Putting the State on Trial

The Policing of Protest during the G20 Summit

When the G20 Summit was held in Toronto in 2010, people were shocked to see Canadian police officers acting in ways that appeared foreign and frightening. The riot gear, surveillance, mass arrests, and physical abuse of citizens were all indicative of an out-of-control policing operation. The conflict sparked widespread outrage and calls for a public inquiry, but to no avail. Putting the State on Trial provides a much-needed critical analysis of this event. This book shines a sharp light on policing, accountability, and an evolving legal relationship between the state and the citizenry.
