  1. Right on! They arrested a 17yr old who can’t be tried as an adult. Even if found guilty, he’ll get 2 years less a day plus time served and a clean record when released. Courts have to change the youth act. If a child can leave home at age 16 then youth act should reflect the same. The youth act should protect only those under the age of 16, in my opinion. Other than that, the rest of them should be tried as adults and do the time for the crime.

  2. Thanks for the hard work uncovering and sharing the facts associated with this incident. Rest assured the TBPS “tofu gobbling” director of miscommunications wouldn’t be nearly as forthcoming.
    Sounds like Papassay and the victim may have spilled their guts. I hope so.
    I suspect the snake they arrested is likely from one of Toronto’s lowlife gangs. Using youth to do their dirty work because our inept justice system will give them a lecture and put them back on the streets due to being under 18. The pr!ck should be drawn and quartered.
    Dumpster Bay police services need to make this town very unwelcoming for this slime to come and infect the city. Declare an emergency. Implement martial law. Kick down doors and kick in teeth. Maybe take out a few of these murderous b@stards along the way. That will get the message out loud and clear the these lice will not be tolerated.
