Breaking News!

Too sleepy from editing this to make a video link. Watch This!

A bunch of you seem to assume that just because my website is called I *Support* what these kids did. I've addressed this topic in a number of forums but suffice it to say, I think that this was a case of wrong place and wrong time for actions which may at some point be necessary but at this point were nothing but childish random acts of anarchy that served no purpose but to further divide the community.

I feel that the issue of the cop that was injured was one of collective self-defense or mutual aid. I neither condemn nor condone the action of whoever struck the blow.

I will have a more detailed post with a new video tomorrow.

That's messed up. There's no cause for the type of vandalism those people were doing. You can get messages across without looking like hoodlums and jerks.

Where are the photos of the police brutality? The photos of the people that got hit by the police car? The photos of the injuries from the indescriminant beatings? There were photographers and video cameras all over the place! Sorry, but these teenage gangsta-terrorist wanna-bes don't have any credibility when they attempt shade their version of events.
Also, there's a nice picture of a man (oops, police representative of hatred toward capitalism) brutaly beaten by the idealists of anarchy at:

Ridiculous. Protest without being loser teenyboppers pissed off at mommy and daddy for not liking your favourite Linkin Park cd.

I guess I am misinformed... I'd love to see shop owners, and residents stand up to these hooligans. Don't these morons realize that their message is totally lost (even if it was a good one or not) when they act like idiots? No government, bah! Utopia is dead. Grow up.

Ok, now to comment on the video and not the subject of the video.

Great footage, it's nice to see stuff like this now and then. I don't necessarily agree with half the morons who ruined it for everyone, but footage like this is very worthwhile. More people need to carry cameras around with them so that everyone can see the big picture and draw their own conclusions.
