fatal vancouver shooting

January 20, 2008

another one? yup. last night, saturday, january 19, near au bar, the night club on seymour street in downtown vancouver, bc. i was at an art opening at a tattoo parlor right across the street from where the shooting happened. we were waiting for our friends to arrive, and we noticed police lights outside, decided to check it out, and there, just a few yards away, was a shot up SUV and two men lying on the curb, dead. the whole area was taped off by the police, and there were a ton of people standing around. the dead men were unceremoniously splayed out on the sidewalk, uncovered and face up for all to see. this was around 10:30 pm. soon after, a police officer began shouting at all the bystanders to move on, and we took his “advice”. it was a surreal experience, because i don’t feel that effected by the whole thing, but i just saw two men dead, recently violently killed. it feels like such an “urban” experience, like something so much a part of the modern city life. violence. death. murder.

I knew about Benazir Bhutto through a brief television interview I watched. I knew very little about her, so I will not write much. Perhaps it’s too much that I even post a blog about her. The picture is a link to an article on her assassination.
