Common Sense, Joshua Evans Is A Hero Of The Vancouver Riots
Yesterday, we started to hear the news that Joshua Evans who was arrested with guns drawn by the VPD for holding a knife was actually a hero. One of his lawyers, Gloria Ng appeared at the Vancouver Community Court on Wednesday as reported by the Vancouver Sun to ask for an adjournment of the case.
As can be read in the original article, one of the victims who was stabbed, Sunny Jaura, was telling the VPD that Joshua Evans was part of their group after they arrested him for holding a knife. Where did this knife come from? Imagine the scene of a knife wielding attacker who stabs three of your friends. You then subdue the attacker and take the knife away. No one is video taping this or snapping photos to accidentally mis-identify you. This is a common charge by civil liberties people who say that out of context photos will incriminate innocent people, but I digress. In this case, because you take the knife away and the police show up at the same time and don’t see it, they point their guns at you and arrest you. I can only imagine the trauma that Joshua Evans felt after having just saved his friends and was now being arrested.
Joshua Evans is from Calgary and has since returned to work. A second court date is scheduled on July 19th. I imagine this will cost some money to fly or drive back to Vancouver. This whole system of having to clear one’s name is going to cost Joshua personally and all of us in taxpayer money. So while I’ve placed Joshua Evans within the confines of my blog to openly declare that I believe he’s a hero, our court system has to go thru these proceedings and at cost for him to clear his name.
Sunny Jaura said in the Vancouver Sun article, “It’s common sense, save the taxpayer money and do the right thing”. Don’t worry Sunny and Joshua. Public opinion doesn’t have to go thru the proceedings of up to a year for him to clear his name. To all of us, Joshua Evans is a hero that we can determine thru our common sense.
