I still haven't seen this on any mainstream media outlet.

Wanna bet the editors have been told to make sure their reporters STFU?

Corporate message: Must not allow public to lose trust in police (in spite of fact they baited, rioted and attacked peaceful citizens).

The Toronto Police were well coached by RCMP bullies and other "regulation" enforcement types.

Joe 237, dBOs : They just ran it on CNN, the CBC news tv channel.

Mark : Not yet. People are outraged. And while it will be put down to merelya tactical mistake, there was someone speaking into all those cop earpieces ordering them to charge on peaceful demonstrators.
