Canada’s Denied Racism: George Floyd ‘Knee on the Neck’ and Bears Spray on Kids,

MSN: A video showing a Montreal police officer kneeling on the neck of a Black teen — nearly a year after the city called for a ban on the use of neck restraints — has sparked outrage and comparisons to the death of George Floyd.

The 14-year-old, who has not been publicly identified because he is a minor, does not appear to have been physically harmed by the encounter on June 10. But his mother told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. that he is now afraid to leave the house.

“Is it because my son is Black?” she asked. “It’s not because we’re Black that we have to experience those kind of things. We’re humans. Poor child.”

Filmed at a bus stop by a bystander who has remained anonymous, the roughly 90-second video began circulating on social media this week. It shows a police officer pinning the teen down by his neck as another officer searches the teen’s bag and pulls out what the officer says is a stun gun. The teen does not resist the officers, and appears to be handcuffed.
