Think of the Joy - the Shadenfreude - it gave the CBC News Room!!!
You have got to be kidding. Regardless of bias, you can't actually think that members of the CBC news teams would be cheering the death of anyone. Can you?
YES!! Ok not right out loud but they constantely show their resentful bias towards the U.S. From openly asking if the U.S. deserved 9/11 (like those office workers or their families deserved anything besides a paycheck for being there.) To Rick Mercier's "Talking to Americans" (bet if you ask arround Toronto your get the same dumb ass answers from Canadians)
I'd love to see the Canadian reaction if we heard the same from them....
This is tragic that some young men are hurt and killed because they want to have a bit of fun....but that's as far as it goes...It continually happens but the attention is paid to it since this case can be used for another cause....If this were 2 Indian's in Winnipeg, you would not even have heard about it out side of the local broadcast!!
I heard on the Radio a few minutes ago an Official Police Press Release about the murder, it appears that the American Sailor was a good samaritan who wasn't involved in the fight he tried to break up two waring fractions and got stabbed in the meelee. A male 23 years of age has been charged with First Degree Murder, which no doubt will be reduced to "Manslaughter".
The fact that this gentleman carried a knife on his person tells me he wasn't exactly a choir boy. Nova Scotia has never had a problem with Americans or American Service Men, the US is usually our training partners in Military Exercises and there is a fair amount of good natured ribbing and teasing but in 20 years I never once saw an episode of violence amoungs our members. The British yes but not the yanks.
The man arrested for the murder has a history of stabbings. Two years ago he was sentenced in NS to 67 months in jail for stabbing a man outside a barbershop 14 times he also attacked this man's girl friend and stabbed her. At the time of sentencing he was granted double credit for time served so he did 41 months. Today he was let out of jail on bail for first degree murder, what a justice system we have.
