Well yesterday morning I was worried. There was a murder here on the long weekend, particularly vicious. Word was the girl was gang raped, severely mutilated, drugs were involved, and up to four people were suspected but no one was talking. That’s what I heard from the victim’s sister and the woman who placed the call to police.
Our local paper had an article on ‘how lovely the memorial was’ and how our community stood together but only a paragraph on police investigation was ongoing. The PG paper was getting annoyed because RCMP were not saying anything. The rumours got to the point of ‘sexualty assulted with a knife’, witnesses afraid to talk, ‘everyone knows but the cops are doing nothing’…
Well yesterday someone told me that it was all BS. The woman had simply swallowed a dealer’s drugs so the slit her open to get them back.
WELL THAT’S DIFFERENT! Gee I was getting worried for my 17 yr old daughter’s safety! I guess this was just cost efficiency, it was easier to kill her and carve out the dope than waste 24 hrs until she shit it out!
We also had a young guy die at his stag. He was duct-taped to a chair with a funnel in his mouth and alcohol was poured down his throat until he ended up aspirating. RCMP are quoted in the paper as saying no foul play is suspected.
Common factor? BOTH VICTIMS WERE NATIVE and both happenned on the rez.
Come on people this is 2004 and I don’t want people treated differently because of their race or heritage or ‘cultural values’. It disgusts me in the same way that waiting until like 60 hookers were killed until the ball got rolling. People are people and the worst crime in the book is to kill people, regardless of their race, sex or occupation. Murderers are the scum of the earth, and NOT YOUR FRIENDS. You rat them out, like the dogs they are. Sometimes you have to have the balls to call them out EVEN IF THEY THREATEN YOU. There is NO HONOUR in keeping silent ONLY SHAME.
