Warning, the video contains graphic language.
A Durham Region police officer threatened to beat up a man and plant cocaine on him during a one-sided, expletive-filled confrontation, a graphic video shows.
“I hurt people . . . and then I make their cocaine f—ing appear,” the armed constable barks into the face of the burly, young man. “You see how I work. . . . See what I do.”
The 8½-minute video, which appeared recently on YouTube, also features the constable appearing to provoke the bald man into hitting him during the sometimes tense grilling beside a house in Oshawa in late 2011.
