Please, Mayor Miller...

...you have to hurry up... and shut down all those evil target ranges.

-- TORONTO -- A 20-year-old man was fighting for his life last night after he was shot in the head in front of hundreds of people while handing out flyers at Jamaica Day celebrations.

Jamaica Day organizer Karen Jenkins said the 18-year-old festival can't be responsible for what happens outside the park.

"This happened outside our gates and on the street," Jenkins said. "We are sorry that this has happened but we can't be accountable for what goes on outside."
And... just down the road a ways...
A suspected gang member was shot in the leg yesterday for apparently walking on turf frequented by a rival gang in the city's west end.

Detectives said the 25-year-old man was also shot in the hand by a gunman around 12:34 a.m. in the Stewart Smith Dr.-Hearst Circle area near the Jane St. and Trethewey Dr.

What I'm most surprised about is how poor a shot our Olympian target shooters have.
Head, hand, leg? Everyone knows that chest shots are what you're aiming for.

Sadly, it looks like Canada will garner no medals in Beijing with target shooting like that.

farmers, hunters and target shooters... totally off the hook, yet again.
