For anyone who thinks none of this was previously reported to the RCMP, or that the police (and government) weren't cooperating in a coverup. If you have even the slightest clue about about classified briefings, you know that JT knew all about it days after the event. All the actions undertaken by them after the fact were deliberate and premeditated... think about that.

We knew about two of the specific weapon complaints made to police prior to the (I can barely bring myself to type the words) Mass Casualty Inquiry... good Lord, only the worst of liberal scum would ever think up a name like that.

I didn't know about the third. There has to be (and I mean has to be) more to this story than is being considered by the inquiry. I'm betting this creature was a CI protected by the RCMP and government. If that's not the case, the incompetence here is beyond breathtaking and rises to the breach of public trust threshold.  

Take a moment and ask yourself what would happen if we flew airplanes with that level of proficiency and attention to detail.

Now we know why government lawyers spent so much time in court suppressing warrant and investigative information. Not only were they directly culpable in the outcome, they used the outcome itself to bully responsible gun owners and ban firearms based on nothing more than the colour of the stock. 

Put in context, that amounts to banning your car because it has racing stripes (the stripes will cause you to speed).

If there is a word for all of this (and I include everything the liberals have done in the last couple of years) other than evil, I can't fathom what it is. I know what it isn't though, and that's accidental incompetence. This is actually proof of competence and proof of deliberate actions based on knowledge of events.... all of which was deliberately suppressed for the magic timeline of two years. Liberal voters seem incapable of connecting dots over time.

That timeline seems to be in play across the board now, because it works. Voters wear this IMO, so WDYTWGTH? Jt is way smarter than US demonrats, they could never have pulled this off. The last piece of the puzzle is that JT could never have pulled it off without the media and RCMP. Here you see the unholy trinity of government, media and national security force on full display.

If you want more, it's yours for the asking. You can vote on policy... or not, Crazy Island is lovely in the spring.

Road rage eh? I'll be pretty surprised if it turns out to be that.

CBC is on the road rage bandwagon too. This will later (and quietly) evolve into a gang related incident... likely a battle between ethnic gangs over turf/drugs. In the mean time, it will be exploited to full effect by the liberals. Multiple liberal news outlets all saying the same thing at the same time is part of that process, it highlights the intent:

'This should never have happened': Friends, family mourn Calgary mother of 5 killed in road rage incident

You have a government dedicated to going after law abiding competitive shooters, a police department proficient at arresting pastors, and a court system that provides murderers better bail conditions than they do members of the clergy. There can be no other outcome here except more of the same.

I can only conclude that voters want more of this... and all you need to do is plot the trajectory to see that they'll get it. Lot's of unknown details here, the leap to road rage is useful propaganda that can be leveraged to "keep Canadians safe" and the "it should never have happened" angle is an opportunity not to be missed.

How do I know that? Well, actually I don't, but if I was a fraud, a liar, had an agenda and could control the unholy trinity (government, media, police), it's exactly what I would do.

Alternatively, I guess you could spin this as an automobile issue... stupid people shouldn't be able to own cars. It's every bit as valid a concept as the one they are about to exploit.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Twenty people were injured in two shootings in downtown Milwaukee near an entertainment district where thousands of people had been watching the Bucks play the Celtics in the NBA's Eastern Conference semifinals, authorities said.

None of the injuries from either shooting Friday night were believed to be life-threatening.

The first shooting, involving three victims, occurred adjacent to the Deer District — an entertainment district with numerous bars and restaurants where large crowds often assemble for major sporting events.

The Milwaukee Fire Department said authorities took two people to a hospital, a 30-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl, and a third person drove to a hospital. Police said a 29-year-old man was in custody.

Seventeen more people were injured in a second shooting about two hours later, which happened a few blocks away. Ten people were taken into custody and nine guns were recovered, WTMJ-TV reported.

There was no immediate indication whether the two shootings were related or involved fans who were watching the game.

Witnesses told WTMJ-TV that they saw a fight outside a bar following the basketball game.

Bill Reinemann, a parking attendant at lot adjacent to Deer District, said he heard gunshots but didn’t see anyone get shot or see the shooter during the earlier shooting.

“It sounded like six to eight gunshots,” he said “It was close.”

After the shots were fired, scores of fans began running toward the Deer District, he said.

Reinemann, who has worked the lot for 18 years, remained at his post even as fearful Bucks fans ran past him.

“I sat in my chair here the whole while,” he said.

“The incident took place outside of the Deer District area. We direct all questions to the Milwaukee Police Department,” Bucks spokesman Barry Baum said.

Boston defeated Milwaukee in the game to force a Game 7 in the series.

At least seven people have been killed in a shooting at a supermarket in New York state, US media report.

Police are at the scene in the city of Buffalo and say a suspect has been taken into custody.

Officers believe the gunman entered the supermarket on Saturday afternoon before opening fire with a rifle, according to the Associated Press.

Multiple people were shot in the incident, police said, without giving further details.

But unnamed law enforcement officials told US media outlets, including NBC News and the Associated Press, that at least seven people had been killed.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul said she was monitoring the situation and urged residents to avoid the area.

Texas shooting: Fifteen killed in attack at US primary school

Fifteen people have died in a shooting at a primary school in Texas, says Governor Greg Abbott.

The 18-year-old gunman killed 14 students and one teacher at Robb Elementary School in the city of Uvalde.

The governor said the suspect was armed with a handgun and possibly a rifle in the attack.

Governor Abbott says the suspect is deceased, and it is believed that responding officers killed him.

The public were asked to stay away as police investigate the crime scene.

Shootings at primary schools, where pupils range in age from five to 11, are still relatively rare.

 

The attack on Tuesday comes amid a national rise in gun violence.

Governor Abbott identified the attacker as a local 18-year old, who he said "shot and killed, horrifically, incomprehensibly, 14 students and killed a teacher".

"He himself is deceased, and it is believed that responding officers killed him," he added.

"It is believed that two responding officers were struck by rounds, but have no serious injuries."

The gunman may have also killed his grandmother at the beginning of the shooting rampage, according to local US media.

The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District - around 85 miles (135km) west of the city of San Antonio - told the BBC that students had been evacuated from the school.

 

Local hospitals disclosed that students from the school were being treated by emergency services.

A 66-year-old woman was being treated at a hospital in San Antonio, and was in a critical condition, hospital officials said earlier.

The Uvalde Memorial Hospital posted on Facebook that 13 children had been taken to hospital "via ambulances or buses".

Two "individuals" were dead when they arrived at hospital, the Facebook post said earlier.

Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin told ABC News in a text message "this is a very bad situation".

The FBI is aiding in the investigation, according to CBS.

 

The last day of classes for students in the school district was scheduled for Thursday. Seniors at the local high school in Uvalde, a community of about 16,000 residents, are due to graduate on Friday.

School shootings have become recurring emergencies in the US, with 26 recorded last year, according to EdWeek, an education trade publication.

Active shooter lockdown drills are a common part of the school curriculum, from primary to high school.

The 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut shocked Americans. Twenty of the 26 victims in that attack, which was carried out by a 20-year-old, were between the ages of five and six.

A 2020 report from the US Government Accountability Office found that about two-thirds of all school shootings happen at the high school level, and that shootings in elementary schools are most commonly accidental.

Police investigate two separate shootings

We are investigating two shootings that occurred today in the communities of Acadia and Lower Mount Royal.

Acadia Shooting

At approximately 11:30 a.m., on Monday, May 23, 2022, we received multiple calls from citizens reporting gun shots in the 500 block of Heritage Drive S.E. Upon arrival, officers found what appeared to be firearm casings on scene and circulated the area for suspects. A male victim was located in the area with what appeared to be a gun shot wound to his leg and was taken to Foothills Medical Centre in serious but stable condition.

Police continue to look for two male suspects that were last seen leaving the area on foot.

Lower Mount Royal Shooting

At approximately 2:50 p.m., on Monday, May 23, 2022, we received reports of gun shots in the 1000 block of 17 Avenue S.W. It is believed one man was struck and suffered a gun shot wound to his arm. The victim was taken to Foothills Medical Centre in life-threating condition and has since been upgraded to stable condition.

Following the incident, witnesses reported seeing a vehicle fleeing the scene.   

We continue to investigate this incident and collect CCTV footage from surrounding businesses. We are asking anyone who may have been travelling along 17 Avenue S.W., between 9 and 11 Street, or through adjoining roads, anytime between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. today who may have dashcam footage, to contact police.

At this time, we are in the early stages of both investigations and unable to confirm if these incidents are related.

Anyone who might have witnessed these shootings or who may have information is asked to contact the police non-emergency number at 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:

It seems reasonable now (or at some point in the near future) to expect a push toward gated communities, private security, private schools, and limited sanctuary status. If practicality prevented a simple life in a rural (and somewhat secluded) setting, and I lived in the US,  I'd certainly be of that mindset now.

Systemic issues, polarization and wildly different values speak more to an urban / rural divide than a political one IMO. I say that because the  "politics of the day" are simply no longer up to the task of fixing the ills political polarization have created... it's now inhibiting progress in a see-saw manner, it's largely value and life style dependant, it's getting worse and, will likely continue to do so IMO. 

It could easily be argued that sanctuary jurisdictions are anti-democratic by nature, and while I would agree with that assessment, I would also likely conclude that events have progressed to the point that (on balance) it no longer matters.

Clearly there were a lot of headlines I could have chosen but this one speaks to my point above. Other than avoidance in the form of "opting out," I can no longer conjure a bipartisan solution. "Unity of command" and "maintenance of the aim" are guiding principles of warfare and, metaphorically, life in general. Without them front and centre the other principles quickly rupture and leak.

At the point of leakage (metaphorically again) there remains only the weather, the terrain and the opposing forces... polarization is now at the point where simple consensus on the weather (existing conditions) is problematic to the point of being untenable.

The unholy trinity at work.

Even if there's legal precedent and/or good reason for this, it still smacks of the third element to me. Not sure how you could justify (or frame) this in a manner that I'd agree to assuming a case could even be made for it.  

At any rate, as a federal force the RCMP are unresponsive to the communities / jurisdictions they serve IMO... I stand opposed to using the military for policing duties for the exact same reason. The RCMP need to be escorted to the provincial border, set adrift and replaced with provincial and municipal forces that work for and represent the communities they serve, not political masters in Ottawa.

I'd rather have no police than the RCMP and given the response time (where I live), there might as well be none anyway. In my area, the only thing harder to find than a cop when you need one is a family doctor or a hospital bed.

Quote of the day:

“Doug Ford doesn’t seem to care and is fighting to keep handguns legal,” Del Duca said in a statement. “He has stated multiple times that he opposes a handgun ban, even as handgun-related crimes spike in his own backyard. These brazen attacks are escalating and endangering the lives of families across Ontario — and the fear needs to end.”

Instead of foolish statements, why not a side by side analysis of "handgun related crimes" perpetrated by gang members as compared to licensed IPSC Black Badge holders with registered firearms over the last 5 years.... that might be instructive for the voters who believe his nonsense. 

Here's Toronto's "current" most wanted list (from the police service website) that are shooting related. How many duck hunters from PEI do you suppose are in the group? And how many of these folks do you suppose are RPAL holders with registered handguns and permits to carry?
