August 17th mark 6 years since my son Aaron Shoulders was swarmed and brutally attacked, beaten and stabbed by 12 Asian gang members in front of Nyla nightclub. Aaron was an innocent bystander and died a torturous death on September 1, 2003. The case still remains unsolved and the killer(s) are still free, and to date still NO witnesses have come forward. Murdered 6 years ago – NO arrests made – NO Justice served – The Violence continues!

"He who does not punish evil, commands it to be done!"

We are uniting and making a stand for Justice and are the voices of those who are no longer here to speak!
“He who stands for nothing… falls for everything!”

The Walk is:

  • An awareness walk in honor of our Murdered Loved Ones
  • An outcry against lenient sentencing and lack of Justice in our Country
  • A protest against the escalating violence; especially against our youth
  • A platform to give a voice to families of Murder Victims

Why we walk

  • Calgary's murder rate has more than tripled since 2003!
  • Calgary has 88 unsolved murder cases!
  • Gang violence is on the rise! Gang members continue to get away with murder!
  • Violent criminals have no deterrence!
  • Short and lenient sentences for murderers means they are free to re-offend!
  • Nationally, more homicides are committed by knife vs. guns! - Stats Canada -
  • Lastly... something has to change!

Upon reaching the Court House we will have the reading of victims names, dates, outcome of case and sentencing, followed by a special song (written) by Aaron's sister, and a moment of silence for all victims. On return to the former Nyla nightclub we will launch balloons for our victims.

Our 4th Annual AARON SHOULDERS WALK FOR JUSTICE FOR MURDER VICTIMS INTERNATIONAL, held on September 5th in Calgary was the most powerful of all previous years. The turnout, support and response was awesome and the weather was perfect. As we walked through down town we had much more positive response from the bi standers as they were in agreement with our protest.

Nine Families and friends walked for a LOVED ONE who was brutally murdered. We had about 100-120 people in total.

Our Calgary Police did a fantastic job leading us to the Court Centre and back... THANK YOU! The 'Guardian Angels' joined us once again to show their support as well... THANK YOU!

Calgary Currie MLA Dave Taylor was represented by his Assistant for the first time and showed his support... THANK YOU!

We had excellent Media coverage... THANK YOU to all the NEWS media for doing an awesome job in covering this important event!

A BIG THANK YOU to all the Families and Friends that walked with us, I understand it is a very painful, difficult and emotional day for us, therefore I appreciate your participation and support. A very special THANK YOU to my daughter Chicoma & Johnny for writing & performing the song "A Picture Of You" it was truly amazing!
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their donations through the Ribbon Campaign and Bottle-Drive, and to all who helped in making this event a success.

*Middlesbrough, UK will hold their 4th Annual AARON SHOULDERS WALK FOR JUSTICE INTERNATIONAL in October 2009*
