While the police were busy reviewing footage from the downtown surveillance cameras and hunting down residents not wearing seat belts, a bloody stabbing was taking place across the street from police headquarters. The police are asking the public for help. Apparently, the cameras outside of headquarters are as useless as the ones downtown.


Officers were called to the nine-storey building at 580 Dundas St. about 10:30 p.m. Monday when a 27-year-old man visiting an apartment suffered a "severe stab wound" to his leg, police said.

The attack took place in a seventh-floor unit, several tenants said yesterday.

While police said they found the scene of the attack and interviewed several people, other witnesses left before questioning and investigators were still looking for suspects last night.

[..] That attack was London's second stabbing of the night, coming just hours after an unrelated incident a few streets away, police said.

Unless I'm misreading the qoute...

How could the cameras outside of police HQ catch this act if the act took place on the seventh floor of the building opposite?

Details, details, details…

Many thanks for the North Korea video, Rhebner. Now that I've got it, I have to decide whether to watch it tonight with popcorn and soft drinks or with a thin gruel and a tablespoon of polluted water.

It's not exactly the 'feel good hit of the year'. I would'nt let the kids watch it either.
