Here I go again on my own.  Going down this lonely road where once again I started piping off before knowing the facts.  Well maybe that is a little extreme.  Well maybe it isn’t.  I’m an idiot regardless.  Funny thing is that when you’re an idiot so often you actually realize it’s a place you’re not only comfortable, but tranquil.  When you’re an idiot, people tend to leave you alone.  And when I’m alone, that is when I’m my happiest.

That is a hard part of the job.  When you’re an artist who needs to express himself, that act of interaction is the poops.

So it turns out that this Officer Forcilliolioioi is a total dickhead.  The second I expressed my support for him I was run out of town by a bunch of social justice warriors brandishing torches and pitchforks.  Cue getaway music.

The whole thing was a mess.  A guy wielding a pen knife didn’t deserve to die.  But if the whole thing was so benign, why did all the passengers flee from the bus?  What the fuck, Toronto?  If that motherfucker tried that shit on a Hamilton bus he wouldn’t have been shot by an overzealous dickhead cop.  He would have ended up in Hamilton General receiving surgery to have a pen knife removed from his stomach that ended up there through HIS ASSHOLE.

Seriously.  He can clear out a fucking bus but he doesn’t deserve to be a shot.  I’m trying to imagine how this shit went down.

DISPATCH:  ALL OFFICERS ON DUTY RESPOND TO A MAN ON A BUS WIELDING A KNIFE!  PASSENGER HAve FLED.  I REPEAT!  HE IS ARMED AND DANGEROUS!

I don’t speak cop dispatch but I’m sure it went down a little like that.  I know it wasn’t like this:

DISPATCH:  ATTENTION OFFICERS!  THERE IS A MENTALLY ILL KID ON THE BUS HAVING A PSYCHOTIC EPISODE.  HE’S NOT DANGEROUS.  IT’S ONLY A PEN KNIFE.  THE PASSENGERS ARE A BUNCH OF DRAMA QUEENS.

I seriously want to run screaming for the hills.  I can’t stand this horseshit.  Officer Dildo went too far.  Whether he was suffering from PTSD or lethal doses of bravado is irrelevant.  Did the kid deserve to die?  Fuck no.  Did a bunch of passengers on the bus deserve to be scarred for life?  Definitely not.  And don’t fucking tell me that wouldn’t be a traumatic experience for them.  It would be.  That poor little mentally ill kid was obviously intimidating enough to clear a bus.

EXT.  CITY OF TORONTO – AFTERNOON

The sun shines brilliantly down on the city of Toronto.  Pretentious hipsters and yuppies walk hurriedly through the streets with lattes, briefcases, talking on cellphones.  A city bus navigates through busy traffic.

INT.  BUS – SAME TIME

The bus is crowded with impatient commuters.  People stare at their cellphones while snobbily clutching purses and other personal belongings.  SAMMY YATIM, (18), stands suddenly from his seat exposing himself brandishing a knife.

SAMMY
Hey everyone!  Look at my dick!  You’re all gonna die!

Sammy swings the knife around for effect.

PASSENGER
He has a knife!  Run!

EXT.  CITY OF HAMILTON – AFTERNOON

Clouds of foreboding look down on the city of Hamilton.  Crackhead and blue collarites saunter forlornly through the streets casting nervous glances over their shoulders.  A city bus navigates through busy traffic.

INT.  BUS – SAME TIME

The bus is sparsely crowded with degenerates.  People stare out the windows challenging the world.  SAMMY YATIM, (18), stands suddenly from his seat exposing himself brandishing a knife.

SAMMY
Hey motherfuckers!  It’s penis time!

Sammy swings the knife around for effect.    Passenger calmly stand and surround Sammy.  A tough looking steelworker shoves Sammy.

STEELWORKER:
Put that fucking thing away or it’s going up your fucking ass!

Sammy swallows nervously and goes to put the knife in his pocket.  The steelworker grabs it out of his hand and points at Sammy’s penis.

STEELWORKER:
Not the knife, fucknozzle!
That little bastard down there.

Sammy begins to sob and returns his junk to his pants.  A thug taps patiently on the shoulder of the steelworker.

THUG
May I have the knife please?

The steelworker hands the knife to the thug.  The thug looks sincerely at Sammy.

THUG
Since you’ve decided to pull out a knife like a little toughass, I think it’s only fair that you know how it feels to be stabbed with one.

Sammy begins to sob.  The thug raises the knife.  An elderly woman puts her hand on his arm.

ELDERLY LADY
Now, Spencer.  How would your mother feel if she found out you were stabbing poor mentally ill youngsters on the bus?  Spencer hangs his head.

THUG
Sorry Mrs. Illionic.  Please don’t tell my mother.

MRS. ILLIONIC
Give me the knife, sweety.

Spencer the thug hands Miss Illionic the knife.  Mrs. Illionic slams the knife into Sammy’s right eye.

In Hamilton there would be a story about vigilante just on the HSR.  Everyone in Hamilton would shrug their shoulders with pride.

Here’s a news flash for all you idiots.

SAMMY HAD NO HISTORY OF MENTAL ILLNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He was all fucked up on ecstasy.  He also had blow in his system.  He decided to be a little toughass on the bus and got shot for his troubles.  Officer Dildo shot him too many times.  That’s fair.  But I think he deserved to be shot and I have no sympathy.

I’m tired of idiots just taking a far extreme side on this.  Fuck off.  The cops was an asshole yeah, but so was the fucking kid.
