G-20 policing: the tipping point? Or is going viral precisely the point?

Dr. Dawg has an optimistic viewpoint on the outcome of the trials Mr. Pruyn was put through.  Cathie From Canada thinks this story is going viral.  While I am hesitant to disagree with them, I would posit that if the whole point of the G20 display of excessive policing is to intimidate rank and file Canadians, demonstrating your willingness to beat up an amputee is an effective way to accomplish that goal.

the CBC has picked up the Pruyn story and reading the comments makes me want to cry. Do I really live in a country full of mean spirited fascists or do they just all congregate on the CBC comment sections.
