10th Anniversary of the Surrey Six Murder



Eileen Mohan Tweeted "10 years ago today my Son, Chris was alive and beautiful till evil took his innocent life..I miss him so much." Her son was one of the two innocent victims in the Surrey Six murder which was a complete game changer for everyone involved and everyone in this community. CBC ran an editorial about it today as did the Peacearch News.

It all started for me February 3rd 2008 when I attended an anti gang violence rally at Bear Creek Park where they released doves in memory of loved ones lost to gang violence. I heard Eileen Mohan speak and it broke my heart. She made a public plea for a website to identify known gang members. She said they had no idea they were living beside gang members. She said if they had known, her son would still be alive today. Her grief moved me.

I knew there would be legal challenges. I knew there'd be threats. Knowing my background with the Guardian Angles during the US crack epidemic and my experience defending free speech in the courts, I knew that would be something I could do. So I did. The rest is history.

In this murder two innocent witnesses were not just stuck by stray bullets, they were intentionally executed simply for being witnesses. That outrageous act changed everything. Everyone and their dog flipped on them and no one calls them rats for testifying. The ones who committed that heinous act are the rats not the ones who testified against them.

October 2nd 2014 there were two convictions in the Surrey Six Murder. A copy of the court decision was posted online. They were sentenced December 2014.

Since one of the police investigators had an affair with one of the witnesses, Jamie Bacon's trial was separated from the others. Jamie Bacon was the one that organized the hit. He tried to tax Corey Lal on behalf of the Hells Angels and Cory said no. Jamie's brother Jonathan was close friends with Larry Amero for many years. Before the Surrey Six the Red Scorpions worked for the UN. After the Surrey Six they started working for the Hells Angels. It's that simple.

Eileen Mohan is a remarkable person. Although she was the one that inspired my blog and website, she obviously doesn't agree with my politics. I respect that. Yet most people realize my aggressiveness is driven by my sincerity. I do care and I have seen Curtis Sliwa do what others said couldn't be done on a daily basis. Eileen has taken the higher road.

Eileen Mohan held a memorial mass for her son May 31 2008 where numerous politicians attended and spoke. May 26, 2012 Eileen organized a memorial forum at Queen Elizabeth Secondary where Kim Bolan spoke. July 24th 2014 Eileen contracted Katy Hutchison to speak at the Sheraton in Surrey. That was profound. I still wish we had Eileen Mohan for Mayor in Surrey instead of Linda Hepner. Eileen Mohan can't be bought.

Surrey Now Leader: Eileen Mohan, a remarkable lady

    1. Thanks. It ruffles a lot of feathers but I suppose that comes with the territory. People get mad when someone exposes something they want hid.

  2. Ms. Mohan has done a great deal of work and continues to be a gracious reminder that we all have a great deal of work to do to make our society a better place for all to live. Her son, died much too young. He and the other innocent victim have been dead for 10 years. Their families and friends have continued to grieve because of the actions of a few crazy young men.

    I wish Ms. Mohan peace.
