Number 1... with a bullet

Following a weekend of bloodshed, with four, possibly five homicides in just three days, Toronto's murder count is nearly on par with that of the entire Year of the Gun.

The most recent blood was shed from 18-year-old Delane Daley, shot dead just before 8 p.m. yesterday on Driftwood Ave. near Jane and Finch.

UPDATE: Live and don't learn
It was just three months ago that Delane Daley was riddled with gunfire and somehow managed to survive.

But the 18-year-old's refusal to stay away from the Jane and Finch neighbourhood where he grew up, despite the urgings of his mother and others who cared about him, finally caught up with him Sunday night with a bullet to the head.

He said it was too soon to know if the murder of the young man, known as "Spooks" or "Spooky" to his friends, was connected to the attempt on his life in August.

The article says he turned himself around because of a basketball program - and this led to his shooting death? Shouldn't Mayor Moron be squawking about shutting down all the basketball programs?

What are the odds that this guy's a thug criminal who got what he deserved despite the post-death-what-a-great-guy bullshit?

At least it's one less thug on our streets.

but having said that, he has left loved ones behind. It's them that I feel for.

When are our youth ever going to learn that violence doesn't SOLVE issues.
