I wake up this morning to this just down the road from me near my brother's store.


Canadian police said late Friday they had foiled a plot by two suspects who were planning to kill as many people as they could at a Halifax shopping mall on Valentine's Day before killing themselves. Nova Scotia Royal Canadian Mounted Police Commanding Officer Brian Brennan said in a statement that when investigators learned of the plot Thursday morning, "we acted quickly and intercepted a threat."

The 19-year-old man was found dead by investigators at his parents' home in Timberlea, Nova Scotia,early Friday morning, Brennan said. The suspect apparently shot himself after police surrounded the house.

The American woman was arrested at Halifax's airport a short time later. The police official told the AP she confessed to the plot and had written a number of pronouncements to be posted on Twitter after her death.

This happened yesterday but the police kept a lid on it apparently.

I see that we are becoming numb enough now. We read and skim and brush it off as just another day. 43 views on YT,



I see it all over the news and especially in the US of course but this happened down the street. Too close.

One Canadian and an American working together but thankfully they didn't get the opportunity to pull it off. It was slated to happen this morning. Interestingly, the police are NOT calling this a terrorist act. Thankfully.

Peace

Interesting quotes from one comment section:


Gee, had this been in the US, the police would have waited until the actual crime had been committed.



Yep, it's more sensationalistic that way. The chief of police can get in front of the camera with all that gold regalia on his uniform, looking like an 1800s monarch, talking about how his men bravely cornered the suspects before they could do any more shooting. He'll say they need more training, weapons, military hardware and above all, more benefits and salary to combat these terrorists.

I wonder how many crimes like this didn't happen that we never hear about.

But then I always wonder weird things.

If it serves an agenda we hear about it. If it doesn't, just another news day.

Small news here I guess. But if this was in the US, the anti-gun folks would be all over it.

I imagine its because there is something else going on they dont want all over the news so they are spamming us with bull# as usual.

Exactly, your eyes might not see it BUT YOUR BRAIN DOES.

But here's the problem.

Canada is NOT calling it a terrorist cell. In fact they are stressing the point of it not being terrorist related at all.

First time I seen the word terrorist related to this is here on ATS.

Normally it seems that the word terrorist would be thrown around but in this case they are calling it disgruntled youths. Their target seems to have been The Halifax Shopping Center.

The most interesting part is the arrest of a US woman at the airport as she was coming in from Iowa to be a part of it. They were online friends.

Peace

Heard it on the idiotbox today, I figured because it was so close(I am in NB). Odd that my sisters in NY heard about it, and in here someone in the UK as well?

You never question that possibility?

Last time Canadian police foiled a "plot" t was from a crack-head couple out of Surrey B.C.

I can not prove it but I am sure that there is pressure on these officers to hunt out terrorism whether for budgets or whatever. Keep in mind there are no entrapment laws in Canada like the US. All officers here have to do after implanting thoughts of a terrorist attack and supplying the tools to do it, is give the potential suspect an "opportunity" to back out. Of course that comes down to your word vs. The RCMP.

Terrorist acts are what started the excuse to expand police powers but it was directed at Muslim extremists so Canadians never argued the laws being brought into effect. Now they are going to expand their police power targets to include basically anyone the police find threatening. We don't need to call them terrorists any more. The laws have been tabled.

CSIS is getting a lot more power lately as well.

Perhaps this event is blown out of proportion to justify US like laws coming Down the pike.

I hate that we are now living in a time that we can't trust anything we hear. It's all confusing but that I believe is the actual goal of it all. Keep us confused.
