Cop shot dead in Windsor
Two 18-year-olds are arrested after gunfire is exchanged in a Mac's Milk parking lot.
By Canadian Press, Sat., May 6, 2006
Windsor -- Residents here were stunned yesterday after witnessing a daylight shootout in a residential neighbourhood that ended with a veteran plainclothes police officer lying dead on a sidewalk and two teens in custody.
The victim was 37-year-old Const. John ATKINSON, a 14-year veteran of the force and a father of a six-year-old daughter and nine-year-old son.
ATKINSON was on duty when he spotted some suspicious men at a Mac's Milk convenience store and went into action, said Windsor Police Chief Glenn STANNARD.
He was struck by a bullet, but was able to return fire before the suspects ran off. Police later arrested two 18-year-old Windsor men. They have not yet been charged.
STANNARD said the community and police are outraged by the shooting, which is like nothing they'd seen before.
"Although we have had in our history three officers killed as a result of car accidents, to the best of my knowledge, this is the first officer in the history of more than 120 years of the Windsor Police Service that an officer has been murdered," he said.
One of ATKINSON's close Friends informed his wife of the shooting, which happened shortly after 2 p.m.
STANNARD, Windsor Mayor Eddie FRANCIS and other members of the police force visited the officer's family.
"What do you say?" STANNARD said about speaking with ATKINSON's wife and two young children. "You do what your heart leads you with. It's a tragic thing. You share tears and you share hugs.
"The policing community, for those who don't know, is a very close-knit community and police officers were there and they'll share their times with the family."
The shooting unfolded before many witnesses, who were shocked by what they saw.
The owner of the Mac's Milk declined to comment on the shooting, saying she was worried for her life.
A store employee identified as Emma said she saw the two men in the parking lot when suddenly she heard gunfire.
"We heard gunshots and a guy was bleeding from his mouth, and then we were told he was a policeman," she said.
Dennis ROCHON said he was sitting on his balcony in a nearby apartment building when he heard three loud shots, which he first thought was a car backfiring. He went outside to investigate and saw the victim covered in blood and lying on the sidewalk.
"There was no movement," he said. "There was blood all over the place. It looked like he got shot in the throat and the side of the chest. You could tell he was dead."
A man, who identified himself only as Terry, said after the shooting, the victim stumbled for three or four metres before collapsing.
"He tried to get up and he fell again."
Lloyd MENARD, who was in the store at the time, said onlookers couldn't believe their eyes or their ears.
"At first, a couple of people thought they were just like poppers on the ground, but no, it was actually gunfire," he said. "My truck's got blood all over it, so those kids must have shot him right there."
One local resident said people in the city will likely be shaken up as they are not used to gun violence, despite their proximity to the United States.
"This is very rare indeed for Windsor," said Patty HANDYSIDES of Windsor radio station CKLW. " Even though we are right across the river from Detroit, gun crime is low in Windsor, and certainly death by gun is very, very rare."
At least eight elementary schools and one high school in the area were initially locked down in the shooting's aftermath, keeping as many as 3,400 students indoors. A nearby day-care centre was also put under lockdown.
By 5 p.m., all students were allowed to leave, although they were told not to walk home alone or stop and play, said Supt. Steve SCHNIEDER/SNIDER/SNYDER of the Greater Essex County District school board.
Nearby residents were also advised to remain in their homes.
Ontario Premier Dalton McGUINTY released a statement last night in praise of ATKINSON and the work of all police officers.
"The loss of one of our officers is a tragedy for all of us. I don't know that there are words strong or eloquent enough to capture the courage it takes to put one's self in harm's way, in order to keep others safe," he said.

Officer shot dead, 2 teens in custody
By Peter EDWARDS in Windsor Nicolaas VAN RIJN in Toronto with files from Scott ROBERTS, Camille ROSS and Canadian Press, Page A1
A Windsor police officer who "couldn't wait to go to work" was shot dead yesterday afternoon while coming to the aid of a harassed family operating a Mac's Milk convenience store in a residential section of the border city.
Two 18-year-old male suspects are in custody and a gun has been seized, Windsor police Insp. Greg RENAUD told a news conference last night.
Const. John ATKINSON, 37, the father of two young children, is believed to be the first officer in the more than 120-year history of the Windsor force to be killed on duty, said Windsor police Chief Glenn STANNARD, who noted three other officers have died in car accidents.
As word of the 14-year police veteran's death rippled across the border city, the shock was palpable.
"Today the entire city mourns the loss of a dedicated individual, a committed individual who put service above self," said Windsor Mayor Eddie FRANCIS.
Police said the incident, at 2: 05 p.m. in a parking lot near Seminole St. and Pillette Rd., in a residential neighbourhood about half a dozen blocks south of the Detroit River, began when ATKINSON approached two men.
According to local residents, ATKINSON, who lived in the neighbourhood, was responding to a call for help from the Middle Eastern family who operated the milk store. They'd complained of being harassed by "white kids," neighbours said; when they told ATKINSON about it he suggested they call him if it happened again.
They did, and he responded quickly to confront the two men, neighbours said, producing his badge and identification. That's when one of the two men allegedly pulled a gun and shot him.
STANNARD said ATKINSON "approached these individuals and during this time a firearm was produced and Const. ATKINSON was shot. Const. ATKINSON was struck by a bullet, but was able to return fire."
"The two suspects," STANNARD added, "were seen fleeing the area on foot after the shooting, leaving the officer lying on the sidewalk. And it is possible, when the suspects were fleeing, some items were discarded, such as clothing."
Two 18-year-old Windsor men -- uninjured -- were arrested shortly afterwards during a massive police search, and a firearm was recovered, but police won't say if the weapon was related to the shooting.
Investigators also wouldn't say how many times the officer, assigned to the provincial anti-terrorism section, was hit. But local residents said ATKINSON was hit at least twice, once in the throat and chest.
Dennis ROCHON was sitting on his balcony in a nearby apartment building when he heard three loud shots. Rushing outside, he found ATKINSON on the pavement.
"There was no movement," ROCHON said. "There was blood all over the place. It looked like he got shot in the throat and the side of the chest. You could tell he was dead."
Another man, identified only as Terry, said he saw ATKINSON struggling, stumbling three or four metres before collapsing.
"He tried to get up, and he fell again," Terry said.
Lloyd MENARD, in the store at the time, thought he was hearing things when the gunfire broke out.
"At first, a couple of people thought they were just like poppers on the ground, but no, it was actually gunfire," he said. "My truck's got blood all over it, so those kids must have shot him right there."
After the two suspects were taken into custody, Special Weapons and Tactics teams scoured the neighbourhood for a possible third participant in the shooting, but police later said there may only have been the two suspects.
ATKINSON, a senior constable who started with the force as a cadet, was known as a "good cop," STANNARD said.
The chief, FRANCIS, a chaplain and several of ATKINSON's on-the-force Friends visited the slain officer's wife, Shelley, and his children yesterday afternoon in an effort to console the family. ATKINSON's daughter Nicole turned 7 this week; his son Mitchell is 9.
During the family visit, STANNARD said, tears flowed freely.
"You do what your heart leads you with," STANNARD told reporters last night when asked about the visit.
"It's a tragic thing, and I think the best I can do is say you share tears, and you share hugs."
STANNARD said he and the Windsor police honour guard will be in Toronto, as planned, for the annual memorial ceremony of remembrance at the Ontario Police Memorial tomorrow at 10: 45 a.m. The memorial, at Grosvenor St. and Queen's Park Circle E., commemorates Ontario police officers slain on duty.
"Our honour guard and I will be attending… obviously with heavy hearts," the chief said.

Nathan MENDELSOHN, Scholar (1917-2006)
Absent-minded polymath who taught mathematics at the University of Manitoba for 57 years made his name in combinatorics, a dazzling bit of science that no Sudoku puzzle can be without
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Nathan MENDELSOHN may well have been the absent-minded professor from central casting. He would go to work by car and return home by bus. His wife would send him shopping and he would come back with the wrong items ("I'll cook what he brings," she once said with a shrug). And there was the time he took his family to the movies and agreed to stand in the rain to buy the tickets while his wife and two sons took shelter indoors. Prof. MENDELSOHN decided he didn't want to see the movie after all, so he drove home.
Then there was the brilliant mathematician who saw beauty in the abstract. The Order of Canada member who made his own furniture, jewellery and wine, and delighted in performing hypnosis and magic tricks. The one who never wrote anything down because he didn't have to. With his sly sense of humour, he would appreciate the designation of polymath.
Prof. MENDELSOHN taught mathematics at the University of Manitoba for 57 years, ending his career in 2005 as distinguished professor emeritus. He headed the math department for about 20 years, authored 140 research papers -- about double the average professor's career output -- and was a leading light in a branch of pure mathematics called combinatorics, which deals with the abstract relationships of objects to each other. One application is the math that underlies the popular Sudoku puzzles.
His and others' theories bore practical applications in such areas as scheduling, cryptography and software testing, often decades after they were promulgated. Helen, his wife of 62 years, had another name for her husband's work: "dreamy mathematics" (though she had no qualms pronouncing that she "really" hated math).
Prof. MENDELSOHN worked in other fields of mathematics, including computing and numerical analysis, graph and design theory, and many branches of algebra. But it was combinatorics for which he was best known.
"It is probably safe to say that there is not a combinatorialist or universal algebraist in the world who has not heard of Nathan MENDELSOHN, and that probably very few of them have not quoted at least one of his papers or worked in an area of research which he has helped develop," stated the Royal Society of Canada in awarding the Henry Marshall Tory Medal to Prof. MENDELSOHN in Mathematics, he declared in a 1985 National Film Board short, "is my vocation, my avocation, my hobby, my playground. I do other things for relaxation -- I enjoy them -- but my greatest pleasure is working with mathematical concepts."
He first encountered that pleasure in Grade 3 when he became aware of two things: the power of immediate recall, and that he knew more math than his teacher did without really trying.
His father, Sam, an ironworker, came to Toronto with his four children in 1918 to join relatives after they had been burned out of their tenement in Brooklyn. The clan settled on Euclid Avenue, and its descendants note the connection to the ancient Greek mathematician.
Young Nathan amused himself by taking apart clocks (usually putting them back together). He was awarded a four-year scholarship to the University of Toronto, where he completed bachelor's and master's degrees and, in 1941, his doctorate.
While still an undergraduate, he belonged to the team that won the William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition, said to be the toughest math test in the world. Meantime, he was advised to take up magic as a way to calm tremors in his hands, and he studied the hucksters and pitchmen at the Canadian National Exhibition. His sleight of hand landed him second prize at an International Brotherhood of Magicians contest, just behind a young amateur named Johnny Carson.
But there was a war on, and Prof. MENDELSOHN's talents were needed in defence research. He was enjoined from talking about the work he volunteered bits and pieces much later -- but his family believes it involved code-breaking and artillery simulations, continuing the age-old use of mathematics for military applications. (A similar stint in the early 1960s at the Rand Corp. was even more hush-hush.)
At war's end, he headed to Kingston, Ontario, to teach at Queen's University, where he stayed for three years.
Asked about the short interval, his son, Eric, a professor of math at the U of T, explained: "He understood that, as a Jew, he would never get a permanent position. Queen's already had a Jewish professor in the department."
So he settled in Winnipeg, where the University of Manitoba welcomed any and all to build its fledgling math department, and where Prof. MENDELSOHN became deeply involved in the city's vibrant Jewish community. Raised in a modern Orthodox family, he was drawn more to Judaism's teachings on morality than its ritual. Evidence for the existence of God, he reasoned, was "circumstantial" not quite enough for a scientist.
But with a salary of about $3,000 a year, he was forced to work during the summers, driving to Quebec City with his family for teaching jobs.
He first came to international notice after co-authoring a paper in 1961 on Latin squares -- grids in which no two numbers may appear in the same row or column (essentially a numeric Sudoku puzzle.) Tough enough on a standard 9x9 grid -- but Prof. MENDELSOHN raised eyebrows by successfully constructing five pairs of 12x12 grids. Visualized in three dimensions, with each grid placed over its pair, the numbers repeated neither in rows and columns nor up and down. And it was all done without a computer.
"That was absolutely extraordinary," said Michael Doob, whom Prof. MENDELSOHN hired to teach math at the University of Manitoba. "He was known for idiosyncrasies, but he taught without any notes at all. And I don't think he had a mean bone in his body. He was a real mensch."
Prof. MENDELSOHN forged Friendships with some of the leading names in the rarefied world of higher math, including the eccentric Hungarian number theorist Paul Erdos, who made a habit of showing up on fellow mathematicians' doorsteps unannounced and with no money.
Prof. MENDELSOHN also built his own cabinets. "He'd make four or five pieces of furniture and then stop," his son recalled. "He was like that with math, too. He was more interested in finding a new problem and solving it than worrying about one classical problem."
Two modern theories bear Prof. MENDELSOHN's name. Both of them, said his son, are "just a genius's slight twist on an old idea to get mathematics to give up one of her profound secrets."
Prof. MENDELSOHN guided graduate students until a year ago, and he never stopped doodling on the proverbial napkin. The page proofs for his last paper arrived the morning he died.
Nathan Saul MENDELSOHN was born in New York on April 14, 1917. He died in Toronto on July 4, 2006, of hepatitis C contracted through tainted blood. He was 89. He leaves two siblings, two sons, five grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. His wife died in January of 2005.
