    Not related to this thread at all, but in a recent CFL game a player help eliminate the threat to their safety by assisting in taking the person down.

    It was nice to see that if someone breaks into your workplace that a colleague would help protect coworkers.

    There is no threat to their safety, bad example you could definetly find better examples

    Aside from the stray bullets, this seems like it's a self correcting problem.

    Gang on gang violence - good - let the problem sort itself out. The last summer of the gun ensured 13 years of relative peace.

    I agree for the most part, as long as there aren’t Jane Crebas or collateral playground kids.

    Check out this guy, https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/20...ootage-of-suspect-in-north-york-shooting.html As brazen and nonchalant as me going to get the milk.

    But if we don’t want to live like this forever, we need to determine the cause and address it. Maybe start with free contraception today for those likely to conceive the gangsters of the 2030s?

    That guy was at least legit. Used a cash transaction borrowed vehicle, hit his target successfully, and carried out the hit at a very smart time of day.

    Unfortunately, we have a lot of wannabe hit men in our midst and so the Crebas, Danzigs, and playgrounds will continue.

    So, as you say, we need to attempt a solution to the causes.

    As for the free contraception....it should be free anyway.....the problem is that some of the most prolific child-bearers are some of the people who should never be having kids. They aren't likely to take to free contraception en masse. Of course, targeted sterilisation is a road we don't even want to contemplate.
    So, we have to do better by the kids whose parents should never have brought them about.

    Jane creba caused the gang raids. Unfortunately you may need a sacraficial innocent white bystander.

    Yes, but the target was apparently not known to police, and could well have been an innocent, or even worse, someone trying to be a positive influence against gang culture, and thus representing a threat to be removed.

    That's a legit assumption. Yup, it's a bit of a mess.
