Vigil for Jeffrey


This was the scene outside police headquarters yesterday at the Jeffrey Reodica vigil.

Held on the International Day Against Police Brutality, about 100 people paid their tributes to the 17-year-old Reodica, who was gunned down by two undercover cops in Scarborough almost two years ago. The Special Investigations Unit claimed Reodica had a knife. The family hasn't been able to get ahold of any evidence records or witness accounts to date and are still fighting for it.

A coroner's inquest begins May 8.
