Maybe you believe that anyone near a G20 protest should have expected
to be arrested, whether they were protesting or not, violent or not.
But even if that is so, no one — violent protestor, peaceful
activist, or regular citizen in the wrong place at the wrong time —
deserved the sadistic treatment.
This cannot rest, no matter how many lame justifications or
show-and-tell displays the police stage. The damage done to the psyche
of the city is far more severe than the broken windows and senseless
vandalism inflicted by the handful of idiot anarchists — and it will
take much longer to heal.
