Janefinch.com Interviews Jordan Manners' Cousin

C.W. Jeffreys Collegiate Institute, the high school where Jordan Manners was shot and killed yesterday, is not too far from North York's Jane-Finch intersection. So it's no surprise that Jane-Finch.com just posted an interview with Jordan Manners' cousin Blacus Ninjah.

Blacus doesn't offer any new details about the murder or the police investigation but he does have some pointed words about the sensational coverage from the media. His key words of advice for the media and the public are to not "over-exaggerate what happened and try to exploit the community and make it look like it's an urban problem, a hip hop problem or a black problem."

On another note, there are already more than a dozen Jordan Manners related Facebook groups set up. Just search Jordan Manners. There's also an event - Take Back Our School Candle Vigil - scheduled to start at 8pm tonight.
