The Toronto Star published articles continually that Mr. Jian Ghomeshi was a sexual predator, the Toronto Police Service (TPS) asked his victims to appear at 40 College Street, and file complains against him.  Several women appeared at the above police station, and filed complained against him. Consequently, the executive body brought him before the criminal judicial system.

At this very moment two women who accused him as a sexual predator, they told to the court that after fact they sent him bikini pictures, and they took measures to maintain their relationship with him. The question is, if these women were afraid of him, than why did they want to maintain their relationship with him? There is a question for the Toronto Police Service too. Did the TPS secure conviction against him? If someone walks to a police station, and complains against a person, would the TPS lay criminal charges against another person? Because according to the Constitution, if it applies to him, a citizen has a right to freedom of an arbitrary arrest.1 How does policing work in Canada? How can public educate themselves in area of police not to waste taxpayer money, and police time?

According to the Toronto Star, the TPS has a history of racial profiling. Is this another case of racial profiling?2 Maybe it is not a racial profiling. This is how policing works in Canada. Asking a question would not hurt anyone. Now, there are more questions to ask from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) that Canada’s Constitution indicates a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Was that practice here? Will the CBC apologize to him, if he will be acquitted of all charges? In addition, the Toronto Star launched a massive campaign against him, and depicted him as a sexual predator. Will this media outlet apologize to him, if he will be acquitted of all charges?

Still, there is a long way to go in this criminal trial, and it is interesting to observe how the out come of this trial will turn – out. Maybe he did something wrong.
