Dawg’s Blawg: Sergeant Pepper rides again

The police officer who saw nothing wrong in pepper-spraying reporters and non-violent protesters has been put in charge of security at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics: Sergeant Pepper Rides Again.

Guess who’s the senior planner for the so-called “Integrated Security Unit” being run by the RCMP on behalf of the Vancouver Olympics organizing committee (VANOC)?

Hugh Stewart. Yup, the sadistic cop who pepper-sprayed non-violent students–and a CBC cameraman–during the APEC protests in Vancouver in 1997. Doesn’t that just set the tone for policing before and during the games in 2010?

Hat tip to Dawg’s Blawg.
