Saskatchewan RCMP say 10 dead, 15 hospitalized after stabbings, suspects still at large | CBC News

 

Melfort RCMP have issued a provincewide dangerous persons alert after multiple people were stabbed in the James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon, Sask.

RCMP said in a press conference at 3:40 CT that they found 10 people deceased and at least 15 people have been hospitalized. RCMP said they found 13 incident locations in James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon.

"There may be additional injured victims who transported themselves to various hospitals," Rhonda Blackmore, commanding officer of the Saskatchewan RCMP, said.

"We are currently actively looking for [them], dedicating maximum resources to this."

RCMP said they received a report that the two suspects, identified as Damien Sanderson and Myles Sanderson, may have been travelling in the Arcola Avenue area in Regina. Regina Police said a possible sighting of the suspects was reported around 11:20 a.m.

An RCMP alert was first issued at 7:12 a.m. CT Sunday and has since had several updates. RCMP said two male suspects are believed to be in a black Nissan Rogue with Saskatchewan licence plate 119 MPI. As the suspects may have access to a vehicle, the RCMP have expanded the alert provincewide.

With the suspects at large, Blackmore said they had also asked for the alert to be extended to Manitoba and Alberta.

"At this point in time, we have no indication they travelled to another province," she said.

Nuts. 

Good thing there is gun control. Could be much much worse. 

 

 

 

 

Gun control won’t prevent criminals from getting firearms since illegal firearms are pretty abundant. That’s where the problems lie with shootings and gang violence here in Canada.

 

Have to crack down harder and harsher in that the illegal firearm regard. 
 

Knives have their own advantages in comparison to guns since you can get away with causing more damage and get away before people even realize. Hence why they killed 10 people and injured 15 in 13 locations and are still at large.

In addition, unless the government provides more funds to stop weapons smuggling. People aren't much safer than our previously existing laws. The nutjob in Nova Scotia. He did not have a firearms licence. All his weapons were from the States. And friends and family bought him ammo. None of the changes that has been done would have stopped him.

We're better off with more mental health funding and more boots on ground funding, to try to stem illegal firearms from coming into Canada. Higher sentences for gun and weapons smuggling might be in order too.

Time to quit playing nice with cold blooded killers. Re-instate the death penalty for 1st degree murderers. Waste of time and money trying to rehab them.

Create a new classification of multiple homicide. That life sentences are mandatory with no parole. And optional death penalty.

If they kill with illegal weapons they’re only given the chance to fight a death penalty in court only if they give up the people who sold them illegal weapons. Could kill two birds with one stone if they comply. 
 

Smuggling illegal weapons penalty that causes death or serious injury 20 years to potential life sentence. 

 

Smuggling illegal weapons penalty that had caused a potential for death or serious injury 10 to 20 years. 
 

See how many criminals/criminal organizations become keen on smuggling shit into Canada.

Mental health certainly helps get to the root of the problem.  You could save people before they commit evil. I believe some people are at fault of their circumstances in life but once they cross that line of sanity and morality to commit atrocity they get no pity from me. 
 

Gun reform/bans is too easy of a solution to solve such a complicated issue. It looks good but it hardly works in comparison to the harder solutions, like investing more into border security/task force, mental health issues and criminal punishment/penalty reform.

I also believe we should be able to have some sort of self-defence options out there. Like tasers and pepper spray. 
 

Just create penalties/punishment for misuse and have to have it registered with the police/government. Have an age limit. Make it attainable via government licensing/law enforcement school/criminal justice school. 
 

Neither probably wouldn’t help vs a shooter but both(taser/pepper spray) had the potential to help here. 
 

Things like this can happen within seconds when police can only get to you within minutes.

As far as I am concerned these 1st degree premeditated murderers do not deserve a nice cozy jail cell.  Have them dig their own grave and bang... one bullet.

What if we stick them in a cell, and force them to listen to nickelback for the rest of their lives?

Both sounds better to me.
