quick video snapshots without any context aren't very useful at providing a view of the whole picture.
After Saturday's nonsense in the Queen/Spadina area, police were right to be extra vigilant when receiving reports of groups with bricks, molotov cocktails and other items in their backpacks.
Don't forget, the black bloc start and end every window smashing episode with a peaceful march or peaceful gathering on the lawn somewhere.
Isolated, 2 minute video clips don't do much to show the police responding inappropriately.
In fact, I wish that they had laid a beat-down on the thugs smashing away on Queen on Saturday instead of simply managing their route of destruction.

There were over 40,000 people in Toronto on Saturday representing a wealth of great causes and world needs, but virtually none of their peaceful marches or rallies received much attention due to the few hundred clowns who like breaking things. It's a shame to have such irrelevant people dominate the airwaves instead of the true humanitarians that are actually doing something useful with their lives.
