Death among the criminals

So now they're hollering for more police to combat the shootings in the crime community as yet another person, 'known to the police', was killed in his car. Gang activity, they say. Disputes over drug territory.
I'm wondering why these criminals killing each other is a BAD thing?

Hire that Judge!

A man convicted of a carjacking in New Westminster has been sentenced to nine years. This 29 year old criminal, of no fixed address committed the crime in December 2006 in New Westminster. He hid in the garage until the car owner and her son came out in the morning. He then pulled a gun and stole the vehicle. He was arrested later that day after crashing the stolen car.
What happened to the usual slap on the wrist because the perp had a bad childhood? Where's the usual lenient sentence because his momma didn't love him? What about rehabilitating him on his own recognizance? Maybe give him some money to buy his own car?

Where is that judge! We need more like him! Hire the guy, put him in charge of the drug dealer sentencing for the creeps who sell to children! Maybe the addict car thieves who try to run down cops. And the illegal immigrant street racers who kill innocent passers by.
Thank you Judge, for being brave and protecting law abiding citizens. Maybe he heard the public outcry. Maybe it's a start. Keep up the good work.

Elections Canada new poster

Elections Canada, in defiance of Parliament, say people CAN be masked when they vote.
So far, The Lone Ranger, Darth Vader, Batman and Robin, The Masked Marvel, The Phantom of the Opera, Zorro, Spiderman and several bank robbers have endorsed this policy.
One thief was heard to say, "Why should I lose my vote just 'cause I'm a criminal?"
Another SuperHero commented, "If you want the world safe you can't expect me to take off all my Supersuit just to vote."
A burglar whispered, "I voted twelve times for Louie."
The Man in the Iron Mask echoed, "At least now I can leave the rust on."
One Election Officer said, "If you've got nothing to hide, then you won't mind keeping your mask on."
A new Elections Canada poster was being readied for use ......

... and there is no truth to the rumor that raccoons have been voting for Tammy Faye Bakker.

Mulroney vs Trudeau

Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, in a new book, criticizes former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau as having a lack of moral fiber to lead. He slams Trudeau for his teenage years as an activist. No mention in his book about the Airbus scandal or his own moral fiber while in office as an adult.
This from the man who many consider the biggest crook Canada ever had. Who thousands wonder where he is getting the money to live like a billionaire. Who the RCMP may be STILL investigating for bribery in the Airbus scandal. Who was the first Prime Minister in Canadian history to be the subject of a criminal probe. Who even tried to steal the furniture from 24 Sussex Drive.
Who threatens to sue anyone who looks into his background at the drop of a secret paper.

Except: Stevie Cameron, who wrote the book, On The Take, an investigative report on the scandalous Mulroney and a bombshell exposé of crime, corruption and greed on his watch. For some obscure reason he hasn't sued Ms Cameron. Hmmm.
"I am not a crook."
Where have we heard that phrase before?

Today in History . . . Sept 1

1914. The last known passenger pigeon died in the Cincinnati zoo.
There were an estimated 5 billion birds prior to the mid 1800s in North America. Hunters shot them out of the sky for 'sport' and they were also used for food for slaves, restaurants and even agricultural fertilizer. In order to catch them easily, hunters would light smoky fires under the nesting trees, with as many as 100 nests. The young would jump out of their nests and into hunters' bags! One hunter alone shipped 3 million pigeons in a single year. They'd soak grain with alcohol to intoxicate them and make them easier to kill.
The term 'stool pigeon' comes from the times too. Hunters would capture a live pigeon, sew his eyelids shut, and use him as a decoy tied to a stool!
Sort of makes a macho guy wanta go hunting, doesn't it?
