They aren't protesting; they are just anarchists and kids with nothing better to do than to destroy property and act like they are a part of something.

Hi Clearskies,

I was agreeing with you. And that would be a misses. I think it is Stevemagu that is disagreeing with you. Not me...

Thanks for you reply and honesty.


I believe that some of this type of provocation as you speak of is done with far greater goals in mind than what shows at the moment.

I too was wanting to see the events before this, however so far nothing has turned up. Not even in the MSM, only that he was suspected of some activity beforehand. Maybe true, I jsut find that the men dressed as "military" without identification to be hightly distrubing!



I agree that these men being dressed in camouflage is disturbing.

It makes me wonder if this was not actual Law Enforcement, but "private security" as in the many different types of groups of "private military contractors" like the infamous Blackwater/Xe, or Kroll, Triple Canopy, DynCorp, or any of the other "logistics facilitators" who "assist".

My first thoughts were that upon seeing the videos is that there is a distinct possibility of mercenaries, not Law Enforcement.

I don't see them showing any ID so there is no way to know if these were actual cops or right wing terrorists kidnapping this person. These protesters should start walking around with rifles, then I doubt the cops or whoever they were would be so quick to kidnap them.

If you watched the videos they did state that it was a peaceful protest.

If you bring guns, they will bring bigger guns, then it will be a Mexican Standoff.

Yes, with no identification, they are suspect, since that leads to deniability.

When in doubt, think it out, do not resort to violence, that is a last resort option.

It may help if you actually looked at the link you posted-




The individuals involved in the 9/24/09 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.”

I got the vibe that they were private military contractors as well. . They do not look like police, more like deputized muscle.

If they want peaceful demonstrations, when they refuse to allow peaceful assembly, then they have denied a basic human right of freedom of expression. They deny permits to assemble, and use tax dollars to create a condition of police presence that is intimidating and threatening to that basic right. They handled the situation poorly.

I do not fault the individual officers following orders; although, I do wonder when or if they will ever have their own internal expression of what we did was not American. This whole situation could have been overcome with just a permit issued to allow assembly within a certain area. They didn't want that. They didn't want the people to express their opinions. In essence, they wanted a confrontation.


Peacefull?? Read in the article it says "detained a protester they said was believed to be vandalizing a store." Since when does vandalising the store is peacefull? Cops did good thing to remove a vandal who was destroying property and creating ruckus.

Unfortunately things like this are seldom clear, in a few of the videos up of the protest people go up and try to hug the riot police, and that is about the absolute dumbest thing you could possibly do as they are pretty much open to smack you down then. I have a sneaking suspicion that a large number of the so-called violations were merely for the benefit of the cameras that seemed to be so prevalent, like those kids supposedly trapped on that stair case; they could have very easily not been hanging out there gawking.

Flame me if you want for not backing the protesters but I saw plenty of reasons why the protesters were just as wrong as the police in their actions, but few like to call them out on it because its not hip to side with anybody other than the underdogs.

It looks disappointingly unprofessional. They should either have been in plain clothes or in full riot gear.


Think of them as plainclothes police/undercover cops.

Military members supporting the G20 Summit that work with local law enforcement authorities but do not have the authority to make arrests?

Humm...but they can physically "snatch" or "kidnap" or "detain"?

I have read comments that this was a faked video, now it is proven to be a real event.

This video was featured on The Drudge Report, gaining much attention on the national front.


Officials with G20 security released the following statement to Raw Story and other media outlets:

Considering this is the US we're talking about, he could have had a weapon on him. In a riot, or lead up to a riot, police may use physical force to remove agitators. And before you cry foul, its a legal tactic.

And military members can be sworn in as police and given the legal ability to make arrests.

Yeah, sounds like you're a real patriot for standing up for our rights.

At least those kids who you sneer at give a flip what happens to this country.
