Greedy shoe companies making select sneakers needlessly exclusive paired together with consumer exuberance, desperation, and American gun culture on Saturday long enough to cost one would-be alleged robber his life. Shoppers waiting in line to purchase the latest incarnation of LeBron James’ signature shoe outside Atlanta were being harassed by a reported pickpocket until one patron decided to pull a gun out and shoot the as-yet unidentified man in what is being considered a move motivated by self-defense.

Witnesses told one man in line outside Wish, a clothing and shoe store on Moreland Avenue, pulled out a gun and shot the would-be robber.
The shooter then got back in line, according to Channel 2 Action News.
[first lines]
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: So your boy's name was what?
Kid: Snot.
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: Called the guy "Snot"?
Kid: Snot Boogie.
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: God. Snot Boogie. He like the name?
Kid: What?
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: Snot Boogie?
[the kid does not answer]
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: This kid, whose mama went to the trouble to christen him Omar Isaiah Betts... You know, he forgets his jacket, his nose starts running and some asshole, instead of giving him a Kleenex, he calls him "Snot". So he's Snot forever. Doesn't seem fair.
Kid: Life just be that way, I guess.
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: So, who shot Snot?
Kid: I ain't goin' to no court... Mothafucka didn't have to put no cap in him though.
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: Definitely not.
Kid: He coulda just whooped his ass like we always whoop his ass.
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: I agree with you.
Kid: He killed Snot. Snot been doing the same shit since I don't know how long. You don't kill a man over some bullshit. I'm sayin', every Friday night in an alley behind the Cut Rate, we rollin' bones, you know? I mean all them boys, we roll till late.
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: Alley crap game, right?
Kid: Like every time, Snot, he'd fade a few shooters, play it out till the pot's deep. Snatch and run.
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: What, every time?
Kid: Couldn't help hisself.
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: Let me understand. Every Friday night, you and your boys are shootin? crap, right? And every Friday night, your pal Snot Boogie... he'd wait till there's cash on the ground and he'd grab it and run away? You let him do that?
Kid: We'd catch him and beat his ass but ain't nobody ever go past that.
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: I've gotta ask you: if every time Snot Boogie would grab the money and run away... why'd you even let him in the game?
Kid: What?
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: Well, if every time, Snot Boogie stole the money, why'd you let him play?
Kid: Got to. It's America, man.

Toronto police criticized for shooting of ‘cornered’ man brandishing a knife on empty streetcar | National Post


I am normally supportive of police, but I think this was a clear case of police brutality. How many shots needed to be fired at this kid?

Although this is bad it's just another poor example of policing like the G20 and the events after what happened in Boston.

This city is filled with lunatics

Proposed TTC uniform colours draw negative response from sports fans - The Globe and Mail

Quote:
For a certain type of zealous sports fan, it’s not clear if it’d be worse to resemble a serial killer or a supporter of an opposing team. Critics say a proposed new uniform for the TTC managed to do both.The design provoked an “overwhelming” negative response from unhappy staff, according to union head Bob Kinnear, and prompted TTC CEO Andy Byford to stress Tuesday that no final decisions had been made.At issue is an innocuous-seeming shirt, with a horizontal pattern of red and blue.

It was proposed as part of the transit services push to modernize uniforms that dates back nearly two decades, but sparked push-back from staff.Mr. Kinnear explained by phone Tuesday that some people were saying that the design was reminiscent of the fictional serial killer Freddy Krueger. And he heard many concerns that the presentation would be too casual. “It just doesn’t look professional,” he said.But the most heated response came over a perceived slight to the hometown Maple Leafs. It seems that if you take a couple of primary colours and add a long-running hockey rivalry you can generate one of the strangest controversies to hit the TTC in recent memory.“Take it from a Leaf fan, [the new shirt] is a Montreal Canadiens’ blue and a Montreal Canadiens’ red,” said Mr. Kinnear, president of ATU local 113.That was enough to strike a nerve at Toronto’s transit commission among hockey fans who have watched the Habs lift the Stanley Cup 10 times since the Leafs last won the NHL title.

The controversy, which began after images of the proposed uniform were leaked to the National Post, had enough legs to prompt a lengthy statement Tuesday from TTC head Andy Byford.“Let me set the record straight so that you know the facts rather than the speculation,” he told employees. “What you may have seen and what is depicted in the media is nothing more than a proposal. A final design has not been agreed upon, and these images are not reflective of what will ultimately be issued.”Mr. Byford went on to note that red is being incorporated into the uniform to reflect the colour of Canada’s flag and because it is a traditional colour for the TTC, whose original subways were nicknamed Red Rockets for their paint scheme. However, he added, he personally favours a predominantly blue uniform.

The CEO assured staff that there would be more consultation and that he wants them to be “happy and proud” to wear the uniform eventually chosen. But he conceded that it would be impossible to please everyone.Probably wise. If the colours that appear on numerous flags, sports uniforms and corporate branding can raise such a ruckus, it’s hard to imagine any final choice that will be universally accepted.

Actually, it's Raptors red and leafs blue. A perfect toronto sports shirt if only our city knew we had more than one sport being played here.

A bit off topic, have you guys noticed that they start charging you to view articles online? They have this at TheStar, Globe and Mail, and the National Post.

This is complete BS. They must have caught on that nobody buys their newspapers because news is all online.

i don't know if i'd say it's BS. Media is changing, and obviously people aren't buying papers like they used to anymore. Companies gotta do something.
