OK, sine we’re doing G20 pics. Here’s one.

Cops left their cruisers unattended. Let’s see, leaving them unattended in a crowd populated with large groups of anarchists. You think something might happen?

More G20 fun here:

Oh joy.
Been a while since we had a really good, top-drawer hippy riot on this continent. I was an eyewitness to the archetype of all such events, the Chicago convention riots of 1968. I watched most of it from the balcony of my parents’ hotel room. I was 18 and had shoulder length hair so I didn’t go anywhere near the street for fear the cops would mistake me for a communard and beat the crap out of me.
My mom, who was a delegate, was sure Nixon had somehow put the pinkos up to it. The Dickster probably wished he had the mojo for such a diabolical trick, but he had just started his own campaign and the dirty tricks wouldn’t reach their height of refinement until quite a bit into his term.
It’s well documented that the sense of smell has great power to arouse memories. The slightest whiff of tear gas, or anything like it, will take me back to Chicago 68 as though it happened yesterday.
