  1. Stop lying,she was murdered by the Riot police.

    • or by “protestors” with special interests. 

  2. Where were these champions of law order and the suppression of peaceful protest when the canucks lost the stanley cup? I am sure this is just a chance to use up all of the left over pepper spray and overtime budgets. I do wonder why they didn’t react when they had an unruly mob to contend with, but then, these are nice, safe, peaceful protestors what better way to suppress opinion?
