Relying on Twitter alone was a bad call, still trying to understand the logic behind that one. Not everyone is monitoring social media regularly, and especially not at midnight, when it sounds like this guy started on his rampage.

Nick Beaton said that shortly before his wife died, the couple had heard about the rampage happening several kilometres away in Portapique, N.S.

“Me and Kristen laid in bed the night before and watched him in Portapique, reigning terror on people,” he said. “We woke up (Sunday) morning and we just assumed it was over.”

That morning, Kristen was on her way to the home of “one of her favourite clients,” Beaton said. “If I had known he was on the loose, I would have not let my wife leave the house that day.”

How the hell does this happen? How was this guy allowed to just drive around killing people for hours on end? What was going on???

HALIFAX — The RCMP says a weekend shooting rampage in Nova Scotia has now claimed the lives of 23 victims.

Police continue to investigate murders committed at 16 crime scenes Saturday night and Sunday morning over a swath of northern and central Nova Scotia.

Queen Elizabeth II is sending her condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the victims of Nova Scotia’s mass shooting.


“Prince Philip and I have been deeply saddened by the appalling events in Nova Scotia,” the statement from the Royal Family reads.
...
“I … pay tribute to the bravery and sacrifice of the officers from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and other police services who selflessly responded to these devastating attacks, and to the emergency services who are supporting those who have been injured and affected.”


I have zero use nor any so called allegiance to a british monarchy that went out of style in like 1960 era
second off they(police etc) were hired and agreed to selflessly respond in the line of duty that,s what they signed up and are paid to do ;; terrible situation she got killed for sure but so did roughly 22 other equally important humans

With tragedies like this RARE in Canada I have to wonder if some "nutcase" in the U.S.A. is looking at this and thinking "how can I out do this guy"............"I know, dress up like a cop and get the peoples trust........then easy pickens". Looking at these "Trump supporters" protesting about their freedoms according to their Constitution and carrying their AR-15's (not assault rifles) you have to wonder if all it would take is a "dog-whistle" from their leader Trump. He is trying hard to set them off and when it does happen he will blame absolutely everyone around him including the shooter in Canada.

I clicked on for four seconds. I can't even.

I was thinking, even if the RCMP put out an alert, who would think to be looking for what looks like a police car? :135:

Here are his victims. How did he get a RCMP uniform? Globe says they are now looking into if he had help with the murders.

Even if BB guns and perhaps even rocks were completely banned, this had so much hate and fore planning that he would have come up with multiple types of military heavy assault rifles if he wanted anyway regardless of the black market cost. Anyone can get anything with enough will and enough money.

At the end of the day, someone needs to be fired over this. No way a murdering psycho should be allowed to just drive around randomly killing people for over 12 hours with no warnings being given.

Imagine if a guy is killing people in Penticton on a Saturday night, and burning down houses. And he's still at large. Wouldn't you want to know this before you venture out on Sunday morning, even if you live in Kelowna or Vernon or Osoyoos? It makes no freaking sense.

I saw one report of a woman who claims that she was just about to head out on Sunday morning, and she received a text from her son saying to the effect "The guy is at the end of your driveway, don't go out there". How did the son know this? And if he knew it, and others knew that this guy was only feet from their houses, where were the cops???? What were they doing???

On some other post I read that he was prohibited from owning firearms. Can’t know for sure as I haven’t heard anything from RCMP. They are also tight lipped on type of weapon(s) used. Be very simple for police to release that info yet they don’t. Hmmm...

If that’s the case Canada’s firearms laws worked and shooter was in possession of illegally owned firearm(s).
No amount of “Gun Reform” could have prevented this massacre.
Perhaps mental health treatment could have?

No matter what, this jackass took lives and destroyed families, true evil.
I really like your post, just can’t find the button. I’m part of the fringe minority.
Defund the CBC? You bet, they are part of the spreading hate machine, protecting their captain!
