Why this blog has the name it has

Check out this piece of jernamalism from CTV. Not only can they not tell Queen and Spadina from King and Bay – they juxtapose the Nathalie Des Rosiers interview with the same old same old footage of the burning police car, over and over.

Because God knows, we don't want the narrative to be about brutal cops kicking the shit out of people and trampling their civil rights or anything. We want to make sure it's all about black-clad vandals trashing our city and OH MY GOD THEY BROKE SOME WINDOWS and you should have stayed home, yargle bargle bleghhh.

Oh, and the best part? They were going to get a senior police officer to go to the sentencing hearing for one of the people convicted in torching the cop car and give a Victim Impact Statement. Oh, the tragedy. The drama. I hope whoever it is, he can hold up under the emotional strain.

Fuck me. Why don't they just stage another goddamn police funeral, this time for the car?

  1. Hey man, wasn't there more than one car?

    Which only goes to show that the whole thing was orchestrated.

    You ever see a violent scene in a movie where a couple are in a car that gets attacked and one occupant says to the other: "Hey, this is dangerous honey. Let's get out and walk."

    No. It's always the case that those people stay in the car and try to drive until they're dragged from it.
