'Any Negro will do': Police arrest criticized after ethics complaint rejected

The Police Ethics Committee has ruled that the use of force against a Montreal man who was wrestled to the ground outside a dépanneur in February was not unreasonable.

Errol Burke filed a complaint after police confused him with a stabbing suspect.

He left his apartment on Feb. 18 to buy milk at Dépanneur Bon Soleil on Décarie Boulevard, where he was tackled by police.
