Adam Abdi, a Somali-Canadian, has been charged with 48 offences, which includes 7 counts of attempted murder.
From January 9th to January 21st, five people were randomly shot in Toronto. Although fortunately none of the shots were fatal, one of the victims were seriously injured.
According to Global News, none of the shootings were fatal, but at least one of the victims had serious injuries. In one instance, the suspect allegedly shot at a 19-year-old man and a 15-year-old girl standing in a hallway of a building. In another incident, he fired at a 35-year-old man and his four-year-old girl who were sitting in a parked vehicle in the Finch Avenue West and Islington Avenue area. Both occupants were unharmed.”
Media Staying Quiet
I don’t know about you, but this seems to me like it should have been plastered all over social media and every news paper. And yes, I think a word from our “leaders” would be in order. But I guess that’s wishful thinking because no one — and i mean no ones — is talking about this. I suppose a story involving an alleged hijab attack is more deserving of our Prime Minister’s words than a random shooting spree…
It’s not a stretch of the imagination to argue that many Canadians are harboring significant concerns about our questionable immigration and refugee system – and if it turns out that this gun wielding maniac came in to Canada through our flawed and weak system, Canadians deserve to know it.
At any rate, this is a story clearly deserving of much more attention than it’s currently generated. I mean what else could be more news worthy than a shooting spree in Canada’s largest city?
Abdi is obviously an extremely dangerous and unpredictable man who needs to spend hard time behind bars, but I look forward to learning more about what drove him to such senseless violence and discovering any possible connections to Islamic terrorist organizations.
