This article is a quick follow-up to yesterday’s article on the Anarchist Asshats who decided it was a good idea to interrupt Toronto’s Remembrance Day ceremony on Sunday. The interruption was planned by one of Toronto’s most despicable anarchists (quire an achievement) named Julian Ichim (wearing the beige hat on the left side of the picture).
A video came out today, filmed by Derek Soberal, another one of Toronto’s more famous cop baiters. He’s most famous for his incidents during the G20. I’ll include a video of Derek Soberal Gone Wild! after the video of Sunday’s incident.
One thing I notice from this video is that the police didn’t take any action to arrest anyone- despite the fact that Ichim and his crowd were disturbing the peace, and that there was physical violence. Now, obviously Ichim and his crowd are to blame for this debacle- but, we have to put some of the blame on the police too. It seems that they let the anarchists get away all too often.
I’ve experienced this problem personally before. I was attacked by some anarchists while filming one of their marches a few months ago- the police watched it happen, and came to pull them away from me, but no arrests were made. Two days later I was seriously beaten by a group of anarchists. Each time the police decide not to arrest the anarchists for their minor crimes, they feel more confident and end-up escalating to new heights.
It’s time for the Toronto Police Service to re-evaluate their strategy. Because, as it stands, they are failing miserably…
Here’s the video from Sunday:
And, here’s the video of Derek Soberal Gone Wild!
