The case would change the way Toronto police respond to incidents where suspects show disturbing behaviour. On a July night in 2013, 18-year-old Sammy Yatim boarded a streetcar and began acting irrationally, exposing himself and threatening passengers with a knife. Constable James Forcillo arrived at the scene and within minutes fired his weapon nine times – killing Yatim. Following an investigation, Forcillo was charged with second degree murder. In January 2016, after six days of deliberations, a jury found Constable Forcillo guilty of attempted murder. But he was cleared of the other charge. The jury felt he was justified in firing the first three bullets. Finding an officer guilty of murder when they were responding to an incident is a rare verdict in Canada.
