Vancouver: Police shoot machete wielding man threatening passengers on Skytrain

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

So far, no name or description has been released for the person who took out a machete at what appears to be 29th Station in Vancouver.


Vancouver police have shot a man they say was carrying a machete outside a SkyTrain station.

Const. Jason Doucette says the shooting happened at the 29th Street SkyTrain station in east Vancouver.

He says the man is in hospital but his condition is unknown.

Vancouver Metro:

Police confirmed they shot a man at 29th Station Monday morning after he allegedly threatened passengers with a machete and broke out of a SkyTrain that officers tried to use to contain him. 

The article continues on for several paragraphs with zero information about who the machete wielding man is, or what he looks like.

Officers located the man in a SkyTrain car, evacuated the train and surrounding area, then closed the SkyTrain doors, trapping the suspect inside, according to a written VPD release. But he broke his way out with the machete and did not follow police directions. 

That's when a Vancouver police officer shot him, said VPD.

??? It has been 17 hours since the last news story. Is BC going to pull a European trick, of refusing to name the assailant, lest we jump to conclusions?

Danny Trejo?

I still say he was probably a white supremacist Trump supporter shouting “Merry Christmas!” He was no doubt wearing a red and white suit and made his getaway in a red sled drawn by eight tiny reindeer. Where are Jay Kelly or Sean Penson for back-up when you need them?

Lack of information means they have to spin the story before they can release it to the public… They have to find a way to explain that the perpetrator who was a Muslim needed to be shot by the police officer.

I got a look of the back of his head on another channel; my guess either Asian or Middle East. That is not a machete.

If he was a Muslim, they would never have shot him, it is not Halal.

Is the perp dead?
If so, the cop who shot him was doing his duty and in so doing, saving a lot of money for the poor BC taxpayers.
Of course, if the perp is a Muslim, then the cop will be thrown under the bus (or the sky train).
In a weird twist, if the perp is a Muslim, then it is the cop who will be considered mentally deranged.

The lack of information from police says it all!
