Black Lives Matter a welcome force for change: DiManno

20 Avril 2016

Black lives matter, of course they do. It shouldn’t have taken a worldwide movement to accentuate the fact that blacks are disproportionately killed, over-policed and racially profiled.

The crime is that it should have to be said at all, over and over again.

There’s not much for Canadians to feel smug about, merely because the death tables of blacks killed by law enforcement pale, even in ratio terms, compared to the U.S. According to a Washington Post analysis of data — 986 slain by law enforcement in total last year — blacks were killed at three times the rate of whites, and 40 per cent of them were unarmed when confronted by cops.

Attorney General has yet to read SIU report on Loku shooting — let alone make it public

20 Avril 2016

A month after the Special Investigations Unit cleared the Toronto police officer who shot and killed Andrew Loku, the attorney general says she has not yet read the secret report that details how that decision was made.

Madeleine Meilleur said her chief of staff, Shane Gonsalves, has a copy and that she will obtain it and read it. But asked Monday if she could make the report public afterwards, she said: “You know what, I don’t think so.”

Inquest hears of final hours of man shot dead by Toronto police

06 Avril 2016

One day before he was shot dead by Toronto police, Ian Pryce showed up unannounced on the doorstep of his former neighbour “erratic,” “desperate” and clearly in need of help.

“I’ve never seen him so antsy. I was really concerned for him at that time,” said Cindy Marshall, who befriended a young Pryce when he lived next door to her in about 2010. “He looked a lot different. He’d lost a lot of weight . . . I didn’t recognize him.”

Andrew Loku police shooting: Why can't we know who pulled the trigger?

03 Avril 2016

In December 1990, a young burglary suspect was shot five times in a King St. E alleyway by an undercover Metro Toronto police officer.

It was among the first cases taken on by the nascent Special Investigations Unit, the civilian agency formed that same year to probe serious injury or deaths involving police. In the hours after the shooting, the SIU summoned OPP investigators to the scene, then promptly released basic information to the public — including the name of the officer who pulled the trigger.

Members of the union, including president Fred Hahn, joined the Black Lives Matter demonstration in what Hahn described as a show of "solidarity against oppression."

Black Lives Matter deliver lawsuit to police for Toronto mother

A slew of about 40 Black Lives Matter demonstrators chanted their way into the Toronto Police headquarters Thursday evening and announced a lawsuit.

The plaintiff, Jean Montaque, is a black mother who alleges her home was illegally raided and searched by three Toronto officers in October 2013, human rights lawyer Saron Gebresellassi said. According to her statement of claim, contents of which have not been proven in court, the officers claimed they were responding to a 911 call from her apartment, which she says was impossible because she had been out taking her kids to school at the time.
