Violent demonstrations at G8!!!

Did you ladies see that the demonstrations have gotten violent in Toronto. They burned a police car and began rioting. No word on why it got out of hand. (Wonder how long it will take the to blame the Tea Party/conservatives or Bush?)

  • I think that is crazy. I will never understand why some protesters need to get violent. What does that do for their cause? Stupid.

  • The G8 is over, this is the G20. The violence was started by a small group - black clad, masked, "protesters." They have caused violence at other summits as well. They are threatening hospitals, smashing windows, have torched more than one police car, etc.. I've been watching it live on our local news station for the past couple hours. It really makes you want to listen to their cause, doesn't it?
