North America: two killed by police

In Canada, the Toronto Police shot dead Sammy Yatim, 18, who was apparently holding a knife. He was shot nine times: first three shots and then six others. The video do not show Yatim, whose sight is hidden by a bus, but the sound of the shots can be heard perfectly.

The cowardly and murderous excessive use of force has been strongly criticized by a citizenry that feels defenseless against the police forces. A march of protest was held yesterday. 

In the USA, John Warna, 95, was killed by police, using a taser and rubber bullets, at the elderly residence where he lived. The old man apparently threatened nurses with his walking stick and may have got his hands on a knife later.

It is simply unbelievable that police could not imagine other means to deal with the rebellious 95 years-old man, who could hardly pose any threat, even if armed.
