Make public oversight of police training a priority

This was posted more than 12 months ago. The information may be outdated.

As leaders of the Urban Alliance on Race Relations, we are bewildered, saddened and concerned by the police shooting death of 18-year-old Sammy Yatim on a streetcar in downtown Toronto.

Were it not for several smartphone videos shot by “citizen journalists” at the scene, the public would not even be aware of the disproportionately brutal response from the officer who fired nine bullets in 15 seconds, followed by a taser.
