To anyone who says that crime in Winnipeg is down or dropping, Look closely at this man, who was attacked and bear-sprayed on Selkirk Avenue Thursday morning.

Think he’d believe you?

H/T to the Parking Authority agent who called it in and tried to help the guy. As well to Shaun McLeod who got to the scene quickly.

Nobody, don’t care who you are, deserves this.

One thought on “The reality

  1. No-one deserves it, but we should also be careful not to slip into demagoguery — perhaps this should be better addressed to those who minimize the personal impact of violent crime when it doesn’t impact the wealthy, since that’s what this photo speaks to… not statistical crime rates.
