Too many social workers...

...not enough cops...yikers

At approximately 11:07 p.m. Wednesday, a man was gunned down at one of Toronto’s busiest intersections, Yonge-Dundas Square, and the suspects got away. CityNews has exclusively obtained an email that purportedly shows a Toronto police officer from 51 division sounding the alarm over what they perceived to be a lack of police on city streets — less than one hour before the fatal shooting.

According to the email, allegedly sent shortly before 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, all five police cruisers working in 51 Division were “tied up,” with 31 calls still pending.

So far in 2018, gun violence alone in downtown Toronto has increased by over 150 per cent compared to this time last year.
But that's Wednesdays news... what's happening tonight?
A male victim believed to be in his late teens has been taken to a trauma centre in critical condition after a shooting in the area of Weston Road and Sheppard Avenue at around 10:45 p.m. Thursday.

RELATED: It could've been worse...
Toronto police are hunting a two-man execution team believed to be behind separate assassination attempts. Both bids failed, one of which was thanks to an astounding gun malfunction at the final moment.

Investigators are trying to trace the hooded duo who were filmed by CCTV attempting to gun down two different men in the Regent Park neighborhood of the city on Wednesday night.

LAST WORD: CTV says, "let's blame global warming"
"As temperatures rise in Canada’s largest city so has the number of gun-related crimes."

In today's news we were informed that great britain issued a terror warning. 'The threat for acts of extreme right terrorism is immanent. Also increased risk for acts of terrorism by muslims.' Instantly followed with a report of howany acts per party in a certain time frame... needless to say the numbers were inverted. Only 4 from extreme right compared to a couple more from our muslim friends.

What a harmonious age we live in. Where all the people get along peacefully. :)
