The mayor of Toronto Rob Ford has been caught threatening to kill someone in footage obtained by a Canadian newspaper.
The expletive-ridden footage, which appears to have been captured on a camera phone, shows a suit-wearing Ford pacing a room and waving his arms around as he discusses the violent act.
"I'm going to kill that f**king guy, I'm telling you it's first-degree murder...he dies or I die brother," the Mayor is heard to say.
"When he's down I'll rip his f**king throat out. I'll poke his eyes out," the 44-year-old continues.
