    The right person or persons in get shoot yet. I want one of those who think it’s unusual and inhumane to hang murderers to feel it. Cause it wasn’t inhumane or cruel when them took the victim’s life

      I don’t have a problem with hanging. I have a problem with the police beating a confession out of someone and years later when we find out it was the wrong person we can’t bring them back.

      @Antoinette, at least Dottin is not in charge now, it was him that locked up a guy for 2 rapes, and he didn’t match 1 comparison that the women described !

    Again , I am calling for the PM to go on CBC and address the nation on the gun/crime situation in BIM. This is not a JOKE. The top cop came out and spoke and was “snob” by one Union boss and the heavy roller of the 2 other ports . The AG must support the POLICE.
    May be the WOMEN’s GROUP who seems to have so much “clout” should address the PM, after all it is the WOMEN that losing their sons. The system has it like most FATHERS don’t seems to care.

    Whatever happened to the “why” factor of these stories? What were the circumstances under which the shootings took place. Did the Police decline to give details? If so why is that not part of the story?
