The G-20 Protesters – Wanton Criminality

From a bemused Associated Press:

Police arrest more than 500 at Toronto summit

By Rob Gillies, Associated Press Writer June 27, 2010

TORONTO – Police conducted a large raid and rounded up more protesters Sunday in an effort to quell further violence at the global economic summit after black-clad youths rampaged through the city, smashing windows and torching police cruisers.


Police said they have arrested more than 500 demonstrators, many of whom were hauled away in plastic handcuffs and taken to a temporary holding center constructed for the summit.

Thousands of police in riot gear formed cordons to prevent radical anti-globalization demonstrations from breaching the steel and concrete security fence surrounding the Group of 20 summit site.

We wish the radical left would make up their collective mind. They demand one world government but then complain about globalization.

Toronto Police Sgt. Tim Burrows said police made at least 50 arrests in a Sunday morning raid on a building on the campus of the University of Toronto, where they seized a cache of "street-type weaponry" such as bricks, sticks and rocks

The disorder and vandalism occurred just blocks from where U.S. President Barack Obama and other world leaders were meeting and staying…

"What we saw yesterday is a bunch of thugs that pretend to have a difference of opinion with policies and instead choose violence to express those so-called differences of opinion," Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s chief spokesman Dimitri Soudas said Sunday

Mr. Harper is what passes for a conservative in Canada. Hence his harsh words.

Saturday’s protests began with a peaceful march, sponsored by labor unions and dubbed family friendly, that was the largest demonstration planned during the summit weekend. Its organizers had hoped to draw a crowd of 10,000, but only about half that number turned out on a rainy day…

There are reports that those who did show up were paid by the labor unions, under their ‘rent an anarchist’ program.

Still, it was fun to see revolutionaries carrying umbrellas to protect themselves from the gentle summer rain.

The black-clad demonstrators broke off from the larger crowd of peaceful protesters and began torching police cars and smashing shop windows.

Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair said the goal of the militant protesters was to draw police away from the security perimeter of the summit so that fellow protesters could attempt to disrupt the meeting.

Some police officers were struck by rocks and bottles and assaulted, but none was injured badly enough to stop working, Blair said.

"We have never seen that level of wanton criminality and vandalism and destruction on our streets," Blair said

That’s only because Toronto has never welcomed so many ‘peace advocates’ before.

    So the “youth” in the white headband and T-shirt must not have been with the other “youths” that were “black-clad youths” (???).

    Funny .. it looks like they’re doing the same dance on top of the burnt out squad.

    Just askin’, ya’ know.

    “Wanton Criminality”

    Speed reading is hurting my coprehension. I naturally assumed this was an article about liberal democrats.

    But after slowing down, I realize it is an artical about future liberal democrats.

    There has got to be a chemical that can be mixed with
    water in a fire hose that will make the area so slippery
    that these hooligans cannot even stand up. It could even
    have an unremoveable color (not yellow, that’d be racist,
    say blue or green) to identify them afterwards if they were
    ‘accidentally’ sprayed with it. They have no answers, only
    complaints. Enough of their antics. Wash ’em down the
    sewers (no wait, that’d be polluting the sewers).

    Democratica Delinda Est!

    • Right of the People says:

      A few years back when they held this conference in Quebec City one of the agents had an idea for non-lethal crowd control. He suggested using a liquid manure spreader to spray them with. After all he reasoned, they couldn’t complain because it would be 100% organic.

    Obama’s new site paying Middle-Eastern countries as Indonesia, would really send them over the edge. I still haven’t figured out where the 6 drill points through the ice in the deeper seas of the Middle-Eastern countries are. Maybe ice bergs are down deep. Obama is doing everything to build the wealth and technology of muslim countries.

    I’m waiting for the LSM to release names of some of the “youths”. I bet you Coke there’s not a Bill or a George or even a Pierre in the lot.

    Liberal policy makers DON’T care if liberal protesters smash and destroy, they were once like that too 20 years ago.(and besides, evil businesses are the only ones that suffer anyway) The police UNION will be rather soft on them.
    Liberal bankers + liberal street activists + police unions = a big show, no one will be seriously punished

    Ever notice how the liberal voting block (black people) are abused and shot at by police, yet the liberal politicians never seem to punish the police officers (voters) union?
    Liberal street people + police unions + liberal politicians = Nothing will change

    All the protesters on college campi: the rioting, the sit-ins, the smashing of windows–ever notice how the hammer never falls on them?
    Liberal students + liberal administration + police unions = no punishment for anyone

    You should expect this charade by now.

  7. tranquil.night says:

    Next year they should just hold it in China. It’d eliminate this problem.

    No reason to protest capitalism anymore.

    Those rambunctious ‘youths’ would probably think twice before intentionally getting themselves thrown in jail.

    It’s too appropriate on so many levels.

  8. fallingpianos says:

    Seems to me these black-clad protesters bear an uncanny resemblance to the silhouette targets found at shooting ranges.

  9. GetBackJack says:

    This is curious to me, on the same lines as “it was terrorists who took down the World Trade Center, so why am I the one being punished at the airport?”

    In this same vein, the Utes are protesting the G20 elitists crushing Little People ….. by burning, looting and causing grief and considerable anxiety and turmoil and expense for ….. the Little People.


  10. Reality Bytes says:

    Under Obama, they’re “Wanton Criminals” but when Bush was round, they were “Activists”. Hmmm

    AP Reports: “Wonton Criminals Wreak Havoc on Chinese Takeouts”.
