Anonymous people in military fatigues snatch a protester during the G20 protests - video

Although I don't support the protesters this video of people in military fatigues driving up and snatching a protester, bundling him into an unmarked car and then driving off, looks like a new low in democratic freedoms.

Note the other protester with his hands up and off to the left, a riot policeman with his gun trained on them.

Its sounds like the snatchers came from some rent-an-army Blackwater type firm.

G20 security officials took responsibility Friday afternoon for a video that seemed to depict US troops ‘kidnapping’ a protester.

The military was not involved in the incident, but G20 security did acknowledge that “law enforcement officers from a multi-agency tactical response team” had detained a protester they said was believed to be vandalizing a store.

Officials with G20 security released the following statement to Raw Story and other media outlets:
... Quote:
Military members supporting the G20 Summit work with local law enforcement authorities but do not have the authority to make arrests. The individuals involved in the 9/24/09 arrest which has appeared online are law enforcement officers from a multi-agency tactical response team assigned to the security operations for the G20. It is not unusual for tactical team members to wear camouflaged fatigues. The type of fatigues the officers wear designates their unit affiliation.

Prior to the arrest, the officers observed this subject vandalizing a local business. Due to the hostile nature of the crowd, officer safety and the safety of the person under arrest, the subject was immediately removed from the area.
