    I wonder if some of those "unreported" thefts are getting citizen court hearings.
    It's getting harder and harder to support the government in the style to which they have become accustomed. They need a lesson in manners and to be taught who serves who.

    We so need a "three strikes" style law here in Kanukistan; third conviction....life or better yet a much more cost effective "short drop with a sudden stop". After a third time the offender has PROVEN beyond any reasonable doubt that they cannot be salvaged; why should we (law abiding citizens) then be subjected to the certainty of this proven, "career criminal" re-offending? As well bail should be AUTOMATICALLY denied after the first conviction or after another set of charges. Unfortunately, as we see demonstrated time after time our elected representatives value the lives of these criminal "wastes of skin" over law abiding, contributing citizens; even to the point of making their "workplace" safer by denying us an efficient and effective means of defending ourselves and our families. This country has gone just so wrong in a very short period of time. IMHO, we started circling the bowl, thanks to Turdo the First with the abolishment of the death penalty.
    Yes, you can fix stupid, but the stupid folks have passed laws against it.

    Those who reoffend while out on recog should face a substantial bail at the very least.
    Nanny staters should find a way to get addicts off the street and cleaned up, for their own good as well as society in general.
    Opening more 'safe injection sites' while emasculating the law-abiding is not the answer.
    I would offer David Milgard as an argument against capital punishment, due to the highly circumstantial nature of the crown's case.
    Perhaps if the evidence was particularly damning (Paul Bernardo videos?) then that penalty could be on the table.

    Unfortunately, the Milgaard is trotted out often as a reason against capital punishment, I do agree that it was a total clusterf__ck, and a good thing he was not hung. But, there was just so much judicial malpractice in his case and yet nobody (crown prosecutors, police) involved has been properly held accountable for this complete travesty of justice. Yes, given our current state of the legal industry, (justice is a joke) capital punishment might not be a good idea. But now there is no motivation for cleaning up the system and restoring actual justice to the system, since now this same kind of unethical activity by law enforcement and the crown can be paid off with taxpayers cash and perpetrators of it get off scott free, pensions and all.
