G20 injustice

I don't know exactly what George was supposed to have done, but when the police left cruisers that were stripped of equipment unattended for long periods of time in the midst of the protest it is obvious that they were deliberately setting up a form of entrapment and any legal proceedings resulting from this should never have been allowed to proceed.

Interesting comment Ronzig,
