Police violated rights, used violence at G20 summit: report


 

Police working Toronto’s G20 summit committed systemic civil rights violations, resorted to violence and blindly followed orders, even those they questioned, according to a scathing report from the Office of the Independent Police Review Director.

The 300 page tome found the Toronto Police Service planning for the summit “incomplete and inadequate.” The Prisoner Processing Centre, where more than a thousand prisoners were detained was “poorly planned, designed and operated.”  And record keeping means no one actually knows how many people were arrested that weekend.

The Star has full breakdown of the report here. You can also read the entire document itself here.

  1. The police kept referring to protesters as terrorists…..that this is how they are looking at the people they are sworn to protect, not to mention from whom they get paid, is beyond troubling – and the only actions that were actually terroristic, were those of the police.
