How’s that "building relations" thing going, @TorontoPolice Tweeter guy?

Just checking in. Any progress identifying / charging these cocksu – er, perps? No, eh? Oh, well. Pretty hard when witnesses don’t come forward, isn’t it. How about: Arresting the two assholes who kicked Adam Nobody in the face after he was handcuffed? Charging the cowardly sacks of shit who beat the crap out of Lacy MacAuley? Or the ...

The Sean Salvati #G20 video: Abu Ghraib comes to Toronto

So apparently it takes three big strong police officers to manhandle one guy. Naked and handcuffed. Don’t know whether this is before or after they beat the shit out of him.

Let’s review: Dorian Barton ...

On CBC, a further demonstration of Toronto cops’ contempt for us

On Metro Morning today, Matt Galloway talked to police union boss Mike McCormack about the nameless asshole who broke Dorian Barton’s arm at the G20 last summer, and about the SIU’s investigation coming to a dead end. Anyone want to guess where Mike makes his stand?
