Justin Bourque murdered 3 Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers Wednesday night in Moncton. Based on his Facebook page, the alleged RCMP killer clearly loved guns. When I read his Facebook page, he still had 49 friends, many with public timelines no less scary than Bourque's.
This is what I gleaned from his public Facebook timeline:
(I'm using the present tense but I'm guessing he'll be dead when you read this.)
-He appears to be anglophone despite his last name (many of his Facebook friends live in the very English speaking suburb of Riverview).
-He lives in a trailer park
-He has at least one black friend
-He loves guns
-He hates the police but is pro-military/militias
-He is libertarian leaning
-He admires Putin, but fears Russia will invade Canada first (before Ukraine?)
-He isn't big on writing. He prefers to repost
-He is a member of the Anonymous World Resistance Group of Facebook.
-Perhaps he was a fan of Megadeath? Well he quoted verse 1 of Hook in My Mouth on his Facebook page before going outside and starting his rampage. Perhaps he just felt the name of the group was apropos (since he was gong to have multiple victims). By the way, that song came out 26 years ago, before Justin Bourque was borne.
-He like fishing
-He likes hunting
Mostly, he just likes guns. Also, by Moncton standards, for the first time this season, it was really hot tuesday in Moncton and quite humid the day of his murders. That's usually when people get violent.
