Sympathy for slain UB student’s family
As a Canadian and a mother of three sons, I am sending my heartfelt sympathy to the family of the young man who was brutally murdered on the streets of Toronto (“Family in shock after University of Baltimore student, remembered as ’peacemaker,’ killed in Toronto attack,” Nov. 7). The Toronto police say he was doing nothing wrong when he was attacked, and that makes me feel ill. It is true, Toronto is having more crime than it used to, and we need more police presence around clubs. We have more guns now because they are coming across the border — but this wasn’t caused by guns. This was young thugs who will eventually be caught (“Two arrested in fatal attack on University of Baltimore student in Toronto,” Nov. 10). I, and others I have spoken to, are distressed that these young men come to Canada to celebrate, and one is beaten to death. We are so sorry, we apologize for this outrage. God bless.
