Pssst… right-wankers: important rumour!

Live-Rapist-Walking Fernando Manuel Alves last name isn’t “Alves” it’s

Al Ves.

And you know what that means…

moflipSHRIEEEEEK!!!

!!!!!!!!!

(Think that might give them the motivation they need to demand this raping scum be sent to prison?)

For the rest of us, from Dawg’s Blawg:

It is appropriate to lobby the decision-maker at the Crown’s office with respect to a sentence appeal.

The decision-maker in this case is:

Mr. Grant B. Wong
Deputy Regional Crown Counsel
222 Main Street
Vancouver, B.C.
V6A 2S8

FAX: 604.660.4347

Mr. Wong will be returning to his office in the first week of September, but no reason to wait until then. Your comments should be in letter format (not email). Be polite and stick to the facts. Point out the public policy implications of letting admitted rapists walk free.

Do it.

    LOL. That oughta get their attention. 😀

    Seriously, though, not one tighty-righty has blogged about it. You’d think the law-n-order types would be alllll over this.

    You’d think the law-n-order types would be alllll over this.

    Especially the ones with daughters (or wives, or sisters, or etc. etc.)… or the ones who are female themselves.

    I don’t expect them to promote womens’ rights when it’s stuff they don’t agree with, but this should be an issue practically everyone can agree on. WTF?

    You’re suggesting he’s Muslim. What gives if that’s the
    case? I can’t connect the dots, again.

  4. 4 Raphael Alexander Sunday, August 23, 2009 at 1:11 pm

    Just because someone doesn’t blog about something doesn’t reflect an absence of concern about it. I think you’ll find most conservatives would be happy if he were locked away and chemically castrated.

  5. 5 fern hill Sunday, August 23, 2009 at 1:23 pm

    Give us a freakin’ break, Raphael. We feminists, in particular, are always called to task for NOT writing about some act of violence against women that the wingnuts deem particularly horrible because Muslims were involved. Hit my homepage link and you’ll find a blogpost from my co-blogger, deBeauxOs, just today on yet another such from Naomi Lackwitz in the Pest.

    We’re just getting some back here. 😉

    Forgot your /sarc tags again. See the confusion this causes?

  7. 7 JJ Sunday, August 23, 2009 at 1:27 pm

    Torontonian – I jest 😉

    Here we have a rapist who copped a plea and isn’t serving a day of time… something’s wrong with that, so many of us on this side of the ‘sphere think it might be a good idea to get in touch with the Crown and suggest an appeal.

    However, this story seems to be a non-issue to conservatives, something I find strange given that
    (a)they’re the ones constantly mouthing off about Law & Order, and
    (b)lately they’ve taken to arfing about feminists “not standing up for” women.

    What seems to make all the difference is if the perp is a muslim.

    Fern Hill,

    Fair enough, I suppose. Perhaps all I can do is explain my own absence of scribing a post on this subject. I am so accustomed by now to the depraved indifference our legal system has to victims, that I’m not altogether surprised that this rapist got off. After all, what does a first-time offender get for raping a small child these days? 2 years less a day?

    Crimes of a sexual nature have been, and continue to be considered small potatoes to economic ones and murder.

    Just because someone doesn’t blog about something doesn’t reflect an absence of concern about it.

    Not by the standards of people like Naomi Lakritz, John Robson and any number of right-wing journos and bloggers I could name.

    I’m glad to see you refuting them, though 😉

  10. 10 fern hill Sunday, August 23, 2009 at 1:35 pm

    So, Raphael, set an example for your fellow and sister Cons. Blog about it. Maybe even admit that we feminists were on it first, while your side is still prattling about the horrible, horrible things done to women by Muslims while we feminists are silent, yadayada.

    As JJ said, surely this is a matter on which both sides can agree.

  11. 11 JJ Sunday, August 23, 2009 at 1:39 pm

    fern hill – Well, that’s the thing. Lakritz scans the blogposts at Rose’s Place and if it isn’t “all honour killings all the time”, it means not only that feminists don’t care, but that we’re also somehow complicit in these types of crimes. All the bullshit about “The Left” and its supposed “love affair with radical islam” — WTF planet are they on?? Dining room tables, every one of them.

  12. 12 JJ Sunday, August 23, 2009 at 1:40 pm

    Dr. Dawg – Maybe I should start using these 😉 in my posts. My sense of humour seems to be hit and miss these days

  13. 13 Raphael Alexander Sunday, August 23, 2009 at 1:44 pm

    “Dining room tables”? Another internet tradition I don’t know about?

    Crimes of a sexual nature have been, and continue to be considered small potatoes to economic ones and murder.

    Oh for sure. IANAL, but my understanding is that our laws are based on British Common law, which is more focused on property. That’s why some of the most heinous sex crimes get a slap on the wrist — it’s just not that important, because nobody lost any money 😯

    That said, imagine this same scenario except the guy was a muslim. Do you think conservative bloggers would be so quiet about it? Or would they be bitching and beefing all the way to the beach?

  15. 16 Raphael Alexander Sunday, August 23, 2009 at 2:03 pm

    I think it’s fairly safe to say that there would be some hysteria about it. If this recent Suaad Hagi Mohamud case is any indication, some people seem to gravitate toward attributing every evil to Islam:

    Is she a Muslim-Somali-Canadian? Muslim first? Because the Muslims know what’s going on over there, come here to live in peace, but end up suing us, even though all this mess was brough on by Islamists.

  16. 17 JJ Sunday, August 23, 2009 at 2:24 pm

    RA – “Hysteria” — yeah, that sounds about right 😆

    The thing is, nobody is *obliged* to blog about anything — and just because someone hasn’t blogged about this particular issue, doesn’t automatically mean they condone soft sentencing for rapists. But by the same token, just because feminist bloggers don’t blog about honour killings 24/7, doesn’t mean they’re an islamofascist 5th column either. (I myself am opposed to fundamentalist religion in all its toxic flavours.)

    I’d like to see us get away from using these tragedies & abuses as political bludgeons to beat the shit out of each other with, when in reality we’re all on the same side in so many ways. You guys like to say: “Have you forgotten (9/11)?” — well, have you forgotten 9/12 and 9/13? I remember a lot of solidarity, which was pretty quickly flushed down the toilet. Solidarity doesn’t make money.

  17. 18 harpervalley Sunday, August 23, 2009 at 6:53 pm

    i’ve always imagined the ‘old boys’ get together and say shit like, ‘phew, man, that could have happened to me. i was so drunk and horny one night i almost….: and of course their bot wives believe the bullshit they make up to keep marshmellow laws and sentences like this upheld.

    so whatever happened to the days of rusty bayonets lopping off gonads and dicks?

  18. 19 hemmingforddogblog Monday, August 24, 2009 at 1:01 am

    You mean getting “Bobbitized”? hahahaha

  19. 20 JJ Monday, August 24, 2009 at 2:41 am

    Scout – I wonder more about the ones who get together and talk about how it did happen to them… except they didn’t get caught.

    Spoken like a dining room table. 🙂

  22. 23 JJ Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 7:04 am

    😆 One of the conditions of *being* a dining room table is *not knowing* one is a dining room table.

    O/T, but you did you see this premature ejerkulation from Jonathon K yesterday?

    ETA: What am I saying, “O/T”? That’s right on topic.

  23. 24 Mike Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 7:50 am

    Alves is Portuguese isn’t it?

    Not that it will matter to the mouth-breathers…

  24. 25 JJ Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 8:19 am

    Yes but if you spell it Al Ves… Ay-Rab!!! 😯

    That’s what I mean, what would it take to get the law & order wingnuts’ attention? Tell them Alves is really a (SHRIEEEEK!) muslim!

  25. 26 Frank Frink Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 6:56 pm

    Hi. Buzzkill here.

    Alves is one of the Portuguese variations of Alvarez. It’s actually Goth/Frankish in origin.

    Not that there aren’t Spanish/Portuguese surnames that do have some Arabic origin. This just isn’t one of them.

  26. 27 JJ Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 9:21 pm

    FF – No buzzkill: I know. I’m just joking. My point is, how to get the supposed law & order wingnuts to pay attention to an obvious injustice — maybe if they thought he was a muslim it might get their attention?

    My sense of humour is obviously way off these days; this is about the 5th time I’ve had to explain a joke 😦 Oh well

  27. 28 Frank Frink Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    Oh no, JJ. I understood the joke, and point of the post, perfectly well. You were on the right track because there is an element of truth to it. As I was mentioning, there are a number of Iberian surnames that do have an Arabic origin.

    Google BC Ball Hockey Association… look – alves is tournament director. And the WBHL – western ball hockey league, has links to the Raiders Pre-Season Tournament – please send your money to Fernando Alves… oh look, his email address… and his phone number, and his street address?? My goodness, how easy it is to track down convicted sexual offenders…

  29. 30 JJ Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 11:13 am

    Dangerous – I’d rather not, actually. We have cops for that kind of thing.


Wait. What?
