RCMP Officer Shot in Manitoba

Recommended Posts

Rural property crime is a major problem on the prairies. This looks to  be the case in this situation in which an RCMP officer was shot while responding to a call in rural Manitoba. Luckily the shot was not fatal and the officer will survive. It seems like this is a small resort style town on the edge of a national park. Not many details on the suspects have been released. I feel for people in rural areas who are vulnerable and often don't have quick responses from police due to vast areas police are responsible for. Urban elites maybe don't realize that police response is not instant on the prairies.

That's true of most rural areas, not just the prairies. Our town has 140,000 people but a large part of it is rural. Our police call the most western rural area the wild west. Not because it is but because they just don't have the bodies to patrol it and can only respond to calls.

Here's the latest on this case. 4 suspects have been charged.

Sandy Hook First Nation.   So they were Ojibwa.

Archaic paternalistic Victorian nanny state Indian Act to seize the property rights of Indians, has resulted in culture of dependency ghettos and associated gangsterism.

Not much can be done about it, as governance in Canada is too corrupt and dysfunctional to solve any problem.

 

It's just the price of failed state Confederation;  Keep the French in,  keep the Americans out,  keep the Indians down.
