Taken from an apartment overlooking Queen and Spadina - clearly shows that the crowd is mostly just curious onlookers and absolutely NO violent protestors or violent actions (even agressive actions) everyone was just dumbfounded and confused - trying to find a way out, which as you can see was NOT directed nor were they given directions. They were surrounded, and every single one of them was detained. For close to five hours outside. Video shows the first hour and a half (edited).

1. It just keeps getting suckier and suckier.
The line between oppression and law enforcement is gone.

3. It's the same thing they did at the RNC in St. Paul -
surrounded the crowd on all sides and then violently arrested everyone. I guess that's SOP for them now.

4. Remember the guy that died in the Wal Mart stampeed????
Edited to delete text which could get me in trouble and simply say that I always think of that Wal Mart incident when I see a line of police like that.

5. That's not security, that's counter insurgency.
Franklin Lopez has nothing up since the 25th. I wonder if they have him locked up.

8. Protect and serve...
This video loads the slowest, over two days, of any video ever (for 4 years). Going through Yahoo, Dell & Google, guess it is my fault. I get the picture though. They did it at the last G-20 in Pgh., PA. Engulf the protestors, like a phago-cyte, or a white blood cell. Watch the 'organic' theory of sociology in action, as opposed to 'conflict-theory', or 'symbolic interactionism'.
