    Here in NL under the PC's, Mental Health, Health, Justice and Education keep's getting cut, and the money poured into Muskrat Fall's. And thanks to the Information-censorship-supporting Bill-29, we are being withheld basic knowledge of what is going on in the shadows and behind the scenes of the Provincial Government. No wonder crime is out of control here: when basic pillars of civilization like library's, Healthcare, Justice and Education are cut, and massage parlors thrive, something is going wrong. I think the PC's with their police escorts tending on them, are too far removed from the real eroding of society here.

    I predict that once hoodlums here keep slowly losing any remaining pockets of fear of the law, and get a little more ambitious in their crimes, gun violence in Nfld. could eventually make Detroit look tame. A culture of savagery, economic desperation, lack of social integration, and lots of easy money that's just out of reach.....that's quite a formula.

    “Right now it’s still too early to tell what the full extent of the motivation behind this incident was,” Const. Murphy said Wednesday afternoon. ----------------------------Who is Const. Murphy? Sorry to nitpick what was, I'm sure, a hastily-written article, with a lot of "cut and paste" from the day's previous other articles going on, but the quote above is attributed to a certain "Const. Murphy". However, this is the first time in the article the name is mentioned; the reader has no idea who Const. Murphy is before this. She should be formally introduced- there should be some mention of her previously in the article, otherwise it should read something like "RNC spokesperson Const. Talia Murphy said...". You're welcome ;-)

    Several years ago while I was living in Halifax, violent crimes; be it an armed robbery or a confrontation between individuals, where the weapon of choice was a firearm, were a frequent occurance. At the time, I remember reflecting that it would not be long before firearms would be used during the commission of violent crimes here in this Province. The recent tragic and senseless deaths of three individuals serves as evidence that my fears have been realized.

    It really bewilders me to hear people complaining about how "it's not safe here anymore". It's ridiculous. As wrenching, needless and tragic as this was, one completely aberrant event does not make for an epidemic. Newfoundland is still a safe place to live, no need for paranoia.
