  • Corruption better known as Crime abounds in all Sectors

    Yes Jim "What a CORRUPT SOCIETY we have become, indeed. There is Corruption in Government, Corruption in Business and Corruption and as a result the Justice System is suffering from the first two sets of criminals, especially when they know who did the crime and cannot punish them. I have been broken into twice since September, (twice, in six months) the first time through the ground floor door, the second time the cat burglar broke into my second floor by scaling my balcony, a roof overhang over a window on my main floor and then into the top story. I have been forced into putting alarms in my house which is an extra cost to me, a cost that I should not have to be burdened with. Even though the police have not caught the person who vandalized my home and violated the air space within my home to the point, my home doesn't feel like a home anymore it feels more like a prison, they do feel they know the name of the person but can't do anything about it. The person was caught in my area a week after my house was broken into the first ime, the night he was caught he had broken into a number of homes all around me. The name of the burglar was suggested to me by a nice police officer, they are pretty sure he was the one who did it, I even know the name since they suggested it to me, I never heard of the individual before. The second break in at my home the person who the police thing did the break-in had just gotten out of prison after doing time for the robberies he had been fingered for 6 months earlier and for which he had spent 2 months inside prison, he got out then he came right back to steal what he didn't get the first time. I think he had broken into around 30 homes altogether during the first break in spree over a couple month period. To get back to the way we were in this beautiful province when we were almost crime free, first we have to clean up the Corruption in the Government and the Corporations, THEN the Justice System should begin to heal. When we can say we have "Just" Governments and Corporations, I think we will be fine.

    These punks will continue their life of crimes because they know ahead of time that they will get off with a slap on the hand! When will it stop? If the parents can't control their kids then send them to Boot Camp. Once they taste that maybe they'll think twice before doing senseless crimes. Every time we read of crimes being committed by youth, there is always a phrase saying " Breach of .." so it's not their first time so it will continue and become more and more violent. It's time the justice system change!! Going after the parents and printing their names & photos might help too.
