Can anybody confirm that this is, in fact, G20 in Pittsburgh?


BREAKING NEWS-Military Making Arrest at G-20 - YouTube

It's obvious they weren't U.S. military. They were either local or state LE.

Anyone who has served would notice that they didn't have the sleeves of their utilities (CBU's) rolled up according to military dress regulations.

The procedure used putting the individual in the back seat of the car is LE procedure not military.

All three of those wearing these cammies, there was no uniformity with what they were wearing, which is what the military is suppose to be about.

Sure, but regardless of their fashion statements, it's pretty clear that this is not a mexican drug cartel kidnapping, nor are they regular civilians engaged in your run-of-the-mill type of gangland retaliation style of kidnapping. It's not an arrest. Local or state LE? Doubtful. I don't believe the demonstrators were anti-state. There's no local or state emphasis at a G20 convention.

It's the feds, and assuming what you say is true, that if this is the military they all have to be wearing matching garments and must have their sleeves rolled up, then it's the feds using their illegal private army like they've already done before without ever being held accountable.

I know this was 4 years ago, and therefore old news and forgotten, but I sure would like to know what happened to that peaceful demonstrator.
