Members of Alberta First Nation ‘in shock’ after teen charged with shooting German tourist

 

A shooting near the Stoney Nakoda First Nation has left a German tourist with a serious brain injury.

  1. This boy who committed this horrible senseless act is a child in any community. What happened is terrible for all concerned but why, not who? Such a loss of a life for a grave mistake. Poor German family caught in the crossfire of this event.

  2. They are worried about a negative image?
    Seriously?….How about let’s worry about the victim’s family who will have to take care of this poor guy for the rest of his life because he can’t function on his own.
