The City of Steel-Police Dominate the G20 in Pittsburgh



JasiriX-copsWhen we crossed the bridge into downtown Pittsburgh, Friday September 25 the last day of the G-20 summit, we thought we were going to see thousands of protesters. What we saw were thousands of police officers lining the street in full riot gear. Pittsburgh said it was bringing in 4,000 additional cops and I think they all were downtown on Friday. There had to be a cop for every protester. As you can see police were equipped with tear gas and shotguns. Because of the war-like atmosphere I decided to use as song I wrote called, “City of Steel” to provide the narration.
