I hope not.
otherwise this would be evidence of rape or molesting.

we all have the right to peiceful protest, what happened at the g20 was wrong and illegal buy the police force.

i thank the vancouver police for showing a lot of restraint and handling the riot in a respectful manor, with plenty of time for responsible people to leave.
I won't get into that with you as I actually worked for G20.. though I did get harassed by cops as well on my off day when I went walking around town when the marches & riots happened.

That said, many cops tonight just stood there as windows and fights broke out in front of them. They did not have the man power to deal with everything tonight for sure.

No.
but it doesn't matter whoever Jason Li is. that dude posted his info online and allowed public to access it. Either way, it's not an invasion of his privacy.

I don't condone harassment or any of such behavior, but just simply stating that it's not an invasion of his privacy.

None of this was a peaceful protest.

But the cops did a good job. I walked up to almost every line of riot shields, asking officers questions politely on where I can go and how to get where because of the closed streets. For the most part there were friendly. I almost shat my pants once because I asked one if I could go past the line, just around the corner because I couldn't find another way around. He grabbed my arm without saying anything and pulled me forward. At that point, I was thinking "Oh shit, what did I do?" but he just told me to go.

I stood around with a couple of cops near the library watching a marching line of riot geared police pass in front of me. I asked if I could take a picture...one of them heard me, turned around and posed, smiling.

No, I don't have a picture but my friend some video.

I think the scariest was right outside that swimsuit store on Granville. At the last second, I saw this giant thing flying at my face. I was like "OH SHIT!", pushed my friend away too and ducked. Thing just grazed my hair.

It was a mannequin torso. LOL wouldn't have killed me but fuck it would've hurt if it smashed me in the face.

MSNBC's "way too early" show just showed the Bruins winning the cup followed by showing the riots in Vancouver with the caption "Vancouver riot, eh?" and saying "it's like Athens up there" referring to the rioting in Athens today.

dumb question, if your car got torched, and enough damage was in place, would icbc pay you out for the car?

or does your comprehensive insurance cover it, and if it does do YOU have to pay the deductible?

I don't know how many people walk around with masks and shit on, especially not too long after a hockey game. Clearly it's those shit starters from the olympics. Youtube video is excellent.

ps. that asian guy, what the fuck, people break the windows and hes like a rat going for the merchandise.

Yea fucken right buddy. Take a psych intro class please.
obviously beating a 20 y/o wont accomplish anything, thats why your suppose to get them while they are young. not to pull the race card but I saw a lot more caucasian males causing havoc than any other race combined. but its not to say that there weren't indians and asians causing trouble, just quite a bit less of them. imo
