I’ll say right up front that I was already a bit fired up from last night’s viewing of Why We Fight when I took to this morning’s news. And yet I still can’t believe that nobody’s making a bigger deal about this…
Buried deep in this CTV Story following up on Ontario’s worst-ever mass murder is the bombshell that after tailing the eight soon-to-be-victims to the farm where they were later executed, Durham Regional Police officers simply up and left.
Once again, after previously targeting this group as having ties to the Bandidos biker gang, and suspecting that a major drug deal was about to take place, the Durham Regional Police decided to leave.
The explanation given was that the cops assumed the bikers were attending a party; the only reasonable explanation I can come up with is that they were paid off to look the other way. Of course that’s pure speculation, but if I were covering this story I don’t think I would accept such a lame excuse by law enforcement without at least a follow-up question or two!
Chalk it up to our trademark Canadian apathy, I guess… We’ll bitch and moan about anything, but when it comes time for action or accountability we fall inexplicably silent.
