“Alexandre Bissonnette, the only suspect in the case, appeared in court Monday and was charged with six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder while using a restricted firearm.”
See Here Are All The Hoaxes And Bullshit Stories That Spread After The Quebec Mosque ShootingWell, it’s time to write about this recent slaughter of innocents. I’m sad to say the chief suspect is a French Canadian, one of us, who was deluded into thinking Muslims were the problem. I wonder where he got that idea, eh? Breitbart and Trump come to mind…
Please click on the link to the right. It traces the growth and branching of #FakeNews about the shooting. Much of that was trying to blame Muslims for shooting Muslims. Imagine if this event had been in USA with 10X the population of nut-cases. Yes, that’s where the anti-Muslim rhetoric has grown like a cancer warping minds so badly they’ll vote for a lecherous fat old guy known to rip off investors, banks and ordinary working guys while buying stuff from China and blaming China, banks, Mexicans, Muslims and global trade for the shortage of work despite full employment. Yes, that’s where ~40% of the population voted for a serial liar and chose him to be POTUS of the most powerful country on Earth. Click on the link. Read how this nonsense takes on a life of its own, baseless lies stretched so thin only hot air pumped in can keep it up.
Anyway, the bad guy in this story was not Trump but one of his dupes. How many more will be spawned before Trump departs? How many more will be spawned by Trump’s henchmen for years to come? Oh, the horror…
More on the bad guy:
“Authorities in Canada have charged Alexandre Bissonnette, a French-Canadian university student known for his far-right views, over a shooting rampage on a Quebec City mosque that killed six people.
Bissonnette faces six counts of first-degree murder and five of attempted murder, but has not been charged with any terrorism-related offences, despite Sunday’s attack being widely condemned, including by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, as a “terrorist act” against Muslims.
When asked on Tuesday why Bissonnette was not facing terrorism-related charges, Thomas Jacques, a representative of the prosecutor’s office, replied: “The charges laid correspond to the evidence available””

He’s due for at least 25 years in prison up to about 50-life. He should be taken out to a public place, insulted for a few hours and then executed by firing squad to save the taxpayers’ money and provide closure. I’d bet the cost of dealing with the mess he made could be recouped by charging admission to attend and a lottery for the firing squad. They could probably fill a large stadium. Surplus should be donated to the victims’ families.
UPDATE – There’s more from CBC today:
“Police believe the shooter entered the Islamic cultural centre in the Quebec City suburb of Sainte-Foy just before 8 p.m. on Sunday, equipped with a long gun.
The gun jammed, police sources told Radio-Canada, prompting the shooter to leave and return with a nine-millimetre handgun.
Bissonnette was arrested later that night, on a bridge heading to ÃŽle d’OrlÃ©ans, about five kilometres away from the mosque.
In his car, the sources said, officers found a nine-millimetre handgun registered to Bissonnette. That gun had a 15-round capacity.”

So, the event is now understandable as much as madness can be understood. The nut-case worshipped Trump and the like and hated Muslims because they are not “from here” or “like us”. Some of the people he killed had lived here for decades. All of them were good people, pillars of society. The killer was a murdering bastard. Judge a tree by the fruit of it. Nothing good comes of Trumpism.
