Police Fatal Shooting Leads to Montreal Riot

Community leaders said many youngsters feel disenfranchised and are frustrated by what they see as heavy-handed police tactics. "What we are seeing are youngsters, a community that is in revolt because they don’t like they way they are being treated," said Pierreson Vaval, who leads a youth group. "They don’t like how authorities interact with them." The melee Sunday night was the second large-scale riot in Montreal in four months.
