Ain't nobody here but us chickens

The Toronto Star asks police to step up in the Dorian Barton beating case:
The silence surrounding this case makes a mockery of the appeals for information that police routinely issue to the public. Police regularly send out photos of suspects and ask civilians for help identifying them. They call on the public’s sense of civic responsibility and simple justice, and ask them to do the right thing. In the Barton case, police are showing they believe that basic expectation of citizenship does not apply to them . . . It’s up to the chief — or at least one courageous officer — to step up and answer the question: Who is the man in the photo?
An honourable person would come forward himself, without forcing any of his fellow officers to identify him... .oh, sorry, we're talking about the G20 police thugs here, I forgot.
