For the heinous crime of Shopping While #Barefaced in West Edmonton Mall, a young woman identified as Selena Paley was manhandled by two mall cop thugs while someone recorded the proceedings and streamed it live to Facebook.
The video linked above, two and a half minutes long, shows Ms. Paley being dragged through the mall and eventually pushed up against a wall, then dragged to the floor where 4 mall cop thugs piled on top of her as she screams “Somebody help me please! Somebody help me please!”
This highlights the problem we face as a society.
This young woman is assaulted by multiple uniformed thugs because she did not wear a mask.
Think about that.
Then ponder the fact the mask cannot, by the manufacturer’s own admission on the packaging, prevent COVID from passing through it.
The mask is useless to prevent infection or spread of COVID-19.
“We” live in society where The Rules are a higher moral authority than common decency and respect for another human being.
The Rules now trump our humanity.
The Rules are more important than people – even when the rules are utterly useless for their stated goal.
This is not about public health.
This about coercion and compliance with senseless and irrational edicts.
Worse, is the fact onlookers watched four grown men assault a 115lb woman and didn’t lift a finger to help her despite her desperate pleas for assistance.
Do these people not comprehend their silence is compliance with the atrocity they’re witnessing?
The only finger anyone was willing to lift was the one that hit “Record” on their smartphone.
Not a single soul was willing to assist this young woman.
I get it.
It’s scary to stand up to big burly men in uniforms, no matter how horrified we are by their actions.
Otherwise, how long will it be until some uniformed thug kills someone for not wearing a face mask?
You think I’m joking?
You think it can’t happen here?
A year and a half ago Mexican police beat Giovanni Lopez to death for not wearing a mask.
In April 2020, Police in Manilla shot a man dead for not wearing a face mask on the orders of Philippines President Duterte.
In June 2020 North Carolina police brutally beat Charles Redell Moody for not wearing a mask.
Do you still think it can’t happen here?
Watch all two and a half minutes of this video and explain to me how we’re not on the brink of mall cops killing a woman for not wearing a mask.
It just hasn’t happened here YET.
The 12-minute video below shows Selena Paley making a purchase at one of the stores before being accosted by numerous West Edmonton Mall security personnel.
Eventually they seize her cell phone and stuff it inside her jacket, but the audio matches that of the video linked above, which shows her being shoved up against a wall before being dragged to the ground.

It is beyond despicable!! We have become NAZI Germany of 1939, with the black uniformed thugs gleefully attacking innocent victims, under the guise of “I vas just following orders”! That is unacceptable and these “tough guy boors” should be arrested for assault, but we know that won’t happen, don’t we?! It is time that we FIGHT BACK, but that won’t likely happen either because too many people, living in Canada, are cowardly sheep, following the mob mentality. We have become a totalitarian police state, and we are sliding deeper and deeper down that rabbit hole!
Eric Verbeek says
I believe that someone will suffer serious injury or death, if it hasn’t happened already, for not wearing a mask in this country if this draconian ” BS ” doesn’t stop which I believe will not. I believe it is only going to get worse. I have only seen a couple of these types of assaults but how more have happened that we don’t know about? Will there ever be any retaliation to this sort of thing? It’s hard to say considering most Canadians are now ” programmed ” to these measures. But if it were to ever happen it will be ugly, real ugly. People can only put up for so long until there is a reaction to the action.
Albert Curtis says
There is a study, I believe currently in pre-publication (awaiting peer review, I think), a massive (really massive) study on the effectiveness of masks on the prevention of the spread of Covid-19.
How massive? How does 282,000 participants sound?
And the conclusion is pretty clear. Masks are NOT useless. The end result seems to be about a 2% difference between cohorts. So masks should properly be described as “Nearly Useless”.

Thanks for that, Albert! If/when you learn that study goes public please let me know. I’d love to read that.
Yes some are useless, it up to each individual to investigate what they are buying. The medical are the best masks

Perhaps those mall cops thought they were dealing with a very red-pilled Carrie-Anne Moss (Matrix’s Trinity).
But seriously … take your beating, don’t resist (that’s obstruction), don’t fight back (that’s assaulting a police officer), lick your wounds, get video evidence of excessive use of force/assault/attempted murder/murder, retain a lawyer, file your charges and … just maybe a fully corrupted court will hear your case sometime in the next 20 years.
Do people not see how this public grandstanding with excessive use of force is merely another tool in the totalitarian mindphuck toolbox?
You must obey or else this could be you. And please do share the video you are taking of this interaction with all of your social media contacts. It’s a great help to “the cause” for ensuring obedience.
It really is a deplorable state of humanity when none of the onlookers would come to the aid of this young women while she was being assaulted. Gotta get those likes, follows and re-tweets for their rock’em-sock’em video uploads.
When fear, obedience and self-gratification replaces our courage, our empathy, our humanity … then we are no longer human. We are then well-trained livestock. Silence is consent.
Do you not see how she is abusing her freedoms? Freedoms are not absolute and are definitely not free. #consequences
Chris: You laid it out well in this timeless essay. Keep up your most important work!
duh, she wasn’t arrested for shopping.
She was arrested for filming without the permission of the mall.
She also didn’t leave when she was trespassed for 24 hours.

I would have come back after a while and take out each one of them separatley,with the help of four good friends. Now lets see who is strong. If everybody will do that then the cowards will know better next time.
