On Aug. 10, 2020 at about 12:30pm Deng Mabiour walked in to the Village Mall Walk In Clinic in Red Deer, Alberta carrying a hammer and a machete. While inside he attacked Doctor Walter Reynolds a 45-year-old father of two. People said he rushed inside and then they heard screaming from the exam room. When armed officers arrived at the scene they found Mabiour fleeing the scene and he threw a hammer at a police officer. The cops never shot him yet even though he still was wielding a machete in a busy parking lot in the middle of the afternoon. He eventually dropped the machete and officers swooped in. They cuffed him and took him downtown to the station.
Mabiour was charged with first-degree murder, assault with a weapon and assaulting a police officer.
RCMP said the two men were known to each other but did not say whether Mabiour was a patient of Reynolds. Rumor around Red Deer is that Mabiour was beating his wife and kids, Dr. Reynolds found out about it and was going to report him. Again all hear say but believable.
“Did you understand the charges?” asked the judge.
“No, I didn’t understand,” Mabiour replied. “Because I am sick. I lost memory. Listen to me, I don’t remember. I want a doctor.”
Mabiour continued talking as the judge and lawyers spoke.Mabiour in Court
Mabiour appeared in Red Deer court on April 14 following the Alberta Review Board Hearing on Wednesday. A four-week jury trial is scheduled for Nov. 22-Dec 17. Mabiour says he will represent himself despite the judge warning him about the seriousness of the case. Even then Mabiour refused legal aid “A lawyer cannot do anything about my case. No lawyer is good for me in Canada. I’m a Black man,” Mabiour told the judge. Also while there Mabiour said “Listen to me. I don’t remember anything because I’m sick. I want a doctor,” with a heavy accent. Which is as good as saying you did it and know it. Prying at false hopes of fake sympathy for a doctor who left Africa to flee African violence. I will try to update this when more is found out
Deng Mabiour 54 year old South Sudanese refugee described as a loner who came to Canada as a government-sponsored refugee in the late 1990s. He had fled South Sudan and was in a refugee camp in Ethiopia when he emigrated to Vancouver.. His half-brother told news sources that Deng once underwent brain surgery in Vancouver and that the family has a history of mental health problems. His half-brother Deng Mabior, 41, lives in Seattle. He goes by the same first name as his older half-brother. Their surnames have different spellings. “When he was in Sudan, somebody attacked him and hit him on the head,” Mabior said. “Then when he came to Canada, he got brain surgery. That’s what he told me. That is what I know.”
