Watch: Eighteen-year-old detainee recounts experience of being held inside G8/20 police cage for 26 hours

On his first day as a resident of Toronto, this person was a bystander during a protest when he was caught with his boyfriend in a mass arrest for "breaching the peace." Held for approximately 26 hours, the eighteen-year-old was let out at 3 a.m. on Monday, June 28, 2010, where rabbletv caught up with him for his story.
