The victims include a 28-year-old man killed during a drug dispute on Bentalou Street, a 37-year-old woman killed in a bullying incident on Gertrude street and a man and woman– both in their twenties, killed during a quadruple shooting on Bonaparte Ave.

Up to seven people were feared dead and 20 hurt in the 10pm attack – amid a second incident at nearby Borough Market which armed police are responding to.

The Metropolitan Police have confirmed a third incident in the Vauxhall area.
It now looks like two confirmed attacks...
The force initially said they were also responding to a reported third incident, in the Vauxhall area of London. But they said later that turned out to be an unrelated stabbing.

One woman said she saw three people with what appeared to be their throats cut on London Bridge amid reports that at least seven people have been stabbed, leaving bodies ‘strewn’ on the road in central London. One of the casualties is reportedly a police officer.
Six people now confirmed dead. Courtesy of armed response police officers, all three terrorists are off to nirvana to claim their 72 virgins. Dozens of other people have been injured. That's one bloodthirsty deity.

Religious freedom for some...

...or religious freedom for all...a little bit of Africa

This week, Arizona man Sean Corbett won an important victory for his proud, storied religion. The member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster successfully attained a state driver’s license while wearing a colander on his head.

Employees at Warren Food Market on 10 Mile Road near Ryan Road said they saw the man loading the beef in the cart, and the $800 worth of beef is in their freezer. Sources told Local 4 the meat hadn’t been inspected by the USDA and came from a facility that isn’t federally licensed.

I don’t think it is a big deal,” said Nazem Saad of Nazem Saad Halal Meat.
Yeah, I'm sure the floor of that van gets mopped out on a regular basis.

UPDATE: Rules are for infidels!!!
WARREN, Mich. (WXYZ) - When 7 Action News asked meat distributor Nazem Saad where he disposed of $800 worth of raw meat, he told us it was none of our business.

One witness who works near the Warren market says this is the second time in three weeks that he's seen raw meat dumped into shopping carts to take into the store.
Naz seems to have more than one problem here...
When asked if he often transports meats in vehicles that are not refrigerated, Saad became upset and said if the delivery is close, it should not be an issue.

MONTREAL - Parents at the private Montreal Christian academy attended by Karla Homolka’s children say school officials brushed off concerns about the schoolgirl killer interacting with their children. Homolka has been sending her own three children to the private, Seventh-day Adventist Greaves Academy since September.

The now 47-year-old convicted serial killer has been volunteering at the school – and reportedly supervised kindergarten children during a field trip in March.

I thought it was a hoax,” Andy Maraj, whose daughter attends Grade 3 with one of Homolka’s children, told the Montreal Gazette. Maraj said he started discussing Homolka’s presence with other parents in April, and on May 2, he received a letter that he would not be welcomed back in September.

Stéphanie Deligne, whose daughter attends Grade 4 at the school and is in a class with one of Homolka’s children, said she would have liked to have been informed about the situation. Deligne was told that she too would have to find another school in September. “The administration told me I am being too critical,” she said.
But this isn't really about people's feelings... it's supposed to be about the law...
Under Quebec law, volunteers at elementary schools are supposed to undergo criminal background checks before interacting with students.
So what is the deal here?

As reported by the Canadian Press, Mulcair feels Homolka has “paid her debt” and suggests it’s time to leave her alone.

LAST WORD: Adventists back down...
MONTREAL — A private Montreal elementary school is moving to quell public fears following media reports about Karla Homolka doing some volunteer work there. The school, which is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, says it won’t allow anyone with a criminal record to volunteer in any capacity on school grounds.

Tim Danson, a lawyer who represents the French and Mahaffy families, said Wednesday it was a “kick in the gut” for the families to hear reports of Homolka seemingly living a normal life with her husband and children.
Well, there's a concession... they won't allow serial killers to volunteer at their school anymore.
