StreetlightInTheGhetto: I get what he was saying (the boy wasn't targeted), but that was a fun thought exercise in thinking when exactly a shot child wouldn't be innocent.


Some babies have it coming. And they know who they are!

Say, wasn't that psycho who butchered the dude on camera in Montreal a Toronto native? I know it probably isn't him, but I'm going to go ahead and hope it is because that would make a better story.

If Gecko45 had been on duty that day. This would have never happened.

more crime in Winnipeg and Vancouver than in Toronto

I don't doubt it, just always felt more like an American city to me than any other Canadian one.


Oh, ok, we'll just go with your gut feeling, then.

wow, you must be overwhelmed by your close call.
grab a seat and have the wife pour you a bourbon.

cnocnanrionnag: tuffsnake: Isn't there a Fark party there today?

Yes. Drew and about 10 of us Farkers were at a restaurant (WVRST) on King St. west, about a mile and a half west of the Eaton Centre. The news broke as a tweet from Blue Jays player Brett Lawrie who was, apparently, near the shooting.

That had to be scary. Usually you hear about random dismemberments in Canada, not random shootings.

Yeah, right. Probably end up shooting the pregnate trampled woman, and claim self defense.

I know that Winnipeg just about sucks in all terms but I would consider Vancouver a special case. In Vancouver it's (nearly) all gnags targeting each other. I do know that its gotten so bad that the police had a mandatory sit down with all the major players and told them in no uncertain terms to keep the colateral damage to a minimum (as in zero). Basically they told them to use bullets all they wanted but if they started using bombs then the police would end up jumping on them and landing with both feet.

I was in Toronto during a few of the games between the Blue Jays and the Chicago White Sox during the 1993 American league championship series. I was about 8000 feet from that mall, which back then was an old derelict apartment building and a low rent strip mall.
I feel numb. please hold me.
 
2012-06-03 12:23:18 AM  
I've been in that mall and food court (where the shooting took place) hundreds of times. As recently as a month or so ago. Scary stuff.

I'm not Canadian, I have no idea what that means.

Mrtraveler01: sure haven't: I always thought Toronto was kinda dangerous in certain areas.

And then I went to Detroit.

Seriously though, condolences to the victims' families. The difference between this and the US crime, is that in the US, people are pushed to do desperate things. Whereas up here, people try so hard and want so badly to be a real thug yo. It's so friggin pathetic. This wasn't born of some despair and downtrodden oppression. I will gaurantee it was a group of wannabe hardass losers wearing designer clothes wanting to be gangsta. F*cking idiots.

Sure is heading in that direction:

Toronto police chief Bill Blair described it as a targeted shooting in which bystanders were also hit.

"The nature of the wounds indicate this individual was targeted," he said.

And right in the middle of a busy shopping mall that attracts tons of tourists per year? I think they should just dump this guy into Lake Ontario once they find the shooter.


I live in Hamilton, grew up in Texas, and Canada is full of a bunch of p+++ies...fark man...they only gave that derp that killed tori stafford(nine year old girl) 25 years

/call me
//i haz the AID
 
2012-06-03 12:27:27 AM  
CSB time. I was there last saturday night and someone pulled out a ten inch blade (notice i used inch, not centimeter cause I'm American) I just got on the bus, and the driver just went crazy on the horn when he saw it which is apparently a signal that cops listen for as there were 2 squad cars there within seconds.

Kind of scary, and the concierge affirmed that their town isn't violent

So is this shooter the #2 most wanted in Canada

How you know this is not a shooting in america thread.. nobody brings up the colour of the shooter
 
2012-06-03 12:31:33 AM  
Damn ... I am rarely in Toronto but I was down there today. Was at Bay and Bloor ... so not that close to the Eaton's Center but still.

Rode the subway ... the shooter could have been on the same train as me :O.

We should have a pool to guess the race of the shooter.

It's the American way!

I can understand the feeling though. I've been in that mall too and it does feel a little chilling knowing something like that happened in a place that I've been to.

To think, I was thinking about heading down there after work today.

Wasn't the original poster being sarcastic? I was 2 miles away, 19 years ago, before the mall even existed...?

The whole thing seems so weird to me though.

Canada is listed 13th in the world in gun ownership per 100k citizens.

Was the shooter Tilda Swinton, perhaps?

I live in Toronto and have been in the mall countless times. Nothing really weird about it. Probably some idiot with no self esteem trying to impress his gang buddies.

From what I've read, that's looking like the case.

I still say we should just drop them in the middle of Lake Ontario

Why malls and schools? Killing high consentrations of people does nothing but restrict rights for the rest of the population. The government and media will always use such events as an excuse. Therefore, government and media corporations are the real targets, for they are the real reason why one would go batshiat crazy in the first place. Just sayin'

People inclined to shoot other people usually aren't thinking things through the way you are.
