Two Canadian heroes

I was remiss not to make a previous mention of the Star of Courage recipients from Kabul.

Roszko update

As I'd suggested based on early reports on calibre and country of origin, the weapon used to kill four Mounties was almost certainly an HK91 assault rifle. As it seems clear now they were all killed almost simultaneously as they walked through a doorway, it seems highly likely it had been illegally converted to a fully automatic weapon by cop killer James Roszko.

UPDATE: I was wrong. Apparent testimony from Roszko's previous life as to his having converted his HK seems to have been wrong, too... or he picked up a new one.
