins walking down the street and targeted by police on suspicion of shooting a police officer. And chances are, they may not have made it out alive from that incident. What a callous, indifferent idiot.
