Never a Long Gun Registry around...

...when you really need one...
The hunt is on for two men, one of whom is believed to be armed and dangerous, after a shooting late Tuesday in the city's west end.

A 28-year-old man was walking in the area of Swansea Mews — a townhouse complex on the southwestern edge of High Park — around 10:45 p.m, Toronto Police said Wednesday.

Two men approached him, police said, and one pulled out a gun and opened fire.
No word yet, from Mayor Miller's office... on which gun club the shooter belonged to.

Hang on a sec... Swansea Mews... that sounds so familiar...
"A townhouse complex called Swansea Mews, in other words Toronto Housing."
Oh right... that's the taxpayer-subsidised gun club.

And, hells bells... if they can run Metropolitan Toronto according to EU dictates... what's up with France?

eu rules
The ultimatum from Brussels, in a letter to the French government from the European commission, upped the ante in the ferocious row over France's treatment of immigrant Gypsies, a dispute that hijacked a recent EU summit and saw insults traded over the second world war.

"France is not applying European law as it should," said Viviane Reding, the commissioner for justice and fundamental rights who sparked one of the worst rows in the EU for years this month.
And we'll be seeing the white flags in three... two... one...

The CBC spins yet another sad tale...
The victim was rushed to St. Michael's Hospital but died of his injuries. He was later identified by his friend Antonius Clarke as 26-year-old Eric Osawe. Osawe had spent some time in jail after high school, but was trying to clean up his act.
Geez... from the sounds of things... he wasn't trying all that hard...
Court records show Osawe was convicted of assault in 2004, for which he was given a suspended sentence and one-year probation. Last September, he was convicted of possession of a controlled substance and possession of stolen property. He spent a short time in jail and again, was given one-year probation.

Another man was seen being led from the building in handcuffs after the shooting. Police later identified the man as Ebony Osawe, 23 — Eric's younger brother. Ebony Osawe has been charged with possession of a restricted firearm with ammunition.
I gotta say, if that's "cleaning up your act"... I'd sure hate to see these two when they're out on a tear.


UPDATE: Cop now facing charges
A Toronto cop is now charged with manslaughter in the shooting death of a 26-year-old man during a raid in Etobicoke two months ago.

Const. David Cavanagh faces a manslaughter charge and is expected to appear in a College Park courtroom on Jan. 6, 2011.
