EDITOR’S NOTE: Still think the police are on your side? The time for sugarcoating reality is over. The job of the enforcers is to keep the ruling class in power. Time to wake up, folks. When this level of tyranny comes here, who do you think will squash the dissent? It won’t be the politicians suiting up and taking up arms to fight us. It will be their order following minions. They’ll violate your rights in exchange for a paycheck you were stolen from to provide. Who’s side are they really on?
Update (0943ET): AP News reports police have begun arresting protesters at the trucker demonstration in Ottawa’s downtown district.
