Once again, the Toronto "Red" Star...

...attempts to mythologise a dangerous sociopath...

"Michael Eligon Jr. remains mostly a man of mystery several days after he was fatally shot in a confrontation with police while wearing a hospital gown on an east-end street, blocks from the hospital."
The implication here is that, somehow... this poor guy was taken down by a police death squad... but even the rainbows & unicorns journos at the Star have to include a few facts.
"After leaving the hospital, the 5-foot-11, 160-pound man is believed to have injured someone (the Globe & Mail has a witness saying Eligon stabbed a shopper and injured a police officer) inside a nearby convenience store before trying to hijack a car."

"Shortly after, neighbours on nearby Milverton Blvd. reported that a man in a hospital gown was trying to break into a house at the back door."
I'm not sure what the Star finds so mysterious... we're talkin' straightforward cause & effect here.

If ever there was such a thing as "a good shoot"... this was it...
"Eligon was carrying two pairs of scissors, according to witnesses, and kept walking toward the officers with his hands outstretched despite being ordered to stop as police backed up."
Professional journalists... your moral & intellectual superiors.

LAST WORD: Ask a Justice Minister
OTTAWA - There's no appetite in Canada for vigilante justice but the occasional warning shot over the head of a thief or trespasser may have its time and place, Justice Minister Rob Nicholson agreed Tuesday.

Whining - "nnnnNNNNnnnnn.....why didn't they just shoot him in the leeegggggg?"

Peruse the comments on this story. That typical left-tard comment is inevitable everytime a story is run about about a shooting like this.

"michael says... why didn't they just shoot him in the leeegggggg?"

all the pinkos have obviously been watching too much tv.

the short answer is... the police are trained to shoot center mass until the threat is stopped.

moral of the story... don't go around stabbing people or menacing police officers with a weapon.

it can be bad for your health.

"sammy says... the police-hating msm"

ctv national news led tonight with that car accident that killed 11 migrant farm workers. in fact, they had two separate segments, by two different reporters, just so they could pound their multicultural agenda up everybody's ass a nickel at a time. funny how the driver of the other vehicle got hardly any mention at all.

not a word about the crash near trenton yesterday that killed two people... even though it involved someone driving the wrong way on the 401.

of course... neither of these two people... or the two rcmp officers... were from peru.

all their stories have to push that rainbows & unicorn agenda.

i miss actual news.

At 20' with your opponent armed with a knife, if your pistol is not in your hand with the opponent framed in the sights, you're going to get cut, possibly killed. You're opponent may also die but that is not the agenda. It's called shoot until the thread is gone.

I wish people knew how difficult it is to shoot someone in the leg or arm.
When your adrenline is through the roof and you are faced with shoot or be stabbed to death your lucky if you can keep your hand steady enough to hit centre mass.
Hollywood has done policing such a disservice.

It is unfortunate that the police are prevented by the SIU from telling their side of the story.
It is also unfortunate that the Toronto Star is only interested in sensational headlines and chooses to interview witnesses that have no idea how dangerous edge weapons are. You can't use pepper spray against an attacker with an edged weapon. Its not always effective. It can blow back into the officers eyes and it's useful range is within the lethal zone of a knife wielding attacker.

like i said, despite the red star and their man of mystery b.s. -- this was the epitome of a "good shoot".

if police couldn't, under these circumstances, take this guy down... they might as well leave their firearms at the station.
