Police loom over Byron Sonne's victory party

Uh-oh. A tweet from Toronto notes that weirdly, there are 4 cop cars outside #hacklabto as they are having a party for #freebyron. HackLabTo is the Kensington Market hackerspace that Byron Sonne (who was acquitted yesterday on all counts related to his emperor-wears-no-clothesery of the Toronto G20 summit in 2010) is affiliated with. Update: they're gone now.

    The partiers should have invited the cops in.

    That’s what happens if you have a hackerspace in a room above a donut shop.

    I’m sure people in countries known for police corruption are familiar with this behavior.

    To be fair, its an area of town theres often a lot of police presence, and its more likely they just wanted to check that shits not going down (with media etc too it could turn into a circus) an not trying to intimidate attendees or send a subtextual message.
