This was posted in another thread, but the focus wasn't on what you see in this.

At around :45, you see a guy in a black outfit exactly like the pictures we've all seen of the violent 'black bloc' rioters running behind the line of thugs with the rest of the plain-dressed/undercover cops for protection. You'll have to pause it or watch it a few times as the camera isn't steady, but it's clearly visible...

Yes the woman at :20 is a terrifying troll, but this video shows something a bit more important than that . . .

Yeah, and I linked to your thread and mentioned that it's not focused on this, it's full of other stuff like you said.
This is not a popularity contest.

At 45 seconds, to the right of the cop in yellow on the right side. is a guy with brown shorts, he starts running right behind the guy all in black with a hoodie, and there is also another man in all black seen right behind

It looks like he snuck past the cops, not that they were protecting him. If we are looking at the same guy.

He snuck past them to get inside their formation and do what? Stand there and be surrounded?

BBC had pretty good coverage over the weekend.

I saw enough to know ...

1) The cops did little to nothing about the black block

2) They harrassed and arrested a lot of people who were being completely peaceful - enforcing the "protest where you will not be seen or heard" mandate that is all too common today

3) I've met some really good cops - might I add, good Canadians. They were (apparently) not present in Toronto during the G20. At least not in spirit

The chief of police email is above, maybe a few questions directed his way might be a good thing

Some of those in the "black bloc" have also been seen wearing Nike. They should probably do some research and find that a lot of people that are actually anarchists despise Nike if they want to try to frame them.

don't really see anything of note here.

no sneaking or whatnot.

really this is just sensationalism, video doesn't show any context and it's just hearsay on what is going on in the video.

when both sides are doing wrong and whining, I end up ignoring both sides. Not the way to make an argument

I'm sorry but if I am riot control at a G-20 summit, I'm not wearing short sleaves and shorts while riding my police bicyle. It just looks wrong....hardly intimidating at all.
