they are cops committing felony on a massive level
What massive felony would they be committing? I saw them do nothing wrong. Some dude claims they broke a camera - but that is just a claim. Who
knows what the dude did. Who knows if he is telling the truth.
Whether they are cops or not, trying to hide their identity - I just do not see what they did wrong? They are allowed to walk amongst the crowds.
Nothing wrong with that. They do not need to be wearing uniforms or holding thier badges out. They are doing what the others around them are doing.
So, what is the felony they committed??

Like you I don't see what they did wrong, though it is clear they were not protesters.
Any idiot can see that just from their body language, their speech, their actions.
They were certainly uncover officers.
I think the assumption is that they would cause trouble to allow for the authorities to crack down on the legitimate protesters.
Although that did not happen, it has been seen before.
And in that case, if it had happened, they would be criminals.
At the very least, and in concert with other video evidence, the police and authorities acted with violence and excessive force against the people of
their city, and visitors.
They violated the constitution, they used excessive force, they humiliated, abused and harassed American citizens.
And all on the presumed "assumption" that a crime "could" be committed by a very small minority.
Don't get me wrong, I accept your suggestion that they had done nothing wrong. But in unison with everything else that happened over the G20 to
protesters, it marks a severe turning point in American culture.
I don't think people should dismiss this so easily. America has indeed changed, and we are seeing tactics and actions against innocent people
reminiscent of a dictatorship.
If allowed to continue without any response, what will happen?
