OT: Toronto Boxing Day Shooting

The more I learn about the Boxing Day shooting in Toronto, the more it sickens me:

On Tuesday, a downtown drug dealer familiar with the incident identified the man by his street name, TD, and said the shooting was the product of a turf war between rival drug gangs.

"It's going to get worse now," said the man, who goes by the name Junior. "This ain't over."
Unfortunately, he's right. It ain't over, especially for the grieving parents, family and friends of 15-year old Jane Creba, who was shot while doing only what most of us were doing on Boxing Day - shopping. They now begin the process of grieving the loss of a good daughter, a popular student, a star athlete, and now, an innocent victim of a senseless act.

My prayers go out to Jane and her loved ones.
