The man in custody was recently released from five years in prison and sources said what happened Saturday was retribution.The "argument", huh? An argument with, well... bullets... right? Hmmm, perhaps the 'gentleman' in question was a tad 'overwrought'... a little 'peeved' perchance?
"When this guy was released it was predicted something would happen," a source said, adding the sentence was related to 2005 Summer of Gun activities.
Sources tell the Sun there had been a shooting earlier Saturday in Alexandra Park and "THE ARGUMENT" moved to the Eaton Centre.
Perhaps the Toronto Police 'Service' should cut down on the number of media relations officers it apparently has... and drop a few more street coppers back onto the front lines.
And somebody help me out here... if they saw this thing coming, why was this less than civics-minded (you don't get 5 years in a Canadian prison for jaywalking) convict allowed to run around without some sort of oversight?
RELATED: Okay... let's all respect his privacy
They've had all that video & now arrested this guy... but nobody gets to know who he is.
Trayvon™ !!Canadians... we're a sensitive lot... in some cases.
We’ve seen hundreds of pictures of gay cannibal Luke Magnotta, but so far not even a crappy “police artist” composite or official police description of yesterday’s shooting suspect.
FROM THE COMMENTS:
"Given the poor quality of the shooting, obviously the poor man wasn't allowed adequate access to the prison shooting gallery. The least we can do is to ensure that those released from prison can shoot straight."**********
LAST WORD: Relax Toronto... it's just business
It seems the gangbangers were just carving out their territories...
A meeting over gang turf that turned violent is believed to be behind the brazen downtown shooting at the Eaton Centre, police sources said following the arrest of a suspect.Hmmm, ask yourself Torontonians... which gang owns your hood... and, by extension... your lives?
One man, Ahmed Hassan, 24, was killed and six others hit by bullets.
The suspect and Mr. Hassan were meeting at the food court to discuss “turf arrangement” but matters got out of hand and shots were fired.
And while we're here... what are the criteria for a "brazen" downtown shooting? Are they so frequent that people don't really notice the "ordinary" ones?
