Your chances of dying in a car accident are greater then getting hit by a stray bullet..

More gun violence in Metro Vancouver
No one believed to be hurt in latest incident

John Streit/The Province Newspaper VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) | Wednesday, March 18th, 2009 9:30 pm VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - Just after 7 p.m.Wednesday, Vancouver police responded to several 911 calls of shots fired in Yaletown.

Inspector Eric Grummisch says police spoke to witnesses and found a number of shell casings in the area. So far, nothing was found to have been hit.

Witnesses also told police the incident may have involved a dark SUV and a grey pick-up truck.

In the meantime, two people are in hospital after a double stabbing in Surrey. It reportedly happened near Guildford Mall, at 100th Avenue and 149th Street. RCMP told The Province Newspaper there was a group of young people in the area before a fight broke out. Conditions of the victims have not been released.

Scum as in, Ed Hardy wearing gangsters?


There are no arrests, ever, because the cops are paid off. At this point, I think we can be sure of it.


6 billion+ dollar industry and no cops paid off? Extremely unlikely. Just how far up the corruption goes is anyone's guess.

Yup, that's the scum i'm talking about but I've noticed that most of them are ditching the Ed Hardy type t-shirts and moving up to dress shirts with dragons, skulls and other mythological designs.

SURREY (NEWS1130) - R.C.M.P. are on the scene of a fatal shooting in Surrey at this hour. It’s believed one person was fatally shot earlier this morning in Hi-Knoll Park.

Witnesses report seeing a body lying beside a silver or tan-coloured van in the parking lot of the park.

Mounties have 50th Ave. (Colebrook Rd) shut down between 192 Ave. and 200th St. while they investigate.

UPDATE: Langley man shot to death in parking lot at Surrey-Langley border
Police say it appears to be a targeted shooting
Lyle Fisher SURREY/LANGLEY (NEWS1130) 2009-03-19 15:02

Body lies under tarp beside van in Surrey (Photo courtesy Cory Burke) SURREY/LANGLEY (NEWS1130) - RCMP and the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) are now confirming that a body found this morning at Hi-Knoll Park at the Surrey-Langley border was a shooting victim. So far police will only say a 33 year old man from Langley is the victim, and the shooting 'has the signature of being targeted'.

People living in the area reported hearing shots around 3:30 a.m., and a passer-by found a body around 6 a.m. in the parking lot of the park at 50th Ave. (Colebrook Rd) near 196th Street. When police arrived they found the body of a man lying next to a beige mini-van.

IHIT says so far, they have not made any conclusive links to drugs, gangs or organized crime, and the victim is not known to police. Investigators are attempting to locate next of kin to advise them of the death.

Police will be conducting a canvass of people in the neighbourhood, and the E Division Dive Team will be conducting a search of the marsh area near the crime scene.

RCMP have (Colebrook Rd) shut down between 192 Ave. and 196 St. while they investigate.

Alleged gangster Dennis Karbovanec moves out of Port Moody


ID's from left to right: Michael Jackman, Cody Haevischer, Matthew Campbell (partly hidden) James Kyle Bacon, Kevin LeClair, Jonathan Bacon, and Dennis Karbovanec.


A man linked to the Red Scorpions who has been followed by Port Moody police for more than a month to ensure public safety has moved out of the community.


Mayor Joe Trasolini confirmed in an interview that Dennis Karbovanec moved away from Port Moody Wednesday and notified the police department as required by his bail conditions on a series of fraud charges.


Karbovanec's associate Jonathan Bacon is still living in Port Moody, but also expected to move shortly.


"I am relieved and the residents of Port Moody are very relieved," Trasolini said of Karbovanec's departure. "The community of Port Moody is safe and I said from the beginning that these individuals are not welcome here."


He said he has not been told where Karbovanec has moved.


Last month, the mayor and police officials publicly warned that Karbovanec was living in their community and anyone around him could be at risk because he had been targeted by rivals.


Trasolini said Thursday that his residents have been very patient and vigilant during the difficult two months since Karbovanec came to town.


"I really want to acknowledge the residents," he said.


The close associate of the Bacon brothers was shot Dec. 31, but survived and refused to cooperate with police.


Karbovanec is out on bail in the fraud case as well as a series of gun charges laid after Abbotsford police stopped him in October and allegedly found a loaded handgun with silencer in a secret compartment in his vehicle.


He was wearing body armour.


The two younger Bacon brothers - Jarrod and Jamie - are also out on bail and living at their parents' Abbotsford home.


All four men have been tailed by marked and unmarked police vehicles for two months because of an escalation in Metro Vancouver's gang war that has led to several of their associates being targeted.


Associate Kevin LeClair was gunned down Feb. 6 in Langley and another close friend, Tyler Willock, was shot at Feb. 16 in Surrey and later beaten with a sledge hammer. He remains in hospital.


The Bacons and their Red Scorpion associates have been targeted by the UN gang since at least last spring when police issued the first public warning to steer clear of the gangsters in public settings.

This one sounded like they just needed shooting practice and picked him.

For 15 years you must of been hiding under a rock, let me guess... you play wow? xD I am not worried about targeted shootings, I am worried about my family. So I do what I have to do. If you cannot respect that then I have nothing else to say to you.

You people amaze me sometimes.

Chilliwack RCMP are investigating an apparent drive-by shooting at Earl's Restaurant at the Cottonwood Mall overnight.

Neighbours reported hearing shots fired around 4 a.m.

Employees arrived at 7 a.m. to find the restaurant's front door had been shot at several times.

Mounties say it's too early to tell if the restaurant was deliberately targeted.

Anyone with information is asked to police.


At least eight bullets were fired into the front entrance of Earl's sometime Friday morning and a warning to Bar Watch members scrawled on to a back wall of the restaurant.

"Bar Watch members will die, 1 down, 1 2 go," the spray painted message read.

Raffaele Aiello, general manager at Earl's, has not yet commented on the incident.

Other members of Bar Watch could not be reached at this time.

This has been going on now for, how long?



All this tough talk coming from politicians and cops has resulted in what, 0 arrests?


Oh wait, they arrested a couple guys for a few hours. Haha.


Fucking pathetic. So many cops are paid off and these guys walk around like they own the place.
