Police violated rights, used violence at G20 summit: report

by

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.
