It was like the bad old days of police-community relations in the 10th-floor offices of the Urban Alliance on Race Relations Tuesday. There the families of police shooting victims past (Trevor Graham, Byron Debassige, Levi Schaeffer, Sylvia Klibingaitis, O'Brien Christopher- Reid) relived their horror stories for the assembled media. Tears were shed. Emotions ran high. Questions were asked. Why isn't more being done to investigate Yatim's shooting? Why is only one officer, 14 Division Constable James Forcillo, being investigated when a second on the scene tasered Yatim after he'd been shot? The ghosts of past police-community battles swirled around the room.
