I wonder what would happen if a bunch of protesters came prepared.
*They dressed in full riot gear
*They carried batons and shields
*They carried OC and a Tazer
*They carried a firearm or two
Then they march in line down the street beating their shields in an ominous rhythm. The leader would be behind them with a big ol' speaker system repeating a recording on how this is a peaceful lawful protest according to the constitution, etc.
That would be interesting to see.

There is a report of a kid getting arrested, but it is not linked to this video footage.
It isn't just a problem with the uniforms, it is also the car they put the kid into, and the whole video.
This video is nothing but pure propaganda.
Once again look at the people from slides from a credible source.
Here is a picture of a protester getting arrested. This is how they do it.
Edit to add - look at the slide show, notice how uniform the gear these real riot police are wearing. It is very different than the supposed police in this fake video.

They're doing the right thing. You deserve to have your windows smashed. You deserve to be frightened and harassed. They've picked a side, there is no place to hide anymore.

Statement from G-20 Joint Information Center to College Politico: The individuals involved in the 9/24/2009 arrest which has appeared online are law enforcement officers from a multi-agency tactical response team assigned to the security operations for the G20. It is not unusual for tactical team members to wear camouflaged fatigues. The type of fatigues the officers wear designates their unit affiliation. Prior to the arrest, the officers observed this subject vandalizing a local business. Due to the hostile nature of the crowd, officer safety and the safety of the person under arrest, the subject was immediately removed from the area.

A new thread popped up on ATS with video.
Here's another angle of protesters throwing rocks at cops. The camera pans quickly and at .28 seconds, you can see a kid dressed in black with a blue back pack.

Always great to see those that don't appreciate the dedication, sacrifice and committment the men and women in the US Armed Forces have in order to keep the spoiled, undeserving and ignorant safe at night. Sleep soundly knowing those "jarheads" will do whatever they are told in order to keep you from worrying about missle attacks while you BBQ, buses blowing up while you ride them to watch a movie or having a restraurant destroyed while you are at dinner with your spouse.

Just remember - this was happening under Bush also - the only difference was that Bush was able to Censor the News organization more effectively.
