      Absolutely correct – except for those of us who aren’t.

        Inuk means person so therefore technically you are an Inuk.

          Technically, I decide my identity and no one else. I reject the term Inuk, as is my right.

          I prefer slofflegabber as my preferred noun.

          Technically Inuk means human, back in the day when people used to have encounters with spirit beings, thats how they distinguished people from other beings, be it spirits or animals

      We (a group of people) are Inuk (an individual person)

      And I don’t even speak the language.

        Inuit = a group of people.
        Inuk = an individual person.

    If this guys is now in police custody that means that he as “at large” and NOT “missing”.

      if he was being searched for from a facility or minimum security home.

      he was not being searched for. he was a wanted man.

      there is a big difference there guys.

        What if he was on intermittent jail time meaning he was to report on weekends but released from jail on weekdays.

        Who knows, you guys just straight assume things like any reporters.
        “HE’s at large!”
        everyone I mean including me should really think twice before we say ANYTHING we are as community aren’t supportive anymore. it is always pointing, pointing, pointing….. towards negative, you wonder why so many people aren’t living up to the society anymore.
