The Listowel Freepress is reporting that Owen Czech of Calgary, Alberta was pulled over in Ontario on April 11 and was caught with cocaine, methadone and a weapon. I assume more details of the bust will be forthcoming. Owen is a member of the Calgary Southland chapter of the Hells Angels. I'm not sure what he was doing with methadone. That's what they prescribe people who are addicted to heroin.
Of course the big news is the police crackdown on the Edmonton Hells Angels and the Whiteboy Posse murder trial. The Whiteboy posse sell drugs for the Edmonton Hells Angels. This is exactly what's supposed to happen. When the gangs do something absurd like shoot an innocent mother or decapitate someone fro a drug debt, then that brings a huge amount of attention to them and the police respond by cracking down on their business.
That is exactly what should of happened in Surrey when Janice Shore was brutally beaten to death for a drug debt in Whalley. Only instead of clamping down on the crack dealers in Surrey, Bill Fordy clamped down on the jaywalkers. You can sell crack in Surrey but you can't jay walk. It's time for Bill Fordy to transfer. Dianne Watts' claim that she is leaving Surrey a safer place is an offensive lie. She did nothing about the drug related crime she promised to address and left us with the biggest debt in the city's history.
2013 was the most homicides in one year for Surrey ever. Many of those murders were drug related. Business's complaints of drug dealers in Newton and Whalley fell on deaf ears as did their complaints about drug related crime. That is Dianne Watts and Bill Fordy's legacy in Surrey.

How's that for a headline? Law Society Bans Gay Lawyers. Or how about Law Society Bans Jewish or Muslims Lawyers. How would we feel about that? First of all it would be illegal. Second of all it would be wrong. This is what comes to mind when I read an astounding editorial in today's Vancouver Province. The editorial sates that Law Societies are wrong for caving in to activists calling for them to refuse to allow graduates from TWU's law program to be certified. I didn't even realize such an outrageous criminal act was even going to a vote.
It's no different than banning anyone who is Gay, Jewish or Muslim from being a lawyer. It is discrimination on prohibited grounds. Clearly some are concerned about the fact that Trinity Western University is a Religious private school. Does that means these unlearned enemies of the Charter of Rights would decertify the Columbus School of Law at the Catholic University of America because that is exactly what they are trying to do. It is illegal and wrong to do so.
There are two cardinal sins of a free republic. The first is adopting a single state religion. Everyone has to be Catholic, or Church of England or Buddhist or Muslim or whatever. The second is like unto it. Banning religion altogether. A free republic does neither. A free republic means an Atheist and a Christian are both allowed to become lawyers.
This is exactly why some religious groups oppose the legalization of gay marriage. They are afraid that once they allow it, they will force all religions to perform it against their will or lose their charitable status. That would,be absurd. The United Church of Canada came up with the logical compromise. Allow gay civil marriage and allow individual religions to perform gay marriage if they chose but do not force them to do it against their will because that would violate their religious freedom. It's as simple as that.
In contrast, refusing to certify graduates from the TWU law school is no different that refusing to certify a gay lawyer. Both are wrong and illegal. Another concern they raise is the University's moral code. If this wasn't such a criminal act it would be laughable. Why does it not come as a big surprise that the Law society do not want to certify lawyers who have moral standards? Kinda like the saying, what do you call 10,000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean? A good start.
You see judges have to be lawyers before they become judges. These extremists don't want judges with moral standards to interfere with their interpretation of the law. Murder is a moral standard. Thou shalt not kill. Theft is a moral standard. Thou shalt not steal. All our laws are based on moral standards.
Nova Scotia says it will accredit Trinity Western law graduates — but only if they drop their gay sex policy. You can't do that. It is illegal. That's like saying they will accept Christian lawyers if they renounce Christ or Muslim lawyers if they renounce Mohammed or Gay lawyers if they renounce their orientation. That is religious discrimination and is illegal in a free republic. This doesn't come to a popularity vote. What if everyone got together and said they wanted to ban Islam from Canada. It doesn't matter if the majority of Canadians voted in favor if doing so. It would be illegal according to our Charter of Rights. That's all there is to it. The fact that this discussion is even on the table is astounding. Banning lawyers from having moral standards or religious beliefs is not what our soldiers died in the trenches for. It is exactly what they fought against.
Tony Wilson, a Vancouver Lawyer who states that he is an atheist who voted in favor of accrediting TWU Law school grads pointed out that the current case law upholds the Charter of Rights. The Trinity Western University v. B.C. College of Teachers case is still the law of Canada. That 2001 case, from the Supreme Court of Canada, determined that the B.C. College of Teachers could not deny accreditation of TWU’s teaching degree. So clearly what they are doing now is in violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights as well as the subsequent case law upholding it.

There are a medley of stories to catch up on but I want to pause on this recent stabbing in Surrey. Don Pitcairn from the White Rock Sun is reporting that his nephew was stabbed at a house party in Newton over the weekend. As soon as anyone says Surrey house party everyone tends to roll their eyes. Yet the circumstances of the assault are very disturbing.
The kid tried to break up a fight and was stabbed in the chest. He booked it for the door and four pieces of Surrey White Trash stabbed him in the back seven times and all gave him the boots in the front yard before they stole his wallet and cell phone. That is outrageous. One can understand that someone could get accidentally stabbed while trying to break up a fight but chasing him down, stabbing him repeatedly in the back then swarming him and give him the boots before stealing his wallet and cell phone. That is low life dirt bag.
What's even more disturbing is that Don has been putting up wanted posters trying to find the suspects who assault his nephew. Not that there's anything wrong with him doing that because there most certainly isn't. What's disturbing is that he has to do that and the suspects aren't already in custody. People at the party know who they were. Even if they were uninvited guests, people have iphones to take pictures and word gets around. People there would have heard by now who it was.
In Don's article he mentions the archaic code of silence thing and the grossly misused term rat. Let me be clear. Anyone who swarms someone and stabs them in the back are the rats not the people who tell the family or the police who did it. People who know who did it and aren't saying anything are the rats. That's all there is to it.
If you know who did it, tell me. I ain't the po po. If the police have a name then the victim can id them and you don't have to testify. This is really important. We can't let this kind of thing happen without doing anything about it. It diminishes all of us. This is not the way we roll in Surrey. That is Surrey trash mentally and it's fine time to take out the trash.

This is the epitome of stupidity. I'm driving by the Surrey Memorial Hospital today and I notice two new huge holes out front each with a new crane in them. Normally this is nothing new since Surrey is growing and they have been doing construction at that hospital for quite some time now. However, as soon as I look at it I notice that something just isn't right.
I scan the scene and say where on earth is that new parkade they just built? Then I focus in on the two holes and to my amazement the two new holes are exactly where the new multi level parking lot was they just built. That is insane. I ask around and read the sign out front only to discover they tore down the new parking lot to build another one. That is complete fiscal responsibility.
The above three pictures are what it looks like now and the next three are from Google Street view which shows the huge parkade they just built that they just tore down. I remember it well because when they first built it we were all mildly synical of how it was such a typical capitalist thing to do. Build a big parking lot to charge customers instead of building more hospital space.
Tearing down a new multi level parkade they just built only to build another parking lot is fiscally irresponsible. My concern has nothing to do with leftist ideals. This is a right wing, capitalist, make money save taxes concern. What they have done is not right wing. What they did was a shoot yourself in the foot waste of tax dollars. I asked why they tore down a new parking lot only to build another one and one lady said so they can't hire any more doctors. Indeed.
It's just like spending all that money upgrading the current City Hall in the perfect location for business only to throw it away and create this grossly extravagant ivory tower in the City Centre that we don't need. Evidently Dianne Watts did build that incinerator in Surrey after all. Only it doesn't burn garbage, it just burns tax dollars. The rest of the country need to understand what kind of fiscal disaster Dianne Watts has created in Surrey before she enters federal politics and spreads that fiscally irresponsible plague across the country. Buyer Beware.

The Voice reported that Dianne Watts civil suit was scheduled to be in court June 17 2014 at the BC Supreme Court in Vancouver. This civil suit was in relation to a car accident she was involved in on April 23, 2010. Laila Yuile has reported on the background of the case. I am told the case has now been settled out of court but am trying to find a link confirming that. The Voice did report on February 14th 2014 that it was scheduled for June 17th. It is possible they made an error as the secret settlement hasn't been mentioned in the media yet.
There was a great deal of false information being reported about the accident in the press when the story first broke. Initially it was reported that the other party ran a red light and that the mayor was T-boned. However, that was simply untrue. Later the police admitted that the mayor's car T-boned the other vehicle but claimed the mayor had the green light. According to the mayor of course. However, the other driver who sued the mayor claims they had the green light and it was the mayor who ran the red light.
Lets' look at the scene and determine believability of the conflicting claims. Police say Watts was driving her white Cadillac SUV east on 24th Avenue when it collided with a dark-coloured sedan heading north on 128th Avenue around 11 p.m. 128th is the main road and 24th is the side road that intersects it. Locals who are familiar with the intersection claim that the mayor's story is not believable because it is a demand light.
Since 128th Street is the main road, it normally has the green light. For that light to change, you have to stop at the intersection on 24th Avenue to trigger the demand light. Since we know the other vehicle was traveling down 128th street and that the mayor was traveling along 24th Avenue, it was not physically possible for the mayor to t-bone the other vehicle if she had the green light since she would of had to have come to a complete stop to trigger the demand light first.
If Dianne Watts is found culpable in this case there is no way the taxpayers of Surrey should be held liable for her negligence. If I get in a car accident on my way home from work or a work Christmas party, my employer is not responsible for my car accident.
Update: Ironically Global and CBC are reporting that Dianne Watts has just announced she will not seek reelection as the Mayor of Surrey. Oh Happy Day. The Globe and Mail reported that the local concerns with the crime she failed to address would have made her reelection difficult. This announcement fuels speculation that she will be running for Stephen Harpers tax and spend NeoCons in Whiterock federally since the BC Liberals have dumped her. What a perfect place for her. That way she can continue the same old con about reducing taxes and spending then do the exact opposite when in power. Pork Barrel Politics strikes again.
We've all heard about Soldier Boy and the Harlem Shake. I can assure you that the Harlem Shake has nothing to do with Harlem. When I stayed there back in the /80's there was a different dance that was popular. It was based on a song by Joeski Love called Doing the Pee Wee Herman. I always thought it was an old LL Cool J song but it turns out it was Joeski Love.
When I was in New York, all the brothers were doing it. They'd laugh and say Doing the Pee Wee Herman then start this ridiculous dance that pulled their knees in together while they moved their pointer fingers twice in the front then twice in the back. They knew it looked silly but they all thought it was hilarious. Everyone was doing it and I was wondering were on earth it came from.
Years later I finally figured it out. I saw a video clip on youtube from an old Pee Wee Herman movie where he was caught in a biker bar and accidentally knocked over a line of Harleys. They dragged him into the bar and right before they were going to beat the life out of him he made one last request. He asked they play the song Tequila on the jukebox while he danced to it on the table. He ended up breaking some glasses to the bikers approval and since he won them over they let him live. When I saw the video I said that's it! That the dance all the brothers were doing back in the /80's to the song that made a reference to Pee Wee Herman.
Well now thanks to Alex Tsakumis, we have a new song and dance. This one's called the #AGT Poodle. It starts off like the Creep from Lonely Island and Nicki Minaj by raising your hands in a claw like motion and starts to snarl like a dog, only it's much faster and much more frantic. It's kind of like a dog chasing it's tail only it's more like a small dog frantically biting at the wind all around it in every direction. If there's any musicians out there who can put it to music we'll start the new dance sensation. BTW Political Satire is not unlawful. Yet.
We need to take a deeper look at Alex Tsakumis' bullying and the circumstances that surround it. We've already written about his recent bullying of a blog reader who posted a link to one of my blog posts on Twitter. He called her home and left a message on her voice mail threatening to sue her for doing so. However, he had already found her phone number and called her at home threatening her about an earlier post she made on Twitter before that.
Before she committed the unpardonable sin of posting a link to one of my blog posts, she retweeted a tweet from someone else who simply asked what the status of Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts' court case regarding her civil suit for her car accident back in 2010. A valid question since it will be in Vancouver Supreme court on June 17th.
All she did is retweet a tweet from someone else asking a simple and valid question. For that heinous crime Alex Tsakumis went to her personal web site, found her real name and looked up her telephone number in the phone book and called her at home raging on her for making such an offensive post. Clearly Alex is Dianne Watt's attack poodle ruining interference for her in the press.
Again linking is not defamation. I submit that applies to retweeting a tweet from someone else especially when there was no possible way there was anything unlawful about the original tweet since it simply asked a valid question. Why is Alex Tsakumis so obsessed with Dianne Watts?
This whole smear campaign of Barinder Rasode doesn't make sense. He keeps slamming her and called her a whore for exploiting the death of a hockey mom for her own political gain. That simply doesn't make sense. The whole community was outraged by the murder of a hockey mom in Newton and were upset the city has done nothing about ongoing complaints about drug dealers in the area creating a large amount of violent crime there.
Barinder Rasode steps in and says, you're right, we haven't done enough and we need to do more. At first I thought she was running interference for Team Godzilla. Trying to spin their negligence by sounding empathetic. Instead of embracing the quest Dianne Watts and her attack poodles launched a smear campaign against her. Alex's claims don't make sense and are very hypocritical.
Dianne Watts did the exact same thing when she ran against Doug McCallum. She claimed we weren't doing enough on crime and ran against him on that very platform. He is complaining about Barinder for doing the exact same thing his client did against McCallum. Not only that but Dianne Watts' crime prevention coalition campaign has been one complete fraud. That's why locals are upset. She said one thing and did another. Alex's minimizing a hockey mom's death is offensive.
What is also concerning is Alex's frantic bullying of everyone who disagrees with him. His burning bridges with Bill Tieleman was absolutely bizarre as is all these endless threats of frivolous legal action. If you look at the court registry, Alex is always suing or getting sued by someone.
There are many more cases I should expound upon but I will suffice it to say that the crazed obsession with bullying and threatening everyone one is concerning. It's time to have a talk with Doctor Phil. The guy is barely over 5 feet tall. He is definitely over compensating for something.
I don't know what Alex is so upset about. My cholesterol is a little high but I did get a haircut. How do you like me now? Please advise. Second thought don't bother. I've heard enough.
Alex is a bully. Long after threatening me with a frivolous lawsuit for telling the truth he is now stalking a random blog reader who happened to post a link to one of my blog posts on Twitter. Here is the message he left on her phone after he already called her home threatening her.
Here's the deal. Linking is not defamation. That is the case law. That is the jurisprudence. If I or anyone else makes a blog post that quotes a news outlet and says the Vancouver Sun is reporting that... I can't get sued for defamation if the Vancouver Sun actually did say that even if what they said it untrue. If the Vancouver Sun printed something that is untrue, you have to sue them. You can't sue someone who linked to an article they wrote. This matter has been tried in the courts and is now a part of case law. It has already been decided by the Supreme Court of Canada so there is no sense in retying the matter again when it has already been decided. CBC has reported on the decision as well as Michael Geist. True me blogging about something is a bit different but this woman just posted a link which relates specifically to the Supreme Court Decision about linking.
I submit that the same applies to posting a link on Twitter or Facebook. Linking is not defamation. This is the post on Twitter that Alex is freaking out about:
They Tweeted the tittle of one of my blog posts and a link to it. Alex has absolutely no business threatening this woman with legal action and had absolutely no business repeatedly phoning her at home. That is harassment. He is a bully.
If I have said something that is untrue, then he has to sue me not someone who links to what I have said. End of story. Any further phone calls to this woman constitutes harassment. There is absolutely no jurisdiction to sue her. He has to sue me instead. However, there is absolutely no grounds whatsoever to sue me because I didn't say anything that is untrue. I posted a screen cap of what he really did say as evidence. When Alex said I have misrepresented what he said that is totally untrue. The screen cap is proof he is lying.
On January 6th 2014 The Surrey Now along with several other media outlets reported that Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts apologized for liking a Facebook post calling one of her counselors a Coward. The media were being nice. On January 8th I made a blog post pointing out that the post Dianne Watts clicked like to didn't say coward, it said whore. Alex Tsakumis was the one who made the original post and Dianne Watts clicked like on it.
Since then Dianne Watts came up with this ridiculous story claiming that she clicked like on it by accident. I find that very hard to believe. That now leaves us with one of two options, she's lying again and liked a post calling Barinder Rasode a whore or she is an idiot and has no idea how to use Facebook and can't figure out how to click like on a post or how to click unlike on it after she clicked like by accident. So by her own claim she is either a liar or an idiot.
Not long after making the post, Alex contacted me by E-mail and threatened legal action against me for defaming him. At the time he claimed that further down in the comments of that post things were said about him that was untrue. He was referring to his business interests owning property in the conflicted proposed tower in Semiahmoo that the local residents are fighting with a passion. He claimed he wasn't the one that owned the property it was someone else by the same name. I said that's not a very common surname. Is it a relative? He then said it was his cousin. So I clarified in the comments that is wasn't Alex the blogger it was his cousin. So yes it was a different person but yes it was a family member. End of story, confusion clarified.
Yet that wasn't enough. He kept going on and on claiming I had defamed him and he was going to sue me. I pulled a George Buchanan and said what have I written that is untrue? Tell me specifically what statement. He refused. He demanded I remove his name from my entire blog instantly or he was going to sue me on the spot. I said removing his name from my blog entirely is totally unrealistic. I have a right to tell the public what he really called Barinder especially after he boldly wrote into the paper after the fact and instead of apologizing ranted about how he stood by what he said. If he was bold enough to write into the paper and tell the public he was defiantly standing by what he had said, then I have a Charter Right to tell the public what he really did say not the watered down family version.
After he threatened me I made this second post clarifying the matter. I thought for sure we were going to court. I have been there many times before. I knew he didn't have a case. I heard nothing for several months until recently. All of a sudden he starts up his bullying again. He made up some ridiculous story about how I misrepresented what he said and how I posted a draft version of what he said. I pointed out that was a lie. There is no such thing as a draft post on Facebook. You either post it or you don't. Someone on his friend's list got a screen cap of what he originally said. The one that Dianne Watts actually clicked like to.
At least now he came clean and told me what his real concern was with my blog post. It had nothing to do with anything anyone said in the comments. He wanted what he really said censored from the Internet because it made him look bad. It was however the truth and does not constitute defamation. I have a lot more to say on this but will let this suffice for now. There will be more to come. Much more. Linking is not Defamation. Alex Tsakumis is a bully. He has no right to harass this woman for someone I said which was true. End of story. Well, not quite...
Maybe Alex just wants a starring role in Dianne Watt's new movie? Go Godzilla!

Global is reporting that the Surrey RCMP drug section searched a property in the 20600 block of 72nd Avenue in Langley yesterday. A 36-year-old Surrey resident was arrested and has since been released until the drug related charges have been approved.
It doesn't say what drugs they found or were looking for but the name of their picture says meth lab which would explain why they are wearing hazmat clothing. Crystal meth is nasty. They make it with Drano. That was Kerry Ryan Renaud's specialty.
The Peace Arch News is referring to it as a clandestine lab and that the house appeared to be the focus of a large-scale operation. They are also reporting that a storage locker in South Surrey was searched as part of the investigation. No chemicals were found in the storage locker but other items were seized in connection with the investigation into the lab.
The Surrey Now is reporting that it was ecstasy not crystal meth and that National Geographic filmed the raid. Now that the sassafras oil used to make ecstasy has become so hard to get, E is made from a different much more dangerous chemical now called BZP which results in a different product and many more fatalities.
Update: According to ScanBC #Vancouver Fire Hazmat Team was on scene investigating several garbage bags full of unknown chemicals at 2100 West 46th Ave and #Vancouver Fire Hazmat Team was responding to 3900 Knight Street after someone dumped meth lab supplies in an alley. Go Hazmat. Cleaning up toxic waste in a city near you. They ain't afraid of no chemicals.

The Edmonton Sun is reporting that the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team (ALERT) searched seven Edmonton homes this morning, including the Hells Angels Westridge chapter clubhouse near 159 Street and 81 Avenue. Houses in Acheson, Strathcona County, and Leduc were also combed. As a result of the raids Global is reporting that a number of people associated with the Hells Angels were arrested and are facing organized crime charges. Three cheers!
The Edmonton Sun reports that Blake Christie, a full patch member of the Hells Angels, and his 29-year-old associate Kelly Kratky were the focus of the investigation that began in the early part of October. In February, 10 people, including a full patch member of the Hells Angels, were arrested and charged with nearly 40 offenses after police searched four homes — one in St. Albert and four in Edmonton — finding a medley of weapons and drugs.
A couple stories that article linked to that I miss include one from 2012 about two members of the Hells Angels’ Edmonton chapter were handed prison terms for their role in providing protection for a Fort McMurray drug gang.
The other was one from Red Deer 2010 where police were called to the Urban Rodeo in the 4700 Block of Gaetz Avenue on Jan. 24 where it was reported that a group of women were involved in an altercation with several members of the Hells Angels. One man, a 58-year-old from Spruce Grove, faces two charges of assault. His alleged victims are two women, aged 20 and 21. Police say the man is a member of the outlaw motorcycle gang.
Update: Global is now reporting that six members of the Hells Angels are facing organized crime charges: Dominic DiPalma, 33, from Strathcona County, Darcy Lee, 38, from Edmonton, Troy Pawluk, 43, from Edmonton, Eduardo Bartolozzi, 34, from Edmonton, Roy Radies, 50, from Acheson and Dustin Lowry, 35, from Edmonton.
Police seized 19 Hells Angels vests, 26 lbs of marijuana and two handguns. Not a significant haul given the volume of cocaine they have been dealing in Nanaimo and across the country but recognize that they are pretty smart in Edmonton and have the puppet clubs like the Whiteboy Posse do their dirty work for them. Since they are in charge of puppet clubs like the White boy Posse, that makes criminal organization charges totally within order.
The CFSEU-BC retweeted a photo from ALERT on Twitter. The cover of the Edmonton Sun:
A CTV Edmonton video is reporting that the police are starting to show off their trophies from the searches. In the video it shows a guy wearing an 81 support shirt towing a trailer on site the police didn't have a search warrant for. Surely they have grounds for one now. One blog reader identified him to be Shawn Anderson, a striker for the Dirty Few MC.

The Toronto Sun and CJAD are quoting a Journal de Montreal article claiming that Mom Boucher has been kicked out of the Hells Angels. I sincerely doubt it, but it's definitely worth looking into. QMI Agency is a good source. The question is, is it true or is it a propaganda campaign to help with his parole. It could just be his position was been suspended while in jail so someone else can resolve disputes between chapters while he's in jail.
The reason I find it hard to believe is because that was the whole point of the Rock Machine leaders crossing over right before he went to prison. So his friends would protect his political interests. Salvatore Cazetta became the Montreal president.
We know that Boucher became a member of the Hells Angels along with Bif Hammel after the Death Riders betrayal and take over shortly after Boucher got out of prison for armed rape. There have been reports that his influence has started to dwindle over the years. He was stabbed a second time in prison back in 2010. The first time he was stabbed there was swift retaliation. We haven't heard about any retaliation the second time.
I am however, very interested in finding out if the allegation is true. The article didn't say his leadership status was suspended while he's in prison it said he was kicked out as in bad standing. If that is true, then that is profound. Usually that would mean it came from his own chapter. I'm not sure what this East coast meeting is supposed to mean. There are no real chapters east of Quebec. The Hells Angels have been basically banned from Nova Scotia. They just have puppet clubs in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. No one with any authority over Boucher. Quebec has always been over them.
People have been asking if I have heard any news about the James Riach drug bust in the Philippines. I have not. Other than the fact that they are trying to get their search warrant thrown out over claims of an illegal search. However, this article claims the police did in fact get a search warrant. The defense claims they didn't have probable cause to get the search warrant which in my opinion is highly unlikely because they were obviously right.
The civil liberty concern is when the police do warrantless searches. In this case the police did in fact obtain a search warrant. They had to of have had some probable cause because they were right. We know that James Raich is a member of the Independent Soldiers which is a Hells Angels puppet club that sells drugs for the Hells Angels. Spike's other niece was with them in the Philippines and has a child with his co accused. James Riach was with IS member Randy Naicker at the Castle fun Park meeting with the Bacon brothers before the Surrey Six and was in the car when Larry Amero and Jonathon Bacon were shot in Kelowna. There have been unsubstantiated reports that the Mexican cartel has put a hit on them after the bust.
Someone sent in a link to a very interesting graphic about the US incarceration rate and how that has increased with the introduction of privatized prisons. It's actually quite disturbing.
The United States has the highest prison incarceration rate per capita compared to any other country in the world. That is not a good model. Especially for the "free world." Part of the problem is the introduction of privatized prisons that are mandated to make a profit at taxpayers expense. Privatized prisons are a huge conflict of interest.
Some people interpret these statistics to mean the war on drugs is wrong. I disagree. The war on drugs isn't wrong. It's just that the CIA is on the wrong side of that war. I don't think 30 year prison sentences for nonviolent crime are the answer either. 3 months for selling not using crack is not excessive. 6 months for a second offense and a year for a third offense is not excessive. It is fair and reasonable.
The US has a program called three strikes and you're out. Although the US incarceration rate is not a positive model to follow, the Canadian model is on the opposite extreme when dealing with prolific offenders. The more crime a prolific offender commits in Canada the less time they serve in prison. The judges here have it completely backwards. The VPD launched a campaign called 30 strikes and your out. The sad thing is, they weren't kidding. Without going from one extreme to the other, this needs to change.

The trial of White Boy posse member Randy O'Hagan in the Lorry Santos murder is underway. The court was told that it was not uncommon for members who left the gang to be killed because they would know too much about the organization. Such was the case in the Lorry Santos murder.
A member of the gang named Trevor Cromartie also referred to as TJ had left the gang and there was a hit put out on him by the gang. Sadly the shooters got the wrong house and murdered an innocent mother by mistake.
On day three of the trial testimony focused on the involvement of Randy O'Hagan with White Boys Posse member Josh Petrin. Josh was close friends with Sean Jackson aka Fat Mike. Josh got all the product from him. Sean was supplied by the Hells Angels. Josh has been charged with Mitchell Chambers and Brian Gowers murder.
Tyler Corbett is on the right in the top picture. Fat Mike is on the left. One has to wonder, if Randy and Kyle were ordered by the gang to kill Trevor Cromartie for leaving the gang, why aren't the people who ordered the murder on trial as well?
This one is astounding. It's a perfect example of the boiling frog syndrome. If you put a frog into hot water it will jump out but if you put it in warm water and gradually turn up the heat, it will stay there until it boils. That's why FBI Whistle blower Sibel Edmonds calls her blog the Boiling Frog Post.
Everyone complains about the price of gas. However, this new set of record jumps in price is yet another example of how the government has helped destroy a free market with a corporate monopoly. The oil companies can charge whatever they want whenever they want because there is no competition. They have a monopoly on the market that was created with tax dollars.
The Canadian Association of Energy and Pipeline Landowner Associations states: "Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain, like all pipelines in Canada, is a franchise monopoly. That means it is protected by government from competition. Which means it can do what monopolies always do: abuse customers by jacking prices and cutting service. In theory, government regulators are supposed to protect consumers from this sort of thing. But given the reality of regulator capture it doesn’t work that way in practice."
In 1911 the United States Supreme Court ruled that Rockefeller' Standard Oil was an illegal monopoly. Now the politicians who accept huge campaign contributions form the oil companies call monopolies good business. We have no anti trust laws any more. That is the problem right there and right now it is a bigger threat to our civil liberty than Russia.
On top of that, Stephen Harper sold Canada's oil rights to Communist China so every time we get gouged at the pumps we are funding the military expansion of a Communist dictatorship. China supports North Korea just like the Hells Angels support puppet clubs.

There are more scandals to catch up on but since Vaisakhi celebrations abound I thought it would be timely to mention Good Friday on this Easter Weekend. Several years ago an Indo Canadian friend asked me, "If Friday was the day they killed Jesus, why do Christians call it good?"
I paused for a second and thought, OK this is going to be kind of hard to explain. Then I thought, wait a sec, you really don't know? Seriously? I guess it's something we take for granted. It's something we're taught as kids in Sunday school. Wait a minute. Our kids don't go to Sunday school any more. You mean our own kids don't even know any more? That is sad.
Many martyrs have lived noble lives and have died for their beliefs. Christ's atonement was different. It's kinda like trying to get on a bus and not having the fare to pay. Anywhere other an BC this would be a problem. Justice requires the fare be paid. Yet mercy pleads give me a break. However, mercy cannot rob justice since if the driver gave that person a break he would have to give everyone the same break and everyone would ride for free. Another solution is a friend comes by and pays the fare for you so you can fulfill the demands of justice yet still ride the bus.
That's kind of what Christs' atonement did. The wages of sin are death. Christ died in our place so we don't have to. Yet all of us will die a physical death. The atonement makes the resurrection possible. One day everyone will be resurrected and judged. The body and the spirit will be reunited in it's perfect form. An immortal body that doesn't age or die. Because of the atonement everyone will be resurrected. Where we go after this life depends on the life we led and the type of person we became.
The atonement is something we take for granted. It's like a father who worked on a railway drawbridge that took his son to work one day. There's a video clip of the story called the Bridge. A train full of people was about to cross a railway bridge. His job was to make sure the draw bridge was down so the train could cross.
As the train approached the father noticed his son had wandered onto the train track. He was faced with a heart wrenching decision. Leave the bridge up to save his son which would kill all the passengers on the train or lower the drawbridge which would kill his son but save everyone on the train. At the last minute the father decided to save everyone on the train and mourned the loss of his son. The train was safe and everyone survived without even knowning of the sacrifice the father made on their behalf. This parable is a metaphor of God's sacrifice of His son who died for us.
So the short answer to the question is Christians call Friday good because Christ died to make it possible for everyone to live again. Yet it behooves us to pause and remember the day to respect the magnitude of the sacrifice made on our behalf. Some call it folklore. I call it history.
Now I am certainly not the model Christian nor do I agree with many of the doctrinal diversions many make in the name of Christianity. Many years ago I used to work with a very witty and sarcastic Christian they called Dutchy because of his heritage. He used to boast "You can always tell the Dutch but you can't tell them much." He was a good man and a talented musician.
He put out a CD called Retro that had some stirring songs on it. One of my favorites is called the View from an Ivory tower. It starts of saying "There's a man on the TV telling me God wants me living in prosperity. Millions tune in because they like what they hear, even though his gospel is not too clear." Another one I like is called the Parade. He was very cynical of religious hypocrisy and wrote a song about it. He compared it to a big parade of lunatics chasing a snake oil salesman.
Dutchy explained the imagery in the song to me many years ago. He said the parade is led by three different Jimmies: Jimmy Swaggart, Jimmy Baker and Jim Jones. He thought all three Jimmies were the same. When discussing the parade of snake oil salesmen he says he's seen this circus before and he just wished they'd take their side show away from his front door. It's a very appropriate song. Kinda like how Christ called the religious leaders of the time liars, hypocrites and extortionists. He chased the money changers out of the temple for pimping the church for their own personal gain. That was not the intent of his sacrifice. Peace.
The Vancouver Province ran an article that has been floating around of late claiming that pot causes brain damage. No kidding. Everyone knows that pot doesn't make you smart. Stoners aren't very bright. That was the whole point behind the comedy Cheech and Chong.
However, the study claims that the size and shape of two brain regions involved in emotion and motivation may differ in young adults who smoke marijuana at least once a week. There is a difference between mood alteration and brain damage. There is also a huge difference between pot and crack or crystal meth. We used to say Crack Kills when speaking to the youth about drugs. I would sometimes add to that Pot Kills Ambition.
Pot is not nearly as harmful to the body as crack and is likely just as bad as alcohol but one thing excessive pot use does do is kill ambition. It's not surprising the new study discovered pot use affects the part of the brain dealing with motivation.
Obviously the legalization of marijuana supporters want to promote it's use. Some people even claim pot cures cancer. That is false. Pot alleviates the pain of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy cures cancer. However, I personally know someone who has numerous health problems and after getting a prescription for medical marijuana, his symptoms have significantly improved.
I totally agree that mandatory minimum sentences for growing or possessing pot is stupid. It's a waste of tax dollars and prevents us from dealing with violent crime. Yet we do need to be honest about the harmful effects of pot because there are some. Alcohol abuse is likely more damaging than pot abuse but that doesn't mean pot abuse is good. Driving stoned or going to work or school stoned is not a very intelligent thing to do.

Another twilight zone moment. Front page of today's Vancouver Province is a dramatic story about a female transit cop named Tabatha Swadron who was disciplined for posting "racy" photos of herself. However, when you look at the pictures, it's just her in a bikini. The Vancouver Province quoted a police spokesperson as stating “We were aware that she was involved in fitness activities and bodybuilding, but were not aware of the other ... activities.”
I'm not sure what these other activities include but this is nothing compared to Jim Brown. Tabatha was posting pictures of herself in bikini competitions. Jim Brown was posting pictures of himself naked wearing nothing but RCMP boots while holding a knife cutting off the lingerie of a female model. Pictures of Jim Brown naked are a crime all in itself. That guy is nasty. Yet fantasizing about raping someone at knife point isn't healthy. Especially for a cop.
The Province claims there is one "dominatrix" picture of Tabatha partially masked swinging and biting on a black leather whip in a tight cat-woman suit. Hardly sounds like it's worth all that drama to me. Once again it's nothing compared to what Jim Brown did and he most certainly wasn't in a bikini competition. He was posting BDSM pictures on a BDSM site looking for sexual partners who are into BDSM. I have a problem with portraying Tabatha as a dominatrix in some bizarre attempt to minimize the sexual harassment she faced at work.
There is a huge amount of sexual harassment within the RCMP and various other police departments in Canada. It is a huge ongoing problem. That's why there's a class action lawsuit before the courts. In Tabatha's case there was alleged to have been a lot of sexual banter from male coworkers that she was subjected to and on one occasion a male officer allegedly pulled Tabatha’s head toward his crotch. Tabatha didn’t complain, but a witness did. That became a sexual harassment complaint.
So here we have sexual harassment 101. If someone makes a sexual joke and the person they're telling it to isn't offended but someone else who hears it is, that's still sexual harassment. That is the law. That's what every other employer in Canada explains to their employees to fulfill their legal obligations to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace. That is why this ongoing culture of sexual harassment within the police department is so archaic and bizarre. Tabatha participating in a bikini competition does not justify sexual harassment at work.
Speaking of bizarre, how many high ranking Surrey RCMP officers with aspiring political careers have done the dance of the flaming asshole naked in front of female coworkers? What heterosexual male would want to watch another man do that? At least they gave it the appropriate name.
The fact that Don Ray is still employed with the RCMP is proof the RCMP do not take their legal obligation to eliminate sexual harassment from the workplace seriously. The fact that he's in the BC Head office in the Surrey Green Timbers building with a bar on site paid for with tax dollars adds insult to injury. The fact that Stephen Harper continues to slander and harass whistle blowers is evidence he does not take his legal obligation to remove sexual harassment from the RCMP seriously either. It's called criminal negligence. Is there a breathalyzer outside the RCMP bar in Green Timbers for their drive home? Please advise.

There are a few stories to catch up on but I wanted to pause and linger on something positive for a while first before rehashing more conflict. We've had some interesting discussions about the recent conflict in the Ukraine. Well things got complicated. Just to recap, Russia and the EU have both been trying to win over the Ukraine to join them. Russia handed over a sum of money and protesters rallied to oppose the idea of joining with Russia. Live ammunition was used on the protesters and the elected president who was pro Russia went into exile.
Putin took Crimea which is a pro Russia peninsula of the Ukraine and committed not to take any more land by force. At the time I thought that was a fair compromise. Part of the Ukraine clearly does not want to join Russia but Crimea did. Problem solved. So we had hoped. Yet it has become a bit more complicated than that.
Other areas in the Ukraine which were pro Russia started having demonstrations of their own in favor of joining with Russia and an internal conflict has broken out. Now Putin is threatening to cut off the Gas. If you look at the map the entire eastern region of the Ukraine is pro Russia. They voted for the pro Russian president.
After Russia took Crimea, Yulia Tymoshenko, the presidential candidate that lost the last election said she is going to run again. Ironically enough the elected president in exile said that Russia made a mistake taking Crimea and should give it back. No doubt he was referring to his own political future. With Crimea in the polls there was enough pro Russian supporters in the Ukraine to elect him. Without Crimea, his opponent might have a chance at getting elected.
The whole point is whoever is in charge of the Ukraine after the president went into exile is not a democratically elected president. It was a coup which makes the prospects of a peaceful solution to the conflict somewhat problematic. Instead of supporting coups we need to support the democratic process. Perhaps a legitimate referendum with the option of annexing the eastern region in blue. The west of the Ukraine does not want to join Russia but should be governed by an elected leader. The EU bankers are not to be trusted. They caused the Greek financial crisis. Nevertheless, hopefully the matter will be decided at the polls in the coming election.
Fake Pamphlet requires Jews to register
Now we cross over into the absurd. Media reports claim three masked men were handing out fliers telling Jewish citizens of Eastern Ukraine to register with the pro Russian forces. The pro Russian forces deny the requirement and claim the flyer is likely the work of provectuers. No kidding. The claim doesn't make sense at all. Everyone knows there is a huge popularity struggle going along with the tensions in the Ukraine. We also know there is a huge propaganda campaign against the pro Russian forces making statements that are simply not true. It is clear that Western Ukraine does not want to join Russia but Eastern Ukraine does.
This fake request simply doesn't make sense. Nowhere in Russia are Jews currently required to register. Why on earth would the pro Russian forces in Eastern Ukraine make that request knowing the world would oppose it passionately? The answer is they wouldn't. Even if that was their real goal, they wouldn't be handing out pamphlets making the request at this crucial time. They would wait until after they had secured their independence and after the dust had settled. Even if that was their true goal, they would not be handing out pamphlets saying so now. It doesn't make sense and is not believable. What is believable is that it is the work of provectuers. The suspects are obvious.
If the FBI paid James Cromitie $250,000 and a new BMW to plant bombs at Jewish targets in New York, "they" would certainly pay someone to hand out fake flyers in Eastern Ukraine. If it wasn't for the Russians, the USS Liberty would have been sunk as ordered by President Johnson.
Big Brother is not always right but they're not always wrong either. Stalin and Lenin were both evil. Yet so was Hitler and we don't still hate on Germany now that Hitler is gone. That war is over. Now the war continues and the greatest threat to our civil liberty is the enemy from within.

In contrast with Finian's Inferno let's take a peak at Finian's Paradise. Yesterday I climbed the Stairway to Heaven on Seymour. This is probably one of my favorite places in Vancouver. The last stretch on the way to First Peak. From the other direction it looks like sand dunes made of snow.
I made it up to Second peak
and stayed for the sunset.
Things are very hit and miss on the coastal mountains. I've been at First peak at times when there was zero visibiity and a cold blowing wind that made me bundle up and say this is as far as I'm going today. Other days when the visibility is good, the view is awesome.
Especially the city lights from the mountaintop at night. I remember seeing them for the first time from Hollyburn Ridge. It was breath taking. It was a clear night and the moon cast a shadow. Winds were relatively calm and the silence was humbling. This is my quiet place.

Here it is. The Hells Angels murder women and exploit the homeless part two. But first, let me set the stage which will define my beef. Just before Saint Paddy's Day I saw a video on youtube of Loreena McKennitt explaining what inspired her to write the song Dante's Prayer.
She said she was taking the train across Siberia and was reading Dante's Inferno. It's a literary classic about Dante's journey through hell. She said reading that book while she saw all the suffering and struggling around her inspired her to write the song and change it to Dante's Prayer. It's very moving. I picked up a copy of the book and thought I should make a post about Finian's Inferno. My journey through hell and the things I saw in my travels.
I've already talked about three images of murder that I can't get out of my mind. The expression on Britney Irvings face when she was found dead after being shot in the back by someone she loved, trusted and cared about. Janice Shore's caved in skull when I saw her in the hospital and the look of grief and loss in Eileen Mohan's eyes after her son ws unjustly murdered in the Surrey Six. Three powerful images that resonate in my memory.
That's what I want to talk about in my journey through hell. The predatory drug dealers that exploit the homeless. In that ridiculous troll rant, someone claiming to be Bryce was bragging about the treats they sell and claim they don't exploit the homeless living under a bridge. Yet that is indeed exactly what they do. When they bring that much cocaine into the country to be sold here as crack, they are responsible for all the violent misery that brings. They actually profit from it. From crack addicts being tortured in the basements of Prince George crack houses to the violent collection methods of the predatory drug dealers in East Vancouver and Whalley outside the Front Room it's all the same. It's Blood money.
The same goes for the dirty politicians that accept campaign contributions from the dirty developers and Casinos that launder drug money. However, the Hells Angels is a criminal organization. Manitoba has already deemed them as such and Saskatchewan is considering following suit to curb their violent monopoly on the drug trade.
When you look at the three rings: Robert Shannon and Jody York, the Randy and Trevor Jones indictment and the Larry Amero charges in Montreal we see three huge cross border drug trafficking rings where the Hells Angels were bringing massive amounts of BC Bud across the border and bringing back massive amounts of cocaine into Canada to be sold here as crack. That's not even counting the crystal meth like Kerry Ryan Renaud was cooking for John Punko and the Vancouver Hells Angels in Surrey.
Last year the police busted 16 grow ops in Kelowna alone all tied to the Hells Angels. 7 of them were licensed medicinal grow ops. That's a lot. I don't care if the Hells Angels run a few grows. I care when the Hell Angels take over grows and say no one can grow except us and start taxing every other grow under the sun. That is messed up. It is pure greed. I also care about the Hells Angels trading all that BC Bud for cocaine in the States and bringing it back here as crack. That destroys lives and communities. Sure there's more money in that trade but it's just not worth it. Again it all boils down to greed.
Another example of how the Hells Angels exploited the homeless in East Vancouver is when they sold the Drake hotel to the city of Vancouver. The city bought the hotel and turned it into social housing which was a good thing. The bad part was the fact that they paid the Hells Angels $2 million more than it was worth. That was tax dollars ear marked for social housing right into the Hells Angels pocket. No doubt they call it good business. I call it exploiting the homeless.
Don't tell me the Hells Angels don't have anything to do with the violent debt collection that goes on in East Vancouver or Prince George. Members of the Crew cut off fingers for drug debts on behalf of the Hells Angels in Prince George. Anthony Terezakis sold drugs for the Hells Angels in East Vancouver. Tony ran the drugs in the Cobalt and the American Hotel. Those are cheap hotels the homeless stay in when they can get a place indoors. Tony filmed himself beating the life out of drug addicts who owed him money. The Hells Angels are directly involved in the brutal violence in Whalley and East Vancouver. That is what I see in my journey through hell but that is not all.
Remember the Pickton Farm? There is a lot more to that story that Wally Oppal refused to be admitted in the not very public inquiry. There's a similar case in Australia involving the Hells Angels torturing someone on a Pig Farm there. Another similar case in Oakland. All frighteningly similar to the Surrey House of Horrors.
So the troll pretending to be Bryce made two totally false statements. He said the Hells Angels don't kill women and don't exploit the homeless living under a bridge when clearly they do. I personally don't believe that was Bryce because Bryce wouldn't publicly brag about their drug trafficking. He would deny they do it like Ricky C always does and claim they just ride motorcycles. Even though Bryce's own son is in jail for drug trafficking.
However, I do take great offense to the troll pretending to be Bryce claiming that I wear a white hood and burn crosses on people's lawns. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have spent a year and a half living in African American and Caribbean communities. I used to rock the A train up to 155th Street in Harlem, NYC. I lived behind the Front Line in Brixton and lived in Lakeshore village in south Seattle. I love a good curry mutton with some rice and peas and a Guinness stout.
Ricky C on the other hand was posing with David Black holding a Nazi flag with a swastika on it. Mom Boucher and Salvatore Cazzetta along with Biff Hamel were part of a White supremacist biker club called the SS before they all became Hells Angels. The Whiteboy posse is a puppet club that sells drugs for the Edmonton Hells Angels. They use Nazi logos and are white supremacists. The Hells Angels are the ones affiliated with the Klan not me. I despise the Klan.
Finian's prayer isn't that you remember him. Finian's prayer is that you remember all that have suffered like Janice Shore, Bob Roth and Ashley Machiskinic. Forget Finian, Remember them.
Christ said Blessed are those that mourn for they shall be comforted. He also said Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God. Mother Teresa had a pure heart. She could see the face of God in those who suffer. Can we? My prayer is that we all can see the face of God in those who suffer and think about how our actions affect them and the society we want to live in.
Kelowna's most wanted? Schrader? You've got to be kidding. Surely there are a lot more serious criminals out there that the police should be looking for like whoever put Joey up to murdering Britney. I know I've made fun of Matt in the past but I said I'd give him a chance and I meant it. I heard he got a real job. Breach of recognizance is pretty open ended. That could be something as simple as missing a court date for driving while his licenses was suspended. If he has a job he has to get to work. Give the guy a break. Some people do need a fresh start in life. There are a lot more serious criminals out there that we should be focusing on.
The guy never threatened my daughter. He and I were just smack talking a while back. I know the police were keen on nailing him back then. I wish they were as keen on nailing the real criminals instead of kicking the cat. The guy is harmless. Look in his eyes. He's just an ordinary guy. The elephant ears drive me crazy but a girl I used to date has a son with the same thing. They drive me crazy but her son is actually a nice guy. The Hells Angels are a much more serious concern than someone who used to be a low level dealer and is sincerely trying to make a go of it.
Update: Turns out that's exactly what it is. He missed an appointment with his PO after his driving while prohibited charge. It wasn't even for missing a court date and had nothing to do with drugs. Sometimes we really do need to give people a chance.
The Battle Axe Barbies however, who worship the deranged Shane Bunting, they're still idiots. Shane and his social misfit followers don't know a thing about rap music. I was introduced into rap back in Harlem when LL Cool J was making his debut. He's still around. LL, Tupac, Fat Joe, the Game, A Tribe Called Quest, TI, Ja Rule those are rappers. Shane Bunting is just an idiot that tries to put his white nerdy fantasies about kidnapping, torturing and murdering women to music. Eminem broke into the market and so did Malkemore. Not Shane and his misfit Barbies.
A few weeks ago I saw an episode of Mystery Dinners with a friend. I don't watch much TV but this episode was somewhat profound. The owner of a restaurant was concerned one of their employees was stealing from them so they had the show come in and plant secret cameras to find out who it was. The owner suspected an employee who was a ex con.
They had someone come in posing as a customer be really rude to him then leave their wallet on the table before they left. They wanted to see what he would do with the wallet. He picked it up and put it in the lost and found. Then the secret camera saw another employee go into the wallet and take the money out of it while it was sitting in the lost and found.
When the customer came back for their wallet they asked where the money is that was inside it and the employee that stole it threw the ex con under the bus and said it must have been him. He's an ex con. Fortunately the hidden cameras saw other wise and saw how the young girl had been stealing from the company on various occasions. Sad but enlightening. Sad how a young girl would blame someone else for her actions but enlightening that an ex con proved to be honest. People can change and we do need to give them a chance if they really have changed.

We interrupt this two part series with a not so important news bulletin. The Edmonton Journal is reporting that Peter Goodsell, who police claim is a member of the Hells Angels puppet club Kaos Krew was arrested after a traffic stop in Spruce Grove that netted marijuana, cocaine, cash and a large knife. It was only three ounces of marijuana and about 35-40 grams of cocaine but the cocaine was divided into 30 bags for reselling which would imply trafficking.

This is going to be a two part post. Looks like I took the bait again. Someone pretending to be Bryce posted on another forum and I actually thought for a second it really was Bryce. Actually I think Bryce is a lot smarter than that. Bloody hell I think Ricky C is smarter than that and I think Ricky C is a complete idiot. It's hard not to respect Bryce. Yet it's impossible to respect Ricky C. That Devil Butler nonsense is bizarre.
Someone claiming to be Bryce was metaphorically bragging about the drugs they sell and claim they don't murder women or profit from the homeless. Both statements are clearly false. The selective censorship on that forum is very suspicious. So I'll itemize what I said that wasn't posted.
The claim that the Hells Angels don't kill women is false. Case in point Margo Compton and Britney Irving. Britney they can argue but Joey Verma was a Hells Angels associate. In the trial one witness testified that Joey told him he had no choice (about killing Britney) and would kill his whole family if he didn’t take the fall for him. Another Hells Angel associate threatening someones family again. After speaking with his Lawyer Joey told the witness they were off the hook as he was going to have to take the heat himself.
The thing is Joey was a much higher level drug dealer than I thought. Even the judge was surprised at the dollar value of his drug transactions which continued after his incarceration. Which means whoever he was selling drugs for, were OK with his murder of Britney until he was actually convicted. Then they turned on him. Big surprise.
Two more women the Hells Angels killed which they can't deny are Michele Uyeyama and Lisa Chamberlain. Michele Uyeyama was Eugene Uyeyama's new wife. Eugene was a police informant that cause a large drug bust tied to Hells Angels associates selling crack in east Vancouver September 1995. Christmas 1995 they killed the informant and his innocent wife. They even brought Christmas gifts from "the Boys". Cans of gasoline to burn the house down after they murdered the informant and his wife.
Ernie Ozolins on the other hand was no informant. He was a full patch member they kicked out and murdered so someone else could take over the business and steal his land from his family. They murdered his girlfriend Lisa Chamberlain along with him for no reason.
So Margo Compton, Michele Uyeyama and Lisa Chamberlain are three women the Hells Angels murdered that they cannot deny. They will deny Britney Irving but I have good reason to add her to the list along with Janice Shore and Ashley Machiskinic. People still ask me why I do this web site and blog and why I feel so passionate about it. If you can't understand by now, I can't explain it. It is what it is. As Martin Luther King once said, no lie can live forever.
As one blog reader pointed out Nancy Christensen in Nova Scotia is yet another. Jeff Lynds admitted to killing Randy Mersereau for the Hells Angels. Randy had left the Hells Angels and continued drug trafficking when they forbade him to as a rival so they killed him as well as his brother and his brother's wife. Jeff testified that Les Greenwood did the hit on Kirk and Nancy for the Hells Angels and that the Hells Angels provided the guns for that murder as well.
In Quebec it was revealed in court that the primary business of the Hells Angels in Quebec during their drug turf war with the Rock Machine was drug trafficking. Every murder was approved by a committee. They contributed 10% of their drug profits into a fund to murder rival drug dealers.
Locally Nicole Alemy is another woman we can add to the list. She was shot dead with her toddler in the car during the war between the UN and the Bacon brothers. Nicole was murdered after Ralph Baldini in follow up to the Surrey Six. It was all about killing rival drug dealers. Yet it is clear that the Hells Angels were supporting and supplying the Bacon brothers through Larry Amero at the time. Larry wasn't acting on his own he was on official club business. That's why they put him in charge of two drug trafficking rings in Montreal after he was shot in Kelowna.
Another blog reader sent in the name of Mary Ann Campbell from New York to add to the list. The New York Times reported that March 1978, the chapter president, Vincent (Big Vinnie) Girolamo was charged with throwing his girlfriend, Mary Ann Campbell, from the roof of the building to her death on the pavement below. He died while he was on bail before the case went to trial.
Which reminds me of Cynthia Garcia. Kevin J. Augustiniak, one of several members of the Hells Angels initially charged in Cynthia Garcia's death pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. Paul Eischeid was arrested in Argentina awaiting extradition back to Arizona where he'll face a first-degree murder charge. Garcia was severally beaten, stabbed 27 times, partially decapitated, stuffed in a trunk and dumped in the desert. Kevin received a 23 year sentence.

Castanet is reporting that a 42-year-old Kelowna man has been sentenced to four years in prison after he was found in possession of illegal firearms and ammunition. RCMP consider Vincent Lewis Timpany to be a long-time gang associate and allied with the Independent Soldiers. Police seized a 9mm Glock, a .38 calibre Smith and Wesson, a 12 gauge shotgun and three over-capacity magazines. At the time of his arrest he was already prohibited from possessing any guns or ammunition. Let's not forget who the Independent Soldiers work for. Global picked up on the story.
Sunday, April 6, 2014
Global and CTV are both reporting that Benoit Roberge, an ex-Montreal police officer has been handed an eight-year prison term for selling sensitive information to the Hells Angels. No word on any charges against a second officer Roberge said worked with him or his claims that he was not going down alone which would imply the problem was bigger than just one person.
No word on why René Charlebois mysteriously committed suicide after escaping prison in Quebec. He was the Hells Angel that blew the whistle on Benoit Roberge. After his "suicide" several incriminating video tapes were found. At least Quebec is dealing with the problem with corruption investigations not like the EPS or us here in BC. Everything here is business as usual. No investigation means no corruption so they claim.
