Hostage John Ridsdel Reportedly Murdered by Terrorist Group Abu Sayyaf

RIP John; remember John's only crime was being a non-Muslim with no money.

John Ridsdel, 68, was taken from a tourist resort along with three others by the Abu Sayyaf group in September last year.

Confirming the death, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called it "an act of coldblooded murder".

On Monday a severed head was found on a remote Philippine island, hours after an Abu Sayyaf ransom deadline expired.

The Philippine army has not confirmed if it belonged to one of the captives.

The group holding Mr. Ridsdel appeared to be a small disorganized group of desperate jungle guerrillas rather than a large organized terrorist cell.

Here is our report when he was taken, the video has since been removed by we have an archived copy.

1 Trudeau condemned the act, so, in his mind, Canada won against those enemies.

2 Was he a sex tourist, or just a real tourist. Poor? Traveling that far? On vacation? Just doesn't add up.

As for Trudeau, he would condemn anything negative he himself doing it, and being the sort of politician he is, would continue doing it. He couldn't win a self-fistfucking contest if he was the only one in it. Putz.
