I am very sure its drug dealers killing other drug dealers.
But the attitude of let them kill themselves off who cares. Is the same attitude that the police had down at the coast when the hookers and the drug addicted women were disappearing.
It is quite easy, to have got attitude until someone in your family disappears or dies . Let's just hope there is not another Willie picktin in vernon.

killing is wrong no matter who they are and what they do...drugs are bad but the only way to get rid of them is to make drugs legal....let the government be responsible for killing people by selling bad drugs.think about the tax money they would get.

Any of you goodie-goodies who are so ready to judge the drug users obviously have never walked in their shoes or have children that are lost to the drugs. Why don't you educate yourselves on the sickness of drugs and the drug users who are so addicted that they will do anything for that next fix while crying out for help to get off them. Why is the gov't not treating these people as individuals who need help in a secured rehab facility instead of jail ? Come on people , have a little bit of compassion and thank God if you have never been directly or indirectly afflicted by this life.

Who cares who is killing them? Welcome to the real world. Live by drugs and guns....you die by drugs and guns. Too bad the hunting regs don't legalize it.....with NO bag limit and no tags.

To O.K. hunter.It's people likeyou that the public have to watch out for. Obviously you have no feelings for anyone but yourself. I agree that the dealers should be dealt with very harshly but for you to say they should legalize shooting them is sick. Why don't you try saying a prayer for these people and the ones who are caught up in this life instead of condeming them. I agree with the person from Surry who said they could be someones' father or daughter and they do have family members who love them. If you have children I only pray to God that they never get into this life because only then will you realize how much it hurts to see your child killing himself (herself) for the sake of shutting out the world with a fix.What goes around comes around. And don't forget the saying "There but for the sake of God go I"

They are someones father or daughter or in my case cousin, his disappearance from vernon has been on the news often associated with this, Stanley never had a chance growing up with one of the most abusive parents I ever knew, he was abuse and mutulated by my aunt all through his childhood - YES MUTILATED! at a young age he started doing drugs and going to jail, we never approved but we understood. Our hearts always had forgivness when it came to Stanley, he tried often when he was released to clean up but there was always something that knocked him down in life, from the death of his wife and his mother (whom he refused to see, and never received closure) and he always fell back to the numbing of drugs. We know Stan is dead and have buried him in our hearts and we will always miss him, But every drugger out there has a story, some better some worse than Stans to tell. I cant judge these people it isnt my place but you who seem to think they can, to you I say look to your children/neices/nephews/uncles /mother/father there is someone in your family who is afflicted with this disease spend your time and energy trying to help the problem not spread the ignorance. AND PRAY THAT IS STAYS AWAY FROM YOU AND YOURS

Stan could have made the changes in his life style that he had to, he was a strong man and I know this. Once in a while he would feel down in the dumps cause of all that went on in his life.With the loss of his wife who was so tragically taken away from him, to the death of his mother.But that was no reason for Stan to choose the lifestyle that he chose. He had a reason to live a real good reason.He has a family the loves him dearly and respects him dearly and we will miss him dearly. That is all I have to say on this matter till later.

I just came from a funeral today in Kelowna of a 31 year old girl who was murdered. It had something to do with drugs as she was addicted and on the streets. She was a beautiful person with a family who got into a lifestyle that she didn't know how to break free from and it cost her everything. I work at a Teen Challenge recovery center and am a graduate of the program, being on drugs for 31 years myself, so I do have a little bit of insight into the whole mess. People's comments have been with either full compassion or no compassion at all and either way is wrong. There are times where we must love the person who is struggling with addiction and help them when they are trying to get help to change their lives and there are times when we must tell them to stay away and we offer them nothing. We stand with the person in every good decision they make and leave them on their own when they make bad one's. But we need to alway's have hope for them and never give up believing that they can change.
