“The blue wall of protection wasn’t enough. It wasn’t enough to save Const. Babak Andalib-Goortani from becoming the first Toronto cop convicted for using excessive force on the G20 weekend three years ago. It wasn’t enough to prevent him from facing a prison sentence for assault with a weapon… No doubt he was expecting to be acquitted just like Glenn Waddell, the only other cop who has been tried for assaulting protesters during the G20. After all, even the chief had defended him, calling Nobody an armed criminal at one point, a statement he later had to retract.” – Michele Mandel, Toronto Sun, Sept. 12th 2013.
