Nobody is fooled by Toronto Police's token victim

Adam Nobody, whose arrest and injuries during a G20 summit protest this summer led to charges against a Toronto police officer, says he's "grateful to know that finally somebody has been held accountable."

Const. Babak Andalib-Goortani was charged Tuesday with assault with a weapon.

Nobody, among about 1,000 people arrested during the protest-ridden two-day summit, suffered a broken nose and a fracture below his right eye on June 26 outside the Ontario legislature...

..."It's a reassuring fact knowing that accountability has been laid on somebody," Nobody said Wednesday on CBC's Metro Morning.

Please dear God, don't be fooled by this bone you've been thrown by the police. Nobody, but nobody should fall for such an obvious ploy.

Unfortunately, some are falling for it...

...SIU spokesman Frank Phillips confirmed the Nobody case is now closed — unless, as happened the last time around, “there is other material evidence to come forward.”
