This poor excuse for a ‘news’ story is from the Vancouver, B.C. Sun. It tells us that three people are dead in ten separate ”random attacks” which are apparently now a trend in that city.
Who is responsible? Judging by the hint in the headline, ”booze and bravado” are responsible.
Otherwise the only hint that sentient beings are involved in attacking people is the reference to ”groups”. Groups of what, or whom? Escaped zoo animals? Giant blancmanges from outer space (Monty Python reference, for those unfamiliar)? Who?
Whatever happened to the principle of reporting ‘who, what, and where?’ It was one of the first of many casualties of political correctness.
I heard of this latest incident via radio news, and so I know that the latest victim died at home after having suffered a head injury in a one-punch attack on the streets of Vancouver. Otherwise I would have no clue, but the circumstances seem to indicate what is called ‘The Knockout Game’ here in the U.S.
Apparently political correctness is that much more stringent in Canada, preventing us from knowing more about the dangerous attackers who roam at large, unimpeded. Nobody dares profile, right? So we must all engage in a bizarre pretense in which nobody has a clue as to the attackers’ identity or general appearance.
Vancouver was once a safe, peaceful city, as big cities go. Now I hear that Vancouver is changed out of all recognition, compared to what it was when I last visited there.
A population conditioned to be passive and ‘politically correct’, and above all, committed to absolute, unqualified tolerance of everything, is a population set up to be helpless targets for the malicious and the lawless. Add to this a dishonest-to-the-core leftist media machine and a system that considers ‘profiling’ worse than murders of innocent people — voila. This is what you have.
