“I was one of the ones hit at Wentworth this morning.. my dog started barking and when I looked out the window he had grabbed my spare tire and threw it at my window…. I yelled at him to get the f**k away from my truck and he screamed out that I was a f***ing Trump supporter… he then grabbed a rake from my neighbour’s home and started smashing windows in cars and houses.. I even heard one guy was attacked.. about 7 cops were on scene. Guy still out there is 6ft… thin build wearing a black ball cap red flannel shirt light blue jeans and Caucasian.” A REAL Concerned Citizen tells us.

  1. Trump derangement syndrome is alive and kicking in Canada.

    its always the left wing loons that go off the rails.

  2. WOW I do not know what our city is coming to it uses to be so nice and safe but not anymore. It is now a little Chicago with all the drugs and now guns taking over the whole entire city there is no where safe anymore that you can go to. I always said that sooner or later that the guns would come out and now they have started using them. I am not sure if these people are high or just what the score is with them but they are leaving a line of destruction behind themselves not sure what they are trying to prove but obviously they are very dangerous to our society. The sensless killings that are taking place is horrendous. My point of view is that it is going to get worse before ever getting better. The police are doing everything in their power to apprehend these people but we just do not seem to have a big enough police force to take it all on. I am waiting for them to start killing people in the streets just for the fun of it. So far that has not happened and I pray that it never does. People are afraid to leave their homes in fear of getting attacked I myself do not like to go out at night because of this but we cannot lock ourselves away we still have to live. This is just my point of view for what it is worth. My prayers go to the people that had their homes and cars attacked last night and I am hoping that when all these culprits are caught they will have the book thrown at them and locked away for a long time. They have terrorized a whole community and should get hard punishment for it. ONE PERSONS OPINION!!!!!!!
