See, here's the thing...

...you're trying to make a point about how peaceful and non-violent "your community" is... maybe re-enacting the "Sack of Rome" is a bad idea.
-- MONTREAL -- Propane tank fireballs, Molotov cocktails and gunfire lit up a Montreal neighbourhood as marauding youth gangs responded to the shooting death of a young man by police.

The rampage erupted in the city's north end after residents took to the streets for a community demonstration to protest against the police shooting.

Hundreds of officers in full riot gear were still marching through the Montreal North neighbourhood early Monday morning, trying to bring calm to the area.
And if this was actually supposed to be about justice, some of the, uh... demonstrators were having a little trouble staying "on message."
The rampage continued through town before close to 100 people gathered in a commercial area.

Dozens crawled through the smashed windows of a pawn shop, convenience store and butcher shop. Most grabbed anything they could. Men and women of all ages could be seen running down the street clutching TVs, cigarette cartons and slabs of meat.

Some looters stood on the sidewalk and watched the action, drinking freshly stolen beer.

On Saturday, a police patrol in a Montreal park turned ugly when an officer opened fire on three young people, killing one man and wounding two others.
Well, geez... that sounds pretty evil... the cops just snuck up on these poor guys... murdered one of them... AND THEN things "turned ugly"?

That just sounds a little off to me. Could there be another possible scenario?
Montreal police say the officers were trying to arrest an individual during a routine police patrol in Henri Bourassa Park in the Montreal district of Montreal North when they were surrounded by a group of about 20 youths.

A few individuals ALLEGEDLY broke away from the group and rushed the officers.
Yup... no media bias here, huh?


Funny how nobody's actually saying it... but, it seems... there's never a taser around when you need one.


Please... share with us your wise & wonderful ways...
Well, my friend, they did that... and more...
