51 shootings in Surrey, Canada in 2016. 51 stories – some crooks or wannabes, some innocents in the wrong place – but all with families that either grieve or continue to worry about them.
The RCMP needs to stop this nonsense, no matter how forcefully they must do so. Every resident has become a victim – some afraid to go outside at certain times, and others unwilling to go to certain parks, restaurants, gas stations or banks, target locations in the past.
Overall, there is confusion and fear of the unknown – though we know that a drug war has been declared between two opposing sides, just who is fighting who is hard for the average layman to determine without uniforms and flags present, though they are usually “known to police”. And where these shootings will strike next, and the possible targets, are anyone’s guess.
Residents are angry and want accountability. We have 100 more police officers than last year – 804 total – and yet we have seen crime rates in this city either flatline at the current levels…or rise dramatically.

“Surrey Shootings MUST BE STOPPED NOW”
(Posted August 4, 2015 by Shawn J.)
It seems that another Drug War has been unofficially declared in the city of Surrey, BC – a suburb of Greater Vancouver in Canada.
The battleground is all around us, the troops mostly 20-something punks and halfwits that don’t care who they start shooting at or where – with innocent civilians being hit, some even killed, as a result.
As you can see from this map (above left), no neighbourhood is safe, dealers and distributors fight it out for territory. Police are even investigating a bullet hole found in a window of the Surrey RCMP detachment, though officers have not yet determined when that shooting occurred.
Doesn’t exactly breed confidence in our local police. And though the RCMP has confirmed that they’ve investigated 51 incidents, they’ve only provided information on about 35 of them. Surrey RCMP told CTV News they would not provide details on at least 15 others because there was “no need for public assistance”.
What? Nearly a shooting every 2 weeks that we’re told that 1) we don’t need to know about because 2) they don’t (cough) need our help solving the crimes? I beg to differ on both counts. First of all, your role is to protect and serve us, @SurreyRCMP, not the other way around. Secondly, the optics are that you are protecting someone or a group of people that the general public wouldn’t likely be happy about.
The Surrey area was chosen as the #1 resettlement district in BC for “Syrian refugees” – and it would be extremely serious mistake for these people to make, after we have opened our door wide to them.
The majority of the shootings have been in the Newton area, where most of the current drug users live as well, followed by City Centre and Guildford. Ironically, the notorious Whalley district (where I live) – which used to be the hotbed of drugs and other street crime for Surrey, is now overrun with a different kind of headache – yuppies and their puppies. Thanks to the beauty of “gentrification” (a word so despised by Libtards but embraced by the rest of us) a miraculous transformation has come to this area.
