CKNW is reporting that "Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is responding to what he calls acts of hatred and racism directed at specific Canadians, in the aftermath of terrorist attacks in Paris. In a statement, the Prime Minister says diversity is Canada’s strength and that vicious and senseless acts of intolerance have no place in our country, and run contrary to Canadian values.” I have to agree. Hamilton's response is what Canada is all about. It's what the French Revolution was all about. As Martin Luther King once said "I've seen too much hate to want to hate, myself, and every time I see it I say to myself hate is too great a burden to bear." Indeed it is.
A blog reader recently asked me how I was enjoying semi retirement. I had to smile. If only. They were obviously referring to the blog. I have stopped blogging about the gang war but I'm still here. I have changed directions. Everyone knows the Hells Angels are a criminal organization that sells drugs. The recent raid in Quebec everyone is talking about confirms that.
Mom Boucher and his daughter have been charged with conspiracy to commit murder along with his old drug dealing pal Greg Woolley. I'm not going to get into the whole soap opera of who betrayed who this time. The Montreal Gazette did a great overview of that. It's pretty obvious that Mom Boucher is not out in bad standing. That was a false rumor sent out to get early parole. Boucher got his patch after serving time in prison for armed rape and no one cares. He was involved in the Death Riders betrayal along with Biff Hammel and no one cares.
He's still involved with Greg Woolley and the current drug related violence in Montreal and no one cares. Except for the Quebec police of course. Another blog reader pointed out that BC is way more corrupt then Quebec is. The police in Quebec are aggressively trying to deal with the problem. Not in BC. In BC we have yet another Pat Fogherty running interference for the Hells Angels in the media. Like I said before, Every time a police task force found organized crime, a government body disbanded that police task force.
In Quebec, they have an anti corruption task force investigating organized crime in politics. Not in BC. Ontario has anti SLAP legislation. Not in BC. BC is a cesspool of corruption and no one cares. The courts in BC are a joke. Ron Skolrood is a man like unto Peter Leask. He's taking us in the wrong direction. That's all there is to it. I'm still posting new links on the old web site at www.gangstersout.com but there's nothing else really for me to say. Except for the fact that there was another shooting in Surrey Saturday morning. Over all things have calmed down recently.
Canada Post is still lyng to the media. Nothing has changed there either. CBC is reporting that "After making a profit in the second quarter of the year, Canada Post has reported a loss of $13 million in the third quarter." Despite the fact that "In the third quarter, parcel volumes rose 10.4 per cent as revenue from parcels rose by $43 million to $380 million. The fourth quarter, with the crucial holiday season, is likely to be the most profitable period for parcel delivery."
Canada Post is manipulating the numbers again trying to make Justin Trudeau look bad for keeping his campaign promise to scrap Canada Post's insistence on doing away with door to door delivery for everyone. Time for a new CEO. They recently made a huge expenditure on new sorting machines that sort the route to line of travel. This expense will be off set by the fact that the time Letter Carriers spend inside sorting the mail will be drastically reduced and almost all of their time will be spend outside delivering mail. This makes for much longer routes and is eliminating a huge number of positions which will save money and increase profit.
There is no need to take away door to door delivery from everyone. Canada Post is a cash cow that consistently makes a profit and consistently pays dividends to the government. If they privatize Canada Post, they will have to raise taxes to off set the loss in tax revenue.

The entrapment of John Nuttall and Amanda Korody is in the news again. Today the Vancouver Province is reporting that "Judge rules there is evidence the RCMP acted illegally in undercover probe of Surrey couple convicted in B.C. legislature bomb plot." John and Amanda's lawyer has rightfully filed a petition with the court claiming entrapment because that is exactly what it was. The judge has now ordered that the legal advice given to the police be disclosed to the defense.
Sadly the judge claimed that “A finding of illegal acts, standing alone, may not be sufficient to establish an abuse of process warranting a stay of proceedings,” which isn't entirely true. Was this entrapment? Yes or no. That's really all that's on the table. The judge also stated “However, evidence that the police ignored legal advice or acted contrary to legal advice and, conversely, evidence that the police acted in good faith based on legal advice is relevant to the seriousness of their misconduct, which in turn is relevant to whether a stay of proceedings should be ordered. Illegal acts by the RCMP are also relevant to the entrapment claim.”
She claims illegal acts by the RCMP are also relevant to the entrapment claim. I can accept that. However, even if they got legal advice from a law firm that told them entrapment wasn't entrapment and acted in good faith not knowing they were breaking the law, that does not change the fact that the case has to be thrown out because entrapment did exist even if the police didn't realize what they were doing was illegal.
What is highly relevant is if the police ignored legal advice warning them that they were in fact guilty of entrapment. If they ignored that advice and proceeded unilateral, their defense is sunk and they knowingly committed entrapment instead of unknowingly. Which comes as no surprise given the fact that one of the under cover officers said "We have to call this thing off. These two couldn't plan a bag lunch let a lone a terrorist attack."
That is the point. These two did not have the means or the motive to commit this crime. The lack of means is obvious. Two Surrey drug addicts without a penny to their name. The Vancouver Province article said the RCMP had provided the accused with groceries, cigarettes, bus passes, cellphones, prepaid phone cards, a portable hard drive, clothing and cash. How much cash is not disclosed but here we are told the RCMP admitted to giving them money.
Which explains why they were so scared when they said "We've spent a lot of money on you two. Mr Big isn't going to be happy about this. You need to come up with a plan now!" They came up with a couple ideas like hitting a military target. The police agent told them they want them to plan an attack on Canada Day at the Parliament buildings instead. The police told them to do it and threatened them if they didn't.
They were a couple of broke Surrey drug addicts who were befriended by some police agents who gave them food and money. They drove them around shopping for bomb parts which the police paid for because the couple didn't have the money to buy them or a car to pick them up in. The police had to drive them to Victoria because they didn't have the money to pay the fare to take the ferry over to Vancouver Island.
They were incapable of making a pressure cooker bomb. I'm not and I'm not a drug addict. When their attempt to make a bomb failed the RCMP gave them C4 to put in the bomb to make it explode. There is no chance in Hell a Surrey drug addict is going to be able to come up with any C4 unless the police give it to them. They did not have the means to commit this crime without police assistance. That is entrapment.
The RCMP took them to a hotel to get away from their elderly grandmother who was living in the basement suit with them because it's pretty hard to convince the world an elderly Caucasian Christan grandmother is a crazed terrorist. The first time they took them to a hotel to come up with a plan all they did was play video games. The police were furious. The second time the told them MR Big is going to be really mad and had to keep reminding them to stay on task and not get distracted when they were making an unsuccessful attempt to make a pressure cooker bomb for some Mr Big they were afraid was going to kill them if they didn't do exactly as they were told. The police showed them suitcases full of money and gave them C4. Nobody can get C4. When the police agents said they could actually get C4 they were scared to death.
I have a lot more to say about this case but I will sum it up by simply saying there has never been a more clear example of entrapment in the history of the earth. Bill Tieleman talked about a similar case in the US where FBI agents paid a former drug addict thousands of dollars and a new car to plant bombs in New York against Jewish targets. If you pay a drug addict an absurd amount of money to perform a terrorist act and give them the weapons to perform that act, you haven't saved the world from a terrorist, you just created one. We need to stop spending an absurd amount of tax dollars paying drug addicts to perform terrorist acts. The entrapment needs to stop.

In Canada November 11th is Remembrance Day. The day we set aside to remember those who have fought and those who have died in war on our behalf. Canada was deeply involved in the First and Second world war as well as the Korean war. Canada has also been involved in generations of Peace Keeping as well as taking a combat role in Afghanistan. We lost many good soldiers in Afghanistan. Bill Turner was one of them. Trevor Greene survived an axe attack to the back of his head there. He and Bill proved to be the epitome of what a Canadian soldier exemplifies.
In the movie Gladiator, the hero and the villain both lied in the dust dead. The emperor's daughter said of the hero "He was a soldier of Rome. Honour him." Then the pallbearers came and carried the body to a respectful burial. On Remembrance Day 2011 I made a blog post talking about how drastically times have changed and how we have come from Flanders Fields in France to Opium Fields in Afghanistan. Times have certainly changed so they have.
Years ago I dated a German girl and I was a bit worried about what my father was going to say. He served in the Second world war and both his parents served in the First World War. All our ancestors served. When I nervously told him I was dating a German girl without hesitation he looked at me and said "the war is over isn't it?" Shocked and relieved I said yes it is.
The Holocaust was a horrible thing. Opposing that was the right thing to do regardless of the cost. Yet there is one thing we need to remember from that horrific event. We need to remember how Hitler conned the German people. It is what was portrayed in the Star wars saga and was how the evil empire conned and overthrew the free republic. Hitler bombed his own parliament building and blamed it on terrorists to get special powers of Chancellor. Then he bombed a German radio station and blamed it on Poland to justify the invasion of Poland. The rest is history. We need to remember that. We need to remember how Hitler conned the German people so we don't get fooled ourselves by the same con since history repeats itself until we learn from it.
CSIS provided the explosives for the Air India bombing. They still need to be charged for that mass murder. CSIS was caught red handed aiding ISIS in Syria. Stephen Harper's own personal body guard. That still needs to be dealt with. Civil Liberty still needs to be protected. Lest we forget.
France Update: In Flanders's Fields
Remember what Nicolas Sarkozy did to Moammar Gadhafi. He collected campaign contributions from him while he tried to convince the world we should trust Gadafi with nuclear power and weapons because he wanted to sell Gadafi a French reactor. Then when Gadafi decided to buy a reactor from Argentina instead of France, he conned Canada into helping him invade and assassinate Gadafi for that crime. All the bad things Sarkozy claimed Gadafi had done didn't matter when Sarkozy was trying to sell Gadafi a nuclear reactor. They all of a sudden mattered when Gadifi decided not to buy a reactor from Sarkozy. We were conned.
Remember what French Intelligence did for Sarkozy in Pakistan. Sarkozy was accused of getting political kickbacks from an arms deal with Pakistan. When the deal was cancelled and his kickbacks were cut off he was accused of helping organize a terrorist bombing in Pakistan that killed French engineers. That is what the Karachi affair was really about.
Why would terrorists declare war on France now for any reason other than to help Sarkozy get re elected? This is the return of the October Surprise. What kind of person would kill their own people just to get elected? Sarkozy did. So did Adolf Hitler. Lest we forget.
Today we fight a new war in Flander's Fields. Only this war doesn't involve an external enemy. This war involves an enemy from within. Buyer Beware: Operation Gladio is still in effect.
Lyman Lemnitzer was the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Allen Dulles was the Director of the CIA who both signed and approved Operation Northwoods. A sinister plot to kill Americans on American soil and blame it on Cuba to gain public support for an invasion of Cuba during the cold war. If Kennedy hadn't vetoed the idea, they would have implemented it. That is not a conspiracy theory, that is a historical fact. Kennedy fired Allen Dulles and reassigned Lyman Lemnitzer to Europe where he actually implemented that same plan there as Operation Gladio.
Truthers question 9/11 for good reason.
Canadian man's selfie altered to look like Paris suicide bomber
CBC is reporting that "A Spanish newspaper apologized Sunday after it printed the photo of a Canadian Sikh man, which had been altered and presented as the image of a person responsible for the deadly attacks in Paris on Friday. The image appeared to show Jubbal, who was not identified by name, wearing a suicide bomb vest and holding a Qur'an." Sikh are not Muslin. They don't use the Qur'an and they don't speak Arabic they speak Punjabi.
CBC claims "the photo was eventually posted by an unofficial ISIS support group on the social media platform Telegram, the same platform that ISIS used to claim responsibility for the Paris attacks." Gee I wonder if that's the same ISIS support group CSIS was caught funding?

One for the road. The Vancouver Province is reporting that the Vancouver Police Department is asking the public for ideas as it sets its strategic goals for the rest of the decade. “We need input from our community on our priorities, goals and what your police department should be focusing on for the next five years,” Chief Constable Adam Palmer said on Tuesday. What a novel idea. The police are asking the public how they want their tax dollars spent. One step forward. Then the corupt extremists jump on the band wagon calling for an end to the ban on lethal injection sites. Two steps back. Clearly we need a balance between the extremes
Prior to the last election the Vancouver Police Department were in a slight conflict with the Harper government over policing prioritization. With all the lobbying for the legalization of marijuana, the VPD stop cracking down on pot stores so it could focuses on more violent crime. The Harper government didn't like that and sent in the RCMP to enforce their mandatory minimum sentences for possession of pot. From one extreme to the other. It is clear that way too many people here smoke way too much pot. Yet throwing everyone in jail for smoking pot is insane. It prevents us from being bale to confront hard drugs and the violent crime associated with them.
Vancouver's safe injection site has been a complete failure as has the insane policy of abandoning the four pillars program in the DTES. There is nothing safe about injecting poison into human beings. That lethal injection site has created a black hole of crime and violence all around it. It has created more addicts. It has not reduced addiction. John McKay, the VPD ninja, explained what was wrong with the lethal injection site in Vancouver. It caused the police to create a tolerance zone of drug dealing all around it. They let crack dealers sell crack in public all around it. That irresponsible practice has created a toilet of violence, exploitation and misery all around it.
Earlier this year we heard how the methadone program has become a sea of corruption. That pharmaceutical scam ripping off tax dollars has become big business that ties into the pharmacists and the doctors making the prescriptions. The doctors don't reduce the dosages. They turn people into methadone addicts for life all paid with tax dollars. Insite is part of that scam. The Vancouver Province article claimed Vancouver's top doctor is calling for an end to the ban on lethal injection sites. That is obscene. Fire him. He is part of the scam. Ask Dr. Colin Mangham who is an expert in the field of prevention and has worked in the field since 1979. He was fired for telling the truth and speaking out against Insite because he was not part of the scam that ties into the corupt recovery houses that are merely flop houses that exploit the methadone program while addicts stay high and get no treatment. There is an excellent recovery program in Surrey that can't get government funding because it helps get addicts off drugs instead of turning them into methadone addicts for life. I kid you not. Addicts need more than a clean needle.
The Insite scam even went so far as to giving addicts heroin at tax payers expense. The Harper government got a lot of things wrong over the years but opposing the use of tax dollars to buy heroin for drug addicts is one thing they got right. If we are going to move forward as a nation, we need to confront the medical and pharmaceutical scam burning tax dollars and promoting the violence and exploitation of addiction. Handing out free crack pipes is not the New York model. It is social irresponsibility that condones the murder of Janice Shore and Ashely Machiskinic.
So if we want to talk about policing prioritization in Vancouver let's set aside pot and focus in on crack and crystal meth. If we arrest everyone selling crack outside the lethal injection site at Main and Hastings we will see an instant transformation in the violence and exploitation we are currently enabling and promoting there.

The morning breaks, the shadows flee. Canadians have spoken. Justin Trudeau's campaign was one of hope and tolerance over Harper's hate and fear. One of the slogans on facebook was "I don't hate my neighbors. They make me samosas." Harper's legacy is one of hate, intolerance, fiscal irresponsibility and tax paid propaganda. Stephen Harper abandoned every traditional conservative principle known to man. He took the Reform Party and merged with Mulroneyism, the very entity the Reform Party was created to oppose. Canada is better than that. That's why Dona Cadman pulled her support. Hamilton made us proud to be Canadian. Thomas Mulcair was a good man. It's time for all of us to move forward. Peace.
Update: I will say this: civil liberty is important. Justin's father, Pierre Elliot Trudeau, was the one who gave us the sacred Charter of Rights. That was a good thing. We can debate property rights and gun ownership until the cows come home. The right to a fair trial, the right to have a lawyer, the need to be charged with an offense before being arrested and detained, the protection from unnecessary searches and seizures as well as protection from warantless surveillance are all fundamental rights in any democratic society. Those same rights are found in the US Bill of Rights as well as the Canadian Charter of Rights.
I did not endorse Justin Trudeau during his campaign. At first I was exited about the idea of him running but was shocked when he voted with Harper to throw away the Charter of Rights his own father gave us. In those votes, Thomas Mulcair supported the Charter of Rights, Justin Trudeau did not. Harper was the evil emperor who did everything in his power to crush those rights.
I am encouraged by the fact that Justin is determined to amend the hated Bill C-51 immediately. Amending it isn't good enough. It needs to be thrown out because it is illegal. It violates the Charter of Rights which is the highest law of this land. I am hopeful he is not paying lip service to civil liberty. I am hopeful that we can now celebrate the anniversary of the Canadian Charter of Rights, something Harper refused to do. I am hopeful that now we can once again protect civil liberty after Stephen Harper destroyed it.
I am encouraged Justin has notified Obama that he will keep his campaign promise and end Canada's participation with bombing raids in Syria. Canada had a long history of peace keeping established by Lester B Person who won the Nobel Peace prize in 1957. Before Stephen Harper, Canada never had a reputation for invading other countries. Canadians were always the diplomats trying to keep the peace. We took combat roles in WWI and WWII as well as in the Korean war because we were helping liberate countries who were invaded and oppressed.
During the last US election, Donald Trump stated his position on the war in Libya. He said he would invade them and take their oil. He said when you go to war and you win, that is the spoils of war. Donald Trump was simply an honest George Bush. He was however, not a patriot. The American revolution was about putting an end to imperialism and creating a free republic. It was not about creating a new super power to take over and rob the world. The American Constitution protects a free republic. It does not create an empire that takes over other countries and turns them into colonies. I seem to remember some split tea over taxation without representation.
Chretien was right for not participating in the invasion of Iraq which was based on a premeditated lie. MI 6 gave the media false information about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. The US sold Saddam Hussein chemical weapons to use on Iran just like England sold Chemical weapons to Syria. Canada was wrong for helping Sarkozy, le chien sale, execute Gaddafi for choosing to buy a reactor from Argentina instead of France. History has recorded that.
Justin Trudeau scraping Harper's fleet of F-35's is a good thing. The F-35's are a bad investment. They are expensive to maintain, Canada can't facilitate the air to air refueling and they don't work in Canada's arctic so they aren't for defending Canada, they are for invading other countries for their oil. The Boeing Super hornet is a much better investment. Boeing is good. Lockheed Martin is bad.
If we want to confront ISIS in Syria then we are going to have to explain why Stephen Harper's body guard and CSIS were funding them. If we want to confront terrorism in Canada we need to charge CSIS with murder for supplying the explosives for the Air India bombing. We need to stop spending millions of tax dollars trying to turn drug addicts into terrorists. What happened to John Nuttal in Surrey wasn't just entrapment, it was unethical. I've heard talk about a new missing woman's inquiry. How about a missing money inquiry? How about investigating the billions of dollars CSIS and the RCMP's anti terror unit lose not just spend from their budget every year. That is theft. When you give a drug addict thousands of dollars to commit a terrorist act and the C-4 explosives to do it, you haven't saved the world from a terrorist, you just created one.
So let's hope Justin Trudeau can restore Canadian dignity which Stephen Harper desecrated. The Empire will not strike back on my blog simply because in Canada the Force has awakened. Trudeaumania has begun. Gentlemen may cry conspiracy theory conspiracy theory but there is no theory. The conspiracy has already begun. This is the new Star Wars trailer. Peace.
Happy Halloween! One comment on Justin Trudeau's family Halloween picture was "Canada's own royal family." Young girls on twitter said Canada's new Prime Minister looks like a Disney Prince.
Warning: Attacks on civil liberty disguised as free trade
Justin Trudeau promotes trade agreement with Japan. Is this really a trade agreement or does it really do away with civil liberty like FIPA and all the others? Free trade is good. Compensation awards and removing civil liberty is not. The problem with NAFTA was the chapter 11 compensation awards. It gives corporations the right to sue the government under closed door tribunals not courts, and get financial compensation if the government prevents the corporation from doing something harmful. That is insane. It gave one corporation a lump sum of tax dollars because the government wouldn't let them dump toxic chemicals in Canada.
The compensation awards are bad business for tax payers financially and they remove citizens' democratic rights. Instead of elimination this provision from successive trade agreements, each trade agreement has made this insanity worse. Civil liberty is still under attack.

Here it is. Kerri Krysko's second book Kerried Away has now been released in paperback and can be ordered from Chapters or Indigo. Although I have stopped making new posts on the blog I did say I would post a link to Kerri's new book when it is released and that day has come.
The revised second edition of her first book Kerri On, is now available at Chapters or Indigo and in electronic format on Google Play. As Kerri mentioned in an interview, although she associated with many of the big names in the local gang war, she has never named any of them because that is not what her book is about. All Hells Angels don't beat their wives any more then all cops do. I was able to interview the "Nanny" people refer to who was really their babysitter. Although she has not been named, she is a real person I met and had an interview with.
Although Kerri's second book Kerried Away is harder hitting then the first, the healing and inspiration gives the reader an inside look at a dark world she rose above.

Today is the day my enemies will rejoice. Today is the day I finally shut down the blog. All good things must come to an end. All the court stuff has been resolved. It's just that I've taken this as far as I think I can and there is no sense in repeating myself over and over. I will simply record my dissent and walk away. The bottom line is that my kids really want me to shut it down.
Although I have always been involved in some form of community service throughout my life I have always believed that no other success compensates for failure in the home. Although my kids are all grown up the back lash from this blog has indeed adversely affected them and it's time for us to move forward. This blog has never been about me. It's always been about the cause.
I was hoping to hold off until Kerri Krysko released her second book but that day has almost come and I will post the link when it is ready. I supported her cause because I believed she could become a powerful influence for good just like I supported TBM Fresh Start in Scandinavian.
Leaving the gang life and having a fresh start is a move in a positive direction. To do that we have to leave the life behind. We don't need to talk about it all the time. We need to talk about other things. We have seen how the gang life is filled with greed and betrayal. There is no loyalty or honour in it. There will always be crime and criminals. We need to be careful what we support.
What they did to Janice Shore was wrong. History has recorded that. As I have said there are many other bloggers that are prepared to take up the cause. I have said all I had to say. I have posted my e-book for free which basically summarizes my position. Peace. Just remember that life does not end at death and what we do in life echos in eternity. Carry on my wayward son.
Joey Verma killed Britney Irving to pay a debt. He didn't rip her off to pay the debt his debt was forgiven when he did the hit. He was promised the position of Vice President in the Kingpin Crew for murdering her. When that information went public the Kingpin Crew were disbanded.

New: Hiking, Snowshoeing and Kayaking around Vancouver
Sunday, September 6, 2015
Global is reporting that former Vancouver Police Department detective Lori Shenher has released her book That Lonely Section of Hell: The botched investigation of a serial killer who almost got away. "In her book, Ms. Shenher chronicles the missed opportunities, lack of resources and jurisdictional challenges that plagued her investigation and resulted in more women going missing even as Mr. Pickton was on her – and others’ – radar."
It's all interesting but the main thing we need to remember is that Robert Pickton did not act alone so all the red hearing drama about why it took so long to catch Robert Pickton is pretty irrelevant to the question that asks why are we still refusing to look at other suspects?
The judge gave instructions to the jury that they could convict Robert Pickton of murder even if he wasn't the only person involved in the murders. The judge went so far as to say the jury could convict Robert Pickton even if he wasn't the main person involved just an active participant. The question is, if Robert Pickton didn't act alone, then why are we not looking at other suspects especially when there is a whole list of victims he hasn't even been tried on. That should have been the mandate of the Missing Woman Inquiry.
As soon as the Hells Angels were mentioned in the Missing Woman Inquiry, Wally Oppal shut down the Inquiry and turned it into a less adversarial Panel Discuss where he could more easily censor what evidence was submitted. He ruled out a massive amount of evidence base on his claim that the mandate of the Missing Woman's Inquiry was not to examine the possibility of other suspects. That makes him culpable in the cover up.
It all boils down to the Dianne Rock story. Dianne Rock claimed she was gang raped on the Pickton farm. That implies more then one suspect. Her friend Janice Edwards testified how she picked Dianne up at a gas station hysterical and beaten claiming she had been gang raped on the farm. This was an independent observer who saw the bruises and witnessed her fear and hysteria. I obtained a copy of the court transcript of her testimony at the pre trial and posted it online now that the publication ban has finally been lifted.
In Stevie Cameron's book On the Farm she was very clear about the Hells Angels involvement with Piggy's Palace and the Pickton farm. Page 137 of the book On the Farm states: "But the truth is that almost all the people in the community knew the Palace as a wild party place with drugs and prostitutes. And everyone knew that the bikers who attended usually finished the parties at their own place across from the Pickton farm, a clubhouse that had become infamous as a booze can serving alcohol and drugs to members and friends. By the end of 1996 the neighbourhood became known in criminal circles as a biker area, one controlled by the Hells Angels."
The Globe and Mail reported that the Missing Woman Inquiry was going to hear that off-duty officers “frequented” Piggy’s Palace. Wally Oppal shut down the inquiry before that evidence was submitted. Stevie Cameron's book On the Farm confirmed that allegation about Piggy's Palace and stated that "the place was full of cops too, lots of them, all in plainclothes." (p 138)

Growing up I always had a huge respect for the Chief. A mountain peak outside of Squamish. As a young child the sheer face seemed colossal. My martial arts instructor got into rock climbing and talked about climbing the face. I was like good luck with that. Then a few years ago someone said you know there is a trail to the top you can hike up around back. I had no idea so I decided to check it out. It's awesome. Second peak is a bit better then first peak. The hike is short and steep like the Grouse Grind and the view is indeed awesome. This is where I hiked again today.
When I first heard they were building a gondola at the Chief I thought it was going to suck. Instead of having to hike up you just take the gondola. However, the new Sea to Sky gondola doesn't take you to the top of the Chief. It goes beside it and far above it. So if you want all the breath taking views without the physical exertion, the new gondola is the way to go. It was packed on the long weekend though. If you take the gondola up there are still lots of hiking you can do. Sky Pilot is a good hike that is accessible from the top of the gondola. However several people have died doing it recently slipping on the steep snow pack. Even when there is no snow the summit looks pretty steep. Nevertheless, there are lots of scenic safe hiking trails from the top of the gondola.
Now that things have settled back to normal on the blog I thought it would be appropriate for me to point out the obvious. There are millions of blogs on the Internet. Everyone and their dog has one. There are travel blogs, crime blogs, cooking blogs, blogs about every subject under the sun.
Michael Geist is a lawyer that blogs about free speech on the Internet. He is very credible and his blog is worth following. With all the gang violence true crime is a subject that is steadily gaining popularity in the book stores. Consequently there are many crime blogs on the Internet. Mine is just one of many. Kim Bolan is a local journalist that has a crime blog. I started my web site and blog shortly after she did in answer to a grieving mother's plea.
Long before Kim and I started, Leo Knight started a popular blog called Prime Time Crime. He is a former police officer. Mike McIntyre is a journalist with the Winnipeg Free Press that runs a blog called Mike on Crime. He has also written a book called True Tales of Law and Disorder summarizing 20 years of crime reporting. Chris Doucette is a crime journalist from Ontario that writes for the Toronto Sun.
The Borderland Beat is an excellent blog about the Mexican drug war. Wikipedia states Borderland Beat is a prominent English language narco blog which is considered a leading source for news on the Mexican Drug War. The blog was started in April 2009 by an anonymous individual using the pseudoynm Buggs, who remains the sole owner. The blog has been referred to and quoted in the New York Times, Small Wars Journal and the Houston Chronicle.
Of course we remember Felina - María del Rosario Fuentes Rubio. She was a courageous blogger who ran a facebook group highlighting missing persons in her community and exposed cartel members in Mexico. When the cartel found out who she was they murdered her and posted a picture of her dead body on her facebbok account. My plea to her follows was to continue posting pictures of missing people but stop posting information about the cartel. It's too dangerous. Like the serenity prayer declares we need to have the serenity to accept things we cannot change, courage to change the things we can and wisdom to know the difference.
After my court case hit the newspaper another crime blogger who goes by the name Ace Ventura has taken up the torch and highlights Hells Angels involvement with criminal activity. One blog reader asked if that was my new blog. No it is not. If you look at his archives he has been going for quite a while. Everyone has their own writing style. He has a picture from the Simpsons on his blog. That's not my thing but realize many others like that show. Humor is a good thing.
When I first started my blog people thought I was Kim Bolan. I was like are you kidding? Kim is a lot nicer than I am. Now my identity has been released and people know who I am. The bottom line is who I am just doesn't matter. Belt Drive Betty and the Aging Rebel have their own blogs about biker issues. No one cares who they are. People just like to read what they have to say. The bottom line is if you don't like what I have to say, don't read my blog. There are millions of other blog out there you can read. So Dennis Watson runs Gangsters out.
Knowing that I was never a cop or a gang member sheds light on my background and perspective. I never sold drugs and I was never a narc. I was a Regional Coordinator with the Guardian Angels not the Hells Angels. I was trained in New York City and traveled around the world with the group starting up new chapters in Canada and the United States. When I was in New York City the first time I lived in a basement in Harlem and worked with Tut, the New York City Secret Weapon. When I came back to New York the second time I worked with Fox busting up crack dealers on the Deuce. Working with the community to get rid of crack dealers is what we did. I know what the New York model is because I was there. I saw it.
The reason I started my blog anonymously is because my blog isn't about me. I'm not trying to promote myself and run for office. I'm trying to promote a cause. Getting rid of crack dealers and the violent crime it brings to our community. I don't have beef with the Hells Angels collectively, I have beef with crack dealers individually. Selling drugs in clubs is none of my business. Giving crack to the homeless for free then beating the life out of them for payment is. That is exploitation. What they did to Janice Shore was wrong. Anyone who cannot see that is blind and heartless.
The other reason I started my blog anonymously is because the first thing these clowns do when they find out who I am is go after my daughter. That is low life. If you have beef with me, face me, don't go after my family. Blaze keeps posting my daughter's picture on the Dirty and repeats the same old lie over and over again thinking if he repeats the same lie enough times someone will eventually believe it. Then he calls me a liar. Blaze is the liar and is a false accuser.
My daughter has worked at various jobs sites over the last few years and tragically someone from each site usually recognizes her from what Blaze has posted on the Dirty. Other times the subject of my blog comes up and she's like F*ck my life. One time someone from her work came up to her and said those are some pretty mean things they are saying about your mother and she asked what things? About how she ran off with a member of the Hells Angels and left your father. She laughed and said that is so not true. My mother is afraid of her own shadow. My parents divorced years ago. The Hells Angels had nothing to do with it.
