We had them at G20 in London, they were actually spotted by a Liberal democratic Mp who was on the demonstration. They were seen throwing bottles at
the police. later they were caught being allowed through the police lines.
It's frickin diabolical that this stuff goes down. I will never understand those who always rush to the Polices's defence. In my opinion it makes
you just as bad as the Police you seek to defend.
This is exactly the point. We're told to trust the Police, that they're in their position to help the public.
How are people supposed to trust these people when their colleagues are caught doing this?
To the poster suggesting that they are in the group to prevent crime...
The job of the riot police in this instance was to prevent access to the G20 area, walking along the streets amongst the crowds dressed in black with
scarves covering their faces is not in line with this role.
You are simply delusional if you think they were there to prevent crime. They were clearly there with the intention of either gathering intel on a
peaceful protest group, or they were there to deliberately cause violence against their colleagues so that they could justify a crackdown.
And why would they do that? So they can arrest as many as possible, add them to watch lists and later beef up justification for more draconian
I can guarantee you that any of those detained on that day simply for being there are now on lists labelling them as potential domestic terrorists.
And what is more worrying, is that Nazi Germany had the same systems prior to the rounding up of homosexuals, Jews, journalists and academics.
This is not a coincidence. This is the inevitable result of a government growing in size and initiating ever-increasing control of its people. Now
that lists are in place, those people compiling and watching such have to justify their roles. It becomes an industry in and of itself. America has
created an entire employment sector based on the fear of their own people. Because of this, funding has to be justified, and because of this, the
threat has to be perpetually increased.
Trust me when I say this, because history DOES repeat itself:
If the people do not force change in one way or another, you will have an incident in the next five years where your so-called police open fire with
live rounds on protesters. It is inevitable.
Why is it inevitable? Because the majority of the people are blind to the risks having lived in naive bubbles of media induced comfort for decades,
while the police and authorities have been indoctrinated into believing any argument against power is a threat.
You'll have innocent protesters wishing to have their voices heard, nothing more, and you'll have riot-police with a mindset that any dissent is an
attack by domestic terrorists. They will shoot them.
Laws are introduced on the back of necessity, and then they are abused by those in positions of power to make their control of the people more
effective, make their job easier, and gather income through fines. We've seen it in the UK with the spying laws.
National and local government proclaimed that they would only be used for the policing and prevention of terrorism. Within weeks they were being used
on regular citizens for mixing recycled rubbish with regular. Covert cameras were put up all over the place to catch people being fruity in public at
night. Our own local council formed an entire department dedicated to gathering intelligence on citizens, for everything, including urging people to
report those with "more than one mobile phone" and those who "act suspiciously".
Lets face facts here, America is the next Fascist nation already. It's now up to the people to use the rights they have left to peacefully force an
explanation from leadership and to seek a change in the laws passed. First off, you need to be asking the Pittsburgh Police exactly why they thought
it was acceptable to completely disregard the constitution.
