Police beat journalist at G-20 summit in Toronto

A freelance journalist was beaten by police on June 26, 2010, as he was covering a demonstration related to the G-20 summit of world leaders in Toronto. Jesse Rosenfeld, a contributor to the opinion section of the Guardian online, later said in a press conference that Canadian police authorities attacked him after recognizing him as a "loud-mouthed kid" from previous demonstrations, and after noticing that the press credentials hanging around his neck did not include an official Canadian pass to cover the summit.
