G20 riots

G20 riots

The G20 brought riots to Toronto streets today as angry protesters (the mayor called them thugs) let it be known they weren't in town to simply engage in peaceful demonstrations. Cop cars were set on fire, car windows and storefronts were smashed and arrests were made. Hospitals reported treating a few people for minor injuries.
