article imageRob Ford: 'I had nothing to do with' the murder of Anthony Smith

By Marcus Hondro     Jan 29, 2014 in Politics
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford told the media on Tuesday that he had "nothing to do" with the murder of Anthony Smith, a young man shot and killed last March 28. Ford is seen in what's become an infamous photo with Smith outside an alleged crack house.
In Smith's shooting, one man is charged with first-degree murder and another, Hanad Mohamed, 23, today had his charges as being an accessory after the fact to manslaughter stayed.
"I don't know anything about it," The Mayor told media, adding he was tired of suggestions that he was involved and may do something about them. "It takes a lot for me to take legal action, but if it continues, I may have to...people should be careful what they write."
Rob Ford: "pisses me off"
Ford also spoke of allegations and rumors he got members of a high-school football team he'd coached to beat up a former boyfriend of his sister, Kathy Ford, while the boyfriend, Scott MacIntyre was in jail. Two members of that team were convicted of beating up MacIntyre while all three were in jail and the judge, Justice Paul French, ruled they did so because MacIntyre was a bother to the Mayor by threatening to go to the media and expose items about the Ford family they did not want known.
Judge French had noted that MacIntyre was "was viciously attacked and severely beaten" but Ford said Tuesday any suggestion he played a role in getting those players to hurt his sister's ex-boyfriend were "so far fetched." Ford said it "pisses me off" when he hears rumors tying him to the death. On Tuesday the 'rumors' became a lawsuit as MacIntyre named Ford as part of a civil suit he has launched in the wake of the incident.
Truth alludes Mayor Rob Ford
With regard his claims, Mayor Ford may have trouble getting belief from some constituents due to his history of lying. He's denied drinking escapades he was later found to have made, he said there was no video showing him with alleged drug dealers smoking drugs, and yet he'd already sent staff to try and obtain it. He's also admitted he smoked crack cocaine, this after repeated denials over a period of months.
