Toronto police cleared in shooting death

19 Mai 2017

More than a year after a man was shot dead by Toronto police following a tense standoff, Ontario’s police watchdog has concluded no charges will be laid against the three officers who opened fire, finding they shot in self-defence.

Alexander Wettlaufer, 21, died after he was shot three times on March 13, 2016, in a ravine in Villaways Park in North York.

Collection of race data in police use-of-force cases depends on province, Toronto chief says

19 Mai 2017

Amid growing calls for the collection and release of race-based statistics on police encounters, the Toronto Police Service says it is constrained by provincial rules dictating what identifying information must be recorded every time an officer uses force against a civilian.

In a report filed in advance of next week’s police board meeting, Toronto police chief Mark Saunders acknowledges the expectation his force will collect and report on demographic data “will almost certainly expand in the near future.”

Firearm charge dropped after Toronto officer says he meant to fire gun

11 Mai 2017

A Toronto police officer accused of careless use of a firearm had his charge withdrawn after testifying he in fact intentionally shot a man in the arm at a midtown hotel last year following an unsuccessful undercover operation.

Three months after Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) announced it charged Const. John De Sousa in connection with a February 2016 shooting, Crown prosecutor Peter Scrutton told court Tuesday that charge was “premised on the accidental discharge of the officer’s service weapon” during an arrest.

Toronto cop guilty of assault made Sunshine List while suspended

26 Avril 2017

An incident in which an on-duty Toronto police sergeant assaulted a man in a Scarborough parking lot and then drove away, leaving the victim collapsed on the ground, came to light after an account from a bystander and Toronto Community Housing Corporation surveillance footage, according to recently filed court documents.

Last week, Toronto police Sgt. Robert Goudie pleaded guilty to assaulting Hamza Sheikh, then 47, outside the man’s residence in October 2015, an incident that began with Goudie approaching Sheikh believing he had been driving while impaired.

Ontario police forces share carding data with Mounties, CSIS

24 Avril 2017

Ontario’s counterterrorism plan directs local and provincial police to share relevant information gleaned from street checks — or “carding” encounters — with Canada’s intelligence agency and the RCMP, according to the written plan reviewed by the Star.

Municipal police services “should ensure” that intelligence they gather “is shared regularly with key partners,” including the Criminal Intelligence Service Ontario, the Ontario Provincial Police’s anti-terrorism section, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) and the RCMP, according to the 2014 document — the most recent version of the plan — that was posted online by two small Ontario police services, then apparently removed.

Activist’s protest against practice of ‘carding’ derails Toronto police board meeting

21 Avril 2017

A meeting of the Toronto Police Services Board came to an abrupt end Thursday afternoon when journalist and activist Desmond Cole admonished board members for failing to destroy carding data, then stalled the proceedings by refusing to leave the speaker’s chair.

Cole had been making a public deputation about the controversial police practice of “carding” when he announced that he would launch an immediate protest if the board did not agree to put stricter constraints on police access to the data collected through the “illicit” practice.

Toronto cop who fired 23 bullets into car docked a week’s pay

12 Avril 2017

The Toronto officer convicted for misconduct after firing 23 rounds into a stationary car in the Distillery District has been sentenced to seven days’ docked pay at a police disciplinary tribunal.

Last fall, Const. Tash Baiati pleaded guilty to one count of insubordination in the incident, which took place on Sept. 16, 2015, when he opened fire, at midday, into the hood of a stolen silver sedan near Parliament St. and Mill St. following a car chase.

Baiati, a Toronto police officer of eight years, was captured on video repeatedly firing his gun into the engine compartment of a car driven by Edward Skotnicki, 60, who has a lengthy criminal record and a history of dangerous car chases, although officers did not know his identity at the time.

Ontario court awards $80,000 to man who was punched, cuffed in case of racial profiling

12 Avril 2017

An Ontario court has delivered a strong rebuke of what it described as the continuing problem of racial profiling by police officers, finding that a man was stopped by Toronto police in 2011 because of his race and was then assaulted.

Mutaz Elmardy was appealing the decision of a trial judge who awarded him $27,000 in 2015, finding that he had been unlawfully arrested, searched and assaulted by an officer. But Justice Frederick Myers did not find there was evidence Elmardy had been racially profiled.
