  1. My God! For ills could get four years for what he has done? Not near enough time. As I have said before, when first veiwed the video the next day, this was overkill. High on extra you, Sammy Yatim didn't have a snowball's chance in hell of surviving.

    As a DSW, we are faced with possible violence every day from people we support with violent tendancies. We do not carry guns, we are taught Non Crisis Intervention. What Forcillo did here was use "Power Over". Yatim had a knife, not a gun. If he would have had a gun, shooting Yatim would have been a totally different outcome. Even then, the first three shots would have been enough.

    The distance alone between Yatim and the officers outside of the streetcar, the police were safe. We have seen it many times before where a couple of Officers have taken down a person with a knife with no one dying. They possible could have even talked him down even though Yatim was not in his right mind at the time.

    I give much credit to our Officers that are courageous enough to not waste a life.

    In my mind, Forcillo is a coward. While at a seminar for people with psychological disabilities, we were told that there are Officers trained to handle these situations calmly and strategically. There are many people out there with mental health issues and that number is growing. Knife verses gun...no contest! I hope Forcillo does time and four years is not enough!
  2. @Suz58 Don't know why it is printing things twice?
  3. @StuG This is an articl about Rob and that is what I am commenting on, sounds like a legitimate question to me!

  5. Curious how Robbie drops out of the Mayorial race due to health reasons, and that is not going to affect him in council how?

  7. I can handle Robby having a seat in council, but you can be sure that his bully brother will be will be in the background coaching him.
    Although I would have preferred neither of the corrupt brothers in, back to Deco Dougie!
    This is definitely a start in the right direction! Bye bye Dougie!

    Tory has his work cut out for him, undoing what has been done by the two brothers. If he can pull even some of it off, hopefully, Ford nation will be a distant echo!
  8. Congratulations Mr Tory! Now Toronto can gin the respect and reputation they once had.
  9. RIP CPL Cirillo.
    Lest we forget!
  10. @StuG For the sake of Toronto, I sincerely hope so StuG!
    I guess it is all pretty much said and done now but four more years of any Ford would be a sad state for Toronto.
    When I speak about Ford, I speak about all of them because you don't just get one, you get them all, with their..... predjudices, deceit, bullying, pouting, lack of compassion & manipulation.
    The only concern of the Ford Family is Deco Labels. Anyone that thinks they care about Toronto, needs to revisit that!

    Good luck Toronto! I hope you see John Tory as your next mayor and no Rob Ford in council. Maybe he can restore the respect that Toronto as a city in Canada deserves. As we are seeing in today's age, circuses are being faded out for cruelty, the Ford circus should be no different!
