Scarborough Shootings July 16 2012
It’s really sad that a massive shooting happened at all. Especially in a community that is a mere 2 minutes away from me. I know the struggles the people in that community have attempted to overcome their social status and stigma, and compared to back in the day Scarborough as a whole has really come a long way when it comes to violence. 23 shot, a 14 year old and 23 year old dead. A baby was grazed with a bullet. It’s disgusting. I honestly hope that when they catch these shit heads, that they’re sent to jail for the rest of their lives. People in Scarborough are awesome. We’re extremely diverse by race, lifestyle, religion, wildlife (yes we have foxes and deers in the city!) and unlike the rest of our Canadian brethren, we don’t stand for too much bS. The day will come when ppl in Scarborough will realize its true jewel and start respecting our community and the beauty it offers. I’m not too sure what more I want to say about this, except that I know this will never stop the ppl of Scarborough from living their lives, but I’m really disappointed.
When more than 1,000, mostly white, mostly young, mostly middle class people get assaulted and arrested by police officers on the lawn of Queen’s Park, it’s a big deal. Newspaper headlines reveal how police officers who break the law and beat up those they’ve detained usually get away with a slap on the wrist — if that.
But when the same officers assault people at night, in alleyways and in interview rooms — people who disproportionately come from racialized and low-income communities — it rarely makes the news. And in these cases, even a slap on the wrist is hard to come by.
A Guy Can Dream Can’t He?
Adam Goodenough artist statement:
Anyone who lives or has been to Toronto knows this is not what the TTC subway looks like. But, the assignment just said to make a map so I went about drawing all the extentions and new routes I could fit in.
Done in Illustrator CS2 in about 10-15 hours.
With much thanks to Google Maps.
Follow the source to view a zoomed in version of the full subway line. Very Cool
