Police tactics during G-20 summit deserve coverage


There was a serious situation at University of Pittsburgh last week in regards to the G-20 conference. The city was under de facto martial law and University of Pittsburgh students were tear-gassed and beaten for no reason other than being on the street.

No news station is covering these events, and the only way I’ve heard of it is from my friends that go there.

YouTube has videos of what’s taking place and it’s some of the most disturbing footage I’ve ever seen.

This story needs to be made more public. I have no idea why this isn’t on the news. Look into it on YouTube — simply put in “G20 Pittsburgh Riots.” The videos are horrifying. The Daily Tar Heel should consider making this a story.
