Why did the RCMP exclude the war memorial footage?
"Sensitivity for the deceased" is a bogus excuse. We have seen shooting footage aplenty in Canada.
Why did the RCMP exclude the footage from the war memorial?
Has anyone seen footage from the war memorial?
Just an FYI: The RCMP has a reputation for corruption- despite the silly and often promoted version of red coated men on their horses
The shooter was supposed to have shot the guard at the memorial at least 3 times, 2 at point blank range. Before allegedly "raising his arms in triumph"
Four people were injured and one man died Wednesday, after a shooter — identified as 32-year-old Canadian Michael Zehaf-Bibeau — attacked the National War Memorial in downtown Ottawa. According to the Huffington Post, Zehaf-Bibeau, wearing black clothes and a scarf over his face, shot one of the Memorial’s guards several times at point-blank range before raising his hands “in triumph.”
The gun he used, seem to be an unusual choice of weapon for this situation- A shot gun commonly used for deer hunting?
|The Winchester 94 most typically contains seven rounds, and must be racked between shots|
The Winchester Model 94 is perhaps the most common and recognizable deer-hunting rifle in North America.
Advanced by the standards of 1894, it holds a maximum of eight rounds, but more normally seven, stored end-to-end in a tube under the barrel. It is not semi-automatic; the lever must be racked between shots.
Unlike more modern rifles that can be reloaded with a clip or magazine containing multiple rounds, the Winchester, once empty, must be painstakingly reloaded round-by-round, inserting the cartridges into a small port on the side of the receiver. The process takes an experienced shooter about 30 seconds -- an eternity in the kind of shootout that took place inside Centre Block.
The RCMP confirmed yesterday that Zehaf-Bibeau fired three shots at the National War Memorial: two at Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and one at the other soldier in the honour guard.
Aha, so there were two guards at the memorial! I had noticed people were questioning the whereabouts of this other guard..... So, where was he? Who is he?
From the CBC article
If his attack was indeed "inspired by ISIS propaganda"... why was he so 'discriminating in his choice of targets'?
"First, he allowed the driver of a government car he hijacked to escape. A few seconds later, he exited the car at the front doors of Centre Block, only metres from a group of three individuals. Again, he did not open fire"Not bothering to fire on three easy targets at Centre Block ? Seems odd for an ISIS inspired rampaging "terrorist", doesn't it? Never mind all the people has passed by when ran from his car?
Strange. Really strange.
Quoting from CBC article directly- "If his attack was indeed inspired by ISIS propaganda, it seems unlikely that he would have been so discriminating in his choice of targets"
Claimed ISIS propaganda quoted- "If you can kill a disbelieving American or European … or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war … then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be," said al-Adnani.
"Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military, for they have the same ruling. Both of them are disbelievers."
In other words, the shooter was not and could not have been inspired by "ISIS propaganda" which called for indiscriminate killing of all disbelievers. Because he spared a number of disbelievers. Quite a number, in fact.
