Homicides in Edmonton, Calgary and Vernon - Update

Prime time Crime is reporting that there has been recent homicides in Calgary and Edmonton. The Edmonton Sun is reporting that Nadine Skow, a 38-year-old employee of the YWCA in Lethbridge, was found stabbed to death in her suite at 104 Street and 106 Avenue in Edmonton this week. CBC is reporting that her ex-boyfriend has been accused of her murder. CBC is also reporting that a dead man was found lying on the road early this morning just off 118th Avenue. Homicide detectives were at the scene investigating what they're calling a "suspicious death."

The Calgary Sun is reporting that Gunfire claimed the life of a man outside his northwest Calgary home Thursday in the city’s third murder in less than a week. The Calgary Herald is reporting that "the man gunned down on a northwest Calgary street was a longtime, influential underworld figure once responsible for bringing large volumes of illegal drugs into the province."

The Vernon Morning Star is reporting that the body of a male in his 40's was found in Vernon at Poulson Park Wednesday morning. Infotel is reporting that police have identified the body as 42-year-old Jason Thomas Hardy, and believe foul play was involved in his death. Hardy has some history with police and was residing in the Vernon area.

Update: The Calgary Sun is reporting that Phillip Tu, who was gunned down in Calgary last week, had a brother named Donny Tu who was killed in like manner May 3 2010.

The Vancouver Province is reporting that police have two suspects in custody already for the Vernon murder - an 18 year old and a 14 year old. Castanet is reporting that the 18 year old is Brandon Joseph Clayton Wellington and that police believe the attack was targeted.

Scientist suspended for expressing political opinion

Once again we have re entered the Twilight Zone. CBC is reporting that Tony Turner, a scientist with Environment Canada, has been suspended from his job and is being investigated because he wrote and performed a political song on Youtube called Harperman. Sounds like something Putin did not long ago. Firing someone for expressing their political opinion. That's not the same Canada I grew up in. MaCleans ran the story as well as The Guardian. This is the video and petition.

Canadian Hells Angels convicted in Spain for smuggling 300 kilos of cocaine

OK so there are two separate cases in Europe involving Canadian members of the Hells Angels that we are following. One is the 300 kilo of cocaine bust in Spain where two full patch members were arrested along with two associates from Haney and Mission City chapters. The other case involves the three full patch members from Edmonton and Red Deer that were charged with beating a guy in Greece to death because they were sitting on his motorcycle and he asked if he could have it back so he could leave. It was deplorable.

One of my blog readers also reads Kim Bolan's blog. He claims that someone commented on Kim Bolan's blog claiming that the Canadian Hells Angels charged in the Spanish cocaine bust are back in Canada already. Kim then confirmed that they are indeed back and cited a Spanish news report which stated:

"The Audiencia Nacional (AN ) imposed four years and seven months in prison on Chad John Wilson, Jason Cyrus Arkinstall, Scott Ryan Smitna and Michael John Drybourgh – four Hells Angels and Canadian citizens arrested in August 2013 in Galicia, when they moved to pick up a shipment of 300 kilos of cocaine. In addition to establishing a fine estimated at 5,250,000 euros, the decision specifies that no convicted would serve their sentences in prison, but they will be expelled from Spain and may not return for a period of seven years."

They were convicted of smuggling 300 kilos of cocaine but didn't have to serve their time, instead they were kicked out of Spain and banned from returning for seven years. That is absolutely bizarre. Let's hope Greece does a better job for murder.

Agent K responds to a Troll

Some obscure troll who looks like a meth head made a video on youtube "calling out" Agent K. It obviously isn't worth my time but since they did ask a question I will answer that question and point out the obvious. As Fat Joe said to 50 Cent this is a one time response only. I aint gonna argue with an idiot. In the video the troll asked me how my court case is going.

Fine. Actually it's over and I'm still here. Defamation is a serious issue. So is free speech. Be advised that false allegations of defamation constitute defamation. All I'm allowed to say about the court case is that a mutual release was entered into by both parties and the matter is resolved. It cost me $1,500. One thousand dollars was raised by private donors. The Gofundme page is still there. I just took down all the posts talking about the trial. My responses are in the court file.

It is pretty obvious that free speech is under fire. Ontario had such a problem with Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation that they enacted legislation to combat frivolous law suits designed to censor free speech. I don't see that happening in BC because there isn't the political will to address the problem within the Christy Clark government. I don't see federal legislation responding to the problem either because Stephen Harper's supporters are the worst offenders.

The whole youtube video doesn't make sense because it doesn't call out Agent K at all. Its big revelation is that Agent K from Gangsters out is Dennis Watson. Very good, Did you read that in the newspaper or did someone have to read that to you? The troll claims that they are not affiliated with any gang yet at the end of the video they claim they have given my name to the "boys" which is a common reference to the Hells Angels. What am I supposed to do? Shake and tremble? Not likely. First of all, just because you buy crack from the Hells Angels doesn't mean you are allowed to use their name to threaten me. Who are you to use the name of the Hells Angels?

Use your brain. How do you think the newspaper found out who I am? They sent a process server to my home and I blogged about it. The boys already know who I am dumbass. You telling them isn't going to make a difference. The bottom line is I don't like crack dealers. I don't care if they're bikers, bankers, politicians or wall street investors, they're all equally to blame for the murder of Janice Shore. If you support that then we have nothing more to discuss. A Dieu.

Don't even get me started on 50 Cent and his Justin Bieber Unit. No one on the street in LA or New York City listens to 50 Cent. His followers, like Justine Bieber, are yuppies from the suburbs. Bieber is rich too. That doesn't make him a G. Gansta you not toy soldier.

The other day I bumped into a guy in Surrey wearing a Wu Tang Clan shirt. I look at him and say ah... Wu Tang Clan. He responds with oh, so you know what's going on. (For an old guy) I'm like yeah they're from New York. He nods then I add, come to think of it, Drake is popular in New York now. That's kind of surprising for a Canadian. He's like don't get me started on Drake. I'm like yeah I know. My daughter likes him. Well that's OK then he says as I nod.

I heard a track of Drake and the Game the other day. Two very different styles. The Game is like hard core inner city while Drake is smoother like a Tribe Called Quest but different. I like a Tribe Called Quest. They're from Queens. I knew a guy from Queens when I was in New York. He was very smooth.

I'll have to admit that Drake's Meek Mills diss Charged up is pretty good. In his second track Back to Back he asks is that your world tour or your girl's tour. Referencing the fact that Meek is the back up band for Nicki Minaj and is riding off her coat tails. In his first track he compares their relationship to Maria Carey and Nick and counsels Nicki to get a prenup. I aint gonna diss the father of Nicki's child. I'll just say that Drake hit him hard and clean. Hats off to Meek though. He's the one that won the Queen of Anaconda's heart. That treasure is priceless.

Body dumped in Prince George

The Vancouver Province is reporting that the body of a 35 year old man was dumped in Prince George. "A police officer found the body of Ian Matthew Begg at the end of Haldi Lake Road at about 8:40 a.m. on Sunday morning."

Canadian lawyers laundering money

Here's an interesting one. Today's Vancouver Province claims "Money laundering experts say there is no way for Canadians to know how much dirty money is being laundered in Vancouver real estate through Canadian lawyers. As a Province investigation revealed Monday, Canada’s financial intelligence unit Fintrac has ramped up an audit of Vancouver’s booming property market because of concerns that realtors may be turning a blind eye to money laundering."

We're going to have to start an online pool. How long do you think it will take Christie Clark to disband Canada’s financial intelligence unit? Historically, every time a police task force found organized crime, a government body disbanded that police task force. They claim "Canada's dirty money detection system broken all the way through." So instead of fixing the broken system what do you think the odd are that they';ll just get rid of the task force that came up with the report? Judging from their past history, I'd say it's guaranteed. So let's have a pool to see who can guess how long it will take.

Shooting in Richmond

CBC is reporting that "a man is in hospital following a serious incident Friday night in Richmond, but police are revealing few details. The incident began around 11 p.m. PT Friday near Number 2 Road and Westminster Highway and closed down nearby Dover Park for hours. A trail of blood could be seen leading from the park to a nearby Chevron gas station. Numerous evidence markers covered the scene."

Yes I remember the Dover Park shoot out in 2007 well. It was before I started the blog. I tied white balloons around the park and held a press conference on site calling for a cease fire. It was a park in the middle of a residential housing complex with a day care on site. A local Persian gang were targeted by another group with automatic weapons.

Update: News 1130 is reporting that "Police say a shooting in Richmond on Friday night appears to be targeted and gang related." The man who was shot is well known to the police, has gang ties and is not cooperating with the investigation.

Surrey Shooting

CBC is reporting that there was a shooting in Surrey 9:00 PM last night. "According to police, witnesses called 911 to report that the drivers of a silver Honda Civic and a Ford Mustang were chasing each other, with gunshots being fired between the cars. Officers located the Mustang, detained its three male occupants and found at least one bullet hole in the car."

Politics of the Pork Barrel

As the Canadian election kicks off the parade of politicians spewing ridiculous campaign promises has begun. Mulclair came to Vancouver and promised more money for Transit. Then he came to Surrey and promised more money for police. Likewise Harper and Justin are promising the moon. I think voters in BC and more specifically here in Surrey, don't want to hear a political promise they are going to spend more money on anything. I think they want politicians to be fiscally responsible and lower taxes for everyone not just for the rich and not just for the poor. When the government is fiscally responsible and taxes are low for everyone, business prospers and tax revenue increases.

Think about it. Many years ago Ireland was poor. Then the government had an idea. They figured that 80% of nothing is nothing while 10% of something is something so they offered a tax incentive to corporations. They gave large corporations huge tax breaks. As a result, large corporation moved in and started doing business in Ireland. The Shannon Industrial Park opened up and all of a sudden all these high tech industries set up shop right beside Paddy and Mic's sheep farm. They began to prosper.

Alberta is an excellent model. It's just unfortunate that Stephen Harper had destroyed that model when he went to Ottawa. Alberta has no sales tax. As a result, businesses are attracted to that province. This creates jobs and tax revenue because people working at those jobs pay income tax. Alberta even went one step further. They were doing so well financially they started paying everyone's medical insurance premiums. That almost a socialist idea yet Alberta is very conservative. For them it's just good business and that it is. It just makes sense.

I like Thomas Mulclair because he's a good guy and he's the only one supporting the Canadian Charter of Rights in defense of civil liberty. That is my primary election issue. However, I recognize that no political party is perfect. The Neo Cons keep parroting the same old stereotype that the NDP will tax and spend. Yet Harper has done a far worse job of spending tax dollars then any NDP government has ever dreamed of. Harper was the driving force behind the HST in BC that voters rejected. That is why Harper gave his buddy Gordon Campbell that offensive job as a high commission. Taxing things that are normally tax exempt is not a reduction in taxes. The HST killed a lot of local restaurants before it was finally over turned.

Conservatives are supposed to support small business and the free market. Stephen Harper does not. Harper supports big business and corporate monopolies which gouge consumers destroy the free market. Stephen Harper is no a conservative. He is a Neo Con and that is something very different as Ron Paul has clearly pointed out.

Yet when Thomas Mulcair comes to Vancouver and promises more money for Transit I'm like hold the door. That might be fine in Ontario but in BC Translink is a fiscal disaster. They already are over budget a billion dollars every year and suck that much money up in a regional gas tax above and beyond all the other gas tax. Consumers pay for the gas tax because everything we buy in stores gets shipped there on trucks. In BC we just had a referendum on raising sales tax to pour even more tax dollars into that fiscal nightmare and the voters said no. So promising more money for transit isn't going to win votes here. Forcing Translink to balance their budget will. The fact that SNC-Lavalin got the contract for the Evergreen line was a criminal act all on it's own.

So Thomas comes to Surrey and offers more money for police. Well that's nice but even Surrey's Worst has promised that finally. We have seen that more police officers is indeed helpful but that is not the solution in itself. If we start arresting crack dealers outside the Front Room in Whalley and in Newton then that would certainly make a huge difference to the violent crime in Surrey but that's not going to happen as long as Bill Fordy is in charge. He needs to be transferred out of the City before we can start finally addressing the violent crime in Surrey like we should. Peace.

Margaret Atwood's Hairgate

Margaret Atwood ran an amusing editorial in the National Post mocking Stephen Harper's attack adds on Justine Trudeau which seem to focus on an obsession with his hair. The controversy arises in how much the National Post ended up editing her article. The editing doesn't seem to be too extreme and has me wondering if it ties in with the subject of SLAPP law suits. Newspapers don't like to waste money on lawsuits. Perhaps they were simply covering their ass so to speak.

In her article she asks: Let’s try this hair quiz:

Of the three national male leaders, which one travels with a personal grooming assistant -lavishly paid for in whole or in part by you, gentle taxpayer—so that none of his hairs will ever be out of place, supposing they are indeed his and not a wig, as some have supposed? (Hint: Initials are S.H.) Which leader, on the other hand, doesn’t need such an assistant because his hair is “nice” enough already? (Hint: initials are J.T.) And which one wouldn’t know what a personal grooming assistant was if he fell over one? (Hint: Initials are T.M.)

Internet Censorship Part 2 SLAPP Suits

As we have discussed, large corporations can sue or threaten to sue individuals based on fraudulent copyright claims to censor the Internet. Likewise, the civil courts can and have been misused to bully and censor the Internet. Previously one blog reader referred to this process as a slap suit. Another way the rich bully the poor. Another blog reader explained from Wikipedia:

"A strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP) is a lawsuit that is intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition. The typical SLAPP plaintiff does not normally expect to win the lawsuit. The plaintiff's goals are accomplished if the defendant succumbs to fear, intimidation, mounting legal costs or simple exhaustion and abandons the criticism."

Consequently, the public is engaging in conversations trying to lobby lawmakers to adopt legislation to respond to this kind of censorship. Ontario established an Anti-SLAPP Advisory Panel that the public contacted with their concerns. The panel released it's recommendations in 2010 and the Ontario Government responded by adopting an Ant-SLAPP bill, "The Protection of Public Participation Act" in June 2013. BC needs this. Michael Geist is a good person to follow.

Judges are paid with tax dollars and are employed to protect the public interest not betray that trust. They claim that civilians don't know the law like they do. In reality they elect the governments that make the law. The intent of the law is to protect civilians not enslave them.

Former RCMP officer sentenced for stealing cocaine

The Burnaby Now is reporting that "a former peace officer with the Burnaby RCMP is serving a 14-month jail sentence for stealing a kilogram of cocaine from a police exhibit locker in the spring of 2011. Gary Read, a longtime special constable once in charge of exhibits in Burnaby, was charged with theft in November 2011 after an exhibit audit at the local RCMP detachment in the spring of 2011 revealed some drugs were unaccounted for. Read was found guilty in February 2015." He was recently sentenced this summer. CBC refers to him as a City worker but Vancitybuzz refers to him as a former Burnaby RCMP officer.

Internet Censorship Part 1 Copyright

Today I'm going to launch a two part series on Internet Censorship. For Part 1 we're going to roll back the hands of time and look at Corporate Censorship through fraudulent copyright claims. To being with we'll talk about a case I was personally invoked with about Telus censoring videos on Youtube that Michael Geist wrote about and has now resulted in the Notice and Notice copyright system being implemented in Canada. In the US they have the Notice and Takedown system which as we shall see is filled with problems.

Back in the day I was a bit of a Labour activist so to speak. I supported the Telus employees who went on strike against their employer's use of off shore call centres. Sending Canadian jobs overseas is bad business. I had posted several videos about the dispute on Youtube. Songs employees wrote and performed, a bagpiper leading a picket line and various news reports on the strike. I also posted some exerts of Telus Idol which was a training video filled with sexual harassment. It was a spoof on American Idol and was totally inappropriate. They didn't just film it, they made all their employees watch it as a training video. When I posted it on Youtube they freaked and wanted it off the Internet as soon as possible.

So they contacted Yotube and asked the videos be removed because they violated Telus' copyright. They had all the videos taken off. Even the videos of the picketline and news reports. I complained to Youtube and said come on guys, take a look at the videos. There is no possible way they could own copyright to any of those videos. The only way I could get those videos back on Youtube was by filing a counter notification which I did. That in tern forced Telus to file a copyright claim with the courts which they did. Only they refused to serve me a copy of the claim. They once again tried to go ex parte - without me. It's a lot easier to argue your case when the other party isn't there to defend themselves.

Youtube ended up sending me a copy of their court application and I soon saw why they didn't want me present. They lied. They claimed Telus Idol was called Telus VOIP and was about Telus' voice over Internet protocol and was a copyrighted work. That was a bold faced lie. Telus Idol was a spoof on American Idol full of sexual harassment and had absolutely nothing to do with voice over Internet protocol. Nice try.

So I filled my response to the court objecting to them proceeding ex parte and pointed out that they lied in their application. They also made a fraudulent copyright claim on a whole list of other videos that had nothing to do with Telus Idol which they had no possible copyright claim on. Later I found out that one of their representatives said that the name of the CEO was protected by copyright and that they owned copyright to any video that uttered his name. It was absurd.

To make a long story short, I told the law firm in San Fransisco that they could have Telus Idol as long as I got back all the other videos. They refused and insisted on litigating it to the end. After a full trial against three different law firms they got Telus Idol and I got all the other videos back. Just like I had said.

I remember meeting with a lawyer that represented Telus in Vancouver from the largest firm I had ever seen not to mention gone up against. He was trying to get me to take down another web site I had about the CEO. I said sorry, no can do. He said how about I make that trial in San Fransisco disappear. I laughed and said I'm not to worried about that trial. I filed a Motion to Dismiss on Jurisdiction and had everything in their wish list taken off their application and made sure the case was strictly about videos posted on Youtube. I'm allowed to E-file court documents. I'm allowed to make telephone appearances and I caught them lying in their initial application. Quite frankly, I'm not too worried about that trial. He just kinda looked at me and growled.

I said to him, I fully realize we don't have the same amount of chips on the table here. If the court finds Telus right and I have violated their copyright, I could be fined $500,000 and go to jail. If I'm right and Telus did in fact commit copyfraud, fraudulently claiming copyright to something so they could censor the Internet, they could be fined $2,000 which is nothing for a big corporation. I looked at the lawyer and said I am fully aware I have much more to lose here then your client. He just looked at me in shock as if to say you realize that and you are still going to proceed. I just nodded embarrassed and said yes as his stunned look said you are insane. I felt sorry for him and wrote him a nice tribute. He still uses my quote on his home page. I'm the adversary he quoted.

The point of this tall tale is that one way large corporations censor the Internet is through fraudulent copyright claims. The Notice and Notice copyright system is better than the Notice and Takedown system as Michael Geist has explained. The Notice and Takedown model means as soon as a server gets an allegation that someone might sue, they take down the content to avoid spending money on a trial. The Notice and Notice model means the person who posted the information has a right to go to court without the server being sued. Peace.

Lilyhammer End Game

As I previously mentioned I have been enjoying a Netfilx TV series called Lilyhammer. It's about a New York Mafioso who moves to Norway after getting shafted by a rival. He picked Lilyhammer after seeing it on the Winter Olympics. It's a fun series because it was actually filmed in Norway with a Norwegian cast. Most of it is in English but parts are in Norwegian with English subtitles making it all that more realistic. The Rolling Stone ran and article about it.

Johnny, the New York Mafioso meets a nice Norwegian woman and has a child with her, actually twins. Only she gets fed up with Johnny's secret business transactions and kicks him out. Torgeir is a fun character that rises up to become Johnny's right hand man. He eventually meets a girl and as they prepare for her to have a child he starts to reconsider whether or not he should leave the game so to speak and focus on starting a new life as a Dad.

At first Johny says I'm sorry but I can't accept your resignation at this time. The only way you can get out of this business is horizontally. Then they end up having to kill one of their former associates who screwed up. Killing bad guys is pretty easy but killing an innocent person or a decent guy who screwed up is an entirely different matter. After that incident Torgeir lost the wind in his sails and once again asked Johnny to retire. This time Johnny said yes and let him retire on good terms.

We used to have a saying here. 81 in 86 out. Now that's not so much the case and many people have been able to retire in good standing. The key thing is once you retire, keep your mouth shut and start a new life. If you become an informant no one can protect you.

TBM Fresh Start has a good thing going. They are big in Scandinavia. They are well established in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. They actually have a series of safe houses like the RA in Ireland did to protect people who want to leave the gang life. I had sincerely hoped to be able to get involved with them in Canada. Unfortunately my resources are tapped out and I have to focus on paying my own bills right now. Yet if anyone else wants to rise to the challenge and help them set up here in Canada please feel free. As individuals we can't do everything but we can do something.

Gas prices rise while oil prices drop

Market Watch posted an article running interference for the obvious dilemma: Why gas prices are rising as oil falls to 6-year lows. Gee I wonder. It's because Harper let the oil companies obtain a monopoly on the market then sold that monopoly to Communist China.

The Canadian oil companies are getting screwed over by that monopoly. The Canadian workers in the oil fields are getting screwed over by that monopoly. The Canadian consumers at the gas pumps are getting screwed over by that monopoly.

Years ago, the Rockefellers were using hostile takeovers to obtain a monopoly on the market through Standard oil, the US courts ruled it illegal citing anti trust laws. Now the dirty politicians call it good business as they line their pockets with political contributions. Corporate monopolies are good business because they screw over the consumers and destroy the free market. Welcome to Harper's Corporate Communism.

I noticed that Harpers attack adds have shifted from Justin Trudeau to Thomas Mulclair. They wouldn't have enough air time to put out commercials about Harpers corruption within his caucus.

A friend at work asked me if I saw Harper's trolls heckle the media for asking questions about the Duffy trial. I missed it but it certainly doesn't surprise me. When Harper has a press conference he tries to control what questions are asked. This time he had trolls heckle the media for asking him about the Duffy scandal which is in trial now. The media has every right to ask questions about it. This is another example of the propaganda machine that tries to control the press. Stephen Harper is no Preston Manning.

The Struggle between Good and Evil

Lao Tzu said it is better to light one candle then curse all the darkens. He's right. Take it from me, I've cursed a lot of darkness. Yet Martin Luther King taught noncooperation with evil is as much a moral obligation as is cooperation with good. Both are inspired.

Lao Tzu is right in that it is a much more positive and productive quest to light candles then be a hater so to speak. Yet there is a time and place for all things. A time for war and a time for peace. You cannot tolerate evil and be good. Duty calls us to shun evil.

When I look at Shane Bunting's video about kidnapping a woman before torturing and killing her, there is nothing good in it. There is absolutely nothing there to be admired or respected. At all. Idolizing evil is ridiculous. There is nothing cool about evil. There's nothing cool about stealing a purse from an old lady and there is nothing cool about murdering a woman to maintain a monopoly on an industry. It is our duty to shun evil and expose the lies that rationalize their dark deeds.

Lao Tzu also said that if you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading. We all know where the gang life leads. The plastic world of materialism and greed leads to selfishness and betrayal. A real jedi seeks none of these things.

I've been really upset about getting screwed over in court. I have lost complete faith in the BC judicial system. It's hard not to have a desire to go Boon Dock Saints and deal with it directly. It takes time to process loss whether that be the loss of a loved one who was murdered or the loss of justice in the court system. Nevertheless justice will not sleep forever.

So what I have done with all this blogging in the face of haters and death threats? I named Bob Roth before the press or the police did as the one who was decapitated by the Whiteboy Posse for a drug debt. The Whiteboy Posse sell drugs for the Edmonton Hells Angels. Flaunting Nazi logos in our day is in essence pissing on a good soldier's grave. It is very disrespectful.

I named the prime suspect in the murder of Janice Shore and who he worked for before they terminated his contract. I also named who was ultimately responsible for the murder of Brittney Irving. All three murders were tied to the Hells Angels. There is nothing noble or admirable about murdering women and children. You cannot tolerate or rationalize evil without becoming an accomplice to it. What they did to Brandy Sarionder was wrong. All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men and women to remain silent and do nothing. Peace.

Hells Angels lose appeal connected to Fort McMurray cocaine trade

The Edmonton journal is reporting that "Alberta’s top court has rejected the appeals of two Edmonton Hells Angels and convicted them of additional crimes connected to the cocaine trade in Fort McMurray. In one decision, the Court of Appeal of Alberta rejected the appeals of John Reginald Alcantara and Alan Peter Knapczyk, after their 2012 convictions for protecting the main cocaine dealer in Fort Mac from competitors and theft."

They were once again using the name and reputation of the club to protect drug dealers from rivals. This is the same pattern that has repeated itself across the country. In Winnipeg the Hells Angels were protecting the Zig Zag crew (who sold crack for the Hells Angels) from rival drug dealers. Just like they enforce for the crack dealers outside the Front Room in Surrey.

James Riach makes Bail

It appears that James Riach also known as the Gingerbread man has made bail in the Philippines. James Raich walked away from the car when Larry Amero was shot and Jonathon Bacon was killed. Haney Hells Angel President Michael Hadden's niece was tragically paralyzed in that shooting. More recently Hells Angels associate and Independent Soldier James Riach was arrested for drug trafficking in the Philippines with Barry Espadilla and Spike's other niece Tara Leanne Hadden-White. Tara has a child with Barry and was released without being charged.

I still can't get the James Riach articles on to load but there appears to be a great deal of controversy over the judge's decision. It appears that Canada isn't the only place where the public is concerned with bad judges. Right from the get go, people expressed concerns about corruption in the Philippines. That could be a large factor in this case.

Civil Liberty Association Gagged

News 1130 is reporting that "The BC Civil Liberties Association says it has been barred from saying anything about testimony at a secret hearing in Vancouver looking into whether or not Canadians were illegally spied upon by CSIS. It filed a complaint with the Security Intelligence Review Committee, claiming CSIS agents unlawfully gathered information on community groups opposed to the Northern Gateway Project." We're not allowed to talk about CSIS warantless spying on civilians for their political affiliation. The Charter of Rights takes yet another hit in our Brave New World without civil liberty. God help us.

Émery Martin pleads guilty to conspiracy to commit murder

The Neer do well Hall of Infamy blog is reporting that Émery Martin pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder earlier in the week, right before the biker mega-trial was scheduled to begin at Montreal's Gouin courthouse. Martin, from Ste-Anne-de-Madawaska in New Brunswick, was arrested in 2009 during the SharQc sting operation.

The Montreal Gazette is reporting that "Emery Martin, an alleged Hells Angels member who was accused of being part of a general murder conspiracy under the police operation dubbed SharQc, was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday. Even so, Martin was given leave of his prison cell because he’s already spent the equivalent time in custody. Martin, who pleaded guilty last Monday, also had $30,000 confiscated."

CBC is reporting that "Martin is one of 105 people who has pleaded guilty since 2009 to avoid a trial, while 31 others were released in 2011 after a judge ruled there had been unreasonable delays in their cases. Another three people have died since being charged, while eight others are still at large." Eighteen Hells Angels and associates pleaded guilty to taking part in a general conspiracy to commit murder March. In 2012 the court was told every murder was approved by a committee.

Judge OKs change in clubhouses suit

The Vancouver Province is reporting that "A judge has agreed to an application by the provincial director of civil forfeiture to amend the government’s lawsuit, a move that is expected to significantly streamline a legal battle that began eight years ago." Instead of trying to prove the entire club is a criminal organization, they are simply trying to prove the Kelowna, East Vancouver and Naniamo clubhouses were used for criminal activity. I think that's the best approach. As Kerri Krysko pointed out, there are many members who are criminals but there are even more who aren't. Yet the Kelwona chapter was involved in so much criminal activity, any judge that doesn't grant the seizure of that clubhouse needs to be hanged right beside Peter Leask.

Hells Angels share Stephen Harper's hotel

CBC is reporting that "Extra security precautions had to be taken for Conservative Leader Stephen Harper and his family Thursday evening when the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club rolled in to stay at the same east-end Toronto hotel. About 30 bikers wearing Hells Angels, Red Devils and Nomad patches arrived at the Scarborough hotel on Thursday afternoon. Many members of the groups remained outside by their Harley Davidson motorcycles into Friday morning."

Maybe Harper was just looking for another lawyer to appoint to the bench.

Remembering Brandy Sarionder

The Times Colonist is reporting that Wayne Kalnciems retired from the exotic dancer industry the month before Brandy was killed. He was obviously forced out of the industry just like Brandy was forced out of her own club she had originally set up. I had Wayne mixed up with Waide. Waide Luciak was Brandy's business partner at the Granville strip not Wayne.

I just want to be very clear about that fact. When Brandy was found dead in her home a troll called into the newspaper pretending to be her friend and told the paper false information. They said she was depressed and broke because she was trying to start up a new club but couldn't find any investors. That was simply untrue. One of her real friends contacted me and confirmed that she was involved with the opening of the Granville Strip.

I put up posters asking for information about her murder outside her old strip club and outside her new one as well. I thought about asking people at her old club about her involvement with the new one but decided against it. I realized she would have had many loyal friends there still but they would have been scared into silence not wanting to lose their job under the new management. I thought about going to her new club and asking Waide himself but decided against it. I felt he would have been grieving the loss of his business partner and no doubt too scared for his own life to say anything.

Waide had no experience in that industry. He previously ran Jazz clubs. He needed someone with Brandy's experience to start his own strip bar. There was a troll review posted on a website that confirmed it. After I linked to it, the person took down the review. The one I saw was trashing the new club even though it admitted there was a huge line out front and they had to wait a long time to get in. Business was booming.

The fake troll review was trashing the new club saying the strippers were all old and recommended the Orange No. 5 instead which is run by the Hells Angels. That fake troll review admitted they were under the impression that the new club was indeed run by Brandy. After I posted that on my blog the fake troll review was taken down but it was there. I saw it.

I have a lot more to say about this case but for now I just wanted to make that point clear. The troll that called into the paper pretending to be Brandy's friend lied. She did find an investor and did open up a new club right before her untimely death. Gino Zumpano was her ex. Peace.

Anonyleaks: Nathan Jacobson

Anonymous has started to leak some documents on Nathan Jacobson. I'm multi tasking several things at once and need some time to go thorough it but it appears there was some kind of court case between Jacobson and CSIS. Go Team.

We need to remember why Anonymous is releasing documents. It's because the RCMP shot one of their members dead because he was sitting on the ground wearing a mask at a protest. That needs to be addressed. No charges against the officer have been laid. That is totally messed up. The Whiterock shooting was a tragic accident but why hasn't the public been told the kid the police shot dead was unarmed and was hysterically running for his life to the police for help. Why hasn't the media mentioned the police officer that was shot, shot themself by accident. These facts need to be made public. The main stream media has failed us. The police play a crucial role in our society but they must be accountable to the public they are paid to protect.

While we are on the subject I will say a word about Israel. I am pretty passionate about Israel's right to exist and their duty to coexist. The Holocaust was a horrible thing. I don't support anti Semitism any more then I support anti Islam. Religious persecution is illegal in any free republic. Israel is close to my heart as is their struggle for peace. I worked on a Kibbutz in Israel when I was young. It was wonderful. I supported the Oasis of Peace in Israel where Palestinians and Jews live together in peace under the religious freedom model. It is a good model.

There is good and bad in every person and culture. Jews have a right to their homeland. It's just that they don't have an exclusive right. When Joshua conquered Palestine he did not conquer all of it. The torah clearly states vex not the stranger that sojourneth with thee. Palestinians deserve a passport. They deserve citizenship. Forming a Jewish state is as problematic as forming an Islamic state. It is not a free republic. It is very problematic.

My beef with Mossad has nothing to do with Zionism. Bob Marley was a Zionist. Zionism does not mean forceful evitions. Zionism is an ideal goal where people live together in peace. My beef with Mossad is simply the end does not justify the means. Investment fraud and drug trafficking are wrong. You wouldn't like us to steal from you so don't steal from us. Why on earth was a Star of David found on a brick of cocaine seized in British Columbia? That is blasphemy. Peace.

Vancovuer teen dies of fentanyl overdose

The Vancouver Province is reporting that Jack Bodie, the 17-year-old boy who was clinging to life after a suspected fentanyl overdose has died. Vancouver Police said the teen, along with another 16-year-old boy, are believed to have bought and ingested fake OxyContin pills, known as “fake ’80s.” The pair passed out in Shelley Park in East Vancouver Saturday night after taking the drug. They were taken to B.C. Children’s Hospital.

The teen's parents told Global News that their "bombastic, charismatic" son was "full of life," with a bright future ahead. "He's not what we could consider, in our mind's eye, the typical overdose. He's a young man who took a pill and fell asleep on a park bench," said Mark Bodie, Jack's dad.

Anonymous and John Baird

The National Post is reporting that Anonymous is threatening to release text messages from John Baird that allegedly reveal the ‘real reason’ he left politics. They claim he was being blackmailed by Mossad with incriminating photographs. I'll wait for more tangible evidence to surface.

Anonymous didn't say they had a copy of the incriminating photo, they said they had text messages that referred to it. The real question is why did he get a special assignment at Barrick Gold? That company was founded by an arms dealer tied to Iran Contra.

The Kelowna Hells Angels

This blog has been running for over six years now. It started because of the Surrey Six. Two innocent bystanders were executed for simply being witnesses to that gang hit. The public outrage over that heartless crime continues to this day. Then it became all about Janice Shore, Ashley Machiskinic and Bob Roth. Addicts murdered for drug debts.

The drug related violence associated with crack cocaine and crystal meth is reminiscent of the US crack epidemic in the 1980's. I was personally involved with combating that epidemic in New York City and South Seattle. That is why I support the New York Model. I was there. I saw it. I was never a cop or a narc. I was just a concerned citizen who teamed up with other concerned citizens to take back their communities from the drug dealers.

Many concerned citizens from Kelowna started contacting me sending in tips and pictures. David Giles was one person many different people kept sending in pictures of. He was so popular in that world I started to refer to him as Skelator since he was so untouchable despite the fact that Neil Hall claimed he was implicated in the Western Wind bust. The fact that no charges were ever laid in that bust despite the fact that 1 and 1/2 tons of cocaine bound for the BC Hells Angels was seized is the perfect example of police corruption at it's worst.

As we all know David Giles has been charged again. This time he hasn't made bail. At the time of his bust, he was the vice president of the Kelowna Hells Angels. Before him, Lester Jones was convicted of drug trafficking. That shows a pattern. These weren't just two people who happened to be members of the club. These were two vice presidents of the club.

Since there was so many concerned citizens in Kelowna that were upset about what was happening in their community, I started a Kelowna Corner on my web site and launched a campaign which I referred to as the Kelowna Summer Jam. It was a play on words. It sounded like another music festival but it wasn't. It was a campaign to highlight crime in Kelowna based on a line in Young Jeezy's song Soul Survivor that said if you get jammed up, don't mention my name.

Ironically enough, the OMGU decided to do an undercover sting in Kelowna at that same time which resulted in David Giles' drug bust along with the bust of a huge stolen car, boat and motorcycle ring tied to the Hells Angels. The Kelwona Hells Angels were never actually charged as a group for that stolen car ring but they were clearly implicated in it. Johnny Newcome, the one that took the fall for revinning the stolen vehicles was a Hells Angels associate. Some of the stolen vehicles in that ring were later found in possession of the Calgary and Nanaimo Hells Angels.

To be honest, that was a big shock to me. I knew about the drug trafficking but stolen cars and motorcycles? Only rats steal cars. Somewhat ironic they call people rats for reporting car thieves to the police. In reality it is the other way around. During the Kelowna Summer Jam I put up posters around Kelowna and outside the Hells Angels clubhouse.

The purpose of the posters was to highlight three murders in which the Kelowna Hells Angels were implicated - Geoff Meisner, Dain Philips and Brittney Irving. I stated reporting a murder to the police is not being a rat, failing to do so is.

We all know that Robert Thomas and Norm Cox were convicted of murdering Dain Philips. They and a group of associates swarmed him and beat him to death with baseball bats and hammers. Dain had come to a meeting to help broker a deal because Norm Cox had punched his son in the head and threatened him over a high school beef. After Dain chased Norm Cox Norm came back with Robbert Thomas and a car load of associates to jump him.

Robert Thomas used the name of the Hells Angels in that assault. He raised his baseball bat to the air and said so you want to f with the Hells Angels? Dain raised his hands in surrender and said he just wanted to talk. Robert smashed Dain in the leg with the baseball bat and Dain didn't move. After Robert hit him in the head with the baseball bat and brought him to the ground all the others jumped in and beat him to death with hammers. It was senseless and brutal.

After they were arrested Robert Thomas and Norm Cox were assaulted several times in prison. They had lost favor with the club for getting them bad press. Geoff Meisner's body has never been recovered to this day. A year after his death his wife went to court to have him declared dead so she could sell some assets to feed their kids. Castanet got a hold of the court document and discovered his wife had admitted that Geoff was a Hells Angels associate when he disappeared. With friends like those, who needs enemies.

That leaves us with the murder of Britney Irving. Joey Verma was a Hells Angels associate that was convicted in her murder. He was with a Hells Angels puppet club called the Independent Soldiers. I attended parts of the trial. Shortly before she was murdered she ran a clone show that was busted. It wasn't a grow op per say. She would take trimmings, dip them in rooting compound and start new plants. Her clone show supplied grow ops with baby plants. People claimed she was murdered because she was a rat. That was a bold faced lie. That bust put her and her brother in a desperate financial situation. She did not rat our her own clone show.

She was desperate to pay back a debt and planned a large pot deal to help her come up with some cash. Joey Verma was involved with that deal and was convicted of killing her. Some said he ripped her off. That was nonsense. The profit margin in that deal was not enough for him to pay back any debt he owed. Ripping her off for that small amount of money made no sense since they were seeing each other and he was paying for her hotel after the bust so she'd have a place to live. He was however implicated in her murder and said he had to do it and that he didn't have a choice.

He tried to get another man to take the fall for him and said he can't go to jail because he's making too much money selling drugs. He then spoke with the lawyer and told the man he was off the hook and that Joey would have to take the fall himself. After he was arrested he was still selling drugs in prison. The judge was surprised at the volume of drugs. Joey wasn't a low level dealer like I had originally thought. He began recruiting for the Kingpin Crew while in prison and got a new tattoo that said VP as in Vice President. Someone had promised him that position in the club. Shortly after that the Kingpin crew were officially disbanded.

Although the Kelowna Hells Angels were never collectively charged in any of these crimes they were most certainly implicated in them. The police have since applied to the courts to seize the Kelowna Hells Angels clubhouse under proceeds of crime legislation. For our sakes, let's hope that case does not go in front of Justice Ronald Skolrood. He has admitted to being biased against the proceeds of crime legislation. God help us. We know the courts won't.

Surrey recovery flop house

CTV reported that "Former Sikh activist Amrit Rai was arrested at Freedom for Life Recovery House on May 18 and police seized the money and heroin, adding another twist to his storied life and casting doubt among those in the recovery business about whether addicts seeking help can get it from this unregulated facility in Surrey."

Blaze was actually the one that brought this to my attentions. However it isn't right beside the Front Room like he claims where the crack dealers sell crack openly. It was at 106 Avenue off 148th Street. Just because it's a brown guy doesn't mean he wasn't getting it from the Hells Angels. We know the Dhurry Dhak group are Hells Angels rivals but we know Randy Naicker was a Hells Angels associate and that Rajinder Singh Sandhu is a full patch member in Nanaimo.

When Lenny was being threatened by Stuart Mcfarlan for testifying against Paul Dean Freeman in 87/88, he had a house full of brown guys with guns protecting him. I realize the Hells Angels aren't the only ones that sell drugs in Surrey. I just know they supply the dealers outside the Front Room which is the epicenter of drug related violence in Surrey. Tbarz was named as the hub of a Hells Angels cross border drug trafficking ring. Randy Jones' brother Trevor is still waiting to be extradited for that case.

The point of this story is unregulated recovery houses that become flop houses for drug trafficking and exploitation. Deregulation has once again promoted criminal activity.
