           In Montreal, a police officer shot Marcelus Francoi s
     in the head while he was sitting in his car . He died on
     the spot. The officer was white, Francois was black . Th e
     officer mistook Francois for an attempted-murder sus -

     on bail because a judge did not consider him "dangerou s
     to society."
           The mistaken shooting provoked 800 people fro m
     Montreal 's Black community to protest on July 26 .                                                           The Ubyssey welcomes letters on any Issue . Letters must be typed and are not to exceed 300 words in length . Content
