Breaking - Tragedy: A car crash took place outside a migrant shelter in the border city, and police reportedly think it may have been intentional. Unclear if the suspect is: a fellow migrant / or someone that targeted them with domestic radical ties / or a lunatic / or just an accident. This follows yesterday's mall gun attack that claimed the lives of 9 people: https://www.nytimes.com/2023/05/06/us/allen-mall-texas-shooting.html The debate on guns continues online. Now, in my view, the theories over this story will make it even uglier.One can read the comments on outside news websites to get a picture. Both suspects have not been identified just yet unless I am not up to date. It is a tragedy for the State.
Toronto police have arrested a suspect in connection with two “random attacks” on the subway earlier this week. Brandonn Sevilla-Zelaya, 25, of Toronto, was arrested on Saturday and has been charged with robbery, assault causing bodily harm and uttering threat. Police say Sevilla-Zelaya is accused of attacking two passengers on the subway at Kennedy Station. The first incident happened on Dec. 15, at around 10 p.m., when the suspect allegedly approached a male passenger and began attacking him with unprovoked punches. Roughly an hour later, the suspect approached a female passenger on the subway again at Kennedy Station, and began attacking her by shaking her, police said. The suspect then allegedly stole her headphones and threatened her. The charges against Sevilla-Zelaya have not been proven in court. He is scheduled to appear at Old City Hall Saturday morning. The incidents follow a number of recent violent acts on the subway system. Last week, 31-year-old Vanessa Kurpiewska was stabbed to death near High Park Station, and in another incident a Toronto Transit Commission operator was assaulted and robbed at the Long Branch Loop in Etobicoke. https://www.cp24.com/news/suspect-arrested-after-two-random-attacks-on-toronto-subway-1.6199172 Also in July --> A woman has died nearly a month after being set on fire at Kipling station, also in Toronto. --- --> I sometimes take the public transit in a major city in Canada, seen my fair share, 1 story in particular was when one gentleman boarded a bus, I was only a few stations away from home, I already could picture myself listening to some jazz but this gentleman decided to join the bus. At one point randomly this person decided to take out an object and proceeded to say that he will do harm. The people that were up front jumped like chickens. I was taught to not move so focused my attention in the phone. Was way on the back. The bus driver did not say a word. The gentleman then proceeded to head out to the street and threaten the initial occupants of the bus. He then proceeded to cross the street. Some passengers returned in the bus. Have no idea if a report was filled. The shocking part is how people were not really talking about what just happened. Just another day. --- --> Is hard to say what the solutions are. The shelter system is full, the mental hospitals were tried in the past, is the way society is. When the economy is not well, more people live in the public transit out of desperation however that is not an excuse for criminal behaviour. What are some solutions? Tougher laws? More housing?
I'm not talking about Harper, Mulroney, Martin or any one politician. I am talking about any and all politicians who uses their position to conceal felony crimes by having files sealed or investigations derailed, or refusing to fund an inquiry. Because they have authorities to control and manipulate investigative agencies and regulatory bodies and bureaus, they effectively can get away with a lot of graft and corruption. This is especially true when they can hand-pick the heads of these agencies who then run interference for them if their are "irregularites". So, since they have this unique ability to delay and derail investigations, should we not have a special law that eliminates he statute of limitations for their crimes, or at least do not start the clock until they leave office? A good example is the Schreiber scandal. Mulroney could not be criminally prosecuted because the statute of limitations expired. But we did not learn of the accusations for years because he made damn sure everything was so well hidden. I thnk such a law might make these pols realize that their impunity is only temporary and they might actually be held legally responsible for their criminal adventures - eventually. Politicians that are lawyers and know how to manuever the legal system and shop judges are even more likely to get away with super crimes. What do you guys think?
