Cop charged with murder for shooting perpetrator nine times for exposing his penis.

Apparently the cop was so traumatized by seeing the penis exposed like that, the gun just went off nine times.

See the video below

Do you have a link to a reputable news source that can put what we're watching in context? The video is poor quality and doesn't show much.

That is the best video you are going to get R1

He showed off his penis, the cop panicked and shot the guy nine times.

Why did he expose his penis? That seems very odd to me? What was he doing in the empty streetcar?

You're not answering the question you were asked.

Yes, what R4 said. I specifically asked for "a link to a reputable news source that can put what we're watching in context". I did not ask for a better video.

If the police shot a man 9 times for any reason, the media would be all over it. Where's the link?

It had nothing to do with his penis. The guy refused to drop the knife. He was probably out of his mind or on drugs. They should not have killed him.

The original lazy pile of shit is the OP, for not posting a link to a news story that explains what we're looking at, which is also a well-known trolling technique, as most people with brains can recognize. Post something out of context, practice some creative writing that is short on facts but immediately ramps up the emotions, then ignore requests for objective background information. This is Trolling 101. Not saying the story isn't true, but...that's the point to asking for a news story. We'd like to know for sure that its true and maybe get a little more info, too.

Anyone got a good link? I am not doing a google search on my fucking iPhone.

Killing a man alone, in an empty streetcar? Is this the human equivalent of shooting fish in a barrel? What am I saying, of COURSE it is! And suspended with pay too? How jolly.

by Anonymousreply 1008/19/2013

So I took the shotgun off the shelf, and I fired nine warning shots.

Into his head.

Oh, poor pitiful r8, doesn't want to do a Google search on his iPhone.

You stupid lazy fuck, do your own fucking search! Stop asking others to do your work for you. And if you went to the link r6 so generously provided in spite of your assholery, you'd find all the "independent verification" you need.

R12, have a drink and a lie-down, hon.

No penis exposure was involved. Here's a link to the news story. All you have to do is Google search using keywords: "toronto cop charged with murder" for a whole slew of news links about this shooting.

What really happened is a punk teen apparently exposed a knife to a cop on an empty bus. The cop shot the little son of a bitch dead with 9 bullets. The cop got charged with second-degree murda.

That's it. No penis shit.

Did he shoot the guy in the dick nine times?

by Anonymousreply 1508/19/2013

He tasered him after he shot him? WTF

Was this in Cicero?

That penis had a hoodie on it!

Not according to eye witnesses at the scene

Jessica Doyle remembers Yatim walking right past her, knife in hand, aboard the streetcar where he died, seemingly oblivious to her presence.

When Doyle saw Yatim, the knife was in his right hand and his left held his exposed genitals.

“To be honest, the first thing that crossed my mind, based on him holding a knife and his penis, was that he wasn’t mentally stable,” said Doyle.

Sloppy reporting by Washington Post for 'omitting' this fact.

BTW all the other witness say the same thing. He had exposed himself.

I fully support this.

by Anonymousreply 2108/20/2013

Well you know, it's the PENIS THING and all. A lotta uptight people when it comes to the almighty penis. Thems gets all nervous and fidgety having to cope with talk about the penis, let alone write an important factor in a news story concerning it.

When I was a kid, cops would come and pick up the blathering, drunken crazy people and cart them off to the state looney bin. Now there's no more state looney bin, so cops shoot them. Oh what a great society we are.

by Anonymousreply 2308/20/2013

The headline is a lie. He was shot for wielding a knife. All of the eyewitnesses say he appeared mentally unstable.

He was not, in any way, shot "for exposing his penis". He may very well been exposing his penis, but he was not shot for that fact. He may also have been ranting, wearing soiled clothing and possibly spitting at people. He wasn't shot for those reasons, either. He was shot for waving a deadly weapon around in a crowded public space.

This is why people ask for links. The OP deliberately presented this story in a very sensational and inaccurate way. He made it sound like this guy flashed his dick or masturbated in public and that led directly to him being shot. That was clearly not the case. A mentally ill person brandished a knife in an enclosed space packed with people. He didn't submit when police surrounded him with guns drawn, and he was shot. Whether his penis was exposed is not really relevant. The real issues at hand are law enforcement's use of deadly force and societal treatment of the mentally ill. But of course on DL it boils down to "his dick was exposed".

In other news, WTF is R12's damage?

by Anonymousreply 2408/20/2013

r24 clarified it, thanks.

by Anonymousreply 2508/20/2013

Was the public transportation vehicle full of people or not? Most stories say everyone BUT the suspect got out of the vehicle, leaving the suspect alone. Why shoot a man who was no threat to anyone, but himself(maybe?) They could've closed the doors, preventing his escape, and let more level-headed people deal with the situation. Not one person there ever heard of tear gas? If the suspect WAS alone, then shooting him was totally uncalled for. Should we guess how many high 5's he got for his "bravery"?

by Anonymousreply 2608/20/2013

No one's disputing it was excessive force.

How do you know? Were you there? You've spoken to the officer?

One thing is for certain. He did expose his penis, he was shot NINE Times by the officer.

Those facts are NOT in dispute.

Well the cop wasn't yelling "drop the penis" now was he?

There was nothing to drop cause it wasn't erect.

Poor guy didn't even get credit for a stiffy.

He had it coming!

(with apologies to R11)

"How do you know? Were you there? You've spoken to the officer?"

How do YOU know the cop shot him because he was so traumatized by the sight of a male penis? Were you there? You've spoken to the officer?

I didn't think so. So why don't you shut the fuck up?

by Anonymousreply 3308/21/2013

The sad thing about this is the cop is still suspended **with pay**, even after being formally charged.

That is beyond bullshit.
