Pure Evil! - More G8-20 Horrors

John Pruyn, a 57 year old amputee was brutally attacked by police while watching the demonstration. Of all the attacks, this is the most cowardly and cruel. Anyone that would do this is evil, through and through.

In came a line of armoured police, into an area the city had promised would be safe for peaceful demonstrations during the summit. They closed right in on John and his daughter and the two others and ordered them to move. Pruyn tried getting up and he fell, and it was all too slow for the police.

As Sarah began pleading with them to give her father a little time and space to get up because he is an amputee, they began kicking and hitting him. One of the police officers used his knee to press Pruyn’s head down so hard on the ground, said Pruyn in an interview this July 4 with Niagara At Large, that his head was still hurting a week later.

Accusing him of resisting arrest, they pulled his walking sticks away from him, tied his hands behind his back and ripped off his prosthetic leg. Then they told him to get up and hop, and when he said he couldn’t, they dragged him across the pavement, tearing skin off his elbows , with his hands still tied behind his back. His glasses were knocked off as they continued to accuse him of resisting arrest and of being a “spitter,” something he said he did not do. They took him to a warehouse and locked him in a steel-mesh cage where his nightmare continued for another 27 hours.

Pardon my language, but FUCK THE STATE POLICE. I've heard lots of stories of comrades taking action against the G20 who were seriously hurt during the protests. Police violence is something that needs to be addressed.
