This makes me so angry that I would really like to see physical harm inflicted on those who are responsible...

There are two tiers of justice in Canada.
One for aboriginals, and one for just about everyone else.
Take the latest racist shocker:
On July 22, a 14 year old aboriginal boy, Jordan, had a missing persons case filed. He was last seen with a convicted pedophile who has reoffended multiple times in the past, and was considered high risk to reoffend again. His main target, young boys. The man, Peter Whitmore, was friends with Jordan's family. They were on a trip, when Whitmore told Jordan's father it was okay to go back home to grab something he had forgotten, that he would 'take Jordan home'. It's been 2 weeks and he has not taken Jordan home. Jordan was filed as a missing person, but not much else was done, nor was there an investigation into who Peter Whitmore was.
On July 30th, Whitmore struck again. This time, on Sunday night a 10 year old caucasian boy disappeared from his home in Whitewood, Saskatchewan.
A nation wide Amber Alert was issued for 10 year old Zachary Miller, and the face of he and his abductor appeared on front pages across Canada, everyone desperate to find him.
The kicker? This uproar was never created for aboriginal Jordan. Even after it was revealed that the person who still had Jordan with him was a convicted pedophile who preyed on young boys, each paper was SPECIFIC in pointing out that the Amber Alert was only for Zachary Miller and that Police were not treating Jordan's disappearance as an abduction.
Now, following a standoff in Kipling, both boys have been saved. The papers are also very specific in pointing out that Zachary Miller is back home, and safe. Also, Jordan is with police. Should be returned home soon after "questioning".
Jordan's family is wondering why an Amber Alert was never issued for Jordan, nor was his case considered a kidnapping, NOR was the abductor even CHECKED, because if they HAD checked they would have realized right away, convicted pedophile. The police are saying that Jordan went 'willingly'.
What 14 year old would you hold accountable for going with the flow with a dangerous convicted criminal who may or may not have been assaulting him along the way? What 14 year old would you think REALLY had a choice?
Because there are two tiers of justice in Canada.
One for aboriginals.
One for just about everyone else.

I also recommend watching the "Not So Gentle Neighbor" video on the American Indian Movement website for those of you who are not familiar with it, especially if you're Native.
