Lethal Pranksterism in Toronto

The Toronto Sun tells of a mother who discovered that the coat she bought for her 2-year-old boy at a used clothes sale at her church had more than 40 razor blades sewn into the lining. This is terrible.

But there is something more terrible further on. This isn't the only incident of lethal pranksterism in the Toronto area.
Similar incidents, described as acts of "community terrorism" by psychiatrist Dr. Mark Berber in the Sun last October, have occurred over the past year.

In one instance, a 10-year-old girl was cut when she picked up a bouquet of fake flowers that was left outside a Hamilton school booby-trapped with a rusty razor blade. In another, shards of glass were glued to monkey bars and a slide in Burlington.

In Toronto, more than a dozen blocks of wood with razors protruding were buried in the sand at Woodbine Beach last September.
