Unearthed Facebook Photos Caught Attention of the CVCJC

Photos that surfaced on Facebook showed two of the accused with racist imagery, and has now has caught the attention of the Comox Valley Community Justice Centre. Although they say blogging and social media falls outside the way they operate, it's a medium that they need to embrace.

I had some reservations about posting these pictures, but ultimately, I felt these racist attitudes by some of the young people in our community should be brought to light. And that it was in the best interest of the public safety to know that these men socialize and practice racist culture.

If Judge Peter Dorthey does rule that this altercation was racially motivated, I also wanted to show people how practicing these racist behaviors can affect young people later in life.
