From what I've read, most of the "horror stories" regarding treatment while being arrested or detained are coming from journalists. These people stand to benefit from the publicity that the story gets them.
My friend is a camera man for a "Major" Canadian network (I know, it's an oxymororn) however; he went, filmed, and came home - no issues.
It also seems like, of those interviewed, nobody was doing anything wrong, just minding their own business, then got attacked by police. BS!
