missmarsha: IMO they 'attacked' the G20 'protesters' because they were disobeying laws, direct orders from police, and vandalizing the best street in Canada.
OlafTheBent: I'm sure there's more that apply here. To say these assholes weren't breaking ANY laws is just wrong. In fact, they were breaking quite a few laws.
PJ_the_Barbarian: Go get 'em protesters! Strike a blow for isolationism! Or voting rights for mollusks! Or whatever it is you're doing!
OlafTheBent: From the Ontario Highway Traffic Act.Removal of vehicle, debris blocking traffic134.1 (1) Where a police officer considers it reasonably necessary,(a) to ensure orderly movement of traffic; or(b) to prevent injury or damage to persons or property,he or she may remove and store or order the removal and storage of a vehicle, cargo or debris that are directly or indirectly impeding or blocking the normal and reasonable movement of traffic on a highway and shall notify the owner of the vehicle of the location to which the vehicle was removed. 2005, c. 26, Sched. A, s. 20.... and then there's this.Duties of pedestrian when walking along highway179. (1) Where sidewalks are not provided on a highway, a pedestrian walking along the highway shall walk on the left side thereof facing oncoming traffic and, when walking along the roadway, shall walk as close to the left edge thereof as possible. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 179 (1).... and this.Removing pedestrians(3) Where a pedestrian is on a highway in contravention of a regulation made or by-law passed under this section, a police officer may require the pedestrian to accompany him or her to the nearest intersecting highway on which pedestrians are not prohibited and the pedestrian shall comply with the request. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 185 (3).I'm sure there's more that apply here. To say these assholes weren't breaking ANY laws is just wrong. In fact, they were breaking quite a few laws.
trappedspirit: That video is hilarious. I snorted. They couldn't take off fast enough, freaking protester hobbyists.
oldfarthenry: missmarsha: We also have `rights' as well as `laws' here. In fact, we wrote these `rights' down in a bill that was signed and everything.
misanthropologist: Excellent headline. No love for the Make Believes here.missmarsha: IMO they 'attacked' the G20 'protesters' because they were disobeying laws, direct orders from police, and vandalizing the best street in Canada.The best street in Canada? You mean Yonge street? I think it's time for you to get out of the T-dot and see more of the country.
Glenford: No one was attacked, watch the video...the police run up and stop right in front of them scaring the shiat out of the protesters (pretty goddamn funny if you ask me). It's the equivalent of going up to someone and shouting "BOO!!"
missmarsha: ... and vandalizing the best street in Canada.
Kareeshus: I love how Canadians always complain that nobody votes. Get out and vote, they say! Be a part of the solution, make your voice heard, they say!Then, if when Canadians make peaceful protest (and even when they don't), they deserve to get arrested and beat and have tear gas shot in their faces.Few nationalities have as much ill will for their countrymen as Canadians do.
Generation_D: If this is anything like WTO protests were 10 years ago, the protesters deserve everything they get. Farking out of town hippies come in, dump trash everywhere, break your neighbors windows then act like victims when the cops arrive. Yes the police go overboard, but the police are not the ones that start it.
JonnyG: Seriously, who cares?
