Falconer: A “shameful day” for police
After the jury found Cst. James Forcillo guilty of attempted murder in the shooting of Sammy Yatim on January 25, 2016, Sammy’s mother, Sahar Bahadi, read a statement to media. This was followed by a short question and answer with Julian Falconer, of Falconers LLP, the firm representing Dr. Bahadi and Sammy’s sister in their civil lawsuit against the police. Mr. Falconer noted that it was a “shameful day” for Toronto police, and that the days of police “immunity” are over.
