One of the victims have been identified.

I'm suprised I didn't see a thread about it.

Does the fact that mountainbikers dont really care about those involved with gangs really surprise you?

I dont know how else to say it….we just dont care about these types of guys…..If I was a big fan of Bubble tea,I might be concerned,but really,Im paying more attention to things like the dollar and the sub prime mortgage fiasco……not some low level idiots shooting each other randomly.

It wasn't a bubble tea place. It was a chinese food place with the worst service in the history of mankind. Also, from what I understand, someone got shot there a couple new years' ago.

^^werd, maybe if it had been two guys shooting totally random innocent people there would of been more people worked up about it, but dude, the guys who pulled it off targeted the competition, kind of tcb, gang style so yeah, nobody cares.

I never really knew Zack that well, but a lot of my friends are a mess right now. The last couple days have been soo depressing around town. His mom is a really well respected dance teacher in the community and is taking it quite hard.

actually, i'm just a little concerned that this kind of gun violence is happening here (regardless of the perps ethnicity or gang affiliation) - esp. if it's indicative of changing sociocultural trends. more people packing heat = a greater likelihood that some innocent bystander is going to catch a stray bullet, more physical altercations will turn ugly, etc. i'd like to think it's a singular random occurrence, but it seems more boomsticks are being waved about these days.

herein lies the problem. most people, myself included, dont care when gangsters are killing each other, one less bad guy. these things , however, often spill over and innocent people can be in the line of fire. what causes this? who knows really, my personal opinion is that its a combination of urbanization and the virtual ghetto-ization which has occurred with respect to ethnic groups in our major populated centres.

Meanwhile, on Monday, a group created in Ferland's memory on the popular social networking website Facebook had more than 350 members.

Since when do journalists start reporting on what happened on Facebook after the fact.
