It also likely a regular practice rather than an occasional one if you talk with people from the community at the time.

I wouldn't be shocked if it was still happening and in more places than SK

VPD used to do the same stuff, they'd drop kids off in the middle of Stanley Park and they'd have to hoof it back to East Van, no one died but it was still bull

Godfreds treatment was akin to the starlight tours. I remember learning about them in high school and it surprises me to hear that people have never heard of it.

I hadn't heard about it until people started shining a light on police brutality recently. The post about Godfred reminded me of the Starlight Tours, which was why I brought it up.

Also, there was an indie movie short inspired by the Starlight Tours, maybe indie isn't even the right word, it was written, directed and starred in by then 16 year old Grace Wethor from Minnesota. I have not seen it, but it's about a bullying victim who is kidnapped by her classmates and left out in the cold to freeze (after they learn about the Starlight Tours) and about the fight for her to stay alive.

Molu Zarpeleh a 10 year old kid drowned on July 2nd.

There are allegations that he was drowned by older kids who told their parents what they did and decided to do nothing. The allegations continue that the local police department is covering it up.

There are also reports that the child who witness Molu being pushed, has confessed to lying, also by telling his parents.

Honestly this one is bizarre and all sides seem like fiction, I have no idea what to think. All I know for sure is 10 is far to young to die and I feel terribly for his parents.

They picked a pretty appropriate place to store the confederate statues I guess!
