They probably weren't even from there.

For some reason I thought this was going to be an "attacked with a beaver" story. The reality was disappointing.

It is scary to see someone disregard the rules like that. Doesn't she know she could get 2:00 in the box for high sticking?

Yeah, French should have been a tennis racquet, American a baseball bat, British a cricket bat, and the Italian example should have the "attacker" running up and then lying on the ground clutching his/her knee attempting to appeal to the non-existent ref.

The Jets should sign her immediately. They need an enforcer.

That's pasta the line, subby...

Blood drawn, that's 4 mins.

Um, subby, tomatoes came to Europe from the New World (and for decades, some folks sais no, because they were related to belladonna).
 
2020-07-07 6:33:05 PM  
I've seen better faceoffs.

Subby, an American would get beaten with a double cheese burger.
 
2020-07-07 6:34:51 PM  
So I guess if they had poured water on him as he laid in the road, it would have been okay?

Assholes lying in the road in front of cars is not a protest.  It's against the law.

Subby misspelled "plate of bacon".
 
2020-07-07 6:42:11 PM  
Well she is surely sorry anyway

Landry, who has filed a statement with police, said he's not calling the attack an act of racism, but he is not ruling out that it may have been racially motivated.
He said he hopes there will be some kind of restorative justice for those involved.


Kudos. Were I to be in the same position I can't say I'd be nearly as forgiving.

I didn't know that meth heads with hockey sticks and an encyclopedia racial slurs were proper arbiters of law enforcement.

Open up that can and make some marinara to dip the baguette into already.

Agreed! Those protesters should have been summarily executed! LAW AND ORDER!

This is terrible and I am embarrassed by racist Canadians. :(

...so in the article's picture they blurred the face of the perpetrator but left the victims faces unblurred.

Is this some Canadian thing I'm not aware of, or are they just being overly cautious because the perp didn't sign a waiver?

A little bit of both. The article mentions that they haven't been charged with a crime yet and nobody knows if they were minors.

hmm ya protesting inequality in Canada is kinda stupid of course there is less $ in minority hands 98% of minority came to the country in the last like 40 years.

new immigrant can get like 45k $ to setup a biz , regular Canadian get 0$
so for regular blue collar guy (aka got 0$ at start) it's a harder start then a new immigrant.

Also Winnipeg ... who in their right mind immigrates to Winnipeg, it's only a upgrade if you where living in a small rural community in the north.

Wait.... Indigenous rights also?
How come Canada always do it better than us??

Weird, just today I was met with furious anger from Canadians about how anger just could not happen in Canada.  I was wondering why the angry posts had stopped.

It's fairly standard not to name or post unaltered pics of people who have not been charged or may be under age, but it can vary by publication. The Winnipeg Free Press has unblurred photos and the video. If they are charged and they are adults the CBC will likely unblur the video.

The reasons vary, liability mainly. If they are minors they can't legally (in most circumstances the names of minors are protected even after conviction) identify them in any way.

Makes sense. It just struck me as odd, because the video looked like a pretty clear cut case of assault, and when similar incidents are caught on video in the US the news doesn't usually go to similar lengths to protect the assailant's identity. At least from what I recall.

He, or she, might have to have their head in shame at least. Personally subby should've gone used porchetta, maybe Bistecca alla Fiorentina, or maybe Prosciutto.

I don't know if it was massive, but the USA did have a residential school system designed to obliterate native culture.

Because there aren't enough black folks to mistreat up there, so they take it out on First Nations folks, then feign a sense of moral superiority.

That's ridiculous. We also have Asians and....well I forgot my colour card in my other pants but just refer to historical Trump tweets for a list.
