People are starting to realize the truth about what happened this weekend at the G20. The police purposefully allowed a relatively small group of black bloc protesters to run amok through the streets of Toronto committing vandalism, with visible weapons, with virtually no police around the entire time. Then after all the vandalism was done and the criminals escaped, the police arrested a bunch of innocent people, violated many of their rights, and put them in a cage in deplorable conditions.
As these stories come out, the outrage of Canadians will intensify. A falling Canadian dollar, falling stock market, falling housing market and rising taxes will only intensify the outrage that will be felt by Canadians. There are many people in Toronto who will not forget the horrific events that occurred this past weekend when they hear the full story. Calls for an "official" investigation to justify police action will intensity. This is when the police and the government will pull their ace out of their sleeves.
The only ace in their sleeves will be a video of black bloc protesters attacking a police car on Queen St., just East of Spadina that had police still inside the car. Footage of this has not been shown on any mainstream media source that i am aware of, but a few clips have surfaced on youtube. There is about a 15sec clip at the 0:42 mark
Here is another clip which shows the attack and the aftermath.
When public outrage about the G20 is at its peak, a video similar to this (or maybe this one itself) will be released to the mainstream media in Canada and it will be shown, on repeat, on CBC, CTV, Global, etc. None of the videos they have shown on the television so far have shown violent action against police (only against corporate store fronts). This video shows that black bloc members attacked a police car with weapons with police inside it and they will use this video as justification for the illegal acts committed by police, who were ordered to commit illegal acts by their superiors.
So I am writing this to warn the movement to expect this tactic. There will be a movement of people who will want an official investigation, and this video will be used to try to discredit the legitimate claims about the violation of our rights that occurred.
The people in this video are all actors. It's all for show. It's not real. It's like professional wrestling, they're on the same team. They have rehearsed this. They've drilled this before. They had undercover police / actors, dressed as black bloc anarchists, who attack these two police cars. The half dozen "agent provocateurs" or undercover black bloc anarchists who attacked this car were likely the only undercover black bloc members. The other black bloc members were mostly confused, angry teenagers from Quebec who will go along with the crowd and break a Starbucks window, but they would not attack a police car with police inside and with police in the area. The black bloc punk teenagers only committed acts of vandalism when there were no police in sight. Aside from this video, there is no evidence of a direct and coordinated assault on police. This is because the real black bloc members are just a bunch of punk teenagers, but the people dressed up as black bloc members who attacked this police car in this video are paid professionals.
The individuals involved in this covert operation can be seen in this video:
This video shows two undercover, red police vans, a squad of bicycle police, and the two bait cars that were attacked. The people in those cars (the two police cars and two red vans) and the people on the bicycle were the ones were involved in this stage play. These were the "agent provocateurs". The two cars that got attacked were relatively lightly defended. Most of the police in downtown Toronto over the G20 were fulled decked out in storm trooper gear, yet these police did not even have proper riot helmets. There may have been other provocateurs, or these may be the only ones, but this was the main team. This is also where the "riot" originated from. After these actors attacked these other actors, the police pulled back almost all of their forces and these provocateurs tried to start a riot all the way down Queen St. to Bay. Down Bay to King. Along King to Yonge. And up Yonge to Collage St. There were virtually no police around during that rampage because police were given orders to pull back all of their lines once these provocateurs instigated and led the riot down the predetermined path.
In this video, we see that police evacuate the area just prior to when the provocateured riot comes down the street. We also see that a guy with blond dread locks goes by on a BMX bicycle, who later causes the vandalism on the prop car that was attacked by the actors just down the street.

This picture taken at the scene of this initial attack on the police car shows that he does not have the number above the Canadian flag on his uniform.
