A man who refused change to a group of young panhandlers, then was attacked and stabbed repeatedly, died yesterday morning of his injuries.
After a night out in downtown Toronto with his friend, Ross Hammond, 32, was walking up Queen St. W. and Niagara St., near Trinity Bellwoods Park, when he was approached by four panhandlers in their early 20s.
A verbal confrontation quickly escalated into violence. Hammond was stabbed several times and his friend was physically assaulted.
“They (the panhandlers) were abusive, they were aggressive. Mr. Hammond and his friend took offence to it and it was a heated exchange and it certainly escalated very quickly,” said Toronto police homicide Detective Sgt. Gary Giroux. More here
And Now for the Rabble.ca take on this – note the Thread Title – Homeless stabbing in Toronto , let the Lefty dissembling begin!
Note how little effort is shown by many of the babblers to remember the real Victim and the Family, but also note that some sensible Babblers have come to the defense of the victim and the police. Let’s hope common sense wins the day on this thread (Yea I know, I may as well ask for a Pony while I’m dreamin). The sense of entitlement among many of the Babblers “defending this assault” is palpable.

At this point how exactly does this cop know what happened? Was he there? If this was a fight just between two different groups who were otherwise identical would this cop be saying this? Seems as though he’s already made up his mind about their guilt, I guess they should be thankful he didn’t just execute them on the spot.
Just so everybody is clear I have a good knowledge of some of the people involved and their history of mental illness. CAMH is just down the road and Trinity Bellwoods park used to be one of the safer parks for homeless kids to bed down in. That was until recently. That was until self righteous condo owners who are new to the neighbourhood have taken it upon themselves to “take out the trash” as one prick told me.
Seeing these same people eating over-priced salad at Fresh and embracing progressive politics as a lifestyle make me want to scream. Oh yes help the poor and the homeless as long as I don’t have to see them.
As a final insult these same pricks who complain of “Crack” addicts are themselves doing lines of coke in the bathrooms of posh private member clubs just a few blocks down on King St.
Ah the Left! Ya can’t tell the victims without a program!
