Finally, 8 months after the G20 summit in Toronto, the MSM covers what really happened that weekend.

Gillian Findlay presents a revealing new street-level perspective of what happened when thousands of police were deployed in downtown Toronto and instructed to do what was necessary to ensure the wall around the G20 Conference Centre was never breached. Exclusive eyewitness video obtained by the fifth estate brings to light startling images captured on cellphones and minicams by the innocent bystanders who found themselves on the wrong side of all that G20 "order." In a rare television interview, Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair explains why police took the actions they did.

I personally was at the G20 summit in Toronto and also had quite an experience. Ive written about it, if anyone cares to read, its a little lengthy. It can be found here
My G20 experience

Watching this coverage made my blood boil. Some footage I had not seen before. It just makes me think, what happens when this is an everyday thing.

Another question I have is, why now? I mean we knew what happened 8 months ago, 8 months ago. The story was there, why cover it now? To say that they did? Or does it have something to do with the protests going on all over the world. I'm starting to believe TPTB want us to protest...

I wonder would this kind of police brutality spread in Wisconsin? Now some policemen joined the protesters but what about those loyal to the system?

The cool thing about this kind of brutality in Wisconsin is, the officers helping the protesters will be there to arrest agitators and will be able to spot a planted cop.
The Police chief of the local PD has decided his department will not be the next dept to be used by the machine, and they will not be the next LAPD, constantly under the microscope.
It is ingenious actually, knowingly to the crowd, planting officers among the protesters, this ensures peaceful protest.
It allows the protesters to get to know the officers and vise versa.
They will look out for each other.
It seems some officers still believe in "To protect and serve", that's awesome.

It's a shame the documentary didn't cover the entire story of the footage at around 13 minutes

I wonder why

The woman from Quebec reveals physical attacks is not the only issue here, I recall hearing about a guy who received prejudice from cops for his large nose......unprofessional
