...to be fair, it could have been a warrant executed on 834 Johnson, after all.

:P  :P  :P  :P  :P

 I mean, to be fair, it could have been a warrant executed on 834 Johnson, after all.

That's not being "fair" now ... is it?

 

When it's guaranteed that absolutely nobody living at 834 Johnson leaves their door open, has $25,000.00 in cash sitting on a table, a crap-load of crack, and half the apartment filled with stolen goods.

 

No ... we all know exactly what building it was, it's just the cops have been told not to ever note the actual address in anticipation of the "told you so" backlash that would be inevitable when regular folks saw the same address a dozen times every month ... each time related to serious criminality.

Speaking of which... was there anymore news about reports of pellet gunfire emanating from an unidentified multi-unit residential building on the 800 block of Johnson a week or so back? No idea which building it was, of course, but wanted to know if reports were confirmed.

there was one a week or so..i think there has been 3 or 4 in total.. i guess it had been awhile and someone wanted to remind people that a pellet gun was still in the building..

These incidents are now so routine they don't make the MSM reports at all.  :whyme:

Well today was certainly, um..."unusual" coming out of the office after work; walked around the corner and straight into an older guy - clearly with "issues", rambling on about "them" and how he was going to "take care of them", whoever them is - as he was in process of firing up a chainsaw, one very much in working condition. Not sure who was more surprised, me or him.

 

A couple of other guys joined in and the three of us managed to persuade him to turn the damn thing off and dismantle it. Needless to say the onlookers at the Yates/Douglas bus stop were a pretty stunned and scared lot. I had to hop on my bus as I needed to be elsewhere but saw a few people on their phones by then, presumably calling 9-1-1. Downtown really is quite the circus and in broad daylight. Can't imagine what its like at night. Sheesh.....

But they should we shouldn’t get too complacent about our misunderstood residents in Victoria.
It makes it too easy to doctor records ,claim victories with addicts and make the mayor look like her ideas work for all citizens.
Policing looks effective poverty pimps look even better.

Oh wow. Just for kicks, you should watch Jim Jefferies' latest special on Netflix (but skip the first half and get to the gun control part, trust me on that). He goes on a spiel comparing guns to chainsaws...

Perfect place for a polling station...

A victim suffered minor injuries in a reported assault with a weapon near Our Place on Pandora Avenue on Saturday night.
