Just seems retarded to me that all these hits are always trying to make a statement. A statement would be to hose down upper lieutenants and other enforcers so "if you hang out with our enemy, fear for your life". But it seems sometimes "making a statement" is pointless. Aren't they driven by greed and trying to turn a profit that the opposition is cutting in on?

If anybody can help enlighten me to how these gangs are thinking, please do let me know.
the whole nature of gangs is symbolic. Take the russian or italian mob - they divide territory and for hte most part, don't bother each other, because they put business first. But everytime they do whack a guy, it's always the most outrageous, ridiculous shit, with public shootings and things stuffed in orafaces etc. And this i the mafia - not some schoolboy gang bullshit. So really, it's just the way it is, it's all about respect and showing what a bigger douche you are over the smaller douche.

Targeted gang shooting in Surrey
Happened less than 24 hours after Jonathan Bacon killed

Suspects sought after Bacon killed
SURREY (NEWS1130) - Less than 48 hours after Jonathan Bacon was gunned down in Kelowna, Mounties say a shooting last night in Surrey targeted a couple of men with well-known gang connections.

Around 10:40 p.m. RCMP were flooded with tons of 911 calls about shots being fired at 101 Avenue and 153rd Street.

The main concern for neighbours is whether this targeted shooting is connected to Bacon's death. "It's too early to tell and definitely investigators will be looking at that," says Inspector Randall Marquardt.

He adds two or three people and a car were shot at last night. The victims, who have gang affiliations, have minor injuries and are being interviewed by police.

"With what's going on in the Lower Mainland, I think all the police agencies are vigilant and we'll continue to do so as we move through the next few weeks," adds Marquardt.

No arrests have been made as the gunman ran off. Mounties are asking for any witnesses to give them a call.

'The Wolfpack'

New details about Sunday's shooting in Kelowna suggest some of the gang members in the targeted SUV in Kelowna were in the process of a super gang.

In "The Hangover" Zach Galifianakis' character forms a bond with his friends and dubs them "The Wolfpack."

Vancouver Sun crime reporter Kim Bolan says the loosely aligned gang of Red Scorpion Jonathan Bacon, Hells Angel Larry Amero and James Riach who was linked to the Independent Soldiers, took up the new name.

"These three organizations and these three individuals had formed a new criminal alliance. And all three of those guys were in the vehicle that was targeted."

Riach is believed to be the man who was injured in the shooting, but took off before Mounties arrived.

Heard 6 gun shots last night, but no sound of siren after that, I thought it was just some Surrey jack and shooting his gun all over the place.

anyone else NOT feel sorry for the gf that got paralyzed in the Kelowna shooting?

She may have not "deserved" it, but she obviously wasn't bright.

If there was more than one shooter, and the guy is literally spraying the car with bullets (trying to shoot more than one person in less time), why wouldn't you spray and pray? If he shot one person at a time while aiming, there is a greater chance that one of the other guys could have pulled out a gun as well.

If I had a 30 round mag and an SKS with the butt of the gun in my shoulder walking up to a vehicle people wouldn't last too long and Im 100% sure I'd be doing more damage than hip firing

With that said I've hunted all my life, but who knows what you're going to do with a gun in your hand outside a casino lol, your probably not thinking too clearly at that point

She was paralyzed? Either way, no. Hanging around with high profile gangsters is equivalent to those alligator trainers who put their heads inside of their mouths for show... Eventually your gonna get bitten,

I'm going to assume she was enjoying hanging out with gangsters. Sharing in the power and money that they have. Do you think there would be all this gangster shit going on if there weren't all these hot looking, gangster loving bitches around?

i feel that it's WRONG that she got shot in the sense that no human being deserves to be shot at unless they are at the moment putting someone in harm. Especially in a public place. And especially if they're not the gangster themselves.

With that said, I don't feel bad for her at all - it is entirely her fault as others have mentioned, and she is not an innocent bystander. She is an associate. Unfortunately after this incident or in 20 years, if she's not dead or addicted to drugs, she will realize that it was her own actions that put her in this place.

As far as I know she didn't hurt anybody directly but

"In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women."

So you see it's the women who want the ill gotten money and power and it encourages men to kill each other. If all women thought, "This guy is a criminal, I'm not going to fuck him," then I doubt there would be many gangsters at all.

I guess I can't apply this to homosexuals gangs

collateral damage....shit happens. I doubt the gunmen wanted to light her up too....but sometimes things go bad when a job needs to get done.

If it weren't for women, gangsters wouldnt be so agressive with their dealings. Money is everything to them, and even moreso to their gfs. "Shit, the woman wants a range rover, LV everything, so I gotta do what I gotta do to give it to her." The majority of the money they make probably goes to their "down ass" bitch. I personally think that the women that got shot ARE part of the reasons why those guys were targetted. No one deserves to get shot, but if u play with fire, ure eventually gonna get burned.

I have to agree with you guys. If these girls want to take advantage of the riches gained from a drug life, they are going to have to accept the risks. I can't say I have much sympathy.

Glad the bitch is left in a wheelchair. I just hate the fact that my tax money went to 7 hours of her stupid surgery.

I say execute all these "victims" on TV. The Police should be the top dog of the city, but they're letting all these little g's run around because they're "building a case" Kill em all, I say!
