I'm NOT siding with the police in this at all.All I mean is that with the G20 in town,-they are NOT going to let people have the run of the city with all of those elite there.
what are the g20 leaders doing that they fear for their lives?
the ptb must have had an idea that people are upset,right?
NEXT TIME,LET THEM MEET ON AN ISLAND WITH NO PROTESTERS.

You need to view all of the dorm scene videos.
Tear gas was deployed at the entrance of one of the dorms. There is video from the street level and from the dorm overlook.
The overwhelming number of people in the video are students walking about and gawking at the insane, pointless show of force by the police.
Because the G-20 may attract many visitors unfamiliar with Oakland, some of whom may choose not to obey our laws and regulations, you should use caution during your travels throughout the week. While our Pitt Police Department and many other agencies will enforce the laws, and strive to ensure your safety, you can help as well. Here are some tips:
• Carry your Pitt ID at all times.
• Keep your belongings secure, and always lock your room, car, and bicycle.
• Travel with friends, and never walk alone at night.
• Treat others, including police officers, with respect.
• Avoid angry or obviously violent individuals.
• If you find yourself in a "mob," find a safe spot and remain calm; text friends to let them know where you are.
• If you are in a dangerous situation, contact police when on campus at 412-624- 2121 (add this number to your speed dial). Off campus, dial 911.
• Follow the direction of police officers and University officials.
• Enroll in the ENS system to be advised of dangerous situations on campus.
• Stay up to date on road and travel restrictions through the Pittsburgh Department of Public Safety Web site.
• Read Pitt's G-20 Summit Student Reminder (PDF).
