"Let me fix that headline for you."more police hit squadsPerhaps the "professional" journalists at the Canadian Press meant to use the word "INTERAC"... as in "making a withdrawal."

Note that there is no mention of the "alleged" robber using a gun in this "reported" robbery.

No wonder people lose their shit when they read about these things. This article makes it sound as though the police, upon hearing of a possible crime, raced over to the nearest welfare hellhole and shot a random bystander in this "may, or may not have happened" crime.

Could there possibly be any other explanation?armed robber shot dead in scarberiaOh, look...
CP24 has learned that a bystander at Warden station called 911 to report that a man ARMED WITH A GUN was robbing a TTC collector.
Was there a gun? Sure sounds like police had reason to think so.

UPDATE: If Justin had a son...
A neighbour of 33-year-old Daniel Clause, shot and killed by police after he allegedly robbed a Scarborough TTC station called the man “a loaded gun."

“I believe his addiction took hold,” he said of the robbery attempt, adding that Clause had been acting erratically lately. “He’d smash his apartment up, HE DID STUPID THINGS.”
If only Clause had been able to wait for Justin to legalise drugs. On the other hand, his epitaph is already written.

Those damn Mennonites...

Police said the victim of the brazen, 3:30 p.m. shooting -- also a young man -- is not being much help to investigators and refusing to provide much detail. In fact, he cursed at police in the back of the ambulance when they grilled him for information.

Police arrested two men, allegedly affiliated with the Crips street gang, at the scene on Friday afternoon. The men, believed to be in their 20s, were held for several hours, questioned and released without charge. Police said they are known to Guns and Gangs investigators.
The victim, who is expected to make a full recovery, is known to police.

It was the city's record-breaking 46th shooting of the year -- double the number from 2011 and 16 more than last year.
Sleep tight Ottawa.

Adel and Abdulaziz are half-brothers of Nawaf Al-Enzi, who is awaiting a second trial for what’s alleged to be the gangland execution of Ledbury-Banff Crips member and drug dealer Mohamad Zalal.

Dear Sir...

Here at Acme Insurance and Loan we pride ourselves on our service and congeniality. Therefore, it is with no small regret that we inform you that we will no longer be able to conduct business with the city of Berkeley.

Our policies with your sister city of Ferguson have forced Acme Insurance into Chapter 11. It saddens us to have to close down after 121 years in business, but as you know, one cannot predict the future.

In closing, I would only point out that our latest business venture, Acme Body Armour Inc., has not been adversely affected by recent events.

UPDATE: The Berkeley blowback

Remember... every single Police Officer is a despicable murderer and every Black man is an innocent bystander.

No exceptions.

“Do you have to treat EVERY SITUATION with lethal force? It’s not a racial issue, or black or white. It’s wrong or right,” said 36-year-old Orlando Brown, one of the protesters.
Well, Orlando... how about when someone points a loaded pistol at a cop? Is the officer allowed to shoot then?
Police released surveillance video from the parking lot outside the store. The nearly two-minute clip shows two young men leaving the store as a patrol car rolls up, and the officer gets out and speaks with them. About 90 seconds later, the video appears to show one of the men raising his arm, though what he is holding is difficult to see because they were several feet from the camera. Belmar said it was a 9mm handgun — loaded with one round in the chamber and five more in the magazine.
One other consideration might be the person's previous behavior. Was Antonio Martin an innocent bystander who made a single bad decision?
Martin had a criminal record that included three assault charges and others for armed robbery, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.
That's a pretty impressive C.V. for an 18-year-old.

Remember, though... none of that matters. Not to the "Community" or the mainstream media.


So, Premier Wynne...

..., you'll pay for the coverup, but not the actual crime... caught in the actI'm not sure that I follow the logic here...

Premier Kathleen Wynne's press secretary says in a statement that the Ontario Liberal Party executive council voted Monday to cover the payment so no tax dollars go toward work currently under police investigation.
I have a question, Premier. When you say "no tax dollars go toward work currently under police investigation"... does that include the hundreds of millions of dollars the Liberal party said they were shelling out as compensation for the gas plants THAT DIDN'T GET BUILT?"

I'm guessing, if so, you would have led with that. Sigh.

So, in actuality, this $10,000 is just one loogie in an ocean of larcenous Liberal spit.

Forgive my impertinence, but, as Premier of Ontario... you do get that ALL police work is funded with taxpayer dollars. Also, that any and all monies funneled to Liberal operatives (or their family members) for work that triggers subsequent criminal investigation is a horse of an entirely different colour?

So, just to be clear, what you're coughing up here, is under-the-table funds paid to the spouse of Dalton McGuinty's deputy chief of staff for a little nudge-nudge wink-wink say-no-more services, specifically deletion of emails and like documentation in an alleged criminal conspiracy. I mean, if it were simply required maintenance, that could simply have been performed by the extremely well-paid Queens Park IT department, right?

So, cards on the table, these same monies, despite your press secretary's vague and misleading statement, have not a smidge to do with monies compensating the police... past, present or future.

And now that the net is closing... you'll pay them back. Bravo Madam Premier.

The short answer is...

...people die...don't need a weathermanOh, right... the question is... "What happens when you let sympathy cloud what should be the straightforward balancing of an equation?

The Eaton Centre shooter was released on bail... TWICE... before he went on to commit multiple murders and maimings. The legal system isn't just broken... it has been burned to the ground. Remember, people died here... and innocent bystanders were seriously injured.

So when will we learn our lesson?

It's coming to a head, I think, as evidenced by reaction in the comments to the statement, "Jail is a hard place, getting harder all the time."

And good gawd, let's not get started on the horrors of powdered milk. Or, maybe... let's do.

Ballbounces writes... "If drinking powdered milk is a cruelty, then I had a cruel upbringing. Who do I sue?"

To which Big Red replies... "I am with you. We need to start a class action suit. When I was a kid, times were so bad we used to eat our powdered milk dry, with a spoon. Couldn't afford the water to mix it up."

Earl Smith then weighs in... "A spoon. A SPOON??? Utter luxury. We dreamed and prayed for a spoon in our family, we were so poor."

I'm stunned that anyone could regard "powdered milk" for murderers as any sort of an issue. Didn't we just used to hang these guys?

I don't know if dead is a hard place, except maybe for all the folks you leave behind. I do know that it's more difficult to deal with than powdered milk.

It said the man would also be "stoned to death."

According to his grandmother, however, he was not dangerous. “He wasn’t that kind of boy,” Sylvie Labelle told TVA. “When he converted, he found inner peace. He wanted to take care of his mother and be the man of the house.”
Apart from the maps and notes, there was just one small fly in the Islamic ointment.

I guess they think...

...it's what Trayvon would've wanted...copkillers unite

It’s not the only apparent link between the “dead cops” chant and the Trayvon Martin Organizing Committee. At the beginning of the video and before the call to kill police, you can hear what sounds like, “arms up, shoot back!” That slogan appears on TMOC’s Twitter account.

The bedrock of TMOC’s politics, judged by their social-media output, is hatred for police and endorsement of violence against them. The group seems to blend “black bloc” anarchist street violence with social-media campaigns.

It would be interesting to find out more about the radicals whose slogan is “shoot back.” What we know now is that, out of the people arrested on the bridge, one is a Harvard-educated poet and another was making more than $100,000 a year working for one of the most the most powerful unions in New York City.
Will you see a story linking the Trayvon Martin supporters with violence in Ferguson or the murder of police officers in New York?

DEAR PROFESSIONAL JOURNALISTS:

This is why we don't take you seriously...

just plain lazy

JTF2 "operators," as they prefer to be called, use a Macmillan TAC-50 rifle nicknamed "Big Mac." It's the longest-range weapon available to snipers, with a range of 2.3 km. The Big Mac has been standard issue for elite Canadian snipers since 2000.

QMI was unable to confirm if Canada provided TAC-50s to Iraqi and Kurdish snipers.
Confirm, you disingenuous hacks? I'm unable to confirm that Tom Mulcair is not having hot chimp sex with Olivia Chow on the steps of Parliament as we speak... but you don't see me passing it off as journalism. Your claiming to know about the "operator's" preferences strikes me as totally made-up as well. You guys are like, what... besties? You jock up with JTF-2 on the weekend? I don't think so.

Speaking of facts, the photo in your article is not a MacMillan TAC 50. That photo is of a rifle (manufactured by Colt Industries in Kitchener, Ontario) descended from the venerable M16... and is the battle rifle issued to all regular Canadian troops. It's not even made in the same country (Phoenix, Arizona) as the McMillan.

Copying & pasting a bunch of gun porn (along with a picture of a totally different rifle) is not journalism. It's like using a picture of a jumbo jet in a story about Amelia Earhart. Or pretending that Gamil Gharbi is just another French-Canadian dude named Marc.

What happened to the thesis here... that Canada has boots on the ground fighting ISIS? Nah, you just gloss over that and sprinkle the narrative with some gun stats you don't even understand yourself.

You don't care enough about the narrative to even source the correct photographs...just plain lazyIs the rest of the story just bullshit as well?

No wonder the dead tree media is defunct.

It has happened before. It will happen again...

In the last 200 years, only the 1859 and 1921 solar superstorms are believed by experts to have exceeded the 4,000 nanoTesla/minute level over the U.S. If one of these storms were to occur today, many experts believe they would likely damage key elements of the power grid and could cause very long-term power outages over much of the United States.
Bear in mind that in 1859 and even 1921 there was much less infrastructure to be damaged. No integrated circuits, no computer chips, hardly any transformers.

Try an experiment. Go downstairs to your home's breaker panel. Shut off the main power. Do not use your cellphone or your laptop. Do not use your car. You are also not allowed to turn on water taps.

We're all gonna die... we're all gonna die

...just not from legally owned firearms...

When the federal Conservative government abolished the long-gun registry back in 2012, gun-control advocates predicted no end to the criminal chaos that would result.

If duck hunters, farmers and collectors were no longer required to register their rifles and shotguns, women would not be safe in their homes. They would be slaughtered by their murderous male partners.

Gun-control activists also forecast rampant crime in Canadian streets. And, of course, the murder rate would soar.

However the 2013 homicide figures were released by Statistics Canada on Monday. In the first full year without the registry, the murder rate in Canada went down significantly – 8%.

More specifically, “the rate of firearm-related homicide decreased 25%.”
So, the next time you hear Thomas Mulcair and the NDP want to cough up another 2 billion dollars to revive the long gun registry (remember, handguns have had their own registry for 85 years now and long gun owners already jump through expensive and extensive hoops to buy firearms of any stripe), just crunch the numbers and ask yourself if you actually have some extra cash to donate to the federal deficit.

To paraphrase Jeff Cooper... a complicated and expensive solution to a problem that doesn't even exist.

Burying the lede?

How far will your average politically correct "professional journalist" go... not to mention the "M" word?

Pretty far, it seems... although there's apparently some compelling reason to bring real-estate agents into the blood-soaked, medieval mix.what's muslim got to do with it

The Crown prosecutor told court that although media reports at the time described the attacks as a family “honour crime”, nothing in the case file supports that theory.
Nothing you say? Seriously?

Okay, let's get it out there... this guy is, as Licia Corbella would say, "not one of us."

What's that you say... too harsh?

I'm afraid I'll have to disagree. Vehemently. Cutting bits off a family pet, never mind your daughter... puts you squarely on the sociopathological end of the parental discipline continuum. (Hmmm... cutting bits off women... that actually sounds kind of familiar, but for now let's get back to the matter at hand).
His wife and daughter had just returned from his daughter’s new apartment. The father had never agreed that his eldest daughter, 20, could move out. And when she said her father no longer controlled her life, he said that in fact he did and slapped her across the face.
You listen to folks like Justin Trudeau, Ottawa is Progressia Central. I get that modern parents may have moved past traditional western sanctions like spanking and grounding... but this guy seems to have picked up his parenting chops (pun intended) from, and I'm just guessing here, the 11th century.
He then grabbed a butcher knife from the kitchen and slashed his daughter in the shoulder. When she tried to grab it to stop the attack, her right pinky finger was severed and her ring finger partially severed.
Our "professional" scribe apparently can't quite bring himself to label this attempted murder... and instead shifts over to the passive tense.
His wife suffered severe defensive wounds to... to her skull.
Translation... this, uh... real-estate agent tried to stab his wife in the brain.

My favourite part in this rainbows and unicorn farts narrative is when the our intrepid reporter attempts to portray Samaurai Dad as the victim.
The father, who cries himself to sleep most nights at the Innes Road jail, pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of aggravated assault in a plea bargain with the Crown that spared him prosecution on the more severe charges of attempted murder.
If I had anything to say about this guy's current living arrangements, I'd see him betrothed to the rabid maddog biker enforcer with the most cigarettes.

Remember, this all started with this allegedly typical Ottawa Dad seeing an online photograph of his 20 year-old daughter (not, as you might have imagined from his response, cavorting with meth-crazed S&M enthusiasts) posing with the university Glee club.

Guns that protect politicians... GOOD.

Guns that protect ordinary people... BAD.

Previously, only some House of Commons guards carried guns. NOW ALL WILL, though it is unclear when the training will be complete and the new policy fully in place.


Conscience and fortitude

What happens to "The Community" when there are no more Church ladies?

**********

DEAR "PROFESSIONAL" JOURNALISTS:

Stop embarrassing yourselves.

What happened in Ferguson was not a "protest." A protest is a lawful assembly of citizens who wish to raise public awareness. Looting and burning, shooting at First Responders and carjacking and robbing (two news crews at last count, btw) are acts of criminal mayhem.

Let's lose the "gentle giant" malarkey. Michael Brown (at 6'5" and 300lbs) was in the 99th percentile for size and strength. He was used to getting his way. Fifteen minutes before he was stopped by Officer Wilson, he had initiated a strongarm robbery and assaulted a convenience store owner. Had he lived, he would have faced numerous felony charges including assaulting a law officer. Ironically, his last words... "You're too pussy to shoot me," as he struggled to reach Officer Wilson's firearm have enshrined his arrogance and misplaced sense of superiority for all time.

Stick to reliable facts. How about quoting the people who gave sworn testimony to the grand jury... accounts that, surprise, surprise, back up Officer Wilson's narrative. Quoting Michael Brown's "homies"... (people who won't give testimony under oath) is ridiculous and inflammatory. Hyperbolic accounts of homicidal cops manufactured on the spot and stories that defy the physical evidence do not deserve to see the light of day.

Do not automatically beatify the families. Michael Brown's mother gave birth before she got out of primary school. What sort of upbringing do you imagine he actually had. Louis Head, Michael's stepfather, a twice convicted felon and gangbanger was seen hysterically screaming for the gathered masses to "Burn this bitch (the city of Ferguson) down."

If Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown are indeed the poster boys for racial injustice in America, there is very little hope for any sort of reconciliation.

This is why we don't respect the MSM. This is why newpapers and television news are being superceded by internet media. Learn or die.

Wilson also describes the moment he says he felt overpowered by 6 foot 5, Brown, who weighed upwards of 300 pounds.

‘When I grabbed him, the only way I can describe it is I felt like a five-year-old holding Hulk Hogan.’
And then "gentle giant" Michael Brown started wrestling Officer Wilson for his gun.

10:50 EST - Looting appears to have gotten out-of-control on the ground in Ferguson. Breitbart News reporter Christian Hartsock observed several Ferguson-based stores, as well as a bank, being looted by large crowds. Additionally, he saw a Wallgreens being set on fire.

This was right after Brown had struggled to get hold of Officer Wilson's gun...
During his September 16 grand jury testimony, Wilson recounted how he tussled with Brown when the teenager grabbed for his gun while lunging into the squad car. As they fought over the weapon, Wilson testified, the teenager taunted him, yelling, “You’re too much of a pussy to shoot me.”

Buying an election

Remember Dalton McGuinty's tough stand on teachers? Turns out, surprise, surprise, it was a very temporary political ploy to get his successor past the post. Let's pick up the story from there...

In February 2013, Wynne took over, repealed the bill, and re-opened negotiations with the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation. The two sides eventually achieved peace, for an undisclosed price.

We now know that price.

According to Lysyk, who was commissioned following a complaint from the Progressive Conservatives, it cost $355-million for changes to maternity leave, sick days, retirement benefits and professional development, as well as $113-million to eliminate wage differences between unions.

In total, the price tag was nearly a half-billion dollars; indeed, it’s enough to make an Education Minister dash down a hallway.
They look you right in the face and they lie.

Remember... you get the kind of government you deserve.

UPDATE: KURDS ARE MAKING HEADWAY
Kurdish fighters captured six buildings from Islamic State militants besieging the Syrian town of Kobani on Tuesday and seized a large haul of their weapons and ammunition, a group monitoring the war said.

Kurdish forces appear to have made other gains in recent days of fighting. Last week they blocked a road Islamic State was using to resupply its forces, the first major gain against the jihadists after weeks of violence.

Attorney General Eric Holder expressed concerns about Gov. Jay Nixon’s decision this week to declare a state of emergency at a news conference and activate the National Guard.

Meanwhile Holder's underlings have a slightly different take on the situation...
Senior Justice officials also told U.S. attorneys around the country on Tuesday to be in close touch with local police to prepare for any possible violence in their cities, should the grand jury decision not result in an indictment of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

As initially reported by CBS News, the men were suspected of acquiring explosives for pipe bombs that they planned to set off during protests in Ferguson, according to the official, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly discuss the case.

The official said the two men are the same pair named in a newly unsealed federal indictment returned on Nov. 19 charging Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis with purchasing two pistols from a firearms dealer under false pretenses.

The CBC, like CNN, owes it to Canadians to fully explain how such a disgraceful and myopic headline got incorporated in their news coverage and disseminated wide and far.

Just like CNN did, CBC should apologize for its journalistic shortcomings and must explain in detail specific actions it will take to ensure that an incident like this will never happen again.

Unhang 'Em High?

Two female NDP MPs who allege improper conduct by a duo of male Liberal MPs will not be formally laying a complaint to launch an investigation, says a senior New Democrat.

The decision could leave Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau with a political dilemma: Without an investigation, does he allow his two MPs back into caucus after suspending their membership because of the allegations?
Hey Justin... just ask yourself, "What would the PRC Politburo do?"

Oh, that's right... you already did.
OTTAWA - The House of Commons committee that was to create a sexual harassment policy to govern MPs has decided it doesn't have the mandate for it.

Following question period, a clearly agitated Trudeau told reporters that he was unable to take any action before hearing back from Scheer.

That leaves little chance of an investigation, and the fates of Andrews and Pacetti still unclear.
Unclear... apart from Justin having pronounced judgement and tossed them out of caucus, that is.

Gun stores near the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson have seen sales zoom as the area awaits a grand jury decision on whether to indict a police officer for shooting unarmed teenager Michael Brown.

John Stephenson of Metro Shooting Supplies in nearby Bridgeton said he normally sells 10 to 15 guns a day. But for the last three weeks, he said he has been selling between 30 and 50 guns daily, a nearly 300 percent increase.

The biggest sellers have been "home defense shotguns" and "high capacity semi-automatic pistols," particularly the Smith & Wesson M&P9, Stephenson said. He's sold about 250 of the pistols in the last few weeks.

"As fast as we get them in, we sell them," he said.
Looks like some Ferguson homeowners are gonna "take back the night."

Meanwhile, back at Al Capone's Vault

No matter that there are no actual reported missing boys nor a single scrap of physical evidence that points to a crime or a location.

Hells bells, it's got CBC written all over it... sexual abuse, incest, recovered memories of multiple murders and an old racist white guy. Hey, they've even got a sacred fire.

Not too shabby for an outfit that can't seem to ever offer up a description of a shooter unless they're wearing a badge.

A dozen people gathered at the farm for a feast and ceremony — offering peace to the spirits of the boys and thanks to Breckenridge for carrying their story.
Yup... no physical remains, but apparently the force is with them.
“We saw a hawk come over the gathering and to us, we take that as affirmation that spiritual work we were doing was being acknowledged,” said Becky Big Canoe, a member of the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation and one of the organizers of the event.

An investigation by CBC, using state-of-the-art equipment, showed there may in fact be three bodies buried beneath the foundation of the barn, exactly where Breckenridge remembered them to be.
Whoa, it's nothing but state of the art gadgets at CSI Pefferlaw. At least we know what the CBC is doing with the billion plus taxpayer dollars they suck out of our pockets every year.

Oh... wait...
Police have found nothing after digging up a barn northeast of Toronto to determine whether three boys were murdered and buried there decades ago.
Oh... no bodies you say? That's okay... CBC did their in-depth investigation, that's what counts.

“There was an altercation with two or three suspects and two black males produced firearms,” said Det.-Sgt. Gary Giroux.

The girl’s doctors said she has a 90-95 per cent chance of survival on chemotherapy, but that they didn’t know of anyone who had survived Acute Lyphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) without the treatment.
Whaddayamean... political pawn?
The decision was met with applause from many in the courtroom, including members of the girl’s family.

“It is dismissed. It is dismissed … aboriginal rights are upheld,” said a family friend, in tears, as she called the girl’s mother from inside the courtroom.
Yeah... "aboriginal rights"... that'll really perk up the eulogy.

“We do have a disproportionate number of aboriginal children in the care of the state and many of them are in non-aboriginal homes,” said Milne. “Upholding the aboriginal rights in this kind of a context really also will speak to those kinds of cases too.”
The first part of that statement is, in fact, quite accurate.
"Almost half of all children living in foster care in 2011 were Aboriginal."
How this decision will speak to those cases completely eludes me. Again... let's look at the numbers...
"The rate of deaths from injuries is 3 to 4 times higher for Aboriginal children than for other children in Canada."

Here are three crucial changes that the president clearly didn’t want you to know about:

1. HUGE DEFICITS AND NEW TAXES. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the latest projections for the net cost of ObamaCare over the next ten years are just over $1.4 trillion. Whereas President Obama promised in 2009 that it would cost less than $1 trillion over ten years. In order to partially pay for this, ObamaCare has added more than 20 new taxes totaling over $500 billion.

2. BUREAUCRACY. Speaking of Orwellian politics, ObamaCare includes 159 new boards and agencies to restrict and govern your health care choices.

3. STILL MORE BUREAUCRACY. Dysfunctional state exchanges with high deductible policies, narrow doctor networks, including federally-run exchanges in 36 states which may not be allowable under the law (SCOTUS currently considering this case).

What makes the Liberals think they can shove this thing down taxpayers deep throats?

This time, Wynne’s government says it will have 4,000 hand-picked parents chosen by school principals participate in an online survey on the sex education curriculum before it is introduced.

Most are expected to be the chairs of school councils. But their purpose, other than providing a rubber stamp of approval, seems unclear.

That because while selected parents will be asked their views about issues related to the new sex education curriculum, Education Minister Liz Sandals has already said that’s unlikely to lead to any changes.

The culprit is not some errant racist landlord trying to throw one tenant out of a building. It’s the Kahnawake Mohawk council, which has a law that bans all “mixed race” couples from living anywhere in its Montreal-area territory.

“Will not a difficulty arise, as to who these people are?
In the Mohawk village here, a large proportion are the immediate (perhaps the second generation) descendants of Germans; there is also a family of immediate descendants of Africans: Are they to be considered as Indians? There are also some descendants of Americans, whose ancestors were Europeans. Will they come within the intention of the Order? In fact there are but few real Indians amongst them.”
Well, technically they are all descendants of Americans, forced out of the Mohawk Valley in New York by non-aboriginal countrymen and relocated by the British to reservations north of the 49th parallel.

There were all kinds of non-aboriginal folk already settled in Upper and Lower Canada before the reservations were established.

But now it is clear that much of the Ford message resonated well with hundreds of thousands of perfectly respectable voters. They appreciated his responsiveness (the mayor always answered every phone message personally), avoidance of extravagance (even the Star conceded that he cut $638-million over four years from the City’s expenses), and a jovial, if sometimes laddish demeanor.
