Same Continent, Different Worlds


Here’s how this story ended in Canada:

“It’s just a kid who made some bad choices. Criminal charges aren’t in the best interest for that kid,” Van Winkel told Now News, adding that police don’t believe the teen made a conscious decision to fight with the officers.

And here’s how it would have ended in Harris County: “The juvenile is charged with criminal mischief, public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance, and two counts of felony assault on a peace officer.”

  1. Maybe, or it may have ended like this: The unarmed juvenile was shot six-times after the officer said he was in fear for his life when the kid reached for his waistband. Anyone with a waistband here in Harris county is a target that provides police officers with a tried and proven excuse to kill.

  2. Depending on the color of the kid. Black or Mexican kid is shot going for his waistband, white kid gets the shit beat out of him and charged with assault on a police officer.
