Dawson College Shooting, coroner recommendations

Dawson College Shooting, coroner recommendations

The coroner's report for the Dawson College shooting incident (Kimveer Gill killed Anastasia De Sousa and injured 19 others at Dawson College on September 13th 2006 during a 20 minute shooting frenzy) was released today.

Coroner's recommendations:

• Health and education officials should have access to the federal gun registry, in order to keep track of suicidal/insane people who may have access to firearms.

• Ban weapons where the charger is located behind the trigger.

• Police should immediately liaise with staff at the beginning of operations involving a shooter to maximize information about the shooter's location.

• Police should consider equipping each station with one or two rifles or shotguns to be used by trained officers and kept in patrol car trunks.

• Police should keep track of patrol cars dispersed across its territory with electronic mapping such as GPS to make response more effective.

• Schools and colleges should prepare emergency plans to deal with potential shooters with the assistance of police.

In response to the Dawson College shooting the Quebec government passed a new law earlier this week that bans firearms from schools, school buses and daycare centres, except for authorized personnel such as police.

What a freaking useless law! That law is the last thing on a gunman's mind when they go on a shooting rampage. Why not pass a real law that will actually make a difference?!

Index spammer abusing WebRing's Blog program
A spammer has been posting crap links on WebRing's blog program, the second time in the last 2 months.

The first a little over a month ago when a person spamming links in other blog users' comment sections. WebRing, immediately aware of the problem, posted a message on July 14th telling users how to remove unwanted comments.

The new spammer, active last night and today, however has been posting crap links under "user index random number"... in otherwords a complete waste of space, time, and when WebRing finally deletes those crap links... effort too.

WebRing has yet to delete the offending "blog-spam", but our guess is that it will done shortly. Abuse of the system has to be dealt with firmly to send a message to spammers that their efforts will be in vain.

Telephone Marketing And SPAM Should Be ILLEGAL!
