Chalk up another one

Spent casings littered the street outside a Subway restaurant just north of Jane St. and Eglinton Ave. W., where police said a man was a victim of a drive-by shooting on Denison Rd. E., around 8 p.m.

The man was shot six times in the lower body and several bullets hit a nearby house, Det. Gord McNeilly said at the scene.

Toronto... not as friendly as you might think...
A $50,000 reward has been offered in the murder investigation of a young man gunned down on a North York street last year.

"It was a very cold, wintery night and the streets were mostly empty except for passing vehicles," Borg said. "It was only when a TTC employee on a passing TTC bus saw what he believed was a person laying lifeless on a sidewalk that anyone stopped to help Shawn McLean. By then, Shawn's fate had already been determined."

Later, as police began canvassing the area, they discovered nearby residents had heard more than one gunshot echo around the scene, but none bothered to report them to police.

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"Now that Torontonians realize that there's no point in calling the police about gunfire, non-criminals should be allowed to have guns too."

WELCOME, YET AGAIN, READERS OF NOTED HUMANITARIAN CANADIAN CYNIC

Yes, yes, CC... we all know how kind & compassionate you are. Say, while we're at it... let's revisit your pet theory about those dastardly, evil Jews.

Hey... we could always get a second opinion from your "fellow cynic"... the mysterious "sjwalter".

And, of course, there's CC's magnum opus...

Remember Canadian Cynic's message to Wanda Watkins, whose son Lane was killed in Afghanistan?
"With all due respect, Wanda, fuck you and your grief. It's not the job of the rest of Canada to continue to let its soldiers die just so you can sleep better at night."
And, CC... bombarding my comment threads with dozens of stupid trolls... who exactly is that gonna impress?
I'm thinkin'... you might wanna tweak those meds again.
BOO!!!

well, one small consolation... when you see "canadian cynic" very publicly spitting up all over himself... it certainly confirms you're on the right side of the issue.

or, call me wacky... you could, as we decided in fall of 2001... simply leave the urban meatgrinder behind... and raise your kids in a more amicable environment.
