Toronto man arrested at 'al-Quds day' demonstration may sue

A Toronto man, 47-year old Allan Einstoss, who was arrested for walking his dog, Cupcake, at an 'al-Quds day' demonstration in Toronto has threatened to sue (Hat Tip: Jack W).
Einstoss said after two young Muslim women asked about Cupcake, he was told by a male Al-Quds demonstrator he was “not allowed to go near our women” with the dog. Einstoss said that after exclaiming his right to go where he pleased, he walked away with Cupcake, but was “punched in the chest” by another demonstrator.

Einstoss shoved back, and within seconds was grabbed by several officers.

He claimed that while in custody, one officer called him “insensitive” for attending an Islamic rally with a dog.

Einstoss added his assailant wasn’t even questioned by police.

The officer allegedly threatened Einstoss with charges of incitement to riot and assault. After around 30 minutes, Einstoss was let go after agreeing to leave Queen’s Park.

Toronto Police Const. Victor Kwong insisted that while officers at the rally first noticed Einstoss because of his “large” dog, his arrest was because of the subsequent scuffle.

“Officers took notice of (Einstoss) because they did see an extremely large dog with an Israeli flag around its neck,” Kwong said.

He added that Einstoss was the only person arrested at the rally and refused to discuss specifics about the incident.

If he pursues legal action, Einstoss said he’ll seek a public inquiry into his arrest instead of money.
I think he should seek some money as well. If the city doesn't have to pay anything for this kind of behavior, they will continue to arrest people without cause and will continue to allow Muslims to terrorize the general population. Just like in Europe.

The politics involved are complex. I agree with Einstoss that money is probably not the way to go.

The big difference now in Canada is that there is a TV channel combined with newspapers (same company) that bring these sorts of things to light. Ther TV station has actual bloggers on regularly. All the "good stuff" gets an airing.
