Anarchy

The New York Daily News includes a Canadian in a short list of "hard-core extremists with histories of violent and disruptive tactics" expected at the forthcoming Republican National Convention in NYC. Funny how every news report I have ever read about the teddy bear/catapult incident at Quebec City has until now neglected to mention a salient fact about the teddy bear.

Jaggi Singh, 32, a Canadian citizen, is known for allegedly setting off hoax devices to detour police resources. He allegedly catapulted teddy bears soaked with gasoline at police at the Quebec G-20 protest in 2001, according to NYPD reports. A member of the International Solidarity Movement, or ISM, he was seen shooting a handgun, and allegedly received firearms training from Toure, according to a police source.

Maybe Svend can intervene on Jaggi's part.

Why will Singh even be allowed into the US if he has such a reputation - and a criminal record to boot?

Oh well - the joke's on him. I hope he likes his cell mates on Ryker's Island. In that place, globalization takes on a more sinister meaning.

Did anyone else notice that one of the alleged attendees is a former Black Panther who served time for armed bank robber and "plotting to overthrow the Federal Government"? And he is walking around free because...?

"And he is walking around free because...?"

Because he didn't get a job with the Toronto Public Library?
