A person of color living with disabilities has filed complaints against two police officers for a violent arrest without cause.

According to Pradel Content, 39, police in Laval, Quebec deleted his cell phone footage of him being violently handcuffed despite his pleas of being disabled.

In the official police report of the incident, Constable Michael Boutin confirmed that police erased video from the victim’s phone, potentially erasing evidence of misconduct.

“A disabled, black, English-speaking man has laid complaints against two Laval police officers for violently arresting him without cause and erasing a video of the incident from his cell phone,” the Montreal Gazette reported.

“I want my life back,” the victim, said at a news conference Saturday. “Let me live.”

The Centre for Research-Action on Race Relations (CRARR) “filed complaints on Content’s behalf with Quebec’s Police Ethics Commission and Human Rights and Youth Rights Commission in connection with the incident, alleging the officers used excessive force to arrest him and erased footage of the incident, which is illegal.”

Fo Niemi, executive director of CRARR, explained that while police deleted the victim’s evidence of the encounter, there was additional surveillance video which confirmed the victim’s version of events.

The victim had to “be handcuffed and placed in the police car. He cries constantly that he is handicapped,” the police report stated.

One has already lost its contract for lack of performance; it’s unclear if the other two can fulfill their orders on time, or at all.
