When an atrocity is in progress, some try to stop it. Others think only of ways to gain by inflicting it on their enemies. On Sunday Tamil protesters blocked highway 401 in Toronto. Several Tamil opponents have suggested siccing the children's aid society on them to confiscate their children. One from City News is below.
"Did the police act responsibly during the protest or should they have moved in to make arrests? Yes, the police acted very responsibly, although they were attacked and suffered injury and property damages. But they could have been more swift to remove the crowd from the highway.
"Did the protest change your mind about the situation in Sri Lanka? NOT AT ALL... it only made me understand how much is not known by most of the people here in Canada.
"What would you have done, given that small children were present? What should authorities do the next time? If it was up to me, first of all I would have the children taken away by the Children's Aid Society and the parents charged for endangering the lives of children. Taken firm action against every person carrying the terrorist flag which is banned in Canada. And this what I think the authorities should do the next time (and I am sure there will be more.)"
