Great photographs. This is the kind of reporting we can put some faith in these days. Tell your buddy to keep the camera always handy for rolling and compliments on good shots

cops readily admit to dressing up as 'protesters' and inciting violence.

kinda funny they just LEFT their cruisers there for the tiny 'mob' to easily set ablaze, just in time for a great Photo-Op!

From the "SPP" a few years ago in canada.

EDIT: how do i embed a youtube video?

Definitely. I thought this would be a good place to pass it out there. If you use twitter his username is @Iwasaround. He's always in the thick of it witnessing and documenting. This just seemed to be interesting to other members here. =)

If you are into news, stories, and images that are presented to inform, not to hypnotize you may be interested in this, Foo uses it a lot to get info out. great place if you haven't already heard of it.

I'd venture to say they absolutely love the dynamic at these thingers.

'Oh, look at the plebes out there mulling about. They would probably rip me limb from limb if they ever had the chance...I think I'll legislate myself another couple billion and get the rumpus room lined with swiss granite and maybe i'll finally get that lobbyist prick from Conoco to buy me an authentic Botticelli...'

The whole thing is probably an aphrodisiac.

how do i embed a youtube video?

Hey justadood, looks like you almost had the embedding down, make sure to copy everything after the "v" and before the &, then click the you tube button in reply box and paste the code.

width="640" height="385"> "" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385">

In this, extract 8VfypUzx1t , copy and paste in the reply box after hitting "youtube" button. You can leave out the forward slash after the v also.

Hope this helps

The cars were a distraction/decoy,

leaving a patrol car with windows open, a piece of paper on the front seat
cannot burn down a car. There had to be some kind of combustible fuel at
the area of initial fire.

Besides, the gas tanks barely popped, the tanks were empty. What cop car goes to a scene on an empty tank. (even gasoline fumes are more combustible). Sheer nonsense.

Anyone who knows the streets of Toronto would know that the herding at Queen's Park was a ridiculous idea lol. Pushing a crowd North, then just to have cops stand there and do nothing. Someone was obviously on lunch break and didn't have a clue and either did the cops.

No, he NEVER sell's his photos. They are all public domain, he just added a few more and had to do some reorganizing, here is the link. Flickr

Did Police Show Of Force Provoke A Robust Response From G20 Protesters?

Its all theater to justify the billion dollar security budget and to get people more conditioned to accepting a more militarized police presence.

More and more evidence is surfacing that there were Agents in the crowd, and that the burining cop cars was a planned photo op.

A most interesting discussion.

Has anyone come across any info to corroborate the claims about the cars being planted?

I think there is a lot of dis and mis info going on concerning this issue, and i find it interesting to note the same straw-men tactics being used int his thread that I have come across on other forums where this topic is being discussed;

that is, arguing against egregious claims about 'evidence' when all anyone has really offered is pieces of the story.

I think the idea that these were 'police' infiltrators may be misguided. It's not the police who benefit from this as much as it is the defense contractors who get these billion-dollar security contracts to arm and outfit the police.

I suspect that whoever those guys are, they would certainly benefit from employing some of these so-called 'international anarchist protesters' to run amok and create a justification for such high security budgets.

It also seems relevant to note that a very similar script seemed to be followed in Vancouver during the 2010 games, where 'black-bloc' tactics were used to attack large, corporate stores (who would have the minimal damages 100% covered by insurance) while walls of well-armed police in riot gear stood by passively watching.

To claim these are are 'police infiltrators' is to think far too small. These guys are most likely from much higher up int he food chain.

i look forward to more details from this story to filter out eventually, like the serial numbers from those cruisers, more video from some of the ACTUAL protesters showing 'black bloc' dressed protesters running behind police lines, etc.


I also found this recent bit of news interesting:

A Windsor man is charged with torching a Toronto Police cruiser during the G20 summit, police said Wednesday. Police also announced that a man previously arrested in the investigation was rearrested for allegedly breaching bail conditions....

The cruiser had been wrecked and was unoccupied when it was set on fire.

Giroux described the suspect as known to police and “I really don’t know what he was doing here, whether he has a legitimate purpose for being in the city.”

He said the suspect doesn’t appear to be the usual type of protester — a political dissenter — and is known for criminality by police but didn’t elaborate.

Nicodemo Catenacci, 41, is charged with arson and breach of probation.

So, they arrested some guy who is known to police for 'criminality' but he isnt known for political activism.

If thats true, it makes one wonder what this guy was doign at the right spot at the right time...


So, does anyone know of any updates on those cruisers?
