TORONTO – A Toronto police officer has been sentenced to six years in the shooting death of a teen on a streetcar in a case that sparked protests in Canada's largest city after it was caught on video and posted on YouTube.
Justice Edward Then said during the sentencing Thursday that the video was "powerful evidence" that what Constable James Forcillo said occurred on the streetcar did not happen.
