“It’s an offense to beep your horn!” the officer says.

Video captured from Ottawa shows police harassing and assaulting an elderly Canadian for honking his horn.
The man recording the video captured two masked police officers harassing the old man while trying to ascertain his identity.
“What did he do wrong?” the man recording asked one officer.
“None of your fucking concern, man,” the officer replied.
The other officer can be heard asking the old man still in his vehicle where he was headed, to which the man recording yelled, “You don’t have to answer that!”
As the officer tried contending with the man recording, the elderly man, clearly upset, stepped out of his car and accused the officer of trying to take a “swing” at him after he “tooted his horn.”
“That is why you’re pulled over,” the officer told the old man.
The man recording had another theory: “It’s called communism,” he said, then told the old man he “didn’t do anything wrong.”
“I know I didn’t!” the old man responded.
“You have the right to beep your horn. Why are you doing this?” the man recording asked the officer.
“Because it’s an offense. It’s an offense to beep your horn,” the officer answered. “Tell me it’s not! I have it written down that it is. It’s actually an offense.”
Absurdly, that’s actually now true: a judge issued a 10-day injunction Monday banning truckers from honking theirs horns in downtown Ottawa.
“Because I tooted the horn, you’re pissed off!” the old man told the officer as he searched his wallet for his ID.
“That’s right!” the tyrant officer told him.
After the man recording told the “terrorist” officer to “stand down”, he immediately arrested the old man for “failing to ID.”
After a tense exchange with the first officer, the man recording then shamed the officers while they frogmarched the old man to their squad car.
“This is communism!” the man recording said.
