Just found out what happened in my area last night. According to CKNW:

"And at midnight Surrey Mounties responded to a drive-by shooting near 155th Street and 110th Avenue.
Someone fired a number of shots into a house police say is known to them."

Gangsters sure are trembling in fear over the new "get tough" laws...

Jason has a point with his strategy...

There was a time when so many drugs IE: Marijuana, Amphetamines, Opiates, LSD, were all legal, and during that time there were never gang wars like we have today.

Look no further than the prohibition of alcohol in the 20's and 30's. It led to major organized crime (Does the name Al Capone ring a bell). When they realized they couldn't beat the crime, they repealed the law.

Guess what happened after they repealed the law? Black Market profits went down the tube, the gangs lost their source of income.

5 shootings lastnight. 3 in surrey, 1 in burnaby and 1 in vancouver. 2 people dead and 3 injured


Two people are dead and three others are injured following five separate shootings throughout Metro Vancouver overnight.

It all began about 8:00 p.m. in Burnaby when RCMP responded to a call of shots fired in an apartment on Madison Ave, near Dawson St. When they arrived RCMP found a man and woman suffering from gunshot wounds. They were taken to hospital where the woman was pronounced dead, the man's injuries are not known.

A short time later RCMP in Surrey received a shots fired call in the area of 68th Ave and 130th St. A man showed up at a local hospital with gunshot wounds not long after. Mounties are unsure how he made it to hospital. Also in Surrey, RCMP are investigating another shooting that sent a man well known to them to hospital with unknown injuries. It's believed he was shot in the area of 180th Ave. and 32nd Ave. And a known 'crack shack' was shot at early this morning near 155th Ave. and 110th St.. No one was injured there.

Across the river, Vancouver police are investigating a deadly shooting that took place around 10:00 p.m. on East 3rd Ave. near Kaslo St. Police say after receiving a number of calls of shots fired, they found a man in his 20s slumped over the steering wheel of a car dead from gunshot wounds.

The names of the victims have not yet been released.

Guys, at least they're targeted. I wouldn't mind a extra week of 4 shootings per day to kill all these gangsters and scare the high school wangsters into thinking twice before joining a gang.

Let them kill each other and sooner or later they'll run out of bodies to shoot.

alot of these shootings are not gang related no matter what police say. they are drug related. most dealers dont belong to a gang. sometimes they do go to a gang for protection or they pick up their work from a gangster or sell their product to gangsters.

Fuck I wanted to make an effort to not post on RS today



1. Let them kill each other and sooner or later they'll run out of bodies to shoot.


2. kill all these gangsters and scare the high school wangsters into thinking twice before joining a gang.


Let us examine both of these statements:


1. The highly profitable drug trade allows the people in control to have flashy cars, tons of money, and the hottest bitches. Also, respect/fear at night clubs and other venues. Kill 1, and 2 more take their place.


2. Do you honestly think that people fear death and gunplay more than they are drawn to money, cars, women, and power?


Legalization is the only possible way to solve this, until then, drugs will continue to be traded and bullets will fly.

I think people fear having an average girlfriend, no money, living at home, and being a nobody more than they fear the consequences of being involved in the quick-cash drug trade that leads to money, women, and power.

Not downplaying what is going on here, but this is more like a war zone.

http://www.sfgate.com/maps/oaklandhomicides/

Oakland CA with 124 homicides in 2008 for a city of about 380K people. Far cry from the 1992 record of 175. Still feels way safer here for me coming from Northern California.

I think if someone isn't already a gangster and dosen't have that "hard" mentality, then yes all these shootings will scare them to become one. But if ur already down, then this shit don't scare u and ur making too much fucking money to get out of it now.

Exactly!


The majority of you guys are so in the dark. I don't mean to be insulting or condescending, ok, maybe a bit, but Billboa brings up something I wanted to mention earlier.


Why does the US Army talk about "$40,000 for college, enlist now!" and such?


Well, nobody just joins the Army and signs themself away to rough living for nothing, come on! Especially when being in the Army means more than likely the enemies of the US want you dead.


Think of gangs like a military unit, but instead of defending the constitution, they are defending their revenue sources. ( the drug trade )

You join the army and:

1. You gain new friends
2. You gain an honorable title (in some circles)
3. You make little money
4. You live a rough and non-luxurious lifestyle for awhile
5. Long time away from friends and family
6. You still need some qualifications to join and can be turned down for many reasons
7. You expect danger


Compare that to joining a gang:

1. You gain new friends
2. You can gain honorable titles (in some circles, especially with sleazy, yet hot, bitches)
3. You can make a LOT of money
4. You can live a luxurious lifestyle
5. No time away from friends and family
6. Qualifications would be knowing the right contacts and having the proper mentality, or being able to obey without question and be ruthless in your execution of your duties
7. You expect danger


As far as risk VS reward, doesn't it seem like being a gangster would be safer and pay better than a soldier in Iraq?


Now, it seems to me that grunts in Iraq getting shot at and roadside bombed daily for 4+ years have a raw deal compared to the average gangster in Vancouver. I mean, sure, the gangster has to deal with the occasional bullet flying at them, but as a soldier in Iraq you had to deal with bullets, bombs, suicide attacks, no family around, very little relaxation, and many other hardships.

Being a gangster would be FAR EASIER in comparison!

Suicides are at an all time high in the US Army at the moment, I would be willing to bet almost no gangsters kill themselves. They are probably living pretty damn good in B.C.


In fact, being a gangster is probably easier and pays better than being a cop, and judging by the few arrests being made, probably the law isn't even much of a concern. The Bacon brothers are famous, everyone knows they are gangsters and they're still out of jail!

I'm sure it's probably pretty funny to some gang members just how impotent the police really are. They can take down an angry stapler-armed polak at an airport, but if you have an up-armored BMW, caught with guns and well known ties to gangs you're walking free and sitting pretty!

And what if a civilian walks by and gets hit? Why not we have 0 gangs and 0 shootings?
