Samson Serjohn shooting trial raises disturbing details

Keith Fraser is reporting on the trial of a 16 year old kid charged with shooting Samson Serjohn in Burnaby November 2016. The accused was someone Samson knew enough for his girlfriend not to suspect anything when he showed up at their townhouse.

"On Jan. 5, 2017, the accused was arrested in Surrey by members of the Burnaby RCMP for the attempted murder of Serjohn. At the time of his arrest he was found to be in possession of a Glock pistol that was later forensically linked to the Burnaby shooting and a second shooting a month later in Vancouver for which the accused also faces charges."

"The Crown’s theory is that before the second shooting the accused had spoken by phone to a youth charged in the murder of a man at Burnaby in September 2014. The accused allegedly conspired to murder Khurram Dar, a witness who was at the scene of the fatal shooting of Aladdin Ramadan."

"On Dec. 20, 2016, the accused is alleged to have gone to Dar’s home in the 2200-block Hermon Drive in Vancouver. When the accused arrived at the home and knocked on the door, it was answered by Dar’s mother, Hamara Jat, according to the Crown. After being told that Dar was not home, the accused allegedly shot the mother multiple times at close range, severing her spinal cord and leaving her paralyzed from the chest down." That is messed up.

OK so a 16 year old was charged with the fatal shooting of Aladdin Ramadan at Brentwood Mall in Burnaby, Sept 2014. A 16 year old was later charged with conspiring to murder a witness in that shooting and shot the witness' mother instead. Jesse Cadman lobbied for changes to the young offenders act. One of those changes was for youth who committed violent crime like murder, could be tried as an adult. The other change was that they could also be named. This kid needs to be named in the interest of public safety.

Israeli Prime Minister avoids corruption charges by threatening war with Iran

Last week the New York Times reported that "The Israeli police recommended on Tuesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu be charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust, casting a pall over the future of a tenacious leader who has become almost synonymous with his country. The announcement instantly raised doubts about his ability to stay in office." At the time he refused to step down and vowed to run again next term.

Today the smoke and mirror magician announced he is going to make all those charges disappear by declaring war with Iran. He figures blaming Iran for conflict the CIA has started in Syria will be a great distraction from his corruption charges. You can fool some of the people some of the time but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.

On that note, today some coworkers told me to watch a movie called Wag the Dog. They said I'd really like it. It's about a president who creates a fake war to distract voters from his own scandal. I pointed to the paper and said that's exactly what's happening here.

Jeremiah was a bullfrog. They didn't like what he had to say so they threw him in jail. Then everything Jeremiah the prophet said came true and Israel was carried away captive into Babylon until Cyrus the Great set them free. They say in Rome, pride cometh before the fall. Well the same thing is true in Israel and everywhere else. Buyer Beware.

Jerusalem, O Jerusalem, may God take from thee thine heart of stone and give to thee a heart of flesh so that you may see how your actions hurt others. Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy but God Damn the pusher man.

Is Facebook listening to your conversations?

An interesting conspiracy theory has made its way into the Main Stream Media. CTV is reporting that "Two friends are sitting in a coffee shop, discussing what they might wear to an upcoming holiday party. One of the women mentions that she’s been eyeing a dress from a well-known fashion brand. On her way home an hour later, the other woman scrolls through Facebook on her phone and sees an ad for the same dress her friend had described. Sound familiar?"

"If you type 'Are Facebook and Instagram listening to me?' into a search browser, you’ll find reams of articles, blog posts and podcasts, all speculating that social media apps are using the microphones on personal tech devices to listen in on conversations, then serving up ads based on what they hear. How else to explain an ad for tents popping up in your Facebook feed after casually mentioning to your partner that you two should go camping next summer?"

I had never heard of this until someone recently told me they had the exact same experience. Obviously Facebook denies it is listening to people's private conversation through their cell phones but we have to ask, why are all these people experiencing the same thing? They talk about something in a private conversations then they start seeing adds involving the topics they were talking about in their private conversations appear on their facebook.

We all know that the NSA listens in on private conversations through cell phone microphones. That was revealed by Edward Snowden and accurately depicted in the Snowden movie. While working for the NSA, Snowden was shown how to use a search engine to search for people using specific keywords in their private conversations. When he asked what people the search engine database was searching he was told, the whole kingdom Snow White. Everyone.

To think that businesses would be using that technology to advertise is somewhat disturbing. Yet it is somewhat difficult to explain the reoccurring coincidences. Here's the kicker: Facebook owns Instagram. Conspiracy Theorists Claim Mark Zuckerberg Is David Rockefeller’s Grandson.

Fatal shooting in Coquitlam

The Tri City News is reporting that "One man is dead after shots were fired Friday night in Coquitlam. Police were called to the 2700-block of Sylvan Place, off of Riverview Crescent, just after 10 p.m. after a report that multiple shots had been fired and a vehicle was seen speeding away. According to a press release from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, “When officers arrived, they found a man with gunshot wounds inside a vehicle. The male victim was transported to hospital but succumbed to his injuries." Global is reporting that "A dark-coloured sedan was found on fire nearby at Mariner Way and Dartmoor Drive."

The Peace arch News is reporting that "There was a reported shooting in Newton Friday night. Police were on scene after reports of gunfire around 11 p.m. in the 13200-block of 62nd Avenue. Footage from the scene shows what look like bullet fragments on the road."

Russell Bidesi found guilty of second-degree murder of Bradley McPherson

The Surrey Now / Leader is reporting that "Russell Atma Bidesi, 26, has been found guilty of second-degree murder in connection with the shooting of a Surrey man at a Christmas Eve party in 2011. The conviction comes more than six years after the fatal shooting 28-year-old Bradley McPherson at a house party near 131 Street and 67A Avenue."

This is the case that I was referring to when I said I wasn't going to comment on it until the trial was over because there was obviously more to the story than was presented in court. However, Russell Bidesi was the shooter so I remained silent and will continue to do so. The powers that be know the concerns that I have and they know those concerns are valid. It's time to bring back the OMGU. That's all that I have to say on the matter.

Tolls are an unfair burden on overtaxed motorists

Gordzilla nailed it. Which just goes to show that although no two people agree on every issue, no two people disagree on every issue either. Gordon Clark wrote an insightful column stating that Tolls are an unfair burden on overtaxed motorists. He's absolutely right. The NDP were elected on a promise to remove bridge tolls. For them to turn around and create another toll to replace it would be an act of fraud. Speaking of fraud who fed Derek Corrigan the poison cool aid?

Derek Corrigan replaced Mayor Moonbeam as chair of the Mayors’ Council because he had a more conservative approach to the Translink Fraud that consumed Mayor Moonbeam and Betty Botox. They were the tax and spend ring leaders. Stars of Junkets R Us. So what happened? Why has Derek Corrigan changed his tune and started to sing fiscal irresponsibility? Ah, they gave him a free trip to South Korea. Now he's a junket star too trying to think up ways to raise taxes and spend more money so he can go on junkets with the rest of them. Shame on you.

Every district has wish lists. Two projects proposed for Surrey are replacing the Pattullo bridge and creating an infrastructure nightmare along 104th with the brain dead LRT fraud. Of those two projects which has the highest priority? Replacing the Pattullo bridge. That thing is very old. You can't do both projects at the same time. That would be insane.

We need to pick a project, start it and hold off on the other one. Surrey wants the government to be fiscally responsible. Replacing the Pattullo bridge isn't urgent but it is a far bigger priority than this LRT scam which is just plain stupid.

People who drive cars prefer Skytrain to LRT because Skytrain does not impede traffic. People who drive cars should have a say because they pay an extra billion dollars a year in a 10 cents a litre regional gas tax. No private company would be allowed to continue operating a billion dollars over budget every year. I'm not saying do away with the regional gas tax. I'm saying stop it at that and no more tolls. The best way to save money is to disband all these committees mandated to think up new ways to raise taxes and spend money.

50% of addicts on the Surrey Strip want to get into detox but can't

The Peace Arch News is reporting that "Study reveals sobering truths about drug use on Surrey’s 135A Street." A KPU professor studying drug addiction on the Surrey strip states that "The only city in B.C. with a higher overdosed death toll than Surrey was Vancouver, which saw 348 fatalities last year." The lethal injection sites are promoting addiction which is resulting in an increase in overdose deaths in Vancouver and Surrey. That much is clear.

“Number one: in terms of the racial mix of people who find themselves in this very problematic substance use, roughly half are self identified as Caucasian, but the other half, about 45 per cent, self-identify as Indigenous or other,” he said. “There is a lot of First Nation representation in terms of problematic substance use on 135A street.” Actually we do not know that. All we know from the survey is half the drug addicts are white and the other half are something else.

“In terms of detox, in terms of solutions, the people who find themselves with problematic substance use who live hopelessly on 135A in these tents, many have also sought treatment or detox. So about 60 per cent of these people who live in those tents of 135A street find themselves there after going though detox or treatment, not for lack of wanting.”

That's because other than the one run by Price Pro, the detox centers in Surrey are flop houses where addicts do drugs. Drug dealers are known to hang out at the treatment houses and sell drugs while the police do nothing to stop them. Seizing the proceeds of crime without disrupting drug trafficking is a criminal act.

"In the survey, more than half of respondents said they wanted to go into detox or treatment, but were unable." That's because the extremists and the corrupt politicians have thrown away the three crucial pillars in the four pillars program and have turned harm prevention into harm promotion which simply promotes addiction and assists organized crime.

Harm Promotion on the Surrey Strip cost taxpayers $288,000.00. Enforcing the law and arresting the drug deals at the Surrey treatment centers and on the Surrey strip would cost nothing and prevent lifetimes of misery and exploitation. That would save lives.

"While addicts are people and have rights, so do all the other people in the area have the right to a neighbourhood that is clean, free of open drug dealing, with sidewalks and lit streets."

A space to shoot up, but no space for addiction treatment
