Occupy Toronto: Strange arrest after man caught sniffing feet

Feet-sniffing: not welcome at Occupy Toronto

There are plenty of complaints out there about the Occupy Wall Street protesters: They are a bunch of hippies who have no real demands! They trashed Zuccotti Park and other protest sites around the country! They bang too loudly on their drums and clog the streets!

Next time, though, you feel like complaining about Occupy Wall Street, just remember it could be worse: This guy could be there.

There is video posted online on MRCTV.org of a man being apprehended by police at Occupy Toronto.

The person shooting the video can be heard telling police the man was in his tent, sniffing his girlfriend’s feet. He also tells police the man tried to get people in the tent to drink urine by telling them it was an energy drink. Even more disturbing is that he says the man took a sip, or “pretended” to take a sip, before trying to pass it to others.

It’s all very strange. At one point, you can hear what sounds like a woman (or an eagle!) screeching, and we’re assuming it’s someone’s ring tone — which is creepy.

Later, the man shooting the video suddenly remembers that the foot-sniffer handed him a knife earlier when he had asked for a pen. He races back to his tent to fetch it for police. On his way back to the officers, he is met by a group of people we can only assume are other protesters. He shows them the “knife” which actually appears to be a wine bottle opener with a corkscrew. Then the group debates whether or not to hand it over to police and the man shooting the video insists they must because it is “evidence.” There is some debate and then the “legal team” is mentioned before someone tells the man shooting the video that he has become a “conflict of interest” and the video ends.

So while there may be reports of arrests, drugs and anti-Semitism, at least at the protests here in the States, there has not yet been a foot-sniffer.
