I found two disturbing news stories which occurred within the last 24 hours. Both of these situations could have been avoided had certain individuals involved actually used their brains. I APOLOGIZE IN ADVANCE FOR WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO READ. IT’S DISTURBING. JUST SO YOU KNOW.
Police allege that the two Vancouver men belong to the B.C.-chapter of Blood and Honour, a white supremacist group with members all over the world.
Both Robertson De Chazal, 25, and Shawn MacDonald, 30, face assault-related charges for attacks that occurred right in Vancouver.
De Chazal is one of three suspects accused in an October 2009 incident in which a man was set on fire in the city’s east-end.
In that attack, police said a 25-year-old Filipino man was doused with accelerant and set on fire after he fell asleep on a discarded couch near Commercial Drive and 5th Avenue.
“Mr. De Chazal and two other men were observed by witnesses allegedly lighting the victim on fire,” B.C. RCMP Det. Const. Terry Wilson told reporters.
Wilson, who is with the RCMP’s Hate Crime Team, said police have arrested another suspect who is yet to be charged.
De Chazal, who is originally from Edmonton, also faces assault charges for allegedly beating a black man unconscious in September 2009.
Mounties have also arrested Shawn MacDonald, who is reportedly a friend of De Chazal’s.
He faces three counts of assault related to separate incidents in 2008 and 2010 in which a black man, an aboriginal woman and a Hispanic man were attacked.
Both MacDonald and De Chazal were apprehended after the B.C. Hate Crime Team began looking into a local chapter of the global neo-Nazi group Blood and Honour.
Police allege that both men were members of a group numbering 15 members in British Columbia’s Lower mainland area.
“Membership in this group is not illegal, but if the membership of a white supremacist organization motivates you to commit criminal offenses, that’s when the B.C. Hate Crime Team gets involved,” said Wilson.
Police said their investigation into the B.C.-faction of Blood and Honour is still active.
The international organization has a few chapters in Canada, including in Alberta and Ontario. During an incident in Edmonton last March, three members of the group were charged with assaulting three people and shouting racial slurs.
Prior to their arrests, neither MacDonald nor De Chazal had a criminal record.

Setting a person on fire is NEVER a good idea. Had these crazy guys thought about what they were doing and decided not to…they wouldn’t be in massive trouble now
The Essex County prosecutor’s office says 34-year-old Kasia Rivera gave 22-year-old Justin Street the injection on May 5. Such injections often are used to enlarge body parts, such as the buttocks.
Street died the day after the injection. His death was ruled a homicide following a medical examiner’s determination he died of a silicone embolism.
Rivera also faces charges for the unauthorized practice of medicine. She was arrested Friday and is being held on $75,000 bail.

This situation could have also been avoided…silicone is not natural… You shouldn’t use it anywhere…let alone down there. That guy didn’t have to die either. The woman who injected him obviously didn’t have his best interests at heart. Maybe she just wanted to come up with a creative way to have a good time. Guess it didn’t work. This one could be in line for one of those Darwin awards.
The irrationality of this world is very disturbing. God gave you a brain to work out good plans and situations..
