TORONTO CRACK DEALER WITH GUN SENTENCED TO TWO YEARS LESS A DAY

Corner of Victoria Ave at Harold Street

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~  August 9, 2022 (LSNews)  A 31 year old MOHANNED BEDAWI TAGO appeared by video from Toronto before Justice Bonnie Warkentin in the Thunder Bay Superior Court of Justice on Friday August 5,2022 to plead guilty to some crimes from his role in a drug dealing enterprise in Thunder Bay.

ADMITTED FACTS

Hardworking Thunder Bay Police Officers were conducting surveillance during July & August 2020 on Apartment #1 at 1023 Victoria Avenue East.

Several Toronto drug dealers were in the unit and police had some information that they might have guns.

TBPS Officers received a search warrant and at 2:55pm on September 2,2020 they entered the apartment. Six persons were found inside. Officers seized three handguns, crack cocaine, cash, heroin, multiple cell phones, scales, debt lists.

MOHANNED BEDAWI TAGO was found in the living room. TBPS Officers arrested him and located a gray 2020 Ford Escape with Quebec license plates in the parking lot. A search warrant was granted for the vehicle and TBPS Officers made entry on September 4,2020 at 1:45pm.

Inside the vehicle, TBPS Officers found a loaded Taurus PT 100 handgun with 4 rounds of hollow point ammunition. Serial number SOD70689. There had been attempts to remove the serial number. Officers also seized 44.55 grams of crack cocaine along with $1240 in cash. A Royal Bank card issued to MOHANNED BEDAWI TAGO was also seized.

MOHANNED BEDAWI TAGO is guilty of:

-possession of loaded prohibited firearm

-defacing serial number on handgun

-possession of cocaine for purpose of trafficking.

JOINT SUBMISSION

Federal Crown Attorney Misbah Haque, Provincial Crown Attorney Rob Kozak & Defence lawyer Gil Labine have a joint submission for Her Honour to consider.

The court hears that MOHANNED BEDAWI TAGO arrived in Thunder Bay on August 29,2020 to provide support to Toronto gang members. He thought it would be a good way to make money.

MOHANNED BEDAWI TAGO immigrated to Canada with his family from Khartoum, Sudan when he was 10 years old to escape the civil unrest occurring there.

Both his parents were lawyers in Sudan and his father obtained his law degree and became a lawyer in Toronto.

The court hears his lawyer parents were embarrassed by his arrest.

MOHANNED BEDAWI TAGO briefly worked for Bell Canada.

TAGO served an actual 20 days in custody before being released on very strict bail conditions.

Because he has been on strict conditions, the submission is for a sentence of two years less a day so TAGO can avoid the penitentary and being recruited by gangs.

A DNA order & 10 year weapon prohibition are part of the submission.

A probation order of two years is also proposed with a condition not to attend Thunder Bay.

Justice Warkentin states that she will not impose the condition “not to attend Thunder Bay” because most of the drug dealers from Toronto are black and to ban them from Thunder Bay could be seen as racist.

She asks TAGO if he has anything to say before passing sentence and he states “I’m very sorry for my mistake. It won’t happen again”

TAGO is sentenced to two years less a day. He’ll be statutorily released in 16 months.

TBLAZYWATCH & CBC REFUSED TO REPORT THIS TO THE PUBLIC EVEN THOUGH THEY’RE FULLY AWARE WHAT HAPPENED.

Editorial Opinion:

One has to Wonder who the Judge Appointed to Serve:

A probation order of two years is also proposed with a condition not to attend Thunder Bay.

Justice Warkentin states that she will not impose the condition “not to attend Thunder Bay” because most of the Raci and to ban them from Thunder Bay could be seen as racist.

Preventing the Appearance of Racism is more important than the Safety of the families living in Thunder Bay.
