Faisal Hussain: What the mainstream media won’t tell you

A cold-hearted thug walked through a Toronto neighbourhood and opened fire at innocent civilians enjoying a warm summer evening. He murdered a 10-year-old girl and an 18-year-old young woman. He deserves our scorn, not our sympathy.

Canadian media outlets are going out of their way to paint Faisal Hussain as a victim. This is an insult to all Canadians, especially the victims.

Below is everything we know about the Danforth shooter, both confirmed and unconfirmed accounts, including reports that the mainstream media doesn’t want you to know.

This is what the mainstream media will not tell you.

Confirmed reports

Unconfirmed reports the media is repeating

  • Hussain had previously been apprehended by Toronto police twice under the Ontario Mental Health Act (anonymous police source).
  • An anonymous former teacher of Hussain at Victoria Park Collegiate says that the school contacted police in 2009 after the teacher asked Hussain what he wanted to do with his life and Hussain replied: “I want to kill someone.” (anonymous teacher)
  • Hussain shot himself in the head following the rampage (anonymous person close to Hussain’s family)

Unconfirmed reports the media is ignoring

  • Faisal Hussain visited ISIS websites and may have expressed support for the terrorist group (anonymous law enforcement source).
  • Law enforcement in Canada began investigating whether Hussain had lived for a time in Afghanistan and possibly Pakistan (anonymous law enforcement source).
  • Toronto Police source told the National Post: "Toronto Police files show little evidence of the typical history of a person with a florid mental illness such as “psychosis,” as his family said." Source seems to deny claims of Hussain’s alleged run-ins under the Mental Health Act.
