ON JAN. 15, an innocent young teenager from Coquitlam died after being hit be a stray bullet, shot by a cold-hearted, callous and uncaring thug.
Vancouver Police Chief Adam Palmer, in an interview with the Sun, stated:
“My heart goes out to the family of the 15-year-old boy. They were having a normal Saturday night evening out with family and now they are grieving for their son,” Palmer said. “My message to the family is this: we will not ever be able to fully comprehend your grief, but the Vancouver Police Department will do whatever it takes to seek justice for your son.”
Following the outrageous and senseless death of this young teen, someone whom I will choose to call insensitive (at least by my standards), decided to post this comment on Twitter:
To this, I replied:
BULLSHIT. There’s one hell of a difference between legal guns,
and assholes that don’t give a shit whether someone innocent
is injured or killed. Let’s have a return of the death sentence
return, OR let’s make a life sentence what it’s called?
I know the do-gooders will never allow the return of the death sentence, however, maybe it should be considered in cases like this … or when a police officer is shot and killed in the line of duty … or when an expectant mother is murdered.
At the very least, shouldn’t a Life Sentence be exactly what it is called? You are sentenced to remain in prison for the rest of of your life. Period!
In the past couple of years, from Vancouver, to Surrey, to Abbotsford … and now more and more in the interior of B.C., there have been gang wars.
Gang wars that are being settled with guns.
By creeps and jerks who don’t care in the least who may be hit by stray bullets.
Their guns are purchased for one reason, and one reason only — GREED!
These guns, despite what those wanting a clamp-down of guns say, have NOT been purchased legally; nor are they, or have they ever been, registered.
Always Vote (@always_Vote), your comment on Twitter the other day shows the complete lack of knowledge that you have when it comes to guns. It likely also is indicative of those with thoughts like our Sunny Ways Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, who never met a gun he didn’t think should be registered.
Rather than stirring up the pot again with gun control talk, can we instead actually consider a course of action that just might at least cut down on the violence?
MAKE A LIFE SENTENCE, A LIFE SENTENCE!
