"This ain't Canada right now" G20 cop says

CANADA - York Regional Police officer, Sgt. Mark Charlebois (badge number 815), is under investigation for telling people they are no longer in Canada and has no civil rights.

The video shows several people standing outside of the G20 security perimeter at King St. W. and University Ave. on June 27th while their bags are searched by a group of police officers. When a young man in a black T-shirt and cap refuses to hand over his backpack the police begin intimidating him and eventually tell him that he is no longer in Canada and that he has no civil rights.

This, and several incidents which involve "unprovoked attacks by police officers" and unwarranted arrests of Canadian citizens are part of a long list of investigations that are ongoing as the result of last summer's G20 meeting. The police corruption during that period has given Canadians an eyeful of what police are really like.

In one unprovoked attack police broke a man's arm just because he was taking photographs. He was then held for hours without being allowed to receive medical attention. Dorian Barton seeks $250,000 for the police assault and battery, unlawful arrest and detention and “negligent investigation.”

The number of similar lawsuits are piling up as police corruption and violence was rampant during the G20, causing more damage than anything done by the relatively few protesters.
