Remember the Montreal Massacre

I have only the vaguest memories of this myself, and that must be second hand. On December 6th 1989, I was probably in the jungle not getting much news. Anyway, Sciencewoman reminds us:

On December 6, 1989, an armed gunman named Marc Lepine entered an engineering classroom at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal, Quebec. He demanded all 48 men in the class leave the room, lined up all 9 women against a wall…

    Looking at it from an evolutionary perspective – this guy should have been hung, drawn, quartered, and impaled (I just love the rough justice of old england and transsylvania) for eliminating those girls from the gene pool.
    Not to put a too fine point too it:
    “Gamil’s father had contempt for women and believed that they were only intended to serve men”
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marc_L%C3%A9pine

    which is an idea strongly based in religion, catholizism as well as islam. I think that might explain a few things about this arsehole.
    “Marc Lépine was buried in the Cimetičre Notre-Dame-des-Neiges in Montreal, a few blocks from where he committed the massacre.”

    I hope there are enough men with the proper attitude in montreal to meet for a “piss down” and a formal desecration on this buggers grave.

    Too bad we do not have those nice three posters outside towns anymore were that type of “man” could be buried and forgotten.
