The sliding door of an isolation cell at a high-security mental hospital was propped open a few inches, just wide enough for the man inside to take a Zoom call on a computer, placed out of reach on a desk pushed in front of his cell.
Fearful staff won’t let him out unless he’s strapped down. He is prone to explosive violence and has a history of escapes.

Hard as it may be to believe, “Harriet” is the first feature film about Harriet Tubman. Kasi Lemmons’ movie about the Underground Railroad leader premiered Tuesday night at the Toronto International Film Festival where festival director Cameron Bailey, introducing the film, noted the cinematic injustice of Tubman only now making it to the big screen.

It took Eddie Murphy more than a decade to get a movie made about Rudy Ray Moore. Judging by the response to the film at the Toronto International Film Festival, the wait was worth it. “Dolemite Is My Name” drew some of the best reviews of Murphy’s career, following the film’s premiere over the weekend in Toronto.

Opinion | How Many Women Have to Die to End 'Temptation'?

The Atlanta murders follow a terrible pattern of misogynist violence.
By Jessica Valenti
March 22, 2021
How many women have to die for men’s sexual issues?
After the murderous attack on three Georgia spas on Tuesday, which took the lives of eight people, Robert Aaron Long, the 21-year-old alleged killer, told the police that the women murdered were “temptations” he needed to “eliminate.”
Mr. Long, his one-time roommate told authorities, was deeply ashamed of his history of hiring sex workers, and like so many misogynist killers before him, decided women themselves were to blame.
For too long, women have been punished and killed because of men’s inability to deal with issues around rejection, desire and shame. Women of color are especially at risk; they’re disproportionately attacked and more likely to be blamed for the violence perpetrated against them. Six of the people killed last week were Asian women, who are distinctly hypersexualized in American culture.

The case of the man found guilty of murdering 10 people and attempting to kill 16 others in the 2018 Toronto van attack has been adjourned until May.
Lawyers for the Crown and the accused appeared in court to discuss next steps for sentencing on Thursday and the proceedings took place without media or members of the public present.
Earlier this month, Ontario Superior Court Justice Anne Molloy found Alek Minassian criminally responsible for his actions when he intentionally plowed down pedestrians along Yonge Street in North York on April 23, 2018.
The attack claimed the lives of 85-year-old Munir Abdo Habib Najjar, 45-year-old Chul “Eddie” Min Kang, 30-year-old Anne Marie D’Amico, 80-year-old Dorothy Sewell, 55-year-old Beutis Renuka Amarasingha, 94-year-old Mary Elizabeth Forsyth, 22-year-old So He Chung, 33-year-old Andrea Bradden, 83-year-old Geraldine Brady, and 22-year-old Ji Hun Kim.

On April 23, 2018, self-described incel Alek Minassian deliberately drove a rented van into a crowd of pedestrians on a busy Toronto street, killing 10 and injuring 16 others, mostly women.
Earlier this month, the "involuntary celibate" was found guilty on all counts for the murderous act, with Ontario Superior Court Justice Anne Molloy explicitly rejecting the defense team's argument that his autism made him not criminally responsible for his actions.
Other self-described incels have had no trouble defending the mass murderer, with one commenter on The Black Pill Club, and incel hangout online, remarking that Minassian's act was "a middle finger to this hostile society." Another commenter's only complaint was that Minassian hadn't killed enough people to warrant worship.

Kevin Martin: Mass-murder case may be far from over

It would appear “John Doe” may have a compelling ground to appeal his convictions on 10 counts of first-degree murder and 16 of attempted murder.

A convicted "incel" mass murderer tried to use autism as an excuse for his crimes — and failed


comments
Last week 28-year-old Alek Minassian, a Canadian software and mobile app developer, was found guilty of killing 10 people in 2018, when he intentionally drove his van into a crowd of pedestrians in a commercial district in Toronto. The fatalities included eight women and two men ranging in age from 22 to 94,  while sixteen other people were injured. Minassian's social media posts immediately prior to the murders give an insight into his motive: in a statement that he posted on Facebook minutes before the attack, he identified himself as an "incel," shorthand for "involuntarily celibate." As Minassian wrote: "the Incel Rebellion has already begun!"

Terrorism is a serious business and attributing the label wantonly to any act of violence makes a mockery of the term


Follow RT on
I wince when I read when someone wants to promiscuously brand any group they don’t like ‘terrorists’. The recent calls to expand it to include the misogynist ‘incel’ movement are a perfect example of the term’s devaluation.
Incels, are ‘involuntary celibates’ who blame feminists and women for their sad, sexless predicament. Some have lashed out against their lack of sexual and cultural status, while others have murdered women in Canada and the United States.
This week, Alek Minassian, a self-described incel, was convicted of killing 10 people and injuring 16 others in his 2018 van attack in Toronto. Minassian’s depraved act of violence was motivated by his hatred of women, but does that mean that this mass murderer is a terrorist?

Minassian decision opens door for verdict of not criminally responsible due to autism

Card image cap


 
TORONTO --
The judge who found Alek Minassian guilty of murder and attempted murder in the Toronto van attack set Canadian precedent Wednesday by considering autism a "mental disorder" under the Criminal Code.
Justice Anne Molloy ruled that autism spectrum disorder did not leave the 28-year-old not criminally responsible for killing 10 people and injuring 16 others, but her decision to consider that possibility means the argument could be made in future cases.
Some legal experts expressed concern about the implications of Molloy's decision, while members of the autism community said it would further stigmatize those living with the condition.
Molloy noted, however, that the decision does not "say anything at all about any connection between ASD and criminality," and each case must be decided based on the specific circumstances.

TORONTO - Inspector Graham Gibson never bought into the argument that autism prevented Alek Minassian from knowing that killing unsuspecting pedestrians on a crowded sidewalk was morally wrong.
But despite the strong case he built as the lead detective in the Toronto van attack case, Gibson had nervously awaited the verdict unsure of the outcome.

A 28-YEAR-old Canadian who drove a van into pedestrians in a deadly attack three years ago in Toronto was found guilty of murdering 10 people and trying to kill 16 others.
Ontario Superior Court Judge Anne Molloy rejected defence arguments that Alek Minassian was incapable of discerning right from wrong because of his autism spectrum disorder (ASD), calling his crime “horrific”.

Twenty-eight-year old Alek Minassian was found guilty on 26 charges that include murder and attempted murder Wednesday for purposefully driving a van through a crowd in Toronto nearly three years ago.
On April 23, 2018, the man drove a white rental van onto a crowded sidewalk and plowed into pedestrians, killing 10 people and wounding another 15. Defense attorney Boris Bytensky argued his client's autism disorder rendered him incapable of developing empathy and therefore unaware of the consequences of his actions, the CBC reported. Justice Anne Molloy immediately dismissed that as a defense. She found Minassian guilty of 10 counts of first-degree murder and 16 counts of attempted murder. Lack of empathy, she said, was not a defense.

Man found guilty of murder in 2018 Toronto van attack, life in prison likely

A man who plowed a rented van into dozens of people in Toronto in 2018 is guilty of murdering 10 people and attempting to murder 16, a judge ruled on Wednesday, dismissing a defense argument that a mental disorder left the driver unaware of how horrific his actions were.
