At first, I didn't see anything wrong.

Then I re-read the utube title saying that the police were using her to pose for a group photo.

How weird is that?

And her having an extremely sexy body build makes it even more freaky.

He went crazy on the bullhorn and flipped out on them."

I am Bill Wolfe. I was quoted accurately (but partially) in the feed above. But I was not the gentleman on the bullhorn. Nor was I the gentleman (dressed like a clown with a red nose) that read various police training manuals on crown control on a bullhorn. I did not go crazy and I did not use a bullhorn.
I did get bumped by police that walked through the crowd in the road. I spoke rationally to the PA State Police on scene commander as well as the city police commander and the protest organizer about that inappropriate and provacative tactic.

My blog is Wolfenotes. com - I will post photo's and write about what I saw in PBurgh later this weekend.
Sorry about that. But you must have been close then and know who I mean.

It looks like there's an anti-police brutality rally planned at Schenley tonight.
They have no idea what real police brutality looks like, cause they sure didn't see any this week.

I didn't see any "manhandling", and after reading Hopes' post, I watched it another five times on full screen, and I sure don't see a "her" let alone a sexy body. (It actually looked like the kid was being relatively cooperative.)

I heard it was his/her camera that they used, he wanted the photo.

What's the situation like in Oakland tonight? Is it still going to be filled up with riot police or are we looking at a smaller presence?

I would think a smaller presence now that the summit itself is actually over, but I have no idea. I need to head up to Forbes for something, so I'll have updates in a bit.

where did you hear that, exactly? i've heard that theorized, but nothing official. i sort of doubt the police would go along with that, especially such a large group of officers. but who knows.

and just because someone is cooperating with the police doesn't mean they're doing something they want to do.

we'll see - hopefully what exactly is happening there comes out now that attention is being paid to the incident.

i don't think the police were especially brutal, but there were some big overreactions. the number of arrests that happened last night seems inexcusable, from all the accounts i've heard.

And hopefully someone will change the sign and spell "RESTAURANT" correctly so they look more respectable than dumb.
