Alexander Vinogradsky’s Facebook posts share puns, poke fun at Gen Z and show off a trip to Tokyo Disneyland last year. In others, he is smiling or highlighting damaged cars in need of a tow.

But beneath the cheerful faces and overseas vacations, a constant menace lingered in Vinogradsky’s life: as a kingpin in the Toronto area’s tow truck underworld, he was a marked man.

Before he was gunned down March 28 outside a north-end Toronto plaza, he owned Paramount Towing, one of four outfits allegedly locked in a deadly turf war that prompted a major police crackdown in 2019 and 2020. The investigation prompted dozens of arrests — Vinogradsky’s included.

      Gen Z is like 28 at the eldest, I don’t understand why people think we’re still children.

        It will never stop. I still see shit about millennials not wanting to work, etc. it’s like, bitch we’re in our 40s and are starting to run things when the elders die off. Yes we’re just getting our start homes etc but just stfu and work on yourself for once instead making it everyone else’s problem.

        People fucking suck

        In case it’s not clear I’m not coming at you. I just don’t feel like conversing properly

          Didn’t see it as you coming at me, I totally agree, I also still see anti-millenial sentiments when millenials are all between 29 and 44 and the oldest Gen X are almost geriatric.
