Please pray for this man who was beaten for doing good

Please pray for this poor good man who was savagely beaten as he tried to stop this mindless destruction. More evidence Canada's so-called criminal justice system is failing us. The neo-Marxists come down hard on farmers who never broke a law in their life but refuse to register their guns and the court will incarcerate for years, grandmothers like Linda Gibbons, who peacefully protest in front of abortuaries. These idiots who are rioting for no particular cause have correctly assumed they will not be punished too severely for this behaviour.

Vancouver police chief admits mistakes made in riot

Vancouver’s chief of police admitted Friday he would have handled Wednesday’s riot differently, had he known then what he knows now.

“When you review the riot, even among my own officers, there’s lots of could-haves, should-haves,” Chief Jim Chu said at a news conference updating how the city is dealing with the aftermath of the violent mayhem that broke out after the Vancouver Canucks lost to the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final.

“Knowing what I know now, there’s many things I would’ve done differently,” Chu said when asked whether cars should been banned from streets in the downtown core during the game — something that was suggested in an analysis commissioned by the B.C. government in the wake of the 1994 riot that followed another Canucks loss in a Stanley Cup final.

While Chu did not explicitly say he would have kept cars away, he did say he would have put more officers on duty in the outdoor area where a crowd of about 100,000 people watched the game on big-screen TVs.

Chu said authorities are working to prosecute those involved in the riot. He said charges of arson, mischief, unlawful assembly and participation in a riot are pending for at least one male, who will be identified once charges are laid.

Meanwhile, RCMPin the Vancouver suburb of Burnaby, B.C., said a 17 year-old was brought into a detachment by family members who saw images of him looting on the Internet.

Police said this person, who cannot be identified because his age, is facing charges of break, enter and theft, and mischief to property over $5,000 in relation to the looting of a Louis Vuitton store and the destruction of a police car that was overturned.

Nine officers were injured and two police cars were destroyed by fire in Wednesday’s riot.

One bright note ended a bruising week for the Vancouver Police: officers found one of their cruisers on Granville Street Friday covered from roof to fenders in sticky notes by citizens expressing gratitude for their efforts.

“You did protect us,” reads a message from Port Coquitlam, B.C.’s Janice Staryk. “It’s humbling and overwhelming that the awful deeds of a few . . . are not going to outweigh all the good of the people here in this city.”

Well-wisher Ronnie Sidhu couldn’t quite put her feelings into words, so she sealed her note with a kiss.

“(The support) really says a lot about Vancouver,” said Sidhu. “For the most part, people are truly proud of the spirit that’s showing through.”

Acting Sgt. Chad Machuik said he appreciates the kind words, and so do his colleagues.

“I’ve spoken to many officers and they’re really grateful. They thank everyone for their support and it’s nice to see,” he said.
