That "romantic Vancouver kissing couple"? They had been beaten by cops!
Video from AlterNet. Via Digby.
I had no idea, hadn't followed closely, mostly picked up on the MCM (Mainstream Corporate Media) going into its "awww, so cute" mode, while also kinda focusing on her hitched up skirt and the close to crotch shot the stations kept zooming in on.
I had no idea they'd been pummeled by police.
