Man charged after rapper shot dead in Ottawa



CBC is reporting that "An 18-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of an Ottawa hip-hop artist who was shot and killed Friday night in the ByWard Market. Donald Musselman appeared in court via video from the Ottawa police station Sunday morning. He is charged in the death of 42-year-old Markland Campbell, also known by the stage name Jahiant Jahh." That is messed up. Ya'll need some time with Dr Phil.

The brother was a Rastaman. Why the hell would you have beef with him? Everybody likes Rasta. Bob Marley was a Rasta for God's sake. Markland was a positive and talented musician. The kid who shot him is a nutbar.

The Ottawa Citizen is reporting that "Wiens said Campbell, a 41-year-old father, was shot in the chest and died in surgery. He had left work at the Shaw Centre to rush to his daughter’s aid in the ByWard Market, Wiens said. “He was rushing to defend his 18-year-old daughter’s dignity after she called to say she was being assaulted by a couple of men,” Wiens said.

  1. Fucked up but why call Dad instead of the cops? Bad decision.

    1. Why call Dad and not the cops? Do you really have to ask that question? Dad was just around the corner.

    2. 18 yr olds are still children and frequently their first thought is of their parents, when they're in trouble. If her Father was close at hand, he would arrive sooner than the police.

      If you are not white and young, calling the police doesn't always solve the problem, it makes it worse, because they will consider you the problem.

  2. Ah OK, I get the geographic angle. I don't know Toronto unless we're counting the airport. And maybe at that point she didn't think it was that serious. Problem is, these days it's always that serious.

    When dealing with problem children, you still call what passes for the pro's. That's what they get paid for, and that's what you pay your taxes for. I think we can agree this would have worked out better that way.

    1. You or I would have done the exact same thing in a heartbeat if it was our daughter. The police don' t have a great reputation these days.

    1. Of course you do but you're a social reject so that doesn't count. (That is Blaze)
