did a search, didn't see this but check it out...

poor LARPING nerd, gets shaken down for his non dangerous weapons, only to have them displayed as for use against g-20 riot police.

so not only are they hassling knights as they wander to their quests, they are claiming the non lethal "toys like" equipment was potentially for dangerous use

sad sad sad!!

Toronto Police chief Bill Blair is going to end up the laughing stock of the whole world because of the things that happened at G20. He is going to get laughed right out of office and it serves him right.

I love the way they imply apology but don't commit to it.

Quote from article;There was no intent to mislead anyone, but if people feel that they were, then I would apologize.”

the phrasing avoids actual admission and retraction.
It really SHOULD say 'we apologise for misleading the public.....

What's the problem here? Apparently the police have discovered that al qaeda has infiltrated the nerd community and acted accordingly. They probably save dozens of people from being slapped with foam swords!

Funny you should mention this, our local media claimed that the police found dangerous weapons such as a knife and other dangerous items but CP24 news failed to show any videos or photos of them

Thus this why i am not watchiing anymore of the local news.

Poor guy- the shame

Maybe people will not be so quick to take the p-ss in future though - they better watch out for poison gas, and flaming nerf arrows ..

I would not be surprised if they started to do it by the coast.

For all we know this "nerd" may have been a powerful sorcerer who indeed was planning on wielding his fabled flame swords!
