Video footage shared to Twitter appears to show police in the greater Toronto area detaining a black couple outside a hospital as one officer repeatedly punches the husband, who can be heard screaming "murder."
The video clip, filmed by an eyewitness to the October 2018 incident, was posted to Twitter on Monday morning by journalist Muhammad Lila. Security footage also shared by Lila shows that the couple, Livingston Jeffers and Pamelia Jeffers who were both in their late 60s when the incident took place, were detained by police after they left the hospital.
"This security video shows the full sequence of events. The couple had arrived at a hospital in Ajax because the grandmother wasn't feeling well," Lila reported, sharing a clip of footage from hospital security cameras. "Due to a long wait, they say they asked if they could leave, and were told yes. There was an argument as they were leaving."
The incident took place in the town of Ajax, which is located within the greater Toronto metropolitan area. The officers involved in the incident were from the Durham Regional Police Service.
A separate video taken by an eyewitness shows the woman screaming as officers grab her arms. Her husband is lying in the parking lot as another officer appears to punch him multiple times. The person filming objects to how the couple is being treated, saying the officer is assaulting the man. He is then told he is breaking "patient confidentiality" by filming.

There is normally a back story that isn’t reported. Although I’m sure it may happen rarely it wouldn’t be common for a couple of officers to say something along the lines of “OK, coffee break’s over, nothing much going on. Let’s go beat up that old man.”
Last I heard Canada is not part of the US.
WUT! Not in canaDUH!? What will justine tru-DOH have to say now after lecturing us?

This calls for an invasion.
Make sure its by common sense thinking conservatives, God only knows they could use a little common sense.
I want to know why the nurse followed them out of the hospital and she said something to them as couple people in the hospital turned and looked when she was saying something to the couple. There is more to the story here. I wondered if they picked up someone’s bag as they are struggling with cops and they keep trying to grab the white bag.
More going on then what we know.
I thought our Prime Minister was the only racist.
“Last I heard Canada is not part of the US.”
Thank you, LORD! They bug me enough, shopping here at Costco on Saturdays!
Well, here comes “BLM,eh”
So 65 plus a day (late 60s meaning at least half way through that decade) now qualifies for ‘elderly’?
RE: Last I heard Canada is not part of the US.
Yes, the purpose of the story is to show that police racism isn’t limited to the USA ( in order to EXPORT BLM and Antifa to other countries ).
Those dam* racist Hosers!
