It's true. It happened a couple of days ago. This still goes on, and that's why ALL pigs are scum.

Native man alleges Winnipeg police threatened him, took him to outskirts
WINNIPEG - A 20-year-old man is alleging he was taken to the outskirts of Winnipeg by city police, threatened with a Taser and then mocked as they made him run away.
Evan Maud tells the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network that the experience was terrifying.
Winnipeg police officials could not be reached for comment and did not respond to emails asking about the allegation.
Maud, who is finishing Grade 12, says he had left his brother's house in Winnipeg at 4 a.m. last Friday when an unmarked black police car pulled up beside him on the street.
Maud says the officers accused him of being drunk and having a record for break and enters and stealing cars.
Maud admits he'd had a couple of drinks but says he doesn't have a criminal record.
He alleges the officers pushed him into the car and drove to the outskirts.
He alleges they took his winter coat and sweater, gave him another sweater to wear instead and told him to run or they would zap him with a Taser.
As he ran, he alleges they followed along, taunting him and making fun of how he ran.
He says the experience left him so scared and shaken he would now never walk alone at night.
"I didn't know what to think. I didn't know what to do," says Maud. "What if they did something to me, like take my shoes and my pants and leave me with my shorts?
"I just don't want this to happen to anyone else. You've got to walk with at least two or three people."
His mother, Betty Maud, has flown from Saskatoon to be with her son.
"I'm hurt, I'm angry," she says.
Maud's uncle, Joseph Maud, is a councillor on the Skownan First Nation in northern Manitoba. He says he's meeting with the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs to discuss the incident, adding he'd like to see the establishment of some type of call centre that could help aboriginal people out in such situations.
