May 28th - Montreal
A very powerful image taken during tonight’s protest where dozens of law practitioners participated in the nightly manifestations.
That cop’s smirk. I can’t even come up with words to describe it because I am completely baffled by its meaning.
Is he laughing because he feels like he is above the law and that this demonstration of support seems ridiculous to him?
Or is he, like I prefer thinking, failing to hold back a smile because he is one of the few who’s behind the movement but cannot speak up by fear of losing his job and he’s just rejoicing at the thought of having his fellow co-workers being publicly judged and outed for their unspeakable and unnecessary actions?
It’s a mystery but almost assuredly not the second stated possibility.
