So Dalton... is it just possible that...

...more b-ball courts isn't really the answer?

-- TORONTO -- A squabble on a basketball court turned driveby shooting has become the city's 35th homicide. Shortly after 8 p.m. on Wednesday, police went to a call in the Gilder Drive and Eglinton Avenue East area.

Twenty-two-year-old Zabi Mojadidi was taken to hospital with multiple gunshot wounds to the chest. He died shortly after 1 a.m. on Thursday at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

When the bullets started to fly, there were children playing in the playground neighbouring the court -- a fact that distressed local residents.

You know Neo, you do a real fine and upstanding job at pointing out the horrific acts of history, and sujjesting what needs to done to these thugs that are caught.

Where you tend to fall down is suggesting what we should do to avoid /reduce these types of crimes.

"nonny-mouse jeers... Where you tend to fall down is suggesting what we should do to avoid /reduce these types of crimes."

sorry, nonny... it's not my teenage son running around mindlessly maiming & killing other human beings.

maybe that's because my child was raised in a loving home by two involved parents... and not in a culture rife with single-parent teenage baby mamas... or where irrational retribution & violence is seen as an attribute of manhood.... or in a second or third generation welfare ghetto.

i've done my part to encourage a productive, civil society... what about you?

what exactly is it that you are "sujjesting"(sic)?

Perhaps these misguided youths should be housed with Nonny and he or she could show them them the error of their ways with a good talking to.

as someone who fled hogtown 8 years ago... i'm thinking it isn't really up to me to rein in toronto's recent epidemic of violence.

hey... maybe nonny can pony up his ingenious solution.

It's obvious there was only 'a' basketball court, a single one, so that's the problem. They should pave over the children's playground that's beside that court and build another b-ball court, their problems would be solved for all time.

Avoid/reduce these types of crimes?
Stop paying stupid women for having babies with bums, they'll think twice about who they allow to impregnate them.

yup... as long as there are never-ending financial incentives to bang out babies... they will come.

and let's dump that whole "young offenders" yip-yap... you're old enough to pick up a gun or a knife... you're old enough to take the consequences.
