Happy Canada Day you son of a bitch. You GD Son of a Bitch.
I don't often get moved to swear but after watching this video I am so angry. I had seen this horrible assault from a distance but witnessing it up close I am sick to my stomach. These people were unarmed but treated like caged animals. You can see that they are completely surrounded and not allowed to leave.
Some get on their cell phones and call 911 only to be charged and beaten.
IS THIS YOUR CANADA????
WHERE IS STEPHEN HARPER?
WHERE IS GUY GIORNO?
THEY CAUSED THIS AND ARE WALKING AWAY. MAY THEY ROT IN HELL!!!!
I am especially angry after reading that the police surveillance tapes had the Black Bloc in plain view but were told hands off. Stephen "the most vile creature on earth" Harper, needed to try to justify his one billion dollar price tag, so he let the vandals run amok while he had cops beat up those who oppose his fascist regime.
And inside, while lounging around "fake lake", reporters were treated to a split screen. One side with Harper's fat head, and the other the madness that the police, were trained to stop, but instead were told to stand down and attack peaceful protesters.
If you are not as mad as I am right now, then you are not Canadian. I'm sorry. But this is horrible.
Who made the decision for police to stand down despite the fact the city was under attack? And why? Was it a police decision or political? These should be the cornerstone questions of an external review surrounding the chaos of the G20. After all, police officers were trained to stop the Black Bloc anarchists, were appropriately equipped and massively manned.
As downtown Toronto witnessed burning police cars and a small group of thugs on a rampage, a police source tells me the only thing that stopped the officers from
doing that was an order telling them not to. They tell me they could have rounded up all, or most of them, in no time. I have had several front line police officers tell me they were told not to get involved. But even before that decision was made, says one insider, there was mass confusion and indecision.
"The orders went from engage to, no, don't engage to engage to, no, don't engage,' " said an officer. "It was an absolute shambles. Everyone was talking over each other on the radio. Nobody seemed to know what to do. It was just a mess."
