Look out!!  He’s got a…SHRIEEEEEK!                                                                                                                 …HAMMER!!!:

Two men were apprehended by security officers around 4 p.m. at Commerce Court near King and Bay streets. One of them allegedly had a hammer concealed on him, said Const. Tony Vella with the Toronto Police.

Vella said it is not clear if the two men were part of the Occupy Toronto protest, and charges for carrying a concealed weapon are pending against the person who was reportedly carrying the hammer.

I didn’t know downtown Toronto was a Hammer-Free Zone.  And by the way, how did the cops know about that hammer?  They check the Life-Saving Hammer Registry?

In all seriousness.  I don’t know how long the Occupy Toronto protesters intend to stay down there, but if it’s more than a few days this little episode might be a portent of the kind of amped-up-on-Red-Bull-and-Wakeups aggression they can expect from the Law.

A hammer?  Really??

    They’ll display it next to the LARP armour and weapons from G20 again, declaring that it was obviously going to be used to stake tents into the ground against city ordinances and also, too, any crime committed in Toronto during the occupation is due to the occupation, therefore, dirty hippies.

    Is it just me having flashbacks to the protests of the 1960s and the dismissive media treatment of activists, protests and sit-ins? The police tactics haven’t changed since 1968, that’s for sure. I’m surprised there hasn’t been a dismissal this time of all ‘older’ people as just hippies of the first cycle. It’s like the regressives in auTHORitay have been having their own nostalgia for baby boomer times they missed out on, praying for the mythical compatriots of bigfoot and ogopogo, the monolithic HIPPY, to show up so they can sneer at them just like daddy did.

    No you’re not the only one… this is totally giving me deja vu.

    At least the cops back then were such squarejohns they were kind of funny. Now the undercover ones all take criminal psychology classes and they’ve figured out how to do Deep Cover and “blend in”… 😯

    But the guys in uniform haven’t changed one little bit: they are still the Donut-Eating Coffee-Swilling Nadir of Human Dumbness.

    I suggest you blame the whole episode on the pernicious influence of Pete Seeger and Lee Hayes, and maybe Peter, Paul and Mary.

Wait. What?
