Life from a feminist view / Young woman beated to death on Longueuil cycle path

Isn't this also terrorism?

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/woman-dies-after-savage-longueuil-bike-path-assault-1.2808491

Sadly, because of the events in Saint-Jean and Ottawa, people are talking about this savage attack on a woman simply for being a young woman cycling or jogging on a path - in the middle of Vieux-Longueuil, the old, dense centre of a large suburb on Montréal's south shore, not an area thought of as deserted or dangerous.

BUMP

Toe pointed this out almost a month ago as an excellent way to pay honour to our dear departed friends. Alison has now posted another appeal:

That's a very nice tribute, Mandos.

Someone at Ian Welsh's site mentioned that the news should be shared with the regulars at Firedoglake/FDL. I believe skdadl was a regular over there for awhile.

It's been years since I stopped there (circa 2002/3). It really has grown.

I find it yet sadder that the blog is down.  There's a lot of fine writing there, and not just from pogge and skdadl.  But if that was his/their last wish...

I wrote a tribute to both of them in the comments section of a blog of a mutual friend who is a bridge to parts of the US blogosphere, just in case anyone there recognizes them.

Indeed, we all respected her privacy, which is a good thing, but I'm so very sad about how she ended up so reclusive when she was ill.


I can't stop thinking about that specifically and oh the loss of Rob for her. It is that I am so discombobulated about mostly. We are all thinking about our own mortality here, yet we wonder how Rob's death could be so 'sudden' when he had the acumen to disable pogge.ca, so he knew what he was faced with. So young, it doesn't make sense to me. We don't know details, we never will, so we find acceptance somehow. It is all we can do.
