United States Of AMERIKA!!!111!!! UPDATE: Cops In Camo? UPDATE x2 And Bumped: They Are Cops

Above The Story Update: They are cops. The College Politico has the confirmation.

Original Post:
Drudge is highlighting a video purporting to show members of the armed forces abducting protesters at the G20 summit in Pittsburgh.

Language warning for an F Bomb at the end.

Ed at Hot Air is skeptical.

So am I, to say the least.

First, really?

Second, the 'soldiers' (who are unarmed and have no hand cuffs) come from one direction and the scary unmarked car comes from another. Where the hell did those 'soldiers' come from? It wasn't the car they got into. Were they just milling around the crowd? With no protective gear or helmets?

Third, hello! BusHitler is gone, Hope, Change and Unicorns are in.

Fourth, commenters are pointing out the mismatched and outdated uniforms.

I'm going with the performance art idea as well. 9 out 10 for the idea, 2 out of 10 for the execution.

Cui Bono? Alex Jones, The Illuminati and of course, the Jews.

UPDATE: Bob Owens at Confederate Yankee makes the case these are Pennsylvania State Police Officers making an arrest.

He has a screen grab of what appears to be a holster, which would address one of my points that they were unarmed, which made it seem like theater.

So updated conclusion...not military as Drudge claims but maybe not theater either.
