That, combined with the judicious use of Tasers instead of guns, will hopefully lower the overall rate of death and carnage inflicted upon the public by our protectors!
At least that’s what a new report commissioned by Toronto Police Chief hopes! (Toronto police Chief Bill Blair commissioned the report last year after the death of a teenager shot by an officer on an empty streetcar sparked a public outcry over police use of force.)
The release of the 346-page report came just days ahead of the one-year anniversary of 18-year-old Sammy Yatim’s death, and amid a lawsuit by the teen’s family against the officer who shot him and another who Tasered him as he lay dying.
Apparently, reports of people having “near-death” experiences go back to antiquity folks, only instead of walking towards a bright light, these people said they walked toward a campfire!

Now here’s something ya don’t see everyday!
1057885-Royalty-Free-Clip-Art-Illustration-Of-A-Hairy-Nude-Shy-Man-Covering-Himself-Up-With-His-ArmsWaitress Nancy Sansevieri was still laughing after police released surveillance video Wednesday showing three naked men stealing 60 hamburgers from Doc’s Beach House in Bonita Beach. Seems they broke in during the dead of night and made off with all the hamburger paddies.
Doc’s general manager Lou Bangert told the News-Press of Fort Myers ( that he’s never witnessed such a crime in the restaurant’s 27-year history. Thieves have broken in and taken money from the cash register, but he says no one has ever slammed through a door completely naked looking for beef.
The waitress has dubbed the trio of naked hamburger thieves who broke into an eatery “dumb, dumber and dumbest.”
The United Nations Human Rights Council is considering whether to investigate Israel for “War Crimes!”
In a conflict started, and perpetrated by Hamas, (A terrorist group) some of the member States, including Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Cameroon, Nigeria, Senegal, China, Cuba, Egypt, Slovenia and Bosnia & Herzegovina have suggested that Israel, (The regions only democracy) was guilty of war crimes for bombing locations that Hamas was populating with human shields!
Israel, meanwhile, has refused to dignify that with an answer!
Seems Hewlett-Packard and Palm have a webOS app that would estimate the size of male genitals.
Well folks, last February, rock-and-roll legend Chubby Checker sued the companies, asking for $500,000 while claiming the third-party app called the Chubby Checker “adversely affects Chubby Checker’s brand and value.”
(The app itself, which was first released in 2006, would estimate penis length from whatever shoe size was inputted.)
The lawsuit was settled this week and Chubby was so happy he immediately got a hard on ………………….., and proceeded to check it! (I could have sworn he was dead!)
In a last ditch effort to make some serious cash before he retires, award-winning scientist, environmentalist and CBC broadcaster David Suzuki is enlisting the talents of Canadians like musicians Neil Young, Feist, and Barenaked Ladies and author Margaret Atwood in a campaign and speaking tour to change Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
In what is being billed as possibly Suzuki’s last national speaking tour, The Blue Dot Tour will bring a changing lineup of homegrown performers, artists and leaders to 20 Canadian communities starting this September.
The goal of the concert/speaking series —​ as expressed in this promotional video — is citizen engagement and the ultimate aim of having “the right to breathe fresh air, drink clean water and eat healthy food” added to the Charter.
