She left her kids to get groceries. What happened next has her suing police for racial profiling and assault

Amanda Henry was out grocery shopping when she got a message on her phone from a Toronto police officer. Her children, the officer said, were in good health, but she needed to get back to her apartment right away.

In a panic and fearing that something was wrong, the single mother of five rushed home that day in October 2016 to find the police officer in her apartment with two of her daughters, then aged 11 and 9. The officer believed there was a law that children under 12 couldn’t be left alone, according to what he later told a police oversight body.
