Dafonte Miller, the Whitby man, who was violently assaulted by an off-duty Toronto police officer, says he doesn’t accept an apology from the force’s interim chief.
He said police “made the wrong decision” in not immediately notifying the province’s watchdog agency about the assault.
However, his apology came almost immediately after an independent review of former police chief Mark Saunders’ handing of the incident released their findings.
Miller and his lawyers say they had only minutes to read through the review before Ramer went public with it.
They called his apology a “public relations exercise.”
Miller’s counsel says the review concluded that Saunders was kept in the dark about the beating for five months after the actual crime had taken place.
