Start at the top

In my opinion the public is unable to differentiate who to fear the most, the police or the criminals?

When will Prime Minister Stephen Harper, in his effort to fight crime, start at the top of the crime wave? A good place would be his own office and  cabinet.

Since it is now public knowledge that you have a convicted fraud artist on your staff, time to quit the “Cock and Bull” excuses coming from your office. Another area that is way out of control is the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. This is something Mr. Harper, clearing the waters the “Higher Ups” in the “R.C.M.P.” at present are unable accomplish. In my opinion the public is unable to differentiate who to fear the most, the police or the criminals?

The two most blatant cases of miscarriage of justice involve the same R.C.M.P. officer Mr. Robinson. He was the man in charge at Vancouver Airport when no less than four burly R.C.M.P. officers tasered a man coming to Canada from Poland. The second incident involved Corporal Robinson  killing a motorcycle rider.

These two incidents show me, with many more on the books, that the police indeed have a license to kill.

So, Mr. Harper, as the top man, your fight against crime should start at the top, where the most criminal elements get away with the most atrocious crimes that are happening almost daily, with no consequences to the perpetrators.
