    A video showing the moment a police officer confronted and arrested a suspect.


    The man can be seen pointing a gun at the police officer, shouting "kill me" and "I've a gun in my pocket".


    The police officer continues to tell him to "get down".

    The suspect in the Toronto van attack that killed ten people and injured 15 others on Monday is a 25-year-old man named Alek Minassian from the Toronto suburb of Richmond Hill. (Alek Minassian/LinkedIn)

    That video is remarkable for a couple of reasons.

    First because the dude very, very clearly wanted to be shot - the restraint that cop showed was remarkable - and secondly for those people nonchalantly strolling in the background.

    Apparently felt aggrieved at constantly being knocked back by women, while other less successful males succeeded.



    He'll probably be even less successful from here on in.

    Perhaps PB can go back and marry him.

    I agree, need better pics and lighting:



    That or wait until the inevitable right-wing whackjob website or the like makes a definitive declaration.

    Toronto: A 25-year-old man who drove a rental van into a crowded Toronto footpath was charged on Tuesday with 10 counts of murder and 13 of attempted murder as Canadian authorities searched for a motive in the deadliest mass murders in the country's modern history.


    Alek Minassian showed little overt emotion as he made a brief appearance in a Toronto courtroom in a white jumpsuit and handcuffs. The judge ordered him to be detained without bond and scheduled the next hearing for May 10.

    What is the 'incel' movement? Questions raised after deadly Toronto van rampage - NZ Herald

    "...a group of pathetic, victimised white males who just are lonely... misogynistic mindset..."

    Could be describing some TD members.

    Crikey. What's with this cheap Charlie? Are hookers that pricey in Toronto?
