The TTC is promising it will have more to say Wednesday about a startling video which shows TTC special constables punching people in a subway station.
A roughly six-minute video of the incident was making the rounds online on Tuesday.

“The altercation involving TTC officers is extremely serious,” TTC spokesman Brad Ross told the Toronto Sun late Tuesday. “The video is being reviewed now. We will have more to say in the morning.”
Near the beginning of the video, a man can be seen quickly striking one of the special constables several times on the back with his fist. Later, after some scuffling, a special constable is seen on top of a man on the ground. When the man tries to move, the special constable is seen punching him in the side.
Another special constable then is shown punching another man in the face several times.
“What the f— is going on here?” the man who got punched in the face asks. “I pay my fare, I didn’t do anything.”
