VIDEO: SIU Says Officers Won't be Charged in Arrest of Toronto Protester
The Special Investigation's Unit has concluded there are no reasonable grounds to charge a Toronto Police officer with any criminal offence after a Transgendered woman was bloodied while being arrested at teh rotunda just south of the University courthouse.
The SIU report says 37-year-old Angela Turvey took a few swings at the officers when they tried to arrest her after she was protesting the arrest of an Occupy Toronto Protester.
That's when she was punched and hauled to the ground suffering a nose fracture and a cut above the eye.
The SIU director says her refusal to back away, and then resisting arrest, meant the officer had the lawful authority to make that arrest.
