Having a hard time arguing with this

This piece from Now's Enzo de Matteo's been on my mind for several days. Distilled down to a few words, he's urging Toronto's progressive councillors not to make nicey-nicey with the Ford regime, but to dig in and fight and play dirty every step of the way.

Don Cherry is a pussy

Tough guy, hiding behind the guys who actually do the work and firing artillery rounds at people dozens of kilometres away.

More flying monkeys, Smithers!

Yeah, well.

Never thought I'd be linking to both the Stun and the Putz approvingly, but there it is.

What are we paying these people for?

Lest anyone suspect this corner of indulging in an unseemly end-zone dance at the apprehension of Toronto Police Constable Babak Andalib-Goortani, let me emphasize: this is barely the start.

The things you find on the intertoobz ...

Hey, a freebie! Or, perhaps, one of those cheap plastic prizes you get in cereal boxes ...

If anyone feels like having a full and frank exchange of views with one of the mouthpieces for the Ottawa cops regarding the Stacy Bonds scandal, he appears to have provided his name and phone number here:

S/Sgt. Michel Marin
Ottawa Police Service
Professional Standards Section
613-236-1222 ext 5830

Haven't tried it myself, but if anyone does, please tell us about it in the comments ...

(H/t Dr. Dawg.)

Charges dropped against one G20 defendant ...

So it seems that Jaroslava Avila's not going to be prosecuted on bullshit "conspiracy" charges.

Yeah, well. While the evidence doesn't yet suggest that the Toronto Crown's office has its head as far up its ass as its Ottawa counterpart, let's not get too excited. It's not as if the Crown has suddenly developed a moral sense or anything.

Police brutality at the G20: Steve Paikin testifies

It just gets better and better, doesn't it. When it comes to sadistic assholes in police uniforms, the G20 really is the gift that keeps on giving.

The Blue Wall is a threat to public safety

At some point, the whole discourse based on some spurious distinction between brutal sadistic bastards in police uniforms and the so-called "good" cops needs to be tossed out. I'd respectfully submit that we've passed that point.
