Poor, misunderstood cop has suffered enough for beating someone

A Toronto police officer convicted of assaulting a protester during the G20 summit has been sentenced to 45 days in prison.

Const. Babak Andalib-Goortani was convicted in September of assault with a weapon for using excessive force during the arrest of a protester on June 26, 2010.


Andalib-Goortani’s lawyer, Harry Black, had asked for the officer to receive an absolute discharge.

Black said his client had suffered enough already, adding he has post-traumatic stress disorder, his psychological state is fragile and his marriage has fallen apart.
