Who’s more outrageous, Toronto City Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti or presidential hopeful Donald Trump?
While Mammoliti has no issues with the Muslim community, the municipal representative is tired of the violence that has plagued Toronto over the last week or so. To deal with the issue, he wants THE ARMY brought in! (VIDEO of his comments BELOW)
Multiple shootings and stabbings have occurred daily with alarming regularity since late last week.
A fatal shooting Tuesday night at 5 pm rocked the Islington and Steeles Avenue West area (Rexdale). A black car was seen leaving the area.
Mammoliti has branded the shooters in this and other incidents “terrorists”, and believes that they needed to be treated as such.
He also claims that “we have a well-established federal reserve – an army perhaps – that can come in and help police. They have more tools than a police department has to be able to track people down and treat them as the terrorists that they are.”
Hey, former mayor Mel Lastman called in the army when the city was crippled by a large snowfall back on January 12, 1999. If we called them in for snow, shouldn’t we call them in for something more deadly like street crime?
Is Mammoliti making sense here? Would armed soldiers on our streets bring peace to the city?
