South Asians may be overrepresented among B.C.’s gangs. People within the community have been accused of not doing enough about it. But South Asian parents are leading the way to stop their children from going deeper into criminal activity. And progress is being made, if you ask a Vancouver-based gang intervention officer. “There’s no more code of silence,” said Sgt. Jag Khosa, gang intervention officer with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit — British Columbia (CFSEU-BC).
How do you know whether your kid may have joined a gang? There are plenty of signs to suggest that they have, if you ask Sgt. Jag Khosa, gang intervention officer with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit — British Columbia (CFSEU-BC). Kids from any background can end up in gangs. And many do. Khosa said one of the keys to keeping kids as young as 14 or 15 years old out of gangs is to look for clear signs of involvement.
They’re filled with glitz, bravado and lyrics that are all about carrying guns.They’re South Asian gangster rap videos. And in real life, many who feature in them have never touched a gun, according to one Vancouver-based DJ.WATCH: B.C.

3) Seems here in Canada the narrative is, as a Sikh, if you mention Human Rights abuses or fact that no one’s been brought to justice for ‘84 Delhi systematic targeting/killing of thousands of Sikhs, then you somehow must be a supporter of violent terrorism. Epic Fail. #cdnpoli
2) My observation in Canada last few weeks: Epic failure to reach out and hear opinions from vast majority of Sikhs who condemn violent acts of terrorism yet have hurt/anger over lack of justice for ‘84 #cdnpoli
1) I reported extensively on home grown UK terrorism/attacks/wars in Afghanistan, Iraq @BBCNews. Vast majority British Muslims condemned terror attacks but at same time were allowed to air their anger/hurt at foreign policy/human rights abuses in countries outside UK #cdnpoli
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
