    My thoughts exactly.

    She uses that cell phone a lot.

    No, it's not just you.

    An all-powerful State protecting its interests in the face of the People's displeasure is what it is.

    History has shown it often blows sideways in ways both intended and unintended. (Planned thuggery to incite riots doesn't help ... and that goes for all elements in such encounters.)

    Notice all of the zip ties in pic #8?

    I hope the government doesn't start deploying this kind of force at our Tea Parties.

    They will, the moment such gatherings are perceived as an overt threat, or when it's decided such gatherings have gone far enough. Of course.

    Equal protection under the law, though some are more "equal" than others.

    Ah, yes. The well-protected aristocracy. Got to love it. Hundreds of guns, in a cordon around them. We should all be asking the question of why it's all needed ... what policies and realities make them believe they require such distance and protection from the People.

    I am just trying to gather and put photos into one place of a monumental and historic event for Pittsburgh.

    Many things were a real first for the city as a result of the G20 Summit.

    Such as it being the first time in Pittsburgh history that all three rivers (The "Mon" The "Al" & The "O") were closed simultaneously to all river traffic except for Coast Guard gun boats.

    The first time that we have had snipers positioned on rooftops in Downtown PGH.

    Remember that the actual original estimate of protesters was expected to be 30 to 35 thousand.
    That number dwindled incrementally as the summit date approached.

    Plans had to be made for the worst case scenario based on Previous G8 type events where extreme violence was rampant...inclusive of looting and the burning of cars and buildings and attacks on Police.

    Also it was not the "permitted" protesters that were present that were of much major concern.

    It was the far more radical and violent protesters that were supposed to show up but, ultimately did not show up due to the preemptive news reports of the amazing numbers of Police that would be present.

    Much of the Police action and "Show Of Force" was intended to be visually deterring in nature and the Police were very well restrained even when directly taunted.


    More Later...I actually have to go to work today. Yes, I Know...It's Sunday.

    The city that employs me hosted an Economic Summit, before it became known as the G7 (or G8) Summit. We were prepared for a bit of trouble, but these were the days before either 9-11-01 or the massive demonstrations that subsequently started plaguing these events. There certainly WERE, however, lots of "big guns" kept in staging areas, away from public view.

    As for the dogs' muzzles, I am pretty sure those would be removed at the right moment, had it been necessary. The canine version of "friendly fire" is NOT pretty; you don't want your numbers diminished by dog bites before the party starts. When those dogs exit the handlers' cars, they are AMPED. All those bite-able targets, are just targets to them. Good guy, bad guy, all taste good!

    Edited to add: I just bought my own helmet. The guys assigned to "SRG" and such duties are issued helmets, but all too often we street patrol guys are suddenly caught up in something, or must fill the gaps on short notice at a big event. Of course, this being the 21st Century, I went with Level IIIa, not a "riot" helmet. It looks like most of the officers/troopers in the photos are wearing similar ballistic protection.

    Exactly what I was thinking...

    The Pittsburgh police seem to carry a lot more equipment than most departments do for community policing, or has policing just gotten a lot more militarized.
