Confidence That Hosting G-20 Is A Great Idea : D=90

My compliments to Indexed.

Pittsburgh: POG G20 Resistance Update #1 I liked what they wrote about You’ve Got to Show Respect to Get Respect, and I liked what they said about external fundraisers.

Protests Set for Pittsburgh (BOPM press release)

UK Wombles: See You In The Rustbelt

G-20 Term of the Day: Kettling (verb) Also known as containment or corralling. Kettling is a police tactic for the management of large crowds during demonstrations or protests. It involves the formation of large cordons of police officers who then move to contain a crowd within a limited area. Protesters are prevented from leaving the area for several hours; as a result, detainees can be denied access to food, water and toilet facilities for a long period. The ostensible aim is to leave would-be violent protesters too tired to do anything but want to go home.

P-G Headline: City could need 4,000 police officers money quote: About 10,000 officers were on duty for the London G-20 meeting in April. What's the difference?
