Authorities in South Carolina say they are investigating shooting at a club in Hampton County early Sunday that left at least nine people injured. It was the third mass shooting in the U.S. over the Easter holiday weekend.

The State Law Enforcement Division said in an email there were no reported fatalities in the early shooting at the club in Hampton County. No information was immediately available on the severity of the injuries. The SLED says it was asked to investigate by the Hampton County Sheriff's Office. Hampton County is roughly 129 kilometres west of Charleston, S.C.

 

In Pittsburgh, Pa., meanwhile, two minors were killed and at least eight people were injured during a shooting at a house party. The shooting, which followed an altercation, happened around 12:30 a.m. during a party at a short-term rental property where hundreds of people had gathered — the "vast majority" of them underage, Chief Scott Schubert of the Pittsburgh police department told reporters.

The shootings on Sunday come just a day after gunfire erupted at a busy mall in the state capital of Columbia, S.C. Nine people were shot and five people were injured while trying to flee the scene at Columbiana Centre, Columbia Police Chief W.H. "Skip" Holbrook said Saturday. The victims ranged in age from 15 to 73.

The Columbia Police Department announced the arrest of 22-year-old Jewayne M. Price, who was one of three people initially detained by law enforcement as a person of interest in the mall shooting. Price is scheduled to have a bond hearing at 2 p.m. Sunday on charges of unlawful carrying of a pistol. It is not immediately known if Price has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

Police said the 73-year-old victim continues to receive medical treatment, but the other victims have been released from local hospitals or will be released shortly.

"We don't believe this was random," Holbrook said. "We believe they knew each other and something led to the gunfire."

Columbia Police Chief W.H. “Skip” Holbrook said 22-year-old Jewayne M. Price, who was one of three people initially detained by law enforcement as a person of interest, remains in police custody and is expected to be charged with unlawful carrying of a pistol.

A little more is reported here including a photo of the suspect.

So where is the BLM crowd now?

If they were to be taken seriously they would be protesting every black person shot, not just the ones shot by police.

Diversity is our strength…….

Police have arrested four men in connection with a hit-and-run collision in Toronto that left a 29-year-old woman from Scotland dead.

70c8fc80

On April 14, officers with the Toronto police were called to the Spadina Avenue and King Street West area for reports that a pedestrian had been struck by a vehicle.

According to police, the driver of the car — a white Mercedes AMG GT convertible with a red interior — fled the scene.

According to police, 41-year-old Sinesha Bogojevic from Toronto, 44-year-old Milorad Nikolic from Mississauga and 37-year-old Zachariasz Billik of Toronto were arrested.

Officers said they were each charged with failing to stop at the scene of an accident causing death, public mischief and obstructing police.

According to police, 42-year-old Ertug Direk surrendered to officers on Tuesday.

Global News has learned the accused also goes by the surname Direkoglu.

Police allege he was the driver of the vehicle.

He has been charged with dangerous operation causing death, failing to stop at the scene of an accident causing death, public mischief and obstructing police.

The accused was also charged in 2014 in connection with an investigation wherein York Regional Police seized more than $500,000 worth of cocaine in what was called Project Tugboat.

He appeared in court Wednesday afternoon. He is expected to appear again on April 22.


 

And it has also been discovered our “driver” had a previous history with law enforcement:

Quote

One of the bullets slammed into the shoulder of the driver of the black Acura who was allegedly trying to run him down near Islington Ave. and Rexdale Blvd. on May 4, 2004.

 

The driver was a man named Ertug “Tuggy” Direkoglu.

 

The province’s Special Investigations Unit — which investigates all deaths and injuries involving cops — cleared the Toronto Police officer.

That remains me a lot of Victoria. No sooner have people settled here than they want to pull up the draw bridge across the straits so that the great unwashed can't move over here from the mainland.

Diversity is our Strength 

 

For 10 long days in March 2017, a two-year-old Ottawa boy fended for himself in a small public-housing unit after his mother was raped, strangled to death, and left in a bathtub.

 

He lived on Cheerios and water — even pushed a chair to reach the bathroom sink to drink. His Star Wars cup was on the sink countertop, an arm’s reach from the bathtub.

 

He still had a diaper on when a maintenance man opened the apartment door 10 days later on March 22.

 

The apartment smelled like death and human waste, the boy was dirty and hungry but remarkably, physically fine.

 

“I think he was just happy to see somebody,” maintenance man Wayne Richards testified at Mohamad Barkhadle’s first-degree murder trial on Thursday.

 

Barkhadle is on trial for the March 12, 2017 killing of a 35-year-old single mom. (Her identity and her son’s is shielded by a publication ban.)

 

In an efficient opening address by Assistant Crown Attorney Carl Lem, the jury heard about the unsettling events on the night in question.

Let’s see …. Where to start?? Diversity is our strength or the liberal attempt to ban hand guns from licensed owners?

https://www.insauga.com/43-armed-robberies-in-one-month-in-mississauga-and-brampton/

Quote

According to police data, the majority of these robberies (31) were done with firearms, while 12 were listed as “robbery with other offensive weapons.”

A few notable armed robberies and carjackings in Peel have made headlines recently, including an incident earlier this week in which a Brampton man allegedly entered a vehicle, pointed a firearm at a grandmother and demanded her belongings while her two grandkids were sitting in the back seat.

Fortunately, there were no injuries and no property was taken.

Another recent incident saw nine people face dozens of charges after police busted an armed robbery ring in Mississauga that targeted employees as they carried large amounts of cash to and from their workplace.

I'm a bit surprised the CBC is reporting any of this, even snippets of it. By doing so now, they show both their incompetence and complicity. Way too little and way too late IMO. 

Government lawyers spent a lot of time in court suppressing the release of warrant information (following warrant execution when it would normally be made public) and CBC played right along the entire time. There should be criminal charges and jail time here IMO.

Don't be fooled about the briefing process.... JT knew all of the information (dribbling out 2 years after the fact) literally days after the event.  

I've lost interest in the case findings now, all I want to see is a detailed inquiry into the deliberate and premeditated liberal suppression and lies, and how media outlets aided and abetted the evil empire.

What all of it says to me is that the RCMP has no bloody business in provincial LE. We need a provincial police force that works for, with, and is responsible to the jurisdiction that empowers it. I would purge the RCMP from the province and not a single member (not one) would ever be hired by the provincial force.  

So glad I'm retired, over the years I worked with them a fair bit (mostly interdiction) and I now regret every single moment of it. I think it will take 32 f*&^%$# years in the shower to wash the stink off me.

And now that people have been distracted by the inquiry in the Use of the Emergency Measures, the sleight of hand continues with the mass causality commission:

Quote

Meanwhile, criticisms have also befallen Canada’s only other active federally sponsored inquiry. The Mass Casualty Commission, an inquiry into the April 2020 mass shooting that killed 22 people in rural Nova Scotia, has been plagued by accusations of mismanagement or bias, particularly after a raft of evidentiary documents mysteriously disappeared from the commission’s official website.

FIRST READING: Another Liberal gun policy that neatly ignores where the guns come from

Tristin Hopper - 3h ago

The vast majority of Canadian handgun crimes are committed with firearms smuggled in from the U.S., such as these pistols seized at a Manitoba border crossing in 2011.
© Provided by National PostThe vast majority of Canadian handgun crimes are committed with firearms smuggled in from the U.S., such as these pistols seized at a Manitoba border crossing in 2011.

TOP STORY

 

With Liberal officials now openly mulling the idea of a nationwide ban on handguns, they are simultaneously pursuing reforms that would slacken the penalties for cross-border gun-smugglers.

 

And according to police in Canada’s most violence-afflicted cities, it’s these smuggled guns that are a far deadlier problem for Canada than the legal ones have ever been.

Starting in 2018, the Trudeau government began examining the possibility of a “full ban on handguns and assault weapons in Canada.” So far, this has only yielded proposals to allow cities to ban handguns at the municipal level — a measure that, while welcomed in the likes of Toronto and Montreal, has been vocally opposed in Alberta.

This week, senior sources quoted by the National Post’s John Ivison said that a total handgun ban remains a “last resort” in the result that more localized bans don’t take.

Meanwhile, the House of Commons is still considering Bill C-5, an act that would repeal a host of mandatory minimum penalties, including those for smuggling firearms.

Bill C-5 was drafted to address what it called “systemic racism in Canada’s criminal justice system.” By reducing the amount of prison time for criminal offences, reads a backgrounder, the idea is to reduce the “overincarceration rate of Indigenous peoples” as well as for other “marginalized Canadians.”

While the bill would reduce prison time for non-violent offences such as drug trafficking or selling black market tobacco, it also repeals the minimum sentences for more than a dozen violent crimes ranging from aggravated sexual assault with a firearm and “hostage taking, use of a firearm.” Four of the bill’s repeals also relate to the gun-smuggling trade, including the charge of “weapons trafficking.”

Nevertheless, it’s smuggled guns that seem to be comprising an ever-growing share of handguns used in crimes.

In February, Toronto Police Deputy Chief Myron Demkiw told the House of Commons public safety committee that of the crime guns his department has been able to trace, 86 per cent were illegal firearms smuggled in from the United States.

When asked about federal efforts to curb Canadian legal gun ownership through buyback programs, Denkiw replied that it “is certainly not going to deal with the crime problem we’re facing in Toronto, as it relates to the use of criminal handguns.”

As far back as 2008, a report by the Province of British Columbia similarly found that the “vast majority” of guns being used illegally in their province originated in the United States.

A 2021 investigation by CityTV outlined just how easy it was to get illegal guns into Ontario from the neighbouring U.S. states of Michigan or New York. Moving firearms into the Greater Toronto area could be as simple as throwing a bag over a border fence to be retrieved later. Illegal firearms were also moved through cross-border First Nations reserves and via secret compartments in private cars — some of which were not even known to the car’s owners.

With vanishingly few exceptions, legal handguns exist in Canada only as antiques or sporting equipment. Any firearm with a barrel shorter than 470 mm cannot be used for hunting, which means that pistols (or “restricted” firearms) occupy a particularly strict realm of Canadian law.

While an unloaded long gun can be kept in the trunk of a vehicle or even legally carried in most jurisdictions, restricted firearms can only really be kept in a safe, at a certified range — or in a vehicle driving between one of those two places.

All of which brings us to the helicopter.

The helicopter is not the kind of thing that the RCMP or the commission appear to be eager to discuss in public.

According to the GC Surplus documents, on January 20, 2015 Wortman - operating as buyer 1122342 — offered $235,000 for a 1979 Sikorsky S76A helicopter. The twin-engine medium helicopter is like those used by the coast guard, police in provinces outside Nova Scotia, air ambulances or by executives. It can seat up to 12 passengers. The helicopter can fly 740 kilometres on a tank of fuel. 

Wortman didn't win the bid for the helicopter, but the very fact that he had tried to get it raises obvious questions, like why would a Dartmouth denturist be interested in such an exotic machine?

To attempt to answer that question would cause the MCC to veer into a territory it appears determined to assiduously avoid - Wortman's criminal operations and what the police knew and didn't know about them.

Just about everyone who knew Wortman in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were keenly aware that he had long been involved in smuggling cigarettes, alcohol, drugs and guns, among other things, across the border with Maine.

The only ones who didn't seem to know about all this, if you believe their story, are the police, especially the Mounties.

Drone carrying 11 guns found stuck in tree near Canada-U.S. border in southwestern Ontario

Published May 2, 2022 8:46 a.m. MDT

Police in southwestern Ontario are investigating after they said a drone carrying handguns was found stuck in a tree late last week.

Lambton County OPP said officers were contacted around 8:30 a.m. on Friday about a large drone that was stuck in a tree along the St. Clair River near Port Lambton.

When officers arrived, they found the drone and removed it from a tree with the help of the St. Clair Township Fire Department.

A bag containing 11 handguns was attached to the drone, which investigators believe came from the U.S.

Should we have expected anything else from this woke feminist government??

The latest “evidence” from the mass casualty commission in NS:

https://nationalpost.com/news/canada/mass-shootings-caused-by-masculinity-says-report-commissioned-by-nova-scotia-inquiry

Quote

Our research suggests that mass shootings are a gendered issue: they fundamentally have to do with the relationship between men, masculinity, and guns,” read the report tabled this week by the inquiry.

Mass Shootings and Masculinity, drafted by two University of California sociologists, told the commissioners that mass shootings are inherently “enactments of masculinity,” and that in addition to curbing gun ownership, governments must pursue “cultural change.”

Quote

Gun ownership, gun-related fatalities, and gun violence more generally are all gendered phenomena,” it reads.

Researchers note at several points throughout the paper that their theories may have little bearing on Canada. While attributing American mass shootings to a protection-centric U.S. gun culture, the paper also says that Canada seems to have a “pre-1970 U.S. gun culture” which primarily treats firearms as hunting implements. Not mentioned is that in Canada, unlike the United States, it is technically forbidden to own firearms for the purposes of personal protection.

In one of the report’s few direct mentions of the Nova Scotia massacre, the authors write only that it “resists easy classification.”

 

Mass Casualty Commission hearings first began in February, and have faced heavy criticism from the families of massacre victims for its apparent reticence to question police actions during the 13 hours of the massacre.

Perhaps most notably, the inquiry decided not to include evidence from a victim’s FitBit showing that she had a pulse for more than eight hours after RCMP members declared her dead.

Hundreds of documents related to the inquiry have also been mysteriously removed from the Mass Casualty Commission’s website, including testimony from RCMP members criticizing the understaffing at select detachments and even internal accusations that one member allowed the shooter to “get away.”
