Today’s Vancouver Province reported: “A man was in critical condition in hospital last night after he was robbed and almost beaten to death by two men at Carrall and Hastings early Sunday. Witnesses found the man, who had fallen backwards during the beating and hit his head on the ground. His name was not released.”
In an unrelated event, early this afternoon the police were all around Carrall and Cordova – around 9 vehicles – some unmarked. Everyone was looking to see what was going on but I have no idea – it looked big. One officer was seen returning to his car after removing his automatic weapon from across his shoulder.
