Default Police respond to dog-bite suit by releasing video of man battering bus



I seem to recall there was a thread about this a while back, just stumbled across this video that was later released by the police as part of their defense of the situation.

Anyone else recall this? I seem to recall someone here was actually related to the guy in some way, was wondering what they thought of the vid?

Ah yes, he's my cousin. I posted that clip in the shouty along with the thread I started containing the original news article and clip.

I'm glad that full security video is out there. The whole world can now see how much of a douche he is. He's never going to get out of that vicious cycle - he's recently gone back to dealing heroin and coke because he got fired from yet another job for showing up high as ****.

I think that most everyone here has family relation or at least knows someone that has a drug problem. Drugs are available on almost every street corner in every major city and most small town too.

In my time, I have seen so many good people fall to the control of some type of drug. Wheter it's crack, heroin, prescription drugs, alcohol, and the list just goes on and on. Alot of the people I used to know that were hooked on some type of drug (or drugs) are actually dead now and thats sad, especially if you knew them on a personal basis. I dont have the answer.

Yeah I think he started out with weed and pills (using and selling) when he was like 14 or 15 and it's all gone downhill from there. My grandmother enabled him for the longest time by sending him money orders, thinking that he'd do something positive with all that cash, but he always bought drugs before groceries, etc. My aunt stopped that real fast when she found out he was just using it as drug money.

Vancouver's Downtown Eastside is where he still lives - it's probably one of the most sketchy neighbourhoods in North America.

Is that the place where they're only slightly polite?

Yeah, I´ve heard that the men there don´t raise their hats when a lady walks by.

I´m afraid they don´t - unless they happen to be traveling with their mum or their auntie of course.

Your brother doesn't sound as bad as my cousin, but to be honest I think he might be catching up. My aunt and uncle (actually more my uncle and my grandmother) kept enabling him and supporting him for about 15 years after he started acting up like this. He just came to expect everything was going to be handed to him on a silver plate no matter how much deep doo-doo he got himself into - money, clothing, a roof over his head if he needed it, odd jobs, someone to bail him out of jail/pay legal fees, etc, and all the while he was thinking he could just keep floating along like he was, because he expected that safety net to catch him when he fell off the wagon.

Then they just cut off the financial support and forced him to figure things out for himself (yeah at like age 30). It's less stress on his siblings and parents.
