“Winnipeg police search for ‘person of interest’ in homicides targeting homeless” by Peter Chura and Shannon Cuciz on April 26, 2015 on Global News.
On April 25, 2015, the police found two dead bodies downtown in Winnipeg. They believe that the same killer is responsible for the two separate homicides, as they believe that they are also connected. The officers think that the murderer is targeting homeless or vulnerable people. The first body was a late 40 year-old man found in an alley and the second one was a man in his late 60s found behind 333 Portage Avenue. The two males were both vulnerable in a way that they both suffer from mental illness or substance abuse, and they also both spent most of their lives on the streets. The police still don’t have a suspect in custody, but they did release pictures of the male that is a person of interest. It is advised that people walking at night in the dark should stay in groups and not wonder off alone or with a person they barely know. They also do need to look over their shoulder or behind them because those who don’t will more likely be the next victims as said in the article. However, I believe that there should be more security for places that are known as “sketchy” or unsafe. Also, when walking at night, “there is safety in numbers”. One should never walk outside in the dark alone, I believe that someone walking alone is more likely to be a victim that someone walking with many friends.

When it comes to new power, I believe that it will help people get aware of what is actually going on in this world. People are ignorant, they don’t necessarily want to believe in bad things or that people can be that cruel. So, the world needs to face reality, they need to know what’s going on so that they can be more aware and more safe. With new power, they can learn how to protect themselves or how to avoid danger. I believe that this is how new power can affect the issue; we have to look at it as a positive thing.
