    homelessness should be a thing o’ the past,eh?…i believe the lyrics to an old metal song from the 70’s that goes,”who’s the savage?…modern man”…our modern societies outta be beyond this non-sense

    Is it Brooklyn PARK or Brooklyn CENTER? Get it right – one part of the story states it’s in BC, but then you attribute the quote from the police sgt as a sgt from BP. Doubt that the BC cops needed the assistance from a neighboring city on this case. Your credibility goes down the pipes when you don’t get simple facts straight.

    Fact is,he’s probably just another victim of the Party of NO! With many more to come, no doubt as well.
