No more "Junkie See, Junkie Do"

-- OTTAWA -- The Harper government will appeal a decision by the B.C. Supreme Court that saved North America's only sanctioned safe-injection site from closure at the end of June, Health Minister Tony Clement has confirmed.
Now, I'm sure that this decision to appeal is gonna set off all sorts of moaning and crying in the leftosphere about all those poor addicts... but what about the people who are really being impacted here...
The minister said Vancouver has the second highest rate of violent and property crimes of any major city in the United States or Canada. “Law-abiding Vancouverites are beginning to see that what has been presented as a ‘victimless crime' I the drug trade - is not victimless at all,” said Mr. Clement.
Put that in your syringe... and inject it.

-- TORONTO -- A judge who will decide if a jailhouse video interview with Paul Bernardo can be released to the public says he's worried about the killer's rights.

“Is it fair to have loops playing on TV saying, ‘Look at this psychopath trying to wiggle his way out of this'?"
Well, your honour... it's fairer than what he did to Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy.

Say Judge, while we're talkin' psychos... here's one for you...
-- HAMILTON -- A Hamilton man has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of his 6-week-old son. Police say 26-year-old Terry Legacy was arrested this morning without incident. Police say they got a 911 call on May 11 from the parents of Cohen Legacy, saying the infant was in medical distress.

The boy was taken to hospital, where he later died. An autopsy later ruled the boy's death was a homicide.
So, your honour... here's my question.

Was the previous assault on the other child... just deductible?
Legacy is also charged with aggravated assault stemming from serious injuries suffered last year by another child.
I don't get it.

killer's rights

Should that not qualify as an oxymoron?

Welcome to BC and by extent Canada. Doing drugs = Good. Free Speech = Bad. Some New World Order.

The stupidity of the people of Vancouver is without question, let them enjoy their high crime rates.

However, there are usually enough junkies to go around without encouraging more people to try it out by government sanction: the people of Vancouver are victimizing a few of those junkies who might not have gotten into it if it were not for Insite. And the people of Vancouver have done this simply so that they can get on their high moral horses. Bastards.

Oh Neo, Dear daddy's previous assault is of course deductible especially if it's his own child. Courts and protection will give almost any child back to almost any circumstances if the perpetrator takes a parenting class or anger management. Gotta preserve the family unit and save $$$$$$$ at all costs. Being that that is a given, you gotta wonder about a woman that will over look these trivialities in order to keep her man.

Need to see more of that stomping the bastards chest out for child killers.

Now we have to keep that evil bastard in jail for 3 years, feed and clothe him, provide him with a shrink, when we all know someone should put a bullet between his eyes, and say enough.
