UPDATE: Toronto Police Service reopens G20 assault case after the Star makes it look bad

Well, that was fast. This morning, the Toronto Star reported that even the roommate of the cop who allegedly assaulted Dorian Barton at the G20 summit failed to identify him; then, this afternoon, the Special Investigations Unit announced that it’s going to reopen the case. Turns out the Toronto Police Service is willing to provide some more information after all. We’re sure it’s just a coincidence that it came out on the same day as the Star’s front-page story—just like the last time.
