Bright lights, big city......

...a little penetrating trauma...

One of three Toronto men stabbed in a fracas outside a City of Vaughan bar early Saturday died later in hospital.

Toronto Police, whose jurisdiction is right on the border with Steeles Ave., received a 911 emergency call just after 3 a.m. about people injured outside Coconuts Restaurant and Lounge and alerted York colleagues.

Paramedics rushed the three wounded men to hospital from the parking lot at Keele St. and Steeles Ave. The dead man was identified as Roger Samaroo, 26.
Couple drinks, a little dancing & the ginsu shuffle... the fun just never stops.

In the first incident, a man was shot in the leg outside a home in a residential area around Finch and Kipling Aves.

About two hours later, a 29-year-old man was stabbed in the chest in a Kendelton Dr. highrise, in the Finch Ave.-Albion Rd. area.
Yikers.

26, that is way too young to die. I say we should all head for the hills and farms. That is eco-friendly and way less dangerous, plus all farmers know how to actually use a gun.

"tj says... I think I'm hearing banjos"

while you can run into trouble anywhere you go... i'll take rural life over cities any time.

in larger urban centers, there is a growing glorification of violence that goes far beyond some messed up, lovesick teen going after his girlfriend.

this is really sad. and to think I received a txt msg from him at 3:14am...I was probably txting as as he was getting stabbed
must have just before he got into the altercation that took his life.
