Toronto Star: Rob Ford 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.

A new video showing a visibly outraged Rob Ford in an expletive-laced tirade threatening to kill someone is extremely embarrassing, the embattled mayor said Thursday.
As he has done previously, Ford told a crush of reporters outside his office he was drunk at the time, and called the outburst a mistake.
“Obviously, I was extremely, extremely inebriated,” Ford said within minutes of the video being made public.
“I’ve made mistakes. I don’t know what to say.”
The context of the video is unknown and it’s unclear who the target of Ford’s wrath is.
The mayor called the video “extremely embarrassing” without explaining exactly why he was so enraged, although he said he didn’t wish anyone to be in a similar state of intoxication.
