Shooting Shocka

I can't wait for CBC's "The National" to tell us all about Mr Husbands lengthy criminal recor, er... ongoing history of oppression by "The Man"... oppressionMeanwhile, a 13 year-old boy lies in critical condition in an induced coma after being shot in the head.

Seems like incarceration (Mr Husbands is apparently coming off a five year bit... nearly half of his total length of residency in Canada) didn't make that much of an impression on ol' Chris.

It's past time to bring back the death penalty.

...says city councillor Adam Vaughan...

Adam does the front crawl...

"You can’t point to a date on a calendar or an event on a rap sheet and say that’s what caused this. It is part of an intensifying rivalry that defies geographic description in the same way it defies racial description."
Then, Mr Vaughan, immediately & somewhat perplexingly... switches to a furious backstroke & proceeds to point to just that...
"The Eaton Centre shooting followed about three months of escalating violence involving youths from Alexandra Park and Regent Park, the city’s largest public-housing complex, located east of downtown."
Yup... no geographic OR racial elements there, huh? C'mon folks... move along now.

But if you think that jibber-jabber was impressive... check out...
Mr. Vaughan said it’s not clear how, or if, the two incidents are related. “For a while it looked like the two were directly connected, but they are part of the same issue we’ve been managing, or trying to manage, without any resources,” he said. “But it’s unclear now how intricately the two are related.”
Just what sort of resources... outside of a hulking SWAT team... is Mr Vaughan asking for?
