SIU re-opens another G20 investigation. Stop me if you've heard this before

Well. Who'd'a thunk it?

This time it's a guy whose arm and shoulder were fractured. Shockingly, the SIU couldn't get conclusive evidence after interviewing eight witness officers. They're re-opening the investigation only because additional evidence has come to light.

From Reuters.

I'll say that again. From Reuters. We can't get the truth from the people we pay to serve and protect, so we have to get it from a fucking wire service.

Canute Fernandes was knocked down as the cops charged the crowd at Queen and Peter Streets, arrested and subsequently treated at East General. Not sure how long it took between the stomping and the hospital visit; one hates to think of it this way, but if he wasn't held in the Eastern Avenue gulag first, he's one of the lucky ones.

Just let the idiotically simplistic narrative about "anarchists" slide for the moment ...

The Reuters video shows two additional people whom the SIU is identifying as possible witnesses. Gentlemen, if you're out there, please call 1-800-HELP-US-OUT-HERE.

Cue the crybaby cops whining about witch hunts.

  1. This is Canute - Yes I was taken to the Eastern Avenue detention center and only after several hours of complaining to nearly 8 to 10 officer that I needed medical attention, finally a lady police office of Greek decent understood the pain I was going through and took me to the doctor on site who said I had to be taken to the hospital and he could only give me a temp sling. I was taken in an ambulance at around 1.30 am with Mr. Nobody in it and left at the hospital without any pain killers, x-rayed - then told I could not get a good sling as I did not have the money to pay for it - as my wallet was taken by the police officers - and later sent back to Eastern detention at 9 am till was released around 5.30 PM.
