Yes, CANADA! This man was arrested for ‘offending Islam’ by walking his dog in a public park where Muslims were holding an anti-Israel rally.
Blazing Cat Fur (H/T Susan K) Apparently, Muslims do not like dogs. I was warned by a few Muslim demonstrators not to go near them. Of course I ignored them and reminded them this is Canada, not Pakistan. Well, I was assaulted and returned the favor in kind.
At that point I was jumped by four COPS, dragged off and hand cuffed. Oh my, the police were so angry! They said I was, “insensitive” and “inciting a riot”. Thirty minutes later they cut me a big deal. No charges if I left. So I left.
Unbelievable that this could be happening in Canada. Walking a licensed dog on a leash in the park in front of our Provincial Legislature and being arrested for that simple act!”
NOTE: This is a therapy dog. Works at hospitals.
Apparently, you can also be arrested for waving an Israeli flag on your bike, when Mooselims are around.
