Nov 20 - Teen murdered During Funeral For Shooting Victim
 

 
It is as unimaginable as it is unthinkable – a cold blooded k*lling at the funeral of a young teen who was himself gunned down only a few days before.

Those who were attending the final farewells for 17-year-old Jamal Hemmings are horrified by the violence that left Amon Beckles dead and even more families grieving.

Cops are on the hunt for the suspects who gunned down the teen at an Albion Road Church on Friday.

But those who were at the service remain shocked and angry that such a violent action would desecrate such a solemn ceremony.

For Olive Baksh, it was a double déjà vu – her son was stabbed to death seven years ago. “I think they're very disturbed,” she says of the culprits.

Many are also infuriated with police, claiming they should have known the danger level and provided better protection.

Chief Bill Blair defended his officers.

"There was no intelligence indicating that there was any risk and certainly had we had any such information we would have been present,” he said.

But cops, who have vowed to cut down on the violence, are equally appalled by a murder on what is otherwise sacred ground.

“It's obvious to see the victim who the service was for today and this victim obviously were known to each other, and I think that's fairly obvious and maybe something that is a part of this case today,” concludes Insp. Brian Raybould.

The location of the crime scene also provides a bitter irony. It’s the same place where a prayer march was held this past summer in response to Toronto’s record gun violence.

Mayor David Miller blames the growing violence on poverty and deprived neighbourhoods.

He believes witnesses will tell what they know.

"When people come forward as witnesses of a crime they send a message that in Toronto we are not going to accept violent acts like this."

But the area’s pastor notes sadly it appears the peace message he and others like him have been trying to send isn’t working.

He wants to see the government and the cops f*ght the gangs on their own terms.

“I think the youth are sending a statement to us that they're not afraid of the adults and the police,” Orim Meilkle laments. “It's a very brazen act and I think we need to address it like that.”

Ya it doesn't go on here everyday which is why it caught all the news attention.

If this happened anywhere it would still be sad and fu*ked up, just cause it happens in the hood it dont make it right.

for real yo, n*ggas get gunned down at funerals everyday, now u exaggerating. n*ggas get k*lled everyday, but cats used to respect the church, especially when people are mourning, cuz thats something that all of us gonna have to feel at one time or antoher.


But go head, Im prepared. Your about to tell me where u from, where u rep, how hood it is, and how gangstas n*ggas are. no matter wat the stats say, your city is the murder capitol. and this sh*t goes on all the time. stop lying bout nonsense

No one with machines is exposing their face. Don't spread lies on here. The Real Toronto DVD shows you the reality out here, a side of Toronto many people are unfamiliar with because the politicians , cops, etc...try to hide this from the outsider's eye. This is an inside look at the hoods and run down areas out here and the people that live in them.

I hope for their sake they really are drug dealers and they're their using their guns for protection because that's understandable. But got damn if they got them to be cool i hope they reap the "benefits" of having what a gun and talking hard sh*t like that for no reason entails, i.e getting yourself shot at.
