So a graffiti raid leads to a charge of $500,000 in damages “not including graffiti?” For hurting Kinder Morgan’s feelings, perhaps? The abject servitude of the VPD to corporate interests is now so obvious that they don’t even bother trying to hide it.
Why don’t they grab that guy who’s going around spray-painting “JOAN CUSACK” everywhere? But they probably never heard of her.

On June 3rd, 2014, Vancouver Police staged a “guns-drawn” raid against a house of known indigenous and anarchist opponents to the energy policies of the central government and its corporate sponsors.
The ostensible reason for the raid was given as the search for graffiti materials believed to be tied to an ongoing “no pipelines” tagging campaign. One person was arrested, but released without charges or conditions.
The Vancouver Police Department returned on June 12 at around 9am with a warrant to take a DNA blood sample from the accused. The accused was again released without charges. There has been no info on the result of the DNA blood sample nearly 5 months after.
