Skip to comments.No charges yet in mob attack on drug house (Canada)

The three police officers on duty at the time were unable to break up the brawl, or prevent the arson, as members of the larger group apparently prevented firefighters from attending to the blaze by blocking the road with their trucks and screaming at them to let it burn.
Both groups were also armed with guns, knives and baseball bats; some shots were fired, but no one was struck, although four male residents of the home were badly beaten.

People taking back their neighborhoods.....it is a good thing!
I saw this story yesterday.
I still have no problems with what these fishermen did.
It's unfortunate that in today's society vigilante justice
has to be resorted to.
I suspect that as long as there aren't enough police around or we have judges and local officials that can't or won't see the problem, there'll be more of this.
I was born and raised in Detroit. If people had done this thirty years ago there might be a city left today.
So far, so good. One crack house burned. Four drugdealers severely beaten. Keep on truckin'!
"It's unfortunate that in today's society vigilante justice

And your point is? Is it better to hide your head in the sand and let the police make the rules? Good on these citizens. Do it every day, every province, every state, take back your country and send the message to parliament and legislature who it is that gets extorted for taxes and casts the votes.
No, I didn't say that. I didn't infer that.
Please read my post again.
"So far, so good"
Maybe the social worker quoted in the article can let slip some addresses.
"But there are other places. I can walk by them when I'm out for my walk. They're well-known to the community and to the RCMP."
I doubt if their investigation is going to get anywhere because whoever they accuse will probably have an alibi saying they weren't even there. That's how it works in small towns when the people can no longer trust the government to take care of it.
Have you seen this site? Sad.
"The Fabulous Ruins of Detroit"
This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished, as the once vital voice of the verisimilitude now venerates what they once vilified. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose vis-à-vis an introduction, and so it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V. - V for Vendetta. Alan Moore.
That is undoubtedly one of the best-designed websites I have seen in quite a while -- but with one of the saddest subjects...
Over twenty years ago, I took a break from a professional meeting at the Renaissance Towers, and took a stroll "into Detroit". I was unarmed; I made it one block -- and beat a hasty retreat to the hotel...
Thank you for the link to the Detroit picture. They brought back many memories and a few tears.
Hudson's had the "real Santa"
Sanders' hot fudge sundaes in the basement of Hudsons, I think.
Milroy's fish and chips were the best.
(dynachrome shows his age)
and i still cant see the downside to these actions.
