The family of Sammy Yatim have filed a million-dollar lawsuit against the police in a cynical attempt to stem their tears.
Anyone who knows anything knows that justice cannot be found when the police shove fistfuls of money into the wounded hole of a person, family or community.
It was Yatim's sister and mother (maybe women handle grief better in times like these, unlike the old stereotype of a man's Stiff Upper Lip) who pressed forward though the judicial system.
Their multimillion-dollar lawsuits have been filed against Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair, the Toronto Police board, Const. James Forcillo and others whom they allege these officers also acted with "reckless disregard for the life of Sammy."
