A Toronto high school student has captured on video scenes of a cyclist being bashed by a car driver.
The amateur video is now on YouTube and has been given to the police. City TV reports that a Toronto police officer [on leave since 2004] has turned himself in and been charged with assault.
The student was in a group studying the use of surveillance cameras in downtown Toronto when the attack occurred.
We used to talk about “Kodak moments”. Now it’s more likely to be “YouTube moments”. Or opportunities for anyone to commit citizen journalism.
