Can We Talk?

Toronto’s Finest Keystone Kops

OK, so I wasn’t glued to the TV all weekend to see the G20 demonstrators.  I saw enough on the news each night.  I have only one question – where were these cops when the hooligans were breaking windows and burning cruisers?  I didn’t see any cops anywhere.  What, they all huddled somewhere safe?

I’m so disappointed.  I don’t want to hear any excuses about the “Black Bloc” and how they overwhelmed the cops.  Come on.  What do they teach you in Police School?  How to look swell in uniform?  You had all the right gear.  Why didn’t you shoot a few of those creeps?  What’s with using kid gloves on hooligans and bullying spectators?  You should be ashamed Bill Blair.  I think the police force should pay for damages done.  You were totally inept.

The Prosecution Of George W. Bush For Murder

About Vincent Bugliosi
Vincent Bugliosi received his law degree in 1964. In his career at the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, he successfully prosecuted 105 out of 106 felony jury trials, including 21 murder convictions without a single loss. His most famous trial, the Charles Manson case, became the basis of his true-crime classic, Helter Skelter , the biggest selling true-crime book in publishing history. Two of Bugliosi’s other true-crime books—And the Sea Will Tell and Outrage—also reached #1 on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list. No other American true-crime writer has ever had more than one book that achieved this ranking. His latest book, Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy , was also a New York Times bestseller, and is being made into a ten-part HBO miniseries, for which Tom Hanks will be a producer. Bugliosi lives with his wife of many years in Los Angeles.

Despite Mr. Bugliosi’s literary successes, the same publishing houses that would ordinarily vie for a Bugliosi book, passed on “The Prosecution Of George W. Bush For Murder” – a testament to the incivility of the Bush administration and the level of fear it engenders. Gratefully, Vanguard Press took the plunge. When someone asked Vince why corporate media and large corporate publishers ignored his book, he responded with: “The left is afraid of the right but the right’s not afraid of the left.”
