Duly Quoted: “Jeremy,” a Friend of Constable James Forcillo

“He always had your back—if someone ever started with you, he’d be the first one there to protect you.”

—The Globe‘s story about the private life of James Forcillo, the police constable charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Sammy Yatim, is full of heartwarming details like this one. (The article hints at some family troubles, but that’s about as scandalous as it gets.) It’s hard to know where to assign blame in a case like this, and more biographical information on both sides—see also the Star‘s lengthy piece on Yatim—only makes things harder.
