New court documents detail the Rob Ford crack video

Posted by Chris Bateman / March 19, 2014

toronto rob fordToronto Mayor Rob Ford held a glass pipe to his mouth, moved a burning lighter in a circular motion, and inhaled what appeared to be a "narcotic" vapour, according to an official police description of the now infamous drug video ordered released this morning.

The document describes the 1-minute film in detail. It tells how Ford, sitting in a room with Mohamed Siad and convicted cocaine trafficker Elena Basso, was covertly filmed smoking crack. Near the end, "Ford appears to look into the recording device. He then drops the glass cylinder on a table next to him; he briefly points at the camera and asks if it is on."

Another 25-second video, the existence of which was made public by police last year, shows Siad talking to the camera, detailing how to surreptitiously film someone without drawing their attention. He says that's how to "catch a mayor smoking crack."

The documents say there are three other short videos that appear to be failed attempts to film Ford.

The ITO, which stands for Information to Obtain, also confirms that the investigation into Rob Ford is active and ongoing. It alleges his meetings with Sandro Lisi, a friend facing drug and extortion charges related to the crack video, were "indicative to that of drug trafficking" and details a beating at the Basso home by an "unknown male" in the days after the crack story broke.

An Ontario Superior Court judge ordered the release of the documents, which were used to obtain arrest warrants in Project Brazen 2, the months-long police investigation into allegations Ford had been filmed smoking crack, after hearing arguments from lawyers representing a number of Toronto media organizations earlier this morning.

The previous stack of ITO papers contained photographs of the mayor meeting with Lisi and concerns from Ford's city hall staff that he was abusing drugs and alcohol. The countless lurid details led city council to remove many of Ford's powers and responsibilities.

Police Chief Bill Blair announced in October last year that investigators had recovered a deleted copy of the video from a hard drive seized during an anti-gang raid at a Dixon Road high rise complex.

None of the allegations in the ITOs have been proven in court.

He truly no longer cares; he knows his support amongst the 20% Frod Nation is rock solid. Conservative middle aged suburbanites will merrily support this type of degenerate, without seeing the irony of that. How do you explain to your grandchild you're voting for Frod and then ask them not to do all the things he does? You could tell by the casual happy way he gleefully announced he does not WANT to go to World Pride that he doesn't give a shit anymore. He can do whatever he wants to do. The sycophants who run up to him at football games shouting to their hero have bloated his ego to match his waist size. The only thing that will take this egomaniac down a few notches will be the next election. Sadly, this man has come to the end of his political cycle and it is rather sad and disgusting watching him wallow in it. Apparently neither he nor his family have any shame at all. The rest of us do, however. Deep shame.

This must be Doug Ford's new talking point of the day -- the "100% of the time" gives away rANDY's source. Rob's not perfect, who is, but rather have him than Chow, right?

Yes, most politicians are liars and cheats. But it is a wide spectrum, and Ford is clearly at the extreme end of it. His particular behaviour is not expected, is shocking and yes, is disgusting.

If it is not, then please name another mayor who smokes crack and drinks to excess and is exceptionally crude who is still in office. While one or the other trait pops up from time to time, never all three and certainly not without resignation.

Most people have pretty reasonable expectations and parameters for mayors. I imagine they go something like:

- don't get arrested or engage in criminal behavior
- don't embarrass the city you lead through your actions
- manage the city government effectively
- make good policy

0 for 4 there, Robbie.

No worries were babysitting your kids in school all day, feeding them, the system might as well control the content they see as we'll.

Rob clearly does care, it's people he's trusted with his friiendship and the media that are taking videos of his every move and releasing for your kids to see NOT Rob. After all he's been through what king of Mom pulls over the car for her kid to meet Ford at 10 o'clock at night? Rob just made that little geek the most popular kid in his class for the week.

It's the parents' job to monitor the content of their kids' character and to know what they're doing. Acting like life is a video game or a movie --their lives full of guns, drugs, crime and just obsessed with it. Who the heck was babysitting the sons' minds??

Rob's parents clearly did not care, look at the people he's trusted with his friendship and the life he's lead. Now the media that are taking videos of his every move and releasing for your kids to see as an example of how NOT to be. After all he's been through what kind of Mom pulls over the car for her son Rob to score some dope at 10 o'clock at night?

You're right of course, but let's skip the 19th century when evaluating the behavior of politicians when it comes to alcohol. Because, you know, the fact that everyone drank "small beer" like bottled water (to avoid, say, cholera) had nothing to do with people being a wee drunk all the time:

This is the stupidest, most pathetic attempt at justification I've ever heard. I've been on this earth for two score and seven years, this is about the most idiotic line of reasoning I can imagine.

According to Ford Nation, we should expect our politicians to do crack with street gangs. Incredible.

I understand how having a dummy in office provides validation for other dummies, but please listen; you're saying it's okay to be ruled by stupid crack-smoking drunks that hang out with convicts and street gangs.

It's almost a worse example for the children to have done marijuana because your showing an example that you've done marijuana and it had no impact on my life whatsoever. Most people and kids are educated in school on the train wreck that comes from doing crack and the view on marijuana is that its less and less harmful but its very harmful to your lungs, and can be harmful to your life if its use gets out of hand or if its a gateway for you to try the next level of drugs.

Dude...you've been beating this horse to death since Olivia Chow entered the race...and NO ONE CARES.

You are like the little old bitty teetotalers who were futilely shaking their fists at lawmakers for repealing Prohibition, all the while the entire nation was bellying up to the bar to (thoroughly) enjoy booze again.

Face it, the world has passed you by Gary, and we couldn't give a shit who smoked what or when. NO ONE CARES.

Why you ask? Because pot, unlike crack, is basically benign. Well, unless you are too weak-willed to handle it, which means you are probably a child and shouldn't be doing it until you are an adult. You know...like alcohol. Which, if you look at stats Gary, is probably in the order of 5x worse than weed, no matter what metric you employ.

But you aren't shaking your hankie at hooch, are ya grandma? No, you have it in for weed for some nutball reason, which makes me think maybe you either tried it and you got nothing from it, you tried it and couldn't handle it, OR you were never offered it, and you feel left out from all the cool kids.

Well, let me tell you something Gary, pot ain't cool...like beer or wine or poutine or a whole bag of greasy chips or some really amazing chocolate ice cream, it's just another means to take a short, pleasant break from life.

Deal with it, granny.

Still beating a dead dog? It's old news re-released yet again. (yawn) That Jacobsen looked like a moron, smiling at the camera's like he'd accomplished something wonderful. Wonder how much that set the media back.

What's the matter Mr.A? Don't want to weigh in on the pot debate? Do you think it's okay for our politicians to use drugs (including pot) Do you think it's okay for Liberal politicians to accept political donations from members of the mafia and mob (just like they do in Quebec)? Do you think it's okay for police officers to hang out with these same individuals? You know, and I KNOW, the police in this city have been extremely tolerant (much to the detriment of Toronto residents) of organized crime and it's members. Hell, you assholes drink and barbeque together, right? You and your co-workers are no better (you're worse because you let it slide) than Ford. Shove the self-righteous act, okay? Thanks.

By God you people are stupid. There's no case against Ford. I had a feeling, when the file transferred to the OPP, we could expect some news, but this was a joke. We get it dumb asses. He smoked drugs in a pipe, just like Trudeau, Wynne, Chow and city councillors did. They ALL drink and drive too.

Release the damn video already! That's what everyone wants, including Ford. Oh right. Lisi.

Been thinking. On the phone taps, those (butt ugly) drug dealers claimed Ford was using heroin too. Why didn't anyone get Ford using heroin on audio/video? What you've quoted the (butt ugly) dealer as saying on the audio/video is "This is how you catch a mayor smoking crack". He DIDN'T say, this is how you catch a mayor smoking crack and doing heroin (or whatever the term is). The (butt ugly) drug dealers voice, heard on the phone taps KNEW he was wired. The question is, which one of you dirty cops told him, because we know it sure as hell wasn't Ford. Otherwise, police would have that on tape too. I can say confidently, Ford WAS set up by at least one cop (if not more). The timeline of the recordings will speak volumes to Fords' lawyer.

Hang in there Rob.

FORD MORE YEARS!

Still beating a dead dog? It's old news re-released yet again. (yawn) That Jacobsen looked like a moron, smiling at the camera's like he'd accomplished something wonderful. Wonder how much that set the media back.

What's the matter Mr.A? Don't want to weigh in on the pot debate? Do you think it's okay for our politicians to use drugs (including pot) Do you think it's okay for Liberal politicians to accept political donations from members of the mafia and mob (just like they do in Quebec)? Do you think it's okay for police officers to hang out with these same individuals? You know, and I KNOW, the poli

Ohhhhhhh. Isn't that cute? (kneels down, hands on knees). Whose the little troll? Yes you are. Yes you are. (cooing to the troll). Are you pretending to be the mayor? Yes you are. Yes you are. (scratches behind trolls ear lovingly, stands up and exits room, with troll following closely behind). If you're good I'll give you a treat (still cooing). So cute.

Three things, my friend:

1. "I can say confidently, Ford WAS set up by at least one cop (if not more)."

So can I because I am one of the few people who was in the field when this went down, and...

2. "The timeline of the recordings will speak volumes to Fords' lawyer."

...the timelines will actually do nothing to help Ford, for reasons you'll soon see.

And the third thing? It dawned on me the other day when a few us were talking about the case that I know a tiny omission that could totally get Rob Ford off on a technicality, one that Ford's lawyer is surely overlooking, and who would see (well, HEAR) if they were sharp. But do I think they'll catch it? Not at all.

And am going to say anything about it? Not at all. A man will be convicted and I am in a position to aid him and maybe profit from it, but I refuse. And not because of my job or because of some sense of morality or for any other reason than...

3. I hate politics, and I hate what it has become. And I hate what has happened to this town, and the people who run it and even our force. And this city actually NEEDS Ford to hang for this one. And maybe Harper to hang* for his sins. And Wynne for hers (well...McGuinty's, really). And then maybe someone needs to dig up dirt and hang that weasel Hudak for his brand of evil. And then do the same with Raitt and have her dangle. And Baird. And even Trudeau or Chow or Tory if they don't toe the line and veer away from descending into the same muck these other, typical b.s. politician have, then them, too. ALL these haters have to hang*. (*Metaphorically, of course).

Otherwise in 20 years, the populace is going to become so united in their distaste, maybe one of them will *actually* hang, and by that point society will have crumbled beyond repair. And mouth-breathers like "FORD NATION"? They will have been the cause. Which makes me angry we agree on anything (see point #1).

So please...FORD NATION...close your mouth before you say something so stupid that you hurt someone.

Good so nothing's changed. This country was founded on excessive drinking, its popularity dates back to Sir John A.

Hello Toronto!

I designed a site to help people become more engaged in the Toronto Civic Election.

www.flashcardford.com

It’s a Flash-Card learning system to help people internalize information about the upcoming Toronto Civic election. There are two main categories: Pro-Ford and Anti-Ford. You can learn facts that support or reject the re-election Mayor Ford.

After every ten questions completed, the system updates a chart showing what percentage of completed questions have been Pro-Ford or Anti-Ford. The site is an excellent barometer of what's happening on the street, & it's continuously updated!

Lots of younger people aren't interested in voting. There are various reasons, but some that I hear are that they don't understand the issues enough, and that it doesn't matter who gets in, governments just waste taxpayer's money.

Flash-Card Ford helps people understand the issues better, and make a better judgment on whether their money is being wasted or not. More importantly, it engages people to seek out more information and have discussions with friends & family.

The site is neutral. I've provided both Pro-Ford facts and Anti-Ford facts. It's a great site for people to internalize some facts to help them make a decision and/or help them persuade others of their opinion.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me!
