Canadian Law Enforcement: Stuck On Stupid

More Mollycoddlng Mountie Moronics:

More police officers are spending time in court rather than chasing down bad guys, while some paroled murderers and sex offenders get passes to amusement parks, the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police charged Tuesday.

Lengthy court delays, soaring costs and lax prison sentences are making a mockery of the justice system, association president and York Region police Chief Armand La Barge said as he announced a new committee to work with government and community leaders to make the system more effective.

La Barge listed a raft of complaints he said clogged the system and kept officers from doing their jobs - among them a critical lack of justices of the peace, overbooked courts "and a growing insensitivity towards victims of crime."

"Those are the type of situations that really do make a mockery of the criminal justice system," La Barge said.

"Truth in sentencing, meaningful and enforceable rights for victims of crime, a full review of our parole system and elimination of the red tape and bureaucracy that is strangling our criminal justice system and costing our taxpayers millions of dollars may well turn the tide of crime."

Owen Sound police Chief Tom Kaye said he knows of cases where federal parolees get passes to local theme parks.

"The system is just flat broken," said an exasperated Kaye.

"If you go out to (Canada's) Wonderland and you ran into somebody who had already victimized you . . .what would you tell the victim?"

Ah, letting rapists and muggers go right back to the theme parks where they just offended. Hey, if it worked for Michael Dukakis...

This is why I'm always so amused by Canadian and European claims of being more advanced than America. Let the record show America already did all of this stupid bleeding-heart crap, through the seventies and eighties.

These people are twenty years behind us but they think they're fifty years ahead.

Can't wait 'till they put "the first man on the moon" in the year 2070.

Thanks to RCL.
