“The officer said that eventually there was a clear order from the command centre saying ‘Do not engage.’ ”
At the same time the vandals were trashing and burning the police cars, the windows of which were down and all police equipment removed, in another part of the downtown, peaceful protesters and innocent bystanders in the wrong place at the wrong time were rounded up and incarcerated in a temporary jail and denied all their rights.

Officers making Holocaust jokes, mocking people begging for water and laughing at detained women forced to urinate in public and wipe themselves while handcuffed.” (…)
Taylor and his girlfriend were walking home and stopped to observe a peaceful protest. They were arrested, as were a couple who had the misfortune to step onto the Esplanade after dinner at The Keg, as the police swooped down. (…)
Several officers laughed at one girl crying for her overdue medication. Taylor begged for water for nine hours and eventually passed out… When detained women begged for pads or tampons, male guards laughed and said: ‘That explains your attitudes.’
Dear Canadian Jewish Congress:
When the very cops you rely on to play out your Nazi-hunter fantasies turn out to be “hate speechers” (and worse) themselves, where does that leave you?
I could have told you this would happen but you were too busy calling me names and trying (unsuccessfully) to ruin my life.
Why is an uneducated shiksa prole like me so much smarter than you?
One day you just might be forced to look to this knuckle-dragging, gun-toting goy to protect you, when the police decide they don’t feel like it.
So why not be nicer to me, huh?
