WATCH AT 0:45.....all the plainclothes people running in that pack, and being let behind the line, are cops--including the black-clad 'anarchist' !!!! BTW, watch out for the old white-bearded flannel shirt cop and the famous 'scary lady' cop

1. Very clearly saw a black clad anarchist run behind those lines
The thing is, the police will simply say it's an undercover, somebody there to keep an eye on the protest to make sure things don't get out of hand, yadda yadda. Bottom line, agent provocateurs need to be caught in the act of destroying property or in the process of attempting to destroy property to prove that it's an agent provocateur.

2. Dude, that lady IS scarier than most men. As to the rest of it...
...I'd like to see a video with the particular guy you're talking about highlighted. Was the old white-bearded guy a cop? Does he appear later? It didn't appear that he could catch up with the group running that dude behind the police lines.

If you have...annotated videos, point them out. It's interesting stuff, and obviously alarming.

4. I was at the RNC in St. Paul, I never had a moment's doubt
that what happened at the G20 was also caused by the police. That's what ALWAYS happens - they dress like protesters and do something to provoke the rest of the police so they can have an excuse to use all the new toys/weapons they've just obtained on everyone else.

8. did you hear Naomi Klein on DN this morning? she had some very interesting things to say about the
$1.2 billion security price tag and all the pretty toys the cops bought. as she pointed out, they bought water cannons, but didn't even bother putting out the fire in the burning police car? they basically watched everything happen and did nothing until much later.

my first thought when I heard about the destruction was "agents provocateurs"

11. I watched this three times, one stopping and starting along the way
and I do not understand what is going on. I was in Paris in 1968 and smelled tear gas in the metro stations, but that is the closest I have every been to this sort of thing. That is so chaotic. The only thing I understand is that the police seem to really be enjoying what they are doing. It seemed like they thought they were playing a sport or a game. Their adrenalin was so high. They were so charged up. Were they actually in danger or just psyching themselves scared? What was going on?

14. They were in lowest common denominater mode, like they often are...
..and which causes them to treat everyone like a potential threat and over protect themselves.

The provocateurs were trying to make it appear that they were being threatened, while in fact, they were not.

21. Canadian COINTELPRO forces
Disgusting, but no real surprise. Police always feel themselves justified no matter how they lie or abuse; that's why they become cops in the first place.

22. Hermann Goring would be so proud to see his policies were being
enacted so joyously in this, our age. We are moving inexorably toward fascism. Only an insurmountably large and loud rejection by a coordinated people, acting together, can it be stopped.

24. Grabbed frames show this







This guy is wearing all black and hooded, and the police let him by no problem.

They have been caught before in Montreal a few years ago, now this.

And the news media continues to not cover this, instead buying into the police provocateurs staged "riot" and tarnishing all protesters of the G20 with these assholes tactics.

26. Well at least - - -
Many of the anarchists and paranoid conspiracy theorists seem to be coralled at this particular site. The more they gravitate towards this location to spew out their drivel the less chance we have of encountering them at other sites. Like "If you don't want to be bothered by flies just take a crap in the furthest corner of the room". The kind of comments here are mostly a continuance of the anarchist propoganda which supported the violence and property damage over the weekend and are to be expected and they'll come up with any kind of far out theory they can to try and support their actions. G20 Police in Black Bloc Anarchist Gear, MY ASS! Their sociopathic behaviour is the kind of thing that makes the average law abiding citizen want to take extreme measures when encountering them and the sooner they are eliminated the better. While some of their arguments might make sense their actions are no different than than those they oppose,both types are thugs.

33. By "this particular site" do you mean DU?
And when it comes to sociopathic behavior I'm curious what you mean by "taking extreme measures" and "eliminating" people? Your comment doesn't seem like one from a liberal minded left leaning person. As far as agent provocateurs go it is an undisputed fact that Canada was caught using them recently. That conspiracy is no longer a theory. Welcome to DU and I hope your stays a short one.

36. One of the tests of intellect is the ability to make distinctions all by yourself.
You may just gain that ability if you manage to stick around and do a little studying here.

The most glaring distinction you missed is that every single person taking a threatening posture in that video was allowed right past the police line without so much as a raised eyebrow..

Now, one needn't be the sharpest bulb on the chandelier to recognize that for the police to not only 'tolerate' threatening persons, but to usher them through their line unmolested is EXACTLY the opposite behavior the anti-riot training manual prescribes.

Now, my question to you is; "Did you simply miss that part of the video, or did you deliberately ignore it so we could laugh at you?"

I'll hold my guffaws per your answer... or lack thereof.

38. Police provocateurs were caught red handed in Montebello at the SPP
idiots wearing masks with rocks in their hands in amongst the protesters trying to start something. Now why pray tell were the "good guys" doing that?

Everyone has been quite disgusted and disturbed by it. That said, I do tend to gravitate towards people with similar views to my own I guess.

Edited on Tue Jun-29-10 01:21 PM by peacetalksforall
as the RNC in St. Paul? Window breakers, fire starters, and phoney protesters? Paid by the city taxpayers?

31. This is worth millions of dollars in truth. They want us obedient and pious. The lies of wealth
Edited on Tue Jun-29-10 01:53 PM by peacetalksforall
is what we saw. Those were mighty bloody tools in the muscled arms of people who must think that if they side with the barons, they too will become rich.

There is no fairness in the U.S OR CANADA. Why anyone would want to emigrate or enter either of these phoney police countries is a wonder. Our countries - wallowing in untruths. And animals who agree to do be the phoney work of inciting by cheating.

Liars. Fakes. Distorters. Destructors. Filth.

I've been asking for a couple of years if it was true that someone in St. Paul came from behind a police line with a plate glass breaking tool, used it, the retracted behind police lines?

This is the same as the door pounder Republicans set up by Tom De Lay in Miami - to stop an essential count and they did. They pretended to be Miami-Dade Co citizens. They flew in from Washington and they succeeded with their pounding for the cameras - then all but one were identified.

Let's hope for the same success.

Are they contracted?
