G8/20: dude not a cop

Something of a mea culpa: Here and here I joined the discussion around the circumstances of a certain individual filmed jumping on a police cruiser. Turns out he wasn't a cop and has now been named and charged as a result of his actions at the G8/G20.

Whoever and whatever he was doing there, I am relieved to know the police have actually managed to actually lay charges over some of the more violent actions of protesters. Nearly a month after the fact mind you and well, not apparently against members of their own ranks. They're still far too busy actually trying to avoid that particular brand of scrutiny.

It's possible now after Montebello and Toronto that the tactics of agents provocateur and assorted window smashers have had their day.

More at Dr. Dawg's.
