WTF... I sure hope there's more to the story... because that's crazy if the Lexus driver just wanted to go get the insurance details of the Explorer...

It was a case of road rage. The guy that died was a friends, best friends cousins husband. The guy was recently marrried and had been in canada for only a month. Its a completely senseless and immoral act that someone has commited.

Sorry for spelling mistakes, on tthe phone typing quick as I am at work

They were both headed north, that part of 128th is 2 lines northbound and southbound with a divider in between.

wow... horrible

i thought it may have turned out to be road rage since the police didn't issue the usual comments of "known to police" etc


simply despicable... wow

I travel that road 3-4 times a day... I'm absolutely disgusted that something like this could happen.

Fuck, I drive there all the time.

Holy shit, sounds like something that happens in Brazil from time to time. And what pisses me off the most is that the bullshit justice here in Canada will only give this guy like 10 years in jail, if he is caught. I hope he's not a citizen, so we can throw his ass on a plane or something.

We *need* tougher laws in Canada for illegal possession of firearms. Bet that he didn't have a permit.

Yah... I bet the criminals would just be quivering if that happened. Meanwhile, us regular, law-abiding citizens have to do epic battle with red tape to get a frickin' .22 from Crappy Tire.

I am not anti-gun. I am, however, in favor of HARSH penalties for people caught without a permit/with an unregistered weapon. Are you against that? Do you think it should be the current system where people get probation for firearms offenses? Because, seriously, someone caught with an illegal gun will give two shits about probation.

Agreed.
The problem is, if you start putting the criminals in jail, you'll soon run out of room. So you need new jails to be built, which aren't cheap. Next thing you know, your political opponents are calling you "wasteful". Where the hell are the Liberals going to put the criminals?

Oh yeah, the Liberals let them walk because criminals are victims in the Liberal view.

So I heard the victim in the Surrey shooting was running away from someone and it had to do with drugs/money.

Damn. Small world. Found out the victim was a good friend of mine in elementary school I moved at the end of grade 7 so we never stayed in touch. He went to Matheson after.
