We all know the tragic story of yet another Toronto shooting that has left two dead and, at last count, 21 injured including a 22 month old toddler.
We are already hearing cries for stiffer laws and penalties when it comes to gun crimes and their criminals.
Citizens are demanding the police and politicians do something, although exactly what is open for debate.
However the solution doesn’t lie within the police community or government but in all of our communities.
We often ask how a person can open fire in a crowded space or even kill another.
Perhaps we should be asking ourselves why this person thinks they can get away with it without being identified; after all there are plenty of witnesses.
Why not just walk right to jail?
The answer is one of two things…
Either they don’t fear prosecution in our justice system or they don’t think anyone will identify them even in a crowed party.
It’s like the kid who keeps acting up because there are no repercussions.
We all have to ‘speak up’ when it comes to crime.
Don’t forget there are more good guys than bad guys.
Until every one in the community does their part to solve this problem, it will never be fixed.
