Daily Aggregation: Guns, Fracking And Fat Captain Kirk

daily-aggregation-2BREAKING The Statue Of Liberty has apparently been evacuated due to a suspicious package?

1. MAN WHO MURDERED THREE CHILDREN AND THEIR MOTHER THEN KILLED HIMSELF WAS MENTALLY ILL Seems plausible but kind of tough to take considering that 99.99 per cent of people with mental health problems don’t go on savage, homicidal rampages.

2. HARPER GOVERNMENT WANTS TO KEEP A FORMER CHILD SOLDIER (WHO WAS BLACKMAILED INTO A GUILTY PLEA BY A GULAG COURT) IN PRISON The pro-gun Harper government should spend more time working to keep guns out of the hands of people who kill families and less time obsessively trying to punish a former child soldier.

3. RURAL SASKATCHEWAN SUDDENLY REALIZES FIREARMS SHOULDN’T BE TAKEN LIGHTLY Humboldt is tightening up its pest control procedures in the wake of the Tisdale massacre.

4. THEY SHOOT YOU FOR GRAFFITI NOW A 19-year-old is in critical condition in Long Beach after cops shot him apparently because he was spraying graffiti.

5. SHIT’S GOING DOWN IN OILERTOWN Press conference after lunch.

6. CANADIAN BORDER GUARDS STRIP-SEARCHED A BUSLOAD OF AMERICAN STUDENTS Don’t come to Canada for a party, apparently.

7. TWO AVENGERS TALK SOME SEXIST AND SEX-NEGATIVE TRASH ABOUT BLACK WIDOW; ONE MAKES AN ACCEPTABLE APOLOGY I hope we all learned something.

8. ADAM SANDLER’S EXTRAS AREN’T LAUGHING First Nations actors walk off Sandler’s latest project because the script is full of racist jokes.

9. MICHAEL BROWN’S FAMILY SUES THE COP WHO KILLED HIM Read all about it.

10. THERE WAS AN EARTHQUAKE IN BRITISH COLUMBIA Or British “Colombia” as the Harper Government spells it. Anyway, no biggie.

11. FRACKING CAUSES EARTHQUAKES Golly, who knew the radical environmentalists were right about something. More on the horror of resource extraction here.

  1. (1) Forwarding photos of murdered children to their father would appear to be a calculated act, not evidence of mental illness. So, too, the deliberate crash of a German airliner into a mountain.
    (3) This will last a brief time, until the shock wears off; then people will go back to business as usual.
    (4) I’m sure that there are folks reading this story, victims of graffiti, who aren’t all that sympathetic.
    (5) Yawn.
    (6) Well, not if you have a criminal record, or are holding.
    (7) Comic book characters; comic book behaviour. Why are we surprised?
    (8) Nothing Adam Sandler does is funny.

  2. (2) I couldn’t read the link because Winnipeg Free Press wants me to sign in, but does it actually say that Mr. Khadr was a child soldier. Because it was my understanding that he was with his father in a house under attack by American soldiers and threw a live grenade that they threw in the house back out the window. That kid deserves a medal, not torture.

  3. 2) The RCMP haven’t released any info. on what type of weapon was used in the multiple slaying of the young family in Tisdale. You seem to think a gun was used Stephen, do you know something none of the general public know? Or was that just a guess? Perhaps it was an unregistered knife?
