On Friday, September 28th, 2012 George Horton was sentenced to 10 months in Jail for his actions during the anti-capitalist demonstrations during the 2010 G20 in Toronto. This will be followed by 3 years probation.

He was convicted of Intimidation of a Peace Office & Assault on a Police Officer related to the attack on a Toronto Police cruiser with Staff Sergeant Queens inside, as well as a number of attempted mischief's on a number of police cruisers & a Tim Hortons. He was also convicted of Mischief over $5000 for attacking a CBC News Van. The Judge said these actions, "contributed to ongoing attacks on police, business and Media," with George making a "notable contribution to the path of distraction [at the G20]".

As the Judge read out officer Queens victim impact statement, where he describes being swarmed, attacked, and hit in the head by a black flag, Queens and G20 Lead Investigator Girioux freaked out.</td><td><img title="We prefer it to be called a swath, thank you very much" src=""></td><...
After someone in the room told them to go "fuck themselves", they grabbed the comrade sitting behind them, shoved him over his seat and threw him against the wall, and then tried to flex their muscles by ejecting 2 other members of the crowd. This led to an uproar in court in which the judge & police were in turn chewed out by a number of people who were then kicked out.

In a truly ironic moment, the judge struggled to read out her prepared statement praising canadian democracy, freedom and rights as she was drowned out by the G20 cops discussing charging members of the gallery and sirens rang outside the window.

We will have Georges address posted as soon as possible on our website and you can check out regular updates from <a href="">Peterborough ABC</a>, which will also feature updates from George in prison.

More things like this please.

notable contribution to the path of distraction, really?

you might also consider fixing up the sentence fragments and add in the missing apostrophes.

Faulty parallelism, scum bag!

So you're picking on 8th-grade level posters from your 10th-grade level perch. Big man.

Time to stop the mamby pamby walt disney tactics of having "solidarity" demos, and start the interception process earlier when comrades are actually being sentenced. Launch an all-out raid on the courtroom with guns drawn, free the hostages/comrades and gun down the judge and cops.

Are you serious?

Thats what I'm talking about comrade...time to stop playing these kiddies games and actually do something.

Fuck ouuta here, I'm no damn Pig I'm just someone who is not in fear to stand up and fight back against these mother fucking oppressors like you're dumb're just another pussified moron...go back to holding up you're signs and yelling out "shame" everytime one of you're comrades doesn't fight back and gets his head bashed in with a baton you coward...I'm tired of the madness, you might not be, you can go ahead and treat these oppressors like you're bestfriends all you want but on their side you are not you are just dumb and scared as they want and like from you... but I am NOT.

I couldn't agree with you more. Thank you for saying it.

"you can go ahead and treat these oppressors like you're bestfriends all you want but on their side you are not you are just dumb and scared as they want and like from you... but I am NOT."

Blah, blah, blah. Unless you're inexplicably posting this from a federal penitentiary, you're still just the same shit. If I had a nickel for every time I'd heard this lame shit from some drunk asshole at a party, I'd have enough to open up a tear gas factory.

And if I had a nickel for everytime I heard this same sorry ass excuse for inaction, I'd be lunching with Warren Buffet. Stay home, keep watching TV and keep telling yourself everyone else is just like you.

I'd rather keep trolling @news, honestly. But I'm down for you to do this!

it's 2 years probation, you should edit that
