Just wait till February. We have no Posse Comitus laws in Canada, and the military is providing security here in Vancouver for the Olympics. If I vanish from ATS, it's because my own government saw fit to shoot me.

maybe he's telling the truth, maybe they're planning to really do something for the safety of the public........ like using all that military gear to take out 20 megalomaniacal scumbags.
Police used tear gas to stop a march to Downtown by anarchists and others opposed to G-20 policies this afternoon, but then demonstrators broke up into other groups and confronted police more directly in neighborhood clashes that continued into the evening.Police also were confronting a group estimated at 500, including protesters and the merely curious, that gathered tonight at Phipps Conservatory, site of a dinner for G-20 leaders.
About 300 protesters from this afternoon's thwarted march in Lawrenceville regrouped at Friendship Park in Bloomfield and moved to Baum Boulevard, where they were chased by police on foot around 5 p.m. Some of the protesters running through a gravel parking lot turned and threw rocks at police, who in turn fired "soft" projectiles and rushed in and arrested one man near Ritter's Diner, a landmark business in the area.
Police also blocked off Baum at Liberty Avenue.
Some demonstrators then moved down Baum and up Millvale Avenue, back toward Bloomfield, pursued by Ohio state troopers. Police blocked them before they could get to Liberty. Scattering protesters also shattered 10 panes of glass at the Boston Market across from Ritter's. The manager at the restaurant wouldn't comment.
Police on and around Baum then arrested five other people, including a man on a bicycle. That man's friends, who were biking with him, said he had happened to pass close to police but was not a protester. They were registering a complaint through an ACLU field observer.
