Toronto has another mass shooting
(CNN) — Multiple people were shot outside of a Toronto, Canada, restaurant around 10 p.m. Sunday, Toronto police Sgt. Glenn Russell tells CNN.

The victims have been sent to trauma centers throughout the city, Russell says.

Eight people have been transported to various hospitals — six to trauma hospitals, one to a pediatric trauma center and one to a local hospital, Toronto Paramedic Services told CNN partner CTV. Two more people are about to be transported from the scene to a local hospital — making it a total of 10 patients so far, the Canadian station reported.

Toronto Fire Services is assisting with efforts, Toronto Fire Capt. Adrian Ratushniak tells CNN.

Officials are expecting to issue a press release in the coming hours, according to police.

GRA:A policy that took on kneeling by blacks,during the national anthem,was shelved last week.The Miami Dolphins were going to fine individuals for not complying with the new rule--which was,do your protesting off the field.The NFLPA filed a grievance and the NFL owners caved in.
(SBNATION)The NFL’s national anthem policy lasted less than two months before it was shelved by the league Thursday.

In a joint statement with the NFLPA, the NFL announced that “no new rules relating to the anthem will be issued or enforced” until the league and players’ association find a resolution regarding protests during the national anthem.

The policy said players had the option to stay in the locker room, but everyone on the field had to “stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem.” Teams would be fined by the NFL for violations.

After the NFL and NFLPA’s agreement, there is no league-wide policy for how to handle players who protest, at least not for the time being.

In other words, the NFL is now back in the same exact place it’s been since Colin Kaepernick first started the trend of protesting police brutality and racial inequality by sitting during the national anthem in August 2016.

The freeze of the policy that was just enacted in May is an embarrassing result for the NFL, but likely in its best interest. For now, this is how it impacts all parties:

What does the policy freeze mean for NFL players?
When the national anthem policy was announced in May, many NFL players were furious.

“What NFL owners did today was thwart the players’ constitutional rights to express themselves and use our platform to draw attention to social injustices like racial inequality in our country,” Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said in a statement at the time. “Everyone loses when voices get stifled.”

It wasn’t going to stop all players, though. Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Jurrell Casey promised he’d protest regardless if there was a punishment or not, and it’s likely other players would’ve followed suit.

But the removal of a policy that sought to keep protesting players out of sight is a win for those who want their voice heard without threat of punishment.

It doesn’t mean players can protest risk-free, though.

The biggest danger for players who kneel or otherwise demonstrate during the national anthem is that they’ll end up like Kaepernick or Eric Reid. The pair of former 49ers players filed collusion cases against the NFL after they were essentially iced out of the league.

Any other player who chooses to protest must weigh the possibility that it could jeopardize his chance of getting another NFL contract.

But aside from protesting players, the rescinded policy is also a win for the NFLPA, which needs to fight for every bit of power it can in the final years before a labor fight in 2021. Money will be the crux of the dispute, but issues like player punishments will also have a role in the next CBA negotiation.

So now players will get a seat at the table to discuss anthem protests after getting shut out of the conversation in May.

What does it mean for NFL teams?
In hindsight, the oddest thing about the national anthem policy is that it was created by team owners. That’s only weird because it would’ve been team owners getting punished most.

When Casey said he’d continue to protest during the national anthem, it meant the Titans were the ones about to be on the hook for fines from the league.

The policy said if any players or personnel demonstrated during the anthem, their teams would be fined by the NFL. Any punishment for players was to be decided by teams.

The Toronto shooting occurred in Greektown.Awfully dark looking Greeks I see in the pics.Suspect,who is dead,was described "as white",though many bloggers thought it was related to gang violece.In fact,Toronto had added 200 cops to areas plagued by gangs--inferred by most reports that this was one of them.
I wonder if Montana is still safe to go to.Or the North Pole.

Pursuit of a person is not a good idea. And WHAT is the racial remark? They never mention what the "remark" is or what the "word" was.
