You've seen it portrayed a hundred times. A hit goes down. Police sirens blare. Within minutes a description hits the airwaves. The shooter's on the run and the police and public, aided by the media, are on the lookout!
But that's fiction. In 21st cc. Toronto it takes about a day to figure out how to issue a press release on what the perp looks like.
Why the foot dragging?
Why haven't the police issued a description of the shooter and why haven't the media asked why they haven't? Working on polishing a PC press release? Want to give the guy a fightin' chance to get away? Don't want to offend the sensibilities of the white community (assuming he's white)?
One thing seems certain. The safety and security of the community is not the paramount concern in 21st cc. Toronto police work.
Shame on the Toronto police, and shame on a complicit media.
