I'm pretty sure this story is BS because they can't have guns in Toronto.

/politcal jabbing aside I'm sorry for the one who died and the others who were injured.

I don't understand how this happened. Doesn't Canada have strict gun control laws in place?

intelligent comment below: relcec: nepal has a significantly higher GINI than us and 1/2 homicide rate.
china has the same GINI as us a 1/4 of the homicides.
singapore has a not insignificantly higher GINI index than us and a homicide rate that is 1/10 of ours, and 4th lowest homicide rate in the entire world.

The only country that compares in population is China, and its real statistics are a mystery, not to be compared at all. They understate everything that might come across as negative.


relcec: it's a culture.

Your kinds code word for too many minorities



every time this comes up I go to pains to explain this has nothing to do with race. it's a cultural problem and this destructive culture is found in every race. I shout down the racist f*cks that try to make it about race. I did it in this very f*cking thread you asshole. if I thought this had anything to do with genetic predisposition or race I wouldn't have any problem saying that either, but it doesn't have the slightest thing to do with any of that. it has everything to do with the cultural people grow up in.

a variation of this bullshiat culture is found across the pond in the UK. specifically the chav culture found among the UK's white working class.
that culture is the reason that while the UK has a GINI coefficient that is significantly lower than that found america (read: the UK has a more equal distribution of wealth), they have a violent crime rate that is 4 times higher than ours1.

you're an asshole, you're fairly stupid, and you are also a race baiting troll who is just as f*cking bad as the racists that normally inhabit these threads. normally I would assume the reason you are denying this is actually a cultural problem despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary is because that would necessarily imply that the transgressors actually have some control over this state of affairs, and as you are a progressive who, like many other progressives, refuses to assign blame for modern day transgressions to groups of people that you consider historical victims deserving of your protection, you are willing to deny even the painfully obvious to avoid this conclusion.

but after observing your puddle deep analysis of every problem in the world, from big gulps to grand legal principles, and your unfortunate penchant for spewing worn out platitudes and cliches at all like so much mental diarrhea virtually on a daily basis, I know that you can't possibly have ever thought even so little about any subject ever in your life.

you're just aping excuses you've seen others put forth before you and, as many others do, crying racist when an actual argument would be appropriate. you're a f*cking parrot without even the very limited intellectual ability necessary to carry on a discussion of even this easily accessed topic on your own. you're not worth my time any longer, you amoeba brained cum stain.

______

1In the UK, there are 2,034 offenses per 100,000 people, way ahead of second-placed Austria with a rate of 1,677. The U.S. has a violence rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents, Canada 935, Australia 92 and South Africa 1,609.

ontariolightning: BroVinny: I don't understand how this happened. Doesn't Canada have strict gun control laws in place?

Yeah, but the odd mass shooting still happens, like anywhere.

Ontario & Quebec have the strictest gun control laws in Canada and are the safest provinces to live despite having nearly 21 million of the nearly 35 million citizens


The gun control laws do not vary by province. They are federal. Those who do not know, teach.

man metaphysical: I would have busted out my 9 so fast and capped his ass before he even shot anyone.


But then the joy of killing would kick in, and the news story would be about you, instead.

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.

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.

lack of warmth: I don't which makes me more sick. The random shooting or the pregnate woman being trampled by the runaway crowd. In my mind I just made it worse with thought of some young guy telling her "get out of the way fatso" before she fell. What happened to Canadians are always polite?

/I just can't handle someone running over a pregnate woman
//may everyone who touched her or stepped over should have a rough time sleeping tonight


You're either not too bright, or that is a brilliant troll.
