Canadian Cop Killer Suspect Expressed Anti-Police Sentiments

Who is the man wanted for killing three Royal Canadian Mounted Police and wounding two others in the streets of Moncton, New Brunswick, last night?

An active Facebook page that appears to belong to a Justin Bourque in Moncton features several pro-gun and anti-police photos and rants. Many of the posts are meme photos with text written on them. 

"Ask yourself, would you fight for the future of your children or grandchildren, or your family and friends and sons and daughters?" says a post from April 7. "The answer is: no you’re too stupid to know what to fight for, cause we’re already losing the silent war you don’t wanna believe is happening."

It has not been confirmed that the page belongs to the man police are seeking in connection with the Moncton shootings.

CTV reports the last post on the Facebook page, made Wednesday evening, was a quote from metal band Megadeth.

"A little man with a big eraser, changing history, Procedures that he's programmed to, all he hears and sees. Altering the facts and figures, events and every issue. Make a person disappear, and no one will ever miss you. Rewrites every story, every poem that ever was," a segment of the post says.

Bourque is on the left. I thought L.E. have the ability to check & monitor social network sites these days? If so, why are all these nut cases slipping through the system??? Just a question, because I didn't have the authority and/or training to do that in my days of service.

Yes, we have the ability to do that, and there are programs available to allow us to do that en-masse from any "public" site used within any given area. But, there is so much out there, who has the time to monitor all of it? Even when you have a program to search for certain "trigger" words to help you sift through it, you need to be able to use the (excuse me while I introduce a new term here), "proper slang" for the program to catch it. You might enter "firearm," "gun," "pistol," "rifle," and still miss it if they call it a "rod" or a "hog-leg" or something else. We aren't the NSA. The internet is like our neighborhoods. No place has enough cops to be on every street corner 24/7 - and no place has the resources to check every social media site either. In both cases we need to rely on our citizens to see something AND make the call. Something like an interet neighborhood watch or internet watch. Someone is seeing these postings. They need to call us - in advance of an event.
