    At a concert, one time, a guy offered me fifty bucks for the t-shirt I was wearing. (It was from the same band, a year previous) When I removed the shirt, I was tackled by about six big guys, in boots, and my keys were taken out of my pocket, and my car trunk was searched, I guess they thought I was boot-legging t-shirts, or perhaps they had a bad day, and were looking for a hippie to beat up. I don't know, I was just glad when they let me up & allowed me to leave the parking lot.

    Some cops collectively stink, I guess. I'd still rather have them than not.

    You want more proof than them admitting to it?

    heh, heh.....

    "...by their BOOTS ye shall know them....."


    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    I see them admitting they had undercover folks there. But there's still a few questions I would like to see addressed. Was this just mistaken identity ? Was the guy released ? Was he one of the foiur arrested ? And why do we care what the Canadian police do, anyways ?

    Also, how does one go about disguising one'self as a protester ? This guy appeared to look more like an off-duty soldier.

    No.
    He was never really arrested or charged, they were acting.

    The four who were actually arrested were another group. They got roughed up and charges were actually filed against them. They weren't cops so they didn't get the free pass.

    The protest was pertaining to the Security Prosperity & Partnership thingie which is bringing in the North American Union thingie. If they will do this kind of thing in Canada, then it is doubtful they will hesitate to do it in the United States. If you recall, this activity was alleged by activists during the WTO thing in Seattle...it would appear possible that the Seattle agitators were wise enough to change their boots and not get caught by the peaceful demonstrators.

    Well, it is kind of obvious they didn't do a very good job. Their acting skills weren't real strong either for that matter.

    I just don't see proof that this guy was a cop. It's too big of a jump that you ask me to make. Further discussion about it will most likely deteriorate, so I'll bow out.

    Brother, I'm starting to wonder if you're an agitator. ;) What is it that you are looking for to make the jump? The RCMP admitted to it...they are their boys. Do you require DNA samples from the cuffs?

    They showed, without a doubt, that the guy being held down was a cop ? I'm really sorry if I missed that, but I've re-read it several times, and I don't get that out of it.

    I'm not trying to agitate, I'm trying to understand, what exactly the big deal is.

    Anyhoo, have a great weekend. I don't post much, once that friday bell goes off in 3.....2......1.....


    B.C. is outtie.
