Jane and Finch Chant Against Police Brutality

Jane and Finch gathered in front of 31 division this evening to try and put a end to the police brutality that is going on in their community. A community worker claims there's been this rise in levels of incidences and in terms of the alleged brutality.

Some people get their face put on hot police cars, my friend just got dragged by the handcuffs," charges a protester named Wondas. They chanted quietly and the police continue to state they investigate cases of police brutality thoroughly (yeah right). Hopefully this community can get what they're looking for but personally these police won't stop because who gonna stop them? Not their superiors, Why? because they're cops too. Cops will always protect cops.

Many of these young men that are beat up by cops don't even report it, so what's the point. I know many people, including my ex-boyfriend who was beat up by cops and in the end nothing was done. We just need to start walking with our cameras.

Altercation at Cederbrae

Police released a suspect they had and arrested 21 year old Jamaal Williams in the following incident.

Cederbrae Mall which is located in Scarborough saw violence erupt amongst a group of men this evening. Two men were stabbed outside a leather store in the mall and police managed to arrest one individual. A victim believed to be in his 20s was slashed across the throat, while a second man suffered cuts to the hand. Neither wound is serious and both are expected to be O.K. They're being treated for their injuries.

Cops are on the hunt for a male who is Black, 25, and 6' 3". Pretty much majority of black men in Toronto. I just hate these dumb descriptions, they make no sense. He was wearing a black coat, blue jeans and white sneakers.

First Guilty Verdict for Jane Creba

So I kept up to date on the Jane Creba murder trial day by day as it went by and we all know your innocent until proven guilty but in the end, if any of these boys get off, it'll be a shocker. I honestly believe not one of these men will beat this case. Even if they didn't pull the trigger or if they weren't involved, anyone that may have slightly just been in the area and charged with this young girls murder will not in my opinion be found innocent.

So my thoughts of course turned out to be true as the first suspect J.S.R, 20 years of age went to trial and learned his fait last week. J.S.R. appeared surprised as he stood in the prisoner's box and heard the jury foreperson declare him "guilty" of second-degree murder.

His is the first of three trials of nine males accused in the infamous Yonge St. slaying of the 15-year-old Riverdale Collegiate student. The jury also convicted J.S.R. of five weapons charges and two counts of aggravated assault in the wounding of two of the 12 males who faced off outside the Foot Locker store on crowded Yonge St., just north of the Eaton Centre.

Young Man Dies Fleeing Police

Stanley Badu (pictured), only 15 years old plunged 14 stories to his death this past Monday. Police believe he may have been involved in a break and enter, after receiving calls from a tenant in the building.

Police were responding to a break-and-enter call at 44 Willowridge Rd., near Martin Grove Rd. and Eglinton Ave. W., around 11 p.m. when they found the body of the teen at the front entrance of the building.

This building has seen a lot of violence in the past year alone. Last year the same situation happened where a 16 year old fell 26 stories to his death after a robbery attempt.
