Gundon ExclusionWatch

The following redistributions were yesterday noted as occurring among the common people of London.

One:

London police are investigating a second home-invasion robbery in 24 hours.

The most recent brazen attack came about 11 p.m. Thursday when two men forced their way into a unit at an apartment building at 758 Kipps Lane.

That attack came only about 20 hours after an invasion at a townhouse on Railton Avenue at Trafalgar Street at about 2 a.m. Thursday.
Can any of us truly say in our hearts that, finding ourselves excluded from 758 Kipps Lane, with a gun in one hand and a baseball bat in the other, that we ourselves would never enter and assault those inside? There but for the inclusive grace of the community go each and every one of us.

Experts tell us that by carrying out these so-called "home invasions", the excluded are metaphorically asking for an "open door policy" to all of our hearts. Having knocked on the door of London's love for so long, and found themselves without acceptance, programs, or funding, these Excluded-Canadians took the only course left to them by the people of this city.

This is the sad result of the politics of exclusion as practiced by Londoners.

Two:
Yesterday's two-hour crime spree in London followed a pair of unrelated gas station holdups Thursday in the city within minutes of each other.

The dramatics -- police speculated the bandit may have been looking for drug money -- began just before 7 a.m. at an A&P grocery store at 1030 Adelaide St. N. when a man demanded money from a cashier and fled on foot.

An employee was slightly hurt in that incident, said Const. Amanda Pfeffer.
In this case the Freeps doesn't make it clear whether exclusionary factors factored into the factors behind these robberies.

I'd tend to blame the employee for his own injury. This looks like a classic case of an ignorant monocultural cashier taking understanding for granted, thus forcing the "bandit" to express his point of view in terms that were sure to cross the cultural boundaries between the two of them.

The abuse of London's underclass goes on.
