The Toronto Police are getting more bad press. Ever since Toronto Police publicly admitted to failing to enforce road safety in the city of Toronto, citing budget restraints, road traffic accidents have doubled and it is now a leading city for road traffic fatalities. We often catch these police officers sleeping on the job, and handing out armbands as they blame pedestrians for being hit. Under the current Mayor John Tory, traffic accidents and deaths from car accidents have grown each year.
These pictures show armed cops looking for runners and cyclists exceeding 12 MPH (20KM/h) on designated bike lanes in a Toronto park.
Later in the day, they were seen ticketing cyclists on bike lanes for not fully stopping at stop signs.
Because the cyclists of Toronto has been riding and advocating to defund the Police.
This is their response.
Next level petty if you ask me.

Just the other day the Toronto Police sent out armed cops to radar cyclists (even after being heavily criticized all year for not ticketing dangerous drivers) and they think *this* helps to justify their budget? #topoli https://t.co/Puk02F2qa5

It's so embarrassing. Toronto Police have enough issues (much more serious issues) to deal with, they don't need to add this nonsense on top of it. In a city that already treats cyclists like the enemy, this is beyond ridiculous.

Cannot even fathom how insulting it is that the police department which intentionally stopped enforcing traffic laws in downtown Toronto is now making a big show of speed checking cyclists. https://t.co/IC6a9wjfwy

Let me get this straight… we can't cut the police budget and give more resources to communities in need, but we can let police waste taxpayers money by giving tickets to cyclists?!? Seriously @JohnTory? #Toronto #topoli #BikeTO https://t.co/1K32EIMmS4

The police in Toronto are FINALLY getting their priorities straight
We can't continue to let cyclists riding alone in empty parks continue to wreak havoc upon this city

People from Toronto are known for taking an aggressive and malicious stance towards cyclists. Sadly is not a pleasant city to visit if you don’t have car to get around in.
Cyclists are reckless and dangerous.
