Moses Demian gets handcuffed by Toronto Police.

I didn’t do anything… I didn’t obstruct you… I was going to Bontea…

These were some of the words from Demian that can be heard in the video.

According to witnesses at the scene of Moses’ arrest, the police responded aggressively after Demian had some choice words for the officers such as “pig”. Demian added that “he (one of the officers) punched him in the face.”

A source close to Moses says he was caught at the scene due to a car meet, and that he had been dealing with personal issues, prior to the traumatic and viral encounter he had with Toronto Police.

It is unclear what the driving force was for Moses to take his own life, but sources close also say it may have been a collective factor of things.

Moses is remembered by his beloved mother, father and siblings. A GoFundMe has been established in his name, with the intent to pay for any costs related to his memorial.
