Officers, Black Lives Matter demonstrators clash outside police headquarters

A peaceful protest outside Toronto police headquarters turned ugly last night after demonstrators clashed with officers.

The group was continuing to protest the SIU’s decision not to lay charges against the officer who killed 45-year-old Andrew Loku when the tense exchanges between officers and demonstrators took place.

Shouting and shoving could be seen outside the College Street building as police took down the protesters’ tents and extinguished a fire.

On social media Monday night, police said officers needed to remove the items from the area due to safety concerns and added the peaceful protest would be permitted to continue.

Black Lives Matter Toronto also took to Twitter Monday night, accusing the officers of attacking protesters.  (more...)
