Montreal man says he got ticket for “walking while black” but maybe he was just a jerk 

An acquaintance of mine recently got a jaywalking ticket in the Plateau. He was rushing to work and he crossed against a light. There were cops there to greet him on the other side. One emerged from behind a bus stop and the other from behind a tree. It was a sting!

One of the cops explained that a woman had been hit on that very intersection recently. He went on to say that this is common practice for Montreal after there is a fatal accident on a street. It’s the police’s way of trying to get across the message of pedestrian safety to the public.
