There was a double homicide in Richmond B.C. this weekend. Both were shot. The RCMP at one point had the house surrounded and it is believed the suspect was in the residence. Was this a barricaded suspect situation? We don’t know. How did it end? We don’t know. We do know the two shooting victims were “laid out and stunned onlookers” according to a CTV News report. Was it gang related? We don’t know. Was it a stranger shooting up a home in a residential area in suburbia? We don’t know. Was it a domestic dispute? We don’t know. The RCMP said there was no reason for the public to be concerned for their safety. But other than that, said precious little about what went on. We don’t even know if the suspect was in custody, although the circumstances seem to indicate that. But when asked the question by a CTV news reporter, she was referred to the Integrated Homicide Investigation Unit (IHIT). Conveniently, they didn’t respond to enquiries. Social media was abuzz after the incident and the flimsiness of the RCMP’s released info which generated much speculation. Needless to say the speculation was not based in any known facts but it sprouted and grew as the weekend went on. Some of the speculation was the homicides may have even involved RCMP Members. As I write this, nearly 48 hours after the RCMP received the call alerting them to the shooting, we still don’t have any details to stem the speculation no matter how wild...
It's been amusing watching the political left set their hair on fire over the Atlanta shootings.It must have been a hate crime they claim. After all, they were all Asians. Well except for the two found-ins in the wrong place at the wrong time, folks whom the left simply ignore. Its embarrassing really. First off, the Asians involved were the furthest thing from the outstanding citizens killed by a depraved killer. Well, he was nothing of the sort. He is a disturbed young man obsessed with pornography and sex in general with whomever he can get it. The Asians killed were . . how to be gentle here. . .ladies who give rub and tugs. These shops are all over the place and yes Canada too. They're a dime a dozen across Canadian cities. Remember the sainted Jack Layton? His 2010 election for the Prime Minister's job came unglued when he got found naked in one of these shops in the 700 block of Dundas Street in Toronto. He tried to claim when the police came in on a child sex trafficking investigation he was only there for a shiatsu. While standing, talking to a naked man the officer could barely contain his mirth. Tip: if you are going to claim you are only in a massage parlour for a shiatsu massage, don't get naked without a towel. I don't blame the women in these places.They are just trying to earn a living. Without English or marketable skills, this is what they are left with. But, the blame...
