My City Under Siege

I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve been somewhat negligent in getting any kind of posts up over these past few days. And for what it’s worth, this is probably going to be the only post from me this week.

Why? Because what I do on this site isn’t that important in the bigger picture.

Tonight – June 4, 2014 –  Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, a city that I am proud to call home, has fallen under the tragic siege of a deranged individual who I refuse to mention by name. This fucking lowlife asshole killed three police officers and wounded at least two others. And as of now (1:45 am on June 5, 2014), he has not been captured.

How dare you make my kids and countless others in the city fear for their lives? How dare you snuff out the lives of those who protect us from people like you?

It is not often that Moncton makes national news let alone international news. But sites like CNN, the BBC and more are all reporting on your deeds and have thrust our little town into the spotlight for all of the wrong reasons. Shit like this doesn’t happen in Moncton. At least it didn’t before you decided to play God. You have irrevocably scarred our city and I don’t know whether to be sad or angry about it.

Anger is winning out at the moment so I will say this:

You’re a cowardly fucking piece of trash. There is a spot in the deepest depths of hell reserved especially for you. You’ve earned it, asshole.

My sincere condolences to the fallen officers and their loved ones. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten. God bless you.

UPDATE – June 6, 2014

I am so happy to be able to report that the gunman was apprehended just after midnight last night. I don’t think the city will ever be able to express our gratitude to the RCMP, but especially to those members who gave their lives to protect the lives of others. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Be good to one another. Thanks for reading.
