Update to 420 Peaceful Demonstration Arrests

Filed under: 420 — Tags: , , , — thatguyinlondon @ 9:23 am

From the  Police Service website:

Results of “4-20”
On Wednesday April 20, 2011, at 4:20 PM, the London Police attended the area of Victoria Park in response to the anticipated “4-20” protest. There were approximately 100 protestors. Police arrested 5 people which lead to 4 drug possession related charges and other criminal charges, such as cause disturbance and resist arrest. As the protest continued, the protestors remained peaceful and there were no further confrontations with the police.


100 protesters and 25 “peace” officers equals 5 arrests. The big sting! I am sure this brings great pride to all Londoners. It is good to know our tax dollars are well spent. Not!

Note the time of the arrests: 4:20pm. How long was the demonstration going on before that, with no problems? Right at 4:20 the police made their move and the “cause disturbance” began. Shouldn’t it be those officers up on charges? I don’t want to sound like I am in a schoolyard, but they started it! What about “resist arrest”? Did you watch the video? Any of them? Did anyone see any resisting other than maybe the guy on the ground resisting getting kneed in the kidneys? If you did, let me know, I’ll post it. And it closes with “As the protest continued, the protestors remained peaceful and there were no further confrontations with the police.”  Could this be because the “peace” officers stopped harassing people? I say it was peaceful from the start and the police created the disturbance.

Who are these 5 people? Do you know them? Are they willing to talk? When are the court dates? Have any charges been dropped?

If you have any information, pictures or video, please get in touch. I’ll be happy to post them and present your side of the story.
