    Canada - Police foil plot to kill people at Halifax mall

    APNewsbreak: police foil plot to kill people at mall
    TORONTO (AP) — A senior police official said Friday that police foiled a plot by two suspects who were planning on going to a mall and killing as many people as they could before committing suicide on Valentine's Day in Halifax. The official told The Associated Press the suspects were on a chat stream and were apparently obsessed with death and had many photos of mass killings. Police and other officials said it was not related to Islamic terrorism.

    The official said one of the two suspects, a 23-year-old American woman from Geneva, Illinois, was arrested at Halifax's airport and confessed to the plot. The official said she prewrote a number of pronouncements to be tweeted after her death.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Sickening.
    Sometimes social media is a good thing; people post the most insane stuff and yet think it's all confidential and only viewable to their peers.
    So glad LE was tipped off !!!

    So who was the tipster? I saw a comment on an ABC news article that said it was the 19 year old who killed himself, but I haven't seen that in the media anywhere yet. Whether it was him or not, I want to thank the individual.

    Thank goodness they didn't execute their plan.

    Last evening, investigators located the 19-year-old male suspect at a Tiger Maple Avenue residence and at approximately 1:20 a.m., the Emergency Response Team entered his residence and found him deceased. As we previously issued in media release this matter has been referred to the Nova Scotia Serious Incident Response Team for investigation.

    James Gamble identified as dead teen linked to alleged Halifax shooting plot
    2 charged with conspiracy to commit murder after police foil mass shootings

    The 19–year–old found dead in connection with the potential mass shootings in Halifax has been identified as James Gamble, CBC News has confirmed.

    Gamble left behind a blog filled with disturbing and dark images of death, shootings and references to the 1999 Columbine high school massacre in Colorado. It also has several references to Adolf Hitler and Nazis.
    Wow.

    I'm almost positive I found Lindsay's FB too, but she has a different last name than in MSM. I won't post it but it's easy to find. (through friends)

    I find it weird that there has not been one photo published of the female -- males have had their photo splashed in MSM but her - why is that?

    Some debate up here as to whether this should be classified as a 'terrorist attack'.

    The Canadian Minister of Justice says that this attack was not 'culturally motivated', and so it doesn't qualify as terrorist. Notwithstanding, it appears that there are some pretty strong neo-Nazi sentiments among the participants, leaving some to wonder whether the definition of 'terrorism' has been narrowed to include only (or mainly) Muslim-related violence.

    Fwiw there are may 'wanna be' kids out there that want to be heard. Some crazy, some not. The term 'terrorism' cannot and should not be applied at will - jmo. Applying the term terrorism at will only serves to needlessly rile the public - jmo. Just because Prime Minister SH applied the term to some recently doesn't make it so - jmo. He has an agenda that others do not.

    We need not be afraid of every different person we see - that would be crazy. Jmo.

    Crazy stuff...

    ETA. I find it quit interesting that authorities in Halifax are saying that this "has nothing to do with ethnic or political considerations"


    I also find it interesting that one of the first to make a public statement was Peter Mackay, Canada's Minister of Justice. Who called them "murderous misfits"....
