Looks like this guy walked on all charges...
we live in Canada. our court system is devoid of handing out stiff penal sentences. you seem somewhat surprised.

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - Vancouver Police are investigating Metro Vancouver's latest shooting. One man was shot several times around 10:30 p.m. Sunday on 12th Ave. near Fraser St.

One caller to News1130 says he heard up to 10 shots at the scene right out in front of his house on 12th Ave. Another caller says the victim came to his back door and tried to get inside.

Police are in the early stages of their investigation and say the victim is known to them.

Seems to me that I'd rather get caught with a loaded gun, than doing 50 kph over...

My friend told me there was a drive-by incident on E.22nd and Nootka a few days ago. I can't find any resources/news on it.. Anyone know if its true? Maybe he's just trying to trip me out because I live like 1min away from there.

KASH HEED (what a name) West Van Police Chief has "resigned" today less than 2yrs on the job

Mayors office will only say he resigned




they must have caught him doing something really bad like paying prostitutes with seized drugs like the former vancouver chief did (or so the rumor goes)

or maybe he couldn't take the stress of the job straining him with all these shootings. Must be a depressing job

man, we should all chip in to fund shooting practice for the gangs. If they can kill whoever they need to kill in 1 shot, the chance of an innocent bystander getting hurt is zero.

got any news links for that "rumour" about the old chief?

speculation is he resigned to get into politics. apparently he wants to change some laws

hahaa, QFT. Assuming they aren't using guns with excessive power that will penetrate through the target's body.

RCMP in Maple Ridge are investigating a shooting near the intersection of 216th and 132nd - a rural area locals says is known for marijuana grow ops and drug activity. It's believed a black SUV was shot up early thursday morning - no word yet if anyone was killed. One officer remains on the scene. RCMP say more information will be made public later this morning.

Police investigating suspicious death in Maple Ridge
John Ackermann MAPLE RIDGE (NEWS1130) | Friday, February 27th, 2009 7:45 am
Bookmark

MAPLE RIDGE (NEWS1130) - Mounties in Maple Ridge confirm a crash that happened yesterday afternoon is being treated as a suspicious death.

Police got a call around 1:30 about a car lying upside-down in a ditch near 132nd Avenue and 216th Street.
Neighbours reported hearing shots fired just before, and when police pulled out the vehicle, they found it filled with bullet holes.
The body of a man was also recovered and police plan to release more information later today.
Investigators say it's still to early to link this case to drugs or gangs.
