Free Idea for Daley

Vancouver is having nothing but problems in the run-up to the Winter Games in 2010 due to a huge gang war:
  • Even as Vancouver prepares to host the 2010 Winter Games, its crime rate is going up. Since January alone, there have been 45 shootings in the region, 17 of them fatal. There were 58 murders last year in this region of 2.7 million people, up from 41 the year before, according to the regional Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.
While the flare up in "gun free" Canada is not related to the Olympics, it doesn't bode well for tourists coming in for the Games. So to combat some of the more notorious drive-by violence, Vancouver authorities have been reduced to this:
  • Vancouver police are deterring drive-by shootings by setting up cement barricades outside of gangsters' homes.

    The temporary cement blocks sit in front of two houses in southeast Vancouver in the 1200-block of East 63rd Avenue and the 900-block of East 54th Avenue.

    Const. Jana McGuinness confirmed the barricades are to prevent drive-by shootings.

    [...] The barricades are meant to slow down people driving by the homes, deterring them from firing shots and speeding off.

    City engineer Murray Whiteman, who is responsible for street operations, said the barriers are a cost-effective way to curb gunplay.

Cost effective? That sounds like a dinner bell ringing to old "Blue Light Camera" Shortshanks! And they're oh so very attractive - almost as attractive as his center median planters!

No charge for the idea Richie.

See they couldn't set up those barriers here. Can you imagine how long it would take to get down some of the streets on the south & west side?

Could you imagine those things on these City streets like that........LOL....In between the Speed bumps etc.

We should just close the shittiest streets down and have gates like the railroad crossings with guard shacks admitting the neighbors with passes at each corner...So the crap can't ROLL THROUGH...

What NEXT for DUDE?

Disappear them, and I don't mean the barricades. Don't they have woodchippers?

And just what is the REAL problem, handguns? Maybe they should ban them. If you make guns illegal to own then no one will have one, right?

Does Walsh Construction make cement barricades?

Thursday's protests can be a Trifecta!

First- protest at city hall at 11 am, then in the afternoon the No Games Chicago protest and then head up to the Erie Cafe at 6 pm where the city's new plan to put a $500 millions dollar roof over two block of the kennedy and spend $377 million moving LSD for a bike path will be discussed.

I think the Olympic Committee might notice something that day!

http://www.suntimes.com/business/1503475,CST-NWS-action31.article#Comments_Container

The report will be discussed Thursday at an open meeting. It is scheduled for 6 p.m. at Erie Cafe, 536 W. Erie.

Why is it that EVERY time there's a problem, the Government Officials somehow want to punish the Law-Abiding Tax Payer, Gun Owner, etc; for the crimes of a few? Try growing a set, and going after the root of the problem, who all right-brained individuals know who that is.

How the fuck do those barricades affect ANYBODY who decides they're going to do a driveby at that location?

In fact, they act as signpost to the targets home. And does anybody actually think that somebody who is going to start firing a weapon from their vehicle is going to hesitate driving up on the lawn or sidewalk to do it.

Those barricades don't deter shit.

Quit complaining! This is "multiculturalism" at its best. They are violent criminals from India.

"(The) targeted residences are home to Udham Singh Sanghera, 58, and Gurpreet Singh Bains, 23.

Sanghera is the alleged patriarch of the Sanghera crime group, who police say is at war with the Buttar gang. He was arrested Feb. 23 through Project Rebellion and is facing several gun and ammunition charges.

Also arrested from the crime group was Robert Gordon Taylor and Sanghera’s son Bobby, who police say was wearing a bulletproof vest and had three guns in his car when he was taken down “in hunting mode.”

I have a small question: How about the drivee(not a typo just pure sarcasism) stoping while leaving driver's side open,walk up to Mr. Pretend Canandian gangster's residence and then sending a couple of rounds down range or down wind depending on your state of mind then re-entering auto and then scooting outta there.
