Spotted on the front lines of the riot squad that moved in after the attack was none other than Jon Andonian, videotaped on May Day punching people unprovoked on the sidewalk. Promoted from bike squad to riot squad for his sadism that day? Typical. FTP.

Neurotic Cops 04.Nov.2012 15:05

Den Mark, Vancouver WA

The obsessive-compulsive personalities within those comical comicbook get-ups are too obvious. The cops got upset because they saw some guy's shoelaces untied or some such. Their spokesdick said it's not a matter of free speech but a matter of breaking the law, to explain the idiocy of the cop overreaction. Had they just let the parade go by, it would've taken FAR less time than the disorder caused by the cops' on-display-for-all-to-see neuroses.
