You know folks, some of the stuff I read I just shake my head, as you know I wrote about Wiebo Ludwig, the alleged Ecana bomber, and, it is my opinion that this was nothing but a fishing expedition, the RCMP and the Campbell government are held in such low regard that this arrest,press conference was nothing but a public relations exercise.
( Breaking news happened after I posted(I posted at 8:35 PM), there are shocking updates at the bottom of this story,an update at 11:00PM...Update at 12:35 AM....Update at 1:00 AM)
OK, so you think I might be a little paranoid, time will tell when they release Wiebo Ludwig without charges, anyways, I was glancing through some of the Canwest (fish wrap) newspapers tonight and I ran across this story headlining on the front page in the Sun,the Province and the Victoria times paper, the story is titled :Informants destroying B.C. gangs from the inside out, expert:
The expert who is quoted in this story is Darryl Plecas, an Abbotsford professor with lots of awards,degrees, and he is the Chair of the RCMP learning center, I wonder if he is related to Bob Plecas, ah but I digress, the headline alone sent my alarm bell ringing, so I read this story(comic) and I can`t believe what he said, Plecas states that gang members are turning on themselves, reeking havoc internally, Plecas mentions Clay Rouche, Clay was arrested by the American justice system on drug and money laundering charges and received a 30 year sentence(which he is appealing).....Plecas goes onto say that since Some upper level gang bangers have been caught that the gangs have had to recruit new inexperienced bangers and these new bangers are easily scared and are ratting out upper members of the gangs.
Lets cut to the chase with this story, the RCMP are so desperate for a good news story that now they are manufacturing good news stories, and they use Plecas with all his degrees and awards to pimp the story, and friends this whole story is nothing but a public soother and PAB trick, and, Darryl Plecas is connected with the RCMP, he chairs the RCMP learning center.
First off, this isn`t the police saying this, this is a so-called professor, is Plecas being kept up to speed by the RCMP? If he is, is that kosher? I don`t think so, and, think about it, if bangers are destroying the gangs of B.C. from the inside out through informing(ratting out) why would you tell the world that this was going on? If it was true would you want the gang leaders to know about it? I don`t think so, kill the golden goose, uh uh, and there is more, if there are gangs with lots of new recruits what`s going to happen? Who is going to get killed? get shot? Get set -up, you see if this story is true and informants are ratting out their bosses, and if gang leaders or upper echelon gang members are getting busted and they didn`t know why they are getting busted......Well now Professor Plecas(brain surgeon) you have just let the cat out of the bag and I would expect to have some shootings in the very near future!
You see folks, this story in my opinion is nothing but the RCMP still fishing for a story to hang their hats on, especially since Jamie Bacon`s brother has no charges against him and the court is going to rule on Thursday that the warrant they used on Jamie Bacon was invalid,not to mention they got caught taping and listening in on Jamie Bacon and his lawyer, talk about amateurs, (Look friends,I am no friend of bacon or bangers,I think their scum but that`s not the issue)
So the police are looking for feel good stories to soothe the public because Bacon and Wiebo Ludwig will be free.(Read the story here) http://www.theprovince.com/news/Informants+destroying+gangs+from+inside+Expert/2433598/story.html
Anyways, story after story about drugs, money, crime,how many gang murders have the RCMP solved, I read a story last week about how the youth and hard drug users can get dope in minutes anywhere in Metro Vancouver, the eastside of Vancouver has drug dealers everywhere, every block there is dope, heck they are allowed to carry Crack and heroin and go shoot up at :Insite: and they are going to do a legal heroin study in Vancouver, and Metro Vancouver is the hard drug, crystal meth,crack cocaine ,ecstacy capital of Canada, drug addicted sex workers all over the city, all over Nanaimo, drugs everywhere in Victoria,the fraser valley,the interior, not to mention the marijuana grow ops, estimated 6 billion dollar a year industry.(you can read Darryl Plecas`s credentials here,including his ties to the RCMP)

Yet Darryl Plecas comes out with this story, who is he trying to convince,himself, the gullible public, maybe the story is for the olympic visitors or the press core, we wouldn`t want the world to see our shame, of course our ugliness will be swept out of site for three weeks, so who is this story for? I suspect it`s a little of both, I just hope this story doesn`t start another shooting gallery, if it does, whose conscience will it be on? And lastly, if I was a gang banger I would fear a retaliation death sentence far more than I would fear the Canadian justice penal system!
(Updated at 11:00 PM Tuesday, 90 minutes after my post.....A man was shot in the chest in Vancouver tonight,the story had only a few details, it was in the west end, I hope for your sake Darryl Plecas that this shooting isn`t gang related,like I said, you might just start a shooting gallery, how`s your conscience feeling Plecas) read the story here http://www.vancouversun.com/news/shot+downtown+Vancouver/2434430/story.html
(Updated again tonight at 12: 35 AM......I just clicked the link above and mysteriously the Vancouver sun states "The story is no longer available" I suspect that the powers that be pulled the story because it`s a downtown(Olympic city) Vancouver murder story, I will look for more information, maybe they were wrong,maybe it wasn`t a shooting,why wouldn`t the story then say,with new information we discovered it wasn`t a shooting) Anyways, the story said a man in an older apartment (The Chelsea) was shot in the chest, police and ambulances were in front of the building according to a witness, the witness wasn`t sure whether the victim was still alive. Something fishy going on here....Vanoc, could it be that Vanoc and the IOC ordered the story buried? As you can see from the above link, the link states....SHOT +DOWNTOWN+VANCOUVER.....Curious.
(Updated again at 1:00 AM.....I called St Paul hospital to get information on the shooting,it was a shot in the dark, St Pauls hospital is the closest hospital to the shooting, the main switchboard transfered me to emergency department, I asked the woman who answered if the shooting victim from the west end was brought there, she said....." You will have to call the police for any information on the shooting" snip.....I then said to her, I`m a reporter with the Straight Goods, are you saying you won`t give me any information on the shooting?.....To which she responded......"No,I can`t give you any information on the shooting".....And with that the phone call ended........Well my friends, the lack of an answer spoke volumes, I tricked her into saying ...."I can`t give you any information on the shooting".......Like I said, it`s obvious to me that Vanoc, on the 30 day count down to the Olympics, with a worldwide Olympic push, they have shut down the bad news from Vancouver. You see folks, with the 30 day countdown being blasted around the world, people looking up information on Vancouver would hear about the shooting, is this what Vancouver is turning into, news being surpressed,news that the public has a right to know,news that has public safety implications?
If I get any new information I will keep updating,if any of my faithful readers and contributors hear anything,don`t hesitate in posting a comment.
