Curiously absent...

Was any description of the shooters...

Shots rang out at a Chinese food restaurant in the city's west end Wednesday night, leaving one man with a wound to his groin.

Toronto Police say the gunfire erupted at Cho Ming's Restaurant, near Jane St. and Lawrence Ave. W., at about 8 p.m.

Emergency Task Force officers flooded the Black Creek area looking for two or three men seen fleeing from the area, possibly on bicycles.
Maybe it's some sort of "broad spectrum" of society thing again.

I guess half a story is better than nothing, huh?


FROM THE COMMENTS: It's not always that way
They said the man then tried to seize another vehicle from a female motorist. When that attempt failed, he fled again on foot.

The suspect is described as a white male with shoulder-length, black, greasy hair. He has bad acne and was wearing a long dark coat.

Have a look at the Toronto Police's news releases on their web site. Look at the number of charges laid when firearms are involved and notice how many relate to firearms possesion after a ban on possesion has been imposed (convicted criminals or accused criminals out on bail for other crimes being charged again) and knowingly possesing an unregistered weapon (Yes Mr Miller that handgun ban will work).
The laws are already there, they just need to be enforced with the criminals being jailed.

I believe there is a policy not to publish a description when the perpetrators are "the" visible minority.

The worst is the Star, of course. No racial description in any shooting crime, but:
