Toronto’s mayor caught on video in violent rant

Rob Ford , the mayor of Canada’s largest city, has been caught on video in an impaired rant saying he is going to kill someone and “rip his f—ing throat out.”

Ford slurs his words as he staggers around an unknown dining room, apparently high, ranting gibberish and gesticulating wildly.

“I’m gonna kill that f—ing guy. I’m telling you, it’s first-degree murder,” Ford rages as someone in the room secretly uses a cellphone to film the chief magistrate’s addled tirade.

Moments after the Star published the video online, Ford emerged from his office and apologized.
