Maudite Police

At about 1:10 of this video you can watch the good citizens of Montréal enthusiastically trashing a police car. A lot of pundits wondered why people would do such a thing. Well, maybe they should spend more time chasing down stories like this one :

A Concordia University student found out Saturday Montreal police, if they so choose, can hit you with a $628 ticket for nothing more menacing than sitting on a ledge.

Montreal police Sgt. Ian Lafrenière said Brendan Jones was told "several times" that he was sitting "somewhere else than on a park bench" and in so doing was guilty of an infraction.

"I found this to be absurd, since there were no benches around and there were many other people sitting around the square," Jones said.

Let's hope the Habs win the Stanley Cup.
