You can't use Tasers...

...you MUST use Tasers... I wish the lunatic left would make up its uber-elastic hive mind...

It’s pretty clear that there are many who want a piece of poor Sammy Yatim now that he’s dead and can be made into a cause or useful instrument.
poor little knife-wielding crazy
Worse, the only justice they have anything to do with is the sort preferred by the Queen in Alice in Wonderland. “No! No!” she cried. “Sentence first — verdict afterwards.”
The fact that young Mr Yatim had been exposing himself and brandishing a knife in a very public venue continues to be seen as irrelevant. The fact that Mr Yatim had, at the moment he was shot, charged at police, screaming like a madman with a knife in his hand is similarly glossed over.

Perhaps they'll have to rewrite the procedural manual at the Ontario Police College. Apparently, coppers are supposed to wait for the club to land, the gun to fire, or the knife to penetrate their person. Until that's cleared up, the next time you encounter a raving lunatic with a knife, I suggest you call Andre Marin or Alok Mukherjee.

RELATED: Just a kid with a knife, right?
While trying to help this apparent victim, Constable Garrett was suddenly attacked with a knife and suffered a mortal wound to his throat. Although dying, Constable Garrett somehow managed to draw his firearm and pursue his attacker, firing off his entire clip of 17 bullets. Constable Garrett was able to wound his murderer with his last shot before he succumbed to his injury.
Which of the two endings above do you prefer?

Normally I'm with you 100% but the CCTV video of the incident does not show police being charged or in any kind of danger. The kid was up the steps standing behind the drivers seat. Police were standing 4 or 5 meters away from the door of the tram.

"anon says... video of the incident does not show police being charged"

that's funny... that's not it says here...

Unlike previously obscured footage of the moment Yatim was shot, the security camera footage shows him briskly moving forward to the point where he is almost in line with the driver’s cab door, before his knees buckle and he falls backwards.

in this video, you can hear the cops telling him not to take one step closer... just before he rushes them with his knife.

and like trayvon... after the initial hysteria started to subside, it turns out sammy was no beaver cleaver after all...

"The 18-year-old had left his home in June after disagreements with his father over smoking pot and not having a steady job, friends say."

"Another school friend, who asked not to be identified, said Yatim carried a knife everywhere and even bragged about owning a gun."


consider the fact that his own father tossed him out over his drug use and his less than stellar lifestyle.

all of this will come out at trial. i'm willing to wait for that before i send a man to jail for 20 years. are you?

It's time to take a serious look at our insane Immigration and "FREE" health care system because this is not the first case where Immigrants have brought into canada a relative with a mental Illness to dump on our Health care costs and burden the Police with being Social Workers with guns. Remember that "Tourist" in BC that died at the Airport by security forces, well, the first news report I read was that the mans Mother told the truth that she worried about her sons Mental health problem and thought she could sneak him into canada in the guise of a Tourist and THEN harbour him to not leave. Next she said he could get help via our FREE health care system. The media had also turned this case into a warm and fuzzy story of a victim of the fascists security cops in BC's airport. CUPE will NEVER attack the bogus Refugees scamming our system because the bigger the Welfare Industrial Complex, the more CUPE jobs and money for the Union bosses and workers.

"anon says... the mans Mother told the truth that she worried about her sons Mental health problem and thought she could sneak him into canada in the guise of a Tourist and THEN harbour him to not leave."

yup... an angle that got very little airplay. this guy had mental health issues out the wazoo...

"How on God's green earth does his 71 year old mother, with a whole 11 years in Canada, get to sponsor him as an immigrant at all, let alone a refugee?"

"If she has the financial resource, certainly let her sponsor him as a regular immigrant, and guarantee that her son will not immediately be a burden on the welfare state."

here's as close as the msm got to saying it... this guy was "lenny" from of mice and men"...

"A big, gentle man who saw his main social connection and closest friend as his mother. The last two years, he had been unemployed, collecting state benefits."

and what about bus decapitator/cannibal, vince li...

"Apparently... three and a half years ago... the cops had brought now infamous decapitator-of-strangers Vincent Li to a Toronto hospital, where he was supposed to be on a 14 day psych-hold while he got his head read. It seems that ol' Vince had other plans and just meandered away."

the government doesn't care. just pray you don't run into one of these troubled fellows in a dark alley.

You know, that Vince Li thing happened close to the Peking Olympics.
I remember hearing a story about a Chinese man who randomly stabbed an Olympic tourist to death.
And I wonder, not just that there is some common denominator, if there are other crazy Chinese nationals in our midst.
And I wonder if they were made that way on purpose by their State.

i'd be willing to settle for our own government not importing folks with obvious mental health issues.
