On the 6 o'clock news as the headliner on CTV and A-Channel news, they featured the racially motivated attack that was committed last week.
One of the attackers was arrested and release. Sad thing is, according to the news report on A-Channel, charges will only be made on future arrests. But on CTV, they said that the police are expecting more charges.
Although one suspect was arrested, the two others are still in hiding.
Some people are saying that Jay should have been a bigger man and should have just walked away. But when people are calling you Nigger from the back of a pickup truck, your freedom is being taken away. Just like countless people before who were once victim to this degradation, I believe people should stand up so that they won't be bullied again.
Of course violence should be the last measure, but isn’t being verbally assaulted by hate mongering racist serious enough to put your life on the line to defend everyone’s freedom? Even if Jay just walked away and filed a police report, what would have come from that?
I’ll tell you what would happen. It would have been given to a rookie RCMP officer to follow-up on. There would have been too many red F1-50’s in the Valley to visit. Even if they did find the truck that was used in the assault, the people he interview would not be willing to co-operate anyways. Frustrated with his/her progress, this police report would have been shoved away and never seen again. Also, if it wasn’t for all the yelling, this incident would not had been witnessed by the whole world.
