Shootings... big headlines here is that there were seven shootings in seven days. The worst ever in years.
"By the middle of last week, 41 people had been slain on the streets of Toronto so far this year - 20 as the result of gun violence." Torontosun.canoe.ca, Sunday July 23, 2006
There was a newspaper article this past weekend regarding the increase in carjacking in one of Toronto's regions, York (which is comparable to Sandton). 12 cars hijacked this year so far...
Here is the (single) crime report page from that newspaper.
Sigh. Reading the article, all I can say is, South African criminals have superior methods and are more ... creative... in their criminal activities.
