Remember this Idiot!!

Owen Smith (pictured) was released from jail in February 2009 in relation to the brazen murder of Abdikarim Abdikarim in Jungle last year. He was released from jail as witnesses feared testifying against him and he walked free out of the Milton prison yelling "Freedom's a Must".

Well the fool, who I would have hoped would change his life around decided to go rob a store down in Yorkville back in July. Putting guns to the heads of the store clerks and terrorizing them. He tried to get the clerks to open the safe to which they could not access, once the owner arrived he ran out of the store.

Owen Smith was finally arrested on Aug. 21 in Lindylou Park at the northwest corner of Weston Rd. and Lanyard Rd.

This menace to society deserves to stay in jail.

New Trial Ordered in Simeon Peter Murder Trial

Simeon Peter (pictured) was gunned down in 2004 and the man currently on trial for his murder will face a new trial. Ontario's highest court quashed the jury verdict due to a teardrop tattoo that could have affected the outcome. Warren Abbey will stand trial once again for first degree murder charges in the death of Peter.

The panel agreed with the Crown's argument that the trial judge should not have excluded evidence – collected from five witnesses – relating to its (teardrop tattoo) potential meaning. The killing happened during a time when two Toronto street gangs, the Malvern Crew and the Galloway Boys, were fighting a bloody turf war.

Peter died on Jan. 8, 2004 after being shot three times while walking with his girlfriend in the Malvern district of Scarborough, in Toronto's east end. The trial judge excluded all proposed testimony relating to the tattoo because he said it was too prejudicial.

Sentence in the Murder of David Latchana

A judge ruled that Jason Hay should spend 7 years in prison for his role in the death of David Latchana. At 21 year old, Hay already had a criminal record with 50 convictions, and at the time of the killing he was on probation for the fifth time. Demar Duntin actually did the shooting and is serving a life sentence with the possibility of parole in 15 years.

As the judge read the sentence to him Hay swore violently at the judge after he imposed the sentence, noting,"I'll be home in two years." The judge decided not to give him the usual credit of two months for every month already served in jail. Hay must serve another five years and three months behind bars, with no parole for at least 2 1/2 years.

Here's a previous link to this case, check out the comments left. Really serious stuff being said.

5 Shootings in the GTA Last Night, 1 Fatal

The two shootings last night have now turned into 5. One man has died making it the 34th homicide for 2009.

I reported earlier how two teenagers around 6:45pm were shot in the Teesdale area (picture) located in the East York region. A shootout between two groups of teens occurred causing a 17 year to be shot in the face and a 16 year old shot twice in his stomach.
About two hours earlier before that, a teenage girl was shot in the leg on Trethewey Dr.
Around 9pm, a 26 year old man took a shot to the face around Kipling and Finch. He is expected to be okay as when paramedics arrived he was conscious and breathing.

Last night around 10:30 police responded to a man suffering from gunshot wounds. Police are now saying it looks like playing with a firearm caused this man's death. A gun may have accidentally discharged, hitting him in the chest. The suspect and the victims girlfriend drove him to the hospital. Clearly a stupid act is what caused this man to lose his life.

Homicide #33 - Nerio Valdez


Nerio Valdez, 17 years of age lay in a hydro field for several days before his body was discovered. An anonymous tipster is what led police to the body located in North Etobicoke. His lifeless body was found in bushes in the field that runs between a residential and industrial area near Martin Grove Rd. and Steeles Ave. W. at around 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Residents on Cabernet Circle recalled hearing four gunshots in the area Thursday evening. One woman told police she saw car headlights coming from the industrial area. Police searched the area Saturday evening after an anonymous 911 caller reported police might find something in the area. "The description of the caller was very vague, and indicated that the incident was in a wooded area," Police said. He said officers searched the hydro field for close to two hours until it was too dark and found nothing at that time.

Police have video evidence showing Nerio getting into an argument with several men before he was shot, police are currently combing the areas for additional information into the death of this young man. I just wonder why his family didn't realize he was missing. The boy is only 17 and if I had a 17 year old that hasn't been home in 2 days, I would wonder where he is.

Homicide #32- Wesler Fabien
