Its pretty bad when a man can hit someone with his car knowingly, then drag him to his ultimate death and get bail. The justice system needs to give its head a shake.

Ronald Persaud
What was the killer doing at the vicinity of Ronald Persaud condo
He had intension to kill.
He could have reversed his SUV with a man in front of him.
He should be charged with murder. His bail is a gross injustice to the distraught family.
He should rot in jail or even be given a life sentence.
He had all opportunity to leave the scene without murdering Ronald Persaud.

We believe the hit and run killer of Ronald Persaud had no legal driving licence.
He should be given a life sentence.

its crazy that a the individual charged pressed his foot on the gas and ran someone over, killing him in rage and obviously knew what he was doing before he stepped on that gas pedal, dragging Ron and killing him, Not only did he keep moving once he hit him initially (he could of stopped) but he also left the scene. He killed someone who is loved by so many. The killer had many other options then running him over, out of anger he knew exactly what he was doing and about to do, and INTENDED to kill Ron with his car. it doesn't matter how angry you are you don't run someone over and kill them, everyones knows that hitting someone with a car there is a very high chance of killing them. The killer was angry and knew what he was doing and should riot in jail for life.

Ronald believes in Karma
He always have this saying...
What goes around ...comes around...
No one have the right to take someone life..
What this man did was wrong...this is something he would have to live with for the rest of his life
if he has a heart
In my mind he knew exactly what he was doing...his intent was to kill him
The location where he was hit was just a small driveway..how can someone achieve acceleration to kill - he did. He murdered Ronald.
He will or his family will suffer in time.

I hope if this murderer runs away the judge can be sued by the relatives. He should not have been given bail.
I pray that the man above punish him and his family for the pain he has caused Ronald and his family.
Many are praying for this murderer to suffer. I hope he gets more than he has given.

This murderer will hopefully be brought to justice in the canadian system. The courts will be sending the wrong message to all Toronto citizens if they let the murderer walk free. People should be outraged that murderers are allowed to walk the streets and possibly scurry off back to their terrorist country. This Murderer has no conscience and has or will continue this act of violence. The murderer has nothing to lose and will probably become a Al Quaida terrorist. The Justice system has shown their weakness to this murderer and now he and his acquaintances will hav very little respect for Canadian law. Slap him on the wrist!The streets are sometimes rougher than prison. Karma comes around

We agreee with your comments. We want justice for Ronald. No provocaction should have led to this. We visited the scene and cannot see how the killer developed accelration to have killed Ronald.
We found out that he had intention to kill. He broke the lock on Ronalds door justn prior to the killing.
His mother was told by Ronald previously that the killer made a call and threatened to kill Ronald.
Mohamed intended to kill Ronald and he did it. Had he not done it that day he would have done it later.If the Canadian justice system fails the grieving family here we pray that somehow he will meet justice.

"He said his father told him that Persaud attacked the man, who fled to his car. Persaud then punched the man again through the open driver's-side window.
After the driver closed his window, Lopez said, Persaud positioned himself in front of the vehicle and started banging on the car, trying to break the windshield. That's when the vehicle moved forward and ran over Persaud, Lopez said."
Ron intentionally went after Mohammad, after Mohammad tired to leave the scene. Ron repeatedly beat him through the drivers side window and used his body as a blockade preventing Mohammad from leaving and just walking away. Mohammad had no right to run him over, but Ron should not have instigated this matter further. Both parties are guilty. Its sad it cost a life. For it to be man slaughter there needs to be mens rea. A mental intent to kill. There is no proof Mohammad entered the altercation with the intention to kill someone according to news reports. This is criminal negligence, not murder.

Mohammad had all intention to kill. He had no reason to be at Ronalds apartment. Prior to meeting Ronald he made threatening calls to Ronald. If this man is not to blame then someone else from nowhere murdered Ronald. His intentions were crystal clear.
Anyone in their own frame of mind would have left the scene. Mohammad had no intention of leaving the scene as you implied - What was he doing there in the first place. There is proof that Mohammad had intension to kill otherwise he would not have had hit and run. He committed a crime, he knew what he did and fled from the scene.
The area was small to have developed any acceleration to kill yet he did it with the SUV.
How can you murder a person in cold blood and call this criminal negligence.
I will like someone explain to me what Mohammad was doing there. If the justice system of Canada fails, the man above will reach him with his punishment. I agree that there is an element of guilt on both sides but the major contributory factor is Mohammad intentionally killed Ronald and I see this as MURDER.

There is video evidence on what really happened there.
One is walking the streets with guilt written all over him. He killed and attempted to run away. His vehicle showed he was in direct control of all his actions. He moved form zero speed to a speed which killed Ronald in a confined space.
He had intention to kill him or leave the scene. He mowed Ronald down. I pray that someday someone do the same to him. Leave him feel the pain and grief that Ronalds kin are feeling now.
Until proven otherwise I will only accept that Mohammad had intentions to murder Ronald.
Somehow he or his kin will pay. Karma will see that justice is done.

I think that Ronald was brutally murdered by Mohammad. No matter what others think I am sure that Mohammad went to Ronald's condo with an intention to kill him.
He will have to pay for his deeds. I saw the grusome video at the first hearing and was annoyed at his bail.
The judge has given him freedom to commit another crime whist he is free.
I believe that he had no legal driving licence. These people should be driven off the roads.

It is a sad world that we live in. A young twenty eight year old has lost his life after a verbal argument!
I read all the reports and can only condemn what happened.
Mohammad has shown all signs of his intention to kill.
Firstly what was he doing there waiting for Ronald?
He had all opportunity to leave. He could have reversed his SUV but chose not to do so.
He deliberately mowed down Ronald.
He is walking the streets free in Toronto. I only wish that someone repays him by running over and drag him to his death.
The Canadian justice system has given him bail and an opportunity to flee from Canada. He deserve the death penalty fr the murder that he had committed.
God will see that this does not go unpaid. Someone of his kin will receice the same treatment. I pray for this to happen. An eye for an eye.

I am a mom and it breaks my heart
A mother to loose a child...the way she did
No one knows...what she went through to bring her son up to that age
And for someone out of nowhere to take his life
And then drove away after hitting him..leaving him to die
How can you feel sorry for someone like that?
In my eyes...it does not matter who started the argument..or what transpires....
This man had no right to do what he did
Does he know how much pain..and sorrow that family is feeling.loosing someone they love..and was loved by so many people
Whatever happens....he can never bring him back and that is something that family would have to live for the rest of their lives..
This man is guilty....

I agree wholeheartedly with you. The pain enormous moreso sine that mother of Ronald also lost her own mother only three month ago.
We cannot share the pain she must be going through. One day that killer or his kin will have to pay.
There is no reason for taking a life which he himself is incapable of creating He will be judged "Guilty".
Let him suffer and feel some of the pain he has caused.

Mohammad is roaming Toronto free as a bird after murdering Ronald Persaud. The jistice system has given him this freedom. He is guilty in the eyes of our "Maker". He will pay for his crime somehow.
Let him remember that he had wronged many by his intent to kill Ronald. He himself threatend Ronald. He went tothe condo with an intent to kill. Ronald's locks had been broken twice - who else could have done this?
Who drove without a legal driving licence. Insurance - I guess that lies with the parents.
He "hit and run". How many more criminal activities can be scored by Mohammad.
I hope that all of these be taken by the court in their punishment to him when the case is heard. He deserves nothing less than a life sentence.
We wait in anticipation of the verdict.
His parents may try to protect him. Let them know that Ronald had no such protection in his death.
I am annoyed that he had no legal licence,
insurance?? and allowed to kill in a SUV presumably owned by the father.
I would like to see him suffer for the pain caused when he dragged Ronald to death in such a small area.
We pray that justice be met.

===FIRST of all you need to UNDERSTAND what you’re reading!! The vehicle that Mohammed drove was an SUV. There’s no sane person that would have rolled his driver side window down enough for someone outside the vehicle to punch through. Obviously his window was up. SECOND Ronald positioned himself in front of the vehicle and started punching the windshield??! Are you seriously that stupid?? No please don’t answer that…it was a rhetorical question. That is not physically possible, even for someone who was as tall as him. Mohammed was in a vehicle that approx weight 5000 lbs he could have sat in the vehicle pulled out his phone and called 911 but he chose not to. He decided to put his foot on the gas pedal slap his vehicle into DRIVE and accelerate enough to run Ronald’s body over. After impact Mohammed then dragged Ronald’s body at least 7 to 8 meters from the door of the building to the drive way where Ronald's body was caught and then released only because there was a dip in the driveway. Then Mohammed continued on his merry way to leave his car in the GO station. What the hell was that about?? If the Good Samaritan was not there to follow him he would have claimed that some one probably stole his vehicle.(Of course that is only speculation…but is there any other explanation?) Direct quote from Mohammed was “I felt a bump…” there was more that was said on this but of course unfortunately we can’t disclose that info due to the media ban on this case. I hope to GOD that someone takes the initiative to do something to even the score. At least so that those who were a part of Ronald’s short lifetime can have some sort of satisfaction that justice was taken care of…since the government can’t or won’t do shit all about it.===

This is obviously a tragedy and really makes one step back and see similarities to other instances and you wonder if this has become the norm. I remember back in 2007 when the "Toronto Twelve" were apprehended as a terrorist cell with plans to blow up the CN Tower and kill as many innocents as they could in addition to, plotting to storm Parliament and behead the Prime Minister. How many of those 12 were then released on bail/ house arrest?

This is entirely different matter. This is indeed a tradegy for Ronald's kin but murder on Mohammad's part. The Toronto 12 were is political whilst this is deliberate murder. Where is the assosciation between the two incidents?? Are you saying Mohammad will be released from this!!
Let's think again the CN Tower was not blown up. Ronald died at the mercy of a SUV driver Mohammad who had no legal driving licence
He went to the scene to provove a row. I cannot see how you associte this incident with one which has not been comitted.
Please think hard.
